Ladies, I need your prayers for peace and guidance. Our life here has taken a very hard turn.

My almost 17 year old just told me she's pregnant. There was plans for her to marry her boyfriend in about 4 months, before he went to boot camp. Now things are gettin messed up cause his family thinks she's just tryin to trap him.

Everyone is gettin involved and he's scared and confused. I would really like to sit down and talk with them both alone, so we can make a plan and figure this all out. The fact is if he panics and bails, we will be the ones takin care of this baby. I think this should be between the kids and us since no one else will be raisin or payin for this baby.

I'm feelin very unsteady right now. Like the ground is spinnin under me. I don't like this at all. I'm not supposed to be a grandma at 34!

My Hubby is pretty upset right now as well. He is certian that her boyfriends family will convince him to leave her. He keeps sayin stuff like, 'If they break him and her up I'll break up each one of them into little pieces!' and such. He was so proud of all those two had made it through and how well they were handlin feuds and fussin with each other. We were both sure they would make it.

Right now we're just tryin to help her hold it together and figure out as much of this as we can.

On the slightly brighter side... I tend to cook when I'm upset. I have 3 1/2 dozen jars of jelly on the counter and 2 more batches of violet jelly to get done. I think I'll get some dandilions picked and get started on that jelly too.

I'll have a full pantry of springtime jelly by the time this all settles down. Cannin and cookin soothes me. Maybe I'll make up some cinnamon rolls and egg wraps for the freezer.

Any advice?

Hi porchies!
Angela, my prayers and thoughts are with you. If your daughter picked the right guy, then hopefully he won't let his family influence his heart. I'll pray for your daughter and her boyfriend.
Well, as of tomorrow, I'll be half a quarter away from being a sophomore in high school! Ah, how time flies... It seems like just yesterday it was Freshmen Fun Day and I was so scared! And I was scared of the sophomores espcecially, but I will not be a mean sophomore, I want the new freshmen to feel welcome. Wow, it's crazy that this year, at this time, I was thinking about high school... Sorry, kind of a mundane subject, but I've just been thinking about it lately. I hope everyone is doing well!

Angela...You're between a rock and a hard place! If it was ok with his family before it should still be ok. Regardless of what there is a baby is coming and everyone needs to get on board. How that happens will be another story. Can you talk to his family? She didn't do it alone so he will be the daddy forever and they will be the grandparents too! On the other hand you will be the one picking up the pieces if he bails. 5 minutes of pleasure gets you a lifetime of commitment. Stay as calm as you can and try to give good sound advice. Let the dust settle a little and keep praying for a good outcome. It's always easy to give some advice when your not the one freaking out! I can imagine how you feel but now that it's done you will figure it out. I cook and bake when I'm freaking out too! I also eat it therefore the endless weight gain! Hang in there...will be praying for ALL of you.

Be Blessed,
Darlene

Wow...My Porchies, LIFE happens when we are making plans...doesn't it?

Angela...feeling bad for your daughter and for you and hubby too. It is hard when kids put the cart before
the horse...but like Darlene said...It takes two. Your daughter didn't get pregnant by herself. The boyfriend needs to be responsible for his actions. And if he was ready to marry her before anyway...why would the baby change that? If nothing else it should just move things forward, maybe a little faster than originally planned. Let's all pray that he is the young man you all think he is...and his love for your daughter will out weigh the negative advice from his family.

Staci...glad to see you popping on, even though your schedule has been hectic. We love it having you here to chat with.

Dana...how goes things girl? Seems like ages since you were on the Porch. How are the girls?

Has anyone heard how Theresa is doing with her back tumor? Theresa...if you are on just reading please catch us up on how things are going.

Luanne...glad that your mom is doing so well. How is your boyfriend doing? Is he getting better?

Pam...I could have used more of your "calm" tea the last few days. My DH and I got in a huge disagreement over $. And It was not very harmonious around here for several days. I am happy to say that we talked and he listened and we resolved the issue. Praise God for committed hearts to the institution of Marriage...because I could have walked over this one.

