Morning Time

Mornings have in the past been the hardest by far. But since McKenzie went to the boarding school and is now no longer getting up and going to school with us, it has been much more peaceful. But not always! Tori, my 7 year old, had a hard time this morning. She did not want to go to school. She cried and said she missed me when she was at school. She said, "Mommy, school is long and when I get home it is only a short time that I see you before I have to go to bed." It broke my heart. I know that with McKenzie being home and not going to school right now is so hard for her. Even though we are doing homeschooling for Kenz and she is not just playing, she is still here and Tori is not. It just doesn't seem fair that this sickness keeps affecting Tori. She seemed so sad this morning and that is not our "Toe". She is our happy one, full of joy. I did finally get a smile on her face when she saw the baby. Babies are such a blessing. There is no way in this world, in my opinion, that you cannot look at a baby and not smile.


  1. Amy, thank you so much for doing this. I will follow daily as my heart aches for you and I have tears running down my cheeks reading this! How I wish I had the skills to help you in this situation. I hate feeling so helpless to ease your pain! I will continue to pray for your family. We love you all and pray for peace in that loving home soon.

  2. You are welcome Suzie. Your words brought tears to my eyes. I am doing this mostly for selfish reasons-to help me deal. But it is an extra blessing when it touches or helps someone else. Thank you for your prayers.
