I just want to say thank you to everyone for keeping my grand daughter Marissa in your prayers. She gave me quite a scare today being taken to the hospital. I was a nervous wreck. I cried, I prayed, then cried and prayed some more. I get so freaked when one of my kids or grandkids is ill. I guess it's a Mom thing and it's natural, but my family has endured so much death over the past few years, it scares me when someone gets sick. In the past 6 years I have lost an grandson,aunt,uncle,2cousins,niece,great-nephew,and my dad, that's 8 people. So I think you can see why I get so freaked. But I do believe it was all your prayers that helped in Marissa's case. You don't know how much it means to me having so many people care so much about my grand daughter. I wish you could meet her. She is just so precious. Full of questions, always wanting a hug or giving a hug, if I'm not feeling well she holds my hand and says it's ok mommom, you'll be ok. And she has the most beautiful green eyes. I am so proud to have a grand daughter such as her. I am really blessed. Here's a pic of my girls, My 2 daughter's and Marissa, I love this pic of them.
In this Pic Marissa stole a candy cane off the tree, lol. Three of the loves of my life they are. I can't believe it's been almost 3 years since this pic was taken. Wow, time sure has gone by fast.
I don't know if I ever told you about my brother Harry. He lives in San Francisco, California. He's lived there over 20 years now. He's come back east and tried to live here, but he always missed california and went back. I really miss him. And I am so afraid because he lives 3000 miles away and he has AIDS. He was diagnosed HIV positive when he was 17yrs old. He shared a needle with another drug user not knowing that other user was infected with full blown aids. That user dies 6 month's after Harry was diagnosed with the HIV virus. But Harry has beaten the odds. He is 41yrs old and he is still alive. He quit the drugs, eats healthy, excercises and takes his aids medication faithfully. The doctors say he is a walking miracle. I went to see Harry in 1998 in San Francisco all by myself, hubby stayed home. I flew on an airplane for the very first time, man was I terrified, lol. But I was so happy to see my brother. Harry and his friend/roomate Frank picked me up from the airport. I had an awesome 2 weeks there. Here's a pic of me and Harry. We were on a boat going for a ride in the bay under the San Francisco Bay Bridge and seen Alcatraz. Did'nt get to go in cause you had to buy tickets way in advance and we did'nt know that.
I'm not really a blonde, my hair was frosted then. Actually Harry and I have the same color hair and eyes. Handsome is'nt he? But sorry ladies, he likes men, lol. I support him in his way of life 100%. As long as he is happy, is all that matters. He's my brother and I love him very much. Ok, now this next pic, I had taken a shower and had'nt did my hair or makeup yet, cause we were going out to dinner that night. Harry, Frank and I. They took me to a beautiful italian restaurant. Wow, the food was amazing. But here's what I looked like before I was ready, lol.
Scarey huh? But ya know what I actually like that look. i call it the fresh look, lol. Ok, I mentioned that Bake-n-Fill cake pan set I'll be using for Rebecca's birthday cake. Here's what it looks like.
I'll get pics of the cake to show you and birthday pics also. She's gonna have an awesome day sunday. She has only gotten 1 birthday card and says, mommy how come I did'nt get anymore cards? I told her she'd get more for her birthday. Her favorite thing is cards, she loves them the best. Give her a card she carries it around all day acting like she can read it, lol. She's too funny. So maybe I'll buy her a whole bunch of birthday cards so she has alot of them instead of just one from daddy and mommy, lol. I'll get those strips of stickers they sell and put some in each card for her to paste in her notebook I gave her for stickers. She loves doing that. Emma wants to get Rebecca's ears pierced for her birthday. But Jim is'nt too happy with that. He does'nt want them pierced. He said it should be her choice when she gets older. I guess he is right. Well, I guess I've made a long enough entry. LOL. But before I go please continue to pray for Marissa. She is'nt 100% yet, and is'nt into eatting right now. All she had was that half turkey sandwich today, but is drinking some more water. I'm so thankful it was'nt anymore serious then it was. Thank you everyone.
