Glad to be getting back into the Dolly World.

Post by Lainey » Thu Apr 05, 2018 4:32 pm

I have been really missing Doll Fan but we have been having so many things to deal with I just kind of put myself into a little place where I found comfort. Most of you know the story of our son Paul Junior with his car accident then his living in Hell for four years. He decided just before the 4 year post-accident time that he just couldn't take it any more and asked to have life support turned off. He passed away one day short of four years since his accident date. We learned last fall that Paul's younger brother had cancer and wasn't expected to live for long. We tried to get to NY to see him as often as we could to see him because it really cheered him up to see us. He passed away in February, and while we miss him so much, we know that he is now in a better place. While all this was happening, we discovered our Ragdoll cat, Noah, had cancer in his mouth and we medicated him until the doctor suggested Noah was beginning to have pain and we decided to help him cross that Rainbow Bridge. Molly still misses him and it's been about 2 months since we said good-bye to him. We will never forget all the support we got from all of our Doll Fan friends. It was so comforting for us to know there were so many people that really cared. I will never forget the loving support I had through it all.

So, I have decided the support I need now is to get back with my doll babies and all of your doll babies. Yesterday I decided to take the big step and add a new little one to my collection. She is going to arrive, according to the shipper, on Saturday. She is Journey sculpted by Laura Lee Eagles. I'm very excited about it. I have also decided to cut back a little on the number of dolls in my collection. I'm not sure who I will decide to find a new home for, but will be thinking about that. There are definitely several that I would not even consider selling so it may end being hard and I may decide I can't decide and will keep them all. Well, my little fingers are getting tired from all this typing so I will quit for now. I love you all and look forward to spending time on Doll Fan again. :heart: :grouphug: :elephant: :headspin:

So good to hear from you and know you are coming back. You have survived a lot of tragedy and heartbreak...but you have survived! It takes time but the times do get better and you adjust to your new life.

“As long as we can love each other, and remember the feeling of love we had, we can die without really ever really going away. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here…Death ends a life, not a relationship.”

Welcome Back, Ruth

Love is not defined by what the other can give you, but who they allow you to be.

It has been a very difficult time for you lately our dear friend. It’s always so comforting to know that we have SO many people here in OUR dolly community that we can count on to help offer that support when we really need it the most. :hug:

It’s wonderful to see you back here with us and we can’t wait to meet your new baby. :heart:

Thank you all for the loving comments. I know I'm glad to be back here among so many friends. It has been very hard on our whole family but there is so much love that we just knew we would be alright. The two girls are doing alright too, but Ross our youngest is being hit the hardest. He lives right near where his Uncle Jack lived and fished and hunted with his uncle and now he won't be able to any more. He's going to be alright as well, given some time. :grouphug: :heart:
