Grape Jelly Monday

Hey Y'all!
My daddy picked two gallons of grapes from the grapevine at the house where I grew up and brought them to The Doublewide.
I stewed them and got them ready to make jelly finally tonight.
I ended up canning 12 half pint jars and still had jelly so I used a pint jar and two more quarts. I sure hope they do well because I've been working on this blamed jelly all weekend, off and on.
I've got a lot going on right now in my life and I ask for your prayers.
Mammaw has a really bad sore on her leg. It's so early in the school year that I can't get off from work so my sister and my daddy will be taking her to the doctor Wednesday afternoon.
I think it's infected, so pray that MRSA hasn't shown up again. That was horrible last time when she got MRSA in the hospital from the bedsore she had.
Big Daddy's daddy and step mom have invited us to go to the beach with them this weekend. I would LOVE to go, but I'm still not sure yet. I hate to leave all of the responsibility on my sister to take care of my mammaw while we're gone, and I'll have to find a substitute piano player for Sunday.
I'm trying to talk mammaw into coming to live with us. She feels that she would be a burden on us but seriously I feel that it would make it easier. It's so hard to know that she's there all alone in her house just sitting in front of the TV. At least she would be surrounded by us and we have friends and family that come in and out of here a lot. I really would appreciate your prayers here because I know it's a big undertaking to move her in over here, but she's not going to be able to live alone much longer.
Also, school is going well. I enjoy it but everyday I miss my youngin' more and more. Have I told you how bad I wish we were filthy rich so that I didn't have to work? I love spending time with Robbie and hate dropping him off at daycare everyday to go to my job.
I hope y'all have a wonderful week.
We had revival two weeks ago at church and it was awesome. 20 people were saved during that revival! Isn't it amazing how God still moves?!
Be blessed!
I'm headed to bed and hope I can sleep instead of listening for the lids on the jelly jars to seal!

I'll be praying for you and I hope your grandmother will move in with you "willing" and that all goes well.
Hope you get to go to the beach this weekend! You know the Roberts clan will be there too.
Love you girl

My prayers are with you and mammaw.

Go to the beach and let your sister handle it, never know when you will not have another chance.
