My Grandson

Dear Friends I come to you once again to ask for your prayers!
My darling grandson Tyler {16} 
was diagnosed with non hodgkins lymphoma {stage 4}
He spent 9 days in the hospital, 
He is home now surrounded by the love of his family.
The Chemo treatments are kicking his butt!
My heart is breaking...he is so sick and I feel so helpless.
Our family has had its share of tradgedies this year,
with the loss of my nephew and my mum, our emotions are on over load!
If you could please take a moment and ask God to help Tyler,
my family and I would be ever so greatful!
Thank you dear friends

                                          Wishing you a blessed day

Waiting for Jesus

Dear friends
My heart is heavy today!
Last night mum told us she is ready to go to heaven, she wants to die!
Such hard words to hear coming from the person who gave birth to me, whom is always my strength and inspiration, someone I love so much!
Mum has always been so strong and lived a very simple life, loved everyone and accepted all for their good and never seen the bad in anyone.
I thanked her for being a wonderful mum and an awesome grandma to my children!
I asked her to come home with me so I can take care of her and be by her side when Jesus comes to take her home. 
She said she didn't want to burden anyone or us have bad memories!
Even now she is still taking care of us.
Maybe its selfish of me but all I want is for her to come home with me, lay by her side and hold her hand as we wait for Jesus to come and take her home.
Maybe she will change her mind.....
We are meeting with the Hospice team today!
Thank you dear friends for your prayers.
Luv you all so much

My Sweet Momma

         Hello sweet dear friends, 
I can't believe it has been so long since my last post!
 Summer was crazy hectic to say the least!!
We had buried hubbys' aunt, and 2 dear friends!
Also my nephew Kyle lost his battle with leukemia.
Kyle {19} was diagnosed in February and lost his battle in July.
He was so strong and such an inspiration to all of us!
{Mum and Me in June}
August 10th my mum {Pat} was admitted into the hospital,
She had a heart attack, then her kidneys were failing, she has 3 blockages in her heart and a valve needs to be replaced, but she is too weak for any surgurys at this time.
She has been thru so much, fluid filled her lungs, she had 2 blood clots in her arms, internal bleeding {which was an ulcer} her oxygen, blood pressure, and hemaglobins were fluxuating! 
Now she is slipping into depression! 
45 days later she is still there laying in bed staring at the ceiling. Girls I am so broken hearted, I feel so bad that there is nothing I can do! I wish I could help her, I wish I could get her out of bed and take her for a walk outside to see the leaves changing colors and smell the fresh air! 
 I wish I wish I wish!
Mum is afraid to be alone and wants only my dear husband to stay with her at night.
No one else will do, she feels safe and comfortable with him being there.
Bless her heart.
My brother stays occasionally to give hubby a break but he is still mourning his sons death so it is very hard for him to sit and watch helplessly too!

Hubby loves mum as if she were his own mother and she loves him just as much!
They are so cute together, he feeds her and makes sure she has anything she could possibly need! I know she is in good hands!
He is such a blessing!
I don't mean to spill all this on your laps 
but many of you have emailed and asked if I was ok!
I am ok.....
hanging on to Gods hand and praying for his strength and healing.
Mum is 79 and says she has lived a good life and ready to go home but we are praying she has enough strength to make it a few more years!
Thank you all so very much for being such dear friends, 
your warm thoughts and prayers for my mum are greatly appreciated!
Much Love,

Happy White Wednesday

Mmmmmm it smells so good!

so dainty and attractive to the fairies

I wish you could smell these

It's a pitty party

I know you really don't want to hear about all this but, it just may make you feel better.
Recap of my past three weeks .....
Went up to the old house to turn on all utilities for the home inspection {the buyers want done}
The well pump was froze and cracked.
We had that replaced { a whopping $300}
Turned the water on....
No pressure... we had to get the air outta the lines...
****the frustration is building*****
Ok all set.....the water should be making its way to sinks, tubs and toilets
sloooooowly.....very slowly.. waiting waiting waiting
go upstairs....no water yet....go to basement
flooded... water everywhere
> insert a few swear words < and screams for a mop and rags
Got that cleaned up
Go upstairs.. water is pouring from the ceilings
>more swear words and more frustration<
Cleaned that all up
Go upstairs {2nd story} 
the master bathroom is flooded
>throws hands in air and screams< 
>oh and more swear words even louder<
We got that cleaned up.
Hubby and I are NOT very happy at this point
I call the company that came out and winterized the house
They gave me the run around
I called the realtor to get him on the ball to get this fixed since the house was left in his hands
A lil over 3 weeks later and I am still waiting for them to send someone out to fix the water leaks and damage.
I call them everyday and get the run around, you never speak to the same person each time you call.
Incompitent people and companys tick me off 
{what about honesty, taking responsibility, your reputation, & customer service????}
hubby hit a deer {Thank God he is ok and there was not much damage to his truck}
Then his transmission went out on his truck.
The gas line on my car split somehow
{at $4.oo a gallon there were more swear words heard from afar}
mind you we are not a swearing family ** really we are not  **
My desk top has a virus that I just can't think about right now 
My nephew has lukemia so I went to spend the day with him at the hospital 
and it tore my heart out to see all of those children with cancer.
Someone whom I thought was a very dear friend stopped talking to me {that broke my heart!}
Our daughter came home with broken glasses so off to the eye doctor for new glasses.
This week we have a funeral to attend {murder/suicide} a guy we went to school with, we were not very close to him but our daughter is friends with his niece. 
I am on stress over load and have been having a pitty party here.    
Ok Doll so how is reading all of this going to make me feel better you ask......
Just when you think you have problems...you hear someone elses' and yours aren't so bad!
I hope you have a blessed day dear friend

yay spring

Today in Michigan we had wonderful weather
Our first taste of SPRING

I opened the doors and windows to let fresh air in,
ahhhhhhhhh  it smells so good
I walked barefoot thru the grass
{euu, don't look at my toes that are in desperate need of a pedicure}

The greening of the grass is so exciting.
I even started raking so that I can fertilize soon!

I spied the tulip bulbs I planted in the fall...popping their heads up
 I am excited to watch them grow and bloom. 
{This will be our first full spring in our new old home}

I loved sitting on the porch visiting with friends & neighbors!
So many people were out and about today
{We are all de-hybernating}

Up Date

{this is my precious mum and nieces' son}
Mum has been doing better, she had a pace maker put in today!
Because her heart was slowing down in the night as she slept!
I pray this solves that issue.
Her kidneys are failing and its just a matter of time before she has to go on dialysis. 
I pray her kidneys stay strong for as long as they can!
Thank you sweet friends or your warm thoughts and prayers!
Warm hugs,

Tending to my mum

I have not had time to blog lately because my mum has been in the hospital, 
she came home for a few days but is back in as of last night!
Plus my computer is down and I don't have the time to take it in to get fixed!
Good news we sold the house up north! Here
That is a big relief.... two house payments and maintaining two homes is hard!
I hope life is good for you!
Missing you

Chair Love

It is Mosaic Monday at The Little Red House
I have a love affair with chairs.... I just can't pass up one that is unique or orphaned.
Hubby doesn't get it... but I tell him "they are like lost children,
they need someone to love them and give them a good home!"
Our carriage house has several... many many many... chairs or all shapes and sizes
{just ask hubby, he started hanging them on the walls to make room!}
See the beautiful chairs above {black, yellow, pink, orange, green, blue}
I would love to have those for lounging around the pool!
SCREAM.....   Super fun don't you think!
What objects do you have a love affair with?
