A Message to Bou

My dear friend Bou is seriously having a very rough time. In fact - as she shares, these past few weeks have been a hell I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

It breaks my heart to know she is going through this.

In her post she bares a bit of her soul. And she turns off her comments. That's mostly because people are often idiots and she really doesn't need any shit right now.

So - I just wanted to let her know: I love ya darlin. We're prayin' for you and those sweet, sweet boys of yours. You are NOT in this alone!!

You said it well Tammi... I totally agree with you. Hugs to Bou.

And we'll all comment over here to let Bou know we're all thinking of her and praying for her!

Though moms are the strongest humans on earth, sometimes they need some tender understanding too! Bou, I am thinking of you, praying for your kids and sending virtual hugs from this mom to you. You needn't handle it all inside. You have a vast network of family, friends, and strangers sending prayers and thoughts up for you. You be there for your boys, we'll be there for you!

Bou I am thinking about you and especially your boy.

I know how he feels for I have asthma too.

It's scary but you know when I have someone right there by my side while having an attack it makes it a little bit easier, knowing that someone is there for me. Makes it a little less scarier.

To answer the root of Bou's questions: Yes, I know what it's like. I've written pages on it.

Good Lord, Tammi. I thought I'd cry when I saw this.

I'm slowly trying to put all the pieces back together. I've steeled myself to what is next. All I can do is wait. I think this vacation at my folk's will be a big help. Really big.

And thank you all who left a message here. It means so much. And _Jon... I know you know what its like... and worse.

Tammi- Love ya, Girl. You're the best.

Count me in. There is simply no way not to instantly like Bou and, as such, suffer along with her in a difficult time.

Wow. Bou, as a mom of three, I have been around a bit, but damn, that's a full plate. I shed more than a few tears reading your post. In fact, I am still bawling. I wish I could take some of the burden for you. Seeing that I cannot, please know that, while I am not religious, I will absolutely say a prayer for you for answers and strength. You will be in my thoughts. Definitely.

I looked up "friend" in Webster's and it read... Tammi.
