Great Tuesday!

Today was to be a day for me to be in a Motivational Seminar, but with all the traffic and no parking, Steve and I did not go, we instead picked up some signs on the home I closed and we put some signs up on some listings, then had lunch with Alicia, got to get a grip on my eatingSmile then worked and Steve went with Alex to a Pastor’s  meeting in Jonesboro, I went to my ladies group, which is going well, such a wonderful group of new friends, it has been life changing for us all, if you have never done a 12 step study, it is life changing, really helps you understand your selfSmile The good and the bad.  Now home alone and have time to blog!  All is good here, Jill has still had morning sickness and tired so keep her in your prayers, she is doing great with her pregnancy, just normal pregnant morning sickness. Working out when I can get Amelia and keep her over night so Jill can just rest, or what ever makes her happySmile   This is a easier Tuesday then last week for sure, this time last week I about did not even know my name, so glad it is more settled!

Mother is doing good, she seems more settled, I am looking at her moving in with us by the end of the year, dread it for her, but in the long term I think it is the best decision for her.  Some have said are you sure you can do that, my answer to that is you do what you have to do, I will still have a care giver during the day and when needed, but I do think mother will be happier, her mind will be stimulated more with more things to watch and do, but she will have her space to where she can get by her self and be quiet.  She will see Dr. Bradley in December and I think Kay and I will talk to him about stopping the Namenda, not sure it is helping, seems Alzheimer's is just taking its courseSad smile I and Steve have prayed this through and we know God will give us the grace and peace we need to be care givers, I am fortunate to have help when needed. I feel very blessed to have my mother still  mother 126 at Clay’s wedding, she is beautiful inside and outSmile 

Well guess I will go and get in the bed, been a good day!! Hugs and Nite

So hard to Blog:( where does my time go?

I love blogging, but I am out of the daily habit of blogging and it is hard for me to take the time to blog right now:(( Since my last blog, have sold some home's and closed on my big one:)  Thank you for  beck,april 002prayers, it was a battle that belonged to the Lord all the way to the end! I do not say that lightly, the home had a squatter in it, and attorney who was down on his luck and his family had moved into one half of it, keep in mind this is a Million Dollar home, the owner did not want them there, but her grandson let them move in, this attorney sent me the longest, ugliest, unloved letter, even bet his paycheck I have never opened a Bible:) You will be proud of me, I chose not to respond, but ask the Lord to defend me, he even gave me deadlines to meet or he would not get out, believe me I thought who does he think he is????? but for once did not react to his demands or his demeanor, which was far from professional. I had pressure from everyone to act on what he said so the deal would close, but I knew I could not respond and I did not:) handsIt felt good to just give it up and if God did it fine and if He did not then that was fine too, but I really could use the commission:) God came through, it did close:) I know I have never been called all what he called me, but I will continue to let God handle that:) The market has been real busy, I have closed over a Million in August, in which I needed. I am below my normal production this time of the year, way below, so keep praying.        me and sherry smailing   friends  I had a few days with my girl friends, Old pic, Edwanda was not with us, I really enjoyed my time with them. Pam's husband was on a mission trip and Dinah took off work, Sherry was off, we just ate, did I say ate??? and laughed and talked, shared our hearts with each other, a great girl friend time:) Came home to a wonderful weekend,off I was relaxed, that helps, I am so high strung, when work is so busy it is hard for me to relax, people will never know how stressful Real estate can be, until you do it, thankfully I have Steve who can pick up my work so we never miss a beat. Sean had Anna and Cole ready to go to a Rodeo,cole and anna 002cole and anna 003cole and anna 004cole and anna 005 Anna getting ready fro Deer season.  Today I had the pleasure of having Children's Church journey kids1at Journey, journeykids2it was fun, Cole in his hatSmilejourneykids5  Watching Video on Queen Ester, Amelia and he babySmile we worshiped with a DVD of Kids Worship, it is neat how children express them self, so free!

My Aunt Connie, my mother's sister husband died in a tragic accident Tuesday night late, I was so over whelmed with what to do, I wanted to go to Louisiana but not sure how.  We drove with two of Hannah’s children, she had two, so we can not leave without them and I could not do a funeral with them. The visitation is today and funeral is in the morning, in talking to Connie I knew she had family all around her and decided to stay here, but it is so hard, knowing what she is going through and me be here.
