I took the kids for their Wednesday evening teen meeting at church, and the youth leader that has energized all these kids announce that he has to move back home to KY. They're all heartbroken, and I'm disappointed. He had really gotten the kids revved up for church functions again. Hopefully, we can get another youth leader like him.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Hope your eye feels better, my friend. Take care!!

My mom was so nervous and she cried as they wheeled her off to surgery then I started to cry! (Not in front of her). Just glad that all went better than anticipated and I was so dang exhausted last night, you know, one of those "been stressed for days, everything worked out well then collapse exhaustion"! I slept like a rock.

While in the waiting room a Southern Living Christmas magazine was sitting there. That was a nice surprise. Also I ran into a friend in the waiting room that I have not seen in over 20 years! She was waiting on a friend who was having surgery and it sure helped pass the time away quickly catching up on so much!

I actually came on here last night from my cell phone but it was the first time I visited the site from a smart phone and just having a little trouble navigating the site. I will figure it out, just didn't have time due to being busy at the hospital last night so I just email Made to pass word along.

I scanned through all the post quickly because I got to go take care of my parent's cats, give one of them medication and get to the hospital.

Thanks to everyone here for good thoughts and prayers!
Glad her surgery went well!!
Praying for a smooth recovery!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be a typical spring day here in central Indy with a high of 73 and a chance of storms. I don't have much planned for today. I just need to get some stuff done around the apartment. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today, I'm off on a road trip. Baseball and softball team play in the state tourney, so I'm heading that way to show a little support. Gonna be a late night, but it'll be ok.

See ya during the ballgame, I will be catching up on tappatalk! Later, gang!

Stay safe out there on the roads and good luck to the teams!!!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day


Still praying for your dad.
