Sometimes, something happens that is so sudden, so jarring, so gut-wrenchingly cruel and soul shattering, that I cannot find the funny because it’s all I can do to simply breathe.

Please forgive me if I cannot find the words right now. It might be awhile before I do.

If you could spare them, my family would be ever so grateful for your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you so very much.

    I’ve turned to your blog to help me see the lighter side of life on many occasions. I wish there was more I could do than send prayers and positive thoughts but I can at least do that.

    I am so sorry for what you are going through. You and your family are in my prayers. You’re blog is one I look at each day, especially when I need a laugh. I wish I could do as much for you as you do for me. I pray all the prayers going up for you will be so numerous God hears nothing else. *hugs*

    All day long I have been thinking of you. We have never met but I read your blog constantly. Please know that although we don’t know each other personally, as a mother and caretaker you are in my thoughts. I don’t know where you draw your strenth from but it seems as if you have an awesome support community here. Wish I were closer to bring you a casserole with lots of cheese.

    You have my prayers and big hugs. I wish I knew what was wrong so I could offer something more than this, but I’m sure you will explain in your own time.

    I do know this, at some point, you will find your funny. It may seem inappropriate at the time, but you process tragedy & angst through it. It’s how you deal. And it’s OK.

    Oh Andy… Our whole family is with you and praying.

    So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

    Hi Andy
    I’ve been reading your blog for over a year and I’ve also found it hysterically funny. This las post sent a shiver down my spine and I have been thinking of you all the time. It’s cold comfort – but whatever is going on, be comforted by the fact that at some point your pain will heal. Be it weeks, months or years.
    Sending love and prayers…

    I am praying for your family every day. I hope you are able to feel some of the weight of your situation being lifted off you by the prayers of those of us who are willing you the strength you need.

Very worried. creative funny lady (as you are very affectionately known in these parts cause I cant get my signifigant other of MANy years to remember my brother’s name, much less yours) you keep your chin up.

    Speechless. And from another “physical stranger” because you are not an “emotional stranger” to anyone who comes to your blog, I am so profoundly sorry for whatever you feel is broken. Sometimes, when it is broken, it can be healed. Whatever it is, I hope that is so.

    This just feels so sad. Prayers to you and your family. Your words speak of definite sadness. I hope that everything will be alright and that you will be able to learn how to smile again in God’s time.
