Our Pets!

This is a picture of Molly! Yes, when she was a puppy she chewed on our chairs. Kelly bought the stuff you put on there so puppies won't do this but, she loved the taste of it! Didn't stop her!!



When I saw Kelly had posted our pets on her Facebook page I wanted these for my blog! These are the most recent pictures of our pets!

Zeke is in Kelly's dresser drawer while trying to take a nap. Kelly thought he was so cute she started taking pictures and he woke up!
Myrtle is our youngest pet kitty and she is adorable! She loves to play with Zeke but he acts like Garfield and doesn't always want to play!!

A new Header!! Thanks Karen!

What a nice surprise when I got on the computer and came over to my blog!!! Karen has been on and made me a new header and fixed my Alphabet poem! Thank you so much!!
This week is the shower for my granddaughter Sarah so we are busy with getting ready to go to this and take down all the shower goodies to Bill's church. Kelly has ordered a neat cake for it and I will have her take the camera so for sure we can post some pictures of this!!
I have to stop and call and thank Karen for fixing my blog!!!!

I was over at Barbara H. blog last night and she is having a giveaway for her third Blogiversary! Go on over and say Hello and congrats: and enter for the neatest gifts! One is a copy of By Searching by Isobel Kuhn. I read this when I was in my 20's and just loved it. My daughter Carrie read it too and she said it was one of the reasons she is a missionary. So when I saw this I was so excited. I never hear anyone talking about her books nowadays so this is great! The other gift is a CD.

Saturday Afternoon

It is Saturday afternoon. My daughter's visit is over and she has gone back to Mexico. We had such a good time and a good visit. I was blue all day Wednesday but I am fine now.
Karen and Kelly are camping with their church group this weekend. No one wanted to drive a long distance to get to the lake so they are close to home at a lake! With a tent and the whole outdoorsy stuff!! Kelly got wet when it rained last night! She said everything has dried out and no big deal. I think part of the group are out on a pontoon boat this afternoon.
I have been camping when I was younger, but I like to camp at the Best Western rather then out doors!! I like having a picnic and being out side but not sleeping out there!

I got this in an E-mail this week. You may have already seen this but I will share it for anyone who hasn't received this E-mail.....

The Holy Alphabet
Whoever came up with this one must have had some Divine guidance!

Although things are not perfect

Because of trial or pain
Continue in thanksgiving
Do not begin to blame
Even when the times are hard
Fierce winds are bound to blow
God is forever able
Hold on to what you know
Imagine life without His love
Joy would cease to be
Keep thanking Him for all the things
Love imparts to thee
Move out of "Camp Complaining"
No weapon that is known
On earth can yield the power
Praise can do alone
Quit looking at the future
Redeem the time at hand
Start every day with worship
To "thank" is a command
Until we see Him coming
Victorious in the sky
We'll run the race with gratitude
Xalting God most high
Yes, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but...
Zion waits in glory...where none are ever sad!

"I AM Too blessed to be stressed!"

The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything.

Posting Before Friday!!!


I know, don't faint! A new post before Friday! I had a lovely weekend and just had to share some of the highlights!!!
Starting out on Friday at noon my daughter Carrie came by with lunch from Sonic! Nancy was very very happy! But she drank way to much Route 44 peach tea and by evening was way hi- per!! With a captial H.

That evening the girls put the two wheelchairs in the two cars and away we went.
Karen wanted to see something at a store over at Zona Rosa shopping mall! It is a good ways from where I live. When we got there, this mall has a out of doors open courtyard for tons of people to hold concerts.
They were having one, that evening with the "Elders" a Irish group. They were so much fun! The girls parked me and took Nancy and off they went while I enjoyed the music.

On Sunday afternoon Carrie and I went to a reception for our former pharmacist Maurice Branum. He celebrated his 80Th birthday in March. Mr.Branum opened the drug store in 1954 the same year my folks moved over here.
He owned the store until 1992.
I think the whole town turned out to say "Hello" to him.

