Hospital Bed

Hello everyone, I have been so busy with no time to post on my blog. First of all my husband, Rick, is not able to walk at all anymore, not one step. Doctor came to see him and ordered a hospital bed. You can imagine my work now taking care of him, but I do it with plenty of TLC. He had a stroke 14 years ago this month. He has been paralyzed on his left side since then, however, with a brace on his leg he was able to take some steps. Doctor said that his left knee finally gave out, no more muscle at all so he determined that he needed a hospital bed. Our bedroom now has this hospital bed in it and I had to get a twin bed for myself. You can imagine how busy I have been. Then my daughter, Judy's little dog had a bad fall and cracked her skull, she only weights about 4 or 5 lbs. very tiny, she was taken to emergency immediately and is picking up little by little but she has a very long road ahead, months and months. Not certain the extend of brain damage. Here are a couple of pictures of her, first one how she looked at the vet hospital and second picture taken before the accident. She is a little sweetie.
Wishing everyone a Very Happy Thanksgiving Day.

Lost a Friend to Breast Cancer

This is October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Have you had your mammogram yet? I had a very dear blogging friend, her name was Sandra and she lived in northern California. She told me she had breast cancer a couple of years ago and that she would have to sell her home and down size. Time went by and I didn't hear from her, then she posted a very serene picture on her blog, only a chair with a blanket draped over it and in the background water, perhaps a lake. She told me this would be her home now and nothing else.
Again never heard from her, I would post on her blog with no replies and so did other friends. Well a couple of weeks ago I received an email from another blogger, who I don't know and she told me that she had spoken to a neice of Sandra and that she had passed away. I was so very sad and could not believe what I had just read, think I read it about three times before it sunk in. These roses are for you dear Sandra, this is her picture.
She is resting now in Heaven and at peace with no cancer or pain.
Rest in peace dear friend Sandra, I will never forget you...

Life and Love

With the recent release of that tape of the football player hitting his girlfriend on the elevador I decided to write the following:
Their are so many girls and women taking abuse from men. Also men taking abuse from women, did you know that? Well it’s true. Many men suffer daily and just keep it to themselves..why? Probably because they are embarrassed to bring it out into the open and are hoping the gals will change, but it’s very difficult without help. It is well known that many young teen girls are suffering abuse from teen guys. Why do they take it? If they abuse now they most likely always will unless they get help. If you are one of these girls, please discuss this with a parent and the boys parents and try to help him, he may not realize it but you are only trying to help him and his future. If you are married to a man who abuses you emotionally and physically, please get help. Especially if you have young children, they should not witness any of this. I had a very good friend that was abused from her husband and he always drank. When he was drunk is when things got worse, he would lock her out of the house with the children, call her horrible names and beat her. She would always go back to him, this is one thing I could never understand, but she would say, I love him and think he will change. That day never came. It was a sad life, that’s not living. They stayed together till his death. He died of a liver problem due to drinking. Please love one another.

