A new day....

Hey everyone - WOW - is all I can say. Thank you all so much for your prayers, they have lifted me and helped me to cope with today and look forward for tommorow. It always amazes me how you can literally FEEL people holding you up in prayer and the strength that is drawn from that!! Your offers to help have made me feel loved beyond words and the encouragment that has been given has helped me to be strong for the Milk Man. He is hurting, nothing is written in stone as far as what will be sold - but big changes are on the way. I believe in miricles, I truely do and its going to have to be a large one for us to continue. We are not WAY IT DEBT - however for us to continue there are financial changes that have to be made and with the prices as they are......it wont be feasable. There are SEVERAL other things weighing on this also, that I wont get into because its personal and I wont write about those things because its not my 'place'..... I know I have written about several things that are pretty personal, but they are about my family, myself or the Milk Man and this involves others - so I feel the need to leave it at that. You guys are wonderful and I cant imagine my life without being able to blog. Before, i wasnt sure this was somthing that I wanted to continue, but now I cant imagine if I dont.....




SO, thank you again and I hope to have a fun post up in the near future. Till then, here is a little some thing for you to hold you over.. :)








Ya know how a 10 year old boy show's his mom how much he loves her?????



By walking through the damp morning grass, getting soaking wet from the waist down, carrying his precious treasure about 1/4 of a mile through thorns and brush, to bring her the best little treat in the world... cuz he has payed attention and knows they are her favorite....


Black Rasberries - better known here as black caps....

Heidi - I have been a lurker for some time and thoroughly enjoy your writing and your quirky view of life's humor. I know this situation is not humorous at all and you've got more questions than you can even say out loud. Here's the verse I hung on to when going through life and future changing things in the last couple of years. "I will pour out for you such blessing you will not have room enough for it. Malachi 3:10" I'll be praying for you.

What a wonderful boy! You have been in my thoughts all day. I am glad things are a little brighter, even if in such a small way. But it's the small things that keep us going...

Hi There Heidi,

I'm new around here (a friend of Karen Deborah's, the in-real-life kind of friend) and she encouraged me to come on over and get to know you. Wow! Looks like I picked a doozer of a time to make my acquaintance.

I've only read a bit, but I am on my knees for you already. I, too, believe in miracles (BIG ONES) and I am onboard to pray with you and ride this bloggy wave to God's glory.

So . . . nice to meet you. ; D

Heide said...

What a sweet little guy! We don't have those here, but we're up to our eyeballs in blackberries. Want any jam? Seriously.

Heide said...

oops, jelly, not jam.

Mrs Mom said...

Susan said...

Smiles are good! What made me smile are the black raspberries. My mother-in-law would make the best pies out of them. Been a while since I have eaten them. They are better than the reds. Hang in there.

Mrs Snow said...

Patty said...

Leave it to your kids! just when you think things are at their worst,they go and do something simply so sweet and loving...You are truly blessed. Peace..

Vickie said...

I think your son's surprise gift to you is the very best thing that happened to you today! He loves you obviously and what else could be better! Shows what a good loving momma you've been. Family is the best blessing of all. Keeping your situation in prayer, dear.

Karen Deborah said...

God and sons are both sweet like that. God is moving a lot of folks right now, maybe us too. So guess what we might as well get excited about it!! Only good things come form our Father. My friend Debbie came!!! YEAH!! I love you Heidi.

Jody Blue said...
