It's Friday and the day we take all the bits and pieces of our week and throw them out there for you to enjoy. Thanks to the Unknown Mami for hosting Friday Fragments for the summer while Mrs. 4444 takes a break.
We have had a few days of no rain and it has been a welcome relief. The Superhero and I have been able to walk the last six mornings, even though we did get a little sprinkle this morning. Many in our area had flooded homes and businesses.....places that aren't in flood zones and don't usually flood. My heart goes out to everyone who had water in their homes!
Which brings me to a pet peeve.......there were lots of rainbows after the rain.....reminding us that the only thing the rainbow stands for is a promise from God.....that's all.
Two dear friends had birthdays this week. Happy Birthday to Sharon.......an old friend.....and Emily.....a young friend. I use old in the nicest way as Sharon and I are the same age.
Many of you have heard on the news about the two young girls who were injured in a parasailing accident. That was here at our beach and lots of prayers from all over the nation have gone up for these girls and their families.
One of the girls went home yesterday to Indiana and the other remains hospitalized here locally and will be transferred for additional surgery soon.
I watched the video many times and each time I was struck by what a miracle it is that these young girls are alive! They hit.......in very high winds.....a 13 story condo, a power line and crashed down onto some cars in a parking lot. As a parent, I cannot even begin to imagine the horror. So thankful they are recovering! #####Parasailing is unregulated#####just say no!
I had blood drawn this week for my regular physical and stood up for myself and requested I NOT have a particular person who tortures me when she draws blood. I have decided I am at an age where I have to speak up for myself in the health world!
It wasn't a good week for my sweet mama. She had a terribly confusing day Wednesday and it wears both of us completely down!
The way I see mama....
The way those who didn't know her before see her....
I pray God's mercies are new for her every morning!
I haven't had a heard around here comment for a while so here's a new one.....on our walk this morning, I was asking the Superhero if he would show me how to do something on the computer and he looked at me and smiled and said.....you must be the beauty of this outfit because you are NOT the brains! I may or may not have left him wounded on the walking path!
I hope you all have great weekends! I am behind in reading and hope to catch up soon!
