Joyce - I'll be lifting up prayers for peace and safety for you! Also, that you will meet your goals - in getting rid of stuff and making a little cash.

Tomorrow our city is having a community paper shredding day. I gathered all my papers (1 large bin!) to take in the morning. After that it's time to get ready for Catie's bday party at 1. Most of the house is cleaned up, I'm waiting to do the floors until tomorrow since it's rainy out and every time the dog comes in from outside there are little muddy prints everywhere. I'm praying for clear skies as well. We have some outdoor games that we want to do, otherwise it will be 'Just Dance' on the Wii and maybe doing nails or something. We'll have to see.

Any plans for the weekend?

Amen;

Consider checking with your health insurance to see if you can get some counseling on anger management or coping skills--- for the kids; or it might be called 'family counseling'
Since there was actual physical injury, this might be available.

My heart is full of compassion for your pain...perhaps something good can come of it.

Dear Father God - I lift up HANNAPRAYER and her children to You and pray that You will cover them all in Your peace. Please bring physical healing and restoration to their relationships. Lord, her mother's heart is hurting. Only you know the whole situation. Please hold them close and shine the light of Your love on them. It's in Jesus' precious and holy name I pray. Amen.

I could use some prayer ladies... My kids got into a fight and the result was a broken bone. I'm just sick inside. I really need wisdom and peace.

This week has been less stressful at work and I feel MUCH better.

I posted a status "Today Become more aware of the blessings that surround you." which my computer put in 10 times...
OK, Father in Heaven...are YOU adding this emphasis to be 10 times more aware of the blessings that surround me??? I believe YOU can use the computer glitches in Your Service!

Good morning Ladies!

I'm just checking in to say emoticon and see how things are going with you. It is soccer season so lots of running around and schedule changes going on here, plus the end of year school programs and things coming up in the next month.

Drop a quick note and tell how you have been doing lately!

We have a noon service on Good Friday that I am probably going to go to, as long as my MIL is taking the kids for the afternoon. Sunday we have 3 services - 7 am, 9am, and 10:40 am. We'll do the 9 am one since we head to hubby's cousin's house who lives about 40 minutes north.

Anyone else have plans for this weekend?

Thursday last supper
Friday reviewing the time on the cross
Saturday remembering the depth of depression in Jesus death
and THEN the resurrection

This year I am trying to fit some of that in while working the week-end emoticon

I think I put walk 10 minutes each day on my list of 3 things I wanted to do in March. I have actually done it everyday, even on the days when I didn't feel like it. It has made a big difference in how I feel.

Spring is a great time to get out and get moving. Let's do it!

Hello ladies!

I'm with you, Shirley. My weight is hanging steady pretty high right now. I know I'd feel better if I got up and moved more. It is Spring break here for the kids and the weather hasn't been the greatest so it's been a lot of indoor time. We did manage a family bike ride last night. Today is supposed to be pretty mild too, so we'll get outside in a bit.

I did join the Spring 5% challenge, so I'm hoping for some great results this time. I really need to buckle down, no more excuses. With the weather looking better I'm hoping to get out and walk the dog more, maybe ride my bike or go to the gym when the kids are back in school. Big ideas - I just need to follow through with action.

How are you doing?

Joyce, that's awesome! Getting schooling will change the whole course of those girls' lives. :-)

I'm doing well today. I got the results of my sleep study and found out that I stop breathing an average of 66 times per HOUR. They set me up with a CPAP machine and its changing my life. I'm so much more alert, and have more energy. I'm still a bit tired, but I think my body is healing from the lack of rest. My appetite is changing and the irresistible cravings for sugar have lessened. My goal now is to increase my water intake and the health of my diet.

How are you gals doing?

Thankful for the committment and work of friends who worked with me.... Yesterday delivered 75 completed sanitary hygiene kits which now start their trip to Limpopo Province, South Africa.

This will enable 75 young women to stay in school...who knows what long lasting results that will make!

Its been a crazy week here, with my aunt coming to visit, two trips to Seattle Children's Hospital (2 hour drive each way), a sleep study for my daughter, a sleep study for me, and worry about my aunt who chose to go back to a bad situation despite being welcome here to stay longer.

