Wren's Thoughts

I got a great blessing yesterday, my husband's catheterization showed that his arteries were PERFECT, the ones repaired in the 5 way bypass 5 years ago even look like they were done yesterday. He'd been having some problems so when he called me to pick him up at work on Wednesday, I took him straight to the cardiologist and they admitted him to the hospital for observation so they could do the 'cath' on Friday. I thank God for this blessing and all of my family and friends that said prayers for us.

I won the 2nd gift bag from The Amish Country Holiday Book Tour, which includes a t-shirt and bag with the tour symbol on it and the book by Shelley Shephard Gray, Winter's Awakening. Thank you!

Got The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt via UPS today, thank you Pudgy Penquin Perusals.

YEA! I won The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt at Pudgy Penguin Perusals. Thank you for hosting the giveaway.

Got The Wounded Heart by Adina Senft in the mail the other day, that's the good news, bad news, I can't remember where I won it from so I can notify them that it was received. I looked back on the two contest pages that I entered for it, the first one had different winners and the second one I could find a posting for the winners. I usually keep the emails I get notifying me that I'm a winner, don't have one of those either. So, whoever I won this from, it is received and I'd like to thank you again for hosting the giveaway. I am really anxious to finish the three books I'm reading so I can start that one. Three books at a time are two too many for me, lol.

I just won an autographed copy of Unlawfully Wedded Bride by Noelle Marchand at nancykimball.blogspot.com. Thank you for hosting the giveaway Nancy.

Got "A Wedding Blunder in the Black Hills" by Kim O'Brien from UPS today, my October winnings are starting to come in. I really needed it today, I hate dealing with companies that are hindered by the government red tape! ! ! !

I just won a copy of "Beside Still Waters" & "Along Wooded Paths" from ! Thank you for hosting this giveaway and all the others that you do.

I am in SHOCK, my mouth is hanging open, my heart is finally beating again, lol !!!! PHEW!!!! I cannot thank you enough. This was my response when I was notified that I won a Latest Generation KINDLE with Wi-Fi and Pearl Screen loaded with 14 books by the Seekers. Thank you so much Pam Hillman for hosting this giveaway at http://www.calicotrails.blogspot.com/

  P.S. Pam offered me the Knidle with a keyboard or I could wait until the TOUCH is available on Nov. 21st, so I chose to wait for the TOUCH to come out. Pam you are the BEST! Thank you for letting me make the choice.

I just won Hidden in the Everglades by Margaret Daley from The Sword and The Spirit. Thank you for hosting this contest.

Just got a call that Roger won an iPod at the health fair we went to on Saturday! I really think I should get to keep it since I'm the one that made him fill out the entry form.

Got my book from Bethany House Publishers today, I get to read The Mercy by Beverly Lewis and submit a review.

WINNER again! This time it's Don't Mess with Texas by Christie Craig from Frugal Plus. Thank you for hosting this giveaway! I really want to thank everyone that hosts the giveaways, it really makes my day when I can win a book. Thank you Frugal Plus!

   I guess I haven't posted much on this page except my 'winnings', lol. I think I'm trying too many new things all at the same time and getting lost, haha. Between the trying to learn and dealing with my husband's health issues it's been a stressful year.
   Thanks to a shot in the rear and two more medicines, Roger is feeling much better the last three days, he can even walk standing almost up straight! This year he's been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and this week Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. It seems like we've been going to doctors, labs, and/or some type of xray (MRI included) at least once a week. And my strong husband has kept working through it all, as a diesel mechanic no less! If if was me, I would probably be in bed! He knows no pain, that is until this last year and understandably now he complains constantly. So Thursday was a blessing, as these last three days have been. He is looking at three spinal epidurals though, two weeks apart. Well that's enough about family health problems for now.

Everyone have a great day,

Winner, two days in a row! I was just notified that I won Pleating for Mercy by Melissa Bourbon from Reviews by Molly. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!
