Daughter and a 5K

I am so proud of my daughter for participating in a 5K with her co-workers for the simple reason of wanting to be healthier.....

She inspires me as I walk with my walker to go to the bathroom many, many times a day (which can seem like a 5K) instead of driving my powerchair....

But exercising sure does make me feel better!

My Sore Thumb

net image

On a lighter note.....Since I am a self proclaimed hypochondriac ......

my thumb became numb one evening.......oh dear, my mind immediately thinks MS.......I cannot lose anymore feeling in my right hand to MS!

After an hour of worrying and fretting?......I look at my thumb to see it is red and swollen and itching....Yay!  It has to be a bug bite and not the MS.

Whew! No one has ever been so happy to have a bug bite!......but the hypochondriac in me said, what if it is that West Nile thing?  

Fortunately, I could laugh it off and it was back to normal in a couple of days.

Finding Old Photos

I felt like I found a treasure when I discovered an old envelope stuffed with old my Dads house this past weekend.

The above photo was taken at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary....when lots  of family and friends had come to celebrate with them.

I Love seeing old photos!  It lets me see a glimpse of the past.

Going Back Home

When we were driving along this road....Tears came to my eyes  since all I could think of was the last time I on this road.  

I was remembering that in July I was following Dads hearse in a funeral procession.... and my son was driving my car in his dress blues Marine uniform (and now he is in Afghanistan)....

these sad days come along......but it was a beautiful day to ride to the mountains with my hubs!  And I got to spend Sunday with my daughter also!!

My Son Deploys to Afghanistan

Jacob and Kayla (baby)

I love this photo that was taken when my son and his wife were here in July....they were able to come home for my Dads funeral.

I was so happy to see them even though the circumstances were not happy. 

However, while he was here for a couple of weeks.....

the Marines called to tell him that he had orders to deploy to they rushed back to his base in California to prepare for deployment.....such as sending his pregnant wife across the country to live with her mom, etc, etc.

Jacob will miss the birth of his first born child but he does have Skype.

I know this is real tough for my son.....but now I can realize even more how the families of our deployed military are affected also......tremendously!

Cancer Hits My Cousin

Pam and her granddaughter Maria Rose

When my cousin Pam was told she had cancer......needless to say it was a shock to her and our family. 

and then they said it was a rare aggressive type of cancer......which makes it even more scary.

The doctors are sending her to the Mayo Clinic in Florida.

Please pray for Pam as we hunker down in our family knowing God is in control and "this too shall pass".
