OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

Thank you so much for the kind words, My daughter is doing much better! Praise be to God!!!
I live in Michigan, The thumb of Michigan that is! just a few miles from the shores of Saginaw Bay on lake Huron. My background picture was taken on my deck over looking my flower garden. I love bird watching and have all my bird feeders, baths, and bird houses there. I live on a small river with many birds in my yard. I am a dog lover also. I have a golden retriever that is just like a child. I work at an assisted living home and she is the pet therapy dog. She goes to work with me daily.
When you go to lead your bible class God will give you the right words to say and it will be fine! Just have faith and trust in Jesus.
So sorry to hear about your son, he is sitting with Jesus and smiling down on you. It is so hard when our loved ones are taken to soon. My sister was just diagnosed with lung and liver cancer stage 4, we have all been praying for her. she will be starting treatment next week.
I also knit and crochet.
I hear it is beautiful in your State! Keep sparkin VivianKay

Thanks Barb, I did enjoy it. It was in a museum too and I'd forgotten my camera...I was really cross with myself, the 'phone rang as I was about to leave the house and I put it down and forgot to pick it up again emoticon

Sorry about your plants, I love iris too!
We've just had a doozy of a rain shower, so hard it has broken some plants down, all in about ten minutes!
