Surrounded By Angels

These past 6 weeks have been full of angels for me. Angels from Fargo flew (drove) here last Wednesday and stayed 25 hours and power cleaned my whole house, including vacuuming 3 levels, cleaning 4 bathrooms, (one in which takes a whole hour), washed all our clothes, including all towels, washcloths and sheets, swept out the garage, brought groceries, watched my sick kids, (while I went to my ultra-sound), made them breakfast, raked my flower beds....Oh, yes, sewed my favorite pregnancy shirt that I'd ripped taking off a inside itchy tag (while I was wearing it)!!
Brought me beautiful flowers!

Sarah raking my flower gardens! I have never been told to "sit down" that many times in one day in my whole life! I am not a "sit down" kind of person.
Back in March, Tracy came with her beautiful children and celebrated the Feast of the Annunciation with us, her children made me beautiful cards and she made beautiful gifts for me!
Paula (Harvest the Home) also came a day and cleaned, made lunch and helped with my littles while I schooled, oh, and even cleaned my toilet...whether she wanted to do that or not, the toilet overflowed and she had to just found out she went wonder I have not heard from her on my google reader!) Christine! also came and cleaned, made lunch and watched my littles (she also has taken me to the doctor twice)!
My mother in law has come countless times and cooked, cleaned, done laundry and played with the kiddos, as has my mother. friends have brought me shopping, taken me to the doctor, brought meals, neighbors have brought meals. I've received care packages, gift cards, gifts of money, countless prayers and cards, Masses....the list is endless and mind boggling. Which is why my thank you's are waiting in a pile with my cards for me to attack and start writing!
I'm sure I'm forgetting things here, but I mostly want to say THANK YOU!
To all who have been an Angel to me these past 6 weeks!
Love and blessings to you all!!


  1. How wonderful, Jamie! Make sure you get rest when you can!

  2. I only wish I could have helped out more. You know the reason I had to make my blog private. It makes me so angry. I'll send you an invite, not that I've posted much.

  3. Wish I could have been near to help, too!

    Now, stay safe!

  4. Wow! You certainly are surrounded by angels! How blessed you are to have such wonderful women to support and care for you, especially when you needed them most. Blessings as you continue to recover. I think of you often and send prayers your way!

  5. We had a great time helping, Jamie. I only wish we had had more time to get more done! The time went SO fast and the kids had a blast playing together.
    PS You really should have told me I looked that terrible before you took the pictures! :)

  6. You are one blessed gal. Everyone loves you because of who you are! You are a sweety!!!! Just let me know if you want anymore help. I am not good at all about knowing what someone needs or not.

    Glad to see you up and walking and the kiddos are getting better. AMEN!

  7. What a lovely way to honor all the women who have helped you!

  8. awww......wish i coulda been there too! you are very deserving of all that help and how blessed you were to get it!
    hope you are feeling better! =)
    maybe you should learn to knit while you sort of "have" to sit!
