Happy Late Easter, Family Passing, Giveaway

I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday this past weekend.

Once again, I apologize for not posting sooner but we did have another passing in the family. My father in law passed away last week. This makes number 4 since mid february. I just don't get it. Sometimes I feel like we are just the most unlucky people. And often wonder what we did to deserve this?

I mean, we are decent people. We work, respect others, have good family upbringing, are close with family, etc. Why do so many bad things happen to good people? I suppose I could pose the question at any given time and still end up without an answer. Seems no one has the answers but it's still a question that weighs on me a lot.

I have noticed just a few suggestions on the giveaway. I'll give you a little update on that. I am almost sure of what I will be doing for it. I can't give all the details yet, but I do have plans in the works for it for this week. You will just have to stay tuned!

My oldest daughter turns 17 on the 21st but we will be celebrating it this weekend. She got her first car for easter and oh boy is she ever lucky! I will post more details about it later this week too when I get the video uploaded to go with it!

Until next time...

Mandy My heart goes out to you. I know how you feel. I've been there and it feels like everything around you is falling down around you. They say everything happeneds for a reason but sometimes you wonder why. And what you have done to deserve all this. So I will keep you and your family in my prayers and praying that some of this hard time comes off you and your family.

My heart goes out to you and your family. You have been going through alot the past couple of months.
Please remember that God is in control and even though we don't understand, He knows how you feel and will bring you through it. And someday there will be a answer to all your questions. Just knowing that helps me.
Please don't get me wrong because I still question all the's only human. (Just trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5)
Our life here is just for a little while and then forever with Him, our loved ones and friends. Never to be apart again! Truly our greatest gift to come.

Big Huggs coming your way!!!!!

Mandy I know that I am really late in commenting on this post but was just visiting and noticed your losses. I just wanted you to know that my family experienced this same kind of loss in 2007. I lost 4 family members in less than a year's time, most of them within months of each other. One was my mom who practically passed in my arms and very unexpectedly. I thought I would never get over it and then before I knew it 2 more family members passed. I could not understand why it was happening and I knew that I couldn't live through another one.
But I'm here to tell you that it does get better. You will make it and while we may never have the answers we seek, I found comfort in knowing God had a plan and I hope that you and your family can find comfort in that, too.

Many Blessings,
