Life is Precious

The first night I was home from the hospital as a baby, my mom woke to make me a bottle.  When she came to check on me, my sister, Lynn had already made my bottle and was feeding me - she was 11.  I have 3 older sisters, all of whom have made an impact in my life, however, Lynn has always mothered me.  

Lynn had been sick for the past few weeks.  She had been bitten by a deer tick and contracted Lymes disease.  They treat this with antibiotics, however, she wasn't getting better.  It happens, that the tick that bit her was infected with Babesia that infects the blood.  The disease is called Babesiosis.  She was in the hospital for over a week, much of that time in ICU.  It was really scary  I wanted to be full of faith - but, people can die from this.  It was a tough week.  I'm happy to say, she is doing so much better!

Last Saturday was the 20th Annual Ringle Harvest Day - it was a huge success!

I am excited to share that my daughter's and I will be going on a trip to Scotland and Ireland.  I won't be blogging for a bit, but I can't wait to share all of our adventures with you.

My title is "Life is Precious" - it truly is!  Enjoy each day, no matter what it brings.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
