Housekeeping

Hi all!! Just back from the beach. I know it's a tough life, but someone's gotta do it. Actually you know how much I do NOT take for granted that I get to spend time there. We are blessed to live where we do and I am overjoyed for a day that my symptoms allow me to spend time there!!

Anyway, this will be a bit of a rambling post to address a few different things.

FOLLOWERS: If you do not have your face over there to the right with the rest of the followers, will you do me a favor and become a follower? This is not just about numbers!! I will be honest and tell you that when I see the number go down, I wonder what happened? Who left? What did I do? But...there are many of you who don't comment (and that is so fine) but I like to stop by and see who is reading me. The only way I can do that is if you comment or if you're a follower. So go on over there and click the "follow" button!! Ok, thanks.

PROFILES: For those of you who are bloggers you know what your profile is. It would be a huge help if you would have your profile connected to your email. I love to reply to comments and I can only do this if you show your email in your profile. This will not show up on your blog page, but it shows when your comment comes through to me. If you don't know how to do this, here is a short tutorial:

go to your dashboard - click on edit profile by your "picture" - make sure the box next to show email address is checked

Since I have my "bossypants" hat on, one more thing. Some of you do not have comments enabled on your blog posts. I've been by and really want to comment, but it won't let me!!

What else can I tell you to do? Oh okay, tomorrow (Wednesday) night we have a family counseling session. First time (might be the only time). Please pray that God would just be "all over it". This is huge. This is not to make everything better or to reconcile. This is to learn how to still be a family that lives separately. To allow the kids to express themselves to their dad. To allow Don to show the kids how desperately he wants a relationship. To say the kids are less than thrilled is an understatement.....

Pray on!! Love you all so much.

Hi Sheryl, I haven't been able to post lately. Will have one up soon. Just a little update on Nathan at this point. We just found out we will be going back to UAB for a heart catheriterization to use a ballon again to take pressure off his 4th ventrical. And then another open heart surgery after that. Thanks for keeping up in your prayers, even though I don't get to comment much, you are still in mine too. Stay tuned. Debbie

I will lift up all concerned in prayer.
