The move got postponed to July 12. My back went out because I am stubborn and moved a box that my husband told me to wait on. We have wonderful sweet neighbors that said they would help us but they don't have a day off work until the 12th.

Hope that everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Thank you to all the sweet prayers and get wells.
You are all so sweet and I am so glad that I found this site and met all of you. Each and everyone of you are in my prayers as well. God bless.

I want to thank my dear sweet friends who are taking care of my loved ones with beautiful tokens. You are all so wonderful. It will take me a while after the move but I will be back to honor your wonderful loved ones.

I have my wonderful husband and an awesome son who is 11.Together my son and I like to do scrapbooking and take pictures. I am working on writing children's books but have not gotten a chance to get them published. My son has also joined me in writing a book.
I also like to collect recipes and try them out on my 2 guys. I love music and reading about my favorite musicians. I even reintroduced my son to Jan and Dean.
I found this site when I was looking for info on my grandfather.
I am enjoying looking through this site and hopefully find more loved ones.

I want to thank everyone for the beautiful you for making me feel welcome.

I found some of my favorite Native American sayings that I would like to share with you and hope that ya'll enjoy them and find them comforting as I do.

There is no death,
only a change of worlds.

Don't be afaid to cry
it will free your mind of sorrowful thoughts

If the eyes had no tears
the soul would have no rainbows

They are not dead
who live in the hearts
they leave behind.

When you were born
you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.

I have found some more family members.

RE: Thank you
Hi Laura -

You are so welcome as I enjoyed visiting your Daddy on his

Sounds like you're getting somewhat better concerning your
back problems and that makes me happy. Maybe by the 12th
all your problems will be history!

TX weather next weekend will be beautiful with triple-digit
temperatures Fri, Sat, and Sun! At least in the D/FW area!
I'm not sure where Winters is but hope they experience the
same weather as we will. TX is a big state so you never
know, it could be snowing there! :)

Enjoy your week and good luck on the 12th!
Your friend,
Jean Ann

RE: Prayers
Dear Laura, Thankyou for your kindness and concern. It's been a rough road. I deeply appreciate being on the prayer list. It's not an understatement to say with CRPS you need divine intervention. With love, Allison
