Damn you Oprah

Yes. I watch Oprah. Not all the time, but more so since she stopped that whole 'Remembering your Spirit' crap. All men aside (although I'm pretty sure they all stopped reading as soon as they saw the word Oprah anyways...), you gotta admit that Oprah has an incredible ability to make you cry. Or laugh. Or roll your eyes. Or make you mad- whether it's at her or a story she's telling.

Her last shows are on this week. And I was just watching an episode on the DVR and man, she is screwing with me today! I'm laughing and then crying in the next second. That's kind of how I've been all day today. Up and down, and up and down.

Started the morning with a trip to the doctor to find out I'm growing a few new cysts- we're going to give them a couple of a months to go away or it'll be another surgery... Good news at therapy from Max's speech therapist- he met ALL of his goals and is moving on to bigger and better goals... Trip to the cemetery. Blooming tulips and lots of tears. How has it been seven months since we watched our little girl slip away before our very eyes. Seven months ago, we were in the middle of a war against something we couldn't even see. Seven months ago, we were losing...Talked to the hospital today, and they are ready to start accepting some donations... More cookbook orders. $1700 worth so far. I hope it makes Ellie do her excited dance... Discovered that 7Up and pineapple juice is pretty tasty... I busted in tears from laughing so hard at a Facebook link posted by a friend (so funny)... two seconds later Rascal Flatts was playing this for Oprah:

I Won't Let Go Lyrics

It's like a storm
That cuts a path
It's breaks your will
It feels like that

You think your lost
But your not lost on your own
Your not alone

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
If you can't cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I wont let go

It hurts my heart
To see you cry
I know it's dark
This part of life
Oh it finds us all
And we're too small
To stop the rain
Oh but when it rains

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
And you can't cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight

And I wont let you fall
Don't be afraid to fall
I'm right here to catch you
I wont let you down
It wont get you down
Your gonna make it
Yea I know you can make it

Cause I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
And you can't cope
And I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I wont let go
Oh I'm gonna hold you
And I wont let go
Wont let you go
No I wont


And that did it. More tears. Damn you Oprah!

Up and down. All over the place.

Yep, it sounds like that kind of day. Sending big hugs your way...and then checking out that song. Amazing lyrics...but a true tearjerker indeed.

I have that CD and love that song. The lyrics are so meaningful. I have been watching Oprah too. Definitly a tear jerker.
Thinking of you Tiffany. You are such a dear person. Thinking of Ms. Ellie too. ((HUGS))

Thinking of you today Tiffany. I do have to share with you something that happened yesterday. I was outside with the kids and a ladybug landed on Will's nose. He went cross-eyed and then started laughing. I immediately thought of your Ellie. I think maybe she was playing. Hang in there today....prayers are with you.
