A Gift

On Jan.5th late night we got the call that they had a heart. Jim looked like he was going to just faint the day had come. Haydee went in surgery on the morning of the 6th to get a wonderful gift.


Jim captured this moment of mother and daughter just before Haydee went to get her gift. No words just the look of love.
They had to keep Haydee asleep for awhile to let her body and new heart get use to each other. They started to wake her on the 13th Jim could hardly wait to look into those beautiful blue eyes and now see the life they will have together.

She is doing really well still a long road but the road just got a lot smoother. She can hardly wait to get up and start working to get her strength back. I'm excited to see how she grows in the Lord. 
It has been an emotional trip being here I'll be going home next week a lot happier than when I came here. I hope that I was a help to my son to help him not feel so alone. I will miss him more than I can say. Hopefully it won't be long until they can come and visit us now that Haydee will able to travel. 
Until Later,
Holly

A Heart

We got the call last night that they may have a heart for Haydee. After all the test they decided it was a go. Haydee was in surgery all night and now has a new heart. This is such wonderful news for us. The next few days are critical. So we are still in a wait and see but it's more hopeful than it has been. I would ask that you would still pray for her that her body will accept the heart as hers and that she will recover fast. Thank you all that have been praying for her.
Until Later,

West Meets East

Well I'm still here in Connecticut and I will tell you I miss the west. The people here are so different the nicest people I have meet aren't from here. I guess that doesn't say much for the people of Connecticut, some might say they act a little uppity.  Don't even try and talk to these people about what's really going on they just don't want to hear it. So I sit here looking at this beautiful county I think when the SHTF so many of these people will be saying "what happen". Wondering why no one told them, or how could I have been so blind. I feel as if I'm in Panem from Hunger Game and anyone who has read those books knows how the people of the Capital act that's here. Is really is sad. I just hope that I'm out of here before the SHTF as well as Jim and Haydee if she makes it.

On a side note Haydee is about as stable as she can be but really need a heart and soon. So please pray for her. 
Until Later

Winter

This is what I woke up to the other day while I'm here in Connecticut. I guess I'll get to have snow I was able to shovel snow for the first time in years and believe it or not I enjoyed it. I have missed the snow so much it's all I remember it to be.





Until Later

100+ DAYS

Well what can I say I have neglected my blog beyond reason. This year has gone by so fast I can't believe it is almost over. Back in June my son Jim got married to a lovely girl named Haydee. She has spent most of their married life in the hospital so I would ask that you keep her in your prayers. I canceled my giveaway since I will not be here for awhile I'm heading back east to spend some time with them and help out where I can. I'll take my computer so can keep in touch with people. Please pray that everything will work out and Haydee will get what she needs to get better.
Until Later.

View from the tub

When my kids were little they always had to come and talk to me when I was in the tub. I thought "Oh Well when they get older I'll get to be alone in the tub". That didn't happen even when they were in high school they would sit on bed while I was in the tub. I thought "Oh Well when they leave the house I'll be alone". Well that is the only time I get to be alone cause when they come to visit guess what they come to talk to me, and just so he doesn't miss out even Wate comes in once in awhile. Once I had grandkids I thought maybe they won't come in. I was wrong K always comes in to tell how I need bubbles or a toy or washcloth. I never knew I was taking a bath wrong all these years. I thank God everyday I have her to tell me the right way. Got to love the wisdom of little one. Bath time is for play not just relaxing.









I just love this girl.

Music

When I was a kid and we would go to our grandma's, when she would put us to bed she would always sing us a song. She would ask what song do we want to hear we would tell her the one with the baby asleep on the hay.


I love this memory so much I would sing to my kids "You are my Sunshine" Now I sing to my grand kids and what do they want me to sing when I ask them K says doe a deer. So that's what I sing her over an over got to learn a new song.

Do you sing to your kids or grand kids I'd love to hear about it. Remember to check out my giveaway and how to enter here.

Pin Making and a Giveaway

Well here we go I can't believe how easy these first two were to make.

Here is the Pin for these redneck wine glasses and here is how to make them. I am sorry the pictures aren't the best my camera isn't the best just a point and shoot sometime I can get good pics most of the time not. But these glasses came out GREAT Valondra wants some so I need to make a run to the dollar store for the candle sticks. This a must try.

Here is the pin for these time out bottles, here is a blog about these you might like since my bottles are smaller than the pin I just cut everything in half and they came out so cool I may put myself in time out. I made these for my grand kids when they come over. They came out so pretty I can sit and look at them and dream. I shake them all day long.
                                                              GIVE AWAY
Now for the give away this is going to be a little different. Since this year I want to work my way through Pinterest and will be doing many different crafts.

In November at thanksgiving K and Ann will each draw a name and we'll have 2 winners. Now you may be asking what am I giving away I'll be putting some of the things I'm making some I'll give away some I won't, I'm not telling so this coming December two of you will be getting a surprise package from me of things I've made during the year.

2012 to 2013

As this year end and the new one starts I'm making plans for what I'll be doing. I love Pinterest can waste many hours there. But let me ask you how many of you do any of things that you've pined. This next year I'm going to work my way through Pinterest I have made a few things and will blog about them. I have made these Lasagna Cupcakes from leftover spaghetti sauce it's a great way to use leftovers. So this next year will be pin fun. Stay tune for an announcement of a give away in the next few days I'm  hoping it will be fun a one.

Until Later,

365x3=

Well this has been a year in the making I joined the joy dare over at A Holy Experience were you count your joys, gifts, things your thankful for three things a day at the end of the year you'll have 1000+ thing. I wanted to do something different to record all my gifts. So I made a smash,junk journal for them. It came out so good I plan on doing another one for 2013. I know what your thinking now what do you do with it since there were a couple of pages left I'm writing a letter to my grand daughter K when she turns 16 I'll give her the book so she can see all the little things in life to be thankful for. Next years will go to Ann. I think this is a wonderful idea for them to see how thankful I am for them for they are in many of the pages. This journey has taught me many things how to be thankful in the mist of tragedy and hard times. I'm looking forward to what the next years blessing will be. If you want to try it for your self pop over to A Holy Experience and down load all the months and start counting I'd love to hear how it goes for you.




Until Later,
