First of all - I know you're all wondering about Gina. She's been secluded with family so nobody has talked to her yet, but Sonya Johnstone contacted her church and if you click HERE you can read the latest update. Our hearts just go out to Gina and your family. You will read also on the post, that there's a HUGE collaboration going on to create a kit called 'GINA'S GARDEN' which will go on sale in the near future at SBB, with the proceeds going to Gina's family. We hope you'll pour out your love on her. If I feel like my heart is being ripped out... how much worse it must be for your family, G.

It was incredible to me how an instant changes everything. I've had people ask me how this feels, as a friend, and I can only describe it this way: you put yourself in your friend's shoes - emotionally and TRY to imagine what they must be feeling. Secondly, you wish you could take their pain, and you feel so darn helpless. You comb Gina's blog to want to share her journey with her, to labour in the pain with her. But your always on the outside. You can be here to support her, but you can't BE her - and you simply wait, and pray. And then... Sonya, bless her heart, turns the waiting into action and establishes a 'something we can all physically do' which is create a kit dedicated to G. I'm so proud to call you freind Sonya, your a ROCK!

In the meantime, will you please continure to pray for the family? This will be the ultimate testing of faith anyone could face - but I know, that I know, that I KNOW, that my Sister Gina will walk in God's love thru this and we will be waiting to encourage her when she comes thru.

On a happier note: Its Kristin Cronin-Barow's birthday today. Now Kristin is a pretty shy lil gal, but I'm sure it woud be totally acceptable to leave her a birthday comment on her blog, found here... while you visit beg her to put up more new content and pics there as she is a photographer extrordinaire...

I see her pain in her face... and hear it in her voice... but I know inside she is falling apart. I am glad you are there for Gina.. and there is such a great support group online for her. Hugs.. Joy... and thank you for all you do!!!! I come to your site and get much from you! and I dont mean the freebies... (((HUGS))) Joy
