nuts

Evidently the other day after school Daddy told Ele he had gotten her some packaged brownies to eat. Ele went and looked, but came back with something else. Daddy asked her why and she said they have nuts on them and she likes the kind with sprinkles, she doesn't like nuts. Daddy says she needs to try something new. The go back and forth till Eme speaks up and says that Ele doesn't like nuts. Daddy says, well I know, but you really don't know till you try them. Ele says, "Da, there's two things I don't like. Nuts and tryin somethin!" Uncle Jerry says that is just like my Daddy and it was so funny that Ele is the same way. Robert says that is because they are both Brackin's!

God Bless!

Your prayers are working! Lex has a sinus infection, but the Dr talked her into taking a shot, so she is feeling better, I am feeling better, and so are the other two girls! Now, if we can only stay better! Keep praying so much is going around that I am praying with our systems low we don't catch something else. Don't know much else, other than please pray for all of those who are sick. Hope yall have a great day!

God Bless!

sick and nasty

Lex has gotten worse, so April is taking her back to the Dr tomorrow. I think the worst of the virus is hitting her, but please pray for her.
Last night Eme spilled warm, not hot potato soup, on herself in the kitchen. While I was trying to take her PJ top off of her she lost her balance and did the three stoges wobble and landed in the soup. We were all trying not to laugh because it was so funny, and I got choked and had to run out of the house choking. When I ran back in she was up and standing with her arms out, so I got the rest of her clothes off, and carried her to the shower. Here's where her personality comes out. As we have discussed before Eme does not have a natural streak for cleanliness. She is standing in there with some potato pealings in the bottom of the shower and says, "Do I have to get another shower?" I say, "Yes, Eme. You have to get a shower and wash your hair" As I look at her with chunks of potato dangling in her hair, she th…

WEEKEND

Sorry yall! I thought I was getting better Friday, felt ruff Sat as the day progressed, worst Sun and yesterday. All three girls and I went to the Dr: All had a viral infection with Lex allergies, Ele fluid on her ears, Eme swollen nodes, and me Pleurisy. We all got meds and are on the up and up. BTW....Ele was 50 lbs, and Eme was 47 lbs!
Saturday was our big day though! Both girls did great Lex made lots of baskets and Ele made her first basket!!!!! Well she made 2 and came close on two. Please watch Ele's video....I caught her FIRST!!! If you listen (watch your sound, get ready to turn it down!) you can hear me of course, but listen to everybody else, they were SO proud of her, everybody was chearing, because she had tried so hard to get a basket. She was proud, but mainly because after that the other girls coach kept telling his players to watch her! Oh! and her glasses got broke during the game, we tried masking taping them, but they were crooked, but they are still under warra…

today

Well, was sick the past couple of days, still am, and now Robert is too. Good thing is he went to the Dr and came home with meds for me too. Please tell Lucas Happy Birthday, as it was today!
Please pray for Carol's dad, as he is not doing well. The Cuz sent me an email that made me LOL at work, almost spit on my monitor, and hurt my throat! Here's my favorite five from the title of "How to Maintain a healthy level of insanity", Have a great one yall!:
1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With Sunglasses on and point a Hair Dryer At Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.
4. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks . Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.
5. In the Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write ' For Marijuana.
11. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream 'I Won! I Won!'
12. When Leaving the Zoo, Start Running towards the Parking lot, Yelling 'Run For Your Lives! They're Loose!'

God Bless!

student

Last week Ele was Student of the Week for her class! Here's what she had on their website.....

Hobbies: Jumping on the trampoline
Favorite Color: Pink
Favorite Food: Chicken
Favorite Place: Grandma's house
Born in: Gallatin
Pets: 1 Dog, 9 Cats, and 4 Fish
Favorite Book: Junie B. Jones

Now she thought the teacher said favorite thing outside, she likes blue or green best, but for some reason said pink, said that chicken was the first meat she thought of, smiled when I asked her about Gege's, said she lost count on the cats (we only have 8 for the record), and confessed that the animals was before the fish died...BTW we only have one left....another floater DOA this morning. We laughed and said that we were proud of her getting student of the week!

Have a great day yall and everybody tell Holly Happy Birthday!

God Bless!

