Still here....


What a week! And it's already Sunday night... time to start another week. We had a very rough week at work this past week.... very emotional, very heartbreaking stuff! But we have to keep going! We had tornadoes in our area this week. We were able to practice our tornado drill at work, which included placing all residents in the halls with their doors closed. Most of them seemed to actually enjoy it.... a break from the monotony of nursing home life. There was a sense of excitement in the air throughout the whole ordeal. I read something today that spoke to me: When you get tired of suffering from trying to do your own will, maybe you should turn it over to God and seek His will. There is a lot going on in my world and I hope I can recognize God's will in all this! This picture was taken several years ago when we were living in Western NC. This was the view from my front porch after a big rain. If you look closely, you can see the little creek below was flooded. We have a creek running beside our house now, that also floods with heavy rains. With the bad weather we had on Wednesday, it flooded once again, but thankfully it has never risen as high as our house sits on the lot. God is good!

I was wondering if that was your little creek now.. thought maybe it was taken from the front yard and so the barn was not in the picture...now that you said it was in the mountains I know where...

I've thought of you ever since we spoke. I sure hope this week goes better at work. That will be my prayer for you.

Love you all the time!!

Hi Penny, I was thinking about you this week. After learning how to take care of my elderly Mama, I can't imagine working in a nursing home. It takes a special person and I'm sure you are just that special! Hope your life is going well outside of work too.

I hope this coming week will be better for you - there is so much to burden us all that we do indeed need to turn it over to God - thanks for the quote - it was perfect. Hang in there - we're all here for you!
