You guys are so great! I got a PM from Beverly asking how I was doing. I am okay. I got back home last night and of course off to work today and just hadn't had a chance to get on SCS. My niece however is having a tough time but that is to be expected. Her in-laws and brother/sister-in-laws are great/ They are so supportive of her and are taking her under their wing. They are truly wonderful people!
Thanks for your concern everyone. I sure appreciate it!
Glad that your back and doing okay.....hang in there!!
I have a New CC Designs Spring Trevor.... to the first person who agrees to send my 73 year old granny a handmade Christmas Card... (she loves Angels, butterflies, precious moments, tea cups, religious, Santa and anything else really).
Hahha. Yeah, she rotates, My Mom's in brrville, usually in the warmer months, My Aunt's in AZ in the coldest months, and then us during the rest of the months. Though she skipped most of my Aunts last year to avoid the family drama that was happening there... so we had her longer. She likes it with me best! hehe. But I lived with her as a kid, and I was her caregiver in High School/College.
My Granny is more than a few Greats.... I think 17! 2 from me.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. No matter what our circumstances or the hardship we are going through right now, we can all find something to be truly grateful for. I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As the song says..."Amazing Grace...how sweet the sound...that saved a wretch like me." Amazing Grace for us all. God bless you all as you celebrate today.
Melissa, I mailed Trevor today. Sorry for the delay... it has been a rough holiday!! My Granny fell the day before thanksgiving and thought she may re fractured her hip. My brother and sister came down on thanksgiving... they are 15 and 16 and live with her at my moms where she fell!! So we were all very worried. I will feel lots better when she is back here! And my Daughter turned 3 today and we had her party on Saturday, so it has been busy busy. I am going to through my room today. I have lots to pass forward.
I know there is a thread for this, but I'm posting here because I spend so much time on this thread. I know that there are greater needs than my request. I'm not going through the emotion of having lost a loved one or a desperately ill family member, BUT... PLEASE PRAY that it doesn't flood our house again. Our city has just put out a Flood Warning for our area. Our home has been flooded twice in the last four years.
The first one totaled our two used vehicles [they were in our garage] and we had to rip our house out to the studs...flooring and walls and everything. We lost so much and had to live with my sis and her husband for months till we moved back into our home. I had to toss TONS of stamping supplies because of the flood waters. We had insurance on the structure, but not our contents.
We are older now and do not want to have to go through this again. Three of the homes on our street have had their foundations raised by cinder blocks FOUR HIGH in order to protect them from flood waters. The next street over has had five homes raised and two homes razed. Know what I mean?
We can't sell our home, no one wants to live here. The first one was what they called a "100 year flood." Well, they just keep happening, probably because of all the building going on in our county.
Oh, dear...I'm rambling. The river is supposed to crest on Wednesday morning. I'm going to log off and go try to clean up my stamp room and get everything off the floor. LOL...that will take all morning. PLEASE pray for a hedge around our city and that the rain will disappear. I don't want anyone to have to go through this again.