Live

Well, I'm posting really quick. Robert took us out to eat last night for his and I's 16th Anniversary of being together. Happy Valentine's Day everybody! And a BIG THANK YOU!!!
GOD BLESS YOU! and I don't know what else to say. You have said so many prayers for us, and tomorrow I will be 3. Yall don't know how much it means to us to have each of you in our lives! I heard this song just now (beautiful song!!!) and a few lines of the lyrics (Natalie Grant, Held) just jumped out at me, about anything you face in life....Never, ever give up.....You are NOT alone.....Those you love are there....God is there....We are all survivors.....

We're asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it's unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels,
when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We'd be held

God Bless!

taken care of

Eme got in trouble Monday at school. She got a sad face in her folder for playing instead of doing her work. I wrote a note to the teacher and Eme got in trouble. Tuesday afternoon, my Momma thought she'd be smart and ask Eme about it...."Eme, let me see your sad face in your folder." Eme replied, "That has been taken care of Gege." Momma says, "Did you get a sad face today?" To which Eme replied, "That is NOT going to happen again". Basically the note that I sent to the teacher! Smart baby! Oh! and when Robert heard about her getting in trouble he smiled and said, "Well we knew it was going to happen sooner or later!"



God Bless!

pray

Please pray for a young boy who is sick. He has just had his port installed and they are awaiting the plan of action for his cancer. Please also pray for all of those who are sick. There is a lot of people who are sick with the flu, and strep. May God's loving peace and healing powers be with them all. May his loving arms surround them, and may they find comfort in prayer. In praise and prayer. Amen.

God Bless!

children

Our children are beautiful. They grow up fast leaving us to wonder where or how they have become the little people we see before us today. They make us laugh and cry at the same time. They beg for the attention that they require and when you look in their eyes you see yourself. It makes you wonder how someone could ever not want one. I tell the girls all the time that there are kids who have less than them. I hope and pray they always are appreciative of what they have and respectful of others, wether they know the other child's (real) life or not. Kind of like when you think you know someone out in passing them, in the isle at Wal-Mart, at work, or even Church. You never truly know what they go thru until you walk in their shoes.

God Bless!

wow

Well, we had a busy time. On Thursday afternoon I was interviewed for the paper for being a survivor. On Thursday night I could not blog because Eme overflowed the toilet, so bad that Daddy had to dig up the line, dismantle the toilet, and we had to get a whole crap load of new towels to replace the ones we used to clean up the mess. The fish got their new condo tank, and the girls played one heck of a ball game. Don't know much else than thank you. Last Friday, three years ago, I began my high-dose chemo that killed me. Your prayers work, and God does listen. Don't forget, pray, and believe.....yes my Faith is real, and I am alive. So are you...so live!Thank yall!

God Bless!

sugar

Well folks, April is getting old. She turned 29 today! That's right pretty soon she is going to pass me! We all had homemade chicken and dumplings, and hot fudge cakes. We were hyped up on sugar like crazy. We got a tank also. Yep, a fish tank. April is going to take care of it. Momma said I must be gettin mellow, and Mana just died laughing and said I was a sucker because I bought a tank to save 4---32 cent fish! I did hear the girls talking though and Lex said you bury fish, to which Ele and Eme said loudly and at the same time, "Huh-uh! You throw tem out to da cats!"

God Bless!

lazy

Robert and Lex were talking and Lex was saying that her and her Momma lay around at her Granny's watching TV. Robert asks her , "Laying around, well where does that get ya?" As Lex shifts her neck from side to side she says, "Well not in trouble!" Don't get in trouble today yall and have a good one!

God Bless!

pray

Please pray for one of Uncle Jerry's best friends as he has just gotten a very hard diagnosis. You know we never know when our time is, but some of us have a better idea. Dr's give us a warning, or a timeframe, but don't you think God does too? He warns us when what we are doing is not good for ourselves, we just have to be willing to listen. We may not always want to hear it, kind of like the Dr's, but we have a choice to try, just like technology with medicine, gives us a chance to fight. I know that God has a lot better weapons against that which threatens us, wether it is sin, sorrow, death, dying, and the peace that passes understanding. Live in today, for it is the day God has made, rejoice and be glad in it.

God Bless!

heaven

Well, we ended up having two floaters and the cats outside loved it. We thought Eme would be upset, but she ended up asking Ele and she told her. Eme jus said, "Oh well I'll just get another." I guess the talk over expecting them to die was taken literally! Have a great day yall!

God Bless!
