I'm so sorry that I never got back to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, but I sure hope you all enjoyed many Blessings throughout the entire Season :) The new chemo drug (Ixempra) has prooven to be horrid, yet our Blessings were still quite plentiful in spite of it all.

Our Dear Friend, Mary, delivered 2 wonderful meals ... the first one being baked ziti, her wonderful homemade carrot cake and this fabulous platter of cookies. With Gene and his infamous "sweet tooth," he was quite the happy camper. Then on Christmas Eve she and her Sister, Rita, delivered a wonderful assortment of goodies ... shrimp salad, spinach dip, sausage and peppers and another tray of sweets ... definitely angels from above :)

My Dear Friend, Barbara, from MA had this beautiful little tree delivered to our doorstep :)

And my Dear Friend, Patricia, from GA had this adorable little tree delivered ......

....... along with these beautiful flowers!!!

And last for this post, but certainly not least, my Dear Friend, Janet, from CA sent these gorgeous roses.

I was soooooooo grateful for all these wonderful Christmas decorations cuz with the exception of the little gold tree below, I plain and simply wasn't up to putting up any of ours. Their love and generosity sure did brighten both my heart and our home and I love them all dearly :) I continue to be amazed at how much one person can be so abundantly blessed.
I'm happy to report that I now only have two more chemo treatments to go; and you can truly believe me when I say "I am literally sitting on pins and needles" waiting for this all to be behind me. We did a 2nd Pet Scan after the first cocktail of drugs and there was lots of improvement ... the lymph nodes didn't light up nor did the 2 nodules in my lungs. Needless to say, we were celebrating down here in Davie and sending oodles of Praises up :)

Thank you so much for your continued love, prayers and support and the Happiest of New Years to you all :)

"For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." (Jeremiah 20:11)
