Summer is coming to an end and six pieces of my heart are back in school all day. What does one do when one doesn't have a house full of grandchildren to play with. Well, it's easy for this one -- the next best thing -- create and blog about it. You will remember that awhile ago I showed you two of the 100 year old pieces off my grandmothers porches in Ephraim Utah. I wasn't sure what I should do with them. I knew that they were going to go in grandma's room, but was I going to strip them and refinish all of them, or maybe touch up the paint that was on them to make them look cleaner. THIS IS THE COOL PART! I had a dream! AND, in that dream, I was very young and I was visiting my grandma in Ephraim. We were talking about her home and she told me not to change the history in these pieces because they were all that was left of her home. She did tell me that it would be all right to add a little bling though. SO, I cleaned them with an air gun and gently washed the painted parts. Then I attached little pink Crystal knobs in the holes that were already there. They are a much ruff er and older look then the rest of the room. I'll just have to work hard to bring older things into the room to keep them company.
I was very lucky on my last shopping trip with my friend Mimi Sue. I found hand crocheted, white, runners, cheep, real cheep. I'm going to let you in on a new journey I'm being ask to travel on. A couple of months ago I found a lump on my neck, which I ignored for two months. I finally decided that I needed to have it checked. My doctor wanted me to see an E.N.T. specialist. He called me back last Tuesday with the prognosis. He thinks I have Papillary Cancer. The lump is on a gland next to the Thyroid. I am going into the hospital tomorrow for surgery. There is a machine that will be right there that can tell if it's malignant or benine. That will depend on how much they take out. If it really is this cancer then it's the most common and the easiest to cure.
I have no symptoms other then the lump and I feel just fine. Ya know, it really is true, the older you get, the more you go through, then the more you realize that this to shall pass. I am comforted by knowing, that as Nephi was returning to Jerusalem to seek the records belonging to his people, he says, "And I was led by the Spirit, not knowing beforehand the things which I should do" nevertheless, I went forth. And he was blessed and found that the Lord had made way for him to obtain the records. I will let you know the outcome.
I am a 62 year young mother of 5 children, grandmother of 9 grandchildren and wife and friend to my John for 42 years. I love where I've been and I love where I'm going. I don't know any strangers because your all my friends. I have been touched by many angles in my life and I am grateful to be among so many wonderful people through blogging.
From My Heart to Yours
