Best wishes for the new adventure ahead! So glad you have made it through this rough year feeling supported and loved. (((hugs)))


Oh Sandi, I wish I could give you a hug. First, because I'm glad you're going to be okay. Second, for sharing that you've had a tough year. We've had a couple of painful years and I'm not quite ready to talk about it but I'm getting closer.

I hope you'll continue to mend and we can meet up in Portland this May and be thankful together for all the little "icings on the cake" we've learned to love now more than ever.


So glad you posted and I read it. Stay strong and enjoy your little family and the move. As you said, life is short and uncertain.


This is a beautiful post, it brought me to tears. I had a year like that nearly ten years ago now and I am still here. Love is what keeps us going. Wishing you continued health...I am so happy you are well again x

I just want to send you a great big hug. You sound like you've been through a really rough time, but your post oozes hope and love which is obviously the 2 things you have used to draw your strength. I hope you are well on the mend as this world needs your beautiful work and the beautiful you that you are.

Be assured of my my prayers as you step forward into a future you weren't sure would be yours. I've been in that spot. I know those tender, tentative steps into tomorrow. Be well. You so bless us!


Gracious Sandi! Sounds like a heck of a year. So glad that you're on this side of it all. Will be thinking of you and looking forward to glimpses of your new homestead.

Know that you are not alone in your thoughts, plans, future and life itself. I usually say "life happens" and go with the flow as you don't have a choice anyway. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers for a future filled with happy memories. Enjoy them all and we will enjoy hearing all about them with you.


how courageous you have been. this post reminded me that we all have struggles, some larger than others. thanks for helping me put mine in perspective. it is so good to hear you are at the end of this road and at the beginning of the next. enjoy hawaii!!! i have been twice as both of my sons have been stationed there and it is fabulous!!!!!!! if you see one of those food vans on the side of the road. stop!! the most amazing food ever. enjoy this adventure we call life.


Good luck on your journey and may God Bless.


I'm sorry to read that you have been unwell and had such a difficult year, and thankfully you are on the other side of it now. Wishing you a wonderful life in your new home :-)

I'm sending the HUGEST of virtual hugs, Sandi!!! It takes an emense amount of courage to face any serious medical issue. Tears came to my eyes reading this, not only for your struggle, but also for the new future in front of your sweet family. I'm wishing you refreshing days, special moments between your intimate little family, and, above all, laugh-out-loud memories that only your circle shares in your new home!


Happy for you and your family! Enjoy the next chapter in your life and so glad things are better for you :O)


Such an emotional, beautiful and inspirational tribute to life. Oh Sandi, you are an amazing person- soft, delicate and strong as steel! How fortunate to be surrounded by such love and support. I wish you and yours a wonderful new journey. Thank you for sharing. And my gosh, a creek, a barn and a garden space? You'll have a lot of gorgeousness to paint at home too....can't wait to see.
