Last night my Hubs Mother died. At the same time my Hubs brothers wife's Dad died. This morning 26 students and personnel died in Connecticut. Every hour a person dies of Melanoma. Every day innocent people give in to the lords call to come home. I have a candle lit to help show the way to heaven for these innocent people.

I am so saddened with grief and will offer extra prayers tonight.

Colleen

Such a tragic loss for your family. (And so many others right now.) I know too well how hard it is to head into the holidays after a loss but have always tried to remember that those we love loved us back and want us to be happy. It will bring them great joy above if we can find something to smile about and still find a way to enjoy the holidays, even just a little. (((hugs))) There are so many to pray for today, so many hurting, my prayers will be with you and yours as well.

Sorry, sweets. :(

I know you and your family have been going through so much, and it is unusual for a family to lose 2 members on the same day.

My love and ((HUGS)) .

If someone is elderly, it is somehow more "expected" .... but still shocking and sad....(I know, when I lost my beloved Dad, I was numb for months) and when it is children involved... anyone's child....lost somehow through illness or taken in a horrific, senseless act, it seems so much more tragic somehow.

As a teacher, I find this abhorrent ---because honestly, a school is a sanctuary. A neutral place for learning and joy and has nothing to do with violence.

This young man was obviously mentally unstable and chose the wrong path to express his anger at his mother. I pray for his soul.

I have already thrown up once over this today...and I may just go do it again.. :(

Colleen, you always show so much courage, hon.... and I know you will remain strong, my friend.

My sympathy to you and your hubs,

xxoo IH

(((((Hugs))))) Colleen. I'll say a prayer for your family too. The passing of the children and staff at the school is very sad.

Colleen - so much loss in one day.

Please know that you and your family are in my prayers tonight and in the days ahead.

I must add your beautiful card was one very bright spot in a very tearfilled day. Thank you.

Big, big HUG!

    • I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc....now that has me stressed. Like I have a limited budget but if I get them on these sales I save money for the next few months buying in bulk on sale......but then the stress of borrowing money and doing so....which purchases to make, what saves me the most in the long run, will it last me til the next sale...balancing all this out with a limited budget when your bad with numbers is scary/frustrating. Damnest thing is I do not care for the specials on technology. vanity items, etc. I am just focusing on essentials and stuff I use or would use daily to improve my life and make savings in the long run. I think the only actual 2 items I am looking at is a charm for my mother for Christmas and a water filtration system for my kitchen. Other then that it is all food, supplements, spices, and medications lol.

      OH another funny thought due to lack of orders, I am opting to go help cook a community dinner at a church for over 450 people. I already brought/opted in to bring my own spices, starches, etc for the areas to keep it safe for my stations and will be helping with the turkeys and serving up a bunch of gluten free/corn free desserts so I will be in a safe element for my health risk. Got 16 turkeys, 1 food service pan of gluten free pear cobbler, 1 pan of pumpkin chocolate brownies gluten free, pumpkin pies to pull out and do starting in the morning.
    • http://www.newburnbakehouse.com/supermarket-products#wraps Starbuck's also had wrap sandwiches in London and this was the company they used.  Warburton's bread and wraps put everything in the US to shame.  The wraps are moist, delicious and do not SPLIT!  I could actually consider a move to the the UK just to have access to this bread.  I will say it again.....the UK has the BEST gluten-free bread I have ever had.  If I could afford shipping a cooler of the stuff to the US, I would.  Really miss my good bread.  And now I see they have crumpets........ Costa coffee is great...never had a problem with it.
    • Why wouldn't it be gluten-free?  whiskey is gluten-free. Wine is gluten-free.  
    • Have you been tested for a stomach ulcer?  That's what the pain sounds like to me.  You can also get pain in your stomach from too much gas.  Another possibility is GERD.
    • Well, you can always trial the gluten-free diet, but do it for at least six months.  Act exactly as if you had celiac disease.  Worry about cross contamination and learn to read labels.   My own hubby did this per the very poor advice from two medical doctors 16 years ago (and we had good insurance!).  The diet worked.  After a year of learning, he has faithfully remained gluten-free.  So, it can be done.  He will say that I have had it much easier with a firm diagnosis.  However, it is not always possible to get that diagnosis.  The bottom line is to protect your health!
