I really don't know

how I am supposed to say Thank you.  To say that my husband and I are shocked beyond words for the generosity of blogging friends around the world is an understatement.

Friday morning Marty, Meri, and Laura came by my home and brought the most amazing gift to us.  Disneyland for my family.  This has been a dream of mine since my journey began.  I long to see Disneyland through the eyes of my grandchildren.

Why and how so many of you gave unselfishly, during this time when all of us are looking for every extra penny!  And Laura, giving up her Etsy money that I know she could use for her family.  Miss Marty keeping it all straight when she has family coming and going, and all her various activities.  I am just moved beyond words.

We will have to wait a bit before we take our trip.  We are kinda thinking of March.  I would not be able to do it now.

I am getting better.  At least I can read some blogs now and know what I read!  Thank you for the prayers.  I KNOW that it is the prayer of many that brought me through this trial. (My doctors have kind of told me that it is 5 days for every hospitalized day before I feel more like myself!  Guess I have a ways to go!)

This picture is taken the day my angels came by.  I really didn't want a picture.  But I finally swallowed my pride and said ok.  As you can see, I lost my hair.  This is reality....Hate it, but at least I am standing!


I also can't wait to show you the gorgeous wreath that Meri brought me.  I missed the craft day at her home...bummer.....but the wreath is gorgeous!

Eeeeeek!!! Disneyland it is, then!!! So so happy for you dear friend, and it looks so funny to see Marti in sandals when we're running the heat and bundling up here in VA.

Oh such wonderful comments from so many great friends. Such a great Blessing for all of us. Hugs, Marty

NanaDiana said...

You look beautiful to me, Ceekay...hair or no hair. You have an amazing spirit and even when you are "down" you lift us up just by being here. One day at a time. As far as remembering things...chemo brain is very real- it takes memory away of certain things but I will tell you that it DOES return. It just takes time....and you have that...you have time!! Blessings xo Diana

Debbie Booth said...

Ceekay, I can't think of anyone on earth who deserves this more than you do. You have been one brave soldier and a cheerful one in the face of it all. You are an inspiration to all of us out here in blogland, and I'm trhilled that you are able to go in March! Knowing you are up and out of that hospital is just the best news ever. And hair? It's highly overrated. At least you don't have to fiddle with it, you know? It will come back fuller than ever and might even be curly. I know someone who lost hers, and when it came back in she had the cutest curly do and never had to have another permananet which thrilled her no end. Hair or not, you are beautiful beyond words and to see you standing there between those girls is just THRILLING. It's a Christmas present to all of us who love you.

XO,

Sheila

Your smile says it all girl. Can't wait to see the pictures of you and your family at Disney land when you get to go. What a blessing that will be. Sending all of my prayers your way. I just recently started posting again and would love for you to read it when you are better. The last comment I received was from you a year ago. Merry Christmas Ceekay and many more. Humble Abode
