Good and bad times!

I have been on holidays for the last two weeks. The first week I did not do to much I wasn't feeling all that well, we had some really hot weather and I spent most of the week in the house. We have air conditioning and believe me it was wonderful!
The second week I went to visit my Mom who lives about two hours away. We had a good time. She lives near Lake Huron we always spend lots of time near the beach it was great.
Unfortunatley my mother-in-law has become very ill and has been in the hospital for the last few days. She has just gone in for emergency surgery tonight and we are praying all goes well. She is very fragile right now and we are all not feeling too good about things so please keep us in your thoughts and if you could a prayer right now would be much appreciated. I will keep you updated when I can.

My blessings

Counting my blessings, that is an easy one. My husband, my children, and my grandchildren. The other very important blessing is my Mom. She is a wonderful mother and I try to thank her and tell every day by phone that I love her. My mother and I live 2 hours a part, so we talk a lot on the phone. I have started calling her every day, I like going to bed a night and knowing she is safe and loved. Life can be interupted at any time so you had better enjoy every minute because you just never know what is around the corner.

Don't you just wonder.............

My Sunday was really a good day. Slept in, had a ymmy breakfast with DH and then we went for a car ride. We went to Hewett's for ice cream, it was a very hot day. Then we headed for Port Dover and sat on the pier and watched all the boats. Where does all the money come from? Do I want to know.....NO!
Not only are the boats costing so much but the gas all the repairs etc......
Oh well, we headed home had dinner and then settled in the couch. Good to spend the whole day with DH. We do not see each other through the week so it is really nice to see each other on the week-end.
Monday was a bad day, my son-in-law had a friend of the family pass away. It was actually his sisters BF. She was 36 years old and a mother of three little girls all under the years of 9. How sad is that, yes it was cancer.
My poor son-in-law decided to go fishing for an hour to clear his head he was very upset. He slipped on a rock in the river hit his head and broke his wrist. Can you believe it? His doctor said another young lad had the same accident, he passed away from the head wound. You just never know. Needless to say they really checked him out.
Hopefully he will heal quickly.
Have a great week everyone.
