My Sister-In-Law is finally crowned.....some updates
Some updates......Please check the previous post to see if your package has been mailed or received. I updated the information today.Swap packages are being mailed. I will mail most today. Can't wait ti lyou see how cute these are. I will post pictures soon. Remember they are tagged so that you know who made the items. Feel free to remove those tags as they look a little crazy with so many things hanging from them. You may not like how I made them into banners......feel free to assemble the way you want to. I attached with glue dots or by sewing, so you could disassemble easily.
Spring starts tomorrow but it is still cold......hoping for warm weather soon.
Today I had a routine blood work up. Now off to the post office and then something I really don't want to do. I am going to the hospital to see my young friend while she is visiting her dad. I really don't know her dad. He is one (Gene) that I asked you to pray for. He had stomach cancer and has been in the hospital almost constantly since November . He lost his job because he couldn't return to work. They are living on what my friend makes and they don't even have grocery money. Well he has days to live now. They originally told him his cancer wasn't terminal. That's the sad part of all of this. I don't want to go to the hospital but my friend wants people to visit. The visit went well. I prayed when I got there for strength. The room was full the whole time I was there. No tears. Somewhat like a celebration. Gene was thin and frail but very alert and when I walked in he said are you her for Ashley.....my friend (She is 25 nd you know I am old). I didn't think he even knew me. He shook my hand. What a sweet man. I can see why they want company now. He is in the Hospice wing. Someone left to go get him some gingerale. They came in to see if he wanted anything. They are so nice. I am really glad that I pushed myself to go. I know that it meant alot. He shook my hand when I left.
Enjoy every moment of every day.
