Don't act all innocent. Wipe that shocked look off of your faces! YES, you know who you are! I had a wonderful conversation with one of you via the telephone today!!! *winks*
Today was full of wonderful moments. I had a short conversation with my sister on the phone. You know, I think I knew and kept up more with her day to day life, and chatted with her more often via instant messaging and blogs while she was still living in Venezuela! Here in the states, she is on the road most of the time!
I bounced over to Missy's blog (Crownie's Mom) and was pleasantly surprised to see she had posted twice this week!! Yes, twice! Short but twice! Way to go Missy! You're on a roll. I can't wait to see the photos you plan to post of your new kitchen and office! It will be great advertisement for my brother, son, and nephew.
I also had a RLV!! I don't know if that's an actual acronym for bloggers, but hey; I figured if an RLM stands for a "Real Life Meeting", then RLV can stand for a "Real Life VISIT"!!! Pat and her lovely daughters stopped by this afternoon. What a sweet time of fellowship! Miriam mixed some tuna and served Shane his late lunch while her mom and I talked. I also got to see the jewelry she makes and sales. She uses real gemstones. She had some very beeeeuuuuutiful pieces! I just had to buy a couple! Her prices are much lower than what most beaders sale their jewelry for. Gotta love that! Pat's youngest daughter, Rachel, promised Shane a competition in "Star Wars" for the Play Station 2 system the next time they come over. He loved that! We hadn't seen Pat and the girls for many months, so we had lots of catching up to do. After they left, I realized how many topics we didn't even get to!
Now, I have a little more news concerning Miss Patti. Below is the journal update for you to read. Please remember her and the family in prayers. I appreciate it so much and know that she finds such peace in knowing so many in the family of God are remembering her and lifting her up. Each time I speak with her she mentions it.

Well, I thought I would have some answers for you today, but not yet. Today, not last night, she had more tests, the results we wont know until tomorrow.
They moved her to a very pretty private room, with a big window, hopefully when her migraines are gone she can enjoy the view. I brought her some tulips, something to brighten her day. I did not see her because she was being tested, Todd call me to tell me she had been able to go to the bathroom several times, she had not since Saturday, praise God!
The hose in her nose is killing her, her throat is raw, poor Patti, she has not been able to catch a break, but, I know she will, she is a child of the King and He loves His children!
I'll update you as soon as I find out what is wrong with her. Keep those prayers coming, God bless all of you,
