a lot going on

I got some really bad news this morning. I just can't talk about it right now. Not until we work everything out. However I will share the news in the future, so that someone else might learn from what I am going through.

Last night was just filled with blessings. I went and picked up some stuff that someone else was giving away. Then the lady asked me if I would like any of the other stuff. Amber and I just looked at each other. These people had a garage full of stuff. This will really help Amber out as she has been trying to gather stuff for another yard sale.

Nikki's mission trip leader called me and told me that the church gave her $250 for her trip and that she also raised another $50! Cool, that means that Nikki only needs to raise $174 more. Not a problem.

Then this morning we had a meeting at Ryan's school. We got everything that we wanted! I am so happy for Ryan. If Rusty and I do not fight for what is best for him, then no one will.

My mom actually e mailed Rusty and asked him what I would like for my birthday. That is a good question. My mom said that she did not want to send a gift card, but with her living so far away... Anyway, I have been wanting to go kayaking, so I am going to do some research and see if she might be able to get me a gift card to go kayaking.

Nikki is coming home today! I can't wait to see her. I know that she had a blast up in Oregon. Oh! Nikki was in LaGrand, I guess that is in eastern Oregon.

So I should be doing the usual house hold stuff, but I did not get to bed until late, and I hade to get up early, so I just have no energy. Blah

Prayers for whatever is going on.
La Grande is in Eastern OR.  I stopped there once on my way to AZ.  
Excellent about Amber's trip and her earnings.  Just don't take any couches.  I can't seem to give away ours!
I need to go sweep.  Don't wanna.

My sister in law had a yard sale for her mission trip to Kenya... she needed to raise $525 to pay for her shots... she raised $530! Wasn't that cool!

I hope Nikki had a great time. I used to live in Elgin which is 20 miles or so from LaGrand we drove in there often to shop. I have many happy memories from that time in my life.
I am glad you had so many blessings to go with the bad news. I will pray that everything works out soon.

I hope the news is not too bad or did you tell it?  I did have to smile at the thought of you getting a gift card to go kayaking. I have hardly heard of anyone even going kayaking!  But I think it is pretty fascinating that you like it.   Gerry
