Back in the Saddle Again!

Well....I can't belive how much time has passed since I last posted. Has it really been since April??? I don't know where the time has gone. I apologize for being gone so long and I miss visiting with my dear blogger friends.
The last 3 months have been a whirlwind. Dealing with family health issues...in and out of the ER and ICU with my dad who has a serious blood disease kept me spinning and from there to dealing with local issues regarding a possible dam being built in our area that would have  put our home along with many other homeowners under 400 feet of water. I spent the better part of a month dealing with local officials and enviromental groups trying to make the public aware of what was going on in our area. Very frustrating and mind boggeling that tearing up this beautiful area that we live in and uprooting people from their homes was even a consideration for these government officials.
 So..... after a much needed quickie vacation to the Oregon coast for a little R & R after 2 months of stress and upheavel I am happy to say that I am "Back In the Saddle Again" ;-) Ready to post some new things of late...and catch up with all of you.
Sometimes we get side tracked by "Life" and what it throws our way...but I am thankful that I have the almighty God there with me every step of the way giving me the strength I need to work thru lifes curveballs. He is my rock and fortress!!!

Thank you so much Dessa! After 2 1/2 years of weekly blood transfusions it is like he has had a complete about face. We feel it is a miracle from God. Thank you for asking...he has been doing great here recently. Anxious to pop on over and see what you have been up to. Great to hear from you! Have a wonderful day!!! ;-)