The good news though, is that I will likely have a CPAP machine soon and hopefully get some energy back and my aunt's situation is temporary. Trying to de-stress and get back into my routine now for the new week ahead.

Also, good news, is my pre-diabetic 11 year old who has high blood pressure is FINALLY listening to the need for her not to sneak food and she lost two pounds. The staff at Children's Hospital was glad along with us.

Totally Exhausted.
Went in early because RN was by herself. 6discharges, admits and all the other normal stuff.
Then 2 hours later started getting text messages that my husband (who had driven 90 miles to participate in a Science Fiction Convention with son and friends) had a seizure caused by low blood sugar. When this happens in public and he bites his tongue and bleeds all over, they call an ambulance and take him to Emergency Department of Hospital.
I felt I had to stay with MY patients...son was with DH...but I was an emotional mess
After many tests, DH was released to son and went back to his hotel.
Today..totally exhausted.

Hubby is took me out for a movie tonight....he is a member of Coast Guard Auxilary
The movie is "The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard's Most Daring Sea Rescue"
I am told it will be gone by Thursday so it is having only a short run. and there were only 5 in the theatre for the 7pm show
Imagine it will be out on DVD sooner.

Strengthen us in the tasks of this day. Amen

Hello friends! emoticon I've been MIA for the first month of 2016. Between sickness and marriage issues, I'm very glad to put January behind me. Things are looking much better for February! emoticon

Tina, I can so relate to the house issues. We bought this house 8 years ago. It was an older house then, but we had a DIY attitude that we would fix it. Well, babies didn't come along for us, but braces and college, etc. did. So, we have slowly done a very small amount of the work I want to get done. Maybe I need to make some goals for 2016 in that area...hmmmm

I'm home today because DS has an appointment in just a bit to maybe get braces off. I'm enjoying this morning though of being able to drink my coffee and catch up on spark.

I hope everyone is doing well. I've missed y'all! Hugs and blessings! emoticon

It's always good to see a returning friend. I will be lifting up prayers for you and your daughter. I know I could use a good dose of motivation too. I do have an appointment with a personal trainer tomorrow to learn some of the machines at the gym and to come up with a game plan to get some weight off and gain strength.

God is holding us close - we can do this!

Hi everyone!

I haven't checked in for quite awhile. I figured I was gone so long I was forgotten, but Joyce was sweet enough to put a comment and sparkgoodie on my page today. Thanks, Joyce! It made me realize I can still be part of things.

I've been gaining weight despite trying to do better and its been super discouraging. There have been a LOT of ups and downs and trials lately and I'm hoping the dust will start to settle soon and life can get a new normal. In the meantime, I've been trying to get exercise going regularly and I'm really trying to make some diet improvements. I've got a burst of motivation for that at the moment - a few days ago my 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with high blood pressure. If not for me, then for her, I've got to get this healthy eating thing right.

Nice to meet you to all those who've been around for awhile but I haven't met yet.

Hello Sweet Ladies!

I hope you all are doing well. I'm finally over my cold and now Catie is coming down with one. We are making progress on our renovation! We ordered the hardwood flooring, it should come in this Wed!!! emoticon Hubby got all the door trim and baseboard in for our upper floor (we live in a bi-level) and down the steps to the front door. It's finally starting to come together. We bought this house with the plans to renovate it over time, then kid #1, kid #2 and kid #3 came along and put those plans on the backburner. Now it's finally time! We've been here for 13 years. We did do our bedroom and the family room shortly after moving in, but now the family room needs redone since it got the most damage when the dishwasher flooded the house. Right now it is used as the workshop for all the tools hubby needs for the rest of the reno (saws, ladder, painting stuff...)

Anyway...I want to know how you are doing. I am praying that you all are feeling God's love and peace, His comfort and His provision. You are a child of the Living God! A daughter of the King!

Hi friends!

