What to say

Ok, so we understand that people don't know what to say to us because of Rylee so what a lot of people are doing is staying away from us or just stopped calling. Although we understand, know that this is probably when we need our friends the most. We don't need to talk about it all the time we just need distractions from all of it. I'm unable to talk to family about it and for the most part I don't want to have long drawn out conversations. We have lost a lot of people in our lives this year because of this and we don't want to lose more. It's better to say something then nothing. We know this is no fun for everyone else and that people don't really want to be bothered but just keep in mind what life is like for us. We love all of you and understand, it's just hard that the people you think will be there for you are the ones we hear from the least. On the 21st we will be back in St. Pete.

I'll admit, I'm not sure what to say sometimes. Usually I'll ask Leah what she's heard so you don't have to repeat everything a million times to people. My friend posted a similar blog about how isolated she feels sometimes when she's busy going to Dr. appts and all that stuff. But I'm always here to talk and think about your family often! I will say that it's great to see you all are still living life and making as many happy family memories as possible. We're sending lots of prayers Rylee's way! She's the strongest little girl I've ever met. Keep up the blogging so I know what's going on :)

Oh My Gawd! You totally summed up how I feel. By now sometimes I feel like people just don't know what to say so they stay away or that it's old news or just one more drama for the Greenawalts or taht we don't take good care of our kids so that's why they get sick, etc. etc. etc.

We should start a support group for each other. :)

I'm a bit of a daredevil

About Me

I'm a Mom of two wonderful children, Andrew(4) and Rylee(1). My husband and I are originally from NY and moved to FL 6 years ago. I love it here and won't move back but this is where I live my home will always be in NY. When I die someone better fly my ass back there to bury me. I love hanging outside with the kiddos, sports, working out and taking pictures.
