Our family has had a rough 2011. With our Granny Sue (my mother in Law) passing in April. Our lives have been so busy we have hardly been able to enjoy the benefits of homeschooling. Lately it has been more a chore then an enjoyment. We are at Pawpee's(my father in law)in Hemphill Texas on weekends. My father in law isn't adjusting to being alone very well. We go to make sure he has his medicine set out for week and at least he is eating home cooked meals 2 to 3 days out of week.Better then sausage biscuits or just junk easy to grab things.
We have had another tragedy in our family this wonderful great 2011. Our beloved Yoogalee (Sharpei/Chow)was run over by a truck. She wasn't out from laying under truck when it started which wasn't like her she always ran from loud noises or tried going by by. She will be so dearly missed she was one of our children. The kiddos are still having problems adjusting to her not being here. They are comparing her to Granny Sue. They are glad they are together. I guess thinking everything and one goes to heaven makes life seem better. But ultimately it isn't so. But for now it is ok for them to think this because it makes the gaping wounds feel better.
We thank God everyday for our blessings. We are blessed to be together to have another breath each day and to know we have a forgiving Heavenly Father. I know with the whole some values we are raising our children with that they will turn out to be some special grown ups who have a passion for Christ. I am so Thankful for my daily blessings even if I didn't ask for what shouldn't be. Thank you father God for loving us so much! =)
Thank you for stopping by and Pondering,
Above him were seraphs, each with six wings ... and they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory."
