Heaven Bound

Update:  This post was written yesterday but couldn't get it posted until now.  11-6-08

What do I say?  I am drained.  What a busy several weeks we have had and as I write this, I am on a airplane heading for Houston.  For those that know over the last several months I have asked for prayer for Michael's mom Betty.  Yesterday, she went home to be with our Lord.  We have been blessed to have her as long as we did considering the diagnosis she was given in January.  She was in much pain toward the end and I am so glad that she isn't in pain any more.  Over the next several days, I know it will be a flurry of activity and not sure when I will get back to post.  I know we are due back home on Tuesday afternoon/early evening. I hope you will remember us and Michael's family in your prayers as we go through this. At the same time, I got a phone call last night telling me my aunt also passed away.   This is my dad's oldest sister, so please remember him and my family, cousins in the passing of their mother. I know as hard as it is to say goodbye to our loved ones, I know they are in a much better place. 

Over the last several weeks  I have had a time getting here to post. Seems like my life just keeps getting busier and busier with work and Tori's sports and personal issues with her. My work schedule has changed and it has drastically had a effect on my life.  There just isn't enough time in the day for me to get everything done and my computer time is really lacking.  My hope is soon things will get back to normal, but  with the holidays fast approaching and shopping to be done. 

We had a nice visit with my folks when they were here this past weekend.  We had a chance to get to Lancaster Pa.  It was simply a perfect day for shopping and wondering shops.  The whole time we were there my mom wante4d to me to pick out something for my upcoming birthday and I couldn't decided.   Needless to say I came home without anything.  She wasn't real happy with me .


Need to scoot for now as my power is getting low and don't want to lose this.  Be back as soon as I can.

Hugs to all,

I'm so sorry Cindy. You and your family will certainly be in my prayers. How comforting to know that she is with the Lord until you meet again.

Hi Cindy. Bless your heart. You've been thru so much haven't you. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You've been busy and the holidays are coming soon too. Sometimes it just seems like things will never slow down, but they will. Things will get better soon. Hang in there!! Hugs, Lisa
