Still Rolling with the Flow – Aug. 14, 2009
It’s been a while and I am still here. Boy, I am getting old. I have been so busy that I am not sure if I am coming or going. Busy with what? Life. As you all know, things do not happen, one thing at a time. It all happens at once. And right now, I’m glad I did not plant a garden this year. And at times, TommieLynn has to remind me to eat. Why, because I honestly forget too. You mom’s should understand this very well. Often times there are more things to do, than time to do them.
It’s been very hot and sticky here for a while. One day, I went and sat in the food barn with the AC for about an hour. When I came out, my glasses fogged up and they started dipping water. And then I was hotter than when I went in. I am looking forward to fall weather. 🙂
TommieLynn has started school and loves it. She is still not sure about this thing they call “homework”, and can’t seem to figure out why she has to do it, when she did school work all day. How do you explain homework, to a home schooler, who never had it before? But she has been doing it and doing a great job. She really likes all her teachers.
This is her first day of public school. Thank you S.S. from MI, for the clothes, shoes, book bag, and school supplies, they were a great blessing.
A week ago today, TommieLynn was attacked by a red nose pit bull dog. A long story, main points being, for two weeks owners said it didn’t bite, they called TommieLynn into their yard to pet the dog, dog attacked her. We spent 4 hours in ER, dog did not have current shots. The dog got her nose good. And she still loves dogs. But they all don’t like her, as this is her second dog attack.
The dog also put a bite in her mouth, on the top of her gums.
Gabby is growing as fast as the grass in my yard. She smiles all the time. But her days and nights are still mixed up. She is now over 9 pounds, and 24 inches long. And she’s the house ham.
This is our drama queen and she knows it.
Tasha had her gallbladder taken out earlier this week. She is now still sore and tired.
My classes are still going great. As of today, I am holding high A’s in all three classes. The last four papers I have written, I had gotten a 100% on. How that happened, I still do not know. And I’m waiting for the teachers to send me an e-mail to say they made a mistake. 🙂 Thank you all for your prayers.
In my down moments, I’ll say I just can’t do it ( after 6 hours of just reading with more to do or one week to write a paper). TommieLynn will pipe up and say, ” I know you can do it, mom”, with a smile on her face. I will ask her to suspend me from school, and she’ll just laugh and say “no, you have work to do.” Boy, the Lord really blessed me with her. Now we will see what happens when I use her words on her, when she has homework. 🙂
And boy am I going to get plenty of practice on writing papers, 4-6 papers due every two weeks. This is way out of my comfort zone. I know there will come a day in the future when this will no longer bother me. Maybe, just maybe, writing all those papers will help me write that book Tommy and you all wanted me to do. I am being stretched, remolded, and refined. What does the Lord have in store for me? And will He give me any hints along the way?
Well it is time to hit the books again. Thank you all for your prayers.
Have a great day.
