Do you believe in it? Or is our live predestined?
When I saw this in the mail I was wishing for luck!
$7.00 better than a poke in the eye :)

I have been told we are lucky to live in the area we do.
Luck had nothing to do with it. It was a lot of hard work on my husband's part.

People say you are so lucky to have such a wonderful daughter.
That I should figure out just how I raised her and write a book.
Here it is I paid attention. To EVERYTHING.
She is an educated accomplished young mother who I am sure with her wonderful husband will raise an
amazing daughter of her own.
(If you notice they have the same look when they are concentrating)

I believe in a bit of luck I do not believe that your whole life is one big chance.
Lucky you I am showing you my progress. I should be finished soon.
If you have a little room in your prayers say one for my husband. He is having some complications
that he needs to work through.
God creates. People rearrange.

My favorite part about the north are the loons. I love listening to them when we go to MN. So for me, you are lucky to enjoy them more than me!

*****he'll be fine...just remind him of all that he has been through emotionally and physically in the past year. there is always
the need for adjustments after a
life altering ordeal and to be patient. the hardest part is the a mantra that i use in prayer. dear st. anthony, please help me to find my mind and
dear st. jude, once anthony finds my minds again, please help me to have the patience to adjust all the circuits again and be grateful
for what i have in this life! it's only been a year...and with you at his side he can't miss...all is possible and will be wonderful again!!! you have our prayers and

The bible tells us that God is the master potter. He molds us and makes us into the image of Christ. This was a interesting lesson that I had to learn in my life. Remember that your husband is in the hands of a master potter that will mold him and make him in Christ's image. Our duty as the clay is to allow God to do his work. Remember that you are the clay to, just on a different wheel the master has spinning.
God bless you and your husband, my prayers are here with you.

You are right about luck. Life is the result of our efforts. I love the picture of your daughter and Miss Baby! I always have room in my prayers for you and David. Hope all is well.

Julia said...

Dear Cathy, I'm sorry about David having some complications. I've added him to my prayer list. I pray that he'll have a full recovery.

I think that you are lucky to have Miss Baby for a granddaughter... I'm sure that her upbringing is going to require lots of effort and she will turn out to be a good person,

Big hugs for all of you. Prayers on the way. JB

Prayers going up...good job, Mom!

Rose H (UK) said...

Hope it's just a little hiccup with David and he'll soon be back on the right track, you're both in my thoughts :o)
Congrats on your little windfall, strangely I won £10 on the lottery this weekend, not much but better than nothing!
Daughters are such a blessing, as I'm sure are grand daughters.
Sending hugs

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

I love this pic of your two sweeties.
Prayers are now being sent for David. I hope it is nothing serious and things work out soon for him. I know it is hard on you but hang in there sweet friend.
Sending you much love

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Thinking of David I forgot to tell you how much I love your piece your almost finished.
It is beautiful

AshTreeCottage said...

I totally agree with you. We all have free will. A good life is followed by good choices. We all are so blessed to live in a country where we have the choice to live a happy and fulfilling life. I will keep your husband in my prayers. Have a wonderful weekend in your beautiful area.

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Prayers and thoughts for David and for you too. :) Your granddaughter is such a cutie patootie. Enjoy her while she so little. My oldest grandson is now 16, 6'6" tall and 275lbs. It seems like just yesterday he was sitting on my lap telling Nana how much he loved her. Time sure flys.

Nezzy said...

Oh sweetie, prayin' right now!!!

Loved that Joseph Casey true.

I'd rather switch the word luck with blessins! It's the way I fly. Heeehehehe!!!

God bless and have a fantastic weekend my friend! :o)

camp and cottage living said...

I think of your husband whenever I say my prayers.
Funny your daughter and g'daughter do have the same look! You sound
like a proud Mama!

Dianne said...

Lovely post as always. Wonderful children are a result of much love, time and prayers. I'm thankful for my three. Love the pic of Mom and Daughter.

Dianne said...

Meant to add that I will definitely keep David and you in my prayers for a quick and full recovery!

yaya said...

I'll keep David in my prayers..I know how little back steps can be so frustrating when you go through so much to get well. Your daughter and grandkiddo are so cute there! Luck is a funny thing..I have two sayings that always come back to me when talking about luck..first one is really my late father-in-laws: "The harder I work the luckier I get"..the second one is a typical surgeon saying when something goes really smooth when all the junk hits the fan: "If I could choose between being really good or luck..give me luck every time! I too believe we make our own luck most times, but then..well, I also love the thought of special blessings, fairy dust, and just a little good magic! I love the flower pot hooking! So pretty! Have a good and lucky weekend!
