Prayer Request Please

I do not know this family or this girl, but I read about her story on another blog I follow regularly and felt the need to seek out your help. I know the power of prayer is strong and I really feel like this little girl can use all the prayers we can possibly send up for her right now. Her name is Kate. On Monday, her mom took her to the doctor for hand tremors she was having. They are now facing a very aggressive and malignant brain tumor the size of an egg that is wrapped around the blood vessels that feed the motor part of your brain. She is having surgery today to remove part of the tumor and to find out what treatment options are best. Please, please, please pray for this beautiful child and her family. I know we're strangers to them, but we are not to God.

Super Excited

We signed the paperwork for our land today, so it's official. We now own it. The pond is fully stocked and it's OURS!!!! Trenton will hopefully be able to start building his warehouse later this fall and get started on that. We have some other projects in the works that I'm equally excited about and really thankful for them. I feel like God has definitely blessed us lately and continues to always provide for us in ways we could never have seen. I'm ready for this next chapter in our lives and hope other things we've been waiting for are soon to follow. One step at a time!

I'm ready for the 4th this weekend. It will be a busy few days, but it sounds like beautiful weather and I love visiting with family and friends. Lerin is coming in from Colorado today and will be here for quite a few days. Butch and Lisa will be having their celebration on Friday, we'll go to the golf course on Saturday afternoon and evening. Then on Sunday, we'll go to Gma Tallman's for fireworks and ice cream that evening. All in all, very busy, but filled with lots of family time!

So far, so good on the FlyLady stuff. I'm not hitting it super hard, but for the last 4 days, I've made my bed first thing, cleaned the bathroom toilet and sink daily, and kept my kitchen sink empty of dirty dishes and shiny! It's a small start, but it's more than what I was doing. Now to start on the clutter! I'm hoping small changes now, will make it easier in a few months when the big changes start to happen around here and school is back in session!
