Gifts of Love & a Prayer Request

I received a sweet email from a lady who just received the same 
diagnosis of Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer
She has surgery on 2/7/2008
Please pray for Sandra Dias!!
Life is precious.

My daughter , Nicole lost her job today.  Please pray she 
will find something QUICK as she is a soon to be 
single mom..and has taken care of the her two boys
for a year with no help from her ??spouse??
Life has been SO hard for her.

My sweet friend Mollye  from Louisiana had 
a KING CAKE  shipped to us..I'd never had one before
..celebrating Mardi Gras.

It's praline inside..with cake..and frosting.

The UPS delivery did a number on the decoration
but I put the icing back on ..and had a NICE piece 
YUMMY..thank you Mollye Dear!!

asked her friend Cyndi to send me some 
JoJo Lotion.

Cyndi sent along a kind note..she had made this
lotion for her cousin Jo Jo when she went through

She kindly shared this LINK to

I have received so many cards, I need to get a butt load
of thank you cards out. LOL
I love it!

PS..Check my Whimsy BLOG for the
Vintage VAlentine I received from DOLLY

  5. Good Evening My Dear Deena,
    Sounds like you have been having Christmas all over again. The cake that your friend from Louisiana shipped you sounds and looks so yummy. I've never heard of a Mardis Gras Cake either. I will keep your friend Sandra, and your Daughter, Nichole in my prayers. Sorry she has lost her job, but I know God will show her something better for her. It's sad that she is going to be a single Mom. I've been thru a divorce before, but "THANK GOD" we had no kids. I am fixing to go to bed. I will check back in with you tomorrow. I love the pictures of the Snow you got in your previous post. It is just so beautiful. Take care my friend and have a great evening. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  7. Deena, I will keep your daughter and your friend in my prayers. The snow is beautiful. You are a true Lady for thinking of others when you have this heavy cross to bear, but I know that God will help you carry it when it gets too heavy. Love and Hugs, Pat

  8. Deena,

    I am so sorry that Nichole lost her job. I was a single mother for 17 years and know how hard it is. I will be praying for Nichole, for you and for Sandra.

    I dropped by your Whimsy blog and saw your beautiful Valentine's box. Enjoy your goodies.

    Take care and get lots of rest, my friend. Your strength and courage is amazing.

    Love and blessings,

  9. I will keep your daughter and your fellow warrior woman in my prayers. Will you send me your address please to my email at Toodles...

  10. Deena - my prayers for you, Nicole and Sandra are being heard - I feel better days are ahead for each of you.
    I'm thinking of you and sending love, a whole lotta love!

  11. Good Morning Deena Dear,

    I hope you were able to get a good night of rest in. I read that you were exhausted early ... so I hope you were indeed able to rest soundly and recover some energy.

    I'm so very sorry about Nicole's job. :( I will pray that she finds a suitable replacement quickly so that she can continue to care for her and her boys.

    The King cake looks fantastic!!! It sure sounds yummy. I love praline. :)

    I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.
