Happy......... Sad

Woke up so happy this morning, still pumped up after the Divas show last night and my beautiful baby girls banquet. I sat down at my computer, flipped on the TV and all I could feel was complete sadness.

Feeling so sad for the families that are still trying to come to grips with the fact that they will never get to see their sweet babies do any of these wonderful things.  As a mother, I don't know how you go on.  Having your sweet child taken from you at that age is unfathomable.  At any age would be devastating, but Elementary school age is beyond anything I will EVER be able to imagine.
So...... as I sit here typing this post, tears are streaming down my face.  Tears of joy that I can hold my own children close and tears of utter sadness for these families and the loss of these precious children.

As for now,  I will be praying so hard that some how, some way that these families will get though this terrible season of their lives and once again be able to feel joy and peace of mind.  As for now, everyone close to them will just have to be strong and LOVE them through this horrific time. Love is truly a powerful thing..........  

Please God, be with these families, their friends, and our nation while we all mourn the terrible loss of these beautiful children.........

Peace and Blessings

Proud Mamma

WOW!  What a night!
I cannot tell you what an amazing night Ive had!  As a mother, it doesn't get much better!  So proud of both of my beautiful girls. Mileys Divas performance was truly one of the most incredible moments of my life.  To see her out on that stage doing what she loves makes me so happy.  People can say what they want, but no one can deny that she is a true ENTERTAINER.  It was so good to see her so happy and having so much fun.  To see her smile like she did tonight made me the happiest girl in the world.
I know her little guardian angel Lila is one proud puppy tonight............

I just want to take a second to say Thank You to everyone who had a part in tonights performance. Miley is so lucky to have such an amazing TEAM surrounding her!   Jamal, Draico, all of her incredible dancers, Jamie, Jaco,  Rickey Minor and his incredible band etc etc. Simone, Denika, Vij, Jessie.....  Not to mention everyone on our management team!  It takes so many people to make a performance like this happen!
I really do believe we have the most AMAZING TEAM around!  You guys are family and we love you so much!

Ok..... now onto my sweet Noie..........
As soon as Miley came off stage I ran to my car and drove like a maniac to get to Noahs end of year banquet.  Noah worked so hard this year and it really paid off.  Noah truly does give 120% every single day of the year to her horses and being the best rider she can be!  I am so proud of her accomplishments  and the way she has grown as a person and a rider in just 2 short years.  Her trainers at Far West Farms are nothing short of INCREDIBLE.  Their dedication to all of their riders is amazing.  Not only is Noah a great rider,  she has learned so much more from being a part of the Far West Family!  All the friends that we have made over the past few years, are some of the BEST friends we have ever had or ever will have.  I love how all these girls love and support one another.  Its so special.
Noah really cleaned up tonight she was awarded....

CHAMPION Large Pony Hunters
CHAMPION Pony Equitation

Yep.......... Im one proud Mamma!
I will try and come down off my cloud tomorrow!  lol

Night everyone!

Its been awhile

Hey guys,  sorry it's been awhile since my last post. I feel like my life has been going so fast lately that I haven't even had a minute to sit down to update everyone.  Hope you guys are healthy and happy and getting ready for holidays.  This horrific tragedy we've been watching over the past few days has really made it hard to get into the Holiday spirit.  It does make me want to hold my family close and never take for granted the time I have with them.  Life is so so precious.  I thank God for every single moment I get to spend with them.  I am beyond blessed with such an amazing family. 

Speaking of my family,  Billy Ray is still in NY singing his little heart out as Billy Flynn in the Broadway show Chicago.  He tells me this has been the most challenging and rewarding thing he has done in a long time.  As he started his stint on Broadway, and moved into his apartment in the city, Sandy hit hard and left behind lot's of destruction.  Being there during that time, really let him experience NY as a community and how they pull together when times get tough and always come out stronger than ever!   

Billy Rays last day as Billy Flynn is December 23rd and I'm sure it will be bittersweet for him.  Glad to come home, but sad to say goodbye to Billy Flynn and all the amazing friends he made during his time in NYC!

As for the rest of the crew, Noah just ended her horse show season and her end of year banquet is tomorrow night.  It's going to be a great night for her!  She worked hard this year and it paid off BIG TIME!  I will take lots of pics so I can be a proud Mamma and post them Monday!

Braison, has been busy rehearsing with his band and finishing up his portfolio.  He has another photo shoot to finish before his issue of Troix comes out!

Brandi drove cross country with her dog and everything she owns and moved back to Tennessee!  It was hard letting her go, but its something she's wanted to do for a while now!  Im sure she will be back and forth a ton because Frank and Derol is based here in La.  They will be playing along the west coast again very soon!  

As for Miley, its been a really tough week.  As you all know her beloved baby girl Lila passed away.  Everyone has been so precious and so supportive of her and I love you all so much for that.  Miley loved Lila more than anyone can imagine.  I know some people were saying its JUST a dog, but to Miley she was so much more.  In Miley's life, as you can imagine, its hard to let many people into your tight circle of family and friends.  Anytime, that Miley is sad or having a hard day, Lila was her angel.  The one that always loved her unconditionally no matter what was going on in her life at that time. She would always just curl up in bed with Lila for a few hours and then everything would always feel better!  She always made me feel better too.  I gave her the nickname Lila Sue Pumpernickel!  lol  I have no idea where that come from, but it stuck!
The way that Lila was taken from her was beyond terrible.  Sometimes things happen that we just cant understand.  Miley still isn't ready to talk about it, but I thought you guys should know what happened.  
For some unknown reason,  Ziggy........ grabbed Lila.  Not really sure if she was playing or what?  She grabbed her in just the wrong spot and Lila didn't survive.............  Please understand that Miley isn't ready to talk about this and we dont think Ziggy is a mean dog........  We took Ziggy to SPOT dog rescue and they found her a new home with no other pets or children just in case it wasn't a fluke.  So not only did Miley lose Lila,  she feels she lost Ziggy as well.  

Anyway, Im really happy that VH1s Divas is tomorrow because being in rehearsals for the last few days has really been a huge blessing.  It was a way to distract herself for a little while each day. 
I know you guys are going to love her DIVAs performance.... I must say,  IT KICKS TOTAL BUTT!!!!!!!!!!   Make sure and tune in tomorrow night!

xoxoxxoxo   Blessings,  Tish
PS  thanks to all of you who continually support my baby girl thru the good times and the hard time!
