Murdered Girl A True Hero

Just a couple of days ago, I wrote about two young girls that were murdered in Delphi, Indiana. It is such a sad story, but there is a story today that makes my heart strings tug a little harder. Liberty "Libby" German activated video on her cell phone and caught an audio of the man that is suspected in this case. She is a true hero! Whatever was happening to them, she was in enough presence of her surroundings to know to turn that recording on.

Of course, the young lady will never know what she truly done, but this could be the one piece of evidence that leads to the apprehension of this man or more than one when the case is solved. The man that we are seeing a photo of is a picture that was found on her phone. She truly was very heroic in getting this on her phone. I am sure that he was not aware that she had the phone recording and I praise God that the phone was found with this information on it.

My heart breaks that this young lady probably knew that she and her friend, Abby Williams was in danger in order for her to do this. It terrifies me to think that she may have known that she might never make it home, but she still managed to give the police clues to a suspect or suspects. I am so truly proud of her, even though I did not know her.

Once again, here is a photo of the man suspected of killing these young ladies. Do you know him? If so, please come forward!

Suspect In Delphi, Indiana Murders

My heart is simply breaking as I write this post. The tears have been shed multiple times over the last week as I have heard more and more about the story of two young girls that had their lives taken way too soon by a monster! I am writing this to share the story of how precious our children are and how fast they can be gone, plus I want to share the photo of the main suspect because police are saying that he could be anywhere.

If you happen to have seen this man or know who he is PLEASE contact the Carroll County Indiana police at 765-564-2413. He is considered the prime suspect in the killing of two 13 year old girls that were hiking a popular walking trail last Monday.
Abby Williams and Liberty "Libby" German were dropped off on a popular walking trail in Delphi, Indiana last Monday to enjoy an unseasonably warm Feb. day that they were out of school. They were to meet their ride later that afternoon but never arrived at that destination. The last known photo of them was taken on the Monon High Bridge in a Snapchat photo that Libby posted. It shows Abby walking on the bridge and many are saying a man is seen hiding behind a tree in that photo. Is it possible that he was just waiting for the perfect victim or victims in this case?

The girls had cell phones with them and I am sure that being from a small town they felt that they were safe being together and as far as I am concerned they done everything right - Had a buddy system and had a phone, walking the trail in the middle of the day in broad daylight. What more could they have done to protect themselves? Carry mace? Carry a knife or other kind of weapon? What kind of life would that be for children?

Police are not releasing many details in their deaths or of their disappearance, but they have now said that this man in wanted as the main suspect. He is seen on a trail cam in the same area as the girls in a close proximity of time.

These two young ladies did not deserve to die! The monster that terrorized them and killed them needs to be behind bars and taken off the streets to protect other children that might cross his path.

Cloudy Sunday, but the Son is up

Sleep has been evasive to say the least for the last couple of months. My dear husband does not seem to sleep well as he is still quite sore and uncomfortable from his surgery. He is doing a little better though and has walked a few steps on his own without the aid of the cane. This morning, I woke around 6 and decided that since the grand doll would not be over until around 8, I would simply lie in bed for a bit. Nice rest anyway.

Following that, the day begins and it is time to enjoy the grand and make sure breakfast is complete for everyone. The clouds and fog were quite depressing this morning, as I was hoping for a nice sunrise to wake to since the temperatures are suppose to be near record warmth. As I set in the quiet half hour or so before doll arrived, I was thanking God for His blessings and praying for those that need them at the moment when suddenly a great peace came over me and I realized that the Son is up. He is always up and waiting for us to come to Him and willing to let Him guide your life. We think that we always need to have the answer and yet, our answer is right there if we will let Him control and guide.

In our lives, we need the sun. It nourishes our bodies with vitamins we need to keep us healthy, but our spiritual lives need the Son. He nourishes our bodies with all we need!

Poke Me With a Fork- I'm Done

Many of you may wonder what has happened to my blog and let me just say that I am still here, but barely. On Jan. 8, I had to call an ambulance for my husband as he was unable to walk, sit, move on his own at all. He had complained that his hip hurt on the previous day, but nothing to make me believe that it was bad.
  We went to the emergency room where he stayed most of that day. They done an x-ray of his hip and found nothing wrong there. After hours of waiting, they finally decided to admit him to do an MRI the next day. Pain meds were not aiding at all with the pain and obviously, they had no clue as to what was wrong. We were there from 11 a.m until after 6 p.m. when they decided to admit him.
  We spent three days there and never really seen a doctor or got any answers. His A1C was high and they were super concerned about it, but not the pain that he was having. He was in such excruciating pain and even the morphine pump was not really helping other than he was sleeping most of the time. After a couple of visits from therapy, they decided that he was able to go home. Still with no real answers ( a NP stated that he had some layers of issues in his lower back that was causing pain), they discharged him.
  The following day he was still unable to walk and still complaining that his hip and leg was hurting extremely bad. By 8 p.m. that night he decided that it felt like the left side was beginning to hurt and he absolutely could not stand the pain in his leg any longer, so back to the ER we go, but a different one this time. Unsatisfied with the first and closer hospital, we made a trip and drove an hour to another one. Within 45 minutes, the ER doctor had gotten the results of his MRI from the first hospital and told us that he had several severe issues going on, the main one being pinched nerves,  and that he should be seen with their spine triage center doctors as soon as possible. He sent us home with new meds and said their spine center would call with an appointment. They did - the very next morning!
  We seen the doctor at the Spine Triage Center and was informed that there was some very serious issues going on. He had disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, pinched nerves, muscle weakness, herniated discs, and most of it was just wear and tear of daily work and life. He suggested that he do therapy and follow up with him. Therapy was scheduled for the following week. He gave him Gabapentin, which is a nerve medication and sent us home.
  That was Friday afternoon, on Sunday my husband informs me that he is having problems lifting his foot off the floor. I said that we would mention it to the therapist and I would call the doctor. The trip to therapy was a total waste really as they would not work with him at all as they were afraid that they might damage him more and said that we should speak with the spine doctor again about the foot. I called and once again, we were seen the next day.
  I took the MRI results and image disk to him and within 10 minutes, he came in to tell us that he believed that my husband needed to see a neurosurgeon and he called the one in his building and explained our situation. We were immediately rushed to his office and there we actually got to see that a nerve was most certainly pinched and that he was concerned about permanent damage if it was not operated on. So plans were made. We went through days of pre-op appointments due to his blood sugar being high ( from the poor diet we had been having due to holidays and the fudge he had eaten) and the fact that he is a smoker. Finally, surgery was okayed and we were just a few days from the date.
  Now, my husband does not like to go to the doctor and certainly has never had surgery so you can be that he was nervous. When he was wheeled away to go to surgery, I was sure I would hear them calling me to tell me that he was being an unreasonable patient, but he did fine. Surgery went well and he is two weeks post surgical today. Walking is still difficult and he is still in some pain, but I think that he is on the road to recovery. We see the surgeon tomorrow and I am anxious to say what he says about his recovery!
  On top of all of this, I have been sick and my mother in law went into the hospital with pneumonia and has since been sent to a rehab and I now have my father in law, who lives next door, to help with as he does not drive or read. Needless to say, I have my hands full. Plus, I need to figure out a way to go to work since my Pink Zebra business is not going well. UGH!

Mother's Day

 Mother's Day can be such a beautiful day for many people, but I always think of the moms that have suffered losses of children, either ...
