I struggle with how much personal stuff to share here. If non-bargain information bothers you, stop reading now.
Personally, I like to hear a little bit about the people behind the scenes. I like to affirm that they are real, breathing people. (I promise I am!) I like to discover tidbits about their lives and feel connected, even in small ways. But, then reality hits that I may be a freak and wonder why I’m thinking about posting something personal. I realize this website isn’t about me and you’re here for bargains. I don’t say that in a self-pity sort of way — love having you here for that!! I would have started a personal bio/diary blog if I thought I was that exciting. Bargains are much more enjoyable than reading about what I do each day, believe me!
But, here’s a big piece of my life right now and my heart wants to share it. I don’t see it affecting the bargains we bring you very much. I have a great team of helpers and I will still be out there in the real world — stumbling on and looking for bargains.
All that said . . . We got bad news about my mom’s bile duct cancer yesterday. I wanted to update everyone who has been thinking about or praying for her. Thank you — it’s appreciated very much!
To be lazy, I’m just copying the post I did on my personal Facebook page last night.
Stunned . . . went with my mom to Tuscon, to get her cancer zapped (ablation), but the mass has quadrupled in size since the last scan. They couldn’t do it and guess that she has 2 – 4 months to live. She’s feeling great — so unreal, but I’m thankful she is! “We Trust in the Name of the Lord our God.” We had this song at our wedding and at our son’s funeral … I had to go listen to it again and remind myself that He’s there for the ups & the downs. I still trust, but am heartbroken. This is a link to the song, though it’s just the lyrics while Steve Green sings. http://www.youtube.com/
