"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band."
~ George Cooper, "October's Party"
Just stopping by to wish you
a beautiful weekend, my friend.
Big Hugs, Rita
My dear Friend, I have a little message I need to
send your way, It maybe small, but it is sincere
Here from my heart today. You knew just what
to do, You knew just what to say, Thank you for
your thoughtfulness ... you brighten up my day.
Start the day off by saying " thank you" first thing,
to whatever higher power you believe in. Be thankful
and grateful for all that you are, for all that you have,
for all that you have experienced. Decide that today
is going to be a great day and make it one.
Remember it is your choice and always is.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment
and take from it everything that you possibly can,
for you may never be able to experience it again.
I am grateful for your kindness, I am glad for all you do,
For being there when needed I send my thanks to you.
I pray God's Fragrant Blessings" for you on every day
In every way, this very day, tomorrow and always.
I know it is early but i wanted to say Happy Birthday before i go to my vacation and may i could not keep in touch with my GG friends, I wish you a great birthday, and all your dreams come true next year, BIG BIG BIG HUG from me to you
Hi, my friend, how are you? Just want to let you know I am just
dropping by today so I can say "Hello" to you today. How sweet
to have such lovely friends How nice to hear, "I am praying for you,
Thank you my friends, for being so dear For showing love and your
fervent prayers. I pray your days are special and your evenings full
of peace. May happiness envelope you and all your worries cease.
Let me just go ahead and update you on my situation.
What actually happend is that I had a stroke or heart attack in March
as I mentioned in "GG" earlier. The blood pressure keeps going up and
down and the heart has an irregular rythm and doctors say this can cause
another stoke at any time which could be fatal. I was on the machines
again on Tuesday and saw for myself the pressure going up from 148/85
to 187/96 in a matter of minutes and I was not doing anything at all.
Next instance it is down to 130/81. It keeps fluctuating all the time and
this is a real concern. The previous attack has caused some damages
to the heart and it cannot be rectified. There are now some abnormalities
to it. I am also not as agile as I was before. I tire easily and cannot seem
to concentrate too long on anything. I will of course do all I can to be here
as long as I am able to. I am trusting God to heal me. I trust with God's
blessings to get over this and be here for a long, long while ... excuse me
if I am not here as often as I was before but hopefully things change for the
better in due time. To believe this is to find the
strength and courage that lies within me. It is time to
pick up the pieces and begin again with hope. I
believe, wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen.
Do not worry about me and look at the positive. I value each and every
friendship here and of course I look forward to all your visits. I do not want
this condition to control me but I do want to continue the same way as
always. Life is meant to be lived happily and not let set-backs affect us,
but to push us to better days ahead.
