I haven't blogged in a while. Just haven't felt like it I guess. Been looking for friends out there in the wide world of the web. For anyone who has read my blog(Lisa), my son's murder case has been given to someone else in the EPD. That is truely a prayer answered. I know God has his hand in this and I'm not just having false hopes. My hopes may be getting things solved a little quicker but hey, I have that right. God works on his time not mine. I have to keep reminding myself of that.
On a happier note. Everyone is doing well and is getting over being sick. Cooper and I were sick today for what seems like half the day. A little nausea, fever followed by vomiting. Then it's pretty much over. I pray it doesn't go past us. But you know Gary will feel like he's getting it. Then he'll milk it.
Thanks Lisa for the Isreal Houghton cd. I already ripped it into my laptop so I'll have it at work too. Your an awsome bff.
Until next time

I made it!!!

Okay,so I posted this message yesterday and now I can't find it.

This is my precious Bobby. My husband and I made it through the day on Tuesday. I had a few good cries and then rejoiced the rest of the day. It was a somber day.

On another note... My three boys have strep throat and the flu. They run all day long and as soon as the sun goes down they are misrable. Oh to be young.

Last night at church, a few friends of mine sang a song in memory of Bobby. They did a good job. Of course I cried, along with a few others. They sang a song by Brad Paisley and Dollie Parton, "When I get where I'm going". If you haven't heard it, you should. It's a powerful song for those who have lost someone.

The local news paper did an article on Bobby's murder(it's still unsolved). I want to lift up my husband for the way he handled himself during the interview. I am so proud of you.

Until next time... Probably later today!!!

I miss you BR549!!!!

Today is my first day to blog. Wow, what do I say. My title is "I miss you BR549". That's what I used to call my boy Bobby Rex Howell. He left us 1 year ago today. He was a true blessing to all who knew him. I really miss him. This is a hard time for my family but it's also a time to rejoice. He is with the Lord, a place so much better than here. For those who didn't know him, he was a great person. A young man so full of life, joy and love for the Lord. I met his dad when he was 9 years old. He taught me how to be a mom. I was blessed to have him in my life. Alot of you "step-moms"out there know what it's like, to be blessed to have been given wonderful children. His brother Dylan is an awsome kid as well. Gary and I had three more boys after we were married. Grant, who is 8. Cooper, who is 6 and Jay, who is 4. To be loved by so many young men...(HAHA).
I want to thank all those who have been here for us through these hard times. Our family, my bff, and all of our friends. Thank you for keeping us lifted up and praying for us.
To Cindy, his mom. I pray that God heals you and your broken heart. I hurt with you.
Until next time!!!!!!
