A Little Bit of this and a Little bit of that!

1st things 1st! My mother is currently in the hospital with a pretty bad pneumonia! Could you please pray that this antibiotic she is on will heal her. She has been very weak for quite some time. She will be 80 in October so I am just a little concerned! Also pray for all of us to be able to surround her with love and support! That's about all I will say about that!

2nd things 2nd! Go over to Sting My Heart and wish Iris a Happy 3rd bloggy Birthday! She is having a great give-away too!

Now a little bit of what has gone on this weekend!
  • Saturday we go over to my mothers. Before leaving we put Champ outside (because frankly lately he has had issue that we are not happy with; leaving us little treasures down stairs!) So we leave and are gone for about 4 1/2 hours. As we are pulling in the driveway Champ is not in his normal perch on the couch. I say to Steve "we did put him inside didn't we?" That would be a big ole NO! The dog was waiting at the door for us and boy was he ticked! Also for those of you that know our dear sweet puppy, his neurosis, just got alot worse! He thinks we did it to punish him. How do you tell a dog that that was not the case!!!!
  • Sunday was a wonderful Church service. The beginning of it was very powerful! After that we went to Steve's side for Easter Lunch! We always have a little Easter Egg hunt for the kids, and they all did very well! Grandma and Grandpa also got the kids a Dutch Chocolate V (ya know for Vander Helm). So needless to say our kids had lots and lots of candy. Jeremiah not only ate a small bunny early, he also ate the whole chocolate V before leaving his aunts house! Can anyway say sugar buzz!!!!! Bekah also was just a little on the hyper side when I was putting her to bed!
  • Hey did I tell you that in July we are going to California! I am so excited! We will be going to Yosemite! I have gotten books from the library on this park! Wow, the pictures are beautiful! I'm sure in person they will be much more breathtaking! Please pray for Jeremiah too, he is really not looking forward to the plane ride!

Well that's about it! Have a great rest of your monday!

Will say a prayer for your mom.

I was wondering how your Mom was - she's in my prayers. I heard the Easter service was awesome - sorry I had to miss it. How exciting to plan that trip - I've heard it's beautiful!

I prayed for your mother. I'm sure that her condition must really be stressful for you. It sounds like you had a fun Easter as a family. The family trip to Yosemite sounds great. Your kids will have a good family trip memory to look back on. We always travel by van, because it's so expensive for all of us to fly. It's very stressful after all those hours in the car, but it makes for a fun adventure and a good memory.

Sweetie, I am lifting your dear mom up in my prayers. I am glad your family had a nice Easter. I love you.

Cheri said...

How fun. That will be a great trip. I bet once Jeremiah is on the plane he'll enjoy it.
Sounds like Champ just needs a little extra love and he will forgive you!

So sorry to hear about your mom. I know that is so hard on her body. And hard on you. As a fellow member of the Sandwich Generation, I can relate. Hang in there. I just prayed for her and for you.

Oh dear - I am so sorry to read about your mom. I hope she is doing much better by now and hopefully out of the hospital.

Thank you so much for sharing the give-away with your readers. I truly appreciate it.

Oh - California sounds great. Wouldn't mind to spend a couple days at the coast-line of Cali. I am sure you have a great time at the park.

Blessings to you and yours.
