Short Reprieve...

Hello everyone.

I'm going to get a little mushy here... so you are forewarned.

But I want you to know how much you all have strengthened me because I know that your comments are because you are my friends whether we have met in real life or not... and that means so much, and even though my sister and BIL are complete strangers to some of you, you have still helped them with your prayers and good thoughts and well wishes.

I want you to know that they are at peace as much as they can be... they know the road ahead of them is going to be tough... but they are also at peace for knowing that their special boy is up in heaven with his Heavenly Father.

The Funeral will be on Wednesday for all of you who are local and would like to be there. Please go HERE for further information.

I will take a short reprieve from blogging until after the Funeral. So I will be back again on Thursday with funny stories about New York.

I want you to know that although this experience as changed me, for the better, I am also who I am. I deal with things through laughter and humor and the beauty that comes through that. I want to continue to share my funny experiences and my life and my obsessions and quirky characteristics and continue to be a part of yours!

So don't give up on me (unfollow me) it would really be selfish of you guys to have me making VooDoo dolls during my reprieve! :)

Love you guys,

Hey, I love chillin' in your comment box. Laughter really is great medicine when life goes in the crapper. I'll still be around, I'll always be grateful for your humor. You may never know how much it helps me get through my tough times. LY!

Man I am fighting tears reading Deyton's blog... I can't imagine what a humbling, spiritual, and difficult situation this must be but I know that a knowledge of the plan of salvation and testimony of the gospel will help ease the pain. I will for sure keep them in my prayers!

Melinda said...

Take all the time you need, you're amazing and so is your family! Just know we're all thinking of you and think you're fantastic!

The Wixom Zoo said...

Blogging friends stick together, right? Through thick and thin, funny and serious. I'll hang out and wait for you. I hope that the next several days go as well as they can for you and your family.

SciFi Dad said...

We'll be here.

Give my condolences to your family, please.

humor can heal - and you KNOW I'll have to be dragged out kicking and screaming before I ever "unfollow" you :) See you here Thursday... and lunch maybe? Pat's coming through town that day :)

mother goose said...

fill your cup and your families cup. But, I think you should still make a voodoo or a doodoo doll of me and make me do weird things, but now that I think of it, maybe someone has already made a doodoo doll out of me and that is why I am so quirky and sometimes lends to a doodoo attitude. LOL
actually in order to have a doodoo attitude I have to specifically try to be that way. seriously, i purposely try to have one of those attitudes once in a while and you know what I feel good about it, too! LOL
can't wait til you get back.

April said...

I just ruined a perfectly good voodoo doll...darn it! Love you!!!

Anjeny said...

Aw Shelle, I wouldn't have you any other way..lol. Besides, who wants to be made into a voodoo doll?lol.

Take as much time as you need and know you will always have a friend/follower on this side of the ocean no matter what. I just wish I could do more for you and your family so I'll just continue to pray for your sis and her hub and for you and your family.

Love ya bunches girl and no, you don't have to become somebody different...I actually like all the sides of you I've read on your blog, makes you more real to me. Take it easy girl and don't get mugged in NY..lol.

I think that laughter can be a lifeline to sanity. Just look at Mash. And I have no doubt that Dayton and you sister would not have it any other way. It is hard to be the survivor though.

I know you and your family will make it through this eventually. Just don't have unrealistic expectations of yourself.

Blogging can be great therapy though, as I well know. And laughing is a good way to get away from the pain.

Hugs, and do you think there is anyway you could do lunch on Thursday? I should be coming through about noon. T wants chinese. So you guys name the place and I will be there.

Take the time you need to gain some peace. Things like this are so hard to understand.

I'll look forward to your return when you're ready.

Hugs

No voodoo dolls necessary. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers, and we will be here whenever you need us.

Smonkey Mama said...

I am planning on attending the viewing today. It will be good to see all of you! I love you guys so much!! Loves and hugs!!

Camilla said...

Shelle, you´re a funny girl. I KNOW that your nephew is well, all is well! Love from Brazil.

PS: I hope that my english is correct! :D

Zu said...

You all just take care of each other, we aren't going anywhere. :-)

Can you make the voodoo dolls anyway though? Kinda curious as to what they would look like. Minus the voodoo of course. ;-)

I just got back from camping and just read about your nephew. I am so sorry about your families loss. That breaks my heart!!

Angie's Spot said...

Shelle,

I'm catching up on my reader and just saw this heart breaking news about your nephew. My thoughts and well-wishes are with you and your family during this very trying time. Everything happens for a reason and clearly, Baby Deyton is destined for bigger things. While that doesn't make the hurt easier, hopefully that will bring some peace.

All the best,
Angie

Ohhh I am so sorry.
I was gone (out of town) when you posted this. I was so hoping it wouldn't turn out this way.
I hope your sister and BIL are OK.
This must be one of the hardest things to go through ever.
I wish I had words...
Sending hope for the future and peace.

So sorry.

Here you Go SciFi Dad
