Mom is officially half way through her radiation treatments. She is hanging in there and glad to know that the tiredness and other symptoms that she is having are normal at her stage of treatment. I called her while out with my youngest and I could tell she had more energy that day. She was ready to get out and go to one of our favorite stops. Afterwards, we stopped for a funnel cake (oh how I love those funnel cakes) at a new little spot my husband showed me. My oldest took this picture and enjoyed some chocolate dipped ice cream.
When we got back to mom's house, she had some goodies waiting from the mail delivery that day. She was so excited, because the cards and such had slowed down, but should be picking up now with more wonderful spirits getting her address to send her some strength. Here she is with some of her wonderful cards and gifts.
I think just about every time I talk to Mom, she tells me to please let everyone know how very thankful she is for your kindness and prayers. She told me, "I don't know how I would have made it through this without all of these cards and prayers. Please let them know, I get my strength and courage from them."
Here she is in her "studio" where she has some of her lovelies displayed here and there. She just loves your cards.
This is a gift from my great new friend Jullie from Whimsical Notions. She is a jewel and I am so glad that God blessed me with her.
And another blessing, my good friend Carolyn from Magpie Pixie. I was taking pictures and realized this was from her and yelped, "Mom, you got your gift from Carolyn and you didn't even tell me". Big sigh of relief!
This is a wonderful card from Marie.
All of her goodies from Lisa.
I feel so blessed, and so does Mom. We are so thankful to you all for helping her through this tough time. Hopefully her battle with cancer is almost done. I told Mom that as soon as she is done with her radiation treatments and feeling back to "normal" that we were going away for a weekend. My plan is to go somewhere with lots of shops to visit, a nice B&B we can stay in, and a time to celebrate our friendship and lives.
God bless you all!
