My mom...

I have met so many great friends in blogging and shared prayer requests and concerns and have a request now for those who share in my faith. My mom is not doing too good lately and she was admitted to the hospital with serious breathing difficulty. I would appreciate your prayers for her and my dad, who is in a nursing home. Momma usually spends her days at my dad's side, and being apart is difficult for both of them. I know she will get through this, but I pray that she will be able to walk well enough without oxygen to return to my Dad's side. Mom and Dad have been married 62 years and it is very hard for them both to be apart.

Just a followup - thank you so much for your prayers. My mom is doing better and was up and walking in the halls today. Her spirits are much better and we all see the improvement in her breathing, speech and hope in her eyes. Thank YOU!!



I have not gotten much sewing done the last couple of weeks, but did manage to finish tying my Jingle Bell Twist quilt and it is waiting on the binding now. Felicia likes it just fine without the binding.

I will be thinking of all of you. It must be so hard on both of them being apart, plus equally hard on you to watch. Hang in there! They are so lucky to have you watching out for them.

...and of course I had to comment on Felicia is very cute. She's right you know, cats find no need for binding! hee. ;) *karendianne.
