I Need…..

to ask for prayers. 

Hi everyone.  I hope you all are doing wonderful.  I don’t usually share personal things about my loved ones but…….I have been away from blogging for a while now and the reason is because we received some news about my father-in-law.  You see, he has Alzheimer’s and things are not looking good at all.   We are devastated. :(  He is like a father to me and I’m trying to shake this depression.  I will not go into details because I’m sure my little ones come and read my blog every so often.   Please keep him in your prayers. Please keep my mother in law and all of us in your prayers.    I hadn’t even decorated for Christmas until this past weekend.  My sweet mother in law told me that I should decorate.   I also told her that she should put her Christmas tree up at least (with our help) because their grandkids also look forward to seeing her tree up.   Hopefully she will change her mind.  If not, it’s ok.  Here is a picture I’d like to share with y’all.  It is of him and some of his grandkids and a couple of grandkids at heart.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and your love.  I’ll be back another day to share my Christmas tree and other little things I did.   My heartfelt thanks.

Sandra

Dear Sweet Girl...

I can so relate to your heartache because both my daddy and my hubby's father have Alzheimer's (or a form of dementia). It is a terrible, terrible disease and I pray every single day a cure will be found.

Today I lift you and your family up to the Most High. I pray for grace, understanding, strength and mercy as you each face the days ahead.

The good news is that HE has already OVERCOME!

Blessings and love to you dearest...

Oh, Sandra, honey! I'm so sorry. I'll keep your family in prayer.

Do you know that you have been on my heart and I opened your blog to find out why I've been missing you and you had just posted 8 minutes ago?

Just do what you can when you can and the rest can wait. Your boys will understand if you can't do as much this year as in years past.

Big, big hugs, Marla

I found out myself this year that bloggers have very big hearts. If you need prayers, you will find them here. I will keep you and your entire family in mine.
