Have Had

a few blue days but mostly good ones of late. Christmas was celebrated at my daughter's home on Sunday and we had a very nice time. We will celebrate at my in laws on Saturday and visit with a friend Sunday night.
I am beginning to get tired very easily so I nap a lot. The pain is under control so I am really blessed  on this journey so far. My Heavenly Father provides me with comfort.

The support of my friends and family has been awesome. I feel so loved.

Thank you every one!

I may be crazy..................but I don't think so. Everything tastes better, smells better , looks better and sounds better. Or am I simply appreciating all that was here all along more? I don't know but I do know that the fudge my friend gave me yesterday was far better than any I had ever had. The herbal tea my son's lovely girlfriend makes for me every night has the best aroma of any I have ever drank. The twinkly brown eyes of my youngest son are more warm and beautiful than they have ever have been and the Christmas Carols I listen to bring tears to my eyes as they are so touching and beautiful. Thank you Heavenly Father for all of this and for making me notice it.

I think Heavenly father has lead me down this path to teach me some things. One thing that has hit me right away is how little of my things I really need. I have already offered many of things to people I care about that I think can use them. There is not all that much but it feels good to give them away before I am too ill so they go to the right people and are not wasted.

The other thing is LOVE. I have often over my life not felt very loved. This I had felt as long as I can remember, even as a small small child. I felt I was a disappointment to people. I no longer feel that. I feel more loved than I have ever been. It is a wonderful feeling. Thank you for all the love, the calls, the visits, the offers of help, the beautiful poinsetta, Rex. These things all keep my spirits high. My dear friends and family, I love you.

Well the Cat Scans results were not good. The doctor gives me approximately 6 months to live. I have a lot of living to do in the next precious months. I am amazed by the friends who rally around me to support me. My family has too. I am blessed and this last earthly journey will be easier because of the loved ones who are at my sides. Thank you..............all of you. You know who you are. You give me strength, courage and make me feel so loved. I love all of you too.

Happy Thanksgivng!

It has been an up and down year for me, but all in all I have so much to be thankful for. Though I have several life threatening diseases I feel very well most of the time, my family are all okay and making it through this tough economy and Heavenly Father sure knows I am not underfed!!!!!!!!
Depression has come and gone through this; but Heavenly Father always finds a way to lift me out of my despair.........often by using his faithful servants.
My cat scan and 6 month exam has been moved up due to some rib pain I am having. So with in a week or two I will know the status of my cancer. No matter if it is back or not, I will let the Lord take care of it in His way and His time.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. I am truly grateful for the friends I have.

Stefan and Maddie

Here is Stefan with his girlfriend Maddy. I like her a lot and obviously so does Stefan!


This is my granddaughter Sarrena. She is a delight in every way. I am getting to know her more and  more. We have a lot in common considering the age difference. ;) We are both really bookworms and like the Beattles.
