My blog is a way for me to share in the wonder of each day. I know there are others like me that due to medical issues have our days numbered and would like to make the most of them in a positive and gifting way for ourselves and for those around us.

Old Man Winter is Feeling Better

Thought for the Day:

This may not be quoted exactly word for word but I have always thought it has such a strong truth I want to share it.

"Character is something that can be measured by what a person does when no one is looking."

Remember the last time you were in someone's house or car and you found another person's money or other items lying in plain sight? What did you do? Walk away? Stuff it in your pocket? or were you possibly tempted? Measure yourself by your thoughts and then how you respond to them. Are you someone you would want hanging around your house or money?

Now for the weather:
Yup, just as I thought. Winter isn't through with us yet, even though we had more than a months repreve.
As you can see, the flowers that proudly raised toward the sun yesterday are now blanketed in a nice layer of the white stuff. We are supposed to get more tomorrow too so hope the plants can bear the cold for awhile and still come out later in the spring.

I am confident that our Colorado weather will continue to keep us guessing as usual so Happy Day ya'll.

NOTE about David: They did not do the surgery last Friday either or take any more tests. The surgeon has planned another PET scan for March 31st and then a preop day on April 3rd and depending on all that, they will probably schedule the surgerly for a week following. It is frustrating to say the least to have this all postponed even again, and I hope this isn't allowing the cancer to spread even further than they last saw. I hope the melanoma isn't progressing as fast as it was before the Chemo sessions since he can't have that done again very soon if ever. As far as I know, surgery is the only hope at this time.

I want to thank you all for your continued support and prayers for my son. I'll update as I find out.

Love ya,
your big, little sis.

Hi Reva,

I'm so sorry you all have been kept waiting with the surgery postponement. How frustrating! I will certainly keep your son in my prayers. Please do keep us posted.

I'm sorry I've been scarce around blogland. Been busy, busy, busy! :-)

Love that quote.

Take care, Reva. Your family is in my prayers.

That quote is a favorite of mine too!

I hope you'll be writing again soon with good news from the doctors. God Bless!

Hi Reva,

Beautiful pictures of the snow.

David, you and the family will remain in my prayers.

Hi Reva!

Sorry to hear that you've been in and out of the hospital again. And that David is still battling cancer...he's just too young! They have come so far in cancer research. We have an excellent cancer center here where I live. I have several friends who have beat it. I will remember you both personally by name in my prayers! I normally just add "and keep all of my blogging friends safe and healthy."

Well, my bath redo is still in the making! LOL I don't work as fast (or as steady) as I did when I was in my 20's. I did finish the painting in the wee hours of the morning last night. Getting ready now to tear up the vinyl floor in there tonight. Then tomorrow I will use an adhesive remover to soften the glue so I can scrape it all up. Then I plan to start laying the ceramic tile next week. Then new baseboards and shoe molding I will put in, then have the plumber come back and put the toilet back in place...and THEN it will done! Maybe in a month or so...ha-ha

Then...I plan to do the same thing to my personal bathroom. After that, I want to strip the wallpaper in my kitchen and paint the walls, and then move on to paint the laundry room and lay ceramic in there. The kitchen floor will be a BIG project so it is going to wait til next winter before I tackle it.

Glad you dropped by! I'll do better and visit you more often, too. I miss seeing Myrtle! I have seen dogs like her breed riding skateboards on TV shows and love it!!!! They just seem to love those skateboards! LOL

Take care, Reva! Hope you and your son both improve very soon. I am thinking of you both and prayers going out for both of you!
