I had no idea that we would get so busy!
2 1/2 weeks have gone by since I've last posted
and much has been happening.
Two weeks ago, the children and I
packed up our van and drove 1,000 miles North
to come take care of my mama as she recovers
from her open heart surgery and other physical ailments.
It was a long drive but it was, also, such a blessing
to admire God's wondrous creation on the way!
(All of the photos in this post can be clicked on to enlarge)
The mountains are so breathtaking!
A sign we saw in West Virginia.
I added the Scripture.
It took us two days of driving but we arrived safely.
A few days after we arrived my mama
went back into the hospital for a week.
She is home now and doing better.
(Thank you for your prayers)
While mama was in the hospital
we were able to visit with her twice a day.
During our visits, the Lord blessed us
by allowing us to see His creation...
a rabbit finding his meal,
a mourning dove sitting on its nest,
and a rock dove sitting on its nest, too.
The rock dove was close to the ground
and we were able to see it very well...
During one of our hospital visits,
Ally asked to visit with my mama's roomate
(an elderly lady who had suffered a stroke).
She gave her flowers (with a tract)
and spent about 20 minutes talking and listening to her.
It was a blessing to see her desire to reach out her.
While my mom was in the hospital,
we made good use of our time
by visiting with my grandma
and visiting with my dad
(who lives a just a little down the road)
We enjoyed one afternoon going to the pond
that is close to his home...

Sites at the pond...
At grandma's (also my mama's) house,
we were very blessed to have a sparrow family
right outside the window.
We were able to watch them all week
as mama sparrow worked to feed her little ones
from sun up to sunset...
The lil' girls have enjoyed playing doctor...
Here they traveled to the living room one morning
and fell back asleep together...
It was such a precious sight.
We have, also, enjoyed a local park...
And, of course, who can resist a summer without bubbles...
It has been a blessing to be here,
helping out my mama (and my grandma & dad),
though we miss Daddy dearly!
We sure appreciate your continued prayers
as my mama is recovering.
Hope y'all are enjoying your summer, too!
