A Gift from a Wonderful Friend

Imagine my surprise when the UPS truck pulled up to my home in Tennessee yesterday, I didn't have anything ordered so was wondering if he had the wrong house. No, He was at the right house and I got a surprise package from a wonderful lady who has become a great friend. "Steph of Angelic Accents" We met about a year ago when I joined a great group of ladies through a chat group on Ebay. Steph was so sweet to send me a beautiful poem in remembrance of my Daughter. Of course I cried the rest of the day as it is all so true. Some days are so hard to get through and you can never know the pain of loosing a child unless you have been there.
Steph has shown me the kindness in her heart, It always amazes me how you can become a friend with someone you have never met and how we are all so much alike in so many ways.
I thank you sweet friend.

Stacey now lives in our heart and I love talking about and sharing all the good times we had with family and friends, Stacey was a wonderful person, Mom and friend. I am so thankful that Miranda had enough time with her Mom to have so many wonderful memories. She is now our guardian angel.
Be sure you stop over and visit Steph at Angelic Accents as she has an amazing Ebay store with goodies you won't be able to resist.
Oh! for a lighter note, My sister met her husband through the puter and from across the US. She from West Virginia and he from Orgen. They have been together for about 6 years, I will share the story with you later.

Okay, now Steph has ME crying, sugar! She's the sweetest chick, isn't she? Jack and I were talking about you this morning when I told him I didn't know how you maintain 2 households. He asked me how far your daughter's house is from yours in W.V. and I said I didn't know. That got me to thinking about you and how you are feeling today, sugar.

It is a very beautiful poem. "Your heart is now my home. . . " Stephanie is very dear.

I cannot, and will never attempt to feel such a loss for you are right. It is difficult to feel that deep graveness when I cannot even fully understand that kind of loss.

To empathize is very difficult. But, I believe, one in his little way can listen. One can ask of Him to give/provide you the comfort your family needs which I (and others like me) am not able to.

Dear Judy, I'm so glad that the print arrived safely. Your UPS man is better than mine ~ so glad the glass didn't break. You are very special to me & I know that Stacey was a precious lady because she was a part of YOU & Darrell. Miranda will be blessed by her cherished memories of her mother & by the fact that you & Darrell are doing so much to keep her content in her home with her friends, school activities, etc. More love & prayers are sent your way than you will ever know!

Big Hugs,
Angelic Accents
