I haven’t felt that inspired lately. Things around here are edgy or something. See what I mean very little inspiration.

I’m sitting at the dining room table working on the summer Disney scrapbook. I’ve lost the C in escape, I suppose it did just that. Poor lost C. I lost the dot on an i but it still seems fine.

To fill you in on things that have sucked it out of me:

My aunt is in the hospital, surgery to remove a large amount of her intestine.
My son broke his hip.
My dad is doing well but still has me on edge.
Someone in my family has Crohn’s and isn’t looking too well.
I’m having my knee worked on in February.
My friend's cancer isn't gone.
That divorce thing
I’ve lost my temper with my boss twice this last week. He’s a man so he keeps saying stupid stuff like “I know you’re a bit stressed.” And “What’s this all about?” MEN!!!!!
I had a two day migraine.

I spent some time in the car today with God crying and talking. I talked a lot about me and how He should be helping me. He let me know that he was. Yes it is about me right now because it’s my blog and I write about me and when I need to lean I need to lean. So He told me that He was right next to me with His shoulder for crying and His arms for holding. And after all, my aunt came through surgery. My attorney has made me laugh and is a Christian. My son had the best surgeon around and is making me laugh every day. My daddy is taking care of us and doing a great job and he is still with us. They found Crohn’s before it was too bad. My surgeon is a good one and a Christian. He promised to pray for my son. I’m having my knee fixed after dealing with the pain. Insurance company willing. ;-}

I may have lost a friend but I still have lots of friends who really love me.

Still I don’t want to get up too early Saturday morning. I think I’ve earned it and I did complete four pages of the scrapbook.


After eight please.

I think I need to find my Bible and keep talking to God.

Winter you have arrived

Just Chill'n tonight.

It's cold and sleeting/snowing/freezing rain stuff.

I made it to and from work with ease today.

I drive rather well in this stuff. It's about respecting each others space and going just the right speed.

Just like life. ;-}

The boy is doing well and doing a bit more on his own.

Miss Littles is herself as always so life is good tonight.

If only dinner would show up on its own then all would be grand at the homestead.

Update on my kid

My son has two pins in him and is resting at home. I have been making calls and trying to arrange PT and homebound for his schoolwork, I threatened to make a call to the person who runs the school district. The poor nice lady on the line asked me about paperwork. Paperwork! I could get the person in charge of that department to call me back. The paperwork is now to be faxed to the surgeon, I’m told he is the best. I pray that the blood flow stayed strong.

He is resting at home now we moved the bed to the family room so that he would have to sleep in my bed, it’s a bit tall and so the he could hang out with us during the day. He is in good spirits and makes me laugh a lot.

I will admit that I hit the wall today. My boss was being a jerk and when he said a real stupid thing to me I went off. I know that I shouldn’t have but I did. He looked at me and said I know you’re under a bit of stress because you normally would have talked that way to me. I raised my voice again and said a bit of stress are you kidding me! We are cool now but I shed a few tears on the way home.

The boy shows me a lot of strength every day. We have some pretty funny moments around here.

Please pray that the blood flow is strong and he only faces having the pins out.
God has him in His hands.

Thank you to those who have been lifting us up to Him.

Please pray

Please pray for my son he fell and broke his hip.
Doctor number 1 missed it and sent him to another doctor the next day.
He missed the 8 hour window and now we won't know if the ball will make it.
It will take months to know.

Because Chic asked

He slipped on his pants while being chased by his sister. No he doesn’t wear his pants low like some of the kids. He was in those lounge kind of pants. His hip met the ceramic tile. The first doctor, a well know one in this area for sports medicine, Olympic medicine at that, didn’t do x-rays instead he sent him to a specialist. The appointment was the next day. That doctor took on look at him and sent him to x-ray then called 911.

My minister did the coolest thing last Sunday.

I had to take a fresh battery to him before he hit the pulpit/stage, after running around looking for him, being told to go in the wrong direction thanks to Greg. (What was I thinking listening to him?) thank God for tall men to point me in the right direction, way to hide in plain sight, I gave him the battery. He seemed shaky but it was almost go time and I had just given him a task right before. He sat in the pew then looked up at us. We try to focus on the players at hand in case they have a change of plans and need us to do something. The sermon is in the computer and notes are at hand it’s almost go time and he is staring at us. My cohort mumbles about the fact that he is looking at us. I whisper something back about it.

He came up to the booth with a slip of paper and two lines of notes on it. The scriptures are loaded I make sure the picture is changed because they weren’t right for the mood and they were too light.

He preached from the heart. I needed to hear it and I know the many others did. The sermon was real and personal. It touched me. It’s sort of sad that not everyone knows that it wasn’t planned.

My minister plans to the last detail on his sermons. He’s easy to follow when you are doing slides as long as you are awake. I’m still waiting for my Starbucks.

I love it when God leads

What a wonderful gift for the new year from God

I woke to hear Canadian geese on the pond or were they at the window. What a great sound at six am. I don’t have a photograph of the first sunrise of 2009 but I can assure you it was a pretty one. It painted the sky in orange and turquoise. I wished for a Starbucks as I drove to the church to pick up my son. He brought in his new year with friends.
I spent the night at my dad’s house with a friend and family. We played games all night. I have to note that I had been up since four in the morning. I still say that a cutter worm exists.

We enjoyed a nice dinner of cabbage, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. I eat them more to honor my ancestors. But if I have good luck and money I won’t argue. It’s one of my favorite meals. So it’s a great way to start the day.

As I carried our thing to the car I was greeted by the geese I love hearing them talk to each other as they fly, two straggles had me smiling as I watched them trying to catch the others.

The sunset lit the whole sky so I had to take these photographs.

11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity.
Jeremiah 29: 11-14 NIV
