Life Moves Ahead

Regardless if you want it too or not, life moves ahead. Somedays I wish I could rewind a few days back or even weeks. Seems like when you have your schedule all set then something happens and the next thing you know you're into the next week. Anyone else feel like that? Good, so it's not just me.

This past month has really been a challenging one for me. Not just my business, but also with my father being ill. The waiting and not knowing is the worse. We were hoping to once and for all know what we were dealing with, but again, we don't know for sure if he has cancer.
Doctors said as far as they can see he doesn't have cancer, but just damage as a result of the chemicals he worked with. BUT..there's always that but in there...we are still waiting on news of the lymph nodes. Then, hopefully, we'll find out for sure. Meanwhile my dad is resting in the hospital where he will remain until at least Thursday. Please continue to pray for him. He's a trooper, an Army veteran, a joker, a gambler, a believer and he thanks you too.

As if that wasn't enough to send me into next week, then it has to be going to Court with my youngest daughter. That's where I'll be tomorrow morning. Lord willing, my ex son-in-law will get chastized for not paying his child support and for his constant harassment of my very stress-ridled daughter. He has really taken the cake with some of his ways of harassing her. It amazes me. Please pray that the Judge will be able to see exactly what kind of man he is and not be fooled. There has to be justice for young mothers like my daughter.

And lastly my enemy,fibromyalgia, once again has sucked of my days from me. I hate fibromyalgia!!! I can't even have 2 days of delight, shopping in the sunshine with my lovely daughter; or taking a trip to the fabric store on 2 occasions and then there's a day yardsaling to have landed me a day where I'm not myself!! I refuse to give in and allow it to take my joy away. I will go out to lunch with my husband even if I am in pain. I need to quit giving into it! It will not control my life!

Thanks for all the prayers and for listening to me whining.

I wasn't able to list my TDIPT offerings on the site this month in time for upload. However, I'm still working to finish them and they will be on my website under "Spring" or the side bar HERE. They will all be rabbits in time for Spring and Easter! Please don't miss them.

I could still use your prayers for my daughter for tomorrow. Thanks so much!

Bless your heart you have certainly had much to carry.
Our justice system scares me because so much falls to the integrity of the said judge(sigh)
Please let us know more and some news about your dad...

My friend suffers with FM...last year she was IV-d with RECLASP...this year her scans are so, so "improved" is a yearly IV hubby talked to his dr. and he just had it last week. We are so hopeful...

Keep your "UP" attitude and lovely smile. I do know prayers help and you and your family are in mine.

Sandra Brown pointed at a lady standing in Montel Williams's audience and said "...SUGAR is
your worst have Fibromyalgia...
The lady was stunned.

My goodness Sharon!
I just saw my spelling in the comment i sent you!!
Fair enough i was typing in a rush as i was heading out the door, but that is no excuse :-/
I'm very embarrased!
Hope things are looking up a bit now for you, you have been in my thoughts, trying to motivate myself to make somemore dolls, who knows maybe one day we can do a doll swap and you can have a British Raggedy in your collection? lol.
Still keep the positive thoughts coming for a fellow doll maker :-)
