HEAVEN HELP ME/US !!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I truly hate being a Debbie Downer
all the time lately.
Last week Jack told me of another
family CRISIS, which he had been
keeping from me for about a month

LORD, LORD, LORD
PLEASE GIVE ME STRENGTH !

I am not going into details,
but when it involves your
beloved, only child........

emoticon emoticon emoticon
PLEASE continue keeping the whole family in your prayers.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon
all for your continued support/likes/comments/etc
I have only been doing the minimum on SP
So much so, every other week or so SP
clears my email notices and I have to re-sign up !

emoticon
for not pulling my weight helping/encouraging you all !
I feel guilty, but honestly, most days I am BARELY GETTING BY
emotionally and physically.
(For example, I didn't go to bed last night - too upset!)

Well, am going to close and try to get a couple more things done
before getting myself to BED TONIGHT - by midnight.

Again,

emoticon
my Beloved Spark Friends !
Even though I don't communicate much lately,
You All are in my heart and thoughts.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

LOVE, PEACE and BLESSINGS !

Dear Oscar is in Heaven Now

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Yesterday morning Jack found his dear father Oscar.
My first thought was, "Well, Oscar is with Marie. He is happy."

Matthew is taking it the hardest.

They are 2 WONDERFUL Christians and people. Their shoes will be very hard - if not impossible - to replace.

THANKS for all your Prayer, comments, etc.

They still are needed during the next few months.

Earlier this evening I was ruminating over the loss.
Then God reminded me of a quote/saying (don't remember where or by whom)
Probably paraphrasing, but..

Don't be sad because they are gone.
Be happy/glad because they were in your life.

HOW TRUE !

Am going to get ready for bed. If I am to make it through the funeral and receiving of friends, I definitely need more sleep than usual.

THANKS for your continued Prayers and Concern.

LOVE TO ALL!

Frances

Only 9 Hours Sleep in Last 60 Hours ! But also GOOD NEWS !

Thursday, June 05, 2014



Absolutely cannot handle things any more.

Jack finally told his brother that we HAVE to get a regular daytime sitter for Dear Oscar.
One starts tomorrow. She is an NA and will reheat food (still from us) and do light housework.
WHEW ! What a Relief!
IF... I can make it until tomorrow !


Matthew is with Oscar tonight.

MORE GOOD INFO !!!

2) Oscar is walking most of the time with a walker instead of a wheelchair

3) Nurse said Oscar has improved enough to stay alone after he goes to bed


As I said, Matthew is there tonight, but we are still concerned in case Oscar gets up during the night. Someone will still stay if needed. Matthew also said he will continue to try to stay at once a week just to be with his Papaw!

After coming home this evening, I felt I was literally at the breaking point.
First I had 6 wheat thins - all I'd eaten ALL DAY !
Then I called Dad. He is doing well. Can't get to see him until at least Sunday. I paced for the 20 minutes we talked. YAY !
Got on pc to check 600 MORE EMAILS! (And post update here)

This post by Matthew on Facebook took my breath away and IMMEDIATELY helped CALM me!
So I HAVE to share with You Dear Friends.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I!

Oh, Yes, MORE STRESS.

Jack's 50th high school reunion is this weekend.
I feel so OLD, FAT and UGLY !
Not sleeping much has not helped.

I just want to make it through this weekend - reunion stuff tomorrow night and most of Saturday.
Then, Lord willing, next week maybe Jack and I can RELAX !
Whatever THAT IS - I can hardly remember!


HOPEFULLY, I can get back on track - my life and Spark.
STRESS, BUSYNESS, LITTLE SLEEP, LITTLE EXERCISE, TERRIBLE EATING
all have taken a big toll.

But

I AM N-O-T GIVING UP !


THANK YOU SO MUCH for your continued support
while I have been going through this hellish period.
Your Prayers/Good Thoughts have sustained me.

Isn't it funny how people you have not met - and probably never will -
can have such a major influence!

I will never forget your kindness !

And Jack was one of the younger looking fellas !

WONDERFUL DAY !

Also 3 loads of laundry, grocery shopping
and checking on Oscar. He ADORED the NA that came today.
There will be 2 different ones alternating days.
The other one comes tomorrow !

Sending OODLES of LOVE to You All !

    I tried to look at Matthew's page, but it wouldn't open up.

Try not to stress out about the reunion - who cares what others think? You have been dealing with many serious issues and have come through them with flying colors. A reunion is not worth it! Just enjoy the company of your husband and have FUN!

I am so very proud of you for coming through everything you've been through lately! Glad to hear that Oscar is doing better and that you have hired someone to be with him so you can finally take care of yourself a little!

Besides horrible sinus trouble, dear son Matthew

been able to stay in over a week.
We hope he hasn't developed an ulcer


Just wanted to share the semi-good news

Not going to waste our time tonight on the pc

THEY HELPED !
