How Thankful I Am!

First, let me say thank you for all of the sweet comments and all of the prayers and thoughts going up for John and I.  He continues to amaze me and we are having some very precious time together.
So far, the last two days have been spent with the dear Hospice people.  Monday, sweet Bev was here to go over the process with us and within a few hours, oxygen, breathing machines, some of his meds, etc. were already here at the house.  They are a very fine tuned and well run organization,
Today, his nurse - Carrie - came and she was just as sweet as Bev was.  They are such caring and personal people.
 She will come twice a week unless we need her more.
His team is comprised of a nurse, an aide, a pastor and a doctor.  The doctor is our family doctor.
I just want to again thank you all for your love and support.  I am so grateful to God that you all have been there with me thru this and it has all been so positive.
I am trying to sew a little along, but it's been kinda crazy moving furniture, etc. around for all of the necessities.  But, sewing is really calming for me.
Thank you again and enjoy this lovely Fall!

It's All So Hard To Believe.....

It is so hard to believe that Fall is here and the trees are gradually changing!
It is so hard to believe that this sonogram was taken over a year ago and.....
that these two precious babies will be one year old this coming Sunday!  How time flies!
It's hard to believe that my crocheted potholder wreath appeared in Romantic Homes this month.  (More on that later).
It's hard to believe that John had been in the hospital for a week and Tuesday, they came in and told us that we might as well go home and be comfortable because there was nothing else they could do for him.
It's hard to believe that on Monday, Hospice will be coming to the house to start helping take care of him.
It's all just so hard to believe.
But, God is still good and will see us thru all of this.  The doctors and nurses have all been just fantastic and we are so grateful to them for their love and care.
I will be posting when I can.  I can sew at home while he is resting, so that's what I will be doing a lot of.
Thank you for your many prayers!
It's all just so hard to believe.

Fall Is Definitely Here In Oklahoma!

The days are warm and the mornings are cool.  I think Fall is really here.  Hopefully, the trees will be beautiful this year because of the not-so-hot summer and we've had our fair share of rain.  We still need more but we've been very lucky to receive what we have.
Laynee told me it was time to put out the Halloween décor.  I don't do a lot of that but since she has started to preschool, she is very aware of the holidays, months, seasons, etc.  So, here goes.
First, I put out her little chair.
She loves this chair.
And it's cute on the front porch.
Next, add the Halloween pillows to the bench on the front porch.
Combined with the pumpkins and autumn blooms I showed you last week, I think I am done.
We have been missing but John has been in and out of the hospital the last couple of weeks.  His incision keeps filling up with fluid and they have to drain it.  Friday, they did surgery and put in a semi-permanent drain for a couple of weeks.   So, we're counting on that working for him.
Have a great Sunday!

If You Had Three Wishes, What Would You Wish For?

Do you remember "I Dream of Jeannie"?
The sitcom starring Barbara Eden as a 2,000 year old genie and Larry Hagman (Captain Tony Nelson) as an astronaut who becomes her master.
They eventually marry.  The show aired from September 1965 to May 1970 running 5 seasons.
Do you ever wonder if you found a genie lamp what you would do with it?  Suppose you found one and rubbed it and a genie appeared - what three wishes would you wish for?  Would you wish for riches, health, peace or a ride on a magic carpet?
Incidentally, Captain Nelson's first wish was for her to speak English!!
Think about it.
