Hi!   I'm a mother of 3 who is LDS.   I draw great inspiration from my sisters of faith, be they Christian, Muslim, and Jewish.    It is great to work together and let our maker work miracles in our lives.   I feel so blessed and inspired from the stories of faith walking in God's light.

May God continue to bless and heal us, watch over and protect our loved ones, and help us be a beacon of hope.

MammaRay, as we discussed earlier, it is indeed a sad time for our country. Sad to think that some are becoming numb to such awful news. I'm sure your dear son will grow to understand the severity of such tragedy, and will continue to pray for those suffering. What a sweet boy.


I've been blessed to travel around and visit several ladies here, from Ohio. I will also be traveling to Indiana shortly. There is a strong bond among the women here. I'm glad for my testimony of the gospel when I see others who are struggling with disbelief.

Good morning everyone. Happy belated birthday MammaRay. I hope it was wonderful for you! I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week. My goodness that snuck up fast. Then Christmas only four weeks behind that. Anyone have big holiday plans?

Enjoy the second half of the week Sisters.

That's right--I should've posted about MammaRay's birthday on Nov. 8th!

Love,

It's OK to feel mad and not understand what's making you mad at others. Your family and friends will always love you and do their best to help you through the rotten stuff going on. Sending my best hug your way and keeping you close in thought and prayer. Love you more!!!

Well said Joanne. I'm sorry for these challenges MammaRay. I hope you are staying warm.

It is bitter cold here and will be for a while. No significant snow where I am, just temperatures in the 20's that feel like single digits. Ward Christmas party is this Saturday. I feel like they always go a bit overboard, but it will be enjoyable.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hello ladies. I've posted on a couple threads, with the help of my DH. Here I am back at home base. This is where it started. This is where I first came terrified at 29 years old, and I was brought in and surrounded by love and support. I'm grateful for everyone posting here now, but this thread was hopping five years ago. Remember Joanne? The specific group I remember was Joanne, raro, firstcall, TallM, and susan3. Of course there were others who popped in, but the six of us had some good times on here. Susie thank you for coming on and showing me so much concern and support. I'm praying everyone had a wonderful holiday. Make your New Year's special without the unrealistic resolutions. Hold your loved ones close to you. They make everything worth it. Take care of yourselves ladies.

With love, MammaRay

MammaRay I don't know that you'll see this. I responded on the other thread. I have read back at some of the early pages here and I see what you mean. What a fun group. What a blessing that you all had each other during that time. You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

So saddened by the news of our sweet prophet, though I know he is rejoicing again with his wife. The gospel will continue to flourish with the loving guidance of our new leader. Grateful for this knowledge.

Letting all of you know that our sweet MammaRay passed away this morning. Oh, how I will miss her! She's free of her mortal pain and with loved ones beyond the veil, but I feel her presence and know that she'll be watching over her family and friends. Here are some pics from her most recent visit to my home in California in May. She was in a lot of pain, but seemed to enjoy herself, especially at the beach and at See's Candy :) I'm including a pic of her first visit, several years ago, with her son. He's such a wonderful little boy! I'm glad Rachel's parents and many siblings live close and will provide support for her DH and DS. Love to all!

This news saddens me, but I've been waiting for it. Glad she enjoyed her visit out there and that you two had that time.

Prayers for her family. I'm glad she allowed me to get to know her a bit.

Thanks, Zills. I felt awkward, posting in the stage IV forum with no responses, so deleted it and I'm putting this in the Insomnia and Prayers for MammaRay threads. Your prayers were felt and appreciated by Rachel :)

Susie--I know Rachel enjoyed you dropping by her home. Thanks for taking the time to see her when she couldn't get around much anymore. I wish I could've visited her there, too. Someday I'll get to Ohio and visit the Kirtland Temple where she wanted to take me.

