Hi darlins....

Unfortunately, my sister's journey is a very difficult one. When we got to the hospital she didn't recognize us; didn't know her name; didn't know where she was.......then at one point she did recognize me and even sang for us. After we left the hospital my niece called to say they were bringing her for a cat scan as she fell into a deep sleep and the doctor's couldn't wake her up.....it appears she is having small seizures, which is not uncommon. Tomorrow at 2 pm they are placing the programmable internal drain...praying this works. The doctor said that if this doesn't work, there is one other possible procedure and if that doesn't work, we might have to accept this is how she will remain. No sugar coating with this doctor.....

Well DH is still looking but we are ok. God does provide somehow. My youngest son Andrew finally started school studying Massage Therapy and is very excited. My oldest Michael in Tallahassee has been invited to join "The Honor Society" don't really know what that is but they say its a prestiges club that only you can join if you have a 4.0 or higher GPA and they have to invite you. We are so proud of Michael, he used to be so bad in school, he has ADHD, and it looked like he was not getting anywhere...so after the military he really made an about face (no punt intended) with his life. I wish there was something new to tell you all but my life is a routine these days... and I am thankful I really don't want any surprises bad ones that is.
It is 11:45 pm DH is fast asleep and I will be getting ready to shut off, so have a great evening you wonderful friends and hope to see you all tomorrow. Sweet dreams.....

Oh I almost forgot posted 2 of my creations in Ebay for auction I have never auctioned anything before so wish me luck. My name in Ebay is Marticadesigns if you want to take a peek. Let me know if you think I over priced it?



Martica, thrilled to hear your sons are achieving their goals. My goodness....The Honor Society!!!!! Yikes... 4.0 GPA!!!!! That is exceptional....congrats!!!!!

Praying that Pedro finds employment!

Linny, Camille remains in my prayers. Especially at church last night. How is your pain level? Didn't you go to the other specialist? I am thinking about acupunture.
Martica, Such great news of your sons. Thank you for sharing your joyful praise reports with us. Pedro will find the right job. I continue to pray. Please keep us updated on the EBAY sales. If that album got $300, you should do wonderfully.
Katie, Darling keeping you and your family in my prayers. Today, just keep telling yourself that "Today is the day The Lord has made, let me rejoice and be glad in it." Then do something possitive.
Maggie, Hows is your four legged grandbaby doing? Are you keeping his spirits up? Two days left. I remember how Princess would act when I would leave for a week. She requires people she knows to talk to her, love on her and hand feed her. Last November when that did not happen for a day, she went out looking for me. How is your mom?
Glenda, Where are you????
Joy, it was so nice to see you stop in.
Deb, How are you feeling today? Everyone in my house has the yuk and at work too. When my sinus start to have problems and I am getting dizzy, I soak a cotton ball in peroxide and squeaze in my ear. I put a piece of cotton in my ear and lay down. It seems to help get it out of my ear. I usually take a good decongestant too.
Bon, You are going to have such a popular grandson with those cute little goodie boxes. I makes me so happy to see that you are enjoying those babies.
Jo, How is the prep for the move going?
Anna, Sorry that they are already wearing you out. You need a nice hot bubble bath in candle light.
Yvonne, Can't wait to hear about your adventure coming up.
Dawna, How is that training going? Don't wear yourself out.
Shana, Are you all rested after that large meal?
Susie, What are you up to these days besides getting skinny?
Bren, Please keep us updated on your test results. You have really been on my heart.
Oh my.... who have I forgot.....
Steph, Did Bon get you back in gear?
Elizabeth, Hope your day is going well?
You know, I have not seen Norma drop by in a while but saw her beautiful LOs.
I so miss Kat and her kareoke too.
Okay, well time to go back to work. I want you all to know that I am keeping you in my prayers.
I want to share a little of last nights lessen. It was on our EXPECTATIONS of God. Parents do not always give thier children everything this want just because they ask. It may not be what is best for them. As we go through the day today, lets be mindful of the blessing that God has given us. He may not have filled our wish list but He has given us so much. Troubles may come and go but our Lord never leaves us.
Have a blessed day.

Good Morning Sweet Friends,

Come on in and sit a spell, java is brewing! Crop day was fun and it was nice to get out of the house and visit with friends. Waiting on Ashley (DD3) this morning for our regular Thursday workout.

Linny...From where I sit Camile is a fighter and I'm sure she'll rebound with that new drain. I can't imagine how worried you must be Linny but there is hope my friend. Please know that she remains in my prayers for a full recovery!

Yvonne...You may want to consider cruising the convention from the comfort of a wheel chair rather than trying to walk the convention floor with your bad back. Have fun this weekend and please consider using the wheels! I don't want to see you experience any set-backs with your recovery.

Anna...My bff is a special ed teachers assistant and she's up to her eyeballs with student activity too! Meetings, meetings, and more meetings! I hope the kids get into the school year grove for you soon!

