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.

Heading to Emory

Here is the latest on Mr. Mike Blackwell. The surgeon in Atlanta would not ok starting radiation without seeing Mike. So we are off to Atlanta tomorrow. (Lord willing) He will have another MRI tomorrow and then an appointment with the surgeon at Emory. He is supposed to be a top surgeon in his field. There is a slight glitch with the insurance but we are praying hard it will all be worked out before we arrive for his appointment.
Mike has been going outside for the past few days for a little while. He has overdone it but it has been good emotionally for him to work on his "projects".
We have had  some meals brought by some awesome angels of mercy. Another angel is coming to take the kids to and from school. We are getting so spoiled.
We continue to covet your prayers for Mike. Please pray specifically for:
Insurance approval
Some answers or a treatment plan from the surgeon
Total healing for mind spirit and body
Words cannot express how much I love this man!!


  1. Prayer up for insurance approval and GOD give the Dr at Emory the knowledge to know exactly what and how to get started so Mike can get on the road to recovery!!!! If you need any help with anything let us know!! If I can help with the kids please let me know I will do whatever is needed to help you all out!!! We love you all!!!

  2. Prayers for insurance to cover and praise for a top surgeon (Mike deserves only the best) and for the surgeon to have God's guidance on a treatment plan. Pray for Mike to continue holding strong to his faith and enjoy the sunshine and his projects. I'm sure those projects and fresh air bring some normalcy. Please let us know if we can help in any way. We love ya'll very much!
