Wednesday October 8th



please visit

I am blessed.

*************









Remember my friends Dee, Sandra , Cora and JoAnna (needing prayers & love)

Thank you for praying for my mom..she's getting therapy and her breathing is so good..she is doing GREAT!! My Uncle Richard (my dear dad's youngest brother), hiswife Jeannie & my aunt Virginia (my dad's 2nd oldest sis I think, in my fuzzy head) are heading down to visit my mom in Floriday. He invited me to go, I wanted too, but I had just learned of the new brain tumors and whole brain radiation..so I could not go. Please know I'm getting more tired and scattered each day..so I may not be able to visit as much..but email me I will surely answer & I love getting messages & email. Makes me smile to see God's love.

  39. Deena, I have often read your blog and boy do you have courage. I just don't think I could take it, but I know with God all things are possible, and God is much bigger than cancer. I can't say I know exactly how you feel, but I have suffered with some ailments and it isn't fun. I just pray you keep that Joy in your heart and that hope that God's will be done. I wILL pray for you. You are an encouragement to all of us.
