Saturday Meditations - Joys and Concerns , , ,
If I haven't thanked all my followers for following me - THANK YOU. I try to answer each and every comment in an email rather then on my blog - I'm not sure if people go back to read it or not. So send me your email or blog address and I'm there. Welcome to my new gals - my journey with blogging has taken me around the wonderful United States of America - England, Australia, and more. I am beginning to 'learn' more about the world and I just love that. Each day I can honestly tell you I learn something I didn't know - so for that I thank you too.
I have got to talk to someone from Germany, from Illinois my old home state, and from Australia yesterday - and she talks kind of funny! lol I've have met so many wonderful women and even a couple men. And you know what? You are all great people.
It is so funny as the news is always filled with so much bad news about people - but the world is filled with good people we never hear about.
This week has been hard for me underneath all this joy - as one of my nearest and dearest friends might be dying. She is 53. She lives in Roanoke Virginia - we used to work together before she moved there, she woke up last Monday sick as a dog and thought she was having a heart attack. The ambulance got her - her gallbladder leaked into the stomach, she developed pancreatitis, and now is suffering from an infection in her lungs and she is sedated and they are having an extremely hard time trying to remove the breathing tube so far - it doesn't look good - her name is Debbie - so if you would say a little prayer for her I'd appreciate it.
Life is never fair and full of unkind surprises. But it does go on . . . and you still have to make the best of it. My heart is heavy.
Now to Texas where the Superbowl is - sounds like you have a mess going on there . . . with all that snow - good luck.
A thought for the day:

A little laughter:
I want to end this with the biggest thank you ever - I have met so many wonderful friends on here and you are a big part of my life. I love you. Sandie
