We are still here

Greetings to all! If anyone is still out there checking We are still here. I ask for prayers I have been in a very difficult spot in my grief. I wrote a blog yesterday but i believe it might come across the wrong way so i did not post it and I am really praying about how God wants to relay what is in my heart. If yall are still out there, its coming, please please please pray for Ali and me, its been rough. Blog coming soon.

Ali and Charlie- I have never met you and I actually haven't posted yet...but I've been following your blog for quite some time. Like so many others on here, I have learned so much from your family. One of the biggest things you have taught me is that we have to turn the hard stuff over to the Lord and He will show us the way. I am sure that is so much easier said that done! But, He is there and so are we- praying for you. I agree with a previous poster that you owe us absolutely nothing- just know that we are all keeping you in our thoughts and here to read- even when the thoughts aren't happy rosie thoughts. There is no right way to grieve...the best way is just to let yourself feel the way you feel. :-) Hang in there!

Still here. Not leaving, not when your daughter has helped me find so much in my life. So much love, so much of God in the day-to-day activities. I will always be praying for y'all. Please be comforted with that thought. Sending love, blessings, comfort, hugs, and so much more!

I just listened to a cd by Father John Corapi. Not sure if you have heard of him, but I will relay his message to you. His main focus was that God is Mercy and to NOT give up hope. He stressed praying to Mary for she relays all our messages to Jesus. I thought of you guys after listening to the cd tonight. I am still praying for you always. Hug Ali & the kids tight :)

I am praying for you and Ali -- grief is a long hard road, there are many ups and downs. The pain never goes away but it does get better. The one poster was right, you owe us nothing, post when you feel the time is right and we'll be waiting. God Bless.

Charlie & Ali,
I am still praying for you daily and will not stop. My prayer for you is that you feel God's arms around you. I pray for healing. I ask God to help you both go to Him and let Him guide you. I pray that you both cling to each other and to our Father. God bless you and your family. I love you!

I have been praying hard because I figured the reason we hadn't heard anything was you were struggling! I will keep the prayers coming!

Know that your blog was missed... but don't feel pressured to share unless you are ready!!

Charlie and Ali, We are holding you so close in prayer. Have Baby Cate's prayer card as a bookmark in one of my daily reading books, and all through RISE and ever since RISE, I have repeated over and over, "Baby Cate, pray for us". Today I'll add, "Baby Cate, pray for them - your Mom, Dad, Ella and Dude". Our hearts are with you, pal .....
