Thanks guys for your prayers. They mean more than you know. The doctors told my brother-in-law today that they would be moving my sister-in-law to hospice on Friday. They said she has an infection, running a fever and her kidneys are beginning to fail. Only God knows what is in store in the days ahead; but I do know he is in control of all things and that he does love us. Thanks again for your prayers.

What a difficult decision! My father-in-law had hospice before his death and what a blessing for my mother-in-law! I will pray for you and your family in this difficult time.

I will remember your family, brother-in-life and his wife in prayer. How sad and it is so hard on your brother-in-law. God will take care of him and give him mercy, that only God can....

My family needs your prayers. Especially my brother-in-law. His wife has had brain cancer for the last year and a half. She has been in physical therapy the last month to hopefully regain her strength in her legs. He was told today that she is not going to get any better and that she only has a couple of months. He is now faced with the difficult task of deciding what to do next. He know he can't bring her home, she needs constant skilled nursing care. They are advising his to contact hospice. Please pray for him as they make this difficult decision. Thanks in advance. emoticon

Praying for you that God will give you confidence as you go to the social situation. I know that God has given me courage to do things I never dreamed I could do. He has always given me the strength to take that first step forward and will do that for you as well. I pray that you have a wonderful time and that you feel the presence of The Lord and the peace that only He can give you.

I just read the 10 steps to getting started on the wellness page and realized I have several issues to work on before I can realistically expect to lose weight. One is that my weight loss will not "magically" make me a better person or one who has friends and has a positive outlook on life. I was raised in a family who is now called dysfunctional-we had few friends and I never learned social skills. My DH and I spend each night home alone-he laying on the couch watching old westerns and me on the computer playing games and now reading through this website. Our minister's wife asked me to coffee some Saturday so we can get acquainted since they are new here and part of me would love to meet with her, yet I'm scared to death to actually do it. The crazy thing is, I'm not totally sure what I'm so afraid of. That I'll do or say something stupid and she won't like me? I've never been a people person yet at times I wish I could be. I know I'm in a rut, but sometimes it's more comfortable here hating the familiar than getting up and moving into the unknown. Please pray God will give me the confidence to move or else force me to hate where I am so much I have to move! emoticon
