The title should be a good clue.  I am the worst blogger.  I have had a post in my mind for several days...just full of random and have not sat down and typed it. 

As much as I have ask for prayer for Crew and not to give you an update for a few days is wrong.  Please forgive me. 

I have also done such a poor job of visiting your blogs and am hoping for a good full day soon. 

I am going to start with him. I did have contact with Marie today so its a recent update.    

He is still at home and has several doctors appointments this week.  They have found a nurse plus Home Health but Marie is worn out.  He has IV's going and it is a full time job to meet all his needs.
So I guess I would say he is stable and so far being at home is working as well as it can. 

Yesterday was a wonderful family day.  Here are the Moms to my four little men.

We all went to church. Our speaker was Rick Santorum. 
I cannot tell you how impressed I was.
There was no politics...He told his story and it was a sermon we all need. 

Even with the Secret Service lined up, it never felt like it was anything other than a humble man sharing his heart. 

I went with no reason to think I would be moved .  Though I had watched all the debates I still did not have a great feeling about any of them, at least not enough to say "I am backing     ". 

That might have changed yesterday.  I am including his story and it is well worth listening to.

After church we had lunch and then headed to the park...Hot and humid so we did not stay long. 

Then Jack came home with us to spend the  night.  Now he and Parker are here for another night.  Nothing makes me happier.

Jack and I have played all day and he just passed out for the night.  Parker is on book two of The Hunger Games, so he has been telling me everything about the first one.  I see the movie in our near future. 

Jack has started Wee Ball.  From all you know about him, can you just imagine how funny he will be.  We have been talking to him about not talking when the coach talks.  I will let you know how that works out.

Peyton is going to the Broncos. 
I have  mixed emotions about that. 
I love Peyton but had really started to call Tebow my favorite player. 
Now we have a conflict of interests. 

If you are not a football lover you have no idea what those few sentences meant. 

My dear friend Dianne, who lost her husband this summer, while he waited on a liver transplant came to see me Saturday. 

We holed up in a popular restaurant and took up a table for far too long.  Hours later we left full and caught up on life.  Life is hard and it hurts and some days it seems like there is no relief. 
Today is her first birthday since Keith died.  Dianne, if you happen to read this ....
Happy Birthday!! I think I can say that Keith would want me to wish you one too from him. 

The last month I have felt like I was carrying the weight of the world.  I know that sounds dramatic, but I have 3 good friends and each one of them are in the trials of their lives. 

Totally different situations...horrible, hurtful situations....the kind that make you want to hurt someone.

None of them even know each other.   There is not one thing I can do for them but listen to them and pray.
Maybe that is all I am meant to do.  I sure would like to change their circumstances. All three need a giant miracle.   

Ok, enough random for tonight.  I will be back soon.  Thanks for still coming to visit me.

Life can be a trial sometimes eh?
I am so glad things are going well for wee Crew... I hope he can be completely mended and lives a long, happy life.

Theresa, dear....just remember Santorum is a politician NOT a preacher! Politicians will tell you what you want to hear, and they will use whatever they need to manipulate people for votes. that doesn't mean they deserve to be elected or that they will deliver what they promise. There is a very good reason that this country was founded on the concept of separation of church and state. Vote based on all the issues not just their professed religious beliefs.

Hi there girly! I am happy to hear that Crew is enjoying some at home time! Hope that Marie will get some rest and feel all ready for this day's challenges!

Sweet family time with the grands:) Nothing sweeter to me! Hope that all of your friends will feel the love and prayers surrounding them! SO many are going thru tough times these days, I have some in my family too!

BIG HUGS and continued prayers!

I love this post :):):) You have stolen my heart ... sometimes we do have so much on our hearts & minds, that we just HAVE to be random! You described such a beautiful weekend with your loved ones ... and that in and of itself is worth a thousand rejoices :)

I really needed to read this post this morning as I have been stagnant with my own blog & ideas. Right now I'm just focused on our own family events of the past month, and it's a challenge for me to sit down, clear my mind & just write. But you've given me some inspiration on this Tuesday morning ...

Hope you have a blessed week!

Little Crew is proof of the power of prayer. There are times we feel so helpless because that's all we can do and we forget how powerful it can be.

I'm so glad ya got to spend some quality time with your good friend. I'm sendin' her a bleated birthday wish too.

God bless ya sweetie and enjoy this day!!! :o)

He's such a precious baby boy! Glad that he's home and some is there to help out. Lately, there have been people close to me in major need of prayer as well. I know the feeling of helplessness but prayer changes things.

so good Crew is home...where he belongs!
my son heard santorum speak last night at Gettysburg college...I am very interested in what he has to say about it!
And happy spring!
