Bursary and Scholarships

My baby girl won a $500.00 bursary yesterday and she was notified from the school that she has to be at the awards ceremony next week to accept a scholarship. They won't tell her which one or how much because it's a surprise to all of the winners. I am SO VERY PROUD of her! I know she will do an amazing job in college. She's been accepted into the Police Foundations course at 4 different colleges but she chose to go to our local college...which makes this Mama bear very happy that she'll still be at home :)

Want a Do Over for this weekend!

Well this weekend has been a rough one. I had my eye surgery on Friday. Miss Pearl fell and sprained her ankle while I was away in Ottawa for the operation and refused to even try to put any weight on it until yesterday so my parents had to carry her around all weekend. She finally started walking (with a bit of a limp) on it yesterday. Good thing because I can't lift anything for 2 weeks.

Then my oldest daughter was in a car accident yesterday. They were trying to avoid being hit by another car and her boyfriend sped up to get out of the way of it. They hit loose gravel and rolled in the ditch. Thank God everyone is OK. She's got a bit of a sore neck and back and baby granddaughter Evelynn cut her toe a bit - no stitches just a bandaid that she won't keep on. Her boyfriend is OK and his brother who was in the back seat with the baby hurt his arm shielding Evelynn when they rolled.  Here's a photo of the car.
I sure hope this week is better. But ya know? God is Amazing to take care of all of us the way He always does! We are all truly blessed and thankful for HIS LOVE.

Still around and kickin'

Hi everyone,

Just a quick note to let you all know I'm still around. Had a couple of trips to Ottawa in the past month and an eye operation yesterday. I'm not sure if I mentioned this on my blog before or not, but I had a brain aneursym when I was 24 that left me blind for a year and a half and the eyesight never came back in my right eye. Over the years it started turning to the outside of the eye to the point of giving me double vision. It got worse over the past 2 years so I decided to get it fixed. I still don't have full vision out of that eye and never will due to the scarring that occured when the aneurysm burst but the operation I had will help with the double vision and will stop my eye from moving to the far right as it was. It's only been one day and I already notice a huge difference. Hurts like hell right now because they had to cut the muscles on both sides of the eye and I have stitches in my eye but I'm hopeful that I'll feel better in a few days.

I'll save y'all and I won't post a pic cause it's pretty gross looking...LOL

Hope to catch up on all my fav blogs soon.

Prayer Request

Hi Everyone,

I would like to ask that you keep my Mom in your prayers. She just got back from a visit to the doctors today and was told her kidneys are failing. She's always been a pretty healthy person so this is hard news. She goes back to the doctor tomorrow and will see a Urologist soon.

We all know what the strength of prayer can do so all prayers are greatly appreciated :)

God Bless.
