Friday Friends

I have theeeee best husband and friends! Ever!

Yesterday was a rough day. All I can say is that sometimes life is just plain hard. I was exhausted.

My sweet husband came home with flowers for me, and a card that said, "you are the greatest gal a guy could ask for." And these weren't just any flowers. Nope. Since Pat couldn't remember which I liked more - daisies or tulips - he brought both. Can I hear a nice big, 'awwwwww!'

This morning, a good friend came by for coffee. She loves me (and I love her) so she brought me a french vanilla from Tim Horton's. Time was short b/c I had lots of running around to do, so I figured we'd visit for a short while and go our seperate ways. Leave it to Stacie to surprise me! She sent me on my way and stayed home with the 3 that were here today. She brought food for lunch. She played Memory and War with them. She even baked muffins! I could've cried. (Actually, I did shed a couple tears, but then pulled it together.)

I should also mention Christine, who has emailed and phoned and prayed for me about a dozen times in the past 24 hours. And my mom - ditto to the previous, PLUS she came over to get my organizing butt in gear. (We went through a massive amount of papers! Three garbage bags and three filing boxes worth. Whew!) And my dear friends who emailed me encouragement, prayers, and challenging thoughts throughout my day - April and Peggy.

Seriously, you guys bless me. I'm overwhelmed. And so you know, though I'm still pretty raw, I feel better today. God's doing some tough work in me, but we're getting through it together.


  1. Hey Tyler,

    If I would have know you were in need and raw I would have prayed too...
    So I do not know what went on but I do know this much..I don't need to "know" to pray for someone in need..
    So even thought I was not there covering you in prayer yesterday..I WILL tonight!
    God Bless you

  2. How blessed you are to have people like that in your life!

  3. Thanks for stopping by, and good luck on the blog design contest.

    I enjoyed visiting your blog. You have such wonderful caring friends and your husband scored a big two thumbs up for those flowers!

    Blessings, Joanne


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
