(me wearing my dog walking hat)

I have been tagged by Danita at to list 5 good things about me.

1. I am loyal . You won't find a more loyal friend.

2. I am a non-conformist.

3. If you fell down I would laugh at you, but then i would help you up.

(i have a nervous laughter. O.k, i really just think it is funny when people fall down. ha!)

4. My favorite word is iridescent.

5. I am rarely bored.


Tonight's song, Love's Divine by Seal

I dedicate this song to everyone who is hurting right now. Who's heart is breaking from being neglected or not loved enough. And to those who are suffering through a hard time. I want to tell you " You Are Important, and You Are Valuable" And " You Are Loved" Love Nita <3

I wasn't going to write this, but I feel compelled to. I am having a horrible day. Everything has went wrong today. I feel so weak right now. I am scared we are not going to make it at times. I am trying to be strong... but some days it is so hard to be strong. I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. Financially, health wise, children, it just seems like to much to handle at times. I know God is in control, but I need to see some movement soon. If anybody else is feeling this way I pray for God to give you strength and to help you through all your difficulties. And please pray for me. ~Nita~

Good news for John (for all new readers John is my husband). He is getting surgery by early next week. He will be able to stay at the same hospital. They had talked about moving him back to SLU. But luckily he gets to stay at SSM. After a few days he may be moved to new hospital though closer to the next rehab (I will post his new address as soon as he moves). He will have to go to one more rehab to learn how to live at home. He has maxed out on all he can learn at this facility. The bedsore was examined yesterday and has shrunk some but it is still very deep. And still needs surgery.

He was very happy that I had asked my friends on my blog to pray for him. He extends his thanks to you all.
Hopefully by tomorrow I will be able to post something Christmasy. I want to post a picture of our tree. Elizabeth picked it out. She was going to get a pink one but they were out so she picked a white one. It is so pretty. We love it. Though we do have a small pink one for the kitchen table.

Thanks everybody for your wonderful responses, I appreciate them all so much. I am getting ready to go to the library and look into the book on tapes. I am going to get a list and take it to John and see which ones he would like. That was a great idea suggested by a few people.
Have a great night. ~Love Nita~

Please Say a Special Prayer for John...

(me and John a few weeks ago)

I have known for the last few weeks that John was going to have another surgery. This surgery is called a flap. It is to close the bedsore because of its enormity. It has stopped tunneling but it has to be closed.

John just found out tonight that he will have to lay on his stomach for 4 to 6 weeks. He was so very down about this. We cried on the phone together. I am so incredibly sad that he has to go through this. He told me the weight of being in this condition has really hit him hard in the last few days.

I am asking everyone to please say an extra prayer for John and to please put him on your prayer lists. He is dreading this surgery and I am praying that it goes better than any one hopes. I also want to thank everyone who donated items for the Trivia night for John and our family. It was much appreciated. I have had the most tremendous amount of encouragement from all the people I have meet on my blog. I will never forget it. Thank you all for everything. ~Nita~

Tonight's song, Half Acre by Hem (4th clip) dear friends and gentle hearts.... on this scrap of paper

Please say a prayer for Elizabeth tonight too , she has been going through such a hard time with all of this. She needs alot of prayer now. Thank you.

I was just leaving a response to Katherine about coming up with ideas to help John through spending all that time on his stomach. I thought If anyone else has an idea to help John through this , I would appreciate advice.


They are still investigating the murder. I have heard that the killer was caught today. I can't write any more because there is an investigation underway. I just ask everyone to keep my son's family lifted up. They are all just devastated. Thank you, Nita
