A New Day

Cinny has decided to try this blogging thing again! We found a cute background for her. We found a cute, actually more appropriate name for her (and her family). We shall now try to encourage her to blog on!

She thinks she has no time to blog. We of the blogging world need to convince her otherwise of the value of a blog and how much we all like to blog stalk and we want to stalk her! So respond on and send any encouraging words.

  1. Way to go Cindy! Thanks to Libby we may get to see pictures and hear how the Gardners are doing. I check out Jason's all the time. It's my only way of staying in tough with the stage of life I'm in. Thanks for letting me blog stalk!
    Blog posts are a great way to tell about our life and that's the only way I figure people know what's going on with us. So welcome to blogging and I'll check in from time to time.

  2. I eagerly await advice on how to be one of the classiest ladies in the neighborhood.

  3. Hey and Hooray! Welcome seestor Cinny! I will dig in your garden a often as you will let me!
    Love you!

  4. yeah for gardners compost. perhaps there will be some great gardening tips? cooking tips? life tips?

    we love you cinny. you are fantastic. cant wait for more posts.

  5. Hey Cindy! Remember - "balance in all things" - even blogging can get out of control. Do what ya can and we'll love what you share!

  6. Dearest Cindy: I love you. I am ever so grateful to Libby ( as always) for setting up this blog idea to share your trail of struggles and victory with us. Tears are falling as I sit here at my computer thinking about you. I agree with Libby's sentiments: I know that Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother are there with you, and your family and friends, as you face this challenge and come out the victor, but--DAMN IT TO HELL ANYWAY!!!! This really sucks big time. I am glad we had the chance to visit and catch up recently when we were helping with the wedding shower at Libby's house. I have been praying for the Spirit to ease the pain for Jason and his wife as they go through the grieving process over the loss of their unborn child. If there is any little thing I can do in the way of taking Meg somewhere, or cleaning, or doing shopping or anything I am happy to help. I take solace in the fact that you will be surrounded physically and spiritually by all those whom you have so faithfully served all these years. You will get another quilt out of all this; tough way to earn one. All my love, Mary Silver

  7. Hey Cindy,

    What a wonderful group of supporters you have! I love you so much and want you to know that I am here for you in whatever capacity you need. I am in touch with Ali and love her to death, and Meg is always welcome with me and "scary Harry".

    This road seems to me to be a long one for you and your family. Gods ways are not our ways, and I am not one to know his plan for you, or me or any of our loved ones. I just follow His plan, and hopefully there will be joy in the journey. I know that Scarlett is watching over you, and I feel her friendship since my sealing to Gary. Thank you so much for bringing him into my life. It hasn't been an easy road, but I knew that going in. The Humphries and my children will always be cheering you on. My kids were devastated, as Gary and I were at the news, and just grateful that we have all the blessings of the gospel in our lives to use to help you.

    I have no idea what you are going through, and I just want you to know that I have loved you ever since we stood around the trampoline at Edgingtons and watched Ali and Lauren jump together. Now they are "jumping" into a whole new world, both of them in a very good place, with goals and desires to be wonderful women in God's kingdom.

    I am here for you, and even though I am gone sometimes, I will be right around the corner most days, working with Marcie Whipple and her family!

    You are a constant example of faith, hope, and charity to me!


  8. Cindy,

    I suppose I have been in somewhat of a stage of denial as Robyn has told me about your cancer. I keep waiting for her to tell me that it’s all a mistake. My memory of Robyn’s breast cancer is starting to return . . . we have a tendency to bury the bad things that happen to us. I know that I was totally overwhelmed with the situation.

    Based on how I felt and dealt with the ordeal I am totally amazed at the insight, understanding and spiritual maturity that you have shown. At the same time I don’t know why I should be. In some of our darkest hours with Robyn’s cancer you were there. I know that you spent numerous heart wrenching hours on the phone with her. You traveled half a day so that when she came out of surgery you could be there for her. If that was not enough . . . you remained to give her help and support for a week. I know that your support and presence made an invaluable difference.

    Yours and Reeds support for our family over the years leaves us in a precarious position. How do we give back to someone that has given us so much on so many occasions?

    I suppose our answer lies in the fact that we are so blessed in that Robyn is healthy and well. This experience and the many others that have tried our faith and given us patience allow us to step up and return that unseen gift of faith that our Father so dearly wants each of us to understand and use in our daily lives. I am not so sure who this test of faith is for . . . You seem to be in His grace.

    Never the less we will play our part valiantly knowing that one of His special daughters is in need.


    Mark and Robyn
