Phew!!! I made it..

Nice! january is OVER! But I must admit, I had a new take on the whole miserable month due to the last comment I got. You are right Jennie Jo, Dec. would be a hard act to follow. And Jeff Judkins. What a pretty great guy. I'm sure I had a crush on him as well. As well as whom? Anyone pretty much. But he had such a cute smile. And it's OK. Cause he did marry Ron's old girlfriend.

As pretty much everyone knows by now, we got some pretty discouraging news about my health, or lack of it as the case may be. My family held a fast that people were involved in all over the US. and even outside the US. It was overwhelming and humbling. I have been carried by such a outpouring of love and support. Many friends and neighbors met at our home to open the fast with prayer. I walked in the room as everyone had arrived. I had neighbors that were not members of my faith. I had friends of friends that I don't know very well, and I had all my children. Not the soap opera mind you. My mother and father were there as well. Tears started streaming. What a lucky person I am.

But most of all, I need to pay tribute to the sweetest man who is my husband. Words could and will never express the love he has shown me. There are many many times during our adventures together, when he has deserved better. We have been through many tough things, like all I suppose, and I am forever grateful to his stubbornness to stick with me through thick and thin. And I'm not speaking weight of course! After 32+ years of marriage, I am more grateful now than ever. The fabric of our tapestry is so full of richness with threads of all colors and hues. It wouldn't be nearly as beautiful without all those different shades.

I love you and thank you my sweetheart.


  1. So sweet Shar. Mascara all over my face again.

  2. Shar - we were so sad we couldn't make it to open the fast with you guys....but we were there in spirit and we were fasting along with everyone else. You are in our thoughts and prayers....we love you!

  3. How have I never come to your blog before? I know Jame has mentioned it a time or two. I am laughing my head off about the Rice Krispie treat in the garbage story. I totally would have eaten it. So funny. Hang in there Shar. So many people are rooting for you! Love ya!

  4. I too was laughing at the Rice Krispie story. I have loved reading your blog and wanted you to know that you are such an inspiration to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

  5. Shar, here I am so far away. But I too was there in spirit and fasting with you. The Lord must truly think you're wonderful that he trusts your strengh so much. Such kind words about Ron. I say ditto about Joe. Who would have guessed thirty years ago that we would be where we are today and that our husbands would be soo great? Jennifer
