Tuesday's Tribute..It's Time To Give Back



So Jay has started this new Tuesday idea. I love the idea of focusing one someone else vs myself. Because the truth be known I am about over myself..and maybe some of you are over me too..lol

So...what am I to do when there is a list a mile long of people who have supported me in more ways then I can ever begin to explain?

This week I will play tribute to My special Friends at CCS. Check back cause there are so many tributes to give..we may be here for years to come. How is that for a positive attitude?




I got the biggest surprise earlier last week. Philip's school sent me these flowers. They were so pretty and such a BIG surprise. One thing I wanted to share is how much the card meant to me. I opened it and sat on my bed and cried. Philip has been at CCS for 13 years. Over the years I have gotten to know so many wonderful special teachers. When I opened the card I read messages from all the teachers and staff at CCS. Teachers starting with Philip from first grade signed this card. I always have to laugh..I knew most of them before marriage and babies. I guess that is why when some signed the card they had their maiden names on there too. LOL.
This card was such a special message to me. It is something I will keep forever. Thank You for the beautiful flowers...Tulips are my favorite and these were beautiful.
Also a special thank you to Miss Bailey. This may sound silly but she has the sweetest voice when she says Good Morning when I call school about Philip. She sign's Philip's guest book every time I update. And like yesterday I get out of the blue this sweet email asking how I was and telling me she is there if I need to talk to her. Plus she is a great message giver to Mrs Earls the principal. LOL. Love ya both.
I also wanted to thank Mrs Earls ( Philip's Principal) at CCS. First and most important for helping me help Philip with decisions about school. She has held my hand in his education for yeses now. She blessed me last year with a call telling me she was going to have someone come in while Philip was in the hospital to help me get the house ready for him to come home. I can not even begin to tell you what a blessing that was for our family. You will never know the weight that took off my shoulders. Thank you for caring and offering so much love and support for Philip and our family.

What a wonderful post, Amy! Sure sounds like you have many people in your life who are making your journey just a bit easier to travel. You've been blessed!

HI Amy,

Tulips are my favorite as well. Those were beautiful. What a lovely surprise to receive, tulips in the midst of winter are definitely a smile getter in this household. What a bigger blessing to have friends, but not just friends, long lifetime friends, that's a beautiful thing. You will never know how much strength and courage you have provided to others, the most important of those others, your children. They may not even realize it until years later, but they will. Keep your faith, and your head up, as you continue to fight the fight each day with the mind always knowing that our Dear Lord is with you...every step of the way. HUGS, Shari

that is such a lovely idea. i did a reading for a lady the other day who is feeling very stuck in her life, wants to make changes but doesnt know what to do... i remember hearing myself say (cause i don't usually remember what i sayto people when i read for them) the most positive way to create good energy for yourself is to give something away. and THANK you SO MUCH for those sandals!!!

What a wonderful "community" to be a part of. Tulips are my favorite too and seeing your flowers gave me a smile so the teachers and staff at Philip's school touched my heart too!
