I know I promised to blog more often…I will try to make up
for it with a little long and personal post.
A lot of you may be aware that in the last five years, I had 5 major
surgeries and kinda let myself go. I
also cracked my head open, broke my collar bone and my left thigh bone twice. No one wants to be near me in a lightning
storm!!! It has been hard on the Boggy
Bottom family as well as myself. My sons
and my Husband have dealt with a lot and supported and loved me all the way. I
am so very thankful for them. I don’t know what I would have done if they had
not shown such strength and love through it all…but I am not writing this so
ya’ll feel sorry for me…I want you to share in my joy!
A few months ago, a young man named Mark, who we knew very
well as one of Matthew’s best friends lost his family. I am proud to say he has accepted us as
family and we, him! He is now with us in
our home, his home, and doing very well in college while holding down a
part-time job. His interests are Zoology,
Falconry (how he met Matthew in the first place), motorcycles and he has many
more diverse interests I never knew. He recently turned 21. I always wanted
another son and now I have one! Please welcome our third Son, Mark.
I am especially thankful for his interest and determination
to see me on my feet again. He has
really made more difference in my rehabilitation from the two leg surgeries and
being able to walk again than any physical therapist I’ve ever had. Please excuse me if you don’t see and haven’t
seen as many posts of new dolls as I have been busy spending time with my
newest son and getting to know him better. He is truly a gift from heaven and a breath of
fresh air to this Mama!!!
