Feelin the love!

It’s been busy.

it’s been hectic.

The rages of Alzheimer’s continue, as well as the rages of those fun teenage hormones and attitudes.

But amidst it all we are surviving the chaos of a crazy March and April schedule.

We are surviving thanks in part to the prayers and help of so many of you!! Many dear friends have brought us meals!  And what a blessing they are for this weary, and mentally exhausted mom.  I can not tell you the emotional revival that occurs when I come home to find a delicious home cooked meal all ready for our family!  Ahhhhhh, just breath in the sigh of relief with me. 🙂

And here is a pic of another HUGE blessing!!!

Yep a guy up in a tree………. but it is so much more than that!! After cutting some branches off this old, dead tree.  This is what happened next

This group in the woods helped to pull that old dead tree down!!  Our Sunday School class came and immensely blessed our family with completing a ton of spring yard work for us!

 Now every time I pull into the driveway I can breath a big sigh of relief, and feel so blessed, instead of freaked out about the big task before me! 🙂

Sports have been the mainstay these days, when both Tyler and Madi have games at the same time, I bring my bike along and ride back and forth between the two games.

 My mom and dad came for a visit on Easter day.  I enjoyed having time to cook a real dinner and spend time with my parents!

 Our family also got to speak to a committee with the Pa General Assembly on living with Younger Onset Alzheimer’s.  It was a great experience for all of us, and great for the kids to take part in the legislative process!

I also enjoyed watching Tyler “coach” some of the kids in the neighborhood on how to throw a fastball and a curveball.  Came out one day to find him working with the kids, I secretly snapped a pic with my iPhone.  I guess it’s not a secret anymore! 🙂

Love the spring wildflowers blooming in our woods!  I am such a geek like that, I really enjoying checking out the flowers in our woods.  🙂

Yes, it is so busy, and I can feel so frustrated and overwhelmed with it all.  But as Curt continues to say, “It is what it is, and God is in this!”  There are moments where I do feel blessed even during the storm.  Thanks for letting me share a few of those blessings with you today! 🙂
