I'm Glad this Week is DONE!

Hello Company Girls!

First of all, I would like to thank all who visited my blog last Friday and offered those sweet words of encouragement and prayer...it truly lifted and touched my heart...and if you read my post on Monday you will see how the Lord Himself actually reminded me and gave me hope and renewed my faith....God is still there...all the time....just need the reminder!


Today is DDO day.....that's Don's Day Off.......every other Friday hubby has the day off since they extended his workday hours for the previous two weeks...it works out great for us since normally we have great difficulty getting out on our own without teens sulking cause we're going someplace that they're not! Right now, we're trying to figure out what we want to do...usually we already have it all planned out...but..this week we're undecided.....we do have to do the grocery shopping today, which, in itself, is a big job!

On the Emma front.....she unpacked her laundry basket that she had filled to a large mound to move with her to her friends...by unpack, I mean she dumped everything all over her bedroom floor.....the Normal Look for Emma's room......she does seem to be in a better mood....exams start today and I didn't see her study at all so who knows how that'll turn out....

Eldest daughter and I are deep into plans for a dinner/movie fund raiser at our church for February 13th.....we're hoping that people come out and support the cause which is for the missionaries that our church supports. We're doing a simple lasagna dinner and the movie sounds really good.....it's called 'Straight from the Heart'...I want to get to Costco really soon to check out what's available so we can keep our costs for the meal to a minimum but still do it up nicely.

Wee grandson William is still giving his parents a lot of sleepless nights...hopefully they get some relief soon...he reminds me of my eldest daughter who only slept for 20 minutes at a time....(people always said newborns just slept and ate...not with her!) I imagine a lot of you have experienced the same thing but it is difficult when it's your first time, to be sure!

My sister and brothers and I had a little gathering with my mom and dad last night to see if they'll consider getting some home care to come in to help out...my poor mom, who spends a lot of time 'in a muddle' declared that they were doing just fine and didn't need a thing! This is going to be difficult but I think by the end of the meeting we had them at least considering it.

So, that's things in a nut shell....I certainly join the rest of you, I'm sure, in praying for Rachel's dear SIL Shawn.....what a trying and difficult road to travel on for her and her husband.....will be praying that they get all the love and encouragement and support that they need at this time.

Have a good weekend, ladies!

Teenagers... so sorry. I was a real pain myself at that time. But by college (when I had to pay for all my bills) I was really nice to my parents again. Hang it there!

Look forward to hearing about your movie and lasagna night at church. I hope ours does the same. Last year they played Fireproof.

Have fun at Costco. We only have Sams here and it's not as fun.

Just read last Friday's and Monday's post, the Lord is good. Whenever things like that happen I always laugh at myself and say "why was I anxious, God knows the plan."

Enjoy your husband's day off.

My husband is owed a fair bit of time off in lieu of overtime he worked, so we could have some days together, BUT they really need him in all the time in order to get projects finished on time. Maybe later in the year. . .

I hope all begins to settle for you soon! Have a wonderful weekend...

You had a busy week. Good luck on your dinner plans. Sounds like fun. It is hard I know when babies don't sleep well. Our gbaby is usually so good but a couple of weeks ago he was teething and slept fitfully that night. My daughter got no sleep. BTW thanks for coming over visiting me today.
Have a Blessed Weekend

DDO - I love it! My husband Brian works Sundays (he's a pastor) so he gets Monday off, and we love having that down time together during the week. I haven't been able to fanagle a weekend trip anywhere yet, but hopefully that's coming soon!

Sounds like you've had a very full week. I hope this weekend has been fun and relaxing for you!

Thanks for stopping by!

I have a feeling we were probably all that messy as teenagers - I know I was! Good luck with Emma (and good luck to her on her exams)!

Glad to hear your heart is resting easier this week. I'm continually amazed by the little ways that God shows us His love. I think that the man with the picture of your son was such a good reminder of God's faithfulness to us and to our children. I hope that you had an enjoyable and relaxing day with your husband.

I'm glad things are settling a bit! The movie night sounds fun! Wish I lived closer, I would totally come and hang with ya'll!

Keeping you in my prayers this week!
