My Mother

I absolutely cannot believe it is September already! This summer has been crazy busy and I have so much catching up to do here, so many things to share.  But my life hasn't miraculously slowed down (I wish) so the updates will have to be short and sweet as I can fit them in between everything else.

I've made a list and hope to tackle one subject a day.  No promises.

First up.  I just got back from Texas where I was visiting my mother prior to her surgery.  She's had a re-occurrence of her very rare form of cancer called soft tissue sarcoma.  This time it has taken up residence in the right lobe of her liver.  She has a few more tests yet and then a surgery date will be set to remove that half of her liver.  Those of you who are prayer warriors, please add her to your prayer list.  Her name is Sandy.  I know she will appreciate it!

While I was in Texas we had a quick meet-up with Melissa before she took off on her own adventure. So here we are - Sandy, Sarah, Cheri, and Melissa at the Frisco Mercantile enjoying an hour of artsy inspiration!

Til next time!

Keeping your mom in my prayers. It's always fun to see photos of you and Melissa together, especially since I've met both of you.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum. I'll be thinking about you both.

Such lovely smiles in that meet up photo it's clear that a good time was had by all

Thinking of you and your mum - I hope the surgery is successful.

So glad you are back---seems like it's been awhile! Prayers to your mom. Looking forward to your next post! And me here with all the time in the world and nothing to write about!

Thank you for posting this, and thank you to anyone who adds me to their prayer list. I firmly believe in the power of prayer, I've seen it work before. I beat this cancer in 2012, I plan to do it again in 2016! Cheri, Sarah and I had a great time during their visit....lots of fun memories made. A lovely way to preface the nasty surgery I have to look forward to soon. Hope to see more frequent posts here from Cheri, but I know she is swamped, and now back to a "full house" with all three girls living at home again. Life really does mess with you from time to time, doesn't it?

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom - and I hope the surgery will have a positive result. This is certainly not easy for you. I'm thinking of you.

It was wonderful to spend time with you & Sandy & Sarah! I'll definitely be keeping Sandy in my prayers.
