Yes -- she is still alive! There were several times this fall when we didn't think she would live beyond that day! I certainly did not anticipate her being here for Christmas, but she was! (Much to her disappointment, as she wanted to spend Christmas Day with Jesus!)
She keeps saying she has been "robbed," as there were times when she felt she was so close to seeing her Savior face to face . . . and then she woke up in the same old room and in the same old body.
She has good days -- when she is able to be up in her wheelchair and move about the house and rearrange the contents of the refrigerator -- and she has bad days when the chest pain and pressure along with the shortness of breath keep her confined to her hospital bed. She continues to be joyful, non-complaining, and focused on others rather than her self whether she feels "good" or rotten!
Here are two of the afghans she has made for my children.
This one is Hannah's:
And this one is Bethany's:
She has made me several afghans through the years. Here is my Favorite one -- isn't it Beautiful??
"She seeketh wool and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. . . Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates."
~ Proverbs 31:13, 31
