sheer bliss!

Nessa * Rob * Diandra

Well... she is back! :)

Every now and then as Diandra was visiting her brother Rob, I would get little movie clips and photo's sent to me as it happened on my cel-phone. I felt like I was there... but, I wasn't. Diandra was a sweetie for thinking of her mom. I am so thankful for the progress technology has made!

I have been loving on Diandra and listening to her stories about her visit with her brother. She snagged a t-shirt (at my request) that her brother had just worn and put it in a bag. When I asked her to get me one, she understood I just needed to get a smell of him. It was one of the first things she gave me on her return. I know you mom's out there understand... Or I need a serious session with a therapist! LoL! Well seriously... come to think of it, that would probably do me some good and it would really be okay to get some help to get through this rough patch! I have felt like an emotional mess here lately. What can I say, it has been a tough year. Things are looking up though. I have been asking myself questions and really looking deep into why and what is having me feel this way. In doing this, it ables me to understand me more and not to just think that I am "reacting" to things.

On a good note ~ my baby is back and my other two lovelies will be home for Christmas! That is just around the corner.


  1. Oh Angela what an adorable picture of your darlings.

    I totally understand the need to smell Rob's clothes and feel his closeness.

    Yeah for Christmas Time.

    Love and Hugs
    Wanda Mom

  2. I understand the 'smell' thing 100%
    This is a lovely photo of the three of them. Christmas will be here before you know it.

  3. Whatever it takes to keep them with us is OK with me. (As if you needed that vote of support. lol)

    Great photo. Lovely people. You are indeed fortunate to have them in your life.

    As for therapy, hey, you just got a big dose of it. Rejoice. Photos and a worn t-shirt. You can ask for more and you will get it. But for now...

    take care. our best to you and Charlie.

  4. Yes!!! What good news!!!!~
    I know about kid smells! There is nothing like it!!! Balm for the soul.

  5. I know exactly how you feel. Every time I see one of mine, I drink it all in with every hug.

    That is a great picture! They are all beautiful. I can't wait to see them all at Christmas time.
    A lot to celebrate!

    Love you,


  6. I am so glad you had such a good time.

  8. Angela, you are so right. Isn't that one of things we miss when they grow out of babyhood, that baby smell of our babies! You are still my hero!
