Day Five - A Place I have Been

Back in February of 2012, a friend and I took a trip to Joplin, Missouri after the tornados hit there and that little trip is burned in my heart and soul forever.  Seeing how the town was destroyed and how the community and surrounding communities came together to rebuild, was amazing!  It was a nice reminder of people standing together in life!  We should all carry one another!  The storms will come and storms will destroy but love and loyalty will always stand!

Friday Afternoon Update

Well, I haven't done updates in a while and since I am home bored, thought I should start. :)

Tuesday I had surgery. Yuck! Had a kidney stone that wouldn't pass so the doctor went in and shattered it and I got a stint put in between my kidney and bladder. Yuck! Uncomfortable but glad to have it fixed! I will heal in no time! 

My sister came into town to help my Momma take care of me and it has been such a blessing. Last surgery I had in Arkansas was a nightmare. Spent lots of days trying to walk myself to the bathroom or make something to eat and would be in so much pain that I would end up just not eating cause it hurt so bad to get up and fix myself something. My sister was in town for a couple of days for that surgery too but had to go back and when she went back.... I had nobody helping me. It is amazing to have family here helping me! I am so blessed! 

I have had some awesome friends send me flowers and treats and many visitors drop by to check on me! 

And of course Momma's home cooking and the dogs loving on me.....

God is so awesome!!!!!

Relay For Life 2013

Every year, my family comes together to help bring awareness to cancer.  This year was the first year that I have been able to join them.  I have always been in Arkansas so living back home in Texas allowed me the opportunity to join the family at Relay For Life and help spread awareness regarding cancer.

Regina was in the contest to see who could get the most signatures on her t-shirt.....

And Ethan wanted to be like his Tia....

So they both raced for signatures.... it was cute!

We were able to honor the ones we have lost to cancer as well as our survivors in a candlelit service. 

After the candlelit vigil, Kenly, Noah, and I were in a dance off.....that we all got tagged out of.... haha but we had fun while we were still in.....

All and all, it was a great night with family supporting a cause that is very dear to all of us.