Well, I have an apartment inspection in the morning so I need to get to sleep...so I can get up and run the vaccuum in the morning.

My friend Verla goes in for Quintuple by-pass surgery at 7:00 am this morning. They figure they will be lucky if they can actually do
3 by-passes, So, please continue to pray for her. She is a very large woman besides...which increases her risk factor.

Love, Hugs and Joy,
Peg

Wow, there's tornado warnings all over and also in our personal lives! Angela, at 17, I was in your daughter's shoes...terrified and feeling alone. I spent 14 years with a man who was convinced I got pregnant just to trap him, not true at all. He was never faithful and even though I will always be grateful for the life we produced, I'm sure she would have had a happier childhood as the daughter of adoptive parents. My parents never forgave my husband or me for causing them disgrace, my children ended up resenting me and their father, etc. Babies shouldn't be having babies but they do. Your daughter is lucky her parents support her but dragging a young man to the alter doesn't seem to be to be the best choice to me.

That's just my 2 cents...my prayers are with you all, You're going to need lots of them because there are going to be heartaches for you all until this is all sorted out. The bottom line is...love your daughter and your grandbaby with all your heart and soul. Unconditional love from a parent is what I wanted and never got and it haunted me for the rest of my life.

Hi Porchies!

There has been a lot going on!

Angela~ My thoughts and prayers are with you and our family. I don't understand why the boy's family is now against this if they planned to get married soon anyway. I do agree with Nancy - the best thing you can do is what you are already doing - being a supportive, loving parent. It does take two to get into this situation but that always seems to get lost in the mix - doesn't it? It is a shame that his family does not seem to trust this boy to make his own decisions. Hopefully he will make the right decision for himself and your DD.

Peg~ Will be sending prayers and healing thoughts to yur friend, Verla. Such a serious surgery - I hope that all goes well and she can start on the road to recovery.

Megan~ I am sure that you will be a great sophomore - too bad there are not more like you out there in this world!

Luanne~ I will be keeping your cousin in my prayers as wll. My grandfather was on dialysis (many many years ago) It did help him tremendously.

Well ladies, that's all for now. I hope you all stay safe and enjoy the day!

Good morning everyone!

Angela - our prayers are with you and your family. Know that we are there for you if you need to talk or "vent"!

Thank you everyone for your prayers for my cousin. She is supposed to start dialysis today or tomorrow, and we are praying it will help.

Peg - thanks for asking about Mom and BF also. Mom is doing really well. BF has good days and bad days - struggling with depression more than the health issues at this point, I think, so I'm trying to be strong for him. He has so many things he wants to do, and the health issues are keeping him from doing them, so he sits and broods. Prayers going out for Verla. Please keep us posted on how she is doing.

Staci - so good to hear from you. We know how busy you are!

Off to a conference today in Bethlehem, PA - so have a great day everybody!

Luanne

Prayers for all of you in the path of these vicious storms..be safe
we are supposed to get some nasty weather as well...
Angela honey babies are a blessing regardless of the circumtances and if you love you DD as i know you do
then just be supportive and your loving self and rejoice in a new little life to come..I agree with
nancy and peggy.
..but if they were going to marry in four months what difference does this make afew months early..
if he bails because of his family how sad for his loss of both a wonderful woman and child he'll never know..maybe you should call a family meeting with all parties concerned. they too have alot to lose this is there grandbaby as well and you would think they would want to be a part of that..I pray for all of you as this should be a happy time...and i pray for you as you have been thru so much..keep your head up and stay strong for all your family..you can do it.
luanne ..prayers for your mom.
peggy prayers for your friend Verla surgery...hope all goes well..

Staci...Thank you for my BD gift. I love the book. I never saw it before. I'm going to subscribe. Thanks for the card and kind words!

Luanne...Thank you for the nice BD card and tea. Hope your BF gets out of his funk now that the weather is starting to get nice.

