Hello, I’ve been debating posting on here for several days and finally decided to write. I’m in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and we’ve had wild fires since last Monday night. We were on level 2 ‘get set’ at one point. Our future daughter in law’s family has all been evacuated from their homes. As far as we know, none of them have lost their homes at this time, but they haven’t been allowed to go back to check. I would really appreciate prayers from you, we can use it!
On August 7, We moved my mom in with us from an assisted living facility. She was not doing well there at all due to the visitor restrictions from Covid, it’s been a bumpy ride, but she has settled in well with us and is very happy here. My middle son, Connor is buying a house and once he’s settled, he will move my mom in with him. I do have good news about Connor! He and his gf, Jocelyn got engaged on August 24. They are planning a very small ceremony in October and then will have a bigger wedding next spring or summer. I’m thrilled she will be joining the family!
On August 10, my oldest son, Cory and his wife, Amanda announced they were expecting! It would be our first grandchild! Unfortunately, this past Friday night, Amanda lost the baby. We are heartbroken, but we know everything is in God’s timing. It hurts to go through this and I feel so bad for them.
I will be starting a king size quilt for a wedding gift for Connor & Jocelyn. This will be the first king size quilt I’ve made! I hope it turns out ok!
Thanks for listening and letting me share my good and bad news!
