Prayer Warriors

Prayer... we could definitely use some prayers today and tomorrow.

Tomorrow Liam is scheduled to get tubes in his ears.  I know it's a very routine procedure, but of course any time it's surgery there is always a risk.

On top of that, yesterday morning Olivia came to me to show me a large "pimple" on her leg.  You may remember two summers ago she ended up in the hospital with surgery for a similar infection on her abdomen that QUICKLY became so bad she could barely walk.  She's a little freaked to say the least (as am I).  We drained it and applied antibiotic cream, but it seems to have a large area surrounding it under the skin which is what worries me.  I have a workshop all day today so am going to try to take her to the doctor tomorrow afternoon, with groggy Liam along.

THEN, to top it off, our dog Percy started limping on his front paw last night.  It wasn't horrible and I really prayed he would sleep it off.  BUT, it seems worse this morning.  No clue what is going on with that.  He will barely put weight on it.  I tried taking him out but he wouldn't go to the bathroom.  Tried taking him to his water bowl but wouldn't drink.  He just wants to be by me and lay down.  I don't know what to do with everything else going on.  He seems warm to me too, but could be my imagination.  I could take him in Saturday, but worry that would be late. :(

We could really use some prayers!

Praying for you all! As for the dog that has happened to ours before and it just turned out she sprained or twisted something and it did get better after a couple of days but you never know I suppose. Wish I lived closer and could atleast help with the dog. Hang in there!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
