Lemonade & Poppies

Drinking lemonade 
from an old fruit jar
while snacking on old fashioned cookies.

Only thing better than that . . .
is doing it while relaxing on the porch :)

This is a short post.

I do want to ask you to please 
pray for my Steve.

Thursday, he gets his first CT Scan
since starting chemo.

After our great lab reports last week
we are hoping and praying for
a great report from this scan.

 We won't get the results for another week,
and I hope that I'll have good news 
to put in my next post.

Have a sweet week
Keep Smiling!

"We have so much to be grateful for"

Good News!

We are grateful beyond words
Want to thank everyone of you
that have put us in your prayers.

Monday's doctor visit was amazing,
our doctor almost cried 
when she told us the good news.

Steve's latest lab work showed
amazing results.
We will know more after his next 
CT scan on the 16th.

Chemo is helping . . .
The Lord is blessing us . . .
and it looks like we can count on 
more time together.

For that we are grateful!
Please keep praying.
Our hearts are touched by the 
love we feel knowing we have 
so much support. 

Those of you that have been 
following me for years,
know that I always close my posts with,
"Keep Smiling!" 

I haven't been doing that lately,
because it's been very hard to smile.

But our good news has made us 
stop looking at an ending
and start enjoying the life 
we have left together . . .
It's time to start enjoying
and living!


The news even brought with it new
energy, energy that my sweet Steve 
hasn't had since back in Autumn.

He sat out by the fire-pit and cooked
these cowboy beans for our dinner
last night :)

We are feeling to very blessed . . .
smiling from ear to ear . . .
and praising the Lord for the gift
of more time.

Thank you again;
There is much power in prayer.

Keep Smiling, We Are!

Sitting On The Porch

Enjoying the front porch
after a nice workout in the garden.

All of these photos are either
of the front porch
or taken from the porch.

See the coffee cup.
It's was my favorite
until I went to make tea the other day
and I heard a pop . . .
So, now it holds some hen and chickens
on the porch railing.

I still love it!

Our little buddy, Butchy. 

The weather has been nice,
but we are still getting frost
in the mornings.  

 See the little birds on the ground.
They are eating the seeds 
from last year's sunflowers.

Again; before I say goodbye,
I want to thank all of you that are
praying for my Steve. 

We appreciate each and every prayer
and consider all of you 
blessings in our lives.

God Bless You.
Connie :)
