Snow FLAKE

Yes...that's me...a total flake since like June? Every time I clamber back onto the blog wagon and start riding a long...I end up falling off on the bumps. I'm so sorry. And, to be honest I am not sure when I will be a consistent poster again. Facebook seems to be about my speed for the moment...and I can disappear from there without feeling guilty. I def. have my tail between my legs at the moment. Sorry, I love you...I do!

Let me at least leave you with an update :) My sister, Misty got married and all 4 of the kids were in the wedding hahaha...yeah, it went fine. I hope I can post pics within like the next month or so. So, the plan was to travel up for the wedding and be back for Brianna's performance in her Patch the Pirate play. On the way back, I learned that my Aunt who has been battling cancer and whom I have asked prayer for on occasion here, had stopped chemo and hospice was caring for her at her home. My mom told me that my Aunt was down to eating ice chips...so, we re-packed and headed back to Ohio (almost 10 hours but totally worth it) so that I could see my Aunt. I had called my Uncle the night before to let him know I was coming....she passed away before I could get there. My heart just broke, but it was amazing how everything was worked out- Brian had already requested leave for the whole week...he was going to clean out the garage and do some other errands...but apparently the Lord knew I would need to be with my family. Gas prices had dropped tremendously so traveling was no concern...we were able to spend Thanksgiving with my family and be a support (I hope) to them...and the kids did not mind the trip at all. In fact, they cheered when I told them we would have to load back up in the morning and travel back...God is so good. So, please pray for my Uncle Steve...this is going to be a very difficult holiday season for him...his bride is in glory and he will be missing her terribly until he makes his heavenly flight.

So good to hear from you again!! I miss you. Can't wait till you're posting regularly again.

So glad you're back on!!! but...so sad to hear of your loss. I'm sad for you, of course -- not for her! I got the feeling from your post that she was a Christian, in which case she's dancin' on golden streets right now, and worshipping our Lord face-to-face! But of course it still hurts for us left behind, and I sympathize with your grief.

We love you, we're glad you're back, Mrs. Y!! :)

So, nice to see a post from you again. So neat the way God worked it out with your husbands vacation. Funerals are hard. We will be praying for you. Hang in there, the rough spots in the road, will smooth out eventually.

Praying for you and your family. I am so glad that it all worked out for the trip and that you were close enough to head up there. I was so happy to see a post from you on here. I've been checking. Don't be a stranger...you can always say hi on FB too. Lots of love.

Heather, sorry to hear about your loss. I have seen so many loved ones around me lose family to cancer. It is constantly on my prayer list.

I can understand why you don't blog very often! I have five kids close together like yours, and keeping up with them can be handful enough! : )

Blessings and Merry Christmas!
