What a whirlwind the past few weeks have been. Mom in ICU... then on a floor... then sent home & the very next day back in the ER with congestive heart failure, complete with a ventilator and a dismal prognonsis... but she is a fighter.  Back to ICU again... and yesterday a new room on a new floor of the hospital. We are waiting on test results. We moved our camper from Palm Desert to a friends house in Joshua Tree.
My mom asked me to tKe the day off and not vo tothe hospital.
I have gone every day since the 2nd.
It felt weird. But ok.
We went to church then swung by my moms to get a few more things in working order. Justyn installed her cable box in her bedroom so she will have it in her bedroom once again once she finally gets back home.
I am finding I am just so tired. Life is a little bit in a holding pattern again til she gets home.
We brought her dogs here with us yesterday. Normally they are little  couch potatoes but currently they are rediscovering their inner ranch dog. we simply do not have the ability to let them watch animal planet.
Frank & the kids went with friends on Saturday serving in the local community at a park serving the homelessan afternoon meal. Justyn evenbrought his guitar. I am not sure what this week holds.
Oh & starting a jamberry nails business in the middle of all this makes for an interesting dynamic. Frank has offered to wear a set of Jamberry nails once weget 250 likes on the narrowroadschoolersjamz facebook page. Nothing like a little support from my retired USMC hubby toofferto wear nail wraps :) so help us out & see just a few of the cool combos that jamberry offers

Right now I don't have the right words.

Last week my mom got a helicopter ride from the hi-desert to the low desert.
She has been in ICU cardiac for 5 days.
Tomorrow she will have surgery to clear the possible blood clot & plaque in her veins.
We arrived in CA very early Friday morning. ..
Thankful to be only 7 hours away.

Tomorrow surgery is scheduled for 12:30 pst. Please keep her in prayer.

Crazy Ideas

So we set out with no support.  & it has been hard.

But recently. the middle of traveling a few more hundred miles

I joined a nifty little nail wrap company called Jamberry nails. It is SO cool. These are super simple & very trendy nail wraps and the perfect alternative to nail polish. And we got to thinking ...what if we could support our own ministry with supplemental income from a fantastic business.
So we are going to attempt it... and we are praying God blesses this endeavor. MaryRachael is very excited about modeling this very adorable & unique nail wraps. This in not limited to in home parties. You can have an online party & still get all the great perks of being a hostess!

So if you have ever wanted to support our ministry but couldn't donate here it is!

 We arrived back in CA and in the midst of mom going back in the hospital we truly hope to launch this very real business endeavor. 
We even have a facebook page! Hopefully I can create an octive link to it here.
