Smile Good to see...

Joan, Catherina, Michele, & Sue---I'm glad to see you are still around! This forum saw me thru the dark winter of 2010. Thank you for all the random cards that came @ just the time I needed a lift. Things fell apart last summer, but things are getting better. I hope to be giving more RAK this summer. Hugs to those of you who prayed for me. Have a wonderful night to all!

We made it through the art/garden tour. The day started out sunny but windy. Some gusts were enough to dump artwork over. A painting by one artist fell onto the cement and shattered the glass but didn't damage the painting. An hour into the tour, a big black cloud showed up with a cold wind and a few raindrops towards the tail end. Good thing it didn't downpour. Once we got everything packed up, the sun came out again. No sales, but it was a fun afternoon.

So very sorry you went through such a dark time but grateful you are doing better.

Please remember Cole's mommy, Moireen and daddy Aaron today as it would have been Cole's 6th birthday. Thanks.

Hopefully no one will take offense to the word, but cancer just "sucks" - it is heart breaking and I just want a cure already and for everyone who is suffering to be cured. Is that too much to ask?

Michele, after being involved for nearly three years, I totally agree with you. It is barbaric what these kids go through and very few options are given to the families as far as treatment. One mother who lost her child a few years ago, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She posted that there were lots of options available to her but only one to her son that gave little promise.

It is pitiful what portion of funding goes to childhood cancer from the American cancer Assoc. That's why so many parents are banded together to start foundations/organizations to bring more awareness and to make sure their $$$ go directly to research for the children, 46 children in this country are diagnosed everyday and 7 lose their fight.

Sorry for the rant, but have lost way too many of my sweet precious heroes and it just breaks my heart.

Caterina- Can't agree more!
Michele- Hi
Debbie- Glad it was a good day. Sorry V didn't sell anything.
SuzieQ- I am glad you felt the support from this forum. That is what I love about this group. Hope things continue getting better for you! Come back anytime even if it is just to chat.

I agree with you, Michele. Cancer sucks.
Cat, it is so sad how there is so little options for those kids. And they are heroes. I don't know if I could handle what they go through. I know too many people in our small town who have/had cancer. Most of them have lost the battle.

Debbie, my dad had cancer which took his life at 83 and it was awful to watch him die in terrible pain; however, he lived to see his children, grandchildren and a great grandchild. Since getting involved with childhood cancer, am shocked at the statistics for these precious heroes.

Like you, I have no idea how I would handle watching my sweet grandchildren go through the horrible ordeal. Am so grateful for my healthy children and grandchildren.

Good morning, someone sent this to me and hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. This little boy is beyond awesome - his family must be so proud!

Good morning my dear friends!!

My BFF from High School her mom just had a double mastectomy yesterday, waiting to hear on how all went she had cancer and it had not spread so praying this got it all. So I am still in cancer sucks mode and it all breaks my heart.

DD is a monitor for VBS this week at my sister's church and DS said she has been doing awesome with the 3rd and 4th graders and the kids love her! It was so nice to hear - I am proud of her for doing this. I did want her to feel what it was like to serve the Lord and she is being blessed by it too. God is so good.

DH has done a lot of work, now all he has to do is get the water in the house flowing again. But the laundry room is almost finished, woot woot!! and it has a real floor now. Better than what it had originally. We emptied out the big ole entertainment center that we have had for 17 years and boy did that thing hold a lot! That took almost a day to sort and throw some out and re-organize so we can get rid of it, hopefully the carpet will be here next week for upstairs and DD's room. My bedroom and craft room are still on overload for lack of space.

Hope everyone has a good day!
HUGS
Michele

Cat, that was AWESOME! Thanks for sharing it with us.
Michele, hope the doctors got all of the cancer.
Our Relay For Life is in two weeks. As I walk around the track, I will pray for everyone who is suffering from this horrible disease and their family and friends who have to stand by helplessly. If anyone is interested in donating to this cause, please pm me and I will send you the link to my Relay For Life page. Please, do not feel you have to donate through me.

God is for us. God is with us. He will see us through all of our trials.

Joan, I got my card today. Thanks so much. You always have a way of sending cards just when someone needs a lift.

This week has been spent gathering the groceries and tail end of donations for Monday. It looks like I should have enough help serving the food. I was never worried about the cooks. I just hope everyone shows up. I am so looking forward to having next week off from work. Part of it will be returning stuff, finishing up the accounts, and writing thank you notes. We need to plan a volunteer appreciation party. It'll probably be pizzas again since that is so much easier on us. Won't have to do any cooking, except maybe make a couple desserts. Guess I better figure out what running around I need to do before work. Have a great day!

you are welcome for the cards. I need to do something to keep me busy during the summer. Of course I could clean.... but I am only going to do what I need to do.
DH has been out of work all week due to his poison sumac rash. It is icky. Just starting to heal. We have used the time to do a lot of running around.

Clean? What's that? My house is a disaster. The minute I get off work we're off and running. It's going to be nice having next week off. Of course, DH is still griping that I didn't take this week off. If I could have afforded to take the extra time off, I would have taken this week off also. We do have lots of stuff that has to be done tomorrow and Friday. I'm looking forward to July 5 now. Then I will have one more event out of the way. The Relay For Life won't be as hectic. I just have to show up and walk part of the time. My BIL is parking his motor home at the high school for us so we'll have someplace to nap if needed.

