Hi, y'all! If you've been keeping up with me on fb then you know that I'm STILL in Michigan at my mom's. We've been having such a nice visit and I've really been enjoying Sophie (below).
She wanted me to tell you that I talked to Tina today and have an update for you!
Tina sounded good. She did. She sounded good. She's had her first chemo session and has anti-nausea meds so that's not been a problem - praise God! I just hate to throw up, don't you?

She's tired, very lethargic, but when she can raise her head, she likes to sit in the sun. I can picture her in her yard, sunning, and it makes me smile.

I found a "gate" for the tags that are waiting for me at home (prior post if you're wanting to be in the know and you're not yet:) and I'm so excited! I found it at this salvage resale place here in Kalamazoo that I love only it's not a gate. I really had hoped to do a gate, but instead, since I couldn't find one anywhere and the only one I have access to is keeping our goats in the pasture behind our house, I bought this old, chippy white victorian window. Oh, my gosh, it's fabulous!!

I'm going to break out all of the glass and staple on wire that I'll buy and spray pale pink. Then I'm going to attach the tags with the ribbon or fibers, if they have them, by tying them on or attaching them with wee bitty clothespins that i'll stamp to make pretty. IT'S GOING TO BE SO STINKIN' CUTE!!!

I'm very excited to get home and see all y'all's tags and get the "gate" made and delivered. She's going to be so blessed that her socks are just gunna go flyin' off her feet!! Doesn't that just BLESS YOU???

Let's all stop right now and say a prayer for Tina - as you're reading this - lift her up.

I'm going to close this and visit with my sweet sisters and my wonderful mom as I scratch Sophie behind the ears. But, I'll be talkin' to you later. When I get home the end of next week and open all of the tags I want to post them so you will see their wonder.

See you then! And, as always, I simply adore my readers - you're so wonderful!
