Mom is still VERY sore and stiff from her fall but she is moving a little better with each day. We have doc appointments next week to both re-check her bladder infection one day, and to see the neurologist another. I would REALLY covet your prayers that the next medication he decides to try will be MUCH easier of a transition for poor mom. Meanwhile, I was able to find a service that can help me out in the future on those occasions when I simply have to be somewhere (or just need a little time to myself) and mom is not able to come. I felt soo bad for her at the dentist with me on Tues., I just couldn't bear to have a repeat of that. It is kind of costly, but we tried it out yesterday while I ran and had my hair done (it was soo over due ~ I was feeling quite horrid, haha) and ran a quick errand as well. Mom usually comes with me on these kind of days, but this way she was able to just stay put and didn't miss her nap either. I enjoyed my time with Jessie, and mom and the caregiver got along really well. Sooo hopefully in the future, this can used for those days when it is just necessary.
I did not get nearly the sewing done I had planned this week with everything else going on, but I did make up a few more bibs. I need to get Melody's wrapped up, as she is getting closer and closer. The doc "thinks" she should make it until at least 37 weeks, but maybe not. Sooo we pray and hope and meanwhile Mel is starting to feel LARGE and just done with the whole thing. I think most of us mom's can relate. ; ) Those last two or three weeks of pregnancy are just NOT GOOD, lol.

The week-end stretches out in front of us with not much planned, the weather is suppose to be almost perfect, and since we worked diligently ALL last week-end we can relax and just enjoy this one. YAY! How grateful I am that we have these week-ends to do just this, and mom is able to spend time with her other daughters.
I think James intends to post a "little" pre-view of what his message will be on Sundays, so I (like a good mom, haha) will copy and post them here in case they might be an encouragement to any of you. It certainly sounds like it will be one that will speak VOLUMES to me. Enjoy your week-end. Blessings to you all! Debbie
I grew up in Upland, CA, a city that sits at the bottom of Mount Baldy. I can remember looking at the highest peak of the mountain from my house, squinting my eyes to see if I could see someone on the top of it. I was surprised to learn later that the highest peak I could see was not in fact the highest, it was the closest. The hills that seemed the biggest to me were actually blocking my view of the massive mountain behind it. This basic truth sheds light on a profound principle. The biggest "mountain" in your life has a lot more to do with your point of view than anything else ~ the biggest mountain is the one that is right in front of you. Relationships, careers, finances, addictions, and sicknesses of the body and mind all have the potential to be be mountains in our lives. Their daunting appearance can be crippling. Unsuccessful attempts to climb these mountains can leave us feeling defeated and discouraged. But, could it be the mountain we're staring at isn't the biggest, just the closest? Could it be there is a higher peak that is blocked from our view? Jesus said, "When I am lifted up, I will draw all people to myself." Every mountain crumbles at the base of Calvary, at the foot of the cross. The challenges in our lives are very real, and left to ourselves they could overpower us. But no matter how great or high the mountain in front of you my seem, the cross of Christ is greater still. That's what we will be talking about this Sunday at Revive, come join us at Bear Valley Middle School in Escondido at 10 am. God Bless, Pastor James
