I just want to start by saying Thank you for sharing your gift with us. It is a gift and we take it freely. You have to first take care of you. Your greif does not have a time line and you can not rush your healing.
There may be those who are all about "ME" and what "I" want but they don't matter. You have to do what is right for your well being. So when you find that you are able to get back to these kids, you will and we will be here ready to read.
Prayers of peace are with you and I am truely sorry for mom having to go. I will hug mine twice as hard on Tuesday when I go to see her just for you.

So sorry for you loss, honestly no one will be able to say anything to help. You will always miss your Mom but it's also okay to think of all the happy times and laugh about it in between. Cancer took my Mom in 99 at the age of only 60 - and I still miss her every single day.

I understand how you're feeling.
I lost my husband to brain cancer and w/in 6 months, my mother to breast cancer. I'm also bipolar, on a cocktail of meds. Believe it ot not these types of stories have given me some peace of mind.
I wish you well and will keep you in my thoughts.

I lost my dad to cancer last year and less than 12 hours later my brother in law was killed in a motorcycle accident. It still hurts soo much and there is times when I want to crawl in a hole and hide. Hang in there it never gets "better" but it does slowly start to hurt a little less and days start to look bright again. I'm sorry for your loss and I wish you and your family the best. I am a loyal reader of your stories and I will still be here when you come back.

I lost my father to colon cancer and it truly is a bitch. I'm so sorry you are going through this. If you ever want to vent or cry I would be willing. I'm sure you have others in your life but know there is another unbiased and unattached ear that understands. Sending my thoughts to you. - Lauren (I am a huge fan of yours by the way. You are very talented)

Finally! !!!! Loved them being together for the 1st time under the stars. Perfect. I am sad that I now have to wait for an update. I have really enjoy going from chapter to chapter reading. Hope you update soon. While I wait on your update maybe I can get some of my Christmas decorations up. I have been pre-occupied with reading the story. I wanted to read instead of decorating. Lol

I have been meaning to tell you that I like his nickname for her. Glad they are moving forward. Slowly but at least it is forward. Can't wait to see what the kids think about Edward coming over and having dinner with them.

Loving this story. So glad I started reading it. But. I love reading your work. I need to stop here and go read your new update on Caught in the Flames. You really write awesome.
Glad Bella is opening up to Edward. Glad she decided to continue to see her therapist.

You're right about the outdoor lovemaking, it was hot and lovely at the same time! They had a great time away from everything, but I figured it would lead to wanting more time together! Great idea for Edward going to Phoenix, even if there will be drama! It won't be surprising if one of Jacob's sisters hates that Bella has found someone new. That conversation in Bella's head, in the woods, with Jake was so touching, and so realistic! Deep breaths to help you relax, and we'll see you next time!

Ah such a nice romantic getaway. I agree that Bella needed a vacation. When she walked into woods, I was almost expecting her to say she needed a human moment but then I realized its not that story. lol I can imagine her emotions are tough for her sometimes to get a handle on. It shows how far she has come that she is starting to think of Edward being there permently.
Of course what would a family gathering be without some drama, especially when new boyfriend meets old in laws.

I have tears running down my face as I read this story! Gah! You have brought out the deepest of emotions in your writing, which is not an easy feat. I love this story already! I also want to send my greatest admiration for your friend, Pam, and you for going through tough times and rising to the top. I don't mean that you don't still feel the pain of your situations, I just mean that you are fighting each day for "your" normalcy! Bless you both and anyone else who's shared their survival story.

Thank you again, this is the best story of love, caring, just plain old being there for someone you care about, not a lot of anything but people living life the best they can, while death as just past or is right around the corner. I look forward to every word you will write to complete this story. Update soon, take care.

Wow, this chapter was simply amazing, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Edward is SO wonderful with Bella and the kids... First she cares for him which he really needs and then he's just slipping into the father role for Johnny... they are the perfect family! I love it how John and Grace accept him and how he always points out that he does not want to replace their father!
Then the borthday present... wow, they really did a good piece of work here! And obviously, Bella may be ready to get it all with Edward soon, too! Why else would there ba a "wedding"-like page in the scrapbook?
Of course it's important that Charlie gives his blessings, but he's a wise man and knows when his daughter is happy :)
I agree that the lemony goodness would be too much here, the emotional part was very important for all of them and the cherry on the ice cream may be next :)
Read you soon!!

I do declare Bella's the saddest thing ever. Cancer is the great you can either," live with me are die," conquest. I thank god every day, it has been a vistor for years in my family, it is not welcome, but you hang on.

life happens and as sad as i am about esme i am also happy that edward has gained a family and that what ever happens he wont have to go through it alone. i do hope that esme does get to at least see him get married and have a child of his own with bella. this was a very good chapter.

Boy, I can see why you had to cut this chapter off where you did, it's a biggy! The encounter with John and Jason was heartbreaking, but it was a great bonding moment for John and Edward. The album/scrapbook was such a touching gift, especially those last two blank pages! I can tell I'm going to cry when Esme finally passes on, just as her family will!
