My boys

I love being a mother to my awesome sons.  I love them with all my heart.  I am so proud of them and I thank God for them everyday.  I am so proud of them.  They are so sweet and have so much respect.  They love the Lord.  They go to church every Sunday.  I pray they will always trust in the Lord always!!  We love fishing, bowling, video games, and playing sports.  They are both great bass fishermen.  They both are so smart.  Just the other day my youngest son said, "momma I remember when I was little you would read to me at night time before I went to bed, but I always would fall asleep, then he goes on to say that was just rude to fall asleep while you were reading to me".  I said, "no it wasn't rude, sometimes reading makes people sleepy".  My boys are so thoughtful and they anything to help me in anything I need help with.  I love them with all my heart and I am so blessed to have them.

Hubby home!!

My husband is home and is doing well.  He still has some pain and some gas pain.  Its crazy cuz its like I'm having all his gas symptoms (not fun).  We both been eating on Tums.  He has got to do a lot of walking, so we've been walking up and down our road.  He wanted to go to Wal-Mart, so we were there for about 2 hours.  He got in a lot of walking today, but he still has to take it easy for about 8-12 weeks  So that means no lifting over 5 lbs, no exercises, no pulling, tugging, or to much straining, no work and NO IBUPROFEN EVER!!!!!  Basically all he can do is sit and walk.  Oh yeah and he has to take in deep breathes so his lungs will be strong.   Poor guy, but he's an awesome guy!!

My hubby, my hero!!

As I sit here in this hospital and listen to the sounds of the equipment I thank God my husband is doing good.  I pray that the person receiving his kidney has no problems and her body accepts her new kidney.  It broke my heart today when they brought my hubby to his room.  He was breathing hard and in so much pain.  I did ask him if he was ready to do it again, he said, "no".  Then I asked him if he had it to do over would he?  He paused for a few seconds and said,  "yes".  What a great gift he gave to someone else to help them have a normal life without all the machines involved in kidney failure.  He is sleeping at the moment and his mouth is so dry.  Poor guy, earlier all he could do was get sick.  Not good with all the cutting, stitches, and glue.  I pray everything goes good with him and that he has a normal life without one of his kidneys.  He's one of the best people I know and I am thankful his heart is like it is today.  So thoughtful, caring and giving.  I'm proud of the Christian man he has become.  I thank God for him and I will always love and cherish him.  Keep him in prayer.  Thank yall!!

A true act of kindness!!

Just a question??  Would you donate a kidney??  Would you donate a kidney to a complete stranger??  I don't think I could not to a stranger.  I would to my family if they needed one.  I know someone who is going to donate their kidney to a complete stranger.  I have begged him not to do it, but he really wants to help someone who can't live without a kidney. I'm scared for him but I'm trusting in the Lord.  The surgery is going to take place on Wednesday and the kidney will be flown to the hospital where the recipient is.  The person who is donating is not expecting anything in return, not an award, not to be recognized, not to be known as a hero, nothing.  How many people do you know like this?  I am blessed and honored to know this person.  Keep him in your prayers and how far will you go to help someone?

To my loving memory..Happy Father's Day

On this Father's Day as every other one I remember my Daddy, who is no longer here.  He passed away in 2007.  Not really something I expected.  On his birthday and Father's Day I look at his picture and tell him I love and miss him.  And tell him Happy Birthday, or this month Happy Father's Day.  He may not of been around me all the time, but the time we were together were good times.  The last time I seen him was April 2006, a dear lady Miss. Annie and myself drove to Tennessee to see him while he was in the hospital.  Seeing him then broke my heart, and that was the first and last time I seen him cry.  I know without a doubt my daddy loved me more than anything, it doesn't take a daddy being there everyday to know that.  I have some great memories with my dad.  I can still hear him leaving me a voicemail saying, "hey baby, it's your daddy".  I would love to hear his voice again.  But I know he's in a better place.  I know where ever he was he'd come as quick as he could when I needed him.  I remember when I was having my first son, my daddy drove from Tennessee and stayed a few days.  He would drop everything for me.  When I had my second son, my daddy couldn't be there, but he came as soon as he could.  In my eyes he was my hero, he may not of been there with me everyday, but he helped others who didn't have anybody.  I was blessed to have my daddy and I love him so very much.  To all who still have their dads, tell them you love them often, and see them whenever you can.  So this Father's Day like all others....HAPPY FATHER'S DAY AND I LOVE YOU DADDY AND MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!!  

Police dog's farewell to partner

A 33-year-old K-9 officer, Jason Ellis gunned down last month in what authorities believe was an ambush.  Fido, Ellis' police dog, was there, too, placing his paw on the closed casket—a moment captured in a heartbreaking photo.   This goes to show what has always been said, is true..a dog is a man's best friend.  Now Fido is retired and lives with the fallen officers family.  The mayor stated, "the boys grew up with Fido, and this is a connection to their father they can keep".  Officer Ellis is survived by his wife and children.  To his family, may God comfort you and give you peace in this time of sorrow.  You are in our prayers.
