Good Morning Sweet Warriors :) I'm just checking in with all of you as I said I would do. If I'm not able, I've given my daughter the information she needs to get on here should I get sick. Speaking of, that beautiful little girl of mine threw a beautiful tribute party for me this past Saturday and I'm beside myself at all the people, kind words, gifts, flowers, etc. Not only is my girl an RN that works 12+ hour shifts, she is still in school full time, newly married, new home owner, and so much more, she put up the coolest tribute I've ever seen. She put my ancestors in albums with old black and whites that date back to the 1800's identified and preserved, made a ton of wonderful food along with pink frosted breast cancer ribbon cookies :), and I could go on forever with all that my little sweetheart has done, she is amazing and adorable!!

I also wanted to say, without bringing up any specifics, because it doesn't matter, and it only causes hurt; I'm a very forgiving person and of course I accept with honor, all and any apologies. I'm all for peace, love, kindness, and the warmth that we get/give on this site. It was wrong of me to post a PM and cause so much hurt, and I'm very sorry for any that I did.

Rebecca (hearts-in-hand): Please accept my apology as well and I pray you'll continue to come here and be a part of this great group. Peace, strength, and miles of love to you dear sister :)

I'm holding in ok. I have an RN (today) that comes once a week, a PCT that comes once a week, and Chaplins as well. It's hard for me to even think of that fact that I'm at lifes end, and I cry every time I think of it. It's hard to accept all of this!! When I look into my children/step childrens eyes, it breaks my heart to think of what they are about to go through, as I lost my Mom in 2007, I know very well :( I find myself trying to numb the pain by pretending this isn't happening, or not thinking at all. I'm not driving much any more, maybe once or twice a week, this really makes me sad, I used to put 100 miles on a day, now I'm more at home and doing a whole lot of nothing. Accepting all of this has been a hard pill to swallow, and I think it'll always be that way, kind of hard to avoid the obvious.

I'm praying for all of you every day, and you are all on my mind as well. I'm going to try and catch up on the boards so I'll close at that or I'll babble on forever lol.

MIles of Love,
~Kari

What an amazing daughter and how sweet of her to hold that party for you! But, you are amazing, so, it is in the genes. Your daughter had no choice but to be amazing, just like you!

I am always praying for you Kari, praying for a miracle.

Kari,

I'm so glad you were able to have such a great gathering led by your sweet daughter. It sounds like you enjoyed every moment. You remind me a lot of myself in the way you look at life. I'm scared for you too, as I don't want you to go. You are such an inspirational woman and you have no idea how much you have touched all our lives. I pray for you and wish you only peace and comfort and time with your family. God loves you and so do I.

I have no words of wisdom as I cannot imagine what you're going through right now. I can only say that you have a permanent spot on my prayer list each night, you have helped me more than you will ever know and your courage and sweetness continue to inspire me.

to have you as a 'Mom', as you are blessed to have her as a 'Daughter'. What a touching
way of showing you -- how much you are loved, and cherished.

I pray that our Lord provides you, as well as your children -- the strength, courage
and will power to put 1 foot in front of the other -- each and every day.

Love you to pieces === up to heaven, and back Kari!

Kari,
Your strength and courage are amazing. I find you to be a source of inspiritation to me. I'm so glad that I have had the honor of knowing you on this board. I'm not sure I could handle all this with the grace that you are showing. Your daughter takes after her mother in the awesome dept. She had an excellent teacher. I love the tribute idea. I'd rather hear it now than not at all.

You certainly do have a wonderful loving daughter. For her to do this for you was a real act of love and for all of your friends and family to be there with you just shows how much everyone loves you. You are an amazing person and we love hearing from you so please keep "babbling".

Hugs,

your lovely family loves you. What a special bond between a Mother and Daughter. She sounds amazing and as mentioned, it's no surprise as she was raised by you. Despite what you must be feeling, your words come across full of wisdom and peace. You have your kindred spirits happily listening to your "Babble" so please, babble on Kari.

Prayers and hugs for you,

Sylvia

Do you have plans for Thanksgiving Kari? One of the things that I am thankful for is that I know you, maybe just because of this site, but, it is a great pleasure to have a pink sister like you!

Hope you have a nice holiday!

Double and triple ditto all the kindred's posts. The love your daughter has shown for you just proves what a wonderful friend and mother you are to her. You are so lucky to have each other and such a wonderful relationship. As usual, I'm so inspired by your courage and grace. As always, you are in my prayers.

As difficult as this time is for you and yours, it must be gratifying to know that you raised a wonderful daughter - and are surrounded by family and friends who love you and each other. That will continue and you played a significant role in the interactions that occur amongst these people.

Thank you for including us in this circle. Know that we love you, too, and we do need to hear from you. Thank you.

That's what you are. AND your daughter too. She takes after you...that's for sure. No words can express how I feel right now. And I usually can express myself very well.

Just know ... my heart aches when I read your posts. I don't want to believe .... gah .... I cannot say it.

I love you ... you are beautiful inside and out. Prayers and love coming your way.

God Bless
