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

The Sun is Shining.

I am so glad to see the sun shining today. Have not seen it in weeks. I am also praying for my neighbors to the south with the tornado breakout last night. Be safe all.
Mom is napping. She does not know or care the sun is shining. She did yell a few times during one of our many thunderstorms this week when there was a big blast of thunder. So that got her attention.
  I will get her up around 4 to get her ready for supper. I made stir fry for lunch. But mom would never be able to eat that. And it would not puree very well. I have to figure out a nice supper that mom can eat. Maybe mashed potatoes and Salsbury steak. Sounds good. And it will puree. Looks nasty but taste ok. Fattening I know . But mom needs a little fat on her. I sure don't . I will just take a little bit unpureed.

I have to brag on my son. He got a summer internship at the Arkansas Transportation Dept. Which pays nicely and than he also got accepted in the study abroad program for next yr. So it is off to Spain. All in the same week. And he is at a bridge building competition right now. Go UofA Civil Engineering !!!! Bring home the trophy.


  1. Congratulations to your son. : )
    We have crazy weather. Rain one minute, sun the next, rain again with a tornado warning and the back to sun.

  2. I was so happy to hear that y'all escaped the awful weather!

  3. I'm glad to hear about the sun shining! It looks pretty horrible in your neighbour states though ... Congratulations with your son, you must be very proud! Off to Spain ... I'm happy my eldest is coming home next week sunday, he was in California for 10 weeks. Good luck with preparing tasty meals for your mum, lots of greetings, Inge

  5. Congratulations to your son on his internship and acceptance to study abroad. My son did a study abroad semester in the fall in Australia. Such a wonderful experience for these young guys.
    Glad to hear you escaped the storms and hope the sun is continuing to shine.

FUN,,,, have a great week Karen.
