Hi friends!! Just spent the most amazing two weeks with my precious daughter and granddaughter!!! They came to visit!! It was actually the first time Mechele had been here since she drove straight through from Washington State after Hurricane Katrina dumped 4 1/2 feet of water in our home! I will never forget her driving up with tanks of gasoline on top of her car! I almost had a heart attack! She even came with diapers to give out to people! So, one can only imagine how sweet it was to have her "home" again! We did nothing but hang out in the pool, watch movies and cuddle with Audrey! Colin got to come for a short visit but not nearly long enough! My family came to visit and there were lots of hugs and tears!! And of course there were lots of crawfish and shrimp and good ole New Orleans food!! My heart has not been this full in so many years. Every morning I got my coffee and went outside and looked to the heavens and said, "THANK YOU!" As you all know, Mechele is still unable to communicate by internet, etc. But she asked me to PLEASE let everyone know how very much your love and support means to her! We are still waiting for the State of Alaska to put closesure on this nightmare! You can only imagine the stress she is still under not knowing what they are going to do! Just wanted to update everyone and thank you all for your continuing encouragement, prayers and undying support!!! Big open party at my home when this is finally over!! Much gratitude and many hugs to each and every one of you!!!! By the way, please feel free to sign up on Mechele's FaceBook page...we actually have more activity there then on this site!!
