Loves Of My Life

















I had to show you a picture of my beautiful children, Melancththon and Katharina, and then of course my gorgeous nephew Asher on nasal cannula. Isn't wonderful to see his face?! I am praying so hard soon he will be completely tube and bag free (he also has a colostomy).

Life has been going fairly well this week. I started my Bible Club, which will last for seven weeks and is each thursday night. We had about twelve children show up. I must admit the program was a little rough around the edges, but now that we know about how many kids and what ages I will have the chance to really adapt everything. I am praying the program is successful in teaching the children about the basics of the Lutheran church and is fun for them and us.

Today I went horseback riding for the second time! This trip was with the 5-6th graders. I was much better this time around! I am getting more comfortable with it and actually really enjoyed myself. The mountains are so pretty with all the different colored leaves. I took pictures and will post them soon, possibly tomorrow. Oh, and I was so close to taking home this really cute kitten there at the stables. He was so tiny and oh so cute! Good thing I have a little self-control and my supervisor to remind me that I do not need nor do I want to be a crazy cat lady! :)

Thank you all for checking in on "Aunt Laura", leaving me wonderful comments, and of course for praying.

I'm so proud of you!
Keep up the good work; you are definitely where you are supposed to be! Can't wait to see you at Thanksgiving!!!!!!
Prayers for my procedure on Thursday, that it stops pain for a long time and that it doesn't have any weird side effects. I'll let you know.
Love you!!!!

Laura,
Thank you so much for your links to the caring bridge sites. I had previously asked you to add my nephew, Trey, and I'm wondering if you would add another precious little girl named Kate. I have "fallen in love" with her on her site, and she is having the "last option" treatment for neuroblastoma. Her parents are wonderful Christian parents of four children and Kate is the youngest. Her mother even posts her prayers on Kate's site and they are so inspirational! Check out the site! www.caringbridge.org/visit/katemadigan
Thank you again for your wonderful ministry and your love for God and for children!

I can't believe that people are being so cruel to Heather and Adam. I don't know what is being said, but I pray to God that they get the peace they deserve. I am a NICU parent, and I understand the stress. Please point them in my direction if they ever need anybody to take care of their light work. ;) I'll set those people straight faster than anything.
God Bless you and good luck in your endeavors. You're an awesome aunt. :)

Aunt Laura
You are the aunt that anyone would like to have. Thanks for keeping us posted on Asher. Sorry to hear Heather and Adams continue to receive those comments that are so unnecessary, so unwelcome and so uncaring. Please assure them that there are so many others out here that support, love and pray for them daily. I hope Asher Basher continues to thrive and do well.

Laura,
Please ask everyone to be in intense prayer for Kate Madigan. She is struggling right now, having reactions to her treatment. Also, the hospital she is in ran out of blood platelets Tuesday. and are desperately in need of donations! Please ask everyone you know to donate blood in Kate's honor and see if they can donate platelets too. Thank you, again, Laura.

The platelets don't have to be donated for that hospital.The whole country could use donors! Only 5% of people who can donate actually do!

Yes if the truth be known, in some moments I can phrase that I approve of with you, but you may be inasmuch as other options.
