Some happenings of late...

...we will be heading to Madison again on Friday. Mike is thinking he will need to be admitted before Christmas. We shall see.

I was very fortunate to have Monday off of work. Almost took the whole day off too. What a pleasant change. I got so much done around the house. Tree is up....things are getting a little cleaner. Life is good. Today was the first time since I can't remember that I didn't bring anything home from work with me...AND...I left at 4:30. Wow, I'm turning over a new leaf. It feels awesome.

Here are some happenings from around here:

Love these men!

This young man got two !st place ribbons at the piano recital.
Ah, yes they are hanging from his ears.


This little guy is always full of wonder. He planted his apple seeds in the back yard.....waiting for spring.

On this side of heaven . . .

 . . . All human relationships will disappoint us at some moment. We are human. We aren't perfect. We forgive and forget.

It can be very painful. We pray for comfort and we move on. I pull people a lot of slack.

Sometimes it's just painful. And the pain doesn't seem to end.

We could use your prayers. Hard times. Big decisions. God is always right there. Pointing out the way. No Christian is perfect ............the only difference with us is that we are forgiven. No matter how big or small the sin. Forgiven.
