A Haven for Vee

Friday, December 18, 2009


So much to tell and so much water under the bridge, over the dam, wherever-the-heck- it-went, but I did want to stop in to say thank you so very much for your sweet emails and your lovely comments. I do hope to come back and play, but it must wait for better timing.

The good news is that my children gave me a lovely early Christmas gift — a computer! In a true O'Henry style twist, the Internet connection was gone. It's back for now so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Hope that you are all enjoying the merriest of times. I can not wait to visit you all! Soon. Very.


  1. Oh, how GOOD to finally hear from you! You have been missed, friend! Praying you'll have a joyous and blessed Christmas this year!

    Much love,


  2. Just so nice to see you are still there somewhere in blogdom. It isn't the same without you. I've thought about you several times as I copied your apron over and over again that you so wonderfully sent me.
    Do take care of yourself dear Vee. . .
    Praying that you will feel the nearness of Jesus this Christmas season.

  3. Yes so glad to hear from you. I can't believe it has been that long since we heard from you. May Jesus be with you and family.

  4. Vee....

    How wonderful that you will soon be back around. You are missed.

    Merry Christmas!

  5. I was thinking about you today Vee, and I've been praying for you and your family.
    I haven't wanted to intrude on your privacy in case you had decided to leave blogging behind forever, but since I now know it was "only" a computer issue keeping you away I'll can start e-mailing again...and happily so!

    May your Christmas be peaceful and may you and your family have many blessings in the new year.

    Hugs, Pat

  6. You have been missed and I am glad to know all is well. I hope your family is doing well also. Have a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of New Years!

  8. I cheered when I noticed there was news from your corner...at long last! You have been missed...dear friend. Have a blessed Christmas...and we look forward to hearing more from you in due time.

  9. Early Christmas gift from children -- a computer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Oh Dear One, I am so happy!!!!!!!!!

    Glad you got my snail mail. :-)

    Take your time with the Net. Pick and choose when you have the time. Do not jump right into making a "job' of the Net, in any form, right away. You are busy, even though I still don't know details.

    Remember to take care of your self first, if only with your use of the Net.

    There! Everything is back to normal = 'Auntie' is lecturing! >,-))))))))))))

    Happy Christmas!
    Gentle hugs,
    Aunt Amelia

    Christmas love & hugs, Sherry

  32. Dec. 20 - Soooo happy to see that you made a Christmas Header! You're having fun with your computer! Yesssss...

    And I had to mention you again, in my own blog, today. :-)))) I'm so excited that you are back on line.

    I know you still don't have lots of time to blog. I know we can't expect to see you blogging daily. But all that really counts is, that you can have computer fun again, when you do have time to do so.

    Christmas hugs,
    'Aunt Amelia'

  33. Great to hear from you sweet Vee! Love the new header. Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas.

  34. Hello Vee,

    Thanks for commenting on my blog - it's so true that these are trying times. Outside stresses come in and affect relationships and homes and even individual capabilities. I'm trying to learn to let go and trust God more. Easy to say, hard to do.

    I hope that you will have a joy-filled Christmas because of Christ's presence in your life.


  35. Dear Vee, It is so good to see you here! You have been missed ♥ I hope things are going better for you. I pray that your mother, and grandmother, and John are doing well. I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope your New Year is just filled with ton's and ton's of blessings.

  36. Welcome back! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  37. Merry Christmas Vee to you and your lovely family. Miss you around here....

    Thanks for that great ocean video at the bottom. Just what I needed.
