feathers

The girls did feathers at school. They were feathers made out of construction paper with sayings of what the girls were thankful for. Eme said she was thankful for her snails and White Cloud her cat. Ele had three. One was her Grandpa cause he fixed things for her, the second was for God helping her Mom through cancer (which I teared up about....how sweet and meant so much) then... the third which she just told me in bed with Eme on the other side of me is she was thankful for her Dada for protecting her. I of course asked what he protected her from, to which she points to Eme and says, "From her!" We have a lot to be thankful for....I know mine are obvious, but I'm also thankful for all of yall!

God Bless!

SAYING

Robert went to the Dr today, and he now has meds, that will allow him to not get bad off, and may or may not work, but if it doesn't then we'll try another one...pray for him, he'll start it this weekend. I got these three sayings today and I loved them. I had read one of them, but the other two were new to me and I really like them. The thing they all have in common is to thiink of someone else in your life....you only walk in your own shoes, not someone elses!
Have a great day yall!

pillow

I just asked Ele to think of a word and she said "pillow. I guess since we are sitting up in the bed, she came up with it. Pillow....well I have always said "piller" for pillow, which Robert has always teased me about, but I have always showed that southern pride and said it was ok to mispronounce it because of my twang. Is there anything in your life or childhood that makes you smile? Feel warm inside because it makes you feel special? God knows we are special even when we open our mouth! And he is with us when we insert a foot too!~

God Bless!

results

We got great results yesterday! Ele is hyperextending her joints and causing the aches and pains. When he said it and that she took after someone very flexible, I said I am double jointed, he said it's you! So we went in there for her being like Robert and came out that it was because she's like me! He said they'd send her to therapy once to show her how to do it right, an ophomoligst cause her eyes get red (we've always thought it was allergies, but they want to rule out Robert's thing) and he wants to see her every year because she has a 30% chance of having Robert's disease later on. Robert's eye specialist said that Robert was holding steady, so we would leave him alone! Your prayers worked miracles! Thank yall! Have a great weekend!

God Bless!

today

Today is going to be a crazy one! We have planned to work, pick up Ele and go to Vandy for appts the rest of the day. We will find out about Robert's eyes long term, and about Ele. Pray for miracles! On a lighter note. I came home with my prize yesterday.....I got my 32" flat panel TV! I won it at work for losing the most fat%....6.4%! I am now almost at the weight I was before I got sick (But slimmer cause I've been exercising). Ele and Eme were asking me about the TV, and I said you know how Momma lost weight in my booty and belly? They said yes, so I said well I won a TV for it at work. Eme gasps and jerks up my shirt and looks at my belly! I said, "It's not in my belly crazy! It's in the car!" Have a great day yall!

God Bless!

good one

Hope all of you have a good day. Keep smiling!

God Bless!

Heaven

How come you don't talk about Heaven? Is it because you're scared that if you talk about it someone you love or you will die? Don't you think I'm thinking it as I type? Ever since I was sick my idea and outlooks about Heaven have changed. I know it's because I attepted my place there and decided that those I love who have moved on are better off than I am. Once we accept how truly beautiful and blessed we are, once we say that we are worthy of God's grace and once heaven is known to us as somewhere we will meet our loved ones in again...it's a brighter place in our hearts. God said that we are his sons and daughters, and he is our Father in Heaven. We will see our lovedones again, have no tears, pains, or hurts......What a beautiful place!

God Bless!

LIVE

If you live today then it won't matter that it's a Monday. Living in the moment and in the minute, doesn't matter what the day is called. Have a great day yall!

God Bless!

weekend

How about this weekend we slow down, hold hard, and love a lot? Have a great one yall....and start today!

God Bless!

Latest

We got the results today on Ele's tests. Her ANA is positive, which means that she can have an autoimmune arthritic disease, or not. We won't know until she goes to the specialist next week. The way I look at it we are no different than we were yesterday. God is still watching over us as he was yesterday and everyday. Worrying about it will do no good, because it is in his hands, instead of worrying, I will pray everyday, every moment that I want to worry I will stop myself and say a prayer. It will be no different now, during, or after the Dr's appt, just as the results, because we will always want to worry about our children. I cannot do anything to change the results, nor anything to prepare for the appt, so I might as well do what I can, and that is pray.

God Bless!

update

Ele's X-Ray's came back that she does NOT have Robert's disease. We are waiting on the bloodwork. Robert's X-Ray's came back that he has arthritis in his neck and hip, but otherwise looked good. Keep praying...it's helping! God Bless Yall!

update

Ele and Robert had X-Ray's today. We should hear the results in the next couple of days. I found out today that my PET was negative, so once again I am cancer free. Friday we found out that Ele is also HLA-B27 positive, like Robert, but that does not mean that she also has a disease, just that she carries the gene. They want us to go to a Pediatric Rheumotoligist, and have one scheduled next week. We know miracles do happen. We just hope and pray that there's not a limit per family! Have a great day yall and live your life to it's fullest, don't wait for tomorrow~

God Bless!

brave

Ele is so brave! Today she had to get her blood drawn, and they douldn't get enough out of the one arm, so they were just going to get what they needed today, then if they needed to get more we'd have to come back. Instead though, Ele decided to have them take it out of the other arm, so that she wouldn't have to come back. I was so proud! Sometimes it is hard to do what you know you need to, but you know that if you suck it up you can dig deep within and pull through!

God Bless!

pepper skins

Pepper...Momma and Daddy's dog is rotten. Eme has helped make him so. He had a VERY hard time when Eme went to school, because all his life he always had her. Turns out they wrestle very hard, with Eme (much to my getting on to her) will body slam him by his hair and pounce on him. He takes it well, and dishes it out pretty good himself. Needless to say they are the closest. Lex is no longer scared of him, and all Ele really wants to do is take care of him. This weekend Ele said she was pottying and he ran in the bathroom (the door is usually shut because he carries rolls of toilet paper around), and jumped in the tub! Ele thought it was the funniest thing! Daddy had Eme call me and tell me what Pepper liked to chew on....she calls them "Cow Skins". Have a great day yall...remember to hold the ones you love.

God Bless!

laugh

Robert has Men's Health magazine's. He was talking about his desk and needing room when Ele said he needed to get rid of his magazine's. Robert said that he liked his magazine's. Ele says, "Yes, but they are inappropriate!" I thought we were gonna roll!

God Bless!
