gratitude

I cannot begin to convey to you how blessed I feel today after all of the wonderful support and compassion you all showed me yesterday. 

You are  what friendship is about.


and though I may not know you in person, I know you through this wonderful world of blogging. I hope you know that you are very close to my heart and I am filled with gratitude for your wonderful friendship.

I am taking baby steps. I had her phone cut off yesterday and I plan to go there after Thanksgiving. No, I will not go alone to her house.

I woke up this morning and the first thing I saw on my computer was this.


Tessa is 4 1/2 months old. How can I be sad, when I have that face to look at. I will be going to Atlanta at the same time I travel to North Carolina. Can't wait to hold that chubby, happy, giggling baby in my arms.

Taking the rest of today off to decorate for Christmas. 

With Love,
Laura

  2. What a cutie! Can't help but smile when you see that picture. Do they call her Tess? Just wondering because I have a granddaughter, Tess.
    Have a wonderful day.

  6. Such a lovely Tessa - yes, you're blessed!!
    Glad that you will face her, or attempt to face her with police or someone in uniform so that it's documented and you're safe.

  11. What a cute adorable sweetie. Can you just see her as a toddler? Oh she's going to be a heartbreaker.

    I know that everyone here wants only the best for you, and the best outcome, thankfully you are not going alone.
