I am thankful or grateful to be able to see my family and friends in England and my family and friends in Oregon. I am a little nervous or anxious because that is the way I am when I travel. The other bit is about money. There is so very little of it. Also the paper work that I need to do in Portland. I am nervous to pack too. ha ha ha

Another thing is I wonder if I have to change my name right after I fix the paper work. I am hoping if I do that it can be done from here.

This is silly but I want to take a little present for some of the people I love. I have talked to Taki about it. I am hoping he will pick up 2 for each person on my list. (Mom, Dad, Bubba, ‘Becca, Chantelle, Jaymalea, Brenda, Denise, Michelle) None of them want anything but I WANT to take them something. Taki thinks it will make my suitcase too heavy. 😦 Also for Diana , Bruna and Maria’s neighbor in England. 

It is so wonderful. I am going to get to hug so many people I love and miss. I am grateful and praise the Lord. I am trying not to let the anxiety take over my pleasure.

I have brought up most of my favorite clothing to be packed. I will pack it in a little while. I’m going to video chat with Maria so I bring some coats for her and one of Yannis. 

I’ve been doing loads and loads of laundry to help my guy’s while I am gone. ha ha ha I have managed to save one plant, a cactus that the guy’s didn’t water while I was gone.  Now I worry it might not make it while I am gone again. ha ha ha All the other plants were dead when I got back and stayed that way. 


More later, Debra


I have been working on this paperwork since August 2019.  I tried one more time tonight to get it done over the phone. It is not going to happen. I will have to fly. ha ha ha 


The good of this is I will get to see and hug people I love. People who are my world. Folks I love with all that I have got. I do not say and don’t know if they know it but they are gifts to me from the Lord. He loves me unconditionaly.  No matter what I do in this world I can never repay the gratefullness I feel for the love I give and get from my family and friends.


My emotions are cooking me in anxiousness. I wish it was possible to have a  traveling companion. It is a stretch to get me where I am going and back. That is OK, the Lord has given me the means to do it at a stretch but it is there. Thankfully!


I have some silent prayer requests. When praying let the Lord know you are praying for those I need prayed over. He will take care of the rest. thank you


for now good bye

I’m a grandmother now. I have a grand daaughter. I am like all grandma’s very happy. She lives in England.


It was beautiful here today. Took a drive with Taki and then another drive with a friend of ours (Kostas -Lamias). They sat drinking coffee while I took a short walk on the beach. The sun was out and absolutely lovely.


Michael-John will soon be finished with his mandatory military service, Praise the Lord.


I need to get his  room to be cleaned out. I am still in Maria and Yannis room. I will move upstairs soon.


be well, happy new year with health and faith,


This is a wonderful reminder.

The Godly Chic Diaries

Our Savior was crushed and spit upon….

The king of kings was born to a lowly girl (Luke 1:4) The creator of the universe was swaddled and laid in a feeding trough (Luke 2:7) The first to hear of the birth of the Messiah and come to worship him were mere shepherds (Luke 2: 8-17) Jesus was born to a family too poor to offer the sacrifice of a lamb — so they gave two turtledoves instead. (Luke 2: 22-24) Leveticus 12:6-8)

Are we this lowly. Are we this humble? Or do we believe that we are always entitled to something bigger, better or more than we already have. Are you too prideful to do the unnoticed and embarrassing tasks — like washing the dirty feet of others, hoping they will reciprocate or express their deep gratitude…

Don’t ever become so high that you believe, think or feel, that you…

My boys are on their way home from visiting their big sister. woo hoo


Bible study is being held at Helen’s new home about the time they arrive.


It is beautiful outside. Bright happy sun. Perfect for doing laundry.


Maybe Taki can drop me off at Helen’s after i see my handsome kids!


be well, ‘live long, prosper”

It was just another day. Slept in late. Got a few things done.

Highlight of the day video chatting with 2 of the kids. 2nd highlight, Evie passed her international drivers license test. woo-hoo

Received no bad news from family or friends. Praise the Lord.

Got a few jobs done. Bought a yellow rose bush. I walked to the big super market for a few things. A cashier reminded me of the rose I gave her in the Summer. She told me the store now sold rose bushes. I’ve asked Taki to help me plant it tomorrow. My others are red and pink. Yellow is a good addition.

I’ve been watching Blue Planet on Netflix (a gift from a kid). It’s about the Earth’s sea creatures. I’m enjoying it.

wishing you faith and health, with love, Debra

The house feels a bit odd. We went from having 3 younguns living here to one. The housekeeping seems to have changed very little. ha ha ha

My oldest did most of the housework and I helped a bit. Now I do it all and wow I sure do miss my worker bee. lol

It’s off season so i’m not working. I try not to think about when I do start working. 😦 It will be a CHALLENGE. 

Our oldest indoor cat came back from her sterilization and acted odd and didn’t eat or drink until the 2nd day. I was assured she would come round. Today she even played a bit with her baby housemate. I was relieved.

A box of treats arrived from family and there are still bits and pieces of it left. I’m stretching them out for as long as I can.

I  texted with Boo-Boo and she is a bit sick. I hope it passes soon. Also hoping it is related to making such a big move. Please pray for her.

M-J has a job offer for the Summer. I hope he takes it.

May the Lord Bless you and may you have faith that he will, Love from me to you
