I hope you are all having a nice long weekend.

About mom...prayer does change things.

Last night I was reading my posts back to January and your comments. Your comments made me get misty eyed.  I appreciate your concern for me and mom. And your prayers.

Mom is doing a lot better than she was. Honestly, I thought back then that she would be gone soon. Now she is eating more and her attitude has changed. Also she has gained weight. She is thinking better and I think sleeping more.

I had to limit my time there. You remember I was there every day a few hours for lunch and a few hours for dinner.  And occasionally in the middle of the night when she called scared to be alone. That really left little time for me to sleep or take care of my husband let alone myself.

So now I just go there at dinner for an hour or so. She is ok with this. And we have a prayer before I go and she sleeps. Sometimes I have not been able to go one night maybe two in a row. She does ok then too. 

Her sore is better..not open anymore. But it still hurts her and she is uncomfortable but she deals with it better now. Also, finally, they got the eye doctor to see her and she is getting new glasses. Hopefully this will encourage her to get back to the things she likes...reading and working puzzles. And maybe even watching some TV. :)

On this Memorial Day may we remember our servicemen and women through the decades who gave their all for us.  Those who survived without whom we wouldn't be here. And our family members who have passed. And what we have because of them. :)

Take care my friends. God Bless you all.

Hi there...I can't believe we have finally moved.  We are living in a nice apartment complex for age 55 and older.  I have never considered myself a senior and still don't. I wonder if that means I'm in denial... :)

The place is great.  It sits back away from the street nestled in the trees. Pine trees, birch, aspen. Little birds, frogs and squirrels. Its beautifully landscaped. Bushes of colorful flowers. Pet friendly. Clean inside and out. Unlike our last place...but I won't go there.

The neighbors are great. We have met lots of nice people here. :) There are lots of fun things to do. Watch movies in a little theatre. Play pool, bingo, cards. There is a knitting group that sells their items for money that goes to charity.  And a bible study group. I have join them the past few weeks. :)

A lot of interesting things have happened since we've been here. I have post titles for these little stories. Now here comes the teaser.....Birdies Froggies and A Burping Toilet....Bird Poop and Caterpillars....Topsy Turvy (starring Princess Downy)...Trains...The Treasure Chest....The Hair in the Macaroni and Cheese (Eww gross)...Caterpillar Crossing.

If you are still there and haven't been grossed out by some of those come back for a visit. 

I sure have missed all of you. To those of you who have commented on my few and far between posts...I appreciate you so much. Thank you. I pray for you all each night and for those who you have requested special prayers for. I hope everyone is doing well. :)

Please leave a comment or email me and let me  know how you are doing ok? It will make my day. :)

Take care and God Bless.
