Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends!!
I haven't been on forever I know! Nancy got very ill in Sept and was in the hospital for 15 days! She was in ICU for 7 of those days. She had 3 stents put in her heart. She had 90% blockage. She also had pneumonia and her lungs filled up and she had a very hard time breathing.
Carrie came home and helped us take care of her and I don't know what we would have done without her!!
Then on November 30th we had to take her back to the hospital with pneumonia. She was very ill again. But Praise God she is doing so much better!
I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!!

New Post!

When I read Sandy's comment today I realized I am so behind on my blogging!! Did you know she has a new blog and with a new name!!Here you go Ramblings of a middle-age goddess.

On Saturday it will be my daughter Carrie who is a missionary in Mexico birthday. It will also be my great-great son Marcelo 2nd birthday! Born on his grandma Carrie's Birthday! Happy Birthday! This month was also Sarah, John and Sofia, Birthday too!!

Marcelo is doing so much better after being so sick. He had a high fever and it went into convulsions and he ended up in the ER. But he is getting along fine now.
It is Summer at last, but I did enjoy the cool spring and didn't complain about the weather to much, just all the rain!!
Karen will be going to Hatti soon for a missions trip with some of her friends from church. She knows it will be really hot down there!!
Since I wrote a post the last time Bill has improved and is feeling so much better and back to work part time.Thanks for your prayers!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Karen Nancy Sarah and Kelly at the shower

Happy Mother's Day to all my bloggy friends! I hope each one of you enjoy your day on Sunday.

One week ago tonight my son Bill was Life Flighted to a hospital in Kansas City from the hospital down in Clinton,MO. Bill was having a heart attack. Good news! He is now home and improving each day! We are so thankful he is with us!! He has to watch his diet and exercise, etc.

On Sunday while he was in the hospital we were all down at his church in the afternoon for his daughter, my grand daughter 's baby shower. What a joy this was to be able to celebrate her event not having a funeral for Bill that afternoon!!! Glory to God!

Sarah received so many lovely baby gifts! Sarah and Kyle are having a baby boy! This will make me a Great Grandma for the 6th time!!

Nancy is feeling better,so pleased for that! I am working on getting my kidneys disease under control. The report on them was not good. Please add me to your prayer list! Thanks so much!

As you can see Karen has lost a lot of weight! She has now lost 150 pounds! So proud of her.Kelly has lost 75. It helps me too with my no salt diet! I miss salt more then sugar!!!

We were able to go to Church today! Nancy saw this tee shirt, and spent her money on it and just put it on over her top she had on!! What a joy to be able to get to go to church today!! We were so welcomed by all of Karen and Kelly friends.
Loved the music and the sermon! We went out to eat after church. Came home and took a nap!! The weather here in western Missouri has finally turned to Spring!!!

I have felt so close to her ever since I read her post about her parents. My brother and sister in-law had so many things just the same as Jane's Mother and Dad that I just ended up with tears running down my cheeks just trying to read the entire post.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here it is a few days before Valentine's Day! I haven't posted for a long time! If I had posted, it would have been about snow and cold or cold and snow!! I am so ready for spring!! I bet Melli and Daisy are snowed in for sure!! What a mess out there. I heard on the news it was snowing in Dallas, the weather man said they had 5 inches of snow!
Nancy and I finally got to get out and about and that was really great!
Our Ladies Bible Study teaches jokes that maybe we will finish up in June!! We are studying a wonderful book by Beth Moore with her video's! I have really enjoyed this study.
Both Nancy and me are doing, ok.

Finally warming up here!!

Here it the middle of January! We still have snow every where, although you can see the street. I have not been out of the house since the Saturday after New Years!! I think I am close to having cabin fever!! Our drive way is better so I think this week I will be able to get out and about!!!
We have had freezing fog every morning and the weather man said again tomorrow.
I think we are going to get to have Ladies Bible Study this Monday. It has been called off the last two weeks because of the snow and frigid temperatures. But it is much better with it in the 30's!
Well, this sounded like a weather report!!
Our Chiefs didn't do good at all this year but they are making changes so maybe it will get better next year!!
