What's in the works for 2015?

In no special order looking ahead to 2015.
  • Love my husband better in his love language
  • Daniel will graduate.
  • Daniel's Senior Prom
  • Finish Daniels afghan
  • Finish my sweater
  • Plan Sarah's Senior year
  • Start Sarah's afghan
  • David new job
  • rearrange master bedroom
  • walk 30 minutes 5 days each week
  • find a new pair of boots that I love just as much as the ones I can no longer wear because my feet stay swollen since I broke (R) and sprained (L) my ankles.
  • learn entralac crochet
  • learn Tunisian crochet
  • investigate selling my handmade bags at a local shop
  • possibly get a dog.  I miss having one but at this point we can't afford to get one.  Even if we were given a dog we can't pay for food & vet.
  • read Atlas Shrugged.  David has wanted me to read it for years.  It's a hard read for me since it doesn't catch my interest quickly.  I've started it many times.  I hope to finally finish it in 2015
No Truer words have been spoken.

Update on Sarah

On Friday, November 21, Sarah was at a friends house helping with the baking and visiting.  Around 4.30 she and her friend Samantha took their 2 dogs for a walk.  Sarah ran ahead and around the corner with her dog.  When Samantha rounded the corner she saw Sarah on the ground with Momo sitting beside her.

Samantha helped her up and they went back to the house where Sarah complained of a bad headache and was very tearful and frightened.  Jodie, Sam's Mom, called us and immediately brought Sarah home.

She had, and still has, no memory of the fall or of the next several hours.  She was continually asking the same question over and over.  We watched her very carefully over the next hours and talked to a doctor friend the next day who told us what to look for.

Today, a little over 4 weeks late she still has no memory of that time period.  We have no idea why she fell.  Her doctor said it could have been low blood pressure, low blood sugar or just simply tripping.

I've never been as scared for my child as I was with this.  This invisible injury was terrifying.  She is finally back to her normal school and volunteer schedule just in the last week or so.

I'm so thankful for the people who prayed for her and for us during this time.

Our Father's Provision NEVER Ends

The Gibsons are so blessed. 

David lost his job on 9/29 and that was it.  They offered a small "settlement" but he would have to sign all his rights to going to the EEOC away.  (Does that make sense?)

Our budget has been so tight for so long that we had very little to fall back on.

Our GOD is so good to us.  I have a list of folks to write thank you notes to.  We have come home to find groceries waiting for us.  Received gift cards in the mail, had meals brought to us.
Every time David or I start to get discouraged something happens to refocus our minds on HIM instead of on us.

Keep praying for us.  For a job.  For health.  For wisdom.  For patience.  That in all we do or say we will give glory to our Father in Heaven.
