Another year--Cancer Free!!

Well, tonight I owe it to myself and to my readers (if there are any left out there!) to write. I am super grateful tonight for the blessings of the Lord upon me--today we went to the doctor, and got the results of my pet scan. For the third time, I have a normal pet scan--which is quite amazing. It has been 2 1/2 years that I have had clean pet scans, and that is a miracle!! My husband and I waited in that doctor's office for nearly an hour, to hear that news...and it has made our day. So I just wanted to share that with whoever still reads this...and I am thankful again that people have kept me in their prayers and in their thoughts...and so I have continued to be blessed. Like others I have asked, "why me", and I know there is no clear answer for that...but I just have to keep on trying to do things to show my gratitude...and to try to give to and serve others.

We have had a very eventful spring--with the graduation of two of our children--our daughter, Katie, and her husband, Cody, both graduated from Utah State University in Logan, Utah...and we are so proud of them. Graduating from college is a huge accomplishment...and no small feat for anyone. We are thankful they stuck it out, and did that. Now Cody is working for the company that he did an internship with, and Katie is awaiting the birth of their first it is an exciting year for them.

Tonight we had the privilege of watching our daughter, Jodie, perform in a play, "The Little Mermaid," with other handicapped adults. These plays, as I've said before, are a total delight to watch and to be part of. There is pure joy on that stage, and you come away with that same joy in your hearts.

Our daughter, Kelsey, has decided to come back to Arizona to live here, and to complete her college education on line. We are looking forward to having her live back here, and know that she has felt the hand of the Lord in this decision. She continues to be such a blessing to us.

My children surprised me in helping their dad give me a surprise party for my birthday this year--it was a "monumental" year, so that was a wonderful surprise! I was surrounded by people and family whom I love--and felt totally loved and cared about.

I will try to be a little more regular in writing in here. I have a dear friend at church who reminds me that I need to write more often!! Hopefully, I can listen to her advice and actually DO better. Have a happy Memorial Day weekend, and may the Lord's blessings be with you.  I will put one picture in of me and two of my daughters and my cute grandson on my birthday.
