About the Wordless Post!

I owe you an explanation for the previous post. I sat down at the computer trying my best to do a post about what had happened over the weekend. Tears were falling so hard that as far as I got with the post for you was a picture of my daughter Christi and her best friend Andrea. I thought I had saved the picture in draft but I guess that I was over whelmed with sadness I hit the wrong button and published the picture. Christi is on the left and Andrea behind on the right. I love this picture.

It had to of been very confusing for you because of me doing a wordless post. Now it seems I am doing a post without a picture because to tell you the truth I could not find a picture that comes close to my thoughts tonight.

You see Friday at midnight I received a phone call that my daughter Christi was taken to the the emergency room in Austin.

Even though it was four nights ago I still can't talk about it to anyone or even find the words to write about it without loosing control.

Christi is going to be okay but she needs a lot of help and prayers right now. She is with me for a few days and then I will take her back home and stay with her until it is okay to come home.

You know I always find comfort in your sweet comments and I am sorry to leave you without really giving you anything other than we need your prayers.

I hope to be able to find some kind of peace again in my life and get back on here and laugh with you. You know how I love a good laugh.

Just wanted to let you know why I have not been by your place to say hello but promise I will again soon.

I do know that God wants us to love each other and to forgive.

I love you and hopefully one day soon I can find words again because I already miss you
Love to you all
Maggie

Prayers are being lifted up for Christi and for you. May you be strengthened just knowing that we do indeed love you and are sending you our strength!

Please know that God's will is being done in Christi's life...I asked that, and I believe that it is so. Sometimes we do not understand the path God makes to being joy into our life; but he knows. Be strong, and believe that all will be okay. You both can weather this storm...and will see the silver lining afterwards.

Sending hugs too!

Maggie, I know as I have thought what can happen next. When it involves one of our children regardless of age, we hurt right along with them. You put your faith in God and he will see us through no matter what. My prayers and hugs are coming to you for a speedy recovery for Christi. I would give them in person if I was closer. Got to get to work. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

One of the most dreadful things we as parents fear is "the midnight phone call". My heart goes out to you and your daughter as well as my prayers.
Debbie

Jennifer Richardson said...

Oh those phone calls.
I send you both love and prayers
that unshakable comfort and peace
surround and keep you steady
as you walk through this
....and you WILL walk through this
and not be overcome by it
....and that you'll be able to feel
the massive LOVE that stretches out
and holds you dear and close with
wildly creative mercy and grace.
That you'll know in your deepest parts that nothing is impossible
and that there is HOPE in the most
difficult circumstances.
So much hope.
loving and lifting you,
Jennifer

I'm quite new to your blog, but I want to assure you that I am standing with you and praying with and for you as you are going through this crisis with your daughter. Nothing is worse than to hear that a child is in the hospital, no matter what the cause.

I am praying for you. I am praying for your daughter.

Prayers are coming your way from me Maggie. I do hope Christi gets completely better real soon. I know just how much she means to you. She is very fortunate to have you as her mom because you are a very strong lady and I know you will be able to impart a lot of your strength to her. You are just what she needs at this time, so of course we understand your need to take some time off from blogging to be there for her. Love you.

Cherrie said...

My prayers and thoughts are with you!

I come to your blog about a week after your family emergency. I do hope things are now better. My thoughts are with you both.

Jane Jeffress Thomas said...

Many prayers for you and your daughter. I do hope that no one hurt her and if they did, I hope the police get them and put them under the jail.

You have had so much on your plate and so I will say special prayers for you.

We will wait until you are able to share with us what has happened.

Julia mentioned on her blog that you and your family need prayers right now ~ you've got mine! This 'blog family' of ours can do amazing things for us ~ let us hold you up right ~ you and your daughter. Take good care of yourself, as well ~
A blog friend,

PEA said...

Dearest Maggie, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with Christi. I'm glad that you will be going to stay with her, she needs her mama right now. I've always believed that the power of prayer truly works so I'm praying for both of you. Love you! xoxo

NitWit1 said...

If being with you is healing I bet things turn around real soon. It is more miserable to need help when young than when we are older, when we expect distress.

Prayers for both of you, which I hope are answered very quickly.

Garden of Egan said...

Maggie. I don't know what to say except that you have my love and prayers.
Whatever it is I pray that you'll have the strength to be able to deal with it and help Christi with what she needs.
You have had so much this last few years and you need "a hall pass".

Bless you my sweet friend.
You are in my heart as well as so many others.
