I know many of you have missed me. I missed you and my computer service more. It’s a long story, but I just got back on, the first time since Sunday morning.
“If God gives us wealth and property and lets us enjoy them, we should be grateful and enjoy what we have worked for.
It is a gift from God.”

Josiah Huckaby is at home!!!!!
So I’m a little slow getting this update posted…but Josiah got to come home Monday evening!!! He’s doing great & loving being at home! We have been very busy trying to get things unloaded & organized, as well as trying to keep up with his crazy med list & schedule but I feel like we are starting to work out some kinks in our routine. It hasn’t been easy and frankly I’m exhausted but it is completely worth it…and I was able to get some much needed sleep last night! To God be the glory!!! 😁 KK
I talked with Eleanor last night. She and Buddy Morris were still home waiting. I’ll post an update when I know they are back at the hospital.
