Thank God for Great Friends

I think my husband summed it up nicely when he, after seeing the e-mails and comments of support, said, "There are sure are a LOT of nice people out there".  Thank you all so very much for your thoughts and prayers.

The last couple of weeks, I've found out that the trick to help your kids through difficult situations is to keep them entertained as much as possible.  This is where our neighbors, Karen and Alanna, came in.  I don't think I will ever be able to thank them enough for putting their lives on hold to watch the boys and keeping things running smoothly in the home front.  

While Sun Kissed Husband and I dealt with the unpleasantries of cleaning out my mom's apartment, Karen and Alanna entertained, fed, entertained again, fed some more, and bathed our boys.

And if that wasn't enough, they tidied-up, washed AND folded laundry, and cleaned up the kitchen so we wouldn't have to come back to deal with the unpleasantries of cleaning out our own house.  They are truly a God-send.

What great friends! Love when friends just sort of know where you need the most help. Thanks Karen and Alana for being there for our bloggy friend!

That was the best thing you could've done for your boys is keep their attention on being little boys and having fun. Bless your neighbors for making that possible. My pal, Jennie, took my son trick or treating and took care of him for us when we went through this. Hope you're doing well.
