Another "Not" Wordless Wednesday

It has been a few days since I have been here and thought I'd better check in. Dawn asked me if I was tired from picture posting:) Good excuse, but not the case. My brain has just been on "spin cycle" for a few days. It has a mind of it's own.

I have received two awards from my sweet new friend Pam and I will get them on here soon. They require some "thought" and as soon as my brain returns, I will do them. I am not sure if I write the stuff first and then upload the award, (so that they are in the right order) so if anyone wants to enlighten me, go for it in the comments. I just don't want the award at the bottom of the post. sigh.

I have the grandkids today so I am just going to post a few prayer requests and catch up on more later this evening or tomorrow.

1. Kelli is having surgery today and needs our prayers. She is at Living in Grace and waiting for a kidney transplant. I just love this girl so much. Her situation is DIRE.

2. A baby to be born soon named Gracie. I just found out about her and she has medical issues that may be Trisomy and some other things. Prayers for her parents and for her would be such a blessing.

3. My friend Nita had surgery and is in a lot of pain and her daughter may need to have her spleen removed this weekend. They need love and prayer.

4. My girlfriend with the "Spooty Husband" continues to work through what to do about the situation. She's coming to visit next month and I want to be open to the Lord using me.

5. Continued healing for my Nieces mom who just had breast cancer surgery Monday. It went well for her and they are waiting on biopsy results to go forward with radiation and possibly chemo.

I know I am forgetting someone here but the Lord knows and He is good. Oh yeah, for me too. I need to make an appointment for my yearly mammogram and they always make me nervous until I get the results. Self confidence gets bruised when cancer has visited. I am 12 years out and still free and thankful. I just want to get this behind me.:)

Okay, I love you guys and I will be back here soon. I just can't get on here with the grandkids here, it makes me feel guilty. I would appreciate your prayers on the requests above. Blessings to you all today.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Consider them all prayed for, Laurie. Kelli is my dead friend too. And while I am here, let me just thank you so much for being such a faithful friend and for all your wonderful comments of encouragement too. You are a gem.

Rach said...

Hooray, you ARE alive, lol!

I'm sure your awards were well deserved. To post them, go ahead and type your post and then upload the photos. :o)

I will certainly say prayers for all listed and those we need to remember. You are wonderful, Laurie and I pray for you as well.

Love ya!

Dawn said...

That is a lot of requests - I checked in on Kelli yesterday and didn't see anything about surgery. Are you in e-mail contact with her? What kind of surgery is she having?

Thanks for catching us up!

Hi Laurie, I feel like I know you from your beautiful comments on so many of the same blogs I follow. I have a big place in my heart for the moms and families who have had babies leave too soon.

I just started my blog, so I now have a different name on my comments. I used to be cojlisa16.
I also live in California and from reading your comments (for a LONG time now) and seeing your blog, I am glad to "know" you as a blog friend. If it's ok with you, I'd like to add you to blogs I follow.

Blessings and prayers for all your selfless requests,
Lisa in CA

Laurie, in looking at your blog list, I am amazed at how many of them I also visit. I am wondering if you remember which family you first started following and if that lead you to all the others.

I started about 2 1/2 years ago, when my friend Emily posted about Jake Raborn. I "knew" Emily from an aol board we'd been on since 2003 for moms with kids born that year and have watched her give birth to her miracle Mattie as well as her angel in Heaven, Miller Grace. I have since met Emily IRL and she is awesome.

These moms are just amazing to me and I pray for them daily. I just wish I could write as eloquently as you do. You are amazing too.

Hey girl! Sorry it has taken me so long to FINALLY comment... just wanted to let you know that I LOVE the pictures of you and your precious family!! I'm so glad you are posting pics- I'm so proud of you mama :)

Happy Wednesday!
Love you!

I pray for your everyday Laurie, and I will be saying a prayer for your other requests as well.

I see Rach has already answered your question. Thanks for the email today. One more question, what are the ages of the grandkids??

Love you!!

Cathy said...

First off, yea for you 12 yrs. canacer free! Will be praying you stay that way. Also, will pray for your special prayer request. I also just found Gracie sweet site. You beat me though. A friend who visits Annabel's blog emailed me and told me her friend maybe having Trisomy baby and she lived in Texas @ Dallas. So since I am going there tomorrow for the weekend, I email her and wanted to meet her, but she is in a wedding out of state, so won't happen. I am surely praying for this little one to be born in March! Glad you are enjoying those grandkids!
