Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

Amber~ A TRUE Friend

I come again tonight to post through tears. Today my dear friend Amber left this earth to go home to be with Our Lord. I am SHOCKED and SADDENED beyond belief. I do not know all the details just yet but so far have been told she had a massive heart attack. To our knowledge she did not have heart problems so this was such a shock. Amber was a TRUE friend!! The name Amber means precious jewel and that was what Amber was to me! I have some very dear sweet memories of Amber. Amber was the kind of friend that you did necessarily get to see all the time but would make time to come when you call!!! Even when things might have been hard for her she was still there for me! Amber blessed my soul to the core when you came to our benefit concert for Noah and sang for me at my request! And sing she did! Like an angel and several songs. I will NEVER forget that day! Amber knew how I loved to hear her sing and play the piano which she also did :) And Oh my could this woman make a yummy cake! She had already offered to make Noah's 2nd birthday cake. Amber taught Celeste to play piano! I had plans to have her teach my sweet Noah! She was a talented and generous person and a dear dear TRUE friend! :)

Please be in prayer for all of Amber's children and the rest of her family and friends as the shock begins to wear off and the pain of loss increases. Most especially please pray for her sweet baby Erin! Amber took Erin from birth and I was told a couple weeks before that the Court date to finalize the adoption was November 3rd. This sweet baby has no clue where her mama is tonight and there is no way anyone can explain that to her. :(

I last saw Amber at my baby shower for Noah and I am ever so thankful she took time in her busy life to come to bless me and Noah. Here are some pictures of MY FRIEND AMBER taken that night.

Thank you for reading this mini tribute to my dear friend. I can't express the shock and sadness I am feeling nor what Amber meant to me or how I feel about this. I can be so thankful I saw her not too long ago and that I KNOW where she is and that is some comfort. Sadness enfolds me this night. I am so blessed by the joy of my NOAH! He is so sweet when he sees me sad and is such a love bug. I am blessed!

Tonight We send our Kisses in the wind to Amber.

Oh Tami, I'm soooo sorry for you loss of today AND yesterday. You must be feeling so drained. I will definitely pray for Amber's family and friends. I will also Praise God that she is home with her Heavenly Father, celebrating and rejoicing! How wonderful to know that she is there, with Him. Through all the grief of the family, at least they know where she is and that they WILL see her again, praise God!

Please be extra kind to yourself for a few days, hmm?

Tami, I am saddened by your loss and I can't imagine what you're going through right now. Praying for you, and for Amber's family. A little extra prayer for baby Erin who must miss her Mommy's arms desperately. May all be comforted knowing she is with our Heavenly Father.

Tami,

Wow... I can't imagine what grief you must be feeling right now. I'm so sorry for the loss of your good friend. She sounds like she was a really special woman who will be missed sorely. I'm praying for her little girl, as well as for your endurance. You've had a tough week.

Hi friend. Thank you so much for letting me know about Amber. I didn't know her like you did, but I did know her. Death does indeed come as a thief. Only God knows why he took her at such a time,and He will certainly provide for her family! Praying for all of you during this time of loss.

Oh Tami,
I'm so sorry...I just can't believe that happened. (I remember her from your video and I remember thinking how pretty she is) There aren't words to make this easier for you right now, but I am truly saddened for you. I will keep you and her family and small children in my thoughts...

Kisses in the Wind

KISSES IN THE WIND
I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.


May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.


When Love Takes You In!