Tina, I loved reading about your daughter's goodie bag. My daughter got hers off in November and she got the same kind of stuff. What a cute idea! She also had a t-shirt that says "Ortho Survivor" in the same theme as survivor.

My 12 year old son is the one who has been sick here. He has been sick since Saturday. Thankfully he hasn't missed school as school has been closed because of the threat of ice/snow. I gave up on the over the counter meds and took him to the doctor today. She diagnosed sinus infection and started him on an antibiotic.

It's been a weird and stressful week for me. We only had school 1 day and 2 teacher workdays. Tension is still there between my husband and me. Just trying to keep my head above water right now.

I hope y'all are all doing well. Stay warm!

Hello Ladies!

Our weather has finally turned cold and snowy. We've been blessed with a mild winter so far, so I can't really complain. It is January in Ohio!

I've been fighting a cold for about 4-5 days now, but it seems to be getting better. I could just about breathe without meds today. Lots of tissues though. emoticon Catie got her braces off today! emoticon first round was a great success. She goes back tomorrow for a semi-permanent retainer that she'll have until she gets braces again as a teen. She will lose some teeth and get new ones in before they start the next round. After the appointment, we went straight to McD's for a chocolate milkshake. The orthodontist gave her a bag of candy that she hasn't been allowed to have with braces - Cracker Jacks, sour gummies, gum, a candy bar emoticon ...very cute idea! Also included was a toothbrush, paste and floss emoticon . She did so good this whole time. She's only 9 and she took care of her teeth so well, no problems at all.

We are making progress on our home projects too (or at least hubby is!) emoticon We go and order our hardwood flooring tomorrow. It's been such a long time that the house has been torn up, so I am very happy with the progress.

I hope you all are having a good start to the new year. Drop a quick note and tell us how you are doing. Lifting up prayers for all my Sisters-in-Christ!

We were actually dry today, but heavy rain is coming in tonight and tomorrow. However, after watching the coverage of the flooding, tornados, and snow, I am not complaining about our rain.

Joyce---I love the daily message that's tied in to the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you for doing it!

I took advantage of the sunny day to take care of some errands today. Kids and I had a dentist appointment and then went shopping. We had some gifts to return and I spent my gift card for new walking/running shoes. They had to special order the ones I wanted because of my big ol' feet, but I am excited to have some new ones. Just what I need to start the New Year off right!

I really like the 12 Days idea. It's a treat to open email and see "You have been given a goodie" Thanks Joyce!

Ravyna.....Praying for your safety with all the rain and roads closed in Missouri.

Hubby getting lots of sleep and doing better. Modern medicine in wonderful.

I have challenged myself to give a Goodie gift to each friend and active member of this team each of the 12 Days of Christmas....If I run short on time it may become a discussion thread as Liesa did for December prior to Christmas Day. Will have to see if I can do it!

Joyce--Hope your hubby is better.

Ravyna---Praying for your long trip. It may seem even longer with a 3 1/2 year old!

My daughter and hubby ended up going to the Christmas Eve service while the boys and I stayed home and made dinner. No candlelight. So I am kind of glad I didn't go. I wanted candle light and "O Holy Night/Silent Night" kind of service. He said the first part was more serious, but the last 1/2 was perfect for those with younger children as they gave the kids kazoos to play Christmas music with. Yep, I'm okay missing that.

Today we went to meet my brother and SIL for lunch. He is really the only family I have so it's nice to see him and spend time with him. It finally stopped raining here today so we were able to get outside and enjoy the sun as we walked around after lunch. Seeing everyone in shorts on December 26 is just a little too weird for me though! I like winter to feel like winter. Remind me I said that when I get snowed in in February and start to go nuts! emoticon

So sorry your husband was sick. Hope he gets better soon. We leave in the morning with our daughter and DGD to drive to St Louis where my husband's family is. A long drive, which may become longer with a 3 1/2 year old. God bless you all.

Our church is doing something new this year. On Christmas day they are having a gathering for folks who don't have anyone to celebrate with. They are going to have worship, fellowship, and a meal. I thought that was kind of cool for anyone who was alone this year.

