LOL Caturday!


Sorry dear Readers that I've been absent from the bloggy world since Tuesday. It's been a REALLY, REALLY ROUGH week for me over here. I humbly request that you all cover my eldest Alex with your prayers as she was in a near fatal car accident in Germany. She's a very new, inexperienced driver and those roads are very narrow and twisty-turny. She lost control of her car and it rolled many times. She's ok, but really banged up. It's so hard for me to not be there with her and have her soooooo far away. This motherhood gig sure is tough sometimes!!! Thank you in advance for your love, support and prayers!!

Alex will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hard for me to imagine being so far away from my child if something like that happened to either one of them. I hope Alex makes a speedy recovery. *hugs to you*

Loved the caturday pics....specially the one of the cat in the snow..."i can't feel my butt".

Yaya said...

Oh my gosh, I was worried something was going on. Poor Alex. :(

You must be on an emotional roller coaster. You must be relieved that your child is going to be okay, but I can't imagine receiving that news.

K said...

Sending out LOTS of prayers for Alex and her quick recovery and for you Jeannie....i pray for your peace of mind and calmness and trust in who is helping care for Alex. Blessings on all of you.

I am very sorry to hear that! I am sure you are on pins and needles not being there to offer Motherly comforts! My prayers are with HER but also with YOU as I know your Heart is torn! Take care!

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. It must be very hard. My son just started driving...yikes.

blueviolet said...

Those are so cute! What a nice cheery blog post. I needed it!

MaBunny said...

Oh Jeannie, so sorry to hear about Alex - my thoughts and prayers are with you and her at this time. I'm glad she came out of it alive, albeit bruised and banged up. /hugs

Stephanie Faris said...

Oh gosh. Your family is in my prayers.

Cherie said...

Oh Jeannie I am so glad your daughter is all right but that is such a helpless feeling for a mom.

Motherhood is a tough gig sometimes and it doesn't stop just because they get older.

Prayers to your family! Stay strong :D

Oh my goodness! I am sorry to hear about Alex!! I am glad she is going to be okay. She is in my thoughts.

I just about peed my pants on the cat video. I had to watch it again...it was so darn funny!!

I tried sending you an email but lately AOL has been flaking on me. Just wanted to let you know that I sent my swap partner her card and I sent her a message on that too:)

{{Hugs}}

The photos were quite funny! In such a contrast about your post... My prayers are definately extended to your daughter during this time. Although you cannot physically be there with her, God is always by her side.

Jeannie~ so sorry to hear about your daughter Alex. It's so difficult when our children are not close by when we want to be with them. I hope you can be with Alex soon and help her through her healing process.

I really got a chuckle from your Kittie pics and especially the video.
I shared it on my FB.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
