I can't believe it's been over 4 weeks since I've posted anything. I'm not sure I've ever gone that long since starting this blogging thing. Life has been a little tough lately and I'm afraid it's going to get worse before it gets better. However, I know God is here and involved in it all and I know He has a plan and my job is to trust Him. So that is where I am. Trusting. But also, in the midst of the hard things, there are good things too.
*Mom had open heart surgery in August and was just really recovering from that when we found out she had colon cancer. So last month she had surgery to remove the tumor. All went well with the surgery, but she is having a hard time recovering. In fact, she just left the hospital after over 3 weeks in there. She is now in a Transitional Care Unit, until she can get back her strength.
*My brother has stopped his chemo as it's not working. So things are not the greatest there. Unless God chooses to intervene, there's not a lot of hope. But I know he has a relationship with Jesus and is ready should God choose to take him home.
*Hubby and I decided to go ahead and go on our vacation as we thought things were fairly stable. However, we were only gone 6-7 days when we found out things were getting worse, so we came home. We really hated to leave his parents in Myrtle Beach, but they were very gracious and understood. So, while we didn't get our full 3 weeks, we did get a few days on the beach and I'm grateful for the time we did have. Here are a few pictures.

*We have a new Grandkitty. Kelli has always wanted a cat, but we have always had a dog. So now that she is out on her own, she got one. Her name is Esmerelda and Kelli calls her Ezzie. Isn't that just the cutest name.
*And there's nothing quite like Christmas lists with pictures. lol