Peggy...Money and kids always seem to be at the root of all the disagreements don't they? How is Verla? Prayers continue.

Angela...Hang in there and remember how you felt way back when. Take a deep breath and get some tea and your Bible. Comfort and wisdom come at the Father's feet! It will be ok. Love is the key. The biggest upheavels in life turn out to be the biggest blessings sometimes. KISS...Keep it simple sister. Don't let too many people get involved and wreck havoc in this situation. Your family and his family period and God! Everybody has an opinion but everybody doesn't belong giving it. Prayers continue.



Be Blessed,
Darlene

Hi everyone!
Elaine, that is too sweet, thank you :)
Angela, please update us as soon as possible!
Well, we are in the home stretch at school! I feel like all of my teachers are trying to play catch up, and I understand that things come up during the year, but it just frustrates me because now we get loaded down with a bunch of work! Except one class that I can't complain about right now is World History. We're watching this documentary about North Korea, and it is insane. I highly recommend it. It's called The Vice's Guide to North Korea. Love to all my porchies!

Darlene...very wise advice about sitting at the feet of the Lord...with your bible...praying for His wisdom. His is the only wisdom that matters. ~ Mailed out your birthday gift two days ago. Happy Happy Birthday Baby!

My friend Verla made it through heart surgery. PTL! They were able to do five by-passes but they said her arteries looked like those of an 80 year old. They said she would sleep for the first 24 hours but she was doing ok...so far. Now will pray that she doesn't get pneumonia. Thank You For your prayers...this really was a risky surgery. At best By-pass surgery buys you 10 more years before your arteries and veins start disenegrating. So, she will be around 56 by then...still way too young to die but atleast she made it through this major heart event.

Tired tonight...grabbing some tea and a good book. More tomorrow!

Love, Hugs and Blessings,
Peggy

So many prayers going out for all you ladies and your loved ones.

Peggy~ Glad to hear your friend's surgery went well.
Luanne~ Glad your momma is doing well and you had a good visit.

Angela~ Lots of hugs and prayers for you and your family. I agree with Darlene with what she said about everyone having an opinion but everyone doesn't belong giving it. So many times folks feel like the boy/man should do the "right" thing by marrying the girl/woman and raising this child and well he should if he is going to love her and the baby and be a wonderfully loving and supportive husband and father. But what if he doesn't behave in this fashion? What if he was to turn out like mine and Nancy's husbands and be cruel to your daughter and make hers and your grandbabies lives miserable? I can't offer you any advice just hugs and prayers. And you know we're all gonna want to hear how your daughter gets along in her pregnancy and of course we're gonna want to see beautiful baby pics when the new one finally gets here.

Also praying for everyone affected by the storms. We have had a couple of tornados touch down in our area in the last week. It has been kind of scary and we feel like we've spent a good deal of time in the cellar. Not much sleep either the past week. But we are ever so grateful that the storms have not been terrible to us, that we have a cellar to take cover in. About 5 miles away in the old mine ground there's an old dragline. Ya'll know how big one of those machines are? If you don't, do a google search. It is a massive piece of equipment. Well the tornado that passed through Tuesday, made a little pit stop at the old mine. It picked the dragline up, turned it and set it back down. That was the worst storm we've had and also the closest to home.

Well ladybugs, it is time for me to go. We are having birthday parties tonight for my Caitie and my nephew, Kashada. Caitie will be 14 on the 1st and Kashada will be 11 on the 2nd. They grow up so fast!

Have a wonderful night!

Oh Pam! Thank you for the tea! It's my fave! Wal-Mart quit carrying the Tazo calming tea and I had just ran out when I got your card in the mail the other day and with this crazy weather it was just what I needed. Thank you!!

Hugs~ Melanie

Sorry to be MIA for a few days. What a lot of stuff going on with everyone!
Not much going on here. My date was nice. We had a nice dinner and seemed to hit it off. We will see how it goes.

Peggy, so glad your friend made it through surgery. I hope she does well. Amazing what a good team of doctors can do.

