I know I am a little late and today it took everything in me to have a Beautiful
day. Today was also my 16th Wedding Anniversary. Mista had to work but he surprised me with a strawberry shortcake, some flowers and a hook rug I have been wanting for sometime.
I am still hurt and upset over my son and trying to keep my head up for the show I am doing on Tuesday. I am truly drained, My son is doing as best he can right now his face is still swollen and with bruises they look worst as they start getting better I just have to do all I can to have him mentally and spiritually right now he doesn't want anyone to see him and I feel his pain. Thank you all again for your prayers and kind words.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day
Peace and Blessings
Cheryl...Snatch JOY!


  1. OH, Dear Cheryl! I've just read your post about your precious son! My heart is breaking for you! I'm so very sorry. A situation happened to my daughter while she was in her senior year at high school, she wasn't exactly beaten up, but what happened to her is the worst nightmare for a mother.
    I wish I had words to console you and tell you it will be alright. I know you're a strong Christian and can say just hang on to your faith in the Almighty. During this time with my daughter, I cried out to God, saying "Why!?" I would hold her till she cried herself to sleep. I cried until I didn't think I could cry anymore. I didn't feel God's presence, but He was there. It took a long while, but we all got through it. I will be holding you and your son and your family up in prayer. Again, Cheryl, I'm so sorry and am sending a big hug and lots of love to you.

  2. Cherly I hope you have a nice anniversary. I know it has to be very hard at this time to be a little happy. The cake looks yummy and the rug i love it. My kitchen is done in roosters. I'm glad that you are not going to let this go. Those horrible boys that did that to your son and the other boy should be punished for what they have done. And i know you are so proud of your son, he sounds like an excellent boy. It's going to be hard but you just have to take it one day at at a time and let God be there for you. I pray the pain is easing some for your son. Just remember you can always come here to talk or stop by my blog. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I pray that your son will be strong again. And the boys will be caught.

    Blessings and hugs

  3. Cheryl,
    I came here to wish you a Happy Valentine's Day and I'm so sad to hear of your son. You must be so proud of him though, the fact that he was the person helping the victim. What a good heart he has to put himself in danger to help another. I'm so sorry this has happened. Please give him a hug and know that my thoughts are with you. I hope he heals quickly and the boys are found who did this to him. I think it is terrible that the police won't do more to help you.

  4. Evening, Cheryl! Just dropping in to tell you I'm still praying for your son and your family!
    Try to get some good rest, Dear One.

  5. Happy Anniversary, Cheryl! I am still praying for your son's recovery...hope he's feeling better!
