Taking a Break...

Monday, June 29, 2009

I'm taking a little break.  
I'm a little tired.  
I'm a lot tired.  

But before I go, I want you all to know...

The Colonel is doing so good!  

He still has a hole in his leg.  
Cleaning and dressing the wound is going pretty well.  

The banquet on Sunday for our pastor was beautiful.  I was able to get everything together even though I was away from the house for 5 days with the Colonel in the hospital.  
Everyone had a great time.


I need a few days to recover from the stress of EVERYTHING!  

I'm sure you all understand!

I'm going to enjoy some time with the Colonel who is home on medical leave!

I'll be back next week!

Love you all!

  2. Yes~we need to come apart and rest or we will com apart!
    You put your feet up and relax!

  3. Glad to here your hubby is doing so well! Enjoy your break and get some much needed rest:)

  5. HI there, I'm glad you are taking a break; with all you've been through lately you deserve it! So pamper yourself as well as your hubby, relax and enjoy the easy life. Be blessed and know others are praying for you both.

  14. I was on R&R with my family and so I had no idea your husband was in the hospital. I hope they get the infection under control. My son was just at Ft. Dix for two weeks so your paths probably crossed. I will pray for his good health.

  20. Enjoy you time with hubby and be strengthened in the Lord's anointing. ((hugs))

    "The Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you."Deuteronomy 31:6...I thought about God being with you while you have a little 'sabbatical' from blogland.

  21. Oh you deserve a break. Take care of hubby and you.


  22. So glad you get to spend time with your hubby. It's great news that he is healing. Enjoy your 4th and family time together.

  23. Yes it sounds like you deserve a break and I hope that you enjoy your off time with hubby.
    Glad to hear that he is doing well and is resting at home.
    God bless

  24. Thinking of you Lois and hoping that you are enjoying the respite. I hope that you are finding strength and relaxation, and inspiration from somewhere - just the same way that those of us who visit you are lucky enough to get that here when we come over to see you. Love and blessings to you all for the weekend ahead Lois x x

  25. Just checking in. Hey, you are up to 98 followers!

  26. I hope that all goes well with the Colonel. Staph infections are a real problem. Especially, MRSA which alot of people get in the hospital. I know. It killed my mother. It is a nasty bacteria that is multi drug resistant meaning that most antibiotic treatments are not effective against it. Check out my site www.squidoo.com/livesmart and scroll down to the MRSA section. Also, suggest gettin the Colonel on Colloidal Silver(a natural antibiotic that will enhance the immune sytem not weaken it like antibiotics) and a Superfood supplement to super power his immune system to combat infections and prevent MRSA from being an issue. Wish you all the best.

  27. I pray that you will find rest and peace in the Lord and that He will restore you. Enjoy your break and happy 4th of July!

    Hugs, Sharon

  28. Hi Lois, Just stopping by to say Hi and hope you all are getting that much needed break and restoration.I have been thinking about you all and praying for you.
