    Hello to my dear, old friends. I know I haven't been around for a long time. I have wonderful news to share with you all. Angela is expecting her first baby on July 31st. I'm going to be a grandma! :)

    On a more somber note, my husband had a cancerous brain tumor removed in August. He's been through radiation and chemo. He's on chemo pills now and will be for a year. We are praying for a miraculous healing and he can always use more prayers. :)

    Melissa is still living at home, but she's doing good. Most of the time she's over at her boyfriend's so we don't actually see that much of her. She works part time at a daycare taking care of the infants and LOVES it.

    Congratulations! Glad also that your daughter is working at a job she really likes. AND it is the type of job that she very well could take her child with her!

    Very sorry to hear about your husband and sending good thoughts for a complete recovery. It must be very frightening.

    Hey Sue C! Nice to hear from you I am so sorry to hear about your husband. I pray that all goes for the very best for him. That has to be so hard for the entire family and you have my prayers.

    As for the girls, I am thrilled for you. Boy are grandchildren the best gifts you can get. They are the rewards for having children. If I could have skipped having the kids and just gone straight to the grands, I would have just done

    What a great surprise to see you here this morning! Last I recall was one difficult child was having success in the fashion designing industry and the other was struggling. Sounds like there is some joy back in your family and I'm delighted for you. Genuinely sorry to read that your husband is struggling and sending caring supportive thoughts to all of you. Hugs. DDD
