This morning my mom lost her battle with cancer...

Thank you for all your prayers.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23

Rest in peace, Mama.

"If anyone, then, asks me the meaning of our flag,

I say to him - it means just what Concord and Lexington meant; what Bunker Hill meant; which was, in short, the rising up of a valiant young people against an old tyranny to establish the most momentous doctrine that the world had ever known - the right of men to their own selves and to their liberties."
~Henry Ward Beecher

Today is Flag Day.

Many associate the American flag with government.
I personally associate the American flag with our country and her people.
The struggles and triumphs of the American spirit.

We are not perfect. But then again was there ever a country that was?

We are a country deeply loved by some all over the world and quite frankly deeply hated by some all over the world.

Never take for granted this great land of ours. There are those who want to divide us and see us fall, both domestic and abroad.
But we ALL must stand strong. Together. United.

Happy Flag Day, my fellow Americans.

An update.

My mother wanted to try chemo therapy. We are abiding by her wishes. She had her first treatment the other day.

We're hoping her body is strong enough to tolerate it and possibly slow the pancreatic cancer (metastasized to both lungs) giving her more time. We will fight with her until she is tired of fighting.

So many don't realize what we put into our bodies over a lifetime will eventually catch up to us. By the time we do, it's usually too late.
Alcohol abuse, cigarette abuse, prescription/non prescription drug abuse and a highly acidic diet will contribute to cancer.
An evil... lying in wait with a napkin tucked under its chin ready to consume anything and everything around it if given the opportunity.

I lost my dad 20 years ago to lung cancer that metastasized to his brain. It was absolutely horrible.
He smoked cigarettes for too many years as many of us foolishly have. He supported his family by working for companies that used asbestos. Without of course the knowledge of asbestos damage we know today.

Dealing with my mother's cancer has made my sweet hubs and I realize the importance of good health. Even though we have no control over our genetics, we can at least try to slow down the possibility of cancer by taking much better care of ourselves.

Thank you for your continued prayers...

I will not be posting for awhile...

We've had devastating news and my mama's prognosis is bad.

We'll be seeing an oncologist on Monday.

For those who pray, I ask for your prayers, please.

My family really needs them.

Thank you.

February 6, 1911 - June 5, 2004

Ronald Reagan

A great president.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

"We in government should learn to look at our country with the eyes of the entrepreneur, seeing possibilities where others see only problems."

"How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

"Next Tuesday all of you will go to the polls. You'll stand there in the polling place and make a decision. I think when you make that decision it might be well if you would ask yourself: Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth."

With a great sense of humor.

"I hope you're all Republicans." -to surgeons as he entered the operating room following his assassination attempt.

"Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."

"Thomas Jefferson once said, 'We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.' And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying."

We miss you, Mr. President.
