Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

...i bet there is no one out there who can tell me which direction this one is going

...unless of course you happen to know that "copper" is the traditional 22nd wedding anniversary gift we would have celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary together

...i would have gotten 22 red roses today in a beautiful vase with all the trimmings (and i would have complained all day about them-i am such a NO FLOWERS kinda person and he was such a YES FLOWERS kinda person-kids would get a kick out of it)

...we would have dinner reservations at my favorite italian restaurant-visaggios (reserved for AFTER the penn state game of course)

...i so would have BLOWN my diet today

...i am doing much better emotionally with the anniversary than i did with his birthday...perhaps because my major meltdown was just a couple of weeks ago but i still MISS HIM terribly.

on a side note my diet is still going very well. i just wanted to throw it out there how much i appreciate all of your love and support during this new phase of my life. ashley and kelsey have been great supporters here at home and all you bloggers out there are awesome. thanks for the stories and the inspirational quotes and the emails. they are a big help in keeping me focused.

it is like i have this big wagon with no sides on it and every time i start to fall out (or crawl out) i have someone on every side to catch me and sit me back up. so far no falls "off the wagon" and i have you all to thank. i have such an amazing support system.

thanks for checking in

A tough day for you Tammy. Tim would be so proud of how you have handled all of this. Two major days within such a short amount of time. Praying for you.

Comin' at you from several sides...
That's how it feels sometimes. But you're doing an amazing job---kind of a "Wonder Woman" deflecting the painful barbs with your wrist bands of faith, family & friends! (wait a minute---do you actually have three wrists? (*;*)

Anyway, whenever one gets past your rapid-fire response, and hits the target of your heart, remind yourself that oodles of us are praying for you---and for the girls.
None of us will ever forget Tim, but you're doing a good job of planting mini-visuals of Tim-isms.
Sending a virtual hug and enclosing love and prayers.
