If you are coming to the Baby shower on Friday night for Charis Bontrager, it would be good to let someone know. You won’t reach anyone at Christina’s house, because Jesse is on a business trip to Florida and Christina and Charis went with him. They plan to be home sometime on Thursday. But you can call me, message me, leave me a comment, or head over there to www.xanga.com/gracegiven and let her know. THANKS!!!
In other news this week:
(Drum roll, please!!!!!) Eldest Son got a haircut. Not a trim. A REAL haircut. He looks great! I’ll love him no matter what, but some things just improve the scenery so much!!!
Brother Nelson got moved to rehab today!!! I think we are in that “reality sinking in” stage right now. He can use your prayers.
I got my third shot in my knee today, and it seems to be getting better and better. I am so grateful. Felt good enough to make some pies — even a ground cherry pie for that Good Husband of mine. There was enough crust left to make a little one for Sweet Mama. She likes pies of all sorts, and even ground cherry sounded good to her. And there is that really sweet feeling of having some pie crusts in the freezer in the event I might need them. I love to be just a little bit ahead. I should bake some bread again. This last batch went like wild fire! I think I only have one loaf left in the freezer.
Our chickens are going out tonight — a full week early! I can’t help but think it is God’s provision for us. It means that we should be able to take our Sweet Mama up to see Nelson this weekend after the baby shower. Middle Daughter has the weekend off, so she said she is willing to help make it happen. Wow!!! I am praying that this will work out.
My girlies just did some “blitzing” for me, in preparation for getting the house cleaned tomorrow. Nothing chirks me up like some helping hands from my own “in house” labor force; It makes me feel so much like we just might make it through! And now it is time to get off here and get some things done while they are off doing some of their own stuff for a bit.
