Is it Friday already !

Marky's PIC line is clotted off again ! UGH !

There.....i'll just get it out there right off the bat !

The home health nurse will come out today to do her
magic on it, hopefully, and get it runnin again !

Other than that, he's had a great week. Aunt Lori is
flitting about the countryside the last few days, so Markys
been having fun with our neighbors, Jen Larsen and Cathy
Widdison while James went to school and Mom worked !

Sammy has been healthy this week too and back in his
routine of pre-school and playing at his day-care home!

Scott is counting down the days till his 15th Birthday !!!
Another UGH !!!! March 28th is the big day. He is
approaching 5'10" or taller and is so much fun to be a great help with everything...AND HE"S

The other day Marky asked me.."Mom, why doesnt Scotty
have a "life-threatening" illness? , me and Sam do !?"

Marky didnt want Scotty to feel left out, I guess !

I wanted to say stuff like...well, Heavenly Father only
gives challenges to those he knows can handle them....
and other quips that we use to soften the "blow" of disasters.

But, when I thought about Scott and what he goes thru just
watching all the "stuff" happening, WATCHING your 2 little
brothers fight for their lives many times. The emotion of
all of that is possibly just as tough as BEING
the "sufferer" !

Scott continues to get himself up at 05:15 am everyday for
early morning Seminary. He's getting good grades. Doesnt
have a police record. And still tells his Mom he loves her !

Those are "life threatening" challenges right there !! !

Something to think about....

Tomorrow we go to the Home and Garden Show at South
Towne expo ctr to be the guest celebrity. !

Will report on that tomorrow !

Love you guys !

Sammy's healthy, Scott is obedient and loving, Marky's an Expo Celeb-To-Be! Sounds like you are counting your blessings! Good for you! :)

In honor of your Irish blog page here's an Old Irish Blessing:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Love, Cathy
P.S. And may your pic lines stay open.
