Tonight was another Bridges event, this time in Egg Harbor at Sawyer’s Barn. (That’s as far as I got on Tuesday night when I began to fall asleep at my computer.) Continue reading
Checking back in my blogs, it was July 17th when Mark and Merih bought a used car for Merih. However, the car needed a bunch of work on it. Mark has been spending evenings and weekends on it, and a couple of times on his day off, Merih has come over to help. It was obvious last time, though, that Merih was beginning to give up hope of ever getting to drive it this summer. Continue reading
What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word “Africa”? For me, it’s heat. I think of savannahs and jungles and deserts. But apparently, it can also get quite cold. Mothers and newborns have been dying of hypothermia in Tanzania. Karen Klemp and Jane Krogstad have started a program called Hope 2 Others to put together kits of things to help mothers and babies survive, including warm hats. Nancy Zieman, a famous quilter, is encouraging others to help by making heart-shaped hats from this pattern that you can print off your computer: http://www.nancyzieman.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Hope-2-Others-Heart-Shape-Hat-Pattern.pdf.
Today, I got to spend the day with women. Good day! And I got to be creative. Even better! Continue reading
Mark took me to work this morning at the Noble House and then he went and picked Merih up for some guy time. Mark has been working on Merih’s car for at least the last couple of weeks, and it was hoped that with Merih’s help, they might be able to finish, but this car is not so easy to fix. However, Mark thinks that they should be able to have it driveable by next Tuesday. Merih is certainly hoping so! Continue reading
When I went to work at the Visitor’s Center today, the sky was sunny and blue. There was not a hint of the predicted thunderstorms. Continue reading
Today is Kader’s twenty-first birthday. I managed to get tickets to a play so that we could take her tonight. First, at Merih’s invitation, we took her to dinner in the bar at Sister Bay Bowl. That’s where he works and he wanted to serve us. We sat facing the bowling alley and enjoyed watching people of all ages play.
First, some news about my pastor, Nancy. I believe I had last told you that she was not going to have a mastectomy. That was the news she told us all when she sent a phone call out to the church. Ten minutes later, the oncologist called her and told her that not only was that still a possibility, but the doctor wanted her to have a port put in to start a sixteen-week course of chemo. My pastor was too devastated to call back. Continue reading
We have had more fun with our Bridges kids! I have pictures and stories to share… Continue reading
This morning, Mark took me and my bicycle and art portfolio over to where Merih and Kader live. He left me with Kader for the day and took Merih with him. Merih wanted to buy a car, so Mark took him down to the Green Bay area to look for one. Continue reading
