Our Rainy Trip to Central Florida :)

There were police cars with their lights flashing on each side of the road to slow people down...Ya think? :)
This guy on a Motorcycle during this kind of weather? I couldn't believe it!! The smart ones were under the overpasses.:)
This truck must have slid on the water on the road because he hit the guard rail,messing it up and stopped here.
You could barely see the car in front of you and the ones in front of them were even harder to see. I asked Jim (with great emphasis).LOL ... to slow down and pointed out to him that you could only see the cars up ahead when they hit their brakes to slow down.
This was after the hard rain we had just come through. Here we go again.LOL

Just popping in to let you know that Jim's Mom passed away this last Saturday evening. Jim,Christy and I got up early Sunday morning and headed to Central Florida to be there with Jim's Dad and sister during this difficult time. His Mom had dementia/Alzheimer and was in the last stages of it for a while now. She finally went to be with Jesus and the funeral was Wednesday. Jim thought he needed to be back home to go to work today..but when we got home and he called his District Manager.She told him to take time off and don't come back in until Monday.Isn't that SWEET of her?:) He can really use it too. We are all DRAINED at the moment. Mentally and physically. It is really hard to see your loved ones hurting.:( One blessing though...Mom knows who we all are now!!! Praise the Lord!!:) Thanks for stopping in and I pray you will have a wonderful weekend. Be sure to hug your loved ones and tell them that you love them.:) Hugs, Valinda

Sisters - I'm Gonna Make It Through

Eye trouble again.:(

Good morning my friends.:) I just wanted to let you know that I am having some eye troubles again. The last few years I have had something going on with them. My eyes would get tired and I started seeing double until I rested them.One time I was looking at my monitor and it was like a crystal lake swirling on the screen.Weird and kinda scary until I read about eye migraines. Recently I started having trouble in my left eye. It is like a haze or film over it when I look at stuff. It seems to be getting worse so I am going to have to go to the eye doctor to see what is going on with that.:( I am having to spend less time looking at the monitor etc and watching TV hasn't been as enjoyable as it use to be. This is one of the reasons my posts have been short my visits to my friends blogs have slowed down too.I have a hard time with the glare on my monitor while reading your posts. I want to thank my dear friend Kyra for sending two awards to me this past week!!:) How SWEET of you! If possible I will try to follow the rules and pass them on to some much deserving blog friends.:) I haven't quit..just slowing way down for a while until I get my eye problem taken care of.:) We are trusting our Lord to intervene in this situation. He has healed me soo many times before..several times..instantly... and as that song says..He'll Do It Again.:) Your prayers will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.:) Hugs, Valinda
