Everything is A-OK!!

Jenny was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon! They said she did not suffer a stroke and all her blood vessels are looking fine. Owen is doing great too! She was extremely tired from being poked, pricked, prodded, woken up all night, etc. It just really makes you realize how blessed you are when you get news like that! Life is way too short and people need to realize how blessed they really are. Life is a miracle and should be treated as such. I have been so stressed at work, running around doing so many things, torn in so many directions and this episode with Jenny just made me realize that life is to valuable to keep up this pace! I am going to talk to my boss and see if they cannot get an assistant for me. Working for 13-16 people and doing so many different things is just too much for 1 person and it should never have been determined that 1 person will do all this.

Sorry to be on such a soap box but I am feeling alot different about life and some of the choices I need to make right now. Thanks everyone for being there and listening!! Hope your day is an awesome one!!

Wonderful news!!

It's interesting how times like these make us realize what's really important. I've had my own AHA moments in such times.

Enjoy looking at life with your new eyes.... and may peace be resident as you make some new choices!

Sherri, I'm so glad that Jenny and the baby are OK. I'm sure you must have been worried silly. And I agree that you need to talk to your boss about getting help. That's just too much for one person to do. And I know you're not the type that would do a so-so job just to get something finished.

I'm so glad your daughter and the baby are OK. I was really worried about her after you mentioned a few days ago. And it sounds like you really do need another body sharing some of that work. Good for you for talking to them!

Oh my goodness - the things that has happened in just a couple of days - I did not know! I´m so sorry you all had to go through this, but glad that she´s OK.

Take care, all of you!

Happy to hear that all is well with Jenny! We do need to take a step back every so often and look at what really matters in life. Hope it goes well at work for you.

I'm so glad Jenny is okay and that you have decided to slow down some. Take care.

I am SO glad that everything is alright, Sherri. What a relief to know that all is well! I have been praying for you all. Good for you for getting a personal assistant. If you don't ask, it won't happen, right? Life is too short to work yourself so hard, Sweets. Big hugs! Lori

Oh my, I've been away from the blogs for a few days but my heart just about stopped when I saw the one about Jenny. Thank God that everything is ok with her and Owen!

I hope you can get yourself some help at work Sherri. It sounds like you really need it.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
