    To my fellow BYCers...

    This week has and is a difficult one. We lost a loved one over the weekend and we will be heading down to California from Idaho for services this week. The most difficult part is that the services are on my daughters 17th birthday and it is her great grandmother (my husband's grandmother). Both girls are being completely unselfish knowing that this trip is going to take what we had saved for Christmas and my daughter's birthday. As a mother this wrenches my heart like you wouldn't believe. I am blessed to have two teenage girls that came to my of their own accord telling me that they didn't need anything for Christmas and that the trip to California was more important. With my husband being self employed income stops when he's not here to work. Please keep us and especially the girls in your prayers. I know at 15 and 17 years old, the memories of this year will stay with them forever and I can't help but cry everytime I think about it. Please, pray we have a safe trip and that God takes care of them and blesses them in ways they never thought possible.

    Thank you all!

    Please drive carefully. Often, time spent with loved ones is the best present for a birthday and christmas.

    I'm sorry about your family's loss,[​IMG] but some of those tears should be tears of joy over the incredible girls that you and your husband are raising.

    Thank you all for your prayers. And, yes, I am very proud of both my girls. We will be leaving first thing in the morning.

    Take pictures along the way and put them in a photo album, give 1 to each girl. Be safe.

    Sorry for your loss. Bless their hearts. They know the true meaning of family, and to them they are giving, and that is the spirit of Christmas.
    They will be rewarded for their selflessness. Prayers to you and yours.
