Thankful Day 23

I am thankful for good health.  I have been having chest pains fairly regular.  I went to see a heart doctor yesterday.  I told him how I was feeling and what I had been experiencing.  He told me that I had every symptom of heart disease.  They were able to get me in for a stress test right away.  {good thing, because if I had to come back for it I would have found a reason to cancel it.}  After an ultrasound of my heart--yes I do have a heart :-)--stress test and more ultrasound pictures he told me that my likelyhood of having heart disease is very, very low.  My heart and vessels were normal.  I still need to keep a check on the pains and if they become regular or worsen that I need to come back and have a heart cath.  My blood pressure is a bit high, could be reason for some of the symptoms.  (usually I carry a low bp and if it is normal it is too high.)

Yes, I am thankful for good health.  So, what excuse should I use if I want to lay in bed all day? ;-)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
