MerryBells, congratulations on becoming a great aunt!

HomeMakinGirl, still praying for your dad.

Made, I hope you feel 100% better soon!


Sorry if I missed any other news. I am so tired from not much sleep the last two nights so going to finish up a few things around the house, lay down and watch Deadliest Catch!
Hope and praying that everything goes well for you and your Mom. I'm sure she will be on the road to recovery in no time.

Congrats, that's wonderful news.

I know how your mom feels. I only stayed out of work for the swelling to go down. The first time, I drove myself to work with a knee-high cast on the left leg. The next time the surgery was on the right leg, so Hubby had to drive me to school. I, too, remained active and did not let it get me down. People were always telling me to slow down! Wishing you peaceful feelings, CAH. I am sure you are worrying about all of this, but it WILL get better!

I miss Louanne's prayers when she would say that she is touching the screen even as she prayed.

Praying for your son, Seawaters. Praying for his safety, and sending you comforting hugs too. Hope he finds something ASAP. I will say the rosary for him tonight before bed. God bless him & you.
