The Weekend was Good

Yesterday Rich and I went to lunch, I painted a coat 
on the shutters and then we watched a movie
from 2006..
Beowulf & Grendel

Today I went to see "Martian Child" with John Cusack
it was a wonderful heart warming film..I think I fell in
love with John Cusack today..his roll was GREAT
and the story was TOUCHING.  About a man who
adopts a boy..I can't tell you anymore you need to see it!!

I went two friends who use to work at the bank with me.  One friend, Patty
I hadn't seen for 3?? maybe 4 years..and we use to be so close. 

The other friend, Cindy
has always kept in touch AND she always makes me laugh.  

We went for a light lunch and began asking questions about 
my breast cancer, which I am glad to answer. 
It was so good to be with friends who know you so well.

I received an email with a photo from one of my internet friends today , with her
sweet granddaughters, it was so sweet and I just smiled at my friend and the girls.

Lately  I've reflected on friends, and how some mean so much to you
and yet, they seem to be too busy to take time to call or email. 

Any friend that I loose , I grieve for..and lately I have been
trying to deal with the loss of a group of friends.  
Each friend meant so much .. I pray that God helps me deal with
the loss of a handful of friends..and helps me to let them go. I also
pray I treat everyone with God's love.  

I have been quite melancholy tonight, I just need to rest my mind
and wake up to another day tomorrow.

I'll be going for all my pre surgery tests tomorrow  & the plastic surgeon
visit after that.  I'm praying for God to help me make a decision 
about the breast reconstruction..I don't really feel I want it
but hubby thinks I should for me. I just want to be well as 
soon as I can be & not go through numerous surgeries.

Praying for wisdom to help me deal with my current issues.
I hope tomorrow brings a POSITIVE attitude ..not this
what's the use attitude.

I think I'll need a sleeping aid tonight, my mind isn't at rest.
night ~~ Deena


  1. Deena -

    You are very much on my mind and in my prayers. I hear what you are saying about friends. I think that most are afraid they will do or say something stupid so they freeze and do nothing. They feel inadequate and probably don't know that if they just listen and are there for you it is enough.

    I pray that God will give you a peace that transcends all understanding and that your mind will rest in Him tonight.

    God has laid you on my heart and I am interceding for you several times throughout each day.

  2. Deena,
    I am sending up DOUBLE PRAYERS for you today as you go to the doctors and make decisions concerning your surgery...
    I'm sure your friends that seem to be dropping by the way side are just uncomfortable as to what to say to you.....some people don't do illness very well... especially when they hear the word CANCER
    don't morn over the friends lost... because true friends will be back...
    remember as you go in today... that God is holding your hand (Isaiah 41:13)

  3. Deena,

    My heart just aches for you right now. I can't even begin to imagine how you are processing all of this. There must be so much information coming at you ... so many decisions to make so quickly. I'll be praying for you as you talk to the plastic surgeon ... that God will guide your thoughts and help you make a clear, concise decision.

    I wish I had better words ... I guess I really just don't know what else to say.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    God bless you ... always!

  4. Blessings to you Deena. I am so happy that you do have some good friends and yes, we all should value our friendships. I will pray for you as you make your decision.

    Love Sharon

    prayers are on their way..