Martica...So happy to see you stop by!

Joy...Sounds like your painting work is finely going to come to an end! Can't wait to see the before and after pics! Did you take some to share?

For those of us that enjoy a morning blessing:

Father God we come before you this morning and just want to praise and thank you for a beautiful new day. We lift up our families and friends to you this morning Lord and ask that your special hand of protection would be with each of us today. Go before us, fill us with your Holy Spirit and cloak us with your protective armor. Allow us to be your vessels today Father that we may be a blessings to those that cross our paths today. Thank you for all that you are doing in each of our lives Father. Go before us today and be a lamp unto our feet. We ask these things in Jesus name, AMEN!

Have a wonderful day sweet friends! Blessings to all...

Dawna love the prayer and each and every one of you that take the time to post each day no matter how big or small. Sometimes my time here with you is all that I will have with other ladies for the day or more.

I was reading a devotion this morning and it was quite beautiful when I came upon this verse

Psalm 11:25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Wow, I can only imagine that God will refresh so many of you on here who have refreshed my spirit when it was lagging. When I have worries or struggles you pray with me even if I can't share the same as others might. You lift me up with your joyous praises and share with me your own struggles.

Thank you and rest assured that each and every one of you WILL BE refreshed by the Lord our God.

Blessings today,
B

Oh Joy, I do feel your pain! I know it feels like you'll never be happy again but you have to change your way of thinking about happiness. For so many years we depended on our husbands for our happiness and now that they're no longer with us we have to depend on ourselves for our future happiness!

You take it day to day and hope that the sadness and loss you're feeling starts to fade and you're able to think of him and your life together as a wonderful memory. Al has been gone for over a year and a half and I still struggle with the loss, the tears and the unfairness of it all. But, I also have days when I can say it was a good day and I'm happy. It helps that I have my children and grandchildren close by because they give me so much joy! I also have some close friends that I can call on when times get rough.

I think the old adage is true, that "time heals all wounds." You'll never forget and your feelings will always be there but some day thinking about your loss won't hurt as much.

The only real advice I can give you is don't shut yourself away from everyone. Let people into your life and enjoy the moments you share with others.

Linny, Camille continues to be in my thoughts and prayers as are you my dear! I pray that what they're doing this afternoon works for her and there are still positive avenues they can persue for now.

I have a dr appts this afternoon to find out when and if I need surgery for my prolapsed uterus. If I do I'm sure it's very minor and don't expect it to be anything serious. My insurance renewal just kicked in so my deductible starts all over so it made more sense to wait for it. otherwise, if I had done something last month or earlier I would have had to pay the deductible and then if something has to be done in the next year I'd be paying it again. It's crazy! lol

Lorna, Brady is doing okay but you can tell he's not himself. He's not active, lays on the couch or in the window most of the day. Since it's been raining all week I haven't been able to get him out for a walk but the sun finally came out today so I'll get him out for a run as soon as I get back from the dr. He cuddles with me at night on the bed so I know he's okay, just missing the kids. He must be wondering what happened to them and why they're not here. Two more days and he'll be his happy self again!

Afternoon ladies. Walls are no longer spinning, just my head now. I'd say that makes me just about normal again. Decided to take a decongestion instead of what the doctor handed out and its working so much bettr. I'm hoping by the end of the day, I'll be so much better.

Linnny, my heart goes out to you. I can't even imaging having to go through something like this with one of my sisters. I would be beside myself. I wish there was a way to make it all better.

And to each and every one of my friends here, I wish there was a way I could pick you all up and make the pain stop. Even if just for a little while, it would be nice to not have so many worries.

Congrats Dawna on being featured on Graphic 45. Its exciting to read when you ladies are featured on those websites and I always check them out.

Hi Lorna Lee, yes all rested from Thanksgiving. Just thawing out some pie dought to make pot pies with the remaining turkey.

Including everyone that is in need in my prayers and I check everyday to see the updates. Maggieanne how is your mom, have not seen a post but still praying for her too.

Just need to clean off my desk and start working on my swaps, I have plans and everything I need now I think LOL. Just need to start putting it all together. Also need to upload a TON of pictures of things I have been making and also write a TON of blog posts then preset them to post LOL. ah life do you ever slow down??

Finally got all my work caught up for Scouts, I am my Groups Registra and Scouts Canada changed systems over the summer. When they changed the system it screwed up my Acct. info and I had no access to register new voluneeters or new boys in the programs. Finally got it fixed yesterday and spent the morning imputting info so that my new voluneeters can register for their online training courses. UG normally not that busy with Scouts at this time of the year, tends to be in June when I get everyone registered for the new Scouting year.

It snowed last night and stayed, but the temp is going to be in the 70-80s tomorrow so it should all be gone again. Winter is coming :P

GOD bless and have a wonderful day ladies.
