I am so sorry for being so absent!! Please forgive me!
The boys have kept me so very busy with Basketball... and Wrestling.
Ken has a cold.... the boys have the sniffles and are trying hard not to really get sick! Patrick refuses to be sick.. he has Perfect attendance in school and has since 1st grade. I've been making sure they drink lots of water and taking EmerganC (Vit C) So far... what could be a bad cold that could knock them down.. has just been an annoyance! Thank you God!!!
There has been some family issues going about and its starting to take its tole on me. Because of the emotional drama... its affecting me physically.
I love you so much! I am so proud of you... and I know you have times that you are scared... but I want you to know... I believe God has many more years He needs you here! You have a gift of love through your crocheting and knitting that spreads Gods love to all who come in contact with you! He needs you to touch lives... He knows that through you many will come to find Him.
Thank you for hangin' in there with this blog. I'm sorry I haven't been around. I love you!
I too am thankful for you and Uncle Lou. You love me no matter what! Even when I'm a poppy head and don't post like I should on my blogs! :)
Keep up the good work on your eating habits! It will pay off! One pound at a time!
And hang on to your faith... One prayer at a time!
I have a vision of you and Jesus. You're sitting in your chair knitting.... Jesus is sitting there on the floor in front of you.... unwinding a knot in the yarn your working with .... so that you can keep knitting. The two of you are talking and laughing ... enjoying each others company while you create a gift for someone.
Miss Mel.......... you sweetheart you!
Good for you on your weight loss................ I know there are bumps in road sometimes... but the key is to not get stuck on them.... keep going and get over the bump ... moving on to the next bump. :)
You're doing great!
I haven't lost another ounce... I think its due to the stress I've been under. Not coming here and getting love and support isn't helping either! Shame on me!
I am so sorry to hear of your friend Jan's loss! Prayers said for her!!! Bless her heart!!!
Okay.... off I go... I need to post a dishcloth pattern on my other blog. I've been slacking a bit there too. :(
you all have a Fabulous Friday... and a Wonderful Weekend!
I'm finishing up my breakfast bar right now... sipping my coffee ... and will get another bottle of water here soon!
hugs.....love & blessings

So, how is everyone else doing???
I have some sad news to share; one of my friends lost her son on Friday last week. He was only 30 years old. If you wouldn't mind sending some positive thoughts and prayers her way, that would be wonderful! Her name is Jan, and her son's name is/was Spencer. Thanks everyone!

Since it is Thursday today, I will post some things I am thankful for, as well...
Let's see - I'm thankful for the weather. It may seem silly, but here in our little neck of the woods, we haven't had it too bad this winter. This past week was our first really notable snowstorm, and we still only got maybe 10 inches all together. I'm happy with that amount, don't like to be greedy, so we really don't need any more! We did have a snow day yesterday - but I wasn't feeling well most of the day so I didn't get to take advantage of having everyone home. :( Oh, well - at least the house still runs fairly smoothly even when "Mom" is down! Hey - that sounds like something else to be thankful for! A self-sufficient family! LOL Then, there is my son proposing to his long-time girlfriend... it's crazy, really - both of them are seventeen, Juniors in high school, William has signed up with the Army National Guard, his girlfriend is also trying to get in, and he proposed the other day! I asked him if he's comfortable with the path his life is on, wanting to make sure he didn't feel pressured into doing something he wasn't ready for - his response? "Feels pretty good to me, Mom!" So I just say que sera sera... they are planning a May 1, 2011 wedding (which is before graduation) and a wedding reception/open house combo for after graduation. Can we say "non traditional"??? LOL They do seem good together, they tend to play to each others' strengths and cover each others' weaknesses, so I think they make a great team. That's just my opinion, though. God might have something else in mind for them - only He knows that for sure! I'm not sure how many things that is, I've lost count... which is something else I'm thankful for! Having enough things that I'm thankful for that I've lost count!!!
I sure hope everyone else is doing well... I'm out of here for now!

I sure hope your headache lets up soon, Tammy! Just tell it to go away in Jesus' name - it works for a friend of mine, she was battling migraines for quite some time, and that's what she does now - she says it works every time! I'll be keeping you in my thoughts & prayers!!
Til next time...
Wow....... I do apologize for missing so much lately......... I'm tending to one heck of a headache! :(
Well.......... weight loss report for me today is '0' .... but on a good note........ weight gain is also '0'
