JUST ONE WISH

I am having some tough times here in Texas
My first night here I came down with a nasty head cold and I have not felt well at all

Mom's 81st Birthday is tomorrow 
and she is doing okay.  I wish I could say the same for my brother
Yesterday was the first chance I've had to see him since he took a turn for the worse and it was sad
We have a hard path ahead of us and we are trying to prepare ourselves
It is not easy

If I had one wish.....

Please keep my brother and my family in your thoughts and prayers

Linda

Sorry your brother is not doing well, Linda. I have several family and friends in very trying health related situations as well. My heart goes out to you.

I am so glad that you reached out for help and prayers from everyone - because when two or more pray for the same thing - I think God hears it faster and louder and knows were serious and in earnest.

You have a big group of friends out there.

Count me in - your cold, your mom, and your dear brother - that must be so hard.

Love and hugs,
sandie

I am catching up on blog reading and sending you big HUGS. I will pray for your brother each and every day. Not easy times but glad you are there to spend more time with him. I can not believe little Tiger is 6 months. He is just adorable! I hope to see you when I get back to ATL. Oh and the goggle post photos were fun to see... and yes the donut photo is way too cute!

while i hold all of my wonderful friends in my prayers, I will especially pray for you and your family these days. I know full well the power of prayer.
After 4 1/2 weeks in the hospital, 2+ weeks in intensive care, my dad is finally doing better. remember the saying...when prayer is all you have, you realize prayer is all you need. So true.
I'm praying sweet friend!
