Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

A Few Used a Few New And a Prayer~

All that I have/had in "draft"...

Our Brittany who gave birth to 3 rd child Maci Marette on November 19th, has been in the hospital for 13 days today.
  She had an infection following childbirth, and then she developed Pneumonia.  
She then went into a secondary lung infection called Empyema.
 They transported her last Sunday from BHNE, a hospital near our homes to BHE, in Louisville, and did emergency surgery, draining 1 liter of infection from her right chest cavity.  
Her right lung had collapsed and they re inflated it.  
This whole week she has not gotten any better, still running high fever and white blood count has sky rocketed.  
Brittany still has the Pneumonia and they think she may have some kind of infection somewhere else in her body now.  
The physicians are calling in an Infectious Disease Specialist this morning.  
 Brittany is missing out on so much bonding time with Maci and it is breaking her heart.
 Please, pray for Brittany, Maci and family. 
All that we want for Christmas is a healthy family~
