Catching Up

It has been forever since I posted, so I thought I would do some catching up before I post about the wonderful retreat I attended. Since my last post I've had to face some roadblocks on life's path and with God's help I hope they will turn out alright. I've had two cataract surgeries, one was combined with glaucoma surgery. Both went well and I no longer have to wear glasses except to read and for the first tie since 1981 I don't have to use glaucoma drops. I've had a couple of other health issue and hope the final prognosis is good. My DH was diagnosed with a serious disease, and we are hoping all goes well with that.

But there were some good times in there too. My two youngest grandsons made their First Communions, and my twin grandsons were Confirmed.

We attended a family wedding and I managed to get a picture with all seven grandchildren dressed up and smiling for a change.

I have been doing a little stitching. I managed to finish LHN's Singing the Blues,

a PS pinkeep(with a blurry picture for which I apologize) for the retreat exchange,

and ornie for one of the twins from the 2010 JCS,

and the retreat pre-class piece by Tree of Life Samplings.

Thanks for reading and commenting. I hope to be back tomorrow with a retreat report.
Until then happy stitching!

Oh Kathy, you have a gorgeous family :) God is good and I shall keep you and your husband in my prayers. I'm going to a Holy Hour this evening during the eurcharistic exposition for First Friday and both you and your husband will be in my prayers and I'll light a candle for you.

I love your stitching and I'm so glad that we met!!! Hugs to you and much love too!

Hey there, Chickie-Chickie!! So glad you posted, those are some really special pics of the grandchildren.

You know that you are always, always in my prayers and Tom too, specially now. God will get you through it all, because we have a most merciful and loving Father.

Retreat report? Goodie, goodie!! Hope it gets posted before I leave in the morning, any chance of that? lol
