Good Bye 2009

Can you believe 2009 is almost over? It's been quite the year, hasn't it?

I have lots to tell you about. Christmas, job loss, anonymous gifts, treasures, blessings, updates, etc. But, tonight won't be the night. I have an awful headache tonight. Dwight and I went to the store in hopes of finding a "cure" for the headache that won't just knock me out cold for the night. After some research, I'm sniffing Peppermint oil. It helps a little, but I must admit that I'm contemplating taking the real drugs soon.

Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day ... better in terms of how I'm feeling ... today was actually a gorgeous day ... 75 degrees with just a slight breeze. Anyway ... assuming I feel better tomorrow, I'll be sure to post an update on all the above stuff. So much to share with you all. But, the most important message for tonight is:

Happy New Year! I hope this new year will bring much happiness, good health, wealth, and pure joy to each of you and yours. Talk to you next year!

Visit to the Park

Today was a beautiful day in San Antonio! I took 4 of the kids to the park and we played for a while.Johnathon buried David in the rocks and Johnathon overcame his fear of climbing the curved ladder. If you look closely, you can see him at the top of the ladder in the picture below.It was a beautiful afternoon!

Treatment #4

I'm off to treatments in just a few minutes. I'm already feeling a bit sick to my stomach and dreading the IV. I hope they get it on the first poke today.

The good news today is that we are completely out of the old house. We've turned over the keys and it is finished. It's nice to have at least one thing completely off our plate. Now to get settled in here, find a new job, get Ryan up to 40 oz each day, and kick this Cancer to the curb.

A man died...

A man died on Christmas day. A man who did very bad things in his life. Unfortunately, I was not his only victim. He hurt many people in his life. Last night as I laid in bed contemplating this man's death, I wondered if he had died alone. I wondered if there is even one person on this earth who wishes that he were still here. Is there even one who is longing to see this man again? I then began to wonder what his reception on the other side was like? I know at least one lady who is so pure and Christlike that I suspect she met and embraced him, as any mother would her child, even a wayward child. I then began to think about how the Father might feel at the son's return. This man, even with all the horrific things he did in his life, is a child of my Heavenly Father. I believe in a loving Heavenly Father, a father who wants all of His children to succeed. How disappointed He must have felt at the horrible things this man did. What might he have done with his life, if only he had made other choices? Who would his victims have become?

Yesterday I was really, really sick. It's been a long time since I've been that sick. I went to bed Christmas evening around 11, woke up sick around 1 am and didn't come out of my room again until Sunday mid-day.