We enjoyed a day at home yesterday. Even with the rain making the outside dreary we had a fun family day inside with games and gingerbread houses.

Today is pretty much a repeat of yesterday. Still rainy and thunder storms outside. We are still in pjs playing games inside. DH wants to go to the Christmas Eve service later. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about it. I like the idea of quiet candle services. But we got a strange email from the church about the service including hot apple cider, "Uncle Tom", and kazoos! Really??? That doesn't sound quiet to me. Plus with the storms I'm leaning toward a quiet night at home with the family.

I hope you all are enjoying some time with your loved ones.

Joyce, I broke my streak last week when I couldn't log into the internet. Had to start over. We celebrated our family Christmas last Saturday with all but my son, who wouldn't come if my DIL was here. We had a good time anyway and most gifting centered on the children.

We will go to Christmas candle light service tomorrow night at 6, and Christmas Day may have over a homeless woman who is a member of our church. She is living at a women's shelter right now. It depends if her teenage children have any plans that might include her.

Or we might go see the new Star Wars movie.

On Saturday we will be driving with our daughter and granddaughter to St Louis to be with my husband's family until we drive back on New Year's Day. Our niece is super excited to see her cousin, my granddaughter and I know they will have a lot of fun.

Yesterday both grandson and granddaughter were here together. Today just my grandson while his Mama works. It is so nice that God allows me the privilege to serve by watching and enjoying my grandchildren.

So nice to have you all check in! Today is some running around - Sam's club for a few essentials and later take Catie to a friends house for a bit while I take the boys for haircuts and to the grocery store. We are having Christmas Eve with my family at one of the villas at hubby's work. Our house is too small for all of us. Christmas morning is just us and then we go to his cousin's for lunch. I have two things to get yet - earrings for my daughter (she just got her ears pierced on Monday!) and some large gift bags for new clothes for the kids. I'll grab those when I take the boys for their haircuts this afternoon. I only have a few things left to wrap.

I can't believe Christmas is almost here! It is 60* today - unheard of in NE OH in December.

I hope you all have a very blessed Christmas! emoticon

Working today and part of tomorrow, but still have wrapping to do. Thankfully, I do NOT have to brave the crazy madness of the shopping world today. I had a filling come out of a tooth this morning, and I called the dentist to make an appointment, but the office is closed until after the new year. Hopefully, it will be okay until then. I will have some less busy time next week with work. I'm enjoy Christmas music while I work and wrap gifts. Away in a Manger is on right now; that always makes me smile. emoticon The weather here has been spring-like warm, like many days in a row. So that's how I'm doing in a nutshell. I know that's a bunch of random thoughts strung together.

Sounds like a busy day for you Joyce! So glad you are rested.

We are trying to decide if we want to go to the Christmas Eve service at our church tonight or tomorrow. We are leaning toward tomorrow as we are thinking it might be less crowded. I think all the folks with little ones will go tonight.

Today is delivering goodies to our neighbors, making gingerbread houses with my kids, and working on a painting.

Hope you all have a blessed day!

How do I end these streaks? 200 days of 5 or more vegetables; 355 days to log in and spin; and I think one about exercise......
So, yes there are days I struggle to get in ONE more vegetable....is it time to just let it go and start over?

Karri--Hope you leg feels better soon.

I love when God sends us special things like butterflies to remember our loved ones. My mom liked butterflies and hummingbirds. Just days before she passed she told me she hoped to paint rainbows and sunsets when she got to heaven as she was an artist. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a beautiful sunrise/sunset right at a time when I needed God's comfort the most. He is so good!

I can't relate about cleaning out a parents house, I lived on the other side of the states from my Mom, so my brother and sister cleaned out my Mom's apartment. She had covered the walls with butterfly pictures of every kind. My sister found in a journal about how the butterflies represent the cycle of life and rebirth to her. I think of my Mom every time I see a butterfly now. emoticon

I had a leg cramp the other night, so bad my leg is still sore. I took a day off and am now going to try to work out again today!

