Good afternoon sweet friends!
Did you have a super weekend? I pray so! I had a see-saw weekend. It was very good and very scary! That is what this email is all about. 🙂
My sweetheart had a crazy thing happen Friday night. I just got out of the doctor’s office and we have no idea still what happened, but he woke up unable to breathe in or out. His throat was swollen all the way shut. He could not breathe in or out at all. It was the most frightening thing I have ever experienced. I felt completely helpless. It was awful to see him struggle to breathe. It was a miracle that he didn’t die in front of me. Just awful!
It eased off over two hours. Today, the doctor is as puzzled as ever. He is leaning toward an allergic reaction to something (spider, etc) or possibly (because of his age) a weakening in his throat. Sooo, you guys pray for him and obviously me–I have been so edgy in my sleep since then. It is scary, scary.
Now for the upside—we were in MS this weekend planning and getting things ready for a big celebration for my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary. We had such a sweet time with them. They are sooo funny! I hope we are as cute when we have been married 50 years.
We are soooo proud of them. We enjoyed the time going through family pictures (for generations! WINK). I was able to scan them into my computer–what a sweet treat! I am going to put together a slide-show (I will upload it to Facebook/YouTube when I get it ready).
It was such a blessing to go over the stories of their life-story together. Watch over the next few weeks as I share some things on my heart about the legacy that they have built and are passing on to us and obviously to our children and our children’s children. I am just full to overflowing. It is a big, big thing to be married for 50 years in our culture. Just stay posted for all of my musings. I think you will enjoy it! PLUS! You will LOVE my 80’s hair! hehe! 🙂
One other thing…as we were coming home last night, I got a call and my sweet Elisabeth was in a car wreck. She was hit broad-side (driver’s side) and her car was totalled out. She is ok, but in real pain today. I am trying to help her with all of the details to get everything handled. Can we say, “YUCK!” Keep her in your prayers. I am a bit mushy today after the situation with Harold and Elisabeth. We are so blessed each and every day of our lives. It is so easy to take little things like sleeping or traveling mercies for granted. I am getting a crash-course in how to let go of even the great things to take care of my most precious gifts–my family.
Well, that brings me to my note to you guys. My sweet family needed me to help them during my normal preparation time this weekend. So, we will not be having our regular Tuesday Talk-a-Latte Chat this week. I am so sorry!
Also, I have a million things that I need to do to take care of all of these details. Soooo, what if we take a few weeks off of our live sessions? I SO love our live chats, but the next few weeks are going to be very crazy and demanding. It should not take long to get everything taken care of for Elisabeth, but I am going to be her personal chauffeur the next few weeks until we get her settled back down.
I promise to make this hiatus a short one and come back with a fun “Back to School Blast” and some other fun sessions for all of you. Also, this will help me to slow down and finish my new revision of Language Arts the Easy Way in time for the new school year. Yep! There it is! Publically committed to all of you dear friends. I have been snagging time in secret to work on the new version. I don’t have much more to finish for it to be ready to launch.
So, what do you think? I will work hard to get all of this ready and then we will have some fun preview chats with all of you counting down to the big release day. In those I can answer all of your questions and go over everything in more detail.
Speaking of that, if you have any questions that you want to be sure that I cover in Language Arts the Easy Way book or the upcoming preview chats on that theme, just reply to this email and share your question with me. I will be sure that I cover it! (HUGS)
Oh! This does not mean that anything else will be shut down. We will still be going strong with our eMagazines, blog, websites, and Facebook. I will keep you guys posted along the way. In fact, I planning to add a few articles and posts to all of the sites this afternoon. Be on the lookout!
Well, I will let you guys run. Thanks sooo much for your prayers and understanding. You are truly THE BEST! Big hugs from me and my crew! More later this week from the other things that are going on…
Love ya tons!
