The surgery will be Febuary 26th, at the U of M.

Thank you for your prayers.  We are doing good. We are resting in God for the surgery and recovery. It will be a long road, but we have lots of friends and family to walk with us. It is great to hear stories of other people who have gone through this.

Hubby and I  spent the morning in a meeting and then ran to “Sams” to get candy bars for Bitty. She will be selling candy bars again this year for her church youth group. This afternoon I did some work in the sewing room hemming some of hubbies pants and fixing one of Bubba’s shirts. The sewing room is starting to look more like a room again and less like a dump. One of these days I may have the desk cleaned off enough to do some scrapbooking again.

Bitty is making bars for tonight’s family night at church. The kitchen smells wonderful, maybe I will stay home and eat them all myself.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Happy anniversary

The 14th was our 15th anniversary. We have been known to be on vacation for our anniversary since it is the middle of January, but this year we chose to spend a couple hours with the brain surgeons. We got a lot of info about the surgery and recovery. The surgeons are very informative. This is what they do, they take apart people’s heads and put them back together.

We went out to dinner at “Enjoy”, a really nice romantic restaurant and went to see “avatar”. It was a really good movie. The graphics were done really well.

The next 4 weeks will be very busy. Hubby will be trying to get some really good sales people to run the company for him while he is in recovery.

I am very thankful that we are back in Minnesota for this. We have our church family to surround us with help and prayer. We will be scheduling meals through our small group. I will be posting updates and other general stuff here on the blog and on facebook.

I appreciate all the prayers.

Ps. I have still been spinning and still knitting. The yarn is Candy’s blue, she did a wonderful job dying it. I love the color, it would make a beautiful shawl.

My husband has an “Acoustic Neuroma” (a brain tumor).

He will be going in for surgery in February. He will be in the hospital for about 10 days, and off work for 3- 6 months.

I really appreciate your prayers as we deal with yet another challenge in our lives. Besides intervention, healing and recovery and all those wonderful prayers, please pray that God continues to reveal his plan to us, how he is working in our lives and show us the outcome of those works that bring honor and glory to him and that we continue to recognize his blessings through everything.

why I am so happy

In October we went on vacation to Rapid City. I took yarn. I had enough for a sweater, I measured and added. I started the sweater. I got 4/5ths done with the sweater. It was beautiful. I was out of yarn. I searched the internet and found no yarn. It was discontinued of course, and mom(who I had borrowed the yarn from) didn’t have any more. I was crushed. The sweater has been sitting in a bag since we got home waiting to be ripped out. I didn’t have the nerve to rip the whole thing out.

I found someone on Ravelry who had some, and she sent me hers. I immediately grabbed my sweater and finished it. I love it, the color, the fit. I think it is already my favorite sweater.
