Good Morning!

Update on our sweet dog is his heart. Boo! We took him back to the doctor and his lungs were no better. He has a heart murmur due to old age. He will have to take a diuretic every day and during the hot summer months he will have to live inside because he can't breathe good outside. Man...I just really don't want an inside dog! But we will have one now because we love us some Shug and don't want anything to happen to him. He is precious!

I've been a wild woman. I have been working in my classroom every day it seems. I am almost finished though and I love it. I think it's the cutest classroom I've had so far. A very talented lady from our community painted me a mural on the outside of my door and one on the inside where it is our reading area. I will have to take pictures and let you see what it looks like.

Rhizo, next week this time there will be 10 Rhizo Kids families from around the world here in Centre, AL. All of the hard work is finally coming together and going to result in an international conference in Centre, AL and it is going to be pulled off by two mommas fighting for their kids lives. One of the mommas AKA me...has already lost her child's life to RCDP but the other momma still has her inspiration. We encourage the doctors to rush, rush, rush, because our children can't wait. We cannot keep losing our children to RCDP!!!

I think things are together. I am such a procrastinator that I just can't stress about it until next week. Weird, huh?!? I'm sure there are many lose ends to be tied and many errands to be run but I'm just waiting. Oh me...I hope it all comes together. There will be 10 Rhizo Kids families and 8 doctors/researchers/nutritionist here fighting for our kids lives. My prayer is that God guides my tongue and I don't lash out at the doctors because they didn't find the cure quick enough for Ian. Please join me in this prayer because I seriously can see me saying things that simply aren't necessary out of anger and hurt.

Sunday is Father's Day...another first around our house that I don't look forward to. Men are so different from women though. I admitted how hard Mother's Day was for me and I was in a pit for days if not weeks before Mother's Day. Wae doesn't seem to think it will be hard but I know men try to be tough no matter the circumstances. I can't wait until he is the daddy of a wild healthy "herd" of children running around our house with Shug tagging along behind. I know he will be the best dad who doesn't take a single second for granted and I know he will love our kids more than anything in the world. I can't wait until the day God decides to bless us with healthy children.

Well, I better go. I have a lot of Rhizo Kids errands to run that have come to my attention as I have been typing this post. Ugh...I didn't write any of them down so you better bet I've already forgotten the majority of the errands. Maybe my memory will come back and I'll accomplish something today for Rhizo Kids. I hope you all have a blessed weekend and my prayer for you on Father's Day is that you know just how blessed you are to be a father. Don't take it for granted...

  1. You are so right about Mother's Day! I hate that it even exists and wish everyone in my family would ignore it. Doesn't bother Dad on Father's Day! He just plays golf and goes right along as if nothing has changed.

    Think of you often and missed seeing you while you were busy with the conference. What great work you do!
