Christmas at the Old Shoe House
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children, and loved them all too.
She said, "Thank you Lord Jesus, for sending them bread."
Then kissed them all gladly and sent them to bed.
And now it is Christmas inside the Old Shoe,
with so many children and so much to do.
Yet all of them know, "midst the presents and spice,
The meaning of Christmas is Jesus, the Christ.
Hope you all like this.  My son and his wife made this for me on a wall hanging just a couple of years before he was diagnosed with brain cancer. He even drew a "old shoe" on it!! He was not an artist! haha  It always hangs in a special place in our home for the holidays! I sure have felt like the "old woman in a shoe" in my day!!! Still do at times! I am still doing ok on the lower pred. Doc called back and all the blood work was good. Are there symptoms to watch for on the Imuran as far as toxic goes??? Update on dau,, she is now 70% effaced, dilated mayby 2. Doc says if she can hold on 2 more weeks we'll be ok and baby girl won't be considered a preemie. Her contractions run anywhere fron 3 to 15 mins, depends on how long since her meds.  I wish I just had enough energy and stamina to help her more, she is really wanting her house (nest) cleaned really good and stuff. I just get so tired so fast that she won't let me do much.   Sorry this is so long,  have a great day everyone.   Have a wonderful holiday.
