SHE IS HOME....

I have been a BIG crazy emotional mess. 
SO many feelings and I am trying to embrace and understand them. 
I have to say that I did not expect the extreme emotions that I have felt this week. I thought I would share a few photos... of course, many are not in order so just know, I may skip around.




Waiting at the airport for her to come home. We missed her so much! 


We were so excited. 

Devan and Ty are buddies. I love these two. PS- they had a birthday TODAY. Photos of this tomorrow... 


Zach is so happy she is home. They are VERY close and they have so many "inside" jokes. 


Made this sign with my new TC Alpha foiled gold (produced for JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts. *I did the entire banner and had lots for alphas left (TC Studio Gold)
WELCOME HOME MCKAY
 


Leann was adorable and brought Santa hats for EVERYONE to the airport. She wanted it to be fun. I love her family.  



It seems like we waited FOREVER for her to get off the airplane. 



Gentry made this sign and we decorated the house, trees and garage to welcome her home (even though her plane got in at 7:30 pm) Monday night. 



Yes, we made sure she would NOTICE us. 


This is Shane her "other" mother's son. They both are right off their missions. He got home on Thursday from Spain. This is her other brother and I love that EVERYONE came to support her coming home. To me, it's all about being together. I am so thankful that McKay has her dad and his family who love and support the girls so much.





I was just so excited and thankful. It was such a crazy tearful day. This week has been so hard. I will not dwell on it. I wish I was feeling "normal" but I don't.


This is McKay right as she got off the escalator. I hugged her so much. I felt so happy and kept thinking of Tyler. I knew he wanted to be there with us. I know he still was. I was a BIG emotional mama.  Oh how I ADORE this sweet girl.


The WELCOME HOME committee. 


The boys prior to her coming home, enjoyed video games... yes, I'm sure to "calm" their excitement. ha! 



Gentry made the most amazing signs. I sure loved the help and that everyone was EXCITED. 


I even sported reindeer ears. 


Devan and I hanging up yellow bows. Every one of our neighbors knew she was coming home.






Sorry, I know out of order. SO many more photos too. I just have been taking it moment by moment. I have been just dealing with emotions and emotions. I am so happy and thankful she is home. I just wish I felt more "me." I am trying hard to face, accept and go forward in my new journey. I have a newfound understanding, love and deep respect for others who are single parents, widowed or divorced and feel like life has changed and shifted directions for them. 

I am MOST thankful for my sweet McKay and her love, light and presence in our home. She is being very loving and kind to me.

I am so happy for you that McKay has arrived home safely, although I know it must be bittersweet because Tyler was not there to welcome her home. I am so very sorry you are going through all of this. Although I don't know you or Tyler personally (I feel like I do because I did meet you both at Scrapbook Oasis in one of your classes and I sat with Tyler at the table in the back during the class and did chat with him a bit.), I want you to know that I think of you often and check into your blog regularly to see how you are doing. You are an inspiration with your positive attitude and how you handled yourself throughout your journey with him and now your journey as you move through this difficult time. I wish you only the best and I hope that each day you will start to feel more and more like "you" again.

So happy to see you smile. Finding a new normal will take some time.

Thinking of your family daily. Grief is hard and all-encompassing so embrace the moments that make you smile. Be thankful for McKay being home for you to hug!! Wishing your family the very best as you move toward Christmas without Ty. My family is doing the same. Our first Christmas this year without my Mom - it's going to be tough but we are doing our best to find some joy. She would have wanted that.

I know you have to be happy your baby is home. Seeing you grab on like you did in the video reminds me of when my youngest daughter went away to Florida State. Ugh I said bye and then cried through 3 States! My oldest daughter lives away and I am always a puddle when I have to say bye. I raised my 3 oldest kids by myself and it's SO hard to let go and so precious when you can get your hands on them again. I never saw a time in my head that I would not be with my daughters when they were little. Now I know it's just as much my responsibility as it is theirs to make their path a little easier by not holding on so tightly so they can make their mark in this world. Don't get me wrong I still have a strong hold on my 14 year old son and am going through him growing up kicking and screaming in my head because I know what's coming and I've had to let go 3 times before. Teresa you and your family remain in my daily prayers as you have for the last year. Congratulations McKay on completing your mission :-) you're proving there ARE angels on earth!

She is a very special young lady who is so loved!

I am so happy for you that your baby is home! You must be so proud of her! Just remember to be kind and gentle with yourself. With prayers for you and your family.

Candy Williams said...

So glad she is home. You look good in the pictures. So good to see you smile. Lots of prayers for you and your family.

Wendy Sommers said...

So glad you were reunited with McKay. Your posts bring tears to my eyes every single time. It doesn't feel like it now but you are strong. So, so strong. Thank you for sharing your life with us. I pray for peace & strength for you often. And I am glad you have your sweet family to lean on. The love you have for each other shines through. Enjoy having your girl home. :)
