Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind....

Was not able to post about last need to catch up on that first.

 Hub, #2daughter, and I took grandson to Fall Festival last weekend.  He enjoyed playing the games while I enjoyed the silent auction.

He doesn't look too happy here--time for a pose then you may play.

Last Sunday, we had a young group come to our church and perform, This group was amazing,  I could have listened to them sing for hours.  We had volunteered for a few girls to spend the night at our house and it was a blessing to us.

On Tuesday, I was home sick-some type of flu bug.  #1 daughter was on her way home-she had her check-up in Charlottesville on  Wednesday a check-up I might add, she has put off for two years because of her classes at pharmacy school.  #1 daughter has had two open heart surgeries and I have never missed a doctor's appointment with her until now.  I cried all day Wednesday and worried.  When hub called to say her pressures in her heart were up and she was going through a stress test, I lost it at home.  From the time hub called until he called again-was the longest 30 minutes.  I cried, I prayed, I cried, I prayed,..So happy to hear she hit a 'home run' on the stress test and was on her way home.  I cried, I prayed, I cried, I prayed some more. I know God does not put any more on us than we can handle, and Wednesday was a very tough day for me.

The sunset was beautiful Halloween Night....
 As I looked at the sunset and took this picture-I thought to myself-this was God saying to me He has it all under control.

Grandson and #2 daughter were all excited.

They both went to church for Trunk & Treat.  Over 900 people came to church for trunk & treat!

 This weekend wasn't too exciting.  I kept grandson on Friday night.  We went shopping for Operation Christmas Child.  On Saturday, I explained to him the reason we had bought what we did-  a little boy to be happy Christmas Morning.  He helped me put the items in a shoe box and then he said, now tell me the story again Mam Mow about the happy little boy. While tears stung my eyes, I retold the story.

I must end with another story about that I die laughing.
I am sure your phone is constantly ringing with campaign surveys.  Grandson loves to answer the phone and he can carry on a conversation like an adult.  Last night our phone rang, and he answered it as usual.  He was just talking away and then he says, Okay, will you bring me a chicken nugget happy meal, tea, and a toy.  He handed the phone to me ( I assumed it was #1 or #2 daughter) it was a campaign worker for Mitt Romney!!  The person did get a laugh out of grandson; I think he had made her night!

Hope all is safe and well.

  1. Glad #1daughter's checkup turned out okay. No helpless feeling like knowing there's nothing you can do for your matter how old they are!
    900 for trunk or treat...WOW!
