Some Love From My Blog Friends

Good Afternoon My Friends,

I have really been struggling with some health issues, I don't like to talk about them too much, but I feel like I talk about them too much.  Anyway, I had to go into the hospital on Monday for some test.  The test didn't go well.  I was feeling sad and blue, down and depressed.  I really need to start taking better care of myself and get more rest, but I am not the kind of person that can just lie around.  I always have to be doing something.  I got home and my husband brought me the mail.  I opened it and found this BEAUTIFUL album from one of my best blog gal pals Rhonda from  Scrap HappensOh my gosh!  I just cried and cried.  My poor husband!  He kept trying to comfort me and could not understand that my tears are just tears of happiness because I suddenly just felt so surrounded with love.  I could feel the love just pouring out of each of the pages that she made.  I knew the time that she had taken to make this album and all of the love she had poured into it.  I am blessed.  

 Isn't this gorgeous?

 I love the scarecrow and the turkeys!  Rhonda is so talented!

Look at that squirrel with the nuts!  So cute!

Even the back page is beautiful!  Rhonda, where did you get that stamp with your name?  I need one of those!

While I am on the subject of bloggy friends, I also what to show you the card my friend Cissy from   The Cissy and Fran Show sent me.

Thank you so much my friends!  You make my world go round!
