Hiya. Just a bit of catching up here.
Isabella is now a two year old. Yes, she is stereotypically two. However, she started early with the "terrible twos" behavior so I will prayerfully anticipate her leaving this stage in her life early as well. The Girl called me while I was in the food store asking, "Aren’t you going to wish your granddaughter a happy birthday?" Hmmm…I’d already given her gifts, she is not yet very verbal and The Girl had just gotten home from work. Hello? Anybody home? When she put the phone up to Bells’ ear Bells didn’t respond because she was "more into her pizza." Maybe that answered my dear daughter’s question better than any explanation I could have given her. To Bells, it was just another day with extra sugar and pizza in it.
My f-i-l, Sal, is recuperating well. That guy is a walking miracle. The doctors tell us to get ouselves ready for the end and he gets well! Same thing happened after his open-heart surgery several years ago. The surgeon (the same one who performed Bill Clinton’s heart surgery) didn’t think Sal would make it through the night. Surprise, surprise. It is my understanding that it takes most people two years to recuperate from that surgery. It took Sal nine months. Miraculous.
I pray that our southern states get the rain they so desperately need. We are soggy around these here parts but, go 100 miles south and the land is parched.
For praying for Nancy, I thank you and ask that you continue. We are awaiting the result of her scans to see how advanced her cancer is. As usual, she is going around helping people and continuing to work. I am so very blessed to have the friends I do.
One more prayer request – Himself is a realtor. As most of you know, the housing market took a terrible downswing this past year and it is anticipated it will get worse until at least this summer. Please keep us in your prayers as we could lose our home if more business doesn’t come our way. No matter what, we will be fine. However, I would really like to keep our little piece of real estate!
Bless you, dear people. gail
