Other Information:
I've been doing a Bible Study group for almost a year now and I LOVE IT!! My faith has deepened in the past year as we've suffered some hard losses and extremely difficult times. I find comfort and joy in God and know that He WILL see us through hard times, even if I can't see how.

Happy 4th of July! I hope all is good with you this summer! I'm loving our cooler temps this past week. My flowers are beautiful with all the rain we've gotten the last couple weeks. My son got married two weeks ago. We love his wife. My daughter is expecting our first grandchild in Oct. We're so excited for the baby's arrival! Take care and I hope to hear from you soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hope your new job is going well! I'm loving our beautiful fall weather. We're adding a new master bedroom and bath to our home. This weather is allowing lots of work getting done! I'm so excited to get it done. I ordered new furniture as ours was my in-laws first bedroom furniture. It is over 60 yrs. old. Not one thing is wrong with it, but it just looks so old. Furniture is not made as good these days! I've been cleaning like crazy. I have taken 4 van loads to Goodwill and took a pick-up truck full of junk to the dump. I've lost 3Ibs. from all my work cleaning! Since I only have one little boy to watch I'm getting lots done during his nap time! I hope your having some weight loss success! Have a great day Shannon! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for your note! So glad to hear about your new job! That's so exciting! Feeling good with help you in your success with reaching your health goals! I'm trying to recover from some major back and hip pain. I've had two spinal injections and just had a hip injections on Thursday. I'm feeling better but in the future the doctor says I'll probably have to have back surgery again. That scares me to death! The first one was such a success, but I'm 16yrs. older now. I'm in Southern IL this weekend visiting my son and his fiancÚ. We've been working on wedding plans as their getting married next June. I'm only watching a 15 month old special needs little boy. I would retire but my daughter is trying to get pregnant so I might as well watch one for her child to play with! It was great to hear your doing good! I miss your notes! Keep in touch and have a great day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