Joyce I wish I lived closer to give you a real hug. emoticon Cleaning out a parent's house is never easy. I can relate to your story about the bathroom. I think my dad had collected every sample size bottle of lotion, soap, etc from every hotel he stayed in for 70+ years! It was unbelievable! I didn't find $100 though. emoticon

Because of your story, I have to share my buried treasure story. Hopefully it will give you a smile. emoticon As my sister and I cleaned out my dad's house we were overwhelmed with all the accumulations too. But some of mom's jewelry was missing so we were being extra careful with what we threw away. I'll never forget the day in the basement when we got excited as we found a brown paper bag. I opened the bag to find.......drum roll please.....what seemed like a million packs of soy sauce and duck sauce from Chinese take out! emoticon We still laugh about the brown bag inheritance!

Joyce, I'm so sorry you are having such a difficult time. I pray that things get easier for you. I was halfway across the world when my Mom passed and didn't get to help clean out where she was living, I wish I'd been able to so I could have those memories, my siblings ended up tossing most of it and keeping the rest.

Up EARLY this morning and hoping I can get a work out in. Wednesday is my therapy day so I don't normally get up early enough to work out, but I think I'm going to change that, I don't need to skip a whole day of working out.

Hope you ladies are all doing well!

I will soon write a whole blog ...have moved Dad & Step Mother in their 90s into assisted living and am trying to get the house into shape to sell.
They never threw away anything. But also 'hid' stuff.

Yesterday took the trashbag into bathroom to gather partly used soap and shampoo, cleaning out under the sink came across an envelope...almost tossed it... but opened to find a Birthday Card AND $100 Bill emoticon One Hundred Dollar Bill.....under the bathroom sink.

So almost threw it out. Why??? That kind of stuff has left me an emotional wreck working in that house.

Tina my group at church is starting a study on Ruth this Sunday. I love this group of ladies, they help to bring me out of my shell.

I loved Priscilla Shirer in War Room. She did a fabulous job! Has she acted before? I've heard her speak at a Women of Faith conference. She is great!

So glad to hear from you Joyce! I'm happy that things are starting to slow down for you.

I am doing a Bible study at church called "Breathe" by Priscilla Shirer. It's not your traditional study - it's mostly about the concept of taking Sabbath rest and just being able to breathe. We get so overloaded with so many things. It's just what I need right now.

Anyone else doing any Bible studies?

Thanks for prayers and encouragement. Dad & Dot are sleeping in their Assisted Living apartment now. We still have the house to deal with but the intense pressure is off.

I will slowly be working my way back into the SparkPeople social life!

So how have ya'll been while I've been gone?? Any good news? Any new prayer requests?

emoticon I will be tracking but no discussion threads for next 6 weeks....Dad's 'assessment' is August 18 and then they will have 30 days to get moved into assisted living 300 miles away.
I will take off 60 hours from work as well as every week-end trying to help them go through everything in a 2 level house with 20 year accumulation ....they need to downsize into a 1 bedroom apartment....Lord, help us...!

Hello friends!

Tina---You are one busy momma! I am jealous of your kids not going back until the 25th. We go back too early!

Joyce--- emoticon and prayers for you as you go through this difficult time.

Karri---Yay on the NSV and the jury duty too!

I hope everyone else is doing well. I survived my first day with students yesterday. I only had 11 out of 16 students show up, so it was a small class. It means more will probably show up Monday so it's kind of like having 2 "first" days as we start again on Monday. I've been trying to get caught up on laundry and all the other things I let slide during my first week back at work. I was able to get in 2 walks with the dog, make a menu for next week, and go to Walmart while everyone else in my small town was there! emoticon But overall a beautiful sunny day here and a nice chance to breathe after last week's busyness. I am looking forward to church tomorrow as our pastor started a new and interesting series last Sunday.

Hugs and blessings friends! emoticon

ASOBFALLS, bless your heart, what a hard decision to make. I'll be praying for you and your family.

I don't have to do jury duty! What a relief that is!

DH got the DVD player working again and I managed to do my workout DVD for all but 7 minutes of it. I've not been able to do that much for a while! Yay for a NSV!

Hello Ladies!!

