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.

Mike is having a rough day today. He is in a lot of pain. We aren't sure how much is from the surgery and how much is normal. He doesn't want me to call the Dr. but I hate seeing him hurting and there is nothing I can do for him.I am praying of course that he has some comfort. He hates taking any medicine normally but we are existing only until the next pain pill is due.

I am so ashamed of myself for all the cancer commercials I have turned off, all the cancer ads I've skimmed over, all the cancer facebook posts I've ignored. I'm just being honest, it didn't apply to me,,,,,UNTIL NOW!

This is a roller coaster ride, for sure. Specific prayer request is for Mike's pain to subside. That is first and foremost. Blessings today include a visit from a dear friend and the offer of meals being provided for the whole week thanks to our Celebrate God Sunday School class. My word for the year is APPRECIATE (I will post about that later) and I am soooo appreciative of everything. We are so humbled by all of you. Please continue to pray for Mike. I am praying tomorrow's post will have better news.
