My Daughter's Birthday

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Tomorrow is my daughter's birthday - she will be 50! She was here recently and saw my memory pillow and now wants one. She is a "wanter" and so of course she would want a pillow like I have.

So today I picked up one for her at WalMart and yesterday I made a pillowcase for her. As you can see she loves horses.

Greg, my son, has lost his battle with cancer. The Lord took him early Monday morning. He last couple of days were very difficult - he could no longer move and was having a hard time breathing. But, he had gone to sleep and aroused only briefly a couple of time.

There have been so many blessings in our family during this time. He and his brother, Geoff, resolved their differences and had some special times sharing. And Geoff and his sister, Kathi, have also reconciled some.

Now we are planning a family graveside time and then a service at the church for his friends. Not sure of the date yet - the Holidays have delayed some of the procedures. And our pastor is in the hospital - again - with cellulitis. But this is giving me some time to relax and catch my breath. I had not realized how tired i had become.

I want to thank every one for their prayers and caring during this time. We have some wonderful friends and neighbors who have been so giving.

    I am so sorry to hear about Greg. Thank you for letting us know. I'm glad he is not in any more pain or suffering.

I know you must be exhausted right now. I think it actually really helps to have some time before the funeral or memorial service. That way you aren't so tired and can be more "present".

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I know from experience that losing a child is devastating--we're not supposed to bury our kids.
You and yours will be in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss my heart weeps for you I can't imagine losing a child, they say it's the worst and I believe it. I'm glad that they got to reconcile before he was taken away.
I can't imagine how exhausted you must be physically and emotionally, I wish you the very best and may emoticon god bless you and your family during this very difficult time.
At least he won't be suffering anymore and now you have your own guardian angel,god bless!

Just received this from my sister Linda, in Medford, Oregon. Right now they are at 3 degrees and we are at minus 3 degrees.

But, we are so thankful that we have heat and it is so warm and cozy in our apartment.
Have seen that some areas are without power. Just praying that the people are able to keep warm.

My sister said there was snow in their forecast but it did not arrive - she lives in SW Oregon -
but this morning the snow is getting dumped here in Pendleton. True, we do get snow here, but we had sunshine in the forecast - not snow. And it is freezing - so fun driving. It is mostly flat in town, but I do not have my studded tires on yet - will call today and make an appointment.

This was taken earlier and the snow is still falling.

Geoff's Santa

Sunday, December 01, 2013

Am getting out a few Christmas decorations - just trying to get into the Holiday spirit.
And, this little fellow was a gift to my middle son from his Grandmother many years ago - filled with ribbon candy.
Finally last year I got it out and redid for him - and filled with chocolate kisses.

Now he has taken his place on the coffee table - just waiting to be filled.
