snippets... and stuff....

valentine snippets...
Ive been like brain dead this week.. nothing positive has come to mind to blog about, and I try to be positive here.. didnt want to whine.. you know! been falling asleep on the couch at like 10:00 the past few nights and sleeping til 6:00... very unusual.. usually I'm going to be at 11:00/11:30 and getting up at 5:00. my old body must need the rest huh?!
valentine snippets...
but if I'm to be honest, Ive been in a bit of a funk this week. Just stuff, you know.. we all get there sometimes.. worrying about kids, irritated with people, annoyed that i'm not rich....
you know, those kinds of things...
valentine snippets....
Just stuff. Everyonce in a while I realize how old I am.. and I think REALLY??? this is it??? then I get a little depressed.. but I work my way back out of it... counting my blessings ... of which I have SOOOO MANY! But, there just are things that need to be done, that I cant do, or cant afford to do that get to me a little and sometimes.. alot!
valentine snippets...
one thing that is weighing heavy on my mind and heart these days, that I guess I havent talked about much here is my son and his girlfriend who are expecting in June. I did tell you that the dr. recommended terminating the pregnancy because the baby has a herniated diaphram and also a severely defective heart. The dr. told them that the baby wouldnt live 24 hours after he is born. But the kids have decided to carry the baby to the end. Im glad thats what they've decided to do. but the fact remains that they will give birth and the baby will not live. So very sad. but at least they're not giving up on the baby and miracles happen.. so my bloggy pals, Im asking you all to pray for them and put them on your prayer chains at your churches.. etc...
OK?? I know I can count on you all.
valentine snippets...

We will pray for the kids and their baby, miracles do happen.
I hope you have a great weekend and get to do some things that make you happy, you deserve it! I know what you mean about the worrying, I do it so much about my kids and now a new job. Sheesh!

Kai said...

Vivvy, I always tend to joke around with you (mostly because we are two SILLY creatures) but I will be serious for a change. First, you are NOT old. Really! Second, I am going to keep your family & the baby so close to my heart I'll be able to feel them every minute. As for your feeling a bit 'off' recently, guess what? You're allowed! You ALWAYS keep all of us smiling! Let US be YOUR cheerer-uppers sometimes! WE LOVE YOU. I'm so proud of you for the weight loss! I admire you for your determination! I NEED some of that! My butt has gotten so big if I bend to dust, and my housemate is watching tv, he says it blocks the entire tv screen from his view. Sigh. I'd tell him to KISS my big booty, except that it's true. LOL! So FEEL GOOD about your success! I will stop chattering away adding only that your Valentineys are gorgeous & happy looking! Here's a HUGEEEEEE hug I'm passing through my computer to yours! (Did you get it?)

Hi Viv,
I read a few blogs were us "girls" are in a little "slump/fog/down" I think it's just the winter blues.
WOW you are doing great with your WW!!!
I will PRAY for a miracle for your son's baby!!!
Have a good weekend! You make the best treasures!! One of these days maybe I'll be your swap partner.
Warmly,
deb

We are always mamas and we have to be strong. Sometimes it's just hard.

Fran said...

My thoughts and prayers are with the baby, kids, you and rest of the family. Miracles happen all the time. I'm saying lots of prayers.

CONGRATS on the 8 lbs weight lost. WW and I aren't doing so well lately. LOL! My fault not WW. I'll get back on track. It's hard sometimes and I really haven't put my heart and soul into it like I should. Starting today my whole heart and soul is going into loosing this weight. I should have already had at least 20 or more pounds off of this body. I can't keep my hands off the SWEETS! No Will Power!!! Well, as of today I will find my Will Power again.

I'm having fun with the Valentine Swap. Almost ready to mail. Have to get her address first. Will go email her now, while I'm thinking about her.
You have a FUN CREATIVE WEEKEND.
HUGS
Fran

Dear Viv,
I most certainly will pray. That I know I can do for you. Continue to keep your thoughts positive, and let Him do the work. I think that an 8 lb loss sounds pretty inspiring to me. Wow, I should stop eating that fudge-cycle every night. The pictures of all your pretties are just that.
Blessings,
Susie

Sweet V! Happy Valentine's Day wishes to you and your loved ones! E

Lisa said...

I will pray for that precious child. It is heartbreaking news but you are right that miracles happen!
Can't wait to see what you made for the swap. Thank you for putting this together. I'm going to finish up my swap items so I can get them in the mail on Monday. I can't wait to see what everyone made!

Debby said...

I have been praying for that little peanut. Glad that they are going to caarry him to term. You here stories all the time about miracles after they said the baby wouldn't make it. Right now he is alive. God has a plan for him. if it is a sad one they will be glad they gave him a chance. I am sure that this is at the back of all your worries. God bless all of you.
YOur dolls are so cute.
Can't believe that you are falling asleep in the chair. I am having a battle with insomnia right now. I need alot of sleep to function and I am just not getting it. COuld be worse I guess.
(((((((HUGS))))))

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Hi, Viv! Thanks for coming by and giving encouragement! My funk has been a bit harder to shake but at least I know what it is and I know that light is the cure! It was sunny yesterday so I spent several hours out and about town. I can't do that every day or I'd be broke but I came home feeling much better.

I've heard of many miracles where babies surprised everyone! I hope this is the case with your little grand! ♥

Gosh, life has a way of giving us overfilled platters sometimes, doesn't it? It sounds like there some good balance going on with you (eight pounds! Woo hoo!) but sometimes it's that whole carnival of worry, joy, sorrow, blessings and just life that can wear us down.

Take care of yourself.

Remember to breath.

And know that prayers are heading your way.

Will say prayers for your babies and theirs. Just finished visting Natalea's site and read your comment -- 7 hours shopping (with babies?) oh my -- you deserve a tiara for that! I envy the beautiful way you've decorated your home -- I'd like to stop by, too! hugs ------d

Oh, I'm so glad I stopped by so I could add your son, his girlfriend and expected baby to my prayers. Such a sad situation. But I'm sure they're making the right choice. This way, it's in Gods hands.
Bless your hearts.
xoxo,

Sending you all LOVE and PRAYERS! It is not an easy decision to make - takes lots of courage and faith.
Hugs to you all!

Luv2Shop said...

So sad to hear that a doctor recommends terminating a life that is so precious. Miracles do happen and I will be praying for God to touch that baby even while he is in the womb and show him great favor! I pray that he will be brought up to know that he has a special purpose in life.
