Happy Birthday Steve :)
This week we celebrated another sweet year.
Steve's sister, her husband and Steve's sister-in-law
I baked a cake and ordered pizza.
Steve said that he was not in the mood for a party.
So, we called it a birthday lunch . . .
and he was okay with that :)
He is not doing well,
and it took me several tries before I could get a smile.
Our last two weeks have been filled with
Now that we are all signed up
he will be getting two scheduled nurse visits a week.
He has been on a Wendy burgers kick and
malted milks from a local drive through.
I want him to have whatever brings him pleasure.
So we drive for one or the other and sometimes
both almost every afternoon.
Me, I hate wasting money and I don't really like
fast food, but i've been eating the leftovers
and fitting myself with unneeded crap.
Are any of you like that ?
I'm so unsettled and I use food for comfort . . .
it never works, but I do it anyway.
I have nervous energy and would love to burn
it off working in the yard and getting some needed
spring jobs done,
but I don't want to leave him.
Every minute counts :)
Enough about that . . .
this lovely note and small purse size note pad
handmade by Marilyn of
Pink Paper Cottage
arrived in the mail this week.
Thank you Marilyn.
If you are into paper crafts,
Marilyn has many wonderful ideas
to share with you on her blog.
She is certainly a paper artist :)
My quilting is slowing down as Steve needs more help,
but I have reached the boarder
and should soon be ready to add the binding.
Well, that's our lives at the moment.
They are hard, but Jesus is walking beside us.
He is our strength and our comfort.
I need a sign on the frig that says
"you won't find comfort in here . . .
go to the true source with praise and thanksgiving"
I know the truth in this . . . it's an area where
I need discipline.
God bless you all.
Your blogging sister,
