  1. Deena~
    Hello~ I just wanted to leave you a note to let you know that I think you are a beautiful lady inside and out!! God bless you and your family, Lisa in Texas = )

  2. Ms. Deena...
    Well now, Don't you just look Beautiful!!!
    Love Marilyn

  3. You know what, Deena? I used to be a hairstylist, and I never would have guessed in a million years that you were wearing a wig from those photos. You look beautiful!


    PS-I love David Cook too! ;)

  4. Gosh, Deena, you look soooo good! You would NEVER know that was a wig! You go girl! Love, Esther

  5. Deena,
    You look beautiful. Hope you had a good time celebrating your hubby's birthday & enjoying your cute grandson's. You are truly a beautiful family.

  6. I agree, that does not look like a wig. And you look fabulous.

  7. Have a wonderful break! Thanks for the all look great. The other comments are true...your hair looks very natural and you look very good. Your grankids look like they are a lot of fun.
    What a beautiful view from your deck. Enjoy these days. We'll miss your blogs. :)

  8. Deena, how wonderful that it was warm enough to be outside for Rich's birthday, and your time with the boys! You look fantastic! A friend of mine used to say "If you look good, you feel good". I realize this may not be completely true, but maybe "If you look good, you feel a little better" might apply. Hoping you felt as good as you looked this weekend! Praying for you sweet Deena. Glad Spring is coming for you. Love, Pam

  9. You look stunning and healthy. I'll miss you during your break. But, I totally understand. We all need a break.

  13. you look beautiful and healthy, dear friend.....and the weather looks gorgeous too! wishing you felt as great as you look!

    will miss our conversations....but there are times you just need to step back, do what you need to do and take a break....i have even felt that lately.... that is why we blog without obligation.....
    take care sweet deena....and i will be checking on you...just because!
    keeping you in my heart and prayers,

  14. What a beautiful family you have! It looks like you had fun with those grand-boys! I hope you enjoy your blogging break. I think your wig looks so natural and I am so happy to see you looking so strong and healthy.

    Enjoy your break. Get well my friend.

    Love Sharon

  15. This is my first time posting on your blog and I just have to tell you how WONDERFUL you look! I would never know you were going through something so difficult as chemo. You are quite an inspiration!


  16. Delurkering to say
    Oh My Goodness, you all wigged out... so beautiful. Truely, I had to stopped and couldn't believe it was a wig...looks like you a couple a months ago... you sweet lady are beeeeautiful, but then I am sure hubby tells you that all the time.

  17. Good Morning Deena,
    You look very beautiful in your wig and to see you outside is truly a wonderful blessing. I'm glad it was nice enough for you to be outside. The boys are just precious and I know you are one proud Grandma. I think it was so wonderful that it was nice on Rich's Birthday. I'm sure he had a wonderful day. We are to be getting more rain later this evening and going thru Friday morning. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love, Hugs, & Prayers,
    Karen H.

  23. Sweet Deena,

    O.k., this is what I said out loud when I saw that first picture,

    "Oh, my goodness, Lady, you look awesome!"

    What a beautiful color for you and the look on your face is pure peace and serenity!


    Those kidlets are pretty cute too.

    Hope the birthday celebration was all that you hoped for your husband.

  24. Hi sweet Deena,
    I love seeing your beautiful face. You look great! I love your wig, it is so natural looking. Your little grandbabies are adorable. Rich is so sweet to let you put him on your blog. Not every hubby would cooperate. Have a good blogging day off.

    LeAnn :)

  25. Hi Deena,

Puttin me and the rest to shame while your lil bod says it's not feelin well but you're still doin way more than me and us on our best days! So feelin like a slacker, I got outside and cleaned up the yard and decorated my back porch to look spring invitin. It's your fault my place looks so good!
    You are the motivating factor behind so many slackers! Thank you for bein you!

Have a great week Deena and feel well!
