When God called Amy answered

My heart is broken and my mind is confused as I try to understand why bad things happen to great people.
On Monday just past 12 a.m. my dear friend Amy lost her young life in a car accident.
This is a picture of Amy & me at my bridal shower in the spring of 2009.
She was such an amazing person. She was an artist and she had worked for several years at a local Animal Hospital before becoming one of Fayetteville's best hairdressers. Everyone who met her instantly loved her. She cared about everyone she knew. It is still hard for me to believe, I can't help but think that if I show up for my 3:30 appointment today she will be there waiting with a smile.
Amy had her two dogs Tasha & Calvin with her and if animals do go to heaven then they too are in the presence of our Lord. Please pray for her family.
Thank you for following,
Till next time,

Feeling lazy

 Good evening blog friends, I hope every one's new year is off  to a great start. We had a very nice New Year celebration here at home with the kids. We ordered deli trays, made desserts, drank some Moscato {fruit punch for the kids} and it was nice, just the family.

This is the new cross stitch project I'll be working on from time to time when I'm not working on smaller projects. I have always loved these prints so when I found the cross stitch kit on clearance at Michael's I knew I had to have it.
I have gotten a bit more of it done since I took this picture but I know it will take me a while to complete it because I keep stopping to work on pin keeps and things like that.
I haven't been feeling well lately, I have COPD and sometimes simple things like sweeping or mopping the lobby {sometimes our clients pets have accidents} at work is a difficult task and can bring on an attack which is what happened a couple of days ago. This one was severe enough to cause me to nearly pass out.
Struggling to breathe causes my chest to feel sore, kinda like I've been kicked. And I feel tired a lot. I know anyone out there living with COPD or Asthma know what I'm talking about. I have never smoked nor has anyone around me so my doctor isn't quite sure how I came to have it. For a while they thought it was my heart because I was having severe chest pains and had been sick for months. After a visit to Cape Fear Valley ER I was finally diagnosed with COPD.
I would love to hear from any of you who have COPD or has someone in your family who does.
Thanks for stopping by.
Till next time,
Kimberly : )
