    Ok I want to tell you all why my Ulcer has really been acting up.

    My Granddaughter who is going to be 15 years old very shortly, has lived with me most of her entire life. She has moved completely in with her mother today.

    We have been moving stuff for the last couple of weeks (Man she had a lot!). I even have been letting her stay for long periods so she would get use to things.

    Today I handed my granddaughter back over to her mother...My daughter. Nothing has been hurting me more. Whew! My stomach is really burning again and really swollen.

    But It was a joyous occasion, because nothing is better than seeing Mother and daughter together. I hope you can see what I am saying.

    But my heart is sick...because I am the one who bought her everything she has, and I stayed up nights with her, all the things mommy's do.

    When I took the last little thing over a minute ago, granddaughter did not even come out and tell me good bye or that she loved me. No one even said thank you for loving my daughter and me enough to help. Or I love you. Or even I hate you.

    It was if I was a bad guy of some sort. And I did everything to please them on this move. I do not think they even cared about how i was going to feel.

    Now you know why my stomach is a mess. So now that is all I wanted to say. its off my mind.

    Sister, oh, how I can't feel what you feel right now--but sweet Jesus can! Imagine that?? Infinite feeling with the finite! OOOHH, but let Him feel your mind---and know that no matter what--that grandchild of yours will always be a blessing--they'll be back!

    Wish I could say more and feel more--but I can't! But I will lift you up so that infinite Jesus can!! God bless your heart!

    Your brother,
    David

    I've noticed that there are few posters in the General Discussion section under heading of (tithing) Would somebody go there where Dan Todd won't think he's the only one in his church that tithes! You know how preachers are!!

    Your Southern Baptist preachin', still tithin' buddy,

    I'll see what you think of this situation.

    The bank I work for reserved a big tent (and paid for it) to be used at the Relay For Life tonight. We have used this company many times with no problems. Today because the Wal-Mart Shareholders are having their annual meeting and it started raining, the tent company called to say Wal-Mart was getting all of their tents and we would have to find another one someplace else. We had already paid them and they still gave Wal-Mart priority even though they didn't request the tents until today. Needless to say the company we would have rented the tent from will no longer have our business.

    Sorry to hear about your hurting, Sherrie. Sometimes the emotional pain can hurt more than physical pain (and even cause physical pain like in your case). I wish I knew something to say that would make you feel better, but all I can say is I will be praying about your situation and for you to have peace inside about it.

    I'm surprised the Wal-Mart execs even thought about puttin' somethin' over the heads of their shareholders to keep them dry!!!---I do hold shares in Wal-Mart(howbeit only a handful--less than 10, actually--well, only 6!) but hey! If I WERE goin' up to Fayetteville(or wherever the holders are told to show up!)--for you, RodH----if it starts rainin' I would stand out in the middle of the rain in protest--I'd be willin' to do that for you, RodH! Buddy! Pal!

    But even as a shareholder--they still charge me full price at the register--it ain't like Blackbird gets a discount or nothin'! it wouldn't surprise me if the execs actually charge the holders to stand up under the tent!!

    Your buddy,
    Blackbird

    You would think they would be kissing the Banks butter!

    Can the Bank just for principle (HA! I made a Joke...an Inside Bank Joke....principal....get it) sake...take the tent people to court?

    I certainly would make it mentionable somehow..as far as legal would allow.

    Thankful, my husband is the one who catalogues my books for me. [​IMG] I would never think to.

    Jim would not want to see my desk...or my study for that matter...I can hardly ever write at my desk, Rob says however do you know where to find anything [​IMG]

    Sherrie, I am so sorry about your situation. The past few weeks can't have been easy for you. No wonder your ulcer is acting up. I will be praying for you [​IMG]

    ((((((((((((((Sherrie))))))))))))))) have a cyber hug [​IMG]

    See if one of the churches will let you use their activity buildings. Explain why.

    When you imagine our Coffee Shop...how do you think it looks on the inside?

    Now I do not think it looks like this to me:

    Not our coffee shop


    What do you all think it looks like?

    Sherrie

    Edited to go with the rules. I see it was slightly over. ;)

    Nice picture Sherrie! But isn't it slightly over the BB logo in size? Oh, well, this is the Coffee Shop - so, we'll let it slide this time... ;) [​IMG]

    Sherrie, you are welcome [​IMG]

    The pic is nice but it is not "us", not homely enough. I do have a pic of the outside tho, only the sign people got it wrong and put up :

    The Coffee House instead of the Coffee Shop. I would post it, but I am in it [​IMG]

    :eek:

    Sister--Now, now! You must be truthful and tell Brother Barnabas why he must not eat the cake!! For all he knows--it came from Aunt Bee Taylor's kitchen!!! And you know how she prided herself in that kitchen???!!!!!!!!!! Although I think if Aunt Bee did at least taste the cake she would "blush" with envy of the unseen chef and would have to be truthful and say, ". . .!"

    Your buddy,
    Blackbird

    That's so sad, Sherrie... I hope your ulcer gets to feeling better real soon!

    And on a side note, thank God for migraines!!! :D

    See.. I had a dentist appointment today.. but I had a migraine last night, and when I got up to go to the dentist, I still felt icky from the migraine.. so I rescheduled my appointment for Monday.

    It's like gettin' a stay of execution! :D

    And it's raining again.. I'd really like to get this new rosebush in the ground, but ohhh no!! :rolleyes:
