GoodBye Memorable 2010

I say "where did the past year go"?  My 50th New Year has been momentous!  It is a new stage of life.

I do say Good-bye, embracing change sadly eagerly.  Of course 2010 events, are in my blog.

I am too blessed to be stressed.....I look forward to 2011 with anticipation!

Happy New Year!

Wheelchair Ice Skating

I had no intention of ice skating.  We were leaving our family Christmas at Oma's house, it was snowing for a while.

My daughter was walking in front of me, when hubs said "you better move, she will knock you down".  She did move fortunately.

I started down small incline slowly, carefully.  Soon I was gliding on ice,  into a parked Mustang (no damage).  It startled us all,  I eased my way to the van, just fine.

We drove home slowly, with no ice on the road.  We had a rare "White Christmas" for Atlanta. 

We can all drift, unintentionally, with our lives.  Be careful!

Beaming with Pride for My Daughter!

She graduated with honors from college!  I have an accountant as my little girl.   I smile when I say this since  she is a beautiful young woman.

I have said to her "take it easy" so much but she kept pushing herself.   She does have a work ethic that amazes all of us.

She worked part-time while going to college full time. She graduated with honors in December!

She dreamed of an internship after college with a famous large company.  She starts that job soon.

She will start grad school for her Master's Degree next year. 

We have had 2 parties of celebrations of my 2 kids in 2 weeks.   I  have a "good exhaustion".

I was challenged with MS but I did my best.....We all do our best when raising our children.

I do Love my children more than I can express!...below are a few pics of her study abroad adventure!

Wheelchair Rushing to The Mailbox

We got a letter from Boot Camp!  Ok, it was a form letter from my son but at least we have an address!

I wrote back asap, had to get the letter in the mail same day.  I want him to have a letter to read on Sunday.

I rushed out to the van speeding with my power chair.  Let out the lift then loaded up to get inside the van.

I raise the ramp into the van and help the door shut (it needs help).  I now climb into the drivers seat to drive with hand-controls to the mailbox (a long driveway).....

Whew, the mail had not come yet!

As I drive back to the house here goes the routine again.   I then climb back into my chair, holding on with a death grip constantly (I do not want to fall).......

Again I let the lift out to unload.  Then I raise it back up and shut the door of van. 

Now time to drive back into the warm house to do many other chores of life.

Just giving the boring details of a trip to the mailbox with a wheelchair.   I wanted to make sure my son has a letter (almost a Christmas story).

This is just a moment of the day and not for pity.  Just keepin it real, life with challenges.  

This is what any Mom would do for her son!  All would do this even if challenged!

Unique Christmas Trees

tree twirls therefore a blurry pic
This year my family put up this beautiful Christmas tree for me.

decorations are not important to me....
all the lights are nice to look at

Flashback to last year.   This plant was fine with me, really!

I rolled this plant across the room, 
added a few ornaments and 
voila, a tree! 

You can decorate anything...
it makes the place feel more festive.

Why Worry?

original post 12/6/10

I could not imagine this view even existed in the metro woods.  God could....I have been blessed to look at this view for 8 years now.

During Church as I was worrying about jobs, money, kids, dog hmm.... was listening to the sermon.

God helped me to realize.....we have lost jobs big deal to Him.

11. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12. They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

A Life Changing Christmas Card

Geraldine sent a Christmas card home to her family.  We had given the homeless cards to send to their families. 

After  mailing them,  her brother got in touch with our church. He inquired, how can I find my sister?

He quickly flew here to go with us to Atlanta.  He hoped to find her at the ministry house.

She was there as usual, her face lite up when he walked in.  She was happy to go home to her kids and family.

She also needed a friend to help her find her way home.

One real Christmas Card, changed a life.  Small actions can be life changing.
