Thanksfilled

Not blogging much- too much going on and attitude not always worth displaying to the world! Word of warning --moving when you are "older" and in midst of medical issues is NOT the old UHaul slogan of Adventures in Moving. BUT - we have professional moving crew coming on Monday the 21st to take all the large pieces we think will fit in new place so are committed now. In midst of a house filled with mess - neighbors (God bless their loving hearts) brought over this pretty fall arrangement - yep - grace is undeserved blessing and we get more than our share!
I can honestly say - I'm thankful for my life - eternal and mortal. The bumps and bruises of my journey make the promises of heaven and the flowers of earth all the sweeter.
DH goes week of the 29th to Dallas for a yea or nay on the transplant (a lung in case you don't recall). We know they are serious - first appointment will be with the "financial office".
At any rate - IF I get a burst of energy and an internet connection - will post a bit next week. We are thankful for nice neighbors in new home area (guy across the street was stringing lights in his trees yesterday - hooray for neighbors who decorate for Christmas!).
On a nonmoving, nonwhining note - it IS good on Buhlaland when we can say Take My Life - broken vessels can be useful in the hands of the Potter. Bless y'all and Happy Thanksgiving!

Amen to the bumps and bruises thing.

So here's a bit of freakiness, I woke up this morning thinking of you and Skip among others, paused on you folks and pondered the lung transplant thing that you haven't spoken of for a while. Pondered about when that would be comin' 'round. And here I am just a bit later readin' your post about moving forward on that very subject. Your neighbors are too wonderful for words. How sweet is that!

What a lovely bouquet , you do have nice friends & neighbors. Glad you have a moving company taking care of that...you don't need strained backs to go with strained emotions regarding bigger issues...like LUNG TRANSPLANTS!

In spite of your bumps and bruises, you never seem to fail to praise God for His goodness to you both. I will pray for you LindaSue.