Karri - any news on jury duty? I'll be praying that it works out for the best for you.

Not much going on here, just normal busyness. Catie has 2 more swim lessons (Fri mornings 9:30-10) and all the kids have 2 more golf lessons (Tues 11:30-1) Soccer started for Carter this week and for Catie it's next week. His first game is Aug 22., last game is Oct 11. I think I've actually been handling all the busyness pretty well, a little anxiety but not too bad.

Hubby's work (Firestone Country club) is hosting the golf tournament this week so he's been extremely busy (at work by 4 am, home after 10 pm) but it's going well. Crazyness! The fact of him not being here normally causes me high anxiety, but the kids have been relatively
good so that helps. emoticon It's only those super long hours for this week, the rest of tournament prep and tear down time is 12 hour days.

School starts Aug 25 and I have just about everything bought: supplies, clothes, shoes. Now I just need to sort and organize the supplies, but that's about it. It feels good to get things done. I like crossing things off my to-do list. emoticon

Well, i just wanted to check in and I hope to hear from some of you! Have a great weekend!! emoticon

Mama Judy thanks so much! I'm doing better I think, but have a very hard time going places I've never been or don't remember.

LITTLEGUYSMOM1 Good for you! I know kinda how you feel, my husband is signing our oldest up for soccer this year (youngest is adamant that she does not want to) And I'm so worried about the logistics of it. I don't drive at night so that puts DH driving quite a bit.

I got a summons for jury duty and I'm so anxious about it! I only have a general idea of where the courthouse is, and no idea where I would park. The idea of being in the courthouse makes me dizzy with anxiety. I'm calling today to see if my psych doc will write a note for me so that I don't have to go. I wonder if a note from my therapist would do? My psych doc is so hard to get in contact with!

It makes my heart smile to see how you all encourage each other!

Joyce - lifting Lee up in prayer!

Karri - so happy that you were able to get behind the wheel again and make the drive. I'll be praying for continued confidence and that God will make it easier for you each time.

I do have a praise. Last month I was filled with anxiety about signing Carter and Catie up for soccer. Carter is easy since he has practice 2 nights and games Sat morning plus we can request Mon-Wed or Tue-Thu for practices. (we chose Tue-Thu so the kids could still make it to church on Wed nights) And the games/practices are all on the same field. Catie on the other hand is older and her age travels to other fields. We got the text today from their new coaches and they both have practice Tue-Thu 5:30 at the same complex, just a field away from each other. She will still travel for games, but hubby should be able to help out and I always have my MIL to help too. This is a huge relief for me. I get so anxious about the logistics of being in 2 places at once, trying to be everywhere for all my kids. It was definitely a God-thing to have them practice basically together. I am truly blessed and know He is watching over me.

Karri, I am so proud for you about driving. I can't imagine driving. Have not driven in about 11 years due to Minieres Disease which causes dizziness so I am afraid to drive. The last time the lines on the interstate seemed to move and that was the last time I drove. I wish I could drive and your are making such strides with it. I am happy for you and continue to pray that you'll better and better every time. I am also continuing to pray for you husband. God bless you both. Have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Mama Judy

ASOBFALLS I'll be praying for your hubby! Hope things go well at the doctors!

DH is doing much better! He may even go in to work tomorrow. Still waiting on the appointment with the specialist, but at least he is finally willing to go to one.

Thanks for the encouragement! I made the same drive again today to go to an appointment and did pretty good. The drive home was a little hairy, but I made it, and each time I make the drive, the next time is a little easier (or so I keep telling myself!).

emoticon Karri! Not only did you make the drive, but you made it twice! emoticon How is DH? Did he get to see a specialist? I hope DD had a great birthday!

How is everyone else? Must be busy as our chat has gotten quiet again.

Not much to report here. I am just trying to enjoy every single minute of this last week before I head back to work on Monday. I finally finished painting the tree with owls in DD's room. I actually took time to read a just for fun book today and float in the pool for a little bit. It felt really good to just relax.

