I don't know if I'm...you know....just tired or I'm really tired.  Seems my feet are dragging these days.

My sister wrote me yesterday to remind me my son's restriction from her pool ends this Saturday. I acknowledged that, and told her that. (Why was son restricted? He used the pool w/o her permission, and wasn't being honest with me about it.)

"You know I didn't restrict you from our pool..."

I had to laugh.  Oh yes. A couple weeks ago, I came home half-drowned from the water park at Cedar Point in Ohio.  I sat in shades as much as possible, and I tried to dry out as much as possible.

So I wrote her back, that I didn't feel like being in any more pools or anything chlorinated. I was still "full" from Cedar Point. 

Oh, it's part of aging. We've gotten little too old to enjoy things like this. Aw man! *shucks* But, I will enjoy a leisurely boat ride, or if you give me a water jetski, that would be no problem.  Or, if I can get a very nice, comfortable raft to float on the water....be it pool or lake....then I'm fine.

Guess I just need to pace myself a bit these days.

Or, I blame my tiredness to the full moon.  It's been quite a weekend. Or...I'm just not feeling good....the weather's been whacky.


I do try to keep up but sometimes some days I just need to slow down.

It's only the end of July....I think my kids are ready for school, for a set routine.  Yeah.

Miracles do happen!

Oh my, I've got tears of joy and thankfulness ....

A missionary friend had a very successful surgery to remove tumors from her spine (at the neck base)...the surgery was all day today, and the neurosurgeon was able to remove all the tumors that were in there.

No Chemo, No Radiation...the best news ever. One part of cancer's butt has been kicked!

I give God all the praise and the glory!

T'is truly a miracle.

Tuesday the 13th

Today we buried Karen. It was a very beautiful service for her, and the burial service as well.

Ran into so many friends, and made few new friends.  I remarked to one friend, "seems it takes a funeral to bring everyone together to re-visit, remember, renew, and bring up to date what we're up to...I do hope next time we get together is not another funeral!"

I have a facebook account. I noticed that I've started hooking up with my former Galluedet University friends.  And it's amazing how far we all have come ....what, 20 years later....

It was just simply wonderful to hook up with friends again...they're the best thing that can happen to all of us.

Since it was a very long day for me, it'll probably be an early night for me.

My sweet friend

Karen Okroy has passed away this morning, and now safely in Heaven where she no longer will deal with pain, with the suffering that cancer has caused her. She will sorely be missed by many.

Pray for her family & friends.

Karen, I shall miss you, and I've been so blessed having the opportunity to know you and become friends with you. Know now, that you are with Jesus now, and that you are no longer what you were in an earthly form. You are now free.

We love you.

Karen Margaret (Blair) Okroy
Born October 11, 1965
Died July 9, 2010

I hate Cancer....

I really hate cancer.


I am so mad at cancer.

It's destructive. It's painful. It's just...evil.

I have another sweet friend who is now in hospice. And any moment, the Lord will sweep her away into His comforting arms....

I do pray it will be very peaceful and comfortable when she lets go of earth...and soar towards heaven.

Did I tell you how much I hate cancer? Yeah? Yeah.
