God doesn't give you any more than you can handle

Really...I think He may be overestimating me.
I couldn't wait for 2009 to be over.
I thought 2010 could only get better.
I was so so wrong.
My dad died so suddenly.
Less than 48 hours from the time he was admitted to the hospital.
To when we said our last goodbye.
Then Baby Khang Khang keeps reminding me with his fierce kicks that he's coming to say his first "hello".
4 more weeks.
Life is not fair.
It just goes on.

One day Joyce, you'll look back to this time and find that it has given you strength in more ways than one. You're a tough cookie, smart and lovely with amazing friends and family surrounding you. I am so sure that your parents & family are proud of you, love you for the kind person you are and just want you to be happy. I do too! This is the hard moment but it does get better. Hang in there...

HI Sister,
I definitely feel worse today than I did last week. I think I was running on adrenaline last week but now it's so hard to face the reality. Just think how lucky we are to have each other & Susan and mom and all our other family and friends around us. Things are bad but could be worse. Try and give thanks for the good things that we still have. Love you,

Joyce, I'm so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing and my deepest condolences extend to all of you. I know your grief and despair is real and tremendous. The trials you have had to endure lately are so great. I really wanted you to have a terrific start to the new year, especially with the baby coming. I have no words of wisdom that will help you heal instantly. Time does that. You will never forget your father, but your sadness will turn to happy memories and a gratefulness in knowing such an extraordinary person. I do know the despair you are going through, and questioning God's actions. But, somehow, the days go by, life moves on and, as Chantal said, you garner strength from this. Just please stay healthy and take care of that little baby inside of you. He will help you through this process more than you can imagine.

Joyce, I'm so sorry for the loss of your father.

I don't know what to say other then the pain will lessen with time and when you think of him, it will be only happy memories.

Take care of yourself, the baby and Hudson and give your mom and the rest of the family a hug for me.
