Hayden's Journey starts Monday....

Just got word from my son, Chris:

Hayden's white blood cells dropped even more and now they are in a rush for time. He will go to Children's Hospital in Washington, DC on Monday, Jan. 25th. They will be inserting a port into his chest and give him his first dose of Chemo. He will be there for a week. He may stay at the Ronald McDonald house after or may come home for a short stay. Then he will return to Children's for his bone marrow transplant. I will keep everyone informed.

Hayden celebrates his 3rd birthday on Sunday!

Thanks to EVERYONE for your prayers and support....please keep praying for Hayden!!!

Amish reading anyone?

I must confess, I am not much of a reader unless it is something that really catches my attention. To read in school or while I was in Nursing school was a chore for sure! But I have found several authors that have captured my interest and my heart with their books on the Amish. Several are now my "friends" on Facebook! To see the books I have read so far, click on the bookshelf. I haven't read a book that I didn't like yet. They are all my favorites!

While waiting on another book to arrive at the library, I came across the book "White Christmas Pie" by Wanda Brunstetter. A wonderful story that I couldn't wait to read at night! I love how she has recipes at the end of her books and how they work into the story. It's a wonderful book to read!

A friend of mine, Chris, gave me a book to read, "A Merry Heart" that her sister, Vicki, told her to give to me. I was so excited! Another book from Wanda! And another great story with another recipe at the end of her book! This was another great story to read and found myself anxious to pick up at night to see what was happening next! It is the first book in a series of 4, "Brides of Lancaster County". I'm looking forward to reading the next book, "Looking For A Miracle"!

So while waiting for my next book by Wanda, I got a book for Christmas I began reading. "SummerHill Secrets - 1" by Beverly Lewis. It's 5 stories in one book about a wonderful 15 year old "English" girl named Merry Hanson living in PA in Amish country and friends with Rachel Zook, her Amish neighbor. This is teen fiction, but it has been a wonderful present to read. AGAIN...I can't wait to pick it up at night to read!

I owe a hearfelt THANK YOU to my favorite Amish authors for catching my attention and my heart to read again!

***P.S. My son, Steven, was able to save ALL of my files onto a backup hard drive! What a relief! He is so good with computers! I told him he should go to college and get his degree in Computer Science - he says "Nah, I just like to play around with them!" :)

Crash, boom, bang....and alot of tears!!!

My computer crashed last night as I was looking for a hat pattern online. My son told me he "thinks" he can save a few files, but not everything. All my charity forms and stuff, pictures, and PATTERNS gone!!!! I watched Steven work on my computer and when he told me the news, I broke out in tears like a little kid that lost their favorite toy. I feel like that song from Hee Haw "...if it wern't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all..."

Going away tomorrow on a bus trip to Atlantic City, NJ. It's a fundraiser for Walkersville Rescue Company. Go there and gamble for the day. Be nice to win something - but won't hold my breath! Mold will start growing!!!! hahahaha Will have my crocheting with me on the trip. Really glad yarn doesn't crash!!! I'd really be up a creek with no paddle! :)

Think Organic.....

If you LOVE organic bath, body, and medicinal products, please check out this website Garden Acres LLC. She now offers mineral makeup! She is having a 15% off sale till the end of the month!

I met Lee at one of my craft shows. She is wonderful lady and of course, she has alot of wonderful organic products! If you love the smell of lavender, like I do!, her Lavender Body Butter is fantastic! It makes your skin so soft. I put some on my hands before I go to bed at night and the smell is so relaxing!

All of her organic products are made by hand on their farm, which is located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. So you can't get any closer to nature than that!!!

If you check out her site and make any purchases, please let her know Beth sent you! You will fall in love with her products! I did!!!
