Things Are Getting Better

It was a good day today. My husband got good news from him doctor and even though I am still in a sling, things are doing OK.

I am knitting again slowly and have finished the back of my tropical Tee. I have cast on for the front and will begin knitting it soon. I got some wonderful Alpaca from Eleganza's sale and also some Shalimar.

God blesses us always, and it is said all prayers are answered, even if it is not what you wanted. Garth Brooks has a wonderful song call "I Thank God For Unanswered Prayers", you should listen to it some time it really has a great message.

I just finished reading "The Shack" I recommend it to everyone, it can be a life changing book. It shows God, Jesus and The Holy Ghost in a wonderful and unique way.

I just want to thank God for today and his many blessings. I want to live up to His standards and be worthy of His blessings.

Ah Summer

It is starting to get a little more sticky here, but the weather is still great. I am still trying to mend, but it is not going to well, the Doctor hopes in another three weeks to see some healing. I am not knitting much, but a will do a row at a time and stop. I miss being able to knit faster, there are some new projects I want to start.

Our sons wedding is coming up in about two months so things are getting a little more hectic on that front. My brother is not doing real well, so please continue to pray for him.

It has been nice to have someone clean the house for us, it would be even better if I could continue to have her come every week. ( Ah what luxury).

I miss everyone at my knitting groups, but can't go anywhere until I can drive and who knows when that will be.

Well that is about all.

A Brief Note

This will not be long, since I shouldn't be typing. My broken collar bone is not healing and I have to see an orthopedist. This are frustrating times since I can't do much of anything, it is wearing on me. The picture is one I took at night of the moon over our neighborhood. It looks like the sun, but if you look, the house silhouette is black. I have always been fascinated by the moon and the light it sheds.

I want to get back to knitting, but I don't know what the Doctor is going to say. I may have to have surgery. Who Knows?

Thank God and Ford

As some of you may or may not know Darby and I were in a serious accident on June20, 2009. As you see from the picture our car was totalled. We escaped with minor injuries, I have broken collarbone and contusions and Darby has some bad contusions. We were hit head on and spun around and then hit by two more cars. God was with us that day and our Ford Taurus did the rest. I was stuck in the car and the fire department had to pry the door off to get me out. All in all we are very lucky.

Something like this makes you think. We have the pain and the fatigue but we are alive. We will never drive the same way again. The guy that hit us was leaning down to get his sunglasses and came over the center line. We all do things like this, but not any more.

Since our car was totalled we had to get a new one. A Ford Taurus of course. The new one has Sync, which syncs my phone with the speaker system. No more driving while holding the phone.

I can't do much knitting, I am so right handed it is ridiculous, I am totally helpless. I am able to half dress myself now but it is still difficult. I miss seeing every one and of course I can't drive for a while, so I am at the mercy of my darling husband and daughter.

I love my husband dearly and appreciate all he is doing, especially since he doesn't fell 100% yet.
This makes you think and appreciate your life.

God was with us that day and is with us everyday, I thank Him everyday for saving our lives.
