Catching Up and Thanks
My first order of long over-due business is to thank Mary for this award. My tardiness doesn't mean I don't appreciate it more than I can say. I just seem to be having one of those "spells" where there aren't enough hours in my day to do all the things I both need and would like to get done. Thank you for thinking such kind thoughts of me Mary. It blesses and encourages my heart more than I can say.
I am meant to pass it on to ten others, but I can't think of one of the blogs I read that aren't worthy of this award. So to all my fellow bloggers - I pass on this award of Excellence and thank you for enriching my life with your amazing posts.
More thanks - for all of your kind words, prayers and support for Todd. He is so appreciative, as am I. You never fail to go above and beyond anything I could imagine. I pray that you will be blessed as you have blessed us.
A little bit of an update on my parents: The results of my Mom's ultra-sound show that she has gall stones. The doctor doesn't think they need to do anything about them just yet. We are so thankful it wasn't anything more serious than that. My Dad, however, isn't doing as well. The day after he visited the doctor and was told all his blood tests came back fine, he began having that numbness in his arm again. This time he also felt it in his face. So they have made an appoint for tomorrow afternoon with a heart specialist. I cannot imagine why noone has thought to check the arteries for blockages and am concerned that that is what it may very well be. They have always said his heart is just fine. So....we pray that all will be well. I will keep my blog updated as we find things out.
I am feeling so guilty when I check my bloglines and realize I just don't have time to read and leave comments the way I would like. I am trying to read as many posts as I can - but I haven't been able to leave comments every time. I always think I have this all settled in my life and then it seems to get out of control all over again. I just have to try the best I can to prioritize my life and unfortunately my time on the computer has to be limited. I wish I had about three more hours in my day.
We had another Open House for realtors here yesterday. Lots of people buzzing in and out. We've lowered our asking price and are praying that that will generate more interest. Isn't it funny how protective you feel of your home when strangers are giving it the once-over? I love this little house and want them to love it too!
My energetic husband is getting the bikes ready for our ride, so I must get out of my bathrobe and nightgown and put on proper attire. It's a beautiful, crisp clear day. Our weather can be so erratic. It was 92 degrees on monday and this morning we awoke to ice in the bird bath. It's already warming up though and should get into the sixties today. So....we're off to hit the road (not literally mind you!)
Thank you again for all you've done. You are a wonderful group of ladies - so dear to my heart. I thank God for you.
