There are 5.4 million people who have Alzheimer's. It cost 183 billion dollars in annual costs. Alz's is the 6th leading cause of death.
To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.
1 John 4: 9-10

Happy Birthday Mom number 83

Mom is 83 today. My sister fed her lemon cake which is her favorite last night after supper. She ate most of it. Last year I don't think she ate as much. I can't believe I have had my blog for over a year. But I wrote a post on mom's birthday last year. Boy time passes fast.
She is doing good. Except her eye is still swollen. The hospice Doctor is coming to see her this week . They wanted me to take her to an eye doc. But I said that would be hard on her and me . Since I sold our wheelchair van it would be really hard. So the hospice doctor is doing a home visit. Hopefully we won't have to take her to the eye doctor.

It is so nice out. We got some much needed rain today. Our yard was all dry. The good thing about that is we don't have to mow the bad thing is it looks really bad.

My son started his Jr year at the University Of Arkansas and I am so proud. He got two grants and Two scholarship's this year. Which means no money out of his pocket for the first time since he started college. We are very happy about that. He even has money left over.
I want to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Labor Day Weekend.


  1. Happy Birthday indeed to your mom and congratulations to you for blogging over a year and your son on his scholarships.

    I have been blogging since early 2009 myself I think. It's so great to have you as a blogging buggy.

  2. A very Happy Birthday to your Mom. Oh lemon cake, sounds delicious.
    Good luck to your son as he starts another year of college.
    Enjoy your day Karen.

  3. Happy Birthday to your Momma, Karen!

    Blessings to your son as he begins another year of school, too!

    The lemon cake sounds YUMMO!


  4. It's good to hear there aren't many changes going on in your life, other than the good news of your son. It's wonderful that he's a junior in college and received financial help.

    Give your mom a big Birthday hug from your blog friend.

    I agree with you; taking your mother would be too hard on both of you!!
    Have a good weekend!

  5. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR MOM!!!!!! cool on the grants how did he get 2? I sure could use another one :) enjoy the weather it is still hot here.

  6. Hi Karen,
    Happy Birthday to your mom. I'm happy to hear that she is doing well and enjoyed her lemon cake.
    You have good reason to be proud of your son. Congratulations to him on his impressive accomplishments.
    Happy Labor Day weekend to you too.

  7. Happy Birthday to your mom and to you. It means that you have blessed her life with loving care for another year. Congratulations to your son. That financial aid is wonderful, especially when it isn't something that has to be paid back. I know how it feels to have them a bit closer to a graduation. You can fluff your feathers as a proud parent!

  8. Lemon cake sounds wonderful! Hope Mom enjoyed it on her birthday. Great news about your son, that's a big help to you.

  9. aww i cant believe its been a year either i hope he sorts her out


Thanks for visiting my blog and I love reading your comments. Please come back soon. Karen
