at a complete loss for words

I have had trouble posting for the last few days. I haven't known how to express how I'm feeling. I wish their was some way that my heartfelt gratitude could be transported through the internet or through space or SOMETHING to say 'thank you' to everyone of you who have read, commented, donated, contacted, assisted and cared for our family. The most recent expression of this kindness and generosity has come from my dear friend, Matt, his creeps, readers, and supporters. I hope you know how much you've touched our little family and that this assistance could not be more appreciated at this time. Matt, you are truly a wonder. A kind, generous and amazing person that I am so honoured to be able to call 'friend'. I only hope that there is some way that I can help you in the years to come following our losses.
Please know, all of you, that it will be paid forward...
Thank you. Sincerely. Thank you.

Yay! I have become an avid reader since finding the link to your blog from Matt's and I must say when he said he was sending some help to a single mom I was hoping it was you :) Like everyone else, i LOVE the new haircut...very cute and sassy.

Jackie-So, so glad that we were able to help in some small way. There are truly amazing people out there. It started as a small thing with the Creeps saying we wanted to help out, and I volunteered to collect the $$$. Well, soon there were people sending me emails saying that they wanted to help, too. People from all over that really wanted to show their love and support to you. Together with Matt's kindness and generosity, its great to see that complete strangers are able to help you out, even if in a small way. You and the kids deserve it!
I also love the haircut! It shows off your gorgeous face even more....

I am SO glad we could help in our small way! The Creeps love you and I think your hair ROCKS.

Kellie said...

Yay! I was so excited to see this and that Matt is paying it forward to you. I've been reading your blog since he linked it to his and when he said he was passing it on I was hoping it was you. I don't know of anyone who deserves it more!

Stacia said...

I was hoping it was you also. Much love from Arkanas!

Crash Course Widow said...

I'm so glad you were the recipient! Put the money to good use, whether it's simply to put in the rainy-day fund, to pay for overdue bills, or to do something nice for just you or the kids. You deserve it.

P.S.--I love the new 'do too!

Praying for you,

I'm so happy that you and Liv and Briar were the recipients of Matt's kind gesture. You most certainly deserve it! Love your new hair cut! I'll bet you miss being able to put it in a ponytail though ; )
