Another update and more.........

   I know I am late, but I wanted to wish a very special lady a very Happy 35th Birthday. Our dear Angie turned 35 years young. Happy Birthday lil sister, love ya.

I have a favor to ask of you all. My FIL is in the hospital. He had 2 stents put in on friday. Now he has to have an artery replaced. Today he finds out if his heart is strong enough to do this next surgery. If not he will go home and it will be all up to God then. Jim and Emma have gone to see him the past 2 evenings. Jim said his Dad is so thin, so pale and weak. Last night Jim broke down and cried in my arms. He said he knows his Dad is going to die and he don't know if he is strong enough to deal with the pain, and he is worried about his Mom. In the 29 1/2 years I have known my husband, I have never seen him so upset. All I could do was hold him. Would you all please pray for Jim's Dad? His name is Walter Sawn. Thank you.

We have packed so much and moved quite a bit of furniture over to the storage bin. Jim told me to empty my dresser today, and he will be taking that to the storage bin tonight. My daughter Emma has been working her butt off helping Jim move things. One of my SIL older brothers named Don is going to help Jim move the bigger pieces of furniture. I thought that was really nice of him to offer to help. I told him we would pay him he said nope. Just cook dinner and invite him over after we're moved into Emma's. So he's getting homemade Lasagna, sausage and meatballs, my homemade garlic and cheese bread, and a big salad. He said that works for him, lol. I'll even make an extra tray so he can take it home.

I also want to let you know about a new journal made by our dear Jeannette of Jeannettes Jottings. This very sweet lady has made an open journal for all of us to make an entry about someone we have lost. It could even be a pet. So far I have added my baby sister Susie to this wonderful journal, and I have more loved ones to add also. Please stop by and check out this beautiful journal.

These We Have Loved. 

Also I must say my thoughts and prayers go out to LJ and her husband and children for their recent loss of a dear family friend. LJ, Rick, Chad and Meg. Please know I have you in my heart. Words can never express our true feelings when something so tragic as a death comes into our lives.

Well, I have more packing to do, so I best get to it. I wish there was more then one of me. Packing sucks, lol. But it's worth it, because I am moving out of this apartment and off this noisey street. YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!!

I'd better go now. I will try to get to your journals within the next few days. I want to have them all done before we take the computer down. Take care all.

Love you.............................Cindy


  1. I will certainly pray for Walter Cindy and hope that he does recover.  Hugs to you all.  Also a very Happy Birthday to your sister, Angie.

  2. happy birthday to angie, and many prayers being sent to your fil.

  3. Sending LOTS of prayers for all those you mentioned.
    Also wanted to let you know the new journal you mentioned is called "These We Have Loved". You highlighted an entry instead of the journal. Thought I'd let you know.

  4. I am so happy that you are getting out of there.  Please send me your snail mail at Emma's so I can send you cards and letters and stuff. I will also keep FIL in prayers.  I am really sorry how hard and how much Jim is hurting at this time.  Send him our hugs and love too.

  6. Nice to hear things are moving along... now I'd help move for a dinner like that!!  
    Love ya

  7. You're going through what I will be doing here soon. MOVING. I'm looking for something right now. I've thought about moving to the city which I don't know if I would like or not, but was thinking the kids would be closer to school, but just depends on where I get a job at and when I get a car.
    Your friend sounds like our friends they always tell me just cook me some food. I can do that. He'll be so happy to get that food from you.
    Sorry to hear about Jim's father. Prayers going out to everyone.
    Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

    Cindy happy birthday to your Sister ~ glad you are getting everything packed away for your move ~ It will be great for you moving to somewhere new ~ Keeping your FIL in my thoughts and prayers ~ Ally x

  12. I am mailing you some articles today to Emma's house so be on the lookout for it. I hate moving as much as i hate painting. I will pray for your FIL. Poor Jim. I hope your FIL is ok and pulls thru. Do NOT overdo it and thank you for being there for Rick during this sad time.

  13. A belated Happy Birthday to your dear sisiter...and yes, prayers going up for your FIL.  That meal sounded so it was.
    Many hugs to Jeannette for her hard work on the journals she is putting together and to LJ...the loss of their dear friend was hard.  Prayers for them too.  Ihope the move goes smoothly...many hugs and love,

  14. I will keep Jim and his dad in my prayers. Losing my parents was the hardest thing I ever went through. It is just tell Jim I'm sending him a huge hug, ok?
    I'm sorry you are moving at this time, too. Moving is such a stressful thing to have to deal with. I hope you are happier at your new digs.
    Love ya, Pam xoxox
