hi, im susies daurghter maddy
I had a good day and thank you for all the comments made.
I didn't go through that much stuff but friend issues.
Again thanks for the prayres and thouts!
love maddy

Susie here... I really just don't know how to thank y'all enough. Madison and I read each and every comment. We were both brought to tears by each and everyone of you. Thank you for sharing your stories with us. It did help and showed Madison that she is not alone. She came home from school yesterday all smiles. Prayers work! They all played together at recess! That's a big accomplishment for her because she was spending everyday in the library from fear of the playground. Thank you from the bottom of my heart~ ps.. As hard as I tried to comment all of you back, I ran out of time. Please know that I appreciate each and everyone of y'all~

  7. What a huge blessing for Maddy!! I have a 10 yo Maddy myself!! She's the one I homeschool.

    God is just so amazingly good isn't He?? I would never have imagined the loving community I've found in blogland!!

  10. I am so glad that she had a good day yesterday! I prayed for her and those "friends" this morning in my QT. I pray that she will continue to know that the Holy Spirit is with her and will be there to hold her hand when she is afraid and not with her adoring family. Keep us posted, and please give Maddy a hug from me today!

    Love ya,
    Susan

  15. YAY Maddy....it does sound almost exactly what Lexi was going through at the beginning of her 3rd grade year. In 4th grade everything has been pretty smooth. I am so glad that all has been worked out. It is good to have MANY good friends instead of just one best friend.

  16. When we're down, GOD is our best friend and HE comes thru for us, doesn't He????
    Loved Maddy's post, and I'm so glad to hear the struggle has eased up for now.

  17. Oh Maddy, I'm so glad to hear you had a good day!
    School days don't last forever...the best part of Life begins AFTER you graduate. Some girls don't realize that and try to squeeze everything in too soon and end up with regrets. Susie, you are such a good mama...your children are so blessed to have you!
    Warm regards,
    Wendy

  20. What an amazing daughter you have there Susie!!

  21. I missed yesterday's post, but I just wanted to say that my little sister was bullied when she was even younger than your darling daughter. It was a horrible experience for her. And my mother stepped in to help. That made all the difference. Your family is your priority. Please make no apologies and know that you did the right thing in putting your baby girl first. Blessings!

  22. Praise our God Who cares about everything in our lives from the major to the minor! Always remember what He has done for you, Maddy! He's always faithful!! Have a great weekend!

  23. I missed the last post, but I am so happy to hear things are improving for Maddy. For the life of me, I just do NOT understand the bully thing. What is wrong with someone when they think it is in any way acceptable to treat a person badly like that? It infuriates me. How inspiring that Maddy can rise above it all and see the bigger picture.

  24. Hi Suzie, I read your blog faithfully but have never commented. But this subject is so heartbreaking I wanted you to know we are praying. There is a fantastic book called "Odd Girl Out" by Rachel Simmons and well worth the read if you have girls (of any age). Your daughter is precious, she has your (family) support and God's strength to get through anything life will throw her way.

  25. Maddy is such a sweet heart. Any kid should be happy to have her as a friend. I'm glad she had a much better day.

  26. Glad she had a good day!! What a sweet girl.

  27. That is so awesome. I am happy to hear she had a great day, I will pray that they continue!

  28. You can let her know that she just brought me to tears just now, too! : )

    I'm SO glad she had a good day! So, so glad! When a child is hurting it's just so painful to watch, especially when you as a parent can't "fix" it. (But it looks like you did by standing in the gap for her!)

  29. So sorry to hear about the troubles your dear daughter is having at school. So glad to hear she had a good day.
    Your previous post was fantastic. They are the ones who need you most. We'll all still be around.

  30. Being a kid is such hard work these days! Glad to hear things are working out better.

  31. i didn't get a chance to catch up with your blog until today. it is so hard to be a kid in this world today. i teach kindergarten i can already see it starting. they are worried about name brands, who has seen what movies, music that is way to old for them, and they are much more aggressive than i remember kids being when i was young. i feel so for your daughter. i was the victim of school bullies when i was young. it took me until high school to learn that they are the problem and i'm ok with just being me. so glad that your daughter has such a wonderful, close family to depend on. i did too, and that helps so much. i will lift her up in my prayers. may you all have a relaxing and blessed weekend.

  32. Oh, Susie, I apologize - I've been so busy I haven't been by in a couple of days. I was trying to catch up tonight and have just read about little Maddy! Oh, I'm so terribly sorry! Kids can be so mean and it just upsets me so. I'm so glad she's had a better day today.

    You, Dear One, are exactly right - family has to come first! As much as I love Blogland and getting up my posts, sometimes I just have to stop and take care of others around me. Sometimes, even just myself!

    I know you're a great Mother and God does too and Praise Him - He does answer prayers. I'll keep y'all in mine!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :0

  33. I'm so happy to hear that today was better! I have always told my children to behave in a way that they know is right and treat others the way that they want to be treated. People will still be mean, but you have to be proud of who you are.
    You're obviously a wonderful momma and Maddy is truly a beautiful girl and I can tell she has a good heart. Stay sweet and never let the uglies get you down.

  34. My stunningly pretty, and very sweet soft hearted daughter was teased mercilessly in school for a few years. She became a woman of compassion and grace.

    Hang in there gals. God sees those tears and hears your prayers and wastes nothing.

  35. I drop by your blog often to read your cute little posts. Your last one brought tears to my eyes. I am a teacher and it just breaks my heart to see children go through that! I will be praying for her (and you...and those that are treating your daughter that way) and I know that God will make all things better! Maddy is in God's hands and there is no safer and more secure place. God bless! :)

  37. It was so sad to read what your little one was dealing with, I'm glad things have turned around for her. Puts things into perspective for certain.
    I'm not sure if I've commented before, but I love your blog and read it often.
    Have a lovely weekend with your family!

  39. Ahhhhh...wonderful post!! So glad that things are looking up! Lunch in the library can't be much fun. :( I will be praying that this will be the END to the bullying!!

    Susie, I received my signs yesterday afternoon!! :D They are so awesome!! Can't wait to put them up! I will have to decide on just the right spot. After I hang them, I will take pics and then post them to my blog! Thank you sooo much. You are so talented!! God bless.

  41. Hey Susie! I took a break from the blog world and just stopped by to get caught up! You've been busy:) Just wanted you to know we recently have had some third grade issues as well. It's absolutely heart breaking when your child is hurt. I feel your pain and hope things are definitely looking up for Maddy. Things are better here as well-thank goodness:)
