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"

  2. I know you are thinking positive thoughts, as you sit on your porch, sipping lemonade and munch on a biscuit or two. Sending you both cyber hugs across the sea from New Zealand.
