Life is too short. I have watched these last few months a friend and co-worker from work be with her husband as he was diagnosed with ALS. I cannot believe the faith and happiness that they have projected throughout this trial. As his days are coming to and end, I see so many comments posted on their update page that it brings me great comfort and joy, knowing that someone has that much support behind them and the faith from everyone that writes is a true testimony to HIS powerfulness.

If you get a chance in the next few days, please say a prayer for Gary that he will find peace in HIS loving arms and to give comfort to his wife, Sally as she sees him through his final walk on earth and to his son Chad and Matt.

Yes, I will be walking to fight ALS on August 25, 2007 in Grand Rapids in his honor.

In Christian Love,

Yes! We made it through! Lindsey is doing great and recovering like a trooper. She went into surgery on 7/07/07 at 10:50 a.m. and we were leaving the surgery center at 1:00 p.m. She did very well and actually was eating french fries from Wendy's an hour later!

Seems summer is going too fast for our liking. Girls are doing a lot of swimming and playing with water balloons when they can. Alyssa played for the All-Star team in Hopkins on the 4th of July. For a few innings, she was the only one actually hitting the ball and getting on base.

Personally, I can't wait til school starts. Girls are starting to get on each others nerves to the point that either Bri or I will take them separately to the grocery store or movie store or where ever we need to go just to give them some "alone" time.

Had a golf outing this last Saturday that my sister, brother-in-law, Bri & I played in. We didn't do half bad for some of us not golfing in a couple of years. Had a lot of fun, something I can see me and my husband doing when the girls get older.

Take care all and have a great rest of summer!
