What changes a year can bring! it was a year ago that my oldest son was diagnoses with cancer. After surgery, radiation, and chemo treatments, the cancer finally won. And God took
Greg Home December 30. I still do so miss him and know there will always be days that it just does not seem like he is gone.

Love my knitting group - such a lively, fun group. We meet 2 or 3 times a week and knit and chat away!! Right now am knitting a prayer shawl for a friend who has cancer and a scarf for me, I like beading too but have not done any for a while. We do have a nice bead shop here in Pendleton - need to stop in there and get inspired.

Elaine and i have been meeting for almost 2 years now - at the Donut Shop. We have done a study of the book of Roman and have now started a study of Revelation. We have a good study outline and are excited about what God is going to teach us.

I have discovered that just logging into SparkPeople every day, reading all the inspiring blogs, and visiting the teams i belong to is not going to take off all this extra weight i continue to carry - i am going to have to actually start following all the good encouraging suggestions and do have a plan of my own.

I live in Pendleton, Oregon - in the NE corner of the state - famous for the Pendleton Roundup in September - when the town double in size. Lots of activities: the rodeo, Happy Canyon (the Indian pageant), 2 big parades, and booths all over town that have goodies to eat, beautiful articles to purchase.

Good morning Barb, lovely to hear from you.
I'm sick of the sight of beans...lol...but as you say they will taste good in winter!

Our weather's very changeable at times, we're not as hot and sunny as we were and it keeps showering, the forecasters say the week-end will be bad as we catch the tail end of tropical storm Bertha...it could miss us though and go over to France...fingers crossed!

Had a lovely meal out with the WI last night, stuck to what l was supposed to have too as I chose carefully from the menu.
Not been so good with myself just lately, had a few days away with David and two days out with Leah and the children...did succumb to fish and chips and an ice-cream but it shouldn't be so bad when l weigh in on tuesday!

Hope you have a wonderful week-end, take care and don't melt!! emoticon

Oh, yes, we are familiar with DaVita. I work for Puget Sound Kidney Centers in Snohomish County. It is a very rewarding job and one that I love coming to even on a Monday!
Blessings to you and your daughter!

Thank you so much for the kind words, My daughter is doing much better! Praise be to God!!!
I live in Michigan, The thumb of Michigan that is! just a few miles from the shores of Saginaw Bay on lake Huron. My background picture was taken on my deck over looking my flower garden. I love bird watching and have all my bird feeders, baths, and bird houses there. I live on a small river with many birds in my yard. I am a dog lover also. I have a golden retriever that is just like a child. I work at an assisted living home and she is the pet therapy dog. She goes to work with me daily.
When you go to lead your bible class God will give you the right words to say and it will be fine! Just have faith and trust in Jesus.
So sorry to hear about your son, he is sitting with Jesus and smiling down on you. It is so hard when our loved ones are taken to soon. My sister was just diagnosed with lung and liver cancer stage 4, we have all been praying for her. she will be starting treatment next week.
I also knit and crochet.
I hear it is beautiful in your State! Keep sparkin VivianKay
