Wow, I'm over whelmed with the very kind welcome you all have extended to me.
I look forward to getting to know more of you too.
To answer a question 24 is on Fox on Monday nights at 8 o'clock here anyway.
It's looking like my dh may not go back to work. This is part of the situation we are working through. He has been told he needs both knees replaced now and also has a bulging disk in his neck. He's working toward trying to work until he's told he won't be allowed to, which we feel is probably going to happen.
He's a locomotive engineer-he drives trains and is just two years away from completing his 30 yrs and receiving full retirement. If this happens we will also be left with no health insurance.
I am a woman of faith, at least I have always tried to be, but I can honestly say I struggle with being afraid. I guess the unknown can do that to you. I do believe God is faithful and I put my trust in Him. This season in our lives is stretching us though.
We're in the midst of planning a wedding, which is fun. This is my third oldest dd and it's quite a story. She became pregnant when she was a sophomore in high school and had my grandson, Jacob when she was 16. At that point in time the father was making big plans for college and not able to accept this responsibility. He has always supported her financially, but cut her off emotionally, wouldn't even talk to her.
To make a long story short, they are getting married in Aug. Jacob is 8 and they will finally be a family.
I didn't really believe this would ever happen because they honestly hated each other for so long.
This is a complete turn around. My dh, on the other hand, has prayed for it from the beginning.
Anyway, one night last spring he asked her if they could talk and humbled himself, apologized, cried, said she was the only person in the world with the same first priority as him (Jacob). It's just the best love story.
We are going today to look at and order the flowers and also to look for colored fabric to make little covers for the tables. We also need to rent over 30 vases for flowers.
We're going to order the flowers and make all the bouquets ourselves oh and the arrangements for the reception tables. We did it for my last dd's wedding too and it was very fun and turned out beautiful. I'm praying it will all come together this time too.
Better get to work. Thanks again for the warm welcome. You all made my morning today.
