Welcome, August

July served up a big plate of busyness and stress for me. I'm full! I'm hoping that August will be kinder and gentler. July started out with a great bang as we traveled to Atlanta over the 4th to visit my sister and brother-in-law. Such a great time!!! But since arriving home, my life has been full.  I feel pulled in several directions--needing to do some things that make me happy (blog posting, blog reading, crafting) but knowing that I won't be able to relax and enjoy my happy place until I've tied up loose ends.

In the last 3 weeks, I've worked a 60 hour week, had 4 doctor appointments, 3 dentist visits (had to have the same filling redone THREE times!--thank goodness for laughing gas!), a mammogram, PAP test, and a colonoscopy.  Oh, and I'm scheduled for sinus surgery in September.  YAY, ME!!!

I'm not really complaining. I'm very lucky to have a supportive and caring husband and daughter. And of course I have my little Livi--shiner of the brightest sunshine EVER.

July, I bid you farewell....good-bye, adios, au revoir, auf wiedersehen

Hello my dear friend!
How long did not even see you, miss you ... you do not even appeared on my birthday which was on 08/07, but that's okay, I understand you are very busy, I am too, and I know it is not easy, nor we inspiration to post.
My dear, I mean that I will introduce you in my prayers and ask God to be with you at this difficult time and that everything goes well this your surgery, and will be all right in the name of Jesus! Do you believe? If yes, have no fear.
Have a blessed day.
A big hug.