Thanks, Joan. I have managed to get over 30 hours of reading done the past couple weeks. Amazing how 10 min. here and there can add up. At least all the events this summer are fun. Next summer will be the same without the garden tour.

Have a thoroughly wonderful Thursday!

Joan, glad DH is starting to feel better hope everyone in the family is doing better - thinking of your BIL and their family.

Sue, miss seeing you post! Hope all is well

Linda, my friend - how are you - hope you and your family are doing well. Miss you too!

Joanne, hope everyone in PA is having a great start to their summer, all the parties and graduations and such!

Cat, hope you are feeling better my friend!

Suzie, hope you post again would love to know how you are doing.

Deb ~ PM me QUICK! I need your new address!

Michele ~ Sorry I haven't been posting much. I've been doing great. Just trying not to over do with the social networking. Now, if I could just kick the 'games' time suck, I've have it made!

I still pray for all of you daily. And I'm still trying to get (and keep) my stamping mojo. I've been doing well on the exercising. I've lost 33 lbs so far, since mid-January. DH has almost caught up with me....he's lost 29. I really feel a lot better, but still want to lose another 17 lbs. DH and I booked a week in Cancun for the end of November. I can't wait! I love our resort, and the fact that it's all inclusive. It's like heaven on earth! We're using one of our free weeks, and have enough miles to get our airfare for free as well. Woohoo! I DO love free!!!

Better start thinking about bed. Sweet dreams to all!

Hugs,
Sue

For all of you who have been praying for my SIL's struggle with cancer. She just had her 18 month check up after cancer treatment. She is still clear and finally gaining weight.

Hi, Sue. Congrats on the weight loss. I've been so crazy busy that I haven't done much exercising at all. I've gained all my weight back that I lost three years ago. Everytime I get my exercise routine going, my boss changes my work schedule. She changed my Friday schedule, again, but this time I'm getting an extra hour out of it. No complaints here.

Joan, that's good news about your SIL. Will pray that she stays cancer-free.

I am on vacation until the 11th. Today won't be much relaxation since we have lots of running around to do. We placed an order with Food Service America and I've been up waiting for them to show up at my doorstep. i watched the truck drive right past my house to deliver to the sandwich shop half a block away. Then I watched it drive by my house again going the other way. Called the service rep and she said it depends on how the truck is loaded. Our order was loaded second so it'll be this afternoon before they deliver. The truck is loaded across the state from us so I understand they don't know Havre at all; but wouldn't you think they would have a map of all the places they deliver to so they can load the truck in a more efficient manner instead of going from one part of town to another and back again? It's a good thing Havre isn't very big and you can get just about anywhere in 5-10 min. and that's if traffic is bad and you hit all the red lights, of which we have very few.

Time to start our running around. If I don't get a chance to check in, have a safe, fun holiday weekend.

Joan, every woman needs a pair or two of new shoes once in a while. Lexi fixed it so I had to buy a couple pairs of shoes that aren't tennis shoes. I still can't figure out how she got some of those shoes out of the closed closet. She is very sneaky.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I think we're all ready for tomorrow. Just have to load up the trucks tonight so they're ready to hook up to the grills in the morning and the fun begins.

I hope I am not offending anyone by posting this prayer in honor of today!

Independence Day Prayer

Lord, on this Independence Day I am reminded of all those who have sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of your Son, Jesus Christ. Let me not take my freedom, both physical and spiritual, for granted. May I always remember that my freedom was purchased at a very high price. My freedom cost others their very lives.

Lord, today, bless those who have served and continue to give their lives for my freedom. With favor and bounty meet their needs and watch over their families. Amen

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th everyone!

I just got home today from a three day two night stay in the hospital. I'll try to make it short, so I can get to bed.

Friday I felt miserable all day. Abdominal pain, vomited once, trouble urinating. Thought it was just more trouble with my bladder. Saturday morning I got up to pee, did so with some effort and pain, stood up, walked to the counter, hesitated thinking I might vomit because I was getting clammy. Next thing I know DH is slapping me trying to get me to come to. I did for a few seconds, then went back under. I know he was so scared. I heard him say "Come back to me" and I did. I didn't know what had happened or where I was. He got me back to bed, turned on the ceiling fan, and that felt great to me. He said he needed to take me to the ER, but I said I didn't need to go. Finally I agreed, and we got to the ER around 6am.

They did a CT scan and (around noon) said I had acute appendicitis, and that I had to have surgery right away. The appendix was pushing on my bladder, so that's why I thought the problem was my bladder. Well, the right away ended up being at 7pm Saturday. They ended up keeping me two nights!. The surgeon said if we had waited another day it would have ruptured. Thank the Lord that I passed out when I did, so I would agree to go in. Got home around 3 today. Went to a movie (yes I did), grocery shopping then home. Of course I had to put things away and get things organized from being gone three days. I saw a few fireworks, but wasn't really into it. Had a "discussion" with DH which was inevitable. We are both tired, disappointed at how our long weekend turned out, and I'm still very sore. We got it all out and made up. Now it's time for bed.....my OWN bed!

I'm supposed to take it easy for at least 6 weeks. That's hard for me.

Joan ~ I love your avatar. Just wish I could see it bigger.

Deb ~ Sorry, but your BD card will be a little late. (see above).

Love you all and hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Hugs,
Sue
