Remembering and Happy 4th to All!!!!!


Hello fellow bloggers! This time last year I was in Nebraska at
Cliff's getting ready for Blogstock08. It was so much fun and great to meet so many bloggers. It was definitely the highlight of the year for me! Now I have those good memories.


I learned this week that a friend of mine, who is such a dear sweet lady, has pancreatic cancer. She is in her 60's but looked much younger. She always ate healthy foods and exercised, and she embraced life to the fullest. She was always so cheerful and a delight to be around. She just found out in May and has been getting the chemo treatments, but now is in a nursing home getting something to hopefully build up her strength so she can come home again. I hope and pray that she does get to come home and have some quality of life for as long as possible. I know with that kind of cancer the prognosis is not a good one at all. My heart just goes out to her.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and happy 4th!! Do you recall learning this in school? I do!!
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Hi Rachel,

We just got home from spending the day at the cabin, and are going back for fireworks a little later.

I am sorry about your friend as well. I will pray that she gains her strength back and can go home soon. God bless her!

Take care!

Hugs,

Renie

I'm so sorry to read about your friend Rachel....That is a terrible cancer...My Cousin-In-Law just died of it about 8 weeks ago....He had been diagnosed the ebd of December. And he too took very good care of himself.
It seems to me we hear of many more people these days having Pancreatic Cancer---One wonders what it is that has caused this to happen.
Prayers for your friend, my dear Rachel.

Hope your 4th was a lovely one, my dear.

It is always hard to see a friend suffer. Sometimes diseases are even harder on the loved ones who can do nothing to "make things better." Sometimes all we have are our prayers.
Good church sign, and so true.
