Thanks to all of you who offered prayers for our uncle. We all need prayer, some times we need prayer groups. I pray about all day. Little prayers for people as they cross my mind. Prayers for my children and grandchildren always.
This morning we had a small rain. It'll help. I hope we get a bit more , this coming Friday and Saturday, as the weatherman is forecasting. It's hump day and I feel wore out already. Take care and have some fun today. xo

Aunt Sherry told me what happened during uncle Bill's surgery. He's been having some stomach problems,been to many doctors. One dr. decides he will help with a laparoscopic surgery. While they were doing surgery, they found a ligament was growing around the aorta near the stomach. The doctor was doing one last snip on the ligament and mistakenly ,snipped the aorta. Can you even imagine.?
Aunt Sherry and her son Bret were waiting for a 2 hour surgery and it was going on and on. By the grace of God, there was a wonderful vascular surgeon at the hospital at that time. He came to uncle Bill's rescue. Thus saving his life.
The doctors have told Bill his stomach is bruised from all the handling to clean up the blood. He had 26 units, that day. Another blessing, the hospital had his type. Bill says food doesn't taste good, so he only eats small portions. Aunt Sherry keeps trying new ways to slip in the protein he really needs. His appetite will return .
I looked at my aunt and uncle yesterday, saw their love for each other. I am so thankful they can always count on each other. God has blessed them with this time in life. Their lifes have been very uneventful till this past year. We all better tell our loved ones just how much they mean to us...we never know how many days there will be in our own lifes. xoxo

Today , we are taking Savannah to aunt Lizzy's. Liz is watching her the rest of the week for Karen. I have loved having Savannah here, though it wasn't lots of fun for her. I'll make it up to her, when I am well. She did go swimming with aunt Angie yesterday and enjoyed every minute. Angie took her home after swimming and Mark cooked out for them. When that little mermaid got home she was exhausted and ready to watch some of her favorite TV shows. She slept well too. I am sitting on the porch today, if I can stay off the pot. :):) Have fun today . xoxo

My daughter Angie says she will take Savannah swimming and entertain her for a day...but it's raining again today. So I may just have Savannah read to me and then I'll read to her. We can draw and color, that way I don't have to get craft stuff out and make a big mess for me to clean up. We can do some easy to make bookmarks too. You know we have to help our children out when we are able...I am doing my best at this time. Savannah's daycare lady is on vacation, and her other grandma is always busy, so it's up to me. Besides I just wanted to have some time with her. Just her.
I love this picture of our courthouse and that beautiful crisp sky. Hope all of you are doing well and starting your week off right. xoxo

Today is cooler after our rain yesterday. Yesterday,Ted called me from the Farmer's Market and asked if it was raining at home , yet. I told him to start packing up and warn the others....it had just started to rain and I could see a mile away that it was heavy. Ted came home shortly and said everyone started packing up their wares and didn't get wet. The tent canapy was wet , but it dried in the garage in no time. So that was a close call. Some of the venders at the market have things made of cloth, wood and soap....so they do not want to get wet. Hope all of you have a nice day today, hug somebody if you are able. We all could use a nice hug. xoxo

Hope all of you are staying cool. Please be careful, the heat can be dangerous. Make your children drink lots of water, wear sunscreen. If you take your babies out in the sun put a cap on them. Especially ones that have little hair. Thanks for letting me be "mommy" for a minute.:) xoxo

My sister and I looked around some more. Bought some of Horton's fudge for our dessert, since it was my sister's birthday. We had lunch at the Subway shop, then went to another place to get a nice cup of coffee to have our fudge. It was the most glorious day. God answered my prayers this week also. I can honestly say today I feel at peace. xo

Today I am going to the funeral home. A beautiful lady, that used to hire me to watch her sons ,has died. I always thought a lot of her. Three of her sons passed away before her., one at 50, one at 40, and the youngest at 25. Two from heart attacks, one from an accident. The loss of her sons had a toll on her. I think she was strong to the end. May God bless her soul.xo
