Pray for Stellan

Please pray for Stellan...he has been in the hospital with some very serious heart issues for the past few days, and it seems to be getting worse. You may know Stellan's Story, but if not, I encourage you to read about this little miracle. He desperately needs another miracle to survive, so please, if you have some time, pray for Stellan and his medical team, as well as his family.

Yet another Wednesday.....

Look what was delivered to my door..... :) And it did put a smile on my face. Josh was even willing to give it a test drive too! It only weighs 12 lbs., but it also has such a great suction that it pulls itself. Gotta love that!

George, Josh and Lauren have decided to play tennis. George is an old pro. He played in high school is quite good at it. With the wonderful weather that we have had, they went to the courts last night and plan on it tonight. Me..... I stunk at it in my 20's and haven't really tried since.

Josh started his new job.... he LOVES it! He comes home with so much to talk about. It is so cute, he pulls up in his car just smiling :) I think life is finally good for him now. SIGH..... Thank goodness.... as a mom, that is all you really want for your children. To be happy and safe.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hump Day

It's Wednesday, only two more days till the weekend. In my world, weekends are for grocery shopping and cleaning, so.....hmmmm am I really ready for the weekend? I don't know.

I do know, allot of good things are going on in the Barrett house! Josh is singing his song..... I gotta job..I gotta job..I gotta job..hey...hey..hey..hey..hey! (he has a job at Dairy Queen) He decided that he wasn't quite ready for the college thing right now, so he was looking for an "adult job". He is now a happy employee of "THE DAIRY", its a local dairy manufacturer in town.

I bought a new sweeper. The new Hoover Platinum..... It is on its way here. I can't wait. I never thought in a million years that I would ever get excited about a vacuum. Yep, just mark that up as to another sign of getting older. hehehe
Speaking of getting excited about the little things in life, my fridge is fixed. The dispenser has been broken for about a month, and it just took me about 3 weeks to call a repair man. Don't ask me why? I have no answer. When you are used to the little luxuries in life and you don't have them, MAN do you miss them. It's working again....... HAPPY DAYS! Okay, it doesn't take much to make me happy, right?

Oh, can't leave George out. As I type is studying for midterms. He was able to get our main computer up and running again after a virus hit us, with the help of very nice friend, Thanks Todd! We apprieciate the help...

Lauren is taking swimming lessons at the YMCA, so she won't drown this summer. HA! She is progressing great, she just needed that extra help, and now she is ready to get her "license" for the pool so she can go in the deep end.

Our Zoe girl, is doing wonderfuly after surgery. We were a little worried due to her immune disorder, going into this, but it needed to be done.

Well, that's whats going on in the Barrett house. Crazy, but... it's all good right now. :) I'll keep it that way!

Have a wonderful day!

Great news

Sorry for the lack of blogging. There has been so much abnormal craziness around here.

I am going to apologize ahead of time, I am going to let go....... I am going to let it flow.....

But I just want to shout from the roof tops! There were some medical test that I needed done that had some questionable issues. But after a long agonizing wait, results are NORMAL!

I just want to thank you all for caring and for the many prayers. I love you guys!

Boy does that kind of stuff put everything else into perspective? Gets you thinking all kinds of CRAZY! :)

I think the last time I prayed that hard was when George was in for heart problems, my dad went into have heart surgery and when Lauren was a day old and stopped breathing. Why, why do we wait until its something sooo serious to pray like that? Is it just me? I try not to pray for myself, because I feel that I am being greedy. Is that silly? I have no problem with praying for others. And I feel since I have gotten diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and deal with my pain on a daily basis, that I am more in touch with God. I felt so guilty about that for such a long time.

Prayer........ It is a powerful thing. God is wonderful. And I am sooooo blessed!
