Just two years ago today, I received a phone call from my daughter that made my heart drop. She said “Pops” had fallen off a 20′ ladder that left him with 13 busted ribs, 4 cracked vertebrae, and both lungs partially collapsed. I sped to the job site just as the ambulance arrived to rush him to the hospital. Once there, they immediately inserted a tube in his lungs to inflate them so he could breathe. He remained several days in ICU, battling for his life after getting an infection, along with a bout of pneumonia. But God! After a couple of weeks (that felt like the longest two weeks ever) he came home to finish mending!

People, let go of the petty stuff and love your spouse!
Everyday is a gift (from God), that’s why they call it the present.
My Mountain Man!
Happy Birthday to my hubby, confidant and best friend! You still light up my life, the wind beneath my wings.
It’s been a challenging week, but it’s been a fulfilling week. Fighting colds and congestion, while still trying to maintain the many schedules, appointments and deadlines.
In all the hustle and bustle, I reflect and remain grateful to the Lord. I am thankful for God’s provisions. He gives me life, health (the bug has passed), sanity, creativity, purpose, family and friends. I am thankful for His grace, for when I am weak then am I made strong in Him.
Today is my help mate’s birthday.
We will celebrate his life, his character, and his being.
We love “being” with him.
You tolerate my trivia,
laugh at my lunacy
and care when I cry.
That’s what I call TLC.
