Many of you have shared in the journey of my long-time homecare patient Elizabeth. I first started caring for her at age 6 months.
She has a whole raft of congenital heart, skull and immune system defects. She came home from the NICU at five months on a ventilator with a tracheostomy tube...
Hubby out of the blue a couple weeks ago was contacted through LinkedIn by a recruiter. He decided to go for the interview, and, well, long story short, he starts the new job on Monday! Woo-hoo! This means we are getting a HUGE (like $1500+ a month) raise! Our tax refunds will pay off our...
My ds#2 had surgery in Aug and the bill was about 2x what I was told to expect. I got the INS statement yesterday and it said we only owe $$ dollars. They said that it was $$$$ over and above allowed for the procedure and that we would not be billed for that amount. They have the correct...
I'm not sure which is the right forum for this topic. We have an exchange student from China, a 17-yo male. He is awesome. He's been absolutely no trouble, and he's really become part of the family.
For Thanksgiving, one of our former exchange students came to visit from Hong Kong, a 20 yo...
This past Sunday our pastor made a remark during his sermon that I am trying to do. He said to look for a blessing everyday.
Monday- despite the 100 degree weather my husband (a/c tech) came home at 4:30 and had a good day.
Tuesday - I had to pick my stepson up from his mom's (last week of...
When dh lost his job all of you said that it would turn out for the better. You guys were right. NOt only does he come home in a good mood everyday he will also be working a 4 day work week soon. We got his first paycheck today and WOW! He made in one week almost as much as he used to make in...
Just had a wonderful evening celebrating hubby's birthday. A couple of our kids came over and some of the grandkids. We all had a very nice time! Once again I mentioned that I needed some advice about a printer copier and my daughter-inlaw said she had one that I could have. Wow, what a week...
I do know when a blessing has come our way. I had gotten sick last weekend and ended up in the hospital. Anyway, with all the medical copays I had to put out for perscriptions, a perscription that ins wouldnt cover etc.ADD to that 2 extra bills this month too. We got paid on Friday the 13th and...
God fills our cup of life each day
With gifts that make us strong,
He hears the prayers within our hearts
And always rights each wrong.
God fills our cup of life each day
And brings us to His door
To shine His gift of perfect health
And fill our cups once more.
May the cup of God's...
May the warm winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your home,
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your moccasins
Make happy tracks
In many snows.
May the rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
...........A Cherokee Blessing
Today may we appreciate this food and remember those who are hungry. May we appreciate our family and friends and remember those who are alone. May we appreciate our health and remember those who are sick. May we appreciate the freedoms we have and remember those who suffer injustice and...
Good Morning Blessing
This morning when I awakened
And saw the sun above,
I softly said, "Good morning, Lord,
Bless everyone I love."
And right away I thought of you
And said a loving prayer,
That He would bless you specially,
And keep you free from care.
I thought of all the happiness
One of the elderly ladies called me this afternoon and asked if I wanted any beans. I said I'd love some even though I've already froze about 50 bags.
I went over to pick them and she also gave me a bunch of rhubarb and enough beets to probably make 8 pints of beet pickles. I just froze...
I'd never come across the term "blessed" in common language until I came to this board. Originally I took it to mean blessed in a religious context but lately I think it's used here in a non-secular context - meaning that good things will happen. It seems to have a few meanings, not all of...
I decided to go into Brandon today and visit a friend I hadn't seen for quite some time. I met her when I first moved to the country and we hit it off immediately. She owned a dollar store and sold quilting material in the store. She closed the store and move to the city.
A friend of ours just sent her son down with 2 large frozen Supreme DiGerno Pizzas for us. They don't eat pork and since these have sausage on them, she wanted to bless us with them. I just think that is so thoughful and sweet of her. Guess what we are having for dinner tonight?;)
I applied for a low income scholarship through the YMCA about a month ago. It is all based on income. After a couple of weeks of reviewing the paperwork I sent in they called and offered me a family membership for $90.00 a month for 6 months with a $75.00 registration fee.
I knew that was so...
Some good friends stopped by this afternoon to tell us that their neighbors were giving away free Walla Walla Sweet onions. These are the 2nds that the processing plants can't sell because, get this, the tops of the onions are not in the exact center of the onion!:confused: Why that would make...
