This morning as I was surfing the many blogs I read, I noticed what an assortment( for the lack of a better word) they are. I read scrapbooking blogs, Inspirational blogs, organizing blogs, junkin or antique blogs, altered art blogs and Dubya the tumor blog. This is a blog of a man than had a brain tumor and started a blog and his journey. Although I may never meet these people, I feel as though we are friends. So when a friend asks for prayers for a loved one or just because they are facing a difficult week, I pray. I agree the computer has brought challenges for many families, but this is just one of the good things, I feel the computer has brought to our lives. So I am here to ask for your prayer for my niece, Elizabeth. She has juvenile diabetes. She has had a difficult couple of years. She graduated last May and has gone to school to become a nurse. She has been in and out of the hospital alot lately. November is National Diabetes Month and if you are ask to donate, please do.

I just got a disturbing phone call......let me start at the beginning.
Over the weekend the #2 grandson has been sick, and not eating. But the doctor said as long as we get him to drink, it will be okay. So on the way to get his mom from work yesterday , he wanted Tea. So I pulled into McDonald's (first mistake) and got this sick, sweet thing a big tea. We had to wait on Mom for a few minutes and he wanted out of his seat. I let him out ( this was my second mistake). When Mom started toward the car, he accidentally stepped on the Styrofoam cup and busted it. The tea filled up the cup holders and flowed all over everything and me. Sticky sweet tea. All at once I realize, my phone was floating in the cup holder. It is time for a new phone and I have looked. But I don't want to make a decision on a split second. So we dried it with a blow dryer and recharged it. But this morning it was dead, so I ask hubby to just go by and pick me up a new phone after work. I have been saying I wanted an i phone....but only if they reduce the price a little more, like less than $150.00 . yeah, right. So I have been looking all morning @ new phones on-line. And just now the phone rang, caller ID said it was me. Can you believe hubby has got this phone to work. blank screen but working. So will I get a new phone, or accidentally drop it in the toilet? Update: Hubby came in with a new phone this afternoon, he is a sweetheart.

I saw the 2 year old hug his brother after I had gotten on to him for snatching a toy away. He did not give him the toy but he did hug him, without me asking.
I saw a red a white striped tent in a field yesterday, old fashion tent revival. It was beautiful.
I got a new book on Sunday afternoon, Ali Edwards- Life Artist. I recommend it. She makes you look at things in a different way. And I think I like it. Stay Tuned for more inspired post.
