Quilt With Us

Hi! I know its been awhile since I have posted anything. So very much was going on all at once. I have been staying rather healthy though, and that is a good thing. Just a few days feeling bad. I am thrilled over a few up coming situations ,such as Jeff is celebrating on Dec 1st. 10 years since he had is open heart operation. He was 26 years old then, and was a very sick, and had a value put into his heart, after they cut 2 inches of his rotton heart away, all due from a bad tooth. It was touch and go back then and he lived in the hospital for 3 months(me too).
We have so very much to be thankful for. Then that is when his kidney's had gone down and he lived on that machine for many years. He is doing great! His new Kidney is working 110 percent, says Jeff's doctor. Looks wonderful, and he is working, still for the weather channel... had a TV show on the travel channel a week ago... and he is also back in college. He is living life to the fullest.

I had my trip up to MD. to see my daughter, and to tow back her hubby's car. My DH, and, I had such a fun time up there while visiting. Beautiful weather, opened windows... and the last of the garden, of which I love tomatoes and I helped them get rid of them. I was the tomato queen! LOL
What was extremely sad, and hard to handle, ......my daughter Courtney, was 7 weeks Pregnant and we just took movies of her glowing and so happy. Then while up there she wanted me to hear the heart beat of the baby...she had heard it the week before. This time though, there was a problem... and the doctors said she was going to loose the baby. Two weeks later she lost the baby. The baby was wanted so badly by us all. Courtney took it hard.. and I held my own feelings in, to try to keep her up. I was so happy I was with her during that time. Afterwards... it hit me pretty hard too. I had wanted that baby so badly for them, and for me

Yet, now all is good... she is ready and cleared to start again. Plus they are expected here Sunday, moving back to Florida. They sold the house, and decided they missed family so much. I am thrilled by this. BIg Time! I have been busy getting all of my holiday plans in order. I have been busy too sewing and quilting away for Christmas gifts.. I have checked this site out almost everyday. Just didn't post. I could not really talk yet about the baby.
I feel better about everything now... and I go to court on the15 Th. ( pictures of Jeff) . The last deal was cancelled.( Its been a tough year...) It took all this time since Aug 23rd to get another date... I will say I shall be bloody glad it will be over at some point. I really cannot wait. 5 years now.

Having.. Thanksgiving at my parents this year... with my daughter and hubby there which is going to be so great.. Its going to be a wonderful time.!!!!!!! We have so much to be thankful for, and God has been so good to us. Bought all of the stuff for my grape-nut pudding. Cost 30 last year to make... this year 50.00. Oh my.....yet it will be made no matter what its been in our family over 100 years.

I do wish each and everyone of you a good healthy holiday..... lots of good food, that all of our prayers get answered. I have missed you all!
God bless you all , Hugs Morgan oxoxoxoxoxoxoxoCourtney and Me!!

Hello Morgan, it is so good to hear from you again! I am thrilled that you & your handsome son are enjoying good health. And very sorry and sad about the loss of Courtney's baby. I had one miscarraige and still think about that baby 35 yrs later. It will be wonderful for your DD & SIL to be near you. I'm learning a bit about court cases and you have been waiting so long. How frustrating to be ready to go and have it postponed! Best of luck.

Morgan--i am so very glad to hear from you. Jeff looks great--what a lot to be thankful for in his life. I'm so sorry about your DD and her baby--it's such a heart breaking experience, and it is important to take time to grieve. She is blessed in having a mom who understands and is grieving with her. I'll say a prayer for your hearing--I know you want to get this thing settled (literally and figuratively). God bless you--stay healthy

ItS good to hear from you and that you are doing so well. I'm sorry for your loss of the baby, but, there may be another one soon. Jeff does look so good. Thanksgiving is a good time to contemplate about all your blessings. Your grape-nut pudding sounds good. I've never heard of it either.

Great pictures Morgan and as always, so good to hear from you. I know how up and down the year has been for you, but you are holding on to the many blessings, as is right! God has been good to you and has carried you through much and will continue to be with you.
Your pudding sounds very interesting - I have never heard of it. I'm sure the family is going to love it.

So glad to hear from you Morgan. So happy for Jeff - prayers that he continues to be blessed with good health. So sorry for Courtney - I've been there and that is so very hard. I hope she soon will be blessed with a little one. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Morgan you indeed have so much to be thankful for. I am sorry to hear about the loss of the baby. But time heals and soon there may be another one on the way. We are all blessed in our lives and we must remember to give thanks everyday for the blessings and the not so good stuff as it makes us stronger.

God Bless you and your family and I hope the holidays are joyful for you all.

Morgan, it was so nice to hear from you! I'm so sorry to hear about Courtney losing the baby. I know that was so heartbreaking for everyone, but it was a blessing that you were there with her. I know you will be so happy to have her living close to you again. I was telling my dh the other day that if there was any wish I could have granted it would be that all our kids & grandkids would live within 50 miles of us. That is great news about how well Jeff is doing. Also, great news about your health situation. Some of us have sure had a rough yr, but 2011 is going to be better!!!

So very sorry for the loss of the baby...never easy and so many dreams. Pray she recovers quickly and is blessed with another chance. Jeff looks great and that is a blessing for the family to hold onto...

Glad to have you back with us again. It is great that Jeff is doing well! So sorry to hear of Courtney's loss. That has to be one of the hardest things to endure. Glad she is moving closer to you so that you can help her through this. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season also!
