Thank you all for continued prayers for David. We appreciate them very much.

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I like my ________________ with _________________.
  1. When I was _________, I had to have _____________.
  1. I spend the most time thinking about ____________.
  1. __________________________ is a risk worth taking.


Here are my responses:

I like my hamburgers with lettuce and tomato and mayonnaise AND chili, mustard and onions.

When I was near death in 2010, I had to have ice packed all around me just so that I could breathe.

I spend the most time thinking about waking up and finding David in a condition in which I do not ever want to find him AND wondering who my father is. Both have pretty much taken over my mind. The first terrifies the heck out of me and there’s nothing I can do to avoid it happening. It happens to all of us eventually.  The other is driving me mad. I sit here looking at my DNA family tree, knowing the answer is in there somewhere, but I’m just not seeing it. Once I figure it out, I’ll be face-palming, wondering why I didn’t see it sooner, with it right there, staring me in the face.

Love is a risk worth taking.


Who couldn’t love this baby?  🙂

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

  1. Being near death and not knowing what to expect regarding David’s condition, that’s a lot to deal with.
    I am sure you will find out who your father is one day.
    I can only repeat myself and say how brave you are facing all these challenges every day!
    Have a blessed week!

    • Thanks, Viola. These are scary times, but we are doing our best to make the most of it. Hopefully he will have a new insulin pump soon. I don’t know what the co-pay will be and, unfortunately, money will be the deciding factor. Hopefully the company will be able to work with us. Our point of contact there is working on this.

      Thank you for the vote of confidence. I know I’m driving everyone nuts with my obsession over this.

      Thank you for such kind words. I think that you are very brave, too. Have a blessed week. {{{Hugs}}}

    We have a friend in Hospice and that thought has been with me lately. We’ll all have to deal with this at some point or another. Not a good thought at all.

    Love is indeed worth the risk.

    Prayers for you and David continue.

    Aw on that adorable kitty.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, my friend. ♥

    • I am so sorry about your friend in Hospice. {{{Hugs}}} You’re all in my prayers.

      Thanks for the prayers for our family. We appreciate them very much.

      I thought that little white kitty was such a sweet little one. Our Boba loves to lay around like this, looking at me upside down from my recliner. 🙂

      I hope that you have a purrfect weekend and will have a most blessed week. ♥

    Very cute kitten. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I always enjoy your answers. I am sorry you have to worry about David so much though and still haven’t solved the dna mystery, but I know you will figure that out. Have a nice weekend! XO

    • Thanks, Ellen. Little white kitties are rare, at least for me. We’ve had one over all these years. He was such a little fireball.

      I always enjoy answering the fill-ins. They are the bright spot in the middle of all these stressors. Thanks for the prayers for David.

      Thanks also for the vote of confidence. Some days I feel so close to figuring it out and others, a hundred miles away from the answer. I guess I’ll get it when I get it.

      I hope that you had a great weekend and have a blessed week. {{{Hugs}}}

    Such honest answers, Suzanne. 2010 must have been incredibly scary, I’m glad you’re okay. I’m sorry about David. That can’t be easy at all. And with your father, the answers will be there – I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you discovering something that gets you nearer to finding who he is soon!
    Have a restful weekend lovely.

    • Thank you. Actually, at that point in 2010, I was praying for Heavenly Father to take me on. I had such peace. I could just close my eyes and be gone. But, He wasn’t ready for me yet. So, I’m still here to drive everyone mad. 🙂

      No, it isn’t easy at all wondering every time I wake up what I’m going to find in regards to David. So far, so good, though, and I hope he is with me for a very long time. I can’t even remember my life without him at this point. It is like we’ve always been together. I can’t – and don’t want to – imagine us not being.

      Thanks for keeping your fingers crossed for me! Fingers, toes, eyeballs, everything. 🙂

      Have a blessed week!

    Continued prayers for your entire family! And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I really appreciate you taking the time to participate, especially given all that you’re going through right now. It sounds like 2010 was such a terrifying year for you, and I am so glad you and David are both here with us today. Prayers to you!

    • Thank you. 🙂 It has definitely been an adventure, this life of ours.

      I always enjoy the fill-ins very much. It gives me a chance to pause and actually think about the answers. Some are easier than others. 🙂
      Have a blessed weekend!
