There are times...

There are times, when reality hits...there are bumps in the slip and fall...and the world seems to be against you.  Then, people you love and respect find themselves in positions that they never thought they would be in...and you wish and you pray that there is something you can do to ease their pain.  So where do we go, what do we do?  Those tough times, unimaginable times that we find ourselves or loved ones in...what can we do?  Really?  How can we help?  We can lift them up in prayer, we can beg and plead with God for an ease to their suffering, as we suffer with them.  There is so much pain in the world, yet we are given glimpses of joy.  Oh that we could hold on to those glimpses of joy and never forget them or let them go.  How easy it is to be thrown in that pit...and digging out of it can be a impossible task.  Dare we say the devil is at his work, putting us in that we can't feel the touch and warmth of our Father...  So we can't share the love He offers, the forgiveness He gives?  I can only hope and pray that my dear friends and loved ones that are going through tough times, all of them, know that I cry for them, I pray for them, I rejoice for them.  I long to put my arms around them and say I love you and things will get better, or How great is our God to have pulled you through?  May He always pull us through, may we always trust in Him to pull us through.  May we rejoice in His strength and His everlasting Love...and at the end of the day, lay down knowing that He holds us in the palm of His hand.
Hey you out there...I love you, I'm praying for you and I am sending you the biggest hug and blessing that I can muster..
Love ya,

Anybody Home?

It's been a long time since I've visited my have been busy, I havn't done much needle work, or spinning, but I did pick up my needles for Whibsib in April and I'm so glad I did. After I got home I finished up my Chianti shawl I love it. I took it to Ft. Davis for Harrison's graduation but it wasn't quite cool enough to use it. We had a lovely time in Ft. Davis, so proud of Harrison... We stayed at Stone Village, we love that place, with the Market next door. Friday night was graduation followed by a lovely party at Tammy and James' house. It was a beautiful night.
We are so proud of
Harrison, and the rest of the weekend was a blast!  So nice to spend time with family and friends.
This las weekend I spent in D'Hanis celebrating Judith's birthday.  Camile put this "surprise" together and darned if it didn't work...she was surprised!  We met at Bill and Rosa's in D'hanis for dinner and had a lot of laughs and good food, we also listened to some great music by Ronnie Mason and a song as we left sung by Tony Hackebeil for Judith's birthday...The weekend was great, the food and company was great, couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

The kids are now in summer athletic camps and my dear mom is helping me get them to and fro...thanks're the best...until next time
