Thank you for your kind comments about the pictures. Whenever I think of this house and how much I appreciate living here, it reminds me to never give up our hopes and dreams. God can do anything. I tell the story of how we came to live here in Laying my Isaac down (under Coffee Tea Books & Me Favorites in the sidebar). Being able to purchase this house at a price we could afford was a true miracle.
Here is the book that was in the picture from yesterday's post. I once had it and gave it away. It is now available used at Amazon really cheap (I paid $3.00 plus shipping). It is a lovely book to read with many good ideas for decorating our homes. It wasn't listed in the books I'm reading now because I just pulled it off the shelf to look up something and immediately was caught up reading it again. :) There are no pictures and it is a very small book in size but it truly inspiring.
By the way, I don't mind recommendations for books at all. I love them! I will look up the book about diabetes at the library. The only challenge I have with most books on the subject is they are written for people with Type 2 diabetes and I am one of those rare people who developed Type 1 (Juvenile) diabetes in my 40s.
I've spent the last two days reorganizing Christopher's room. This event was brought about by (finally) finding the perfect set of shelves to create a "home" for many of his items. My sister may be visiting next month and I would never have put her in that room the way it looked. Anyone who has lived with a male teenager, was a male teenager, or is a parent of such will understand completely.
