Family Update

Well It has been 7months since I last wrote on here and I am so sorry, so I am gonna try to write more and keep everyone posted to how my life is going. So far God has bless me so much since we moved to Milan Ohio. We are now going to church in Norwalk and have a very loving family there. Everyone is so loving there. We miss North Ridgeville church of christ family but I do not miss living in Lorain where it was scary for me to let Cody play in the back yard. We found a house with alot of land in the country and Cody is doing so well since he started school in Dec and now is about to grad from k on June 4th of 2009. John is still working for Alltel in Elyria Ohio and has been working for Alltel now for three yrs. I was working for labcorp for 8months and was blessed to be able to be a stay a home mom since Cody needed me most. He was falling behind in school and so when we moved to Milan he started doing so much better. He has ADHD and that is hard to deal with but since we started going to the doctor he started on meds and boy does it help out alot. Cody started sports and loves it. We just got a new puppy today and her name is chloe and she is a cutie pie. Well I hope to keep in touch with everyone and I will have a better topic next time to talk about just wanted everyone to know what is going on with me now days. I forgot we are still trying to have a baby but now we are getting help from the doctors who have put me on meds to see what happens if that does not work well we are just gonna adopt a young child out there that needs a good christan home. God bless everyone and hope to hear back from you all. God Bless.

    It was good to see you on Sunday! Sorry we didn't get to talk hardly AT ALL. Next time. :-)

    It's great that Cody seems to be doing well. Country life is good for kids. And I agree with you, Lorain can be a little scary!

Family update

Well, Our son finaly started school this year and some what likes it. We had a little trouble at first with his teacher and now since we talk with her he is doing much better in school. We went to the five yr old check up and the doc wanted to put him on meds for his ADHD and now wow can we see a difference. I really was againest meds for him but I know that with out it Cody can not focus on his school work and be still. He has been taking the meds now for a month and he is doing so so well in school. We are proud of him. God has bless me with a loving husband who works hard at what he does and I am thankfull for everything he does for our family. I have had my job now for three months and things are going well and I love the people I work with just wish I could get off work on time. God has bless us with two jobs so we can better ourselves and hope to buy our own home soon and me be able to be back a doing what I do best being a stay at home mom. I am so glad we have found a good church family at Norwalk. They are very kind and loving as always. John and I are very blessed to have Cody apart of our lives and we would like to have more children but at this time we are unable to have any children and we have let God know we love him even if we do not have anymore of our own. We are very lucky to have Cody because some couples out there can not even have any at all. Children are a blessing to be able to have and to raise in a christian home. I feel that God always knows what is best and If I am able I know he will one day bless us with more children. God has always help John and mes out so much through the good times and bad. I am so glad God is apart of our lives and our sons to. Plesse continue to pray for our family as we have had some hard times with Johns job and he does not even know if he will have a job come Dec so We have stop worrying and have given it to God so what ever happens happens for the best. I am in a ladies bible class and we have been talking about being Mary in a Martha world and it is great. I love the topics we have had so far so if you are in the area come by and vist us sometime. Worry is what we are talking about this wed night. I am getting used to the north weather now and I love fall weather wish it could stay like this because I am not looking forward to snow coming this winter. Hope everyone is doing well. I have had a chance to go to some fall gospel meeting and all of them have been great. It was good to see my old friends at North Ridgeville Church and I hope they stay in touch with us. Well I have learned alot and I am getting better at becoming a daily bible reader I even get a chance to read at work when I am not busey they let me read it is great. Well just wanted to let everyone know how the Millers have been and I am looking forward to our vaction trip which starts on thus we will be going down to see our family and friends in south Ohio. Keep in touch and I hope to hear back from some of you.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and for your encouraging words. I didn't want to think any parent reading what I wrote, particularly those with kids IN my class, would be afraid I was really "bopping" their kids with a mallet. That was a joke.

    Cody is in the class just older than mine, but we will be glad to have him and see you and his dad.

    Thanks for visiting me. I'm so happy there's some improvement with your grandmother. It's so hard when they can't get around. My dad is doing pretty well at this time. Thank you for asking. Hope your new job is working out well. Perhaps we'll see you when our fall meeting rolls around.

Wow God sure is looking out for my family.

Well I have some good news I am going to be working soon out side of the home. Yes I finally get to work in Ohio. I just know that God would come through for me and John we just needed to have faith. I had the interview on the 25th of June and today I decided to call back and see if the job had been filled well turns out she offered it to me. Wow I was so happy I just had to call John and tell him the great news. Well I should start training for the job some time next week so guess what I have to do now? I got to find someone to watch Cody no big deal I know I will find someone to watch him untill he starts school. Please pray that things will go well for me and that I will really like working again and helping people feel better about getting their blood drawn. I will be working at a doctors office in Sheffield. I am glad I could share this happy news with everyone. Always know that God is looking out for his children and he will come through it just takes time and patience that is very hard to do but it is very true. Who knows I may be bless soon with another child. I sure hope so. Well I will keep everyone posted to when I start and if anyone knows of a good daycare in sheffield let me know ok. Thanks for reading about my good news.

It will be Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings, and Saturday morning at 10, and Sunday morning at our usual 9:30. I will be teaching the youngest group, and Katie would be teaching Cody's age. It would be great to have you.

Feeling really sad today.

Well I do not know if everyone knows but I have a good friend back home who had a niece who has been missing since June 25 of this year and she was only 12yrs old. They found her body yesterday near her uncle's house. Her uncle is now in jail for seveal bad things he has done. I just wanted to let everyone know that her family is hurting and needs lots of prayer that their heart will be healed with time. The girls name was Brooke Bennett. She left behind a farther and mother and two brothers. Her brothers are 9ys old and 9months old. Please pass this on and pray for the Bennett family. She is with God now and I am thankfull they found her but I was hoping that they would find her alive. Just keep the whole family in your prayers ok. Thanks so much. The parents are really crushed by what has happend but are releaved that their baby was found. God be with the family please. She was on the Today show and CNN I think. She was the first Amber Alart in Vermont. I can not even think of how much pain the family is in. My friend in Ga says thanks to everyone who has been praying for the whole family. Keep the prayers coming thanks.
  • funsahm
    Wow, that's terrible. I'm glad the family will finally get closure.
