I guess I am posting once a week.  It has been a crazy week and posting pictures or even taking pictures is the last thing on my mind.

School is almost out for summer for my girl.  
She has one or two things left to do this next week. But, all her outside classes are complete.  Yay!  
Softball is over! Yay! We can have a resemblance of a normal life now.  For a second anyway.  

My boy came home yesterday.  School is out for him.  Yay!  We made it!  It was rough in the beginning but we, I mean "I' adjusted.  Glad to have him home for the summer. 

It has been a hot one these last two days.  I am officially adjusted to the weather here, so when it bares any resemblance of the desert weather I lived in for years, I know it is hot.  And it has been.  

But the biggest, saddest news is of my sweet friend Trish.  She is a young mom of 4 and has breast cancer.  It has now spread to several locations in her body.  I went out to see her this week. (she lives in my hometown). It was good to see her and she is so beautiful but... but is all I can say.  I am praying for a miracle.  Please join me in praying for her.  They need clarity of mind to know the next step for treatment.  Also, pray that Jesus would do a miracle in her life.  
He really already has done many miracles.  She is a sold out believer and is Heaven bound.  Praise Jesus!!  She is amazingly praising Jesus through this entire process.  
The one thing that really spoke to me this week when I was out there was the importance of telling people now how much they mean to you.  
My friend was overwhelmed with love from her church family and kept saying "I can't believe how much I am loved!"  Let's remember to tell the people in our lives how much we love them.

And with that I am off....
counting my blessings one by one...

730. My family.
731. My friends.
732. My health.
733. The body of Christ in action.
734. Witnessing transformed lives.
735. Jesus.....



  1. Praying for her every day. Love her!
    We're not done with baseball yet. Playoffs begin week after next. But soccer is over. yay! Because of our vacation, we're schooling til the middle of June. Definitely NOT a yay.

  2. I am so ready for summer to be here... things are slowly ending here as we prepare to send Mr. C off. So much to do!

    Enjoy your time with your son, and praying for your friend Trish.
