Thank you to those who have given Jamison their condolences. This has been a very difficult week for him. It clearly has meant a great deal to him to hear from you. I tell him about your comments and print your emails out to show him. Grandmothers have called to check in, and he really […]


Happy Memories and Hard Goodbyes

February 25, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 02/25/08 Goshen News article

My story today will not be funny. Life very often, as we all know, is not very funny. Today our second son must do a very hard thing. With the help of his father, he will bury a dear boyhood friend and the answer to many childhood prayers. His dog, Copper, was hit and killed […]


It’s tough, saying goodbye

February 23, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Please pray for Jamison. His special dog, Copper, was killed this morning. I’m not an animal lover, but I love my boy and it’s very hard to see him so sad. Not much laughing today, that’s for sure. Rhonda


Aaack! Just when I thought Florence Nightingale could retire…

February 21, 2008 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Egads! Another one bites the dust! The Chief himself is home sick. He hasn’t taken a sick day since I-don’t-know-when. This Florence Nightingale outfit I’ve been wearing for almost two weeks is getting really ratty. I was just ready to send it out for dry cleaning, but here we go again! As a minister once […]


I’m a happy mama!

February 20, 2008 Rhonda Schrock It's great to be a winner

Woo-hoo! As mentioned in last week’s article, wrestling matches are often hard for me to watch. Boy #2 missed the first one last week because of sickness, but yesterday he wrestled and won! I should apologize to the spectators around me, I know, because I’m pretty loud. It must be the repressed cheerleader in me. […]


Am I the only one?

February 18, 2008 Rhonda Schrock SURELY I'm not the only one

Can anyone else identify with grocery shopping trials and tribs when you have little monsters along? If any well-meaning readers write in about what a delight it is and what a lark and how well behaved THEIR kids are at Meijer or anywhere in the greater Michiana region, I will promptly hand off three very […]


Shopping with the Sin-dicate

February 18, 2008 Rhonda Schrock 02/18/08 Goshen News article

In the life of a mother, there are few things that can push her to consider infanticide, however briefly, more quickly than grocery shopping with her brood. The modern battlefield for her lies not in far-off desert sands, but in the aisles of the local supermarket. Over time I have personally come to believe that […]


Surviving – Days Three and Four

February 15, 2008 Rhonda Schrock The Survival Series

We’re on the home stretch! It’s Friday morning and the Chief will be home tonight. The front half of me is skidding in sideways, but the back half is limping over the finish line. The boys are getting better, but the baby is still iffy. Thank God – really! – he slept all night. On […]


Surviving – Day Two

February 13, 2008 Rhonda Schrock The Survival Series

We’re still floating here. Jamison was home again today with persistent fever and coughing. This is the fourth day now. After calls for juice, juice, juice, I finally ventured out Tuesday night and hit Meijer for some supplies, including juice, of course, with two different medicines for the infirm, and ice cream bars for us […]


Surviving – Day One

February 12, 2008 Rhonda Schrock The Survival Series

Well, we have Day One down. We started out frozen like popsicles, earning the boys a 2-hour delay. Jamison has been sick all weekend and has been lying around like so much cord wood, hacking and barking. The van had a gimpy tire, so I limped up to Glen’s Tire with Jordan behind me, praying […]
