I have to admit I am intrigued by the prayer shawl. I bought a clearance Prayer Shawl book, because the patterns looked soo easy. I did not expect the personal stories would be so interesting. The story on page 59 caught my interest. A wounded soldier at Walter Reed was asked what he had wrapped around him. He said he didn't know, someone just gave it to him. He likes it because it keeps him warm. He then added a confession to the monk, he hears praying voices when he wears it.

Even if I only make 1 a year, I think it will be worth it.

I was just given a prayer shawl made by my SIL's mom and her church ladies. I always feel warm (like a hug) and surrounded by love and prayers when I wear it. What's the name of the book you bought?

Love,

Loey

It's totally true!!

Now I thought I was having a bad day until I got a voicemail from my girlfriend asking how to get raw eggs out of the carpet... I asked what happened. She went to change her clothes and brush her teeth to take her 3 and 4 year olds to gymnastics. In that 5 minutes, they got a dozen eggs out of the kitchen fridge AND a dozen out of the garage fridge and had an egg fight.. IN HER LIVING ROOM!!! I'm sooooo glad I'm not her right now! Poor thing!! :huh::lol: :lol: :lol:

Butch jumped to the top of the door and played 'balance beam'....

Since I've learned to bury the plastic baggies at the bottom of the trash I've had no more awakenings to food juice spread all over my bed, along with bits of chewed plastic.

Ah, but these are at least scrubable. Most of it came off with oven cleaner. Given how much I wipe off on a daily basis I dread to think what the real state of our old chairs was.

The sofas are shades of brown (plus yogurt). One day I walked in to find that in the 2 minutes I was in the kitchen my daughter had covered her arms, legs and the sofa in yogurt.

You gotta love em :)

Thanks, I also found a book called Prayer Shawl Ponderings. It doesn't have patterns (I don't knit or crochet) but it has a place for you to write your own ponderings after each chapter. Will let you know how it is when it arrives.

I was just going to call out Superman & I. We could NOT ever have white furniture. We're big at eating in the family room when Tony's not home or we don't have company (and sometimes we entertain in the family room) and I'm a pretty big slob for a small person :lol:

Loey,

This book included personal stories about working for the mission, giving shawls in person, and the personal pattern contribution. I'm thinking a poncho pattern would be a nice idea too.

Loey,

This book included personal stories about working for the mission, giving shawls in person, and the personal pattern contribution. I'm thinking a poncho pattern would be a nice idea too.

Here are some links to sites with prayer shawl patterns and the firs two have prayer ponchos. I find I'll wear a T-shirt some days just so I can wrap myself i it and feel all of the love put into it. I have known my SIL and her family since I was 16(I'm 61 now) and her mother is like a mother to me. The fact that she and her church ladies (not to be confused with SNL skit) made it for me and I know that my SIL's mom is very sick herself makes it even more special. Instead of making it in purple or turquoise (my favorite colors) she made it to match my family room. I thought that was very cool. Anyway, ere are the links. Hope they're helpful. Enjoy

Healing Hugs,

Loey

    • I am not getting enough vitamins my body needs before and after being diagnosed with celiac. Can anyone recommend great vitamins to help me get back on track. Everywhere I go the vitamins itself contains gluten or was made a gluten facility. I don't eat a lot because I am still getting sick so I need to find a way to get more nutrients into me.  Thanks!
    • It sucks when you've taken precautions and they don't pan out. Take heart however, although it feels like you're back to square one but one exposure doesn't negate all the healing that you've gone through. Eat simply and safely for now and get back on track. You should feel better soon. As for eating out, it's the same as when you learned to ride a bike. You dust yourself off, learn a lesson about that venue and get back on the bike. You need to balance risk and reward. Too far either way isn't the way to go. Hope you're feeling better soon  
    • My 9 year old daughter has the exact same marks as you. It is being dismissed as her doing it to herself. I honestly don't think she is but I do know once she gets the sores she is a chronic picker which does not help.  The main reason they say it is self inflicted is because they are only on her arms and legs - never her torso. Sorry I don't have anything for you but I was wondering where you are getting your sores?  I pulled my daughter off of gluten a year ago and they seemed to have cleared and two months ago I let her eat whatever they served at a birthday party and all the sores are back (still). 
    • Just one point on this - I'm no expert but I wonder if UTIs can present differently, depending on which section of the tract is infected?   Mine tend to be lower down in the urinary tract so I don't feel like I need to go to the loo a lot when I have one, but when I pee or afterwards it hurts, and then I get that feeling of my insides slipping out - as you put it.  My point is you may have a UTI in a different part of your urinary tract to normal.  Just a thought? 1. Diffuse pain sounds like it might be bloating. Are you drinking/eating dairy? 2. Sacroiliac joint inflammation can come about for all sorts of reasons - what you are suggesting would cause it.  However, I tend to find my pain transfers to the side of my groin and pelvis - not centrally.   Here is an interesting article which shows how it refers. http://www.massagetoday.com/mpacms/mt/article.php?id=14394 3.  I'm thinking perhaps it might be worth having a pelvic scan if you can? Internal and external. 4. Ditto - tight clothes are a distant memory! 5.  I'm no longer seeing a chiropractor.   I was in pain for months, then one day I underestimated the height of a step down and jarred my hip.  Agony!  Went to bed for four hours to sleep off the pain -  but the strange thing was my SI joint was much better for many many months after that! 6.  I agree - all this sort of stuff is highly ambiguous.  I remember when I was really concerned about my pain - which was before I had had my scan and then sigmoidoscopy - I did a lot of online research and it seems that a lot of women get unexplained pelvic pain.  So it appears we are not alone. If I were you I'd be inclined to pursue this with a GP, it might be a long journey but you should get some answers and peace of mind. I find unanswered medical questions only ever add to my pain - I think I must tense up with anxiety. Cx  
    • Thanks. Still figuring it all out.
