New Look and Prayers Needed



32

That is the number of BLOGS that I have in my reader. I'm fortunate that not all of those folks update daily or even weekly. And I thank you...my family thanks you. Archie thinks I just like nosing in on other people's families, but that isn't the case. Most (99.9%) of the BLOGS that I read are friends.

The reason that I know how many BLOGS there are is because I had to lovingly copy and paste each one into my reader after I changed my lay-out.

Please keep my family in your prayers. My Grandfather suffered multiple strokes last week and lost some control in his left leg. He is doing quite well and will be transported to a rehabilitation center soon. On the same day, my Uncle had a seizure at the grocery store and tests later confirmed that he has terminal cancer. He has 3 to 12 months left in his life. My cousin that needed prayers last month is having the pins removed from his toes this week and will hopefully find out what is causing the feeling to still be gone in his lower leg and foot. It's a lot for a family to bear and prayers are greatly appreciated.

As my Aunt so poignantly put it; stay away from tobacco, land mines and cholesterol.

Your new layout is beautiful:)

You KNOW I will keep your family in my prayers. I think of Johnny daily and pray for him. Is this the same Grandad who sent me that sweet e-mail? Keeping your whole family in my thoughts and prayers, Lisanne!

Love you!

I love the new layout! It's so cute. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. My granny suffered a stroke(well 3 actually) and she had to learn how to walk all over again. It's really hard to see someone you love so much, go from a vibrant woman to child like in seconds, it seemed!
Keep your head up and think positive. AND, if you need anyone to vent to,cry with, or whatever, you let me know ;)
