Thankfulness




Hello, Dear Ones.
I haven't been around for a few days.
Those of you who follow me on FaceBook know my little Mother gave us a scare Saturday morning.
We thought she had suffered a stroke and called 911.
She was taken to the ER and all the tests began.
We were so relieved to know she had not had a stroke or a heart attack.

She was so nervous, confused and just out of her head.
To make my long story short - she had an urinary track infection and that caused the confusion.
The confusion was so much that she was only able to jabber and not talk.
Well, I have learned a few things these past few days of how even the smallest infection and other things can react differently in the elderly and can bring on terrible confusion and stroke like symptons.

Hopefully tomorrow she will be going to rehab to regain her mobility and then back to her little apartment in the retirement home where she lives.

I want to thank you all for your prayers. God is so good and I still have my little Mother who will be 90 in June!


Hopefully you'll leave with a smile on your face as I just have to leave you with a sweet Easter snap of my little Carter.
Her little Easter dress was from Mr. Precious and me.

I'll see you all in a few days when things get settled with Mother.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Give Thanks

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

Give thanks with a grateful heart

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

And now let the weak say, "I am strong"
Let the poor say, "I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us"

Give thanks with a grateful heart

Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son
