Being Taken Care of By God

Monday, September 10, 2012



This is something only the Lord could do.

Last week, on our way from Hasting, Michigan to Michigan City, Indiana, I lost my trailer keys. I wasn't worried because both my brother and sister have a set of keys to my 5th wheel.

Dale and Sue stopped a a Meijer's to get gas when the cashier asked Dale if he was there a few days ago. He said yes----she pulled out a set of keys and asked if they looked familiar. At first, he said no--then he realized they were the keys I had lost. Apparently I had laid them on the counter when we stopped there for gas on our way down to Indiana.

Coincidence??? I don't thinks so.....only the Lord would put the same cashier there when Dale came in again.

This is a BIG THANKS TO THE LORD FOR WATCHING OVER MY KEYS!!!

My Michigan Visit From July 24 to Sept 5

Saturday, September 08, 2012

July 23, I left home in Missouri to spend several weeks with my sisters and brother in Michigan. I arrived at Mae (sister)'s house the morning of July 24. Mae and Phillip (her husband) moved my 5th wheel out to my brother's (Dale) place on July 25 because he has a set up where I could have full hook ups for the 5th wheel.

Since then, I have been on a whirl wind of activity. I have attended my sister in law's family reunion, had a luncheon with her sisters, attended 2 concerts (where I got in free), attended my ex son in law's brother's birthday party, gone to 2 casinos, been thrift store shopping, yard sales, walked an outlet mall, and visited a lighthouse in Indiana. Besides visiting sisters and grandchildren. WHEW!!!!!!!!!

Also visited my husband's sister and brother and my 93 year old aunt (my dad's sister). I attended TOPS meetings each week as a visitor.

Last Wednesday (Sept. 5), I left Michigan to spend 4 days in Michigan City, Indiana with my sister, brother, cousin, and their spouses. This is where we spent 2 hours one day walking the outlet mall. Today, we walked for another 2 hours at the lighthouse park. I walked 3/4 mile out to the lighthouse and 3/4 mile back. We got to pass through a wedding party on the way. This was after we spent part of the afternoon tromping through thrift stores and stopping at a couple of yard sales.

Tomorrow, I will be heading home. this has been a whirlwind wonderful trip. Next year, we hope to visit the Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan's upper peninsula.

OOPs-forgot we also went to Shipshewana, Indiana and a big bulk food store.

This has been a happy sad visit. Happy to see everyone, sad it has ended, happy to be going home and see my kids and grands again.

I will probably think of more to add later as I relive my memories..

A Funny Story

Friday, August 31, 2012

Yesterday Sue & Dale were at a thrift shop. I had mentioned that I would like a set of scales in the 5th wheel. They saw a Taylor scale for 4.99. Dale called and asked me about it. I had him get it for me. It is a professional Taylor scale with the great big dial on the top!!

Anyway, after eating brunch, I carried it out to the trailer and decided to weigh myself. Mind you this is after eating a meal and a snack---it weighed me 3 pounds lighter than the TOPS scale did on Thursday!!! Of course I did pee a lot yesterday so my feet aren't nearly as swollen. I think I'm going to like this scale.........hehehe

Dale weighed himself to check that it was accurate---he weighed within 1 pound of his weight at the doctor's office.

Dale and Sue are my brother and sister in law where my 5th wheel is parked while I am here.
