An Update!

I am very sorry for the length of time it has been since my last update. As you may imagine, things have been pretty busy and I just now am having a chance to update this blog!

Outside of internship, my time has been spent doing the basic household stuff, and working on Asher and Jacob's Friends. For those who do not know, this is a volunteer group dedicated to praying for and offering support to parents who have lost a child or have one who is seriously ill. If you would like to join, just go to the link on the adorable picture of my monkey nephew!

Other than that, I have been enjoying my work at the church! I just now got back from a Harvest Party. The children were adorable as usual. I went as "Olga the Sleepy Viking!" I took a short nap this afternoon and figured why get out of my pajamas when it is a costume party! I knew I could work it into my costume somehow. It worked wonderfully and was oh so comfortable!

The town has been very windy and cold this week. At the halloween parade I nearly froze my toes off. In actuality, I love this time of year. It is so pretty and the cold gets me in the mood for the upcoming holidays. As a native northwesterner, I have learned to appreciate the rain and "dreary" days. My perfect way to spent it would be curled up in my pajamas with some hot chocolate and a good movie (I read enough for school and work!). I am looking forward to having a tree in the corner of the room too, as it makes the mood just right!

Well, that is all for now. Please check out the updates on the friends list below. This time of year tends to be rough for so many families.

I am writing to request your help. My nephew Marc, 18, has just been diagnosed with Schiztophrenia. Could you please include him in the prayers requests. His parents have dissowned him and My Partner and I will be taking custody of him when he is able to leave the hospital. He has been in hosp for over 10 weeks now with only a couple of 2 day passes to come to our home Please pray that we can take him on, he has no med insurance and his meds are extremely expensive, but just the prayers, I know God will not let us down.
Also I have a chronic illness myself. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, fibromyalgia, arthritis and neuropathic pain. I am on fentanyl 24hrs day along with huge doses of codeine. So I tire easily but I am determined to give this young man a chance, he deserves it.
God Bless...susan
