Hair today  May 20th , 2009

My hubby Rich in the middle, with his niece Jayne on left
and his sister Rhonda on the right

This is one of the best presents EVER
My friend sent them to me.. 3 nests  (the one with the big
eggs is a Hummingbird nest)  NO nests or eggs were
taken from the trees.  Mother Nature deposited them
on the ground.

The lilacs bloomed, the scent is heady and now they
are on the way out.  WAAH   see ya next year dear

The grandsons came to visit.
Above is Cole (7)  & Joe (8) 

Second pic is Caleb , Cole's brother(6)

I was sorry to see Danny Gokey get eliminated from 
American Idol.  Tonight it's either Chris Allen or
Adam Lambert.  With Danny gone, I voted for Chris
We shall see.

About Me

I just finished reading  The Middle Place
have begun  New Moon

Rich and I watched  Fireproof
& I am on day two of  Love Dare

I feel good, get tired but I am able to garden.
My tiredness is from the pain in my body
I think.  I have pain constantly, but I just keep 
going.  My surgery hurts, my ribs and spine
and my right arm.  Just battle scars ..smiles

Race for the Cure

Thanks to all of you who donated to Komen for the Cure.
Our race here in Peoria IL is May 9th.

I believe God has a plan for each of us &
I know I am proof of miracles .  Give it to God.

Matthew 17:20 says, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you. 

Mark 9:23 says everything is possible for him who believes. 

Mark 10:27 says that all things are possible for God.
