Greetings Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you doing well.....
I am sad, yet hopeful....
Our friend Arlene was twice this week
supposed to go to Germany for her T-cell
Cancer treatment, but her condition
worsened yet she rallied and seemed
ready to go the 2nd time, and then we
were notified yesterday afternoon she
has a perforated colon and was going to
surgery soon.....about midnight last night
they let us know they didn't do the surgery
cause Dr. decided to give her strong anti-
biotics and fluids to get her in better shape
for the surgery. They texted this morning:
All they have heard is her Septis count is
very high, and her husband said he doubts
they will do the surgery, but hasn't been
told that for sure. Remember they can't
be in the hospital with her, and they
are stationed in the parking lot in an
RV.....We all know beyond a shadow of a
doubt that the Lord can heal her and turn
this whole thing around, and I can think of
so many reasons why it would bring HIM
glory......So we are praying to that end.....
but we also don't know the mind of the
Lord and what His plan is......and at this
point the most important thing is that
she knows Jesus, and that if the Lord
does decide to take her....we will all know
where she is.....but we can hope in the Lords
sovereign plan for her, and hope that our
hopes aligns with His............
Just now got a text that she is going into
surgery soon, she is next on the roster.....
That was quite unexpected! and please
if you feel so led, pray for her.
Update: Sat. Morning. We heard last
night at midnight she had come thru
the surgery and is stable, but haven't
heard anything else yet today. but we
are Praising the Lord for answered
prayer. They are hoping that if she
is recovered enough by 2 weeks that
they can still take her to Germany.
So praying now for a good and
Pictures today are from post
So on with my Thankfuls......
Thankful for Tulips that we saw when we
went to Wally World, I love Tulips....especially
Red ones, and they were the only ones left,
everything else was roses. I find them not only
beautiful but so interesting as they have a mind
of their own and move about a lot. So we
brought some home.
Thankful for a fun time at my Son house.
Lil darling had another bake sale, and
they made these really good vanilla sugar
cookies and chocolate caramel brownies
and then this fresh homemade lemonade,
it was all sooooooo good.
Thankful for a nice relaxing Valentine's Day
just the two of us, and Thankful for an easy
scrumptious dinner and dessert. We had
beef tenderloin, baked potatoes, salad, rolls
and Sparkling red grape juice and for dessert
brownie (compliments of our Son and lil
darling) sundae's. Everything was very
simple....... yet absolutely delicious.
Our easy peasy Valentines table.....
Thankful that we were able to find some cards
that were missing for our shop.....and hubby
found a new program that helped us locate
them for now and future. Still fixing glitches
from getting the new computer. If it wasn't
for hubby I could never do any of this stuff
on the computer.
Thankful that my friend who fell last week was
finally moved out of the covid area, and is in
the hospital rehab now. They moved her over
the weekend, so now her hubby can see her.
Please if you feel so led, pray for her, as the
leg with the broken femur is very weak and
she is having a hard time sitting for a very
long, and putting her weight on it as well.
Thankful that we got our 3 porch rugs cleaned as
well as some of the porch accessories on Monday
Hoping to clean the porch itself tomorrow.
Thankful we get to have another caramel
brownie sundae tonight. (Monday)
Thankful our neighbors are fine and were
just out of town to see their son who is a
new marine. Another neighbor called me
to see if I knew if they were okay or not,
and had to say No, why?? Anyway she
has noticed that all their cars were there
but she hadn't seen any of them in about
4 days, not even their dogs who are out
side a lot. She had called the wife, and
got no response, so I tried calling and
we did get them, they were on the way
home from N.C., guess they must have
rented or borrowed a car. Just happy
they are fine.....Thankful for what a
good neighbor Connie is...she is the
one who brings us veggie soup!
Thankful we got our porch pressure washed
on Tuesday and it looks awesome, trying to
decide if we should seal it again with some
urethane, cause think we have some left
over from the last time we did it.
Thankful we decided to seal the porch
floor and got them sealed on Wednesday.
It looks so nice but the sealant didn't make
it as shiny as the last time, must be because
it was old, but looked the same as last time
we rolled it on. Would put another coat
on but they say not to.
Thankful that the weather was absolutely
perfect for both days that we worked
on the porch.
Thankful for a short but fun time with lil
darling on Thursday and a short trip to
Hobby Lobby and out to dinner at one of our
fav Mexican restaurants. I had a Chicken
taco salad and it was perfect, just the way
I like it.
Well, that's it for Cozy Place this week.
This is a Post Valentines day edition. lol
Thanks for coming by,
Hope you have a warm weekend
especially if you were in the storm
Zones and hope you have power.
Praying for yall too!
Love, Hugs and
