Making plans

Sometimes I’m so scared for what the future holds.  Then I stop and think about how far I’ve come, and I tell myself to keep going.  I’m doing well, and I need to appreciate every moment of good health.  I have to keep counting my blessings, and stay positive.

I’m only a little over a month from our one year wedding anniversary.  I’m determined to make it to that day in good health.  I want to celebrate that day with Dave and our family!  

The Wayne County Fair starts on September 7.  Kylia and Kari love the fair.  I took them to the fair 3 years ago.  Two days later,  I found Dave on Facebook, and a week after that we finally saw each other in person.  We were both thrilled to be back together after 25 years apart.  We got married two years later on September 8.  It was the happiest day of our lives.   

I have hopes that I will make it to Kelly’s birthday in November, and also, to Thanksgiving, Christmas and Kylia’s birthday.  I will give it all I have to get to those dates.  

I appreciate everyone’s good thoughts and prayers.  You are all helping me to keep going.  Thank you!


  1. You are such an inspiration to me & very glad you are looking forward to these great events. I will keep praying for strength for you & your family.

  2. Ruth,
    I just watched a show on TV about GPS systems - Just keep calm, recalculate, and keep moving forward and you will get there.
    I love you.

    1. Thanks, Barb! That's great advice! I love you, too!


  3. So many prayers coming your way that there's a protective glow around you. Keep picturing it!

  4. You are in my heart and prayers. I see you continuing to move forward with courage, love and grace.

    Love, Carol
