Thanks for Checking on Me.....

Better late than never..I guess. It has been almost an entire week since I last posted and I thought I'd simply wait until next week for a new post - but, I just can't help myself. I miss my blogging friends and I miss "keeping updated"! A bit back, I started a part-time job...just a few hours a week and just to keep me busy. It has been awhile since I have been working and I must say the paychecks are fun:) They support my HomeGoods habit...but those few hours a week have really thrown me for a loop as far as getting into a new routine - and my time on the computer as really taken a back seat. I am still working on the details of a new routine - I THRIVE on schedule - but I totally indeed to be blogging regularly. I have enjoyed visiting my friends this evening and catching up:)

I noticed a couple friends have running lists of blessings building on their sidebars for the month of November.....and I had planned to do something similar. I know I'm behind but I think I will catch up and join in. So much to be grateful for...and the perfect month to purpose our hearts to do so. (Now, let's see if I can get it added to the sidebar....)

Happy first week of November, friends. Hope your "thankful month" is off to a beautiful beginning:)

  1. Hello, dear one. I know I've neglected you; I've been totally shameful in the blogging world as of late. There are so many things going on that my "cyber world" had to, as you say, take a back seat. You went for almost a week without blogging; I don't think I've updated my main blog since July. I do post once or twice a week on my photo blog, but I'm NOT doing well with the blogging thing.
    I wanted to ask you to pray for a family that I met at the Lighthouse Family Retreat back in 2008. They were volunteers, but the previous year, they were a retreat family as their son recovered from a bone marrow transplant from leukemia. They are amazing... TOTALLY. I remember a lot of our retreat families from that year, but not as many of the volunteers; we were too busy to make too many bonds. But Mark and Julie TOOK the time; they knew how important life really is after watching their Andrew go through BMT. I was totally heartbroken yesterday to hear that back in May, just two months shy of his 5 YEAR anniversary (the one where you send up balloons and get to use the word "Cured"), he was diagnosed with a brain stem glioma. Ugh, ugh and triple, screaming, flamingly angry UGH! I hate cancer, and pediatric cancer stinks! If you have a chance, please visit www.caringbridge.org/visit/andrewsmall and leave them some love. They have hit a particularly rocky spot in this road, and I know they appreciate all of the prayers that come their way.
    Love you, friend....

  2. I was wondering if everything was okay. Glad to hear it is.

    I left off Sundays on my list so that is why a day was missing.

    So far it is going good with the cleaning. We'll see if I can keep it up...

  3. I have been slacking off with my blogging also--and I don't have a new job for a reason!;) Some computer problems and trying to get some projects done around the house.

    But I love my blogging friends- nothing like them!:) So I've got to get back with it and be more regular.

    Amen to your previous post about voting. I had seen that picture before and it just floored me.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs,
    Linda

  9. We lost our son, Joshua, in November 2003. He was in a car accident. He was driving but the road was wet with rain, he hydroplaned over an embankment and the car landed bottom side up on his side. He was air cared to UC but never came to. We had to say goodbye a short 12 hours later. I certainly admire your faith in God. I believe in God, but I am so angry at him even after 7 years. HOpefully I can regain my faith and lack of fear of God through your blog.

    Your Tyler looks so cute. Tell me about him.

    take care-
