Sick Friend



Happy Tuesday. I did not get to post my encouragments on Sunday because I was on call and had to go in to work. Then when I got home, I had to cook for a party yesterday at work. One of our employees turned 60 yesterday, and we had a little party. He is one of my dearest co-workers and friend. He has just found out that he is sick, and I wanted this birthday to be special. He lives at home and takes care of his 98 y/o mother. Please include him in your prayers. We go to the doctor tomorrow to schedule some more treatments he is going to have to have. He does not have anyone to take care of him, so I am his caregiver. I go with him to his appointments when I can, so I can help him better understand what is going on. I got several of the other people at work to cook something also--you know those that you can always depend on. He really enjoyed it and he had a great happy day.

The encouragement I picked for this week is simple---

Be aware of wonder-Live a balanced life-Learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work everyday some-------Robert Fulgham

The card is one I threw together this weekend. The cardstock is from Bazzill. The DP is from Pink Paislee. The sentiment is from Sweet N Sassy Stamps--Trust in the Lord. The ribbon is some I won in a blog candy give away. The cross is one I use for my pottery and I decided to use it on my card. I hope ya'll have had a great day. Be safe, happy healthy. Hug your loved ones, and God bless ya'll!!!!!
