Funeral

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Tomorrow afternoon, we will be at a funeral for Lee’s brother. He died about a week and 1/2 ago, but he lived in another state. All of the other family members live here, so our service is tomorrow.  We were blessed with the help and support from those closest to us, we followed a basic […]

Wedding Rings~Photography Practice

Friday, May 30th, 2008

I mentioned that Lee got a new wedding band when he was first released. I took a photo of it the other day. How blessed I was to have him help me at home and be able to touch his precious hands. I saw this idea and wanted to practice it in case I ever […]

Blessings

Friday, May 30th, 2008

I was listening to Christian radio the other day and heard the speaker say this, “How many blessings do we miss out on today because we weren’t thankful for the blessings we received yesterday?” I don’t know, but it’s surely something good to ponder. I try to always count my blessings, but I know that […]

Job search

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

Lee’s job search isn’t going so well. He’s applied at many places and hasn’t had call backs. He said the conversations go like this– “We have jobs available in the following areas…..” Then Lee fills out the paperwork and goes to talk with someone. They read over his paper and see he has a criminal […]

Relief

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

I drove past the prison the other day. It’s off the highway and sometimes when I’m going from point A to point B, I have to drive past it. I can only say it’s such a relief to drive by and know my husband is not there. When I drove past it the other day, […]

Keeping my mouth shut!

Monday, May 26th, 2008

As Lee and I are adjusting to being together again, I’ve decided that shutting my mouth is one of the best marriage tools around! I realized one day that I wanted to tell him (and tell him and tell him again) how to do or not do something. I bit my tongue (literally)  and prayed, […]

What a blessing

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

Over this past week and a half, I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the highway. I was driving back and forth to Lee’s facility and running him places. A few weeks ago, James and I drove down to see my brother and his wife. Lots of highway miles! Yesterday I was really down […]

So tired

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Lee is so tired right now. He’s not used to being awake all day long. When he was in prison, he used sleeping as a coping mechanism. His sleep habits were partially due to depression. It was so much easier for him to sleep the day away rather than thinking about everything that weighed on […]
