You ladies are awesome!
Thank you for your prayers and kind comments,
and I know my family appreciates them so much, also!
My MIL reads my blog and browses through many others,
and the first thing she asked Wednesday evening was,
....please ask your blogging friends to pray.
She thinks ya'll are amazing too!
My SIL, is scheduled for a stress test this morning, so please continue to keep her in your prayers. From experience, I am a firm believer in prayer and it's power.
I won't be back until Monday.
Josh's 18th Birthday is this weekend, so I hope you all have a great weekend!

Just a Note....Blogger has dropped many names from my blog roll list sometime in the last few weeks, and I have got to update it. So, if your name is not there, I apologize and it will be corrected very soon! Please don't think that I deleted you!

Hugs, Rhonda :)

Morning Rhonda! I'm sorry your loved ones are having health problems and/or are in pain! My best wishes to both of them for a solution and quick recovery too! Having high BP myself I know how scarey it is everytime you don't feel well; you always wonder about the heart! I hope you can find a moment this weekend to relax and de-stress a little! Best Wishes again to your family! Sincerely, Jeannette
