Do you know just how much we all love your family? Big big hugs from TN. Tell your momma that I pray for her every single day and love her to pieces! She is one tough cookie isn't she?

Audrey, it's always special to hear from you. I hope the weekend is a great one for all of you. Give Emma a hug from the "bloggy" world and hugs to you too!


Hi Audrey- I don't know your family, but I check your mom's blog most nights! I am also a blogger and I was "hopping" around other blogs yesterday and there is your mom's photo at the top of her page asking for prayers ( I have your mom's photo on my homepage too). I also live in Colorado!

So many people from across the country are praying for you all! ms. laura

Dear Audrey,

For all these things and oh so much more, I will pray. For joy beyond imagining, I will pray. For popsicles and sprite and things delicious and satisfying, I will pray. For pain to ease, strength to come and sweet words from the lips of your mama, I will pray. For each day better than the one before, I will pray. For Joanne, and Toben, Audrey and Emma, Grandma's and Grandpa's, aunts, uncles and cousins, cherished friends and colleagues, for all who love Joanne, I will pray. For a thousand tomorrows, I will pray!

Good night sweet Audrey, because you asked...I will pray!

Thanks for the update, Audrey. I agree. All of that is amazing and wonderful. Know that you didn't mind being beat by your mom at Wii...that will just inspire you to play harder and get better at it and that will in turn inspire her. So thankful for all of the answers to prayer. Still praying and will not stop...Mary Lou in TN
