And The Hits Just Keep Coming!

Well, the title says it all!  First off, let me just say again that I appreciate all of the wonderful comments that you have left me since the last time that I posted.  Your kind words, thoughts, prayers and encouragement mean the world to me and I wouldn’t know what to do without them!!!

On Thanksgiving day, right as we were getting ready to leave to go to mom and dad’s to meet Shawna and the kids so that we could follow them and my parents to my sister’s house, the phone rang.  It was my mom calling to tell me that they had just gotten home from the emergency room.

Dad had gone out to get the newspaper out of the driveway and fell.  He broke his other collarbone this time (and his ribs, we think, even though they said the x-ray didn’t show that they were).  He is in a lot of pain.  Mom said she almost called 911 last night because he was practically screaming from the pain.  They went to his doctor’s office and saw the nurse practitioner and she gave him stronger pain meds and dressed his arm that he had skinned up so bad that it peeled his skin all the way off and now they are afraid it may get infected.

Then I get a crying phone call this afternoon from Penny, I asked what was wrong and she says, “I’m in the hospital”.

Come to find out, Sat or Sun, can’t remember which one she said, she was leaving her son’s house and tripped on the sidewalk outside.  She did what we are always afraid dad’s gonna do, she broke her hip!  Through to sobs and gulping for air, she said that it hurt so bad that she didn’t know what to do but cry.  They took her catheter out today and they’re making her get up and walk to the bathroom!!!!  I know they want to keep that hip from freezing up on her but come on!  She said she cries all of the way there and back ’cause it is excruciating.

God bless them both!!  I feel so bad about it and am helpless to do anything for them.

I’ve had almost 70 visitors to the store but haven’t sold anything yet.  😦  It’s discouraging but I’m being as patient as I can be.  I know that I’m not overpricing things.  Compared to what others are charging on their stuff, I’m way under-priced but I want to start getting customers before profits.  I’m just looking at the positive side of it, at least people are looking at what I have on there!

I am working on some more stuff and I have sent for some books, supplies/tools and DVD tutorials about working with clay to that I can start making my own kaleidoscope canes and such.  I really like working with this type of medium and it’s good for my hands.  I get up all stiff and sore but after I’ve worked with the clay for a while, they loosen up and feel better.  Good therapy I guess.  🙂

I will leave you today with a few quotes to bless and encourage you.

I miss you all very much!

Love, mega hugs and abundant blessings,

  1. God never gives you more than you can handle, T, but he might be pushing it, huh?

    Big hugs and much love you to and your family.

    1. Thank you Hank!! I’m beginning to wonder just how strong He thinks I am 😦 But, I guess He already knows that, doesn’t He?! If I could survive Sara’s dad for 13 years, I guess I can survive anything! I am ready for a break though. I don’t know what I would do without the support of you, my friends, here in the cyber world!!! Mega hugs and much love to you and yours too! I appreciate you more than I can ever say and your friendship is vital to my sanity these days, thank you so much!!!!!!!

    1. Thank you Francine!! I know you’re right about that but it’s hard to keep it in perspective some days 😦 Thank you so much for always being there for me with your support and prayers! It means the world to me. xxxxxxxxxx

  2. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great things, which thou knowest not. Jeremiah 33:3. It is hard to understand sometimes why God has us go through so much at once but in His time we will know , just stay strong in prayer my friend and I will do like wise for all concerned and all will be well. God Bless and Keep all of you. Much love and you are missed~Len

    1. Thank you dear, dear friend of mine!!! I think I’m in the middle of my own little hurricane here lately! I do hope it will pass by soon though. I hope you and Al are doing okay! I haven’t been able to check up on you lately but you are never too far from my thoughts. much love xxxxxxxxxxxx

    1. Thank you Karen!!!!! I still have some fingernails left to dig in with! Though sometimes I wonder how much more pressure they can take before they snap off, lol! Just kidding, I’m okay, what choice do I have – right?! I’m not going to roll over at this stage of my life 🙂 Your support is much appreciated! I would be lost without all of you. xxxxxxxxxx

  3. Ooh my dear mummy dearest! i just don’t know where to start, i just so wish i was close enough to you to give you a huge big mega giant bear hug! But i guess i will have to settle and do it over the internet. :-).. I’m sending you my prayers for your whole family and for your business. Do not get discouraged, you might be starting off slow with not much sales but i’m sure after some time people will start paying the big bucks for your gorgeous creations. Maybe they are still just trying to get a feel for you and your store. i wish you nothing but happiness, health and success during these coming holidays and always know that you have many people who care about you, albeit from afar but we all still love you dearly. xoxoxoxoxo!!!

    1. Oh Abigirl, you made me cry!! Thank you so much sweethearted girl!!!!!!!! That comment, especially today, means more to me than you could possibly know 🙂 You just made my day so much brighter. I miss you all very much. My internet service has been all screwed up for the last month. I can barely even get a connection to hold for more than just enough time to check my e-mails and my store for orders and then I lose it. I have cried many tears of frustration in the last few weeks 😦 Hopefully, I’m praying, they will resolve my issues today with the new SIM card they are giving me. If that doesn’t work, they are going to replace my communication device. I will probably have to send this reply 10 times before it even goes through but I had to try it, frustration or not, ’cause you deserve an answer to that beautiful and heartfelt comment. That’s not to say that others don’t deserve replies and they will get them once we get this stupid thing fixed. I love you dearly, as if you were my own and I’ll take those bear hugs even if they are just cyber ones!! I tried several times to get a comment through to you on your latest poem, without success, but wanted to say that it was great! Hot and steamy that one was, but great nonetheless! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

      1. Thank you so much, im so glad i could make your day a lil bit brighter.. If i could i would do it everyday. All my love and huggs and mega kisses to you. 🙂
