Exciting News!!!

A week ago out son proposed to his beautiful girlfriend, Liz, and she excepted. They are scheduling their wedding for next Sept. 8, 2012. As with all our children we have prayed for the one they would wed, not knowing who. God knew, so the prayer was put in His hands and for His will for whom they would marry. She is a beautiful woman and Christian. We are excited to welcome her to our family. Now we will have a daughter named Elizabeth and a daughter-in-law named Elizabeth. That could get interesting, but not a problem.

Willing to try new things, this is her first time behind the boat, and she had a blast.

We are excited, as is her family.

Life Happens

This has been a very interesting week.

(1) I found out on Sat. that my SIL has stage 4 breast cancer. Not at all a nice thing to find out. She is fighting it, but still. There is no cancer in her family. There will be future visits (she is about 3 1/2 hours away)

(2) Sunday I get a call from my niece, my husband's youngest brother passed away that morning . Just turned 55 in July. I am not a fan of getting up early (got up at 3:30), but we had 3 1/2 hour drive to San Francisco Airport so Dan could meet up with his oldest brother and the 2 of them flew to Ohio for a week, to help settle their younger brothers affairs and be with his daughters, ages (almost) 16 and just 20. Yes there is a mother, but he was a single dad, he raised them. They are with their mom now and that is where my husband and his brother will stay.

(3) My youngest son broke a bone in his hand and today it was put in a cast of sorts. He is unable to ride his motorcycle at this point. He is off work for 3 days so is coming up tonight. However, not quite half way, he believes the head gasket on his truck blew. He will eventually show up with his truck behind a tow truck--- which he did at 1:20 AM. Considering I had gotten up at 3:30 the morning before I was very ready for some sleep.
What can I say except that life happens. I can just thank my heavenly Father He is there, for all His amazing grace and power and for all He is!!
"When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made one as well as the other." .....Ecclesiastes 7:14
Have a Blessed day!!!
