About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Biopsy Report

Well, the biopsy came back positive for cancer cells. Which the Doctor told us would happen. It is just hard hearing it and seeing it written. Before that, there was a very small chance it was something else. So we move on to step 2. Begin chemo asap. We have an appt at the Cancer Center in Rome next Friday but the Doctor doesn't want to wait that long. So next week we will begin the process of shrinking the mass. Mike has ups and downs. I wish I could take his place.
This is an excerpt from "Jesus Calling" yesterday. We are clinging to this promise.
"On days when your plans are thwarted, be on the lookout for Me! I may be doing something important in your life, something quite different from what you expected. (You can say that again) Don't try to figure out what is happening. Simply trust Me and thank Me in advance for the good that will come out of it all. I know the plans I have for you, and they are good."

Please continue to pray for Mike. Your prayers are lifting him up and sustaining him during this difficult time.
