I love doorways

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle. - John Quincy Adams

For my Mother and my dear friend, RNP........yesterday brought shocking, face slapping, pause in your heartbeat kind of news. For the all of us, it was similar in its delivery, smack, but both bits of news will bring about different journeys.....but the one thing that will stay constant for you Mom and for you Rebecca is that we know that love, patience, perserverance and lots of faith and hope will make our news something we can live with, celebrate and come to understand.

I feel as if I have known you all my life Tara Marie. You are such a good friend--and your phone call this morning was infinitly helpful to me, I can't tell you how much I truly appreciated your kind words and reassurance.

Life happens without rhyme or reason, day in and day out, always moving forward--always reminding us of just how fragile it is.

I am here for your no matter what. Please feel free to call me anytime--I do mean anytime.

Please hug your mom for me.....

Sending many positive thoughts, prayers, and hugs your way as well.

Tara, hi, it is Beth Ann, I check in periodically to see how you are doing. I am very concerned about your Mom. Can you please let me know what is going on? (If you feel okay with that). My work e-mail is and my home e-mail is

By the way, Emma Sage is adorable as always, what a proud mommy you must be. Oh and on another note, I have a Nicholas Timothy at home now, 3 months old. He was born on June 7th. If you e-mail me I can send you some pictures.

I hope that everything is okay, send love to your Mom and Dad.
