Tis easier to chew the lump in small bites, isn't it? Sometimes I have had to cling to the FATHER in moments, rather than hours or days. But HE knows all that and good thing HE is always there for us, as for sure, no human ever will or can be.

susie ... notice it's an uphill thing too? i'm huffing & puffing with life at the moment and feel like i've slipped down a few of these ... so had to stop to catch my breath!

elizabeth ... amen - the Lord is our only constant ... others will let us down ...

Dear Saija...I was just wondering if you were at the beach or at the salt mines.

I thought you were going to have few days off.

I am off today and don't have to work until 7 tomorrow evening. I have been working on my picture site. I have been trying to get all the pictures I took out west at the reunion on to my phototmug site which Betty has attached as a link to the Rivers Reunion site. My biggest problem is getiing all the names put on as to who is who!!!

After all forty years is a long time and some of those "kids" have changed their looks!!

Catch you later....Love Terry

terry ... taking photo's is great - but it is a lot of work! ... i went to my high school reunion, 4 years ago - and it was wonderful to see old friends - though i must say the women were definitely more recognizeable than the men! ... don't work too hard!

One day at a time Saija .... one day at a time.

Terry said...

Yes I guess the girls were easy to recognize...The only thing is that I was the only white haired one there until the last day, one girl who came..We used to be best friends ever since grade 7...well SHE was white too and I asked her, "Where were you when I needed you?!! I will send you a picture of what was left of our class at the reuinon.

I guess only the hair dressers would know for sure about all those other "kids" ,eh?...from Terry

Aw shucks Saija.. I will send you my whole picture site over.. Maybe there was a few more grey heads than what I noticed..

Uff! My legs hurt from climbing all those stairs.

eija said...

Saija I'll push you if you push me?
Sometimes life sure is a pain! Hope you'll catch your breath soon again.

Saija said...

dawn ... yes, there is enough for one day - rather than picking up tomorrow's problems! ... and great to see you blogging again! you've been a busy girl ...

terry ... and who says that being grey is a bad thing? i think it is a lovely colour ... :o) ... in my family, we don't grey until late 70's ... when my dad died at 72, he only had a few grey hairs here and there ... so it's just a gene thing, isn't it! blessings on your day!

jeanette ... i hear ya! ... gayla blogged about everything for a season last week - and that seasons do have an end ... so i'm looking forward to a season of rest ... with anxieties kept at bay ... hope hope hope! and soon you will have a season of travel ... that will be so cool! (hugs)

eija ... that's a deal!!! the best way to appreciate the sweetness of life, is to take a bite out of a sour part of it!

Terry said...

Dear Saija... On my way to the sugar mines!! That is what looking after my Katy is!!
All sweetness!!

Please take care..

How many days till your anniversary??...Catch you tomorrow my friend...Love Terry

Fred said...

Saija said...
