I am so thankful for having such good nephews!  Bobby has helped me so much, when I need it...he even knew where the water turn off for the house was, when I didn't know.  David and Sherrie came over Saturday morning and worked all day weedeating, weeding the flower beds and cutting brush.  I mowed.  The yard looks great!  Wish that it would stay this way or that I could learn to use the weedeater!  I appreciate all their help so much.  This is what David and Sherrie do for a living and they sure know how to get the job done! 

I feel bad having to depend on others to help me so much, but I sure do appreciate it.  Pete has been gone six months....just doesn't seem possible.  Sometimes, it seems like it was just yesterday.  I have learned to do a lot and I am still learning. 

Kimberly still gives me a hard time about not moving to Little Rock.  I love it here....this is my home!  I love having the mowing and things to keep me busy.....I love having my craft room where I can go and lose my worries!  I love watching the birds, squirrels, rabbits and other animals that come to visit.  I love having my dogs here!  I cannot imagine being in an apartment....I guess I have adapted to the country life too well.  It is quiet and peaceful here,  I have neighbors and am close to town.  I feel close to Mom, Dad, Pete and Jennifer here.  As long as my health stays good and I can get around, and this is God's plan for me, I plan on staying here!  Yes, I have had some challenges....but that would be anywhere I lived.  It is good for me to have things to do to occupy my mind and body!  I am so grateful for all that I have and appreciate it so much.  Had it not been for all the wonderful people that helped us so much after the fire, I know that I wouldn't have been able to stay here.  God has the plan for us all and He is always in control.  I have my faith and trust in Him and I know that He is good and He is good All the time....and He is good here at the Eagle's Nest!  I am so thankful for Him!!

It sounds like you have some good people surrounding you. I'm sorry to read about the fight with cancer you've endured. My father died from cancer last year, and I miss him a lot. I wish you the best of luck. You sound like a very strong person, with a lot going for you.