Angela, what a dilemma. Sometimes just backing off is the best. Your daughter and her boyfriend need some space it seems. Hopefully they will be able to figure out what to do. With too much pressure from either side may push them to make a decision they will regret forever. They need to know that they can take the time to figure it out. If they were getting married in 4 months.. they will have time to decide. I'll pray for them and everyone involved. Sorry it puts such a burden on your family as you may have to pick up the pieces.

Melanie, sounds like you have had your share of scary nights in the basement. Here in Oregon, not much happens like that. In California we had earthquakes every once in a while but not very often and mostly little tremors. No big deal.
I can't imagine what you must go through every year with these storms.

Luanne, good thoughts for your cousin. Sounds like some big life changes for her. I hope the dialysis works and she starts feeling better.

I'm off to the Oregon coast on Monday. Can't wait. It will be nice to get away with a friend for a while.

Everyone stay safe and healthy!

Bunny~ So glad th hear that you connected with our date and all went well. Enoy your time on the coast!

Melanie~ I can't even begin to imagine what you have been going through. I am sending prayers your way.

Deb~ Thank you so much for the Tazo tea and I can't wait to try the recipe.

I was teaching 8th grade math all day(besides getting up waaay early to watch the royal wedding). So I am bushed. I'm going to out my feet up for a bit and then get dinner started. I hope you all have an enjoyable evening. Stay safe!

Hello sisters!
Darlene, Happy Belated Birthday!
Bunny, I'm glad your date went well.
Peggy, I'm glad your friend got through surgery well. I know what it feels like to wait for good news like that.
Melanie, Happy Early Birthday to Caitie and Kashada!
Well, I've been home for the past two days with the stomach flu:( But I'm feeling a little better, just exhausted! I have been able to catch up on crocheting, though. I'm also going to be reading a little bit more, too, so I guess it's not all bad. I'm excited though, mostly! On Sunday, my grandparents from Michigan are coming to visit! On Tuesday, I have a grandparents mass at school, so they are going to be coming to celebrate that with me and my dad's parents, my Nana and Nanu. So I guess that puts a smile on my face:)

It's almost time to pass on the "TeaBags" Teapot to Theresa already. Where did this month go? With all of this wind....I've been blown from one end of April to the other. LOL
I have a short story for you out of a cute little "Time For Tea" book my Sister and BIL gave us for our 4th Anniversary last year.Enjoy!

~~An Informal Tea~~

One Sunday afternoon the telephone rang. It was my next-door neighbor, whose backyard borders mine. "Oh, I need a break!" she said. So we agreed to meet on my wooden deck in exactly 10 minutes. I offered to make tea for two, but she suggested we each bring our own. Splendid, I thought, let's Simplify! I made my mug of tea and waited. Soon she hurried out her back door and ran barefoot across the grass. Her shoes and socks were in one hand; a tall glass of ice tea was in the other. It wasn't long before I was chatting and she was listening. I talked about my grandbabies and the clever things they were doing. Then she took a turn, reading form her journal about God's redirection in her children's careers. There were no flowers on the table, no doilies under my cup, no bone china, no teapots, no crumpets, and no scones and jam. But in one short hour, the teacups of our souls were filled to the brim. And we both returned to our work, refreshed and ever so thankful for precious moments shared with a caring neighbor.

This is what I want for my Sisters who have such heavy hearts, are worried, or lonely. Someone to share a cup of tea with. Someone to listen to all your troubles and to fill the teacup of your soul to the brim.
I lift my teacup to you all. I love you all! It's nice to know that we are all here for each other in thought & prayer! Cheers Sisters!

Megan...Thanks for the BD wishes. How nice to have your GPs going to Mass with you. Feel better from that nasty flu!

Bunny...How nice to hit it off on your date. Hope it continues. Have fun on your vacation.

Peggy...Thanks for the BD wishes. Glad Verla is doing ok. Show us some of your heart yoyos. I wish I could do them!

