What a week!

Well, this past week has been a blur! Not at all as planned, but still busy! The yard sale was canceled due to rain, but at least we will be a little more prepared for the rain date yard sale! I was at the doctor's twice this week due to some minor health issues, and will probably be back for another visit if they can fit me in tomorrow! Nothing major, as of yet, but if you feel led, just maybe say a quick prayer that it won't be anything major. I'll spare you the details, but I just haven't felt well.

My friend, Laura, and her family, came in as scheduled, late Thursday night, and I spent most of the day Friday and Saturday with them. Laura's husband is looking for a position with an EMS department in NC, so they came down to scope out the area a little more. Hopefully they will find something quickly, so they can get to moving! Their hometown is slowly becoming a place where it will be difficult to provide for a family, and they love NC, so naturally, they are trying to get down here. Plus, it will make me happy to have her close by again. It's been way too many years since we've seen each other. But, really, it's like those years didn't matter at all. We were able to pick right back up. I got to meet her youngest daughter for the first time, she is 2, and I got to see her oldest daughter again, who is now 4, she was a baby last time I saw them! Laura and I have definately been through some times where we had to help each other to continue to stand, and we'll always be close because of it. Her oldest daughter has now proclaimed that I am her new best friend, and the whole weekend, I had to hold her hand everywhere we went, sit with her at the restaraunts, watch her new learned tricks in the pool, ride in the back of the car with her, and all of which, of course, I didn't mind:) She is a cutie patootie!

I ended the week/weekend with a wonderful church service this morning. I made myself go, even though I think the devil was trying to keep me home by using my recurring health "issues". I did go, I was blessed, and now I'm home resting, hoping to feel better, but if not, I have a wonderful new doctor, and I will be buzzing her in the morning. Enjoy your Sunday evening, my wonderful ladies. It's good to be back, and if I haven't already visited your blogs, I will be by soon!

Welcome back, we missed you! I will be happy to keep you in my prayers. I'm glad you had such a great time with your friend, Laura! Oh, I wanted to tell you that today we had some family meet at our house and then we all went out for lunch. I had about 20 mintues to whip up a quick dessert for later and I immediately thought of your yummy cookies! I just love that recipe so thank you again for sharing it!
