I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for
that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.

(If anything in this post sounds odd, please refer back to the post just before this one for clarification.)
Thank you so much for all the encouragements, prayers, Scriptures, and expressions of love and caring. You simply bowled me over. Many of you have been there done that. I am finding it over and over again everywhere I go.
When I visited my hairdresser to order my new hair 👱 (Yes, I did consider becoming a blonde or a redhead), she shared that she is going through some health issues. Her receptionist shared that she is a five-year breast cancer survivor.
I hesitate to share this next bit only because I don't want you to think that I need care packages, yet because I have always shared happy mail, I continue, though really, I have all a gal could want in your visits and comments.
Today, when I arrived home from physical therapy, I found a happy package on my doorstep.
So cute...so intriguing...so Debby!
It was a box within a box...
filled with a chemo cap, comfort socks, tea...
(Emoji lovers unite!)
and Burt's Bees lip balm, hand cream, soap and Walker's Shortbread Cookies!
When I was first diagnosed, I reached out to two blogging friends. One was Debby who was and is going through her own health issues. I knew that she would understand my situation perfectly. And I was right! She has blessed me with her humor, her faith, and her friendship. Thank you, Debby! Everyone should have a friend like you. (You can find her at My Favorite Things.)
Debby, I am ashamed to say it, but I am so sick of those bandages. Must get them back on asap, but oh they are driving me nuts!
And it is a short trip after this dude has been bugging me for weeks.
Acckkkk! At least, he's not a vulture trying to get in...
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. Found! One sweet wee book among the tissue paper...
