POTD & Prayer Request

(click on images for better view)

Today's POTD is of my finally organized & clean pantry. Over the past several months, I've pretty much let my pantry go & boy, did it turn into a mess! Amazing what kinds of things just get thrown in there when there's no place else to put them. So I decided today was the day to purge & purge I did! I ended up filling 2 trash bags with stuff. I honestly don't know what I'd do without my pantry! I don't think I'll ever be able to own another house without one. I love having my cabinet space just for my dishes & glassware & a separate place just for food. Jim & I installed this wire shelf on the door of the pantry a few months ago & it has been a huge lifesaver! Yes, we love Jello, especially Jello shots!

If you believe in the power of prayer, could you please keep my Mom in your prayers? I just got a phone call from my sister Donna today & she told me that they're admitting Mom back into the hospital because she's really weak & hasn't been eating. She's been having to use a walker ever since she got out of the hospital & she's even fallen a few times trying to get up. And now her leg is purple again, so the doctor said that once she regains her strength, he's going to have to amputate her leg :( Which means that they'll have to put her under sedation again & last time they did that, she almost didn't survive! I may try to go home again this weekend since Cassie doesn't have school on Monday & Jim's off from work due to Martin Luther King Day.....just have to wait & see how things go first.

Thanks in advance for the prayers,
