    Knowing that God does all things well...whether it seems like it to us always or not...

    My Family...both at home and from church...

    Falling, crunchy, aromatic leaves...

    The opportunity to meet really awesome people through blogging...

  5. Wow, what a handsome family you have. :) Your Grandsons are adorable. Need to push those kids into giving you a "Pink" one, hee hee !! :) You are very Blessed my friend. Gosh, I missed the open house, I thought it was for the whole month and I could post whenever. :( That's what I get for being a Big Goof !! lol !!

  6. I love seeing the pictures of all your family! I had seen your precious grandsons before. What a handsome crowd. Your life is filled with blessings for sure. Now, get well. That's an order!

    My joys are:
    *watching you get well
    *my family too!
    *sitting with my parents at church
    *fall weather
    *blogger friends
    *knowing God is in control
    and the election is almost over ( I am sick of politics!)

  7. Deena,

    A wonderful family and what handsome grandsons you have. I'm so glad you shared with us. The one of Rich, you, Nicole and BFF is beautiful.

    My joys for today:

    The sunshine on the autumn leave.

    Taking the grandsons for lunch and then back to school.

    Meeko and his antics. He's always frisky when the weather cools.

    The sights, sounds and fragrances of autumn.

    You, my dear friend and hearing from you in email.

    Love and blessings. Prayers continue.

  10. Dear Deena's friends...all of you...Deena is very aware of the lapses in her memory and also she knows that she may make spelling errors or sentence errors. Deena has chosen to not rely on computer/people support to "correct" anything...she is being truly Deena and as we asked, being her total true self. All of us who have known/gotten to know Deena, know what a perfectionist she has been in all things creative, visually...in every manner of her life. This has been not only extremely difficult for her to "let go and let God" but to trust that each of us will honor her courage and the beauty she is still creating with her "Story". So...thank you for loving her and thank you Deena for trusting all of us with your true authentic unrevised self. You're pure magic..still and always.

  11. What a beautiful family. I think you need a grand daughter!

  12. Morning Deena, me again. Here are my joys for today: Women who share their hearts through blogging, weather that's finally cool enough to cook gumbo, no need to mow the lawn this week, the beautiful colors of fall, and my faith that lets me know all this beauty is only the beginning!

  13. Oh Deena, Your family is just beautiful! Thank you for sharing all the lovely pictures with us :)

    Happy Thursday to you!


  14. Thank you Deena for sharing your family pictures with us. You have a lovely family and your grandkids are sweet. Blessings!

  15. What a beautiful family and support system you have including your beautiful dog and kitty. Thanks for sharing.
    You, Jill, and all the other women who are dealing with this are in my prayers always.
    Last but not least-the Autumn Journal. I'm so honored that I was chosen to receive it. I'm just sorry we couldn't all win. Have a beautiful day. God bless

  16. Such a beautiful and loving family you have Deena. I can only imagine the wonderful support you must have. One thing I have found is that children accept us for who we are...even when they see us bald, lol. You are truly blessed.
    Off for my chemo today....
    Jill. :)
