I’ve been pretty scarce lately. I apologize for that, I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write about my last 4 months.
As you know in July I had eye surgery. It went real well and it took 3 months for my eye to stable out. The doc said that my eye sight would change over 3 months. And it did, I was finally released by the surgeon at the beginning of October. I just saw my regular eye doctor and he is able to correct my eye sight to 20/30. I’m excited, the doc not so much! I guess my cataracts have grown, especially in my surgical eye. So I guess that is my next endeavor … cataract surgery. I still have to recoup the cost of the last surgery. But, we’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
My son got married in September at Zion National Park. We had such a great time visiting with family. Here is a picture of my beautiful children
along with hubby and I. I couldn’t find the one with hubby and I. Actually I see it everyday as it is on my desktop, but I couldn’t get it to upload to WordPress. Yes, I am a dork!!
It was so great to see my children and grandchildren. They all have grown so much, but they are sure getting to be their own person. HAH, children and grandchildren. Also to be in such a beautiful area, Zion National Park. I told hubby that I could live there. It would be so cool!!! Just saying!
Work has been busy, as September is the start of the ministry year. With the business comes craziness but, a fun craziness. Before my son’s wedding, he told me that he is in A-Fib and they had to shock his heart to get his sinus rhythm back . Well, it didn’t work and the next step is a pacemaker. So in October, he called to let me know that he was having his pacemaker put in on October 15th. After my silent initial reaction, I called him the next day to see if he wanted me to come out. After he and his new bride discussed it, I flew out to Lincoln on Saturday, 10/13. He had his surgery on Monday, as scheduled and spent the night to make sure all was okay. His dad and step-mom surprised him and showed up when he returned from recovery. Ry went home the next day and he is getting better everyday. By the time I left, he was driving and the seat belt wasn’t irritating his incision, well, not as much as it did in the beginning. I had asked him the other day how he was feeling and he said great! I didn’t get to see anyone while I was back in Nebraska, which I apologize for, because I stayed at the house and hung out with the new puppy, my son and his family. I’m excited for them as they had just bought and moved into a home, before his surgery. It’s a cute house and the furniture they got for it, transforms the rooms! Sometimes, I wish I lived closer to all my kids … maybe one day, we’ll get to spend time traveling around to spend a little time with each one.
The Friday after I got home, I went with 2 buses full of ladies from our church to the Women of Faith Conference in Sacramento. Wow, what an experience! I had a great time. So many uplifting speakers and great music. If you are a female and this conference comes to an area near you, don’t hesitate to go!! You won’t regret it. We laughed, we cried, we sang, we were amazed, and in total awe of all that we saw and experienced! I fell in love with my Savior all over again. I’m hoping next year, I can get all my girls to go with me. Now that would be cool, to get my daughters and daughter in law to go. We’ll see.
In between all of this, I’ve been sick. Three times on antibiotics and this last time was working. That is until I felt so good and decided to rake the leaves in the front yard. I was so exhausted that it was difficult to even lift my arms to put the piles in the hopper. Once I finished, I was done. I went to bed and stayed there. Today I’m better … well, enough to go to work and then to the eye doc. Now I’m ready for bed and it’s only 7:16pm.
Tomorrow is voting day. I’ve already voted … but it’s exciting to see the commitment of people to go out there and vote. We may or may not agree on the candidates or the issues, but we are doing what this country is all about … democracy … making your choice known by voting. Standing up for your beliefs. Just remember, for those that are standing up for their beliefs and voting on their chosen candidate, that is exactly what the next person is doing. That choice may be the same as yours, but it also may be different from yours, but we all are choosing to do what made us so privileged to live in the USA, voting for our choice. It looks to be a close race and we’ve all done our part. Whichever candidate wins, I pray that this candidate does what is best for our country. Does what’s best for our citizens and get this country recovering from the huge debt, the unemployment, the foreclosures, etc. So choose your candidate, but remember, the rest of that voting line will choose theirs.
