One day at a time....

..That's what Gracie is teaching me (with our Dad at the helm, of course). She's had good days, and we're heading off to the vet in a little bit to check her blood. She'll get some acupuncture, too. Last week it jazzed her up, and it made us both feel better. The lesson here is really that we're only promised this day. Gracie wakes up with a smile on her face and is still rarin' to go. Skinny girl, but eats enough to chase the ball and squirrels.

Robert is heading to Iraq. His wife sent me the send-off pictures from Ft. Hood and those made me cry. 12 to 16 months. I worry about him, and will just have to put him in God's hands.

Like just about everything else, right?

This song from Downhere has comforted me these days:



Yes, Marc Martel sounds (and looks) a lot like Freddie Mercury as evidenced by this little number he did for a church that had a message based on Bohemian Rhapsody. Incredible:

"we're only promised this day"

..good thought Karen!

Please keep us posted about Robert. Fortunately things in Iraq seem to be quieter these days.. probably better to be in Iraq than Afghanistan.

I kept checking back here, looking for an update on Gracie. Sounds like her courage is good! Hope & pray this is a good week for you, healthwise. I will remember Robert. Also, enjoyed the videos...
