Does anyone garden?

Jacelynn said...

I do, not veggies or anything, just flowers and some strawberries and raspberries. :)

Three Amazing Kids said...

my 4 year old LOVES gardening. She is turning me into a gardner just by her passion for it.

Denise said...

I am disabled and can't anymore but I am fascinate by those hanging tomato gardens!!

Three Amazing Kids said...

Denise,

look for a community garden in your area. they have some around here for people with disabilities where volunteers will work with you and help you with your own plot.

Please pray for my friend's daughter. She is in the fight of her life against a blod clot and possibly deadly sepsis. Please consider going to her blog and leaving an encouraging comment.

Nina Bell said...

Three Amazing Kids,

I will pray for her. I looked at the site and it appears that this child and parent have been through so much pain.

They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Three Amazing Kids,
Your family and your friend's family are in my prayers. There is nothing more difficult that watching your child go through medical procedures. I have only had a small taste of it, and it makes me really admire your courage.

3Amazing, thanks for the idea but I live in a tiny rural community with nothing. I guess I could find some old farmer and sit on his porch while he works!

The McDonald family will be in my prayers.They make me realize my problems are minimal.

Saint said...

Thanks for posting the link 3AmazingKids. They are in my prayers.

We began a garden.

My lettuce is coming in. One looked almost ready to harvest and I took a taste and ewwwww.

Not sure if we have a crop error--but it looks pretty!

A Mom-ynous said...

Oh wow Three--I hope they can heal her. :(

For anyone interested in the CloyceDB post at ABC, I just reposted regarding Possum, the zoo trip,etc.
Hopefully it will remain up this time.

Denise,

my neighbor has fibromaylagia and is a retired teacher. one neighbor mows her grass, and my daughter and i bring her flowers that she plants. she thinks her garden is so neat. when the tomatoes and green beans come in, we plan on bringing her some. i taught her how to train her dog when she rescued a pup from a shelter. the point i am making is to absolutely talk to a farmer near you! i bet they would love to help you out. shit, if you lived near me, i would! it would be all sorts of fun

GLO said...

Hey--I just wanted to let the regulars know that I haven't been around much lately, and this will continue for the near future.

I miscarried on Friday afternoon. It was not really a surprise, as my last sonogram showed issues with the pregnancy.

I have been reading the boards, but I am so disinterested in the drama right now. I've decided to take a break from blogs for awhile.

Take care.

GLO

Nina Bell said...

Glo,

Really sorry to hear that. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Liza Beth said...

Glo, I am so sorry for your loss. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us updated either on this site, or you could email me (dearlizabeth@gmail.com).

3AK, thank you also for the link. I can't imagine going through something like that with your child. A friend of my family recently lost their almost 4 year old son to Neuroblastoma cancer (he had it for 2 years and the chemo and drugs stopped working, so in February he came home with Hospice then he passed away a few weeks ago). It is heartbreaking to think about how those situations happen, but in the end his family has blessed so many with their faith and hope.

Kikibee said...

Very sorry to hear that Glo. Take care.

Rachel107 said...

GLO--I am so sorry. If you ever want to talk, I've been through it too. Just lost twins in May. It's so much more common than I ever thought! Oddly enough, this "drama" has helped me kind of keep my mind off of all the pain. I don't know if that's ok or not, but it is what it is. Praying for you and your husband in your loss, I am so very very sorry.

Anya said...

Glo, I am so very sorry.

Please know you are in the thoughts and prayers of many.

And please do take care of yourself. Join in the drama (or not!) as you see fit.

Anya said...

Rachel and the others who have shared news of serious illness, you are in my thoughts and prayers as well.

Kind of puts what is truly important in perspective, doesn't it?

Three Amazing Kids said...

Glo,

I am so sorry for your loss.

merryway said...

Glo, I had been wondering how you were. I am so sorry. Please take care of yourself.

GLO said...

Thanks for your kind thoughts everyone. I really appreciate it.

I am trying to be very philosophical about the whole situation, but it is still very sad and disappointing.

I will be back...see you all later!

Rachel107 said...

I think this was a topic of discussion here when it first broke...

GLO--I am so sorry for your loss.

I am a miscarriage "survivor" (I hate that term, but it applies!)

It is very very painful emotionally! I miscarried the day after my wedding anniversary and at my anniversary dinner, I just knew. I could not shake the feeling.

I found the ovusoft forum to be an excellent community of support during my time of grief.

It was so reassuring to know that other women knew how I felt and would not in any way make small talk and treat it like it was no big deal.

But there was a silver lining to my very dark cloud as that miscarriage allowed my son to be in existence. I cannot imagine a world without him.

For me--his existence was a key component of my recovery. For other women--it might be something else. But the Ovusoft was a very reflective place to be during a very dark time for me.

:)

Saint said...

God bless, Glo. So sorry to hear of the loss. Get better; come back soon.