So, I have anxiety about driving, and DH can't drive due to his back right now. So I suggest we go out to eat, meaning I have to drive. We went early to miss rush hour traffic. We get home, I let out a big sigh of relief, I did it!.... and I can't find my purse. So we had to go back into the rush hour traffic, back to the restaurant to get my purse. My nerves are shot by the time we get home, but we made it! Talk about nerve wracking! But I did okay during the drive, for the most part.

I had the salad. I was sorely tempted by the country fried steak, but I went in knowing I was going to get the salad, and DH talked me off the ledge of eating something I would regret. It really is a yummy salad.

Leisa that is great! I bet it felt awesome to not be stressed about the change emoticon

DH re-injured his back so I ended up having to drive back from my in-laws house over an hour away. I did pretty good I think, anxiety didn't get to me too bad. But DH is not doing well. Hopefully we can get in to see a spine specialist soon.

DD turns 9 tomorrow! Time sure has gone by fast!

Happy Saturday friends!

I hope everyone has had a super one.

Joyce--so glad that worked out. Those little bumps in the road can be frustrating and stressful.

I am a thankful momma tonight. emoticon My kids and I set out to picnic today. Because of crowds at one place we ended up changing plans. I was able to handle that change of plans without getting stressed out. We ended up at a beautiful state park that I remember going to as a child. We picnicked, hiked to the waterfall, and played in the creek. It was a beautiful day with a gentle breeze blowing. I was able to sit and reflect on God's beauty and be thankful for the day with my kids.

I am thankful for you gals too! emoticon Hugs and blessings! emoticon

I went in person to the Human Resources office and got the FMLA straightened out.
They were gracious and took care of it. Ahhhh.

Things are feeling back to normal for us...

Hello everyone! emoticon

Joyce--So glad to hear Lee is home.

MamaJudy--I'm glad you enjoyed the nice quiet house. I can relate to your grandson as I am sleeping later these days knowing that I go back to school in less than two weeks too.

I have been spending my days between trying to get stuff done on my summer to do list and just enjoying the time at home with my kids. I have really enjoyed the time I've had to focus on a Bible study or two. God has been doing some amazing healing spiritually and physically this summer. I want to keep my eyes focused on Him as I get ready for the busy back to school time.

My DS has completed his first semester in college and comes home tomorrow! emoticon

Sending you all hugs and blessings! emoticon

Today I am all alone in the house with my grandson asleep. He better start getting up earlier because it's back to school in two weeks. But it is quiet in the house and that is nice.

Hubby overdid it with the Grandchildren and ended up with a bout of pneumonia in the hospital for 4 days. He is home now and, again, I hope for a return to 'Normal' life.

Back to regular Bible reading...and noting the Depression scale...
So happy to see this team talking again. emoticon

Happy Sunday indeed!

We had a great church service this morning - it was a preview of VBS which is this week and some awesome testimonies. The kids were with us in the sanctuary instead of their classes. BONUS - it was probably the most well behaved my kids have been in church. emoticon They get antsy when the adults kind of go on about stuff they don't quite understand yet. They had a segment on the middle school and high school summer projects which my oldest actually found interesting since he will start the middle school program in the fall.

'Inside Out' looks really cute - glad to hear it's worth seeing. So happy you had a great time Karri. And emoticon on the pounds down!! emoticon

I hope you all have a wonderful time of worship today!

Happy Sunday everyone!

Congratulations on the new grand-baby Joyce!! emoticon

The movie Inside Out was wonderful, though very emotional emoticon . I had several times during the movie teared up and was afraid my makeup had run all over the place (I don't wear much so it didn't, whew!) Even DH loved it, and it explains emotions so well to kids!

Your right SUNFLOWERGAL40 slow and steady wins the race! emoticon My goal is actually for 1 pound a week. I know that is slow, but it's better than the zero I was doing before! I lost 3 pounds total this week, I'm ecstatic! emoticon Plus all the water weight/bloating is gone from surgery, so that is 8 pounds gone! emoticon (I'm so glad it't gone, I was afraid it was going to stick around! Gaining that much weight from the surgery was quite an unhappy surprise!)

emoticon

But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. ~Psalms 59-16