Sharon emailed me that she knew she was the ornament swapper for April but I haven't gotten anything yet. Anybody else?
I'll email her again. I did last week but she didn't respond.

Judy... what a lovely story. You are a newly wed almost! Keep the cards coming I really enjoy them! I just tried licorice tea and you're right it is sweet. I doubled the water and it was less strong and I loved it!

Be Blessed,

Hello sisters,
just popping in real quick. I hear thunder and don't want to be on here too long.

bunny glad your date went well. Have fun on vacation.

Peggy~ glad your friend made it through surgery. Will keep praying.

Megan~being a teacher I understand where you are coming from. But remember we want you to learn as much as possible. We have your best interests at heart dear one. My little butterflies feel like you do. We have 3 weeks left and already they are in summer mode. So hang in there.


angela~praying for you. I don't think there is much I could say that hasn't already by our dear sisters.

I did not watch the royal wedding but I must say they made a lovely couple and I raised my teacup up in their honor.

well dear sisters, I m off. WE have our school plant sale tomorrow and it was a busy day today. So I am going to get my book and slide into bedtime sleep.

love to you all
Tammy

Hey Porchies! I only have a second but I wanted to post a picture.

Our first ducky baby hatched this mornin! We were so sure they were all cooked. There was a day last week that the incubator got to 120 and that's how we found it when we got home from town. This little guy made it though!

His name is Sheldon!

Precious Angela! Glad the little guy made it.

Bunny~ Good to hear you finally got to meet up and glad it went well. Hope things continue in the good direction!

Thank you all for the prayers. It has been scary and there has been some property damage, but we haven't seen anything like what they are facing in the south. My heart and prayers go out to all.

Judy~ I love the emails, e-cards and the tea story above. I came on today with a need to connect with my girlfriends.

This weekend my son is on a campout with the boyscouts. I got a call from one of the leaders (let's just call him J) yesterday evening asking if I would mind hauling some of the boys and gear up to the campsite since his truck is on the fritz. I told him that I would be glad to help and so we all met at the church and load up. Then J's wife had to leave for a minute to get something she forgot. She wasn't out of the parking lot a second and he turns to me and says, "Now that my wife is gone I can tell you that you're the hottest woman around." I'm like "WHAT?!" He said this in front of one of the other leaders and some of the boys, one of which is mine. This isn't the first time he's said something like this to me. The other time, it was a message on facebook. That message wasn't so straight forward. But what he said last night just left me super uncomfortable. I haven't talked to honey yet. It was so late when we finally got in from running our boys to the campout and I hadn't seen him all week, I just wanted to put what J said out of my mind and enjoy the little bit of what was left of our evening. I don't know what to do about it other than to ask him to keep his comments to himself. There are other problems with the troop and I've been tempted before to transfer DS to another, but he likes the boys in his troop sooo I don't know how much of an option that is. Anyway really just needed someone to talk to and get it off my chest. And you girls are such great friends, I knew I could come to you with this.

Hugs to you all~
Melanie

Melanie~I'm glad stormwise you are all ok. J is out of control. He is a leader for those young boys and that surely does not show a leadership role. He was inappropiate to you but most importantly in front of the boys and another leader. You could move your son but that really isn't the issue. The one that needs to move is J. You may be hotter than hell but leaders, priests, congressmen and whomever else that think they can act in a manner that disrespects the position they hold need to be removed and disciplined for their actions. The only one that can make that happen is you. Either you do the right thing or you let him continue to do it to others in front of the boys he is supposed to mentor. What else does he do in front of them that you don't know about? This is a scarey world and you can never be to careful.I know this might sound harsh but until we hold people accountable for their actions they will still be out there doing what they want. This is a national organization and I'm sure this would be disturbing to them.Tell your son to recite the pledge and see what you think then!!!! Good Luck!

Angela~How cte is Sherman! Are there any others left to hatch? How's everything else?

Tammy~Wow you get out of school early out there. Lucky you!



Be Blessed,

Here's a dried out prettier Sheldon. He seems to like nappin with his teddy bear.
