    It's been a bummer of a summer here lately-so i'm going to start posting some good news and hope some good luck starts soon. My dad and I both got a full-time job at the same place and on the same shift. My family has been going through a crisis lately-so it's about itme something good happened. Share your good news :).

    Let's see...good news.

    Well, we just finished our pen for the goats! It's small and temporary, but it works. I posted about it in Goat Frenzy.

    We have food on our plates, a roof that belongs to us, gas for our car, jobs, healthy pets, we're healthy as possible.

    All things to be grateful for. :thumbup:

    Did you do well on your sale, Katrina? Our Association has it's sale at the end of September and I'm working on the ads now. Work, work, work, and no play. I hope you did good, a lot of the Boer goat sales here in Texas are showing a reduction in earnings.

    Briana, That the good lord for the jobs. It is a true blessing in this economy.

    Good News, Well I have a waiting list for my 2011 babies. I have had to decide to breed more does then I wanted to just so I have enough to sell

    I sold 22 goats.

    I got my Gracie back :cool:

    We got as new horse. :stars:

    My husband was diagnosed with diabetes early and we are getting it under control with diet. (It is a blessing we cough it in the very early stage and it is treated with diet) and not meds.

    The lord has blessed us with LOTS and LOTS of rain. So we are out a 7 year drought.

    Well, hubby visited the oncologist on Tuesday, his CEA (tumor protein blood marker) dropped alot! From 60.1 down to 32!!! The CT scan showed everything was stable too.....WOOHOOO!!!! The oncologist is in full agreement with the surgery to remove the spleen after he completes chemo and is helping us get a consult set up!

    Though my hubby lost his job of 16 years, I still have mine and he has been able to do odd jobs regularly, we have a roof over our heads, a plentiful garden, milk is continuing to flow, I met a wonderful new friend that loves her goats as much as I do , I will be adding a beauty of a doeling to my nigi herd soon and I still wake up

    Even when things happen that can get us lower than the gates of h e l l there are always good things to raise us up!
