Heart To Heart......

Hello Hello Hello!! It feels so good to be here once again! Boy, I sure did miss all of you!! But I must say I so enjoyed my little break. It was indeed time well spent!! I have so much to share with you I do not know where to start. Do you remember my new year post I mentioned my desire for writing? I have decided to go forward with that dream and will be taking some classes soon! I am so excited....but I have not been in class since I graduated college in 2000! I am sure my study skills are a little rusty, but I am so looking forward to getting back in the swing of things! :o) I have also been knitting up a storm, and I promise some pictures for you soon! Speaking of pictures....I was one of the winners of Judy's give-away at Fabric Art & Crafts early January. Oh my goodness I could not believe my eyes when I saw all the beautiful things Judy sent my way. Her package arrived beautifully packaged, and boy oh boy what lovely things from vintage fabric lace, papers, buttons, paper lace, homemade paper, cardstock, pretty stickers, envelopes with matching blank cards ready for card making all tucked in a beautiful folder.....You must see this, and I promise pictures are on the way! :o)

My Dear Mother is preparing for her Radiation Therapy which starts in a few weeks. I so enjoy our time when we get together she always manages to make me laugh even though I know sometimes it is not easy for her. Continue to keep my Sweet Mom in your prayers, and I must say she is doing quite well and we all believe the best is yet to come!

I will have a pretty full plate these coming months and will not be on the computer as often as I would like. Time to hit the books!! :o) Oh wow, I cannot believe I will soon be a student again! Well, guess I will go now and catch up on all of my precious friends in blogland!! :o) Have a fabulous week.......

The purpose of education is to provide
everyone with the opportunity
to learn how best
he or she may serve
the world.

Good to see that you are back and that your lovely posts will again be available. Welcome back. I trust that God will give your mother the needed strength for the treatments she is about to undergo. One of my younger sisters had breast cancer surger in Jan. 06 and then had a cycle of chemotherapy treatments. So I understand your family's concerns.

Beautiful rose that makes me long for summer especially when I look out my window and see about 9-inches of snow on the ground.

Have a great weekend!

Welcome back, Beverly! You were missed, that's for sure. From the moment you mentioned your planned time with your Honey, it was clear again that you are one quality woman, with your priorities straight, with one really good marriage! Congrats. :-) Am SO glad that you are taking steps to pursue your writing further! You've got the gift, Beverly, and IMHO, it's only going to get better, as more treasures from within you get released onto the page for all to enjoy. You go, girl! Have a wonderful day. Hugs. :-)

Judy said...

Hi Beverly,
Congratulations on pursuing your dreams!!! You have been missed! Thank you for mentioning my blog!!
I already know that you are a good writer, but now you will be a great one!
I am praying for your mother. The radiation will be like an insurance policy to prevent a recurrence. I've been through it and did well. May your Mom have an easy time and keep her sense of humor!
Big hugs,
Judy
