Wandering Wednesday #13

Wandering Wednesday-2This week has been especially trying for our family 🙂 Ty had surgery on his hip… He pretty much cannot walk or put any weight on his left side. My work load around the house has increased this week, helping him, doing what he used to do around the house, and helping take care of him. This to shall pass and he will be happier and healthier with his hip feeling better.

This week we got word that my Grandma who we just visited while in CA fell again and broke her pelvis. Since then she has been in and out of ICU. My heart breaks for her and for the fact that I can’t be there with her. I reflect on the special bond I have with her and all the memories we have shared throughout the years… She is the one who taught me how to sew. It is because of her that I love to do it! I am so grateful that while we were there we took the time to take the kids to go visit her… We just don’t know how much longer we will be able to do that.

With all this being said I am so grateful for this time of year and the opportunity we have to give to others, and spend time with our friends and loved ones! Have you found all those special presents yet??? Maybe Blogmas could help you find just what you are looking for!

Before we get started I wanted to announce starting in the new year we will be having guest co-hosts at the link ups! If you are interested in becoming a guest co host please let me know here!

    I hope your son and your grandma continue to heal. 🙁 My vote for this week’s LinkUp is the post with 28 soup recipes. I LOVE soup, especially in the winter, and there are some amazing ones at that post.
