daily blessings

A blog created to show how much I am blessed each day.

Saturday, October 21, 2006


This is my younger sister Cheryl (on the left) and her two children, Merideth (in front), Jordan (behind), and Scooter the dog in my lap. This was on my visit to St. Louis last week and what a blessing to spend time with all of them. Husband Mike had drill for the weekend so he missed out on the picture but I did get to visit with him for a few days before he flew to Michigan for drill. Cheryl being younger (by 12 years) has always had such neat, hip, young, and up to date things to keep her old lady sister in style and updated. She has the best ideas on saving time, storage, and cleaning items plus she introduced me to all the latest things like ipods, Project Runway, pedicures, uploading, Boise surround sound and how to do things on the computer. I always learn something new when I am with her. I love my sister and her family and treasure each minute that I spend with them. I can't wait until Thanksgiving to see them again.

Are you having picture trouble with blogger? I hate it when that happens. They seemed to have been messed up all weekend. Sisters are special. I agree!

St. Louis... I know a Cheryl from there! It is a fun city.

Blogger has been cranky for all of us. I hate typing at 20/wpm which is all it would let me do (before it ate my post). It seems to be okay now.

Thanks for your comment. I may update my post to explain that my hands won't allow me to do the type of cutting associated with the great pumpkin party. It's paint or nothing.

Silly me. I did already say that. It isn't exactly arthritis - more carpal tunnel from years of pounding a keyboard.

I feel the same way when I can visit with my daughters. One lives two hours away, one lives in California and another in Oregon. We were all together this summer at TTC and we made some great memories!

Hi Nancy,

I got to visit with my own sister two weeks ago when she and her husband flew out here to western Colorado from Pennsylvania. We hadn't seen each other in over two years so believe me I know how much you enjoyed visiting with your sister and her family.

Thank you for visiting my blog this evening and leaving a comment. Yes, I guess I do post a lot. Maybe someday I'll be all talked out but for now I seem to have lots to say. :-)

Hi Nancy, Thanks so much for visiting me and for your sweet comment. I'm always so happy to meet someone new. It sounds like you had a wonderful visit with your sister and family. My grown daughter is the one who sort of keeps me caught up with the times. I sometimes feel so far behind there is no catching up!!
I'm so happy to meet you.

Hi Nancy, I saw you visited my post and havent noticed you there before. Coming to your site, I see you are in North Carolina, which intrigued me. My husband and I are looking to retire in a few years, and only have about 5 states on our possible list; NC is one of them, South Carolina too. I wondered if youre a native, or if you picked it and moved there. Any comments would be appreciated as to why you chose it. Thanks for visiting.

I think of my sister as a blessing, too :-) They're in England right now, but will soon be back in the States and I hope to visit with her over Christmas!

I would love to visit North Carolina sometime. I always imagine it to have a wonderful history.

Don't you just love family members who can help you with "techie" things?
