I Felt Like This But Because of You I Now Feel Like This!

Yes ~ This was me just last week

But look at me now! See the me after the clouds parted. Oh' yeah, I guess the miracle is I turned into a grinning Cheshire Cat from a Sad Little Puppy!!!! (I don't know where I found these pictures but think they are so cute and thank you to someone).

Oh' My Goodness. Because of all your love and all your warmth and kindness I have so much to be grateful for today. I wish I could paint a different picture of what the last two weeks have been like but I'm not going to do that. It was what it was. It was not pretty. It was not fun. It was a struggle. But it was a struggle that I could have never gotten through had it not been for the people that loved me enough here in blogland. I'm not exaggerating.....it's true the words that you shared with me. The time you spent to visit me is truly and most certainly what saw me through. Thank you all so much. I wish I could send every single one of you a bouquet of spring flowers.

There you go not a huge Miracle Monday for most but quite a big one from me. The miracle itself besides changing from a dog to a cat, is the way The Lord has used each and everyone of you to help me. You've sent me messages of love and comfort. Suggestions and overall support to encourage me. I know so many of you have prayed for me and lifted me up to our Father. Thank you, Thank you!!! I know there have probably been prayers that I never knew about but our Father did and they did not go unheard. Thank you for those who thought of me but didn't say anything. I have been amazed!

And Kate you've were a lifeline. Thank you for checking in on me many times per day and seeing me through. Thank you immensely!!!

I love each of you and pray that you know just what you all have done for me. I know that it takes more than prayer. It takes searching for answers with Drs, my life, and a lot of hard work. The crisis time has passed for now. I know my battle of depression is not over but I'm hear today only because of the kindness you have given me. May God bless each of you over and over for your kindness and love.

Warmest of love and hugs to each of you......Tracy :)

  9. Tracy,
    So, so, so glad to hear it! And I think we are all grinning just like the cat too!

    Have a beautiful, sunny day!

  10. Hi Tracy,
    I just saw where you had left a comment on my blog and wanted to stop by. I am glad you are beginning to heal but I will continue to pray for you. Depression is an ugly thing and can definitely bring you down (I have seen it in multiple family members and have experienced it myself at times). With God and friends you will definitely make it through. I also strongly suggest meds, since alot of depression is brought on by hormone levels dropping, etc. God bless you and know that you are in my prayers.

  11. I'm glad you're feeling more positive and uplifted this week. I wish you would find a home church and become part of a church family. It is to reassuring to know there are people close by that you can go to. You are in my prayers. Stay close to the Son, He will never leave you alone. Pat.

  12. Just popped in to say, Have a lovely day!

  13. Tracy, I am so thrilled to see you smiling again!
    Isn't blogging wonderful? Aren't bloggers wonderful? I know firsthand that it's due to bloggers just like YOU that I was able to make it through a particularly difficult time. Thank you!

    Much love to you,

  14. Glad that you have that smile now....((hugs))) Susie~

  15. Tracy, We are all here for you! Love and well wishes! Elizabeth
