Thirteen Things about This Week

1…. Rob came through his surgery fine. The tear in his rotator cuff was much worse than the doctor had thought and he has a lot of physical therapy ahead of him, but he his home and that's always good. The doctor wasn't as hopeful about his recovery as Barb and Rob expected, but they know the Great Physician and we are all standing on His promise and expecting a full recovery.

2. BooMama is doing a wonderful thing for Kelli at Living In Grace. Kelli is needing a kidney transplant and BooMama has arranged through Amazon for people like you and me to make a financial contribution on behalf of Kelli. You don't have to make a large contribution, in fact the minimum amount is $1.50. However if you are in a position to give more I know that would be appreciated. You can read more about Kelli and her situation on this post of BooMama's, or click the button on my sidebar.

3. Winter temperatures have arrived. It has been much colder the last couple of days. It was 36 when I woke this morning, but the wind chill was 29. However it is suppose to be 60 today but the wind is 25 to 35 mph.

4. I'm still requesting prayer for my son, Kyle, and his family. They are wanting to move back to Arkansas from Georgia, but they need to sell their home first. They live in a small town and there doesn't seem to be much real estate activity, so it has been frustrating.

5. Hooray! I have already started getting ready for taxes. This is quite a
a feat for me, as sometimes I put this off....waaaaayyy too long!

6. I've starting the "Read The Bible in Ninety Days" Bible Study that Lori started yesterday. I have never done a bible study on-line before, so I am having to learn how to maneuver the "group" site as well. Pray for me as I attempt this, with the tax thing going on at the same time and everything.

7. I got my office files all changed out and started for the new year.

8. I still have to get my office back in order and things put away though.

9. My husband and FIL are completing another apartment this week, probably today. It will be so good to have money coming in instead all going out.

10. I haven't done so well on my walking challenge that Nancy is hosting. As a matter of fact I haven't made it to the treadmill once. See what I mean, that tax stuff just gets in the way of having fun!!

11. Next Monday, January the 15th, my grandson, Ethan, will be 4-years-old. I sure do miss him being here everyday.

12. Boy I wouldn't know anything if it wasn't for BooMama. She has just announced that Susie over at Bluebird Blogs is also donating 20% of any design order she receives from January 11th thru January 21st to Kelli. So if you have been thinking of getting a new blog design now is the time. You get a new look and you can help Kelli too! There are so many wonderful people so willing to help one another it just blesses my heart!!

13. Click right over to Blessed Beyond Measure and check out the list of books that Bev has been ordering for the bookstore. You may find one, or two, or three.... you may be interested in.

Hey Cheryl,
I know how busy life can be. As far as the walking challenge goes, you can log as little as 1/4 mile; every little bit counts. Maybe in the morning you can get on the treadmill for ten minutes. :)
Anyway, I'm glad you are participating and thanks for posting about it! We are in it together. :)

Kyle and his family are now on my prayer list, Cheryl. And I'm happy to report that Rob is amazing me. Four days out of surgery, he said phooey to the pain medication and he's doing really well. We both dread the physical therapy but we're ready to show that surgeon he doesn't know who he's dealing with.

Poor Rob is suffering more from boredom now than anything else. The poor guy can't DO anything.

Thank you for your sweet, sweet support of us. What a nice Thursday Thirteen this is.