Life and Love As I was sitting in my patio the other day listening to the birds singing and the sound of water in our fountain, I began thinking back to when I was young and life was so much easier in many ways. We were not as advanced as we are today but the important thing is that we truly enjoyed life in a simpler way than today. A date could be simply a ride to the local ice cream parlor for an ice cream cone or a malt. Let me tell you a little funny story, when my husband, Rick and I were dating we went for that special ice cream cone one day . He went in alone to get the cones, I waited in the car. He must of had in mind what he was going to do that's why he told me to wait in the car, well when he came out, guess what? My cone had approximately fifteen or more scoops of ice cream. I could not believe what I was seeing, I had never seen that many scoops before on one cone but of course loved it and thought, what a sweet thing he had done, he just wanted to make me happy. It was one of the best outings we ever had. After that I always went in with him, didn't want a repeat performance. As a child dad always made mom and I happy, he was funny, danced around the house and always telling jokes to make us laugh. I believe we grew up being very close to our parents and family. We had family get togethers almost every weekend and we enjoyed aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters and of course grandparents. That was the thing to do, family get togethers, either at one of the homes, or at the beach or even a park. We must not forget all the good food, mom and my aunts and grandma were all excellent cooks and the food was always so yummy and smelled delicious. Mom never worked, therefore, I grew up very close to her, we were like best friends, despite the difference in our ages. She was 30 when she gave birth to me and lived till the age of 95. Isn't that wonderful? However, I still miss her so very much. Sometimes wish I could talk to her, confide in her like I always did and she would give me excellent advice, so I just talk to her picture and it helps me cope with whatever my situation is. I was so fortunate to learn so much from my mother, Emily was her name and also from my Godmother, Rita. Mom was a very petite lady measuring only 4ft. 11in. She was very intelligent inspite of having gone to school only to the second grade. She was self taught. Mom had a special style for dressing, I remember her always receiving compliments on her clothes. She loved faux furs, always wore hats and gloves and looked great in her suits. Life doesn't have to be how much money we make or what brand of clothes we wear, or the fancy car we drive. Life is about love for one another, life is about helping other folks that have less than we have. Life is about loving Jesus, children and all animals for without love we have nothing and that would be a very sad world. There are folks in the vast universe of ours that have no one, what they would give for a kind smile, a cup of water when thirsty or a place to rest when tired, so lend a helping hand when ever possible. Life is a blessing and if we are so blessed, why not send blessings on to others.

I love Purple

Hello dear friends, Can't believe it's been so long since I posted. Weather has been so wonderful that I have been outside working in my small garden/patio, I was just telling Rick that it's cleaner outside than inside. LOL...Also have done boutiques, sold on line, been busy on orders from home sales. Here are a few pictures of the patio. This chair was brown and since my colors are purple and turquoise in my patio, of course had to paint it purple.
Some of my flowers. I have many purple/lavender flowers right now.
I just put a lavender bed sheet on this and made the pillows.
Picked up this tablecloth with grapes cause of course it was purple.
May the Lord's blessings be with all those folks in the tornado states that lost their homes and everything they had.

Easter Bunnies

Hello Dear Blogging Friends, Well Spring is here and we are all busy once again in our gardens. I have a couple of vegetables growing but need many more, might be going to the nursery this week to get a few. I looked on Pinterest for some bunnies and choose some cute ones for this post. This is a tiny new born baby bunny, is he adorable or what...
Another young one.
Gorgeous Angora rabbit.
I loved this little pig cuddling up to a friend.
This one seems to say "here's looking at you"
"A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues" Thank you for being my friends dear ones...

Happy Valentine"s Day

Hello to all of my blogger friends... Rick and I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day. Hope all of you celebrate with a romantic dinner. I am planning a romantic brunch for us and can't wait to set it all up. Here is a picture of a small portion of some of my hearts, guess you all know that I collect hearts. Our daughter Judy took this picture of us on our 25th wedding anniversary. Please focus on the pink heart hanging in the center, that was send to me by a very dear friend I have in Grease, she makes beautiful things, we just met here on the blogs. Her name is Marie-Anne and this is her blog I complimented her hearts and she immediately told me she would make me a heart. It has two sides as you can see in the pictures below.
Thank you again Marie-Anne, I just can't thank you enough. I get so many compliments on my heart....I am still having problems with my blog, my side bar is at the bottom.
I wish everyone peace and love.

Hello everyone,
This poem was sent to me from a dear friend and I just felt like passing it along.
Another year has passed...
And we're all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems much colder.

There was a time not long ago
When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
About 'Living in the Past'

We used to go to weddings,
Football games and lunches.
Now we go to funeral homes
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches
And wile the night away.

We used to go out dining,
And couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.

We used to often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore bottoms
From riding in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little wine.
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening news.

That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up...
Before you're too darn old!

Happy New Year

Hello and Happy New Year 2014 to all my dear blogging friends...
Can you believe another year gone? I pray this year brings all of us good health, love and lots of happiness.
This is Bailey, she belongs to our daughter Judy, #1, (first daughter born)
We spend Christmas Day at her lovely home, we were so lucky to also have our two granddaughters Kelly and Kimmie home for the holidays. Kelly lives up north in Monterey and Kimmie lives in New York.
It was a wonderful day for all of us.

Many Blessings of the New Year...