Take good care of your family and friends, everyone, and know that life continues on, forever, and allows us to reunite with loved ones like Ray :)

The mods were alerted by a member re the pics I posted of MammaRay so I decided to remove them. So sorry. I know she posted pics of her son, but it's been quite a while since she posted any pics of herself. Anyway, I don't want to upset anyone on the boards--rather keep the notice of her passing as kind and reverent as possible.

Blessings of peace and comfort to all who knew and loved our Ray.

Good morning, dear Sisters....Today is Rachel's graveside service in Ohio. My heart is heavy, but I've found comfort in rereading a poem Rachel wrote and sent me as a bookmark several years ago. I keep it in my scriptures and cherish it. I believe the message in the poem is how she felt about all of us in her life as she traveled through trials, but appreciating the outstretched hands of friends. I hope this brings you some comfort today. Love to all!

"Road Trip"

Within each journey lies unique terrain,

Paths of joy or mountains of pain.

Though sun ascends to shepherd through our way,

Darkness finds us at the end of the day.

Faith may waiver; succomb by weight of fear,

Doubts preventing roads from being clear.

Atop the mountain is a broader scope,

Giving views of peacfulness and vistas of hope.

Courage is found when with an alied soul

Companioning the trip with their role.

When feelings of discouragement persist,

And confidence easy to resist--

We find the strength within an outstretched hand,

An Oasis in a lonely land.

Joanne let me know about the kind comments made here. Thank you Joanne for informing everyone. I appreciate all of the friendship and support Ray received here over the past five years. Unfortunately I don't have much to say, besides that we are doing ok. I believe very strongly that Ray is still with us, watching over us. Everyone keep track of your keys, she always said she would move them on me. ☺️ She was indeed our Wonder Woman. I will check the responses here from time to time. Everyone take care.

Hello to those who are still checking in on this thread. It seems to have hit a very somber pause as we think of and miss our MammaRay. I believe she was greeted by Raro and firstcall--our other members who enjoyed posting here and passed on before. I lost another friend the end of December--a college roommate--who was a red-haired version of Ray. Both are cherished friends and I'm hoping they've met by now, too. Rachel left me a voice message a month before she passed away, and she mentioned how it's never "finished"--our time together and plans for tomorrow's adventures. I know she's right. All of us are on a brief hold until we're together again, continuing our friendships and associating together.

I know your heart is heavy, just like mine, dear Susie. You're in my prayers. I'm hoping we can begin to gather here again as Rachel would want with news to share and encouraging words for each other. I'll start with saying that I'm grateful for the trials in my life that bring me to my knees, drawing closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. His influence and answers to pleading prayers strengthens me and helps me step outside my troubles and reach out to others in need. I believe the common conception that service does more for the giver than the receiver. Rachel was a pro at this--serving others. We all want to be like you, dear MammaRay, and we'll do our best to make you proud of us! Hug
Love to all! --Joanne

Thank you Joanne. All of that was beautifully put. I really didn't know Rachel very well. Even the brief time that we visited, I could tell she was uncomfortable having someone there just because of how she was feeling and looking physically. But yes, the tragedy of it all is weighing heavily on my heart. Glad to have the knowledge of the Gospel and the knowledge of reunited friendships. I love the idea that she is now united with friends from this thread and your personal friend as well. I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your college friend. This has been a hard month for you. Thanks for mentioning service. This is something that I need to work on more, and perhaps keeping MammaRay in mind will help me do that.

Have a good week.

Hope all had a sweet and lovely Valentine's Day,l and that you're staying warm and cozy through this winter, Susie!

've been caring for my mom who broke her arm while visiting in Utah. She's 82 and very frail right now after her surgery. My dad is 87 and does his best to care for her, but he needs help. I spend the night and stay till early afternoon everyday, then drive home, 30 minutes, to teach piano, then go back again. It's been hard, especially not sleeping through the night since my mom needs assistance, but it's been a wonderful blessing to be with my mom and serve her as she has served me and so many others for so many years. Oh, how I love my parents! Cherish your family, my sisters, and love them with all your heart Heart
