Baby Steps

Since Scott's death, I am a new person, learning to live in a new world, one in which he does not exist. So I am just beginning to take baby steps each day just to get through to the next day. My friends have told me that they have missed my blog and the bits and pieces of what goes on in my little part of the world, and at my attempts at being creative. They say, that I started this as therapy when I had another loss, and that I should begin again. I will take baby steps with this also. I'm afraid that some days, I may not have pleasant things to say, or I may just ramble on making no sense what so ever. My dear friends please be patient with me and continue to keep us in your prayers.

I am starting back by participating in Pat's Saturday Night challenge. We were to make a treat holder. When I said baby steps I meant baby steps. I decided to just take a decorating bag fill it with Easter treats, and tie it off with ribbons and cut out little leaves that looked like carrot tops. Well that was my intentions, We settled for just a bow.

We all have to take baby steps in this life, be it for pleasure, pain, or whatever. Welcome back dear friend and you are so brave to be doing this. We all love you and are pulling for you in your baby steps.

You are in the right directions my dear friend, baby steps. We don't expect anyone that has gone through what you have to take a giant leap forward. Yes it's ok to voice what you feel, we'll understand. We are your ears and shoulders to lean on. It's ok, if some days you don't make sense at all (we all have those days.) We love all of you. BTW the treat back looks yummy and I bet those are for the girls.

Baby steps, big steps, little steps, brave steps .... take whatever steps you can. Your post made me cry for your loss, my heart goes out to you and your family, I hope that you can lose yourself in your hobby for just a moment or two, and gain comfort in the knowledge that friends are holding you in prayer,
big hugs

Hi Shelia, it is so good to hear you.....I hope you will be free with your thoughts as you write your blog and know that we are all here to listen. Just talk it out, and even ramble and we will be here to listen and love on you. Just take it moment by moment and do what you can, and if you can't in some moments it's okay. Know that I am still saying my prayers for you...Donna

Your baby steps will help you get through this tragic time of your life. Friends and strangers are out here praying for you to keep the strength you need to heal and lending a shoulder when you don't have the strength.
Your treat bag makes me smile :)
