  15. Deena,

    Chemo hangovers are certainly no fun. Though I have not experienced it myself, I have seen others go through it.

    Love all your swap goodies.

    My joys for today:
    Bird songs
    Seeing the grandsons
    Visiting the farm.
    Having you for my friend.

    Love you and continue to pray for you and your family.

  21. Hello dear Deena
    I hope you are feeling stronger by the time you read this. You're in my prayers. Make sure you pamper yourself tomorrow. You deserve it.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  22. Deena- You are looking good- the journal is AWESOME- so pretty...Spring is here in Iowa finally- tulips up all over make my heart happy- Hang in there- I'll be back at work ont he house this week. Anita

  23. Dear Deena,

    I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling up to par after your latest chemo. I hope you feel better soon.

    What great treasures you have!!! I love all of it. I really like the fun journal with the pom poms on it. I write in a journal like that almost every day, it is my prayer journal and I am going to have to doll one up! Mine is the boring old black and white composition books. Not any more!!!

    "Praise the Lord, o my soul, and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases". Psalm 103:2,3

    Have a great day today sweetie.

    Love Sharon

  24. What fun treasures! I love the book Heather did--it's lovely. I've always loved scented geraniums, also--so many people don't know what they are when I mention them! Take good care of yourself. Hugs and prayers, Jann
