Thank You

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your thoughts and prayers.  As of now, my dad is okay.  I updated on the previous post with more details, then happened to think you might not check there.  Much love to all of you and Best Wishes for a bright New Year!

Prayers Needed

**UPDATE**  My dad didn't have a heart attack -- thank goodness.  The EMT people told my mom that's what they thought was going on.  I had just talked to my mom a few hours before, and everything was fine, so I was stunned when my sister called to say she and my mom were on the way to the hospital.  My dad had just had a blood transfusion the day before, and the doctor told my mom that this episode may have been a delayed reaction to the blood transfusion.  I don't normally write these kind of posts because they're more private for me.  Our whole year has pretty much been exactly like this, so it's been really hard on everyone -- my parents most of all.

I can't thank you enough for your response to my prayer request, and I'm reminded once again how powerful prayer really is.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart -- you are all just the very BEST.

Please pray for me and my family, if you would.  My father has just been rushed to the emergency room, and they think he's having a heart attack.  His body is already so weak, I don't see how it can take much else.  He's been sick a lot this year, but this is just too sudden.  Your prayers are much appreciated.

A New Christmas Wreath

Hello everyone!  The days are flying by out there, and I imagine we're all feeling the crunch.  I've missed posting and visiting my friends online, but I've been trying to make up for lost time in Christmas preparations.  I've seen some beautiful posts over the week, and I will be getting around (slowly but surely) to visiting again and leaving a comment this time.

My mom has several beautiful holiday wreaths in her home, and since I've long been a little bored with our Christmas wreath for the front door, I asked my mom if she would help me make a new one.  She's always happy to help.  These are not the best pictures, but the best I could do in a hurry this morning.  ;)

German Wax Ornaments

I've been frantically putting out our Christmas decorations since Monday, and have fallen into bed worn out every night.  I decided to take a little break today, and I wanted to share with you some of our favorite ornaments.

The Spirit of Christmas Past

Hi everyone -- I hope you're all well!  Unfortunately, I was sick during the Thanksgiving holiday; I'm mostly better, but still have a little ways to go.  I apologize for once again falling behind on my visits to you, but I will be knocking at your door very soon (strictly in the cyber sense of course).  :)

I had planned to start decorating for Christmas earlier than usual this year, but getting sick put paid to that plan.  Because I'm usually so slow getting my Christmas decorations put out, I have a tradition around this time of year of showing you some images from the previous Christmas.  I don't change things a lot from year to year, but I do tweak things some.  ;)  Here are some pictures to help us get in the decorating spirit; some of these you may have seen, and others I've never shown before.
