The weekend that was

  Dewan being his usual cute self
The photos I am posting today was taken a year ago...but I only got my hands on them this past week. 
This past weekend was very quiet in our household.  My DH was very sick and you know how men are they don't listen when you tell them to go to the doctor. 

Aren't they too gorgeous...
I spent Saturday making Christmas cards.  I have been one of the guilty ones that never sent out cards...this year I decided to pick up the old tradition again.  I love receiving I had better start sending some.  I made some gorgeous cards and it is going to be hard to part with some of them.

Over the past year or so I have built up some real life relationships with some of my blog buds...please don't let my cards land in the dirtbin:)

 I took DH to see the doc yesterday.  He is on the right medication I hope that he will be well soon.
At the moment we have a hectic time at work.  For our people on the program at the mission, it is the dangerous time of the year.  They miss people that they have lost, don't have their family anymore and it is the time of year they resort to their old coping the alcoholic and the drug addicts have to be given a lot of extra love and care.   

This past weekend two of our people fell back into heroin.  The amazing thing is that they lie about their use.  They have become so clever.  They know that if they used and they test positive they can use the excuse of using codeine for some sort of pain.  The sad thing is that they need to admit their problem or else we cannot help them. 
So if you are one of those lucky ones that take a holiday to spend time with your loved ones...please take time to think of those who are not so fortunate to have family around them at this time of the year.

I will post photos of the Christmas cards I made later this week.

    need to get a move on I guess:)

  5. Ag those children are te pragtig!
    Gorgeous pics -

    Hope DH is back on his feet now?

    It must be so hard for you guys to see people at the mission falling back at this time - and frustrating when they lie and your hands are tied.
    Keep the faith. You do really what Jesus did in that you offer help - people are free to receive it or reject it.
    Its never easy to watch people you care deeply about make wrong choices.

  6. Lovely photos you are so lucky having grandchildren - I live in hope !!! Your work is amazing & it must be so difficult to I do admire you guys for doing it very scarey but really so needed. Have an awesome Christmas & be very blessed.

  7. beautiful photos, wow!

    I send out Christmas cards everyear, to my family. Love doing it.

    I can only imagine how life must be at the Mission right now. You and K are definately the right people to be heading it up. Have faith and you will be fine - but you know that already.
