    Dear Richelle, I came across your story while doing a Google search on Officer Kent Mundell. I briefly knew Kent as a fellow member of the Puyallup Athletic Club and always enjoyed seeing him when he and I worked out at the same time. While I don't know all the details of your accident, I know you must be a good person as you were on your way to Officer Mundell's benefit. Life seems unjust at times and it often seems as though bad things happen to good people. I'm grateful you survived the accident and it sounds like you have a loving family and a lot of support. I'll continue to hold you in my prayers, that God may grant you and your family the strength to overcome this and that you may go on on to live a happy, healthy, productive life!

    Hi Richelle, I read about your amazing determination and wanted to let you know you are in our prayers.  Our son was seriously injured almost 5 years ago in Iraq and through love & determination we have seen God's work in his healing.  Continue to stay strong, never give up and believe in yourself.  Blessings, Denise & Evan www.caringbridge.org/visit/evanmettie

    Richelle, Hope your move wasn't too difficult and is a positive one.  You look adorable in your photo with the precious quilt draped across your lap.  I am praying for continued good spirits and new miracles to appear . . . for you to see with clarity that God is in the midst of this journey.  Love, Julie

    Good morning Richelle~

    Can you believe it?  This much snow at this time of year?  Easter is tomorrow…I think the Easter Bunny may have a challenge hiding his eggs!  :)

    Enjoy the beauty of the God’s pure white blanket.

    You are always in my thoughts with much love and prayers,
    Carol and James

    Hello family, near and far,
      What fun it has been  to spend time with you Richelle and get to know you even better. 
      Ever seen Hugh Jackman in Oklahoma?  I'll bring it up soon. It's fun.  You said you liked musical, so we will see.
      I heard a song in the movie Fireproof. Have you seen this movie? Sharon and I watched it tonight. Good.
      I couldn't catch all the words to the song, and of course I don't know who was singing, but  the gist of the song was I will worship when all I try is failing. I will worship when it seems you don't hear. I want to find that song. I thought of you when I heard it, though the movie is about marriage.
      Continue to worship Him and watch Him do great things in you and through you. Lift your voice and hands to our God, who gave His all for you and me.  Celebrate this time of year.
     Love you.

    Dear Richelle, Peg & John~

    Praise God for He continues to answer our prayers; every answered prayer is a victory!

    I was listening to a song this evening with the message…each day God will give us sufficient grace.

    2 Corinthians 12:9, 10
    And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
    Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    Our prayers are with you for the journey to Harborview tomorrow, as well as all the concerns Peg has mentioned.

    With much love, prayers and God’s grace.
    Carol and James

    Richelle has gotten off morphine now for over a week and now oxy is 2 days away...yeah! She is trying so hard to overcome the battle and we take it one day at a time.Please pray for her tomorrow as we head to Harborview to have Xrays and be cleared to remove the neck brace.They say it is also tough after wearing it so long,the muscles are weak and it causes much pain.
    Pray for her body to come fully alive and heal quickly as she seeks to honor the Lord in her attitude and keep her eyes on the Great Healer! She is a joy everyday but the sorrow over her loss is more than I feel my heart can endure at times.
    I know she WILL walk again and play again,but the unknown TIME it requires is most diffecult. All out love to those than have walked this weary road together and know...together we will rejoice in victory...in HIS time!

    Good morning,
      saige and I are at the computer, sort of, I am and she is all over the place. What a joy to see her and her sense of humor.
      Missed seeing you this weekend, though I had a wonderful time with my sister and her hubby.  sisters are the best things to have, brothers to for that matter.
      Happy birthday Boolander, good to see you and Jean  .   You are a blessing to Richelle, she loves you so.
      Looking forward to seeing you soon.  Finger foods are on the menu this week, so you can get more practice. You are getting good.
      How was church on sat.  
      Praying for continued healing and my thanks too , to all the wonderful people who are stepping up to help you during your growing time.   Praying for the discomfort too.   Jesus certainly understands how you hurt, and I can see that as we get closer to Easter and think about His sacrifice for us on the cross. Lord, we bring Richelle and family to you asking relief from the pain, without drugs. Thank you that we live in a time of pain meds, but free her from the need for them. Give strength and courage. Thank you for the spirit within this woman , the spirit to work towards walking again and being all you want her to be. In Jesus' holy name.
