Some Bunny(s) Loves Me



Can you believe it..?? the highlight of the day is mail
and I hardly EVER get to the mail box..Now 
hubby brings it in..
Monday brought squeals of delight from ME!!

This is from my friend Dana of 
all pink and girly.. PINK hot cocoa..2 packs.
A hand made pink candle (Vanilla Lace)
Handmade pink card & what a sweet lil box.
I was so surprised.!!





And look what my dear sweet wonderful loving best friend husband
brought me home ...He is the love of my life..and I thank GOD that 
I am his wife.




OH..look what Jan of  Bold & Free sent..
She shared her hanky treasures with me..
I just love them ALL..and I sure want to make 
something girly with them..Perhaps I'd best
get that almost blank canvas out again today
& see what God puts in my head.



and last but not least (BY FAR)
my dear blog friends are praying..writing..emailing..calling..
asking for a wider circle of prayer ..I wish you all
could know how much it helps..It makes my day, my week, go
so much sweeter.. It's definitely a blessing.

Saturday I was so tired..I was in bed most the day and night.
Sunday..I ate, rested..then Rich and I went for a nice walk
here in the Singing Woods..snow on the ground
but it was warm.  Hannah  dog went with us too..
She peed about 12 times..LOL..and mostly where we 
could see deer track.

Thanks for caring.
Gotta go ..my friend Sally is here
making salmon salad & she baked bread.

I'm off to see my psychiatrist
  later  today too. Rich is going
to drive me..everyone needs a little help now & then.

love ya  all..Deena

  6. Good Afternoon Deena,
    Oh what some beautiful gifts you received in the mail. You are so loved my friend. All I ever get in the mail is bills. LOL. And the flowers your dear Rich brought you are just stunning. They are absolutely beautiful. Those hankies would make something nice on that blank canvas. God will show you what to make. "THANK YOU" for sharing with us your beautiful gifts and flowers. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs, and Lots of Prayers

  7. Deena, you have so much courage that you truly remind me of Amy(foursisters). Keep that loving spirit you have and all will be good. Although, I have never had cancer, I have been through many surgeries and on life support and believe me, prayers are the greatest gifts, besides the lovely things you have recieved. Big Hugs and prayers, Pat

  8. Oh Deena,
    MAIL was my HI-LIGHT TOO!!! I really got to know my mail lady as she knew I had cancer and would bring up the mail everyday right to my door. (we are about a football field from the road and mailbox)
    So happy you are going to see someone this afternoon. EVERYONE needs alittle help now and then. Including ME!!!
    Tell Rich I am JEALOUS of your flowers....I might have to come over and grab them while you are out today....LOL
    Love you bunches, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters, and your Baptist raised Sister in Christ...giggle,giggle)

  9. Dear Deena,Is there somewhere in the world you would like to visit but you've never been to? I know it seems a silly question but, one to think about.

  10. Couldn't get to sleep last night so I finally gave in and decided to stay up and pray for you. Don't worry, I wasn't up all night. Just long enough for the privlege of interceding with Jesus. =) Hope your Tuesday is sweet. Blessings... Polly

  15. Church...When we talked I forgot to say what came to mind yesterday. It was about the 3 men in the fire...and the conversion of the King who watched as they walked around in what was supposed to be the fire that destroyed them. Wasn't there another person also seen in there with them, a fourth person? (Daniel 3) Fire can be a symbol of a refining force. Fire burns away the dross. When the pain is keeping you from comfort and sleep, can it be the refining fire for your soul? Is the cancer that you share as your journey with all of us, can it be the fire that we who are watching you walk around in it, will give testimony to it's refining force for us? I know from having my own pain that was too much for me in the past...ramblings of the esoteric kind can just be too much! "Who cares! I am in pain here!" But still, in some way if what we are having to endure will do some others good, then it becomes easier to bear. I'll stand witness to your pain and with the Grace that you endure it. How you create in the midst of it...it has been a revelation to me. The beauty that you continue to see, that will forever be with me.

  19. I'm here for the first time - I am sorry about your diagnosis, but happy that you have so many good friends - IRL and in blog world! What a blessing.

    I remember having "hankies" like that when I was young. I haven't seen any for a long time. I used to iron my mom's every week.

  32. Good Tuesday evening to you Deena !

    What lovely presents from Dana and Rich and Jan !!! That was so nice - YOU ARE CLEARLY MUCH LOVED, dear Deena !

    Glad you took it easy on Saturday and Sunday except for the walk with your honey man and Hannah the peeing wonderdog :) It must have been pretty to be in the woods with snow on the ground.

    Mhmmm, sounds like Sally is a good cook.

    Hope the Dr. is wise and kind and it was a good visit -- sometimes we all need them...

  33. Love and prayers are raining down on you, my beautiful friend. What lovely treasures you found in the mail and those flowers that Rich brought you are exquisite.

    Those hankies are lovely. I have a few that Grandma gave to me when I was a child and I treasure them. I can hardly wait to see what you create with them. You are so talented.

    Take care, my friend. I continue to pray for you and Rich.

    Love and blessings,
    Mary

  35. I found your link through Susie. My mom had the type of cancer you suffer from. She was able to have a good quality life for several years after her initial diagnosis. I know you have a very difficult road down which to travel. I will add your name to my prayer list.

  36. Oh boy you are loved! I'm so glad you're getting spoiled.

    I was thinking of you today. Talked to God about you. You are getting prayer from this part of Texas, girl!

  37. Hello Deena, Hope you are resting after your yummy supper, and enjoying your beautiful flowers,(I love tulips) Rich did a great job picking them out:)You can put a little soft scent on your hankies and slip one in your coat pocket, peaking out for ever one to see:) Love your sweet dog and fluffy cat:) They are so comforting just being there. {{Soft Hugs}} and lots of Prayers. Mary
