One clutsy click of the mouse and I deleted that entire “cowboy” post that I wrote last night – and all 7 comments that I was about to read.
I could cry. I can’t get it back no matter how many clicks I make – I am going to TRY to re-write it and hope that some comments come straggling in. So sad – I just can’t believe it. I feel like a big moron!
I’m sorry you lost all your data my friend. (Doesn’t the word data sound very technically formal?) I’ve missed reading up on your blog, and I am so glad I am back again. Congrats on your Etsy endevour and the pics of your home through your Christmas eye and especially those of your petite mademoiselle doing the can can are gallery worthy!
I’m going to start saving up for one of your darling paintings!!!!
Holiday hugs to you!
Oh, what a heartbreaker…I can’t wait to read it! I love some cowboy stuff. We have a giant collection of John Wayne movies: politically incorrectm but we LOVE THEM!
Hope you got the copy I sent to you…message me if you didn’t and I’ll re-send it to you!
Ang. I know I haven’t commented lately but so often I feel as though I have nothing worthy to contribute on your blog :o) But as I read your blog today, it brings tears to my eyes. We are experiencing this same situation in our family with the loss of our brotherinlaw, Ryan. Dawn is left to be mother, father, teacher, protector, provider, (the list goes on and on) to 4 very small children. We had the privelage of spending time with her in the fall, and the loss is sooo great and so a part of their every breath, every decision, every tear shed by those children (3 of whom are boys). But I can stand here proud and tell you that DEAN HAS STEPPED IT UP! He is uncle and father to those children when he is with them. He hugs them, loves them, wrestles with them, and lovingly disciplines them when he is around. They cling to him more than any other relative. Dean has taken it upon himself to help Dawn buy a van, has taken care of all the details for her. He is helping her buy a house and make all of those decisions. He has studied the bible as to what it means to be the brother of widow and what he needs to do to take care of her. I pray that more men feel the call to step it up the way you have blogged about because there is a real need out there. Thank you for your words. I hope every one who reads your post shares it with every man in her life.
We miss you and think of you often as baby #3 is almost here. And Amelie is almost 2! Love you lots!
We are thankful to be able to provide a happy, stable home life for our divorced 40 year old daughter and our 15 year old grandson who has changed our quiet life with lots of laughs and 4 more years of high school football, basketball and baseball. Wish our other 2 grandsons lived closer to enjoy them also. Times have really changed when most of his classmates come from broken homes. Too sad. Peggy
