Well, my Friends, I am so happy to be able to tell you, that everything was gotten and I am cancer free. I like to call it "Tender Mercies". I could feel a book with story after story of "Tender Mercies" I have received. My life is not over, there is more that I need to do. I pray with all my heart that I will recognize when I am needed.

I want to share with you two more of those "Tender Mercies" that have shown me the gift of healing. Last Thursday I started rubbing my incision with neosporin (the miracle drug), the only drug I ever use. Well, the next morning I didn't feel that sharp cut anymore.

The morning I woke up with a very happy thought. I thought of some decorating things to do in my bedroom. That's a great sign, don't ya think. My mind had been blank for a week. Let me show you what I've done.

Ecru Hand Crocheted Table Cloth. Made in the 1930's by my Great Grandmother, Sylvia Bradley Homer Christensen Larsen, (what a mouth full). She made it for her granddaughter Marian Homer. Before Marian Died, she gave it to my father (her cousin) to give to his daughter (me). Marian didn't have any children. I just received it a couple of years ago, and I placed it in my chest. I also received some lace doilies that I've layed on a couple of lampshades.

This is the pedistal my dad build me. It's right next to me with a plum crystel vauce field with wonderful plum flower, sitting on a hand crocheted doiley of my great grandmother.

Excuse me, is that me that's fuzzy, or is that my camera? You are looking at a special thank you card that I bought at Just a bed of Roses. I am so very thankful!

This is not a very good picture. I bought a small crystal lamp with a white lamp shade. I drapped it with a very beautiful doiley from grandma. On the table I've also lade a silk dark brown scarf I bought in Ecuador from a man that let me sit awhile on his chair.

A special hand written note was attached to the delicate table cloth. My father received it in 1990 and he pinned a note to it.

I'm looking for a delicate white or plum or both, teapot. If you find one, think of me, and let me know.
