Bye Bye Sweet Bumpkin........

Yesterday marked the day of some terrible news in our dear blogland....Lisa over at Bumpkin on a Swing lost her battle with cervical cancer. What was most shocking about it all was that she never once posted about it. She fought it without ever using her blog as a portal to vent...can you imagine? I do not know that I could remain that positive and strong not to just scream at the world how mad I was at my situation. Every week she continued to post her amazing posts filled with tons and tons of pictures....oh Bumpkin, you will be so missed....I pray for your Captain's strength to get through this. And for all of your friends and family, including the furry ones who you loved so dearly.......you leave an outstanding legacy behind. To read more please go to Lisa's blog or her sweet friend Julie at Brown Eyed Belle

  2. So sad. I'll visit her blog after I comment here.

    On my blog you asked what planner I use. I bought it at Wal-Mart for about $10. It is turquoise and is made by Mead. It has tabbed monthly calendars, weekly pages, yearly calendars, and pages to make notes!

  4. Hi Charlotte! Thanks for the sweet comment you left! It is funny b/c my sister is having a baby girl in November and "Charlotte" is in their top 3 for little girl names!

    Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. I'm sure Bumpkins family appreciates that you are spreading her memory to others. Best wishes! Holly