His wife was killed in a car accident in 1964. My Mother stayed with their girls for a couple of years and helped take care of them. Carrie and I sure enjoyed saying "Hi" to so many people we know. There was so much food you just would not believe it! It was like a big Fourth of July town picnic. I told Carrie I didn't get any cake which I am not suppose to have any way and she said,"That's the only thing you didn't have!!!

Mr. Branum is one of the most kind, helpful,and gentle person you would ever want to know.
When I was a teenager I would go there after school for a coke or ice cream. It was the local hangout for the school kids.

Here it is Friday again and I haven't posted for a week!! I sure am enjoying my daughter Carrie's visit.

One night this week we went to "On the Border" Nancy was given a gift certificate on her Birthday. Thank you, Linda!! Nancy and I had a taco salad in the bowl you can eat! Yummy! We have been having a great time visiting and the time will go by way to fast!! She is out going to garage sales today looking for clothes for her grand kids.
I have the application for Nancy's to get her medicine she needs. Please pray that I will fill it out correctly.Thanks!

Hello on Friday!!!

Hello on a Friday Afternoon! Last Friday I clonked my hand against something and I thought at the time " Oh, I hope I didn't hurt it again!"By Saturday evening my hand was all swollen and hurting. I still enjoyed the Fourth and the fireworks!! By Monday my hand was still swollen so off to the Dr.'s office!

They did a ex-ray and it wasn't broken just full of arthritis which was stirred up when I hit it.

I am so excited we have two wonderful events coming up!! The first one, my missionary daughter who lives in Mexico is on her way up for a visit!! She hasn't been up here for a year! I can hardly wait to see her!! She stopped on her way up in San Antonio for a Joyce Myers conference. She has been looking forward to this for a long time. She said the first session was good!

The other event, is the event for this year!! My granddaughter Sarah will be getting married in August! Kelly is the Maid of Honor and she is hosting the shower at Sarah's Dad's church the last of July. She is hosting the Bachelorette Party, too! Kelly's friend Joan is making her beautiful mints for the shower! They are so pretty but wow, they taste good, too!!
I know I haven't been on for a while!! Wal-Mart pharmacy called me last week and said that the medicine that Nancy takes that really holds her lupus at bay,some thing had happened to the pricing. I called her insurance and her medicine had been reclassified and it now cost us $700.00 a month to pick it up at the store.!
Of course we can't afford this SO I have been working on getting this for her.
Medicare Part B doesn't pay for it either unless she has had a transplant. She hasn't.
But I called the Co that puts out this medicine and they took all my information and they called me yesterday and we found out she qualifies to apply!!
No, kidding we have to really jump through the hoops to get this but we are willing. So I am so happy to know we can apply and then we will pray she can gets this medicine she needs so much for free. I would love for you all to pray that Nancy will qualify for her medicine.
The Doctor called me late Sunday evening and called in another medicine for her but it isn't as effective as the one we need!! So, I have been on the phone to SS, Drug Co's. etc. this week!!

Almost The Fourth!!

Here it is two days before the Fourth of July! Tell me what you plan for your day. Do you go out of town or stay home and celebrate? We stay home.
When my Mother was alive we would go over and get her and bring her to our home for the Fourth. She just made the fourth so much fun because she would light a fire cracker and then not throw it for a couple of seconds yelling OH OH OH!!! Of course we were all screaming Mom/Grandma throw the firecracker!!!
She always made a Cherry pie and brought a batch of her oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies.
Nancy has always been scarred of the fireworks except of smoke bombs and sparklers! So from the time she was little she sat on my lap and many times I watched them from the window because she hated the noise so much. Now days she sits in the car at the park and watches them.
The Assembly of God church is sponsoring a city wide deal with a moon walk and booths and a big patriotic concert before the town shoots off the big fire works display!
