Last night, Sam was sitting in the recliner....I looked at Sam and had to do a double-take...."Sam what is that?!" He looked and me and said "What?"

I don't know why or even how I noticed it...but he had this real thin - light fuzz above his lip!

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. When did this happen? He was 4 years old yesterday with curls.

He didn't even notice it....but a few minutes later...I caught him stretching and looking in the mirror and rubbing above his lip.

For this alone I will need therapy.

This week Sam is supposed to go visit his dad. I know it is important for him to spend time with him - I don't begrudge that. I normally enjoy the break - but this time I just don't want him to go - I have no peace about it. Please be in prayer.

I must admit - I miss teaching children's choir. I pray God opens that door again one day. But Realistically I know I don't have time. Mom is my ministry right now. But I miss it so! I love music.

I heard a child singing behind me in church today...and thought...there is some talent! Sweet little girl too. Real shy. I teach her in children's church.

I am blessed to have many good friends. DC is like a sister, but I also have a new friend, who is become so much like a sister - I can call, email or text my feelings to her just as I can DC and feel comfortable and not judged - does that even make sense? My new friend is CL. I need to get my two sisters together soon! They will love each other.

Still praying for the miracle....I know it is in all God's timing. Utter Dependence and Obedience is what He wants from me.

Have a good week everyone.
It has been a real rough week for mom. I hate Alzheimer's - to have two parents that have suffered from is hard..I am sure harder for them....but I still hate it.

The other night - Mom wanted to spend the night...I went and picked her up. She forgot her pajama pants - so I loaned her a pair of Tori's. My mom is real skinny....but she looked so funny in the hot pink money pj pants her pink flowered night gown. We had a good laugh....she danced around the house.

She thinks every day is Sunday...except for when it is Sunday...then she thinks it is Tuesday.

We went to lunch yesterday - she ate a Hamburger Steak with Gravy and baked potato plus a salad...she really enjoyed it. Then we went to the store.

She came over again today....we went to the store again. Man that woman goes through the groceries.

Everyday mom needs to be told what day it is.

Everyday she wants BBQ and ice cream.

Sign out

It is still hot hot hot.

Still praying for that financial miracle. I know God has a plan.

Please continue to pray...we still need that financial miracle.

Though I must share...God is providing every day in the neatest ways. He is so Good!.
IT IS HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Bracelet for 37 Years.......

On Saturday evening after going to a movie, Steve, Sam and I went to the replica of The Vietnam Wall. It was in Memphis for just three days....I am so glad we went.

We had the pleasure of meeting and talking with several veterans.

We approached the wall (I am proud to say my son took his hat off when he reached them memorial without being told!) - and just to see all those names. Most of them boys....probably not long from shaving and getting their license. Important to someone...loved by someone. Along the wall you would see memorials - gifts that people left, rocks, flowers, hats, pictures, letters...there was one that got to me. It was written by a wife...she wrote the following...."I have worn your bracelet for 37 years, I will continue to wear it until you are home or until we meet in heaven."

Her husband missing in action...I am trying to imagine what she has gone through and faced. I picture her as a young bride...maybe with a baby....watching as a Chaplain approached her door.
Not knowing...has to be terrible...worse than knowing.
