Counting Blessings and Saying Prayers

I think this is the longest I have ever gone without posting....been a little preoccupied. My mother had a full hysterectomy on Wednesday. Of course we were nervous waiting on her surgeon to come out and let us know how it went. The first word I heard was cancer, and for just a second my heart fell to my feet. Now we knew there was a chance of this...that was the reason for the surgery. He explained that there was cancer in the uterus, but it had not gone outside and therefore he got it all and no reason for any radiation. Thank you sweet Lord! She did great! My mother is 74 years old and had not been in the hospital since she had me almost 43 years ago. She got up yesterday, took a shower and was walking down the hallways. She is going home today.
As for saying prayers....TS Hannah is on her way here! I pray for my families and everyone Else's safety. I have made my run to the the grocery store, for bread, milk, monkey food (that what my husband calls canned food and munchies). I don't know about the rest of you, but here in North Carolina when we even hear that bad weather is coming.....we got to go to the store...we are gonna eat!

Here is my version of PeaPickers Primitives Ding Bats

And here are some Jack-o-jingle bells I just got in, I just love 'em!


And I have received some awards that I have not acknowledged from

Merrie and Gina

and from Justina

Thank you ladies, it means alot to me that you choose me!
I know alot of you have already received these....if not and you are on my blog roll.. you have an excellent blog and you all make me smile, so please pick it up!

I have been working my hiney off, in the store, rearranging and cleaning. I will post some new pics soon. Right now I am gonna get a shower, make supper, bake some turtle brownies and settle down with some stitchery(and catch up on some blog reading) and wait on the storm.
Everyone stay safe!

    I am sorry to say I don't think bittersweet grows in NC. I have never ever seen it - I think it is too warm. Besides, the kudzu would take it over!!

I'm going back to check out more of it. Don't feel bad about burning your pumpkin, I've overcooked a few things, too.

  8. Beth, what wonderful news about your mother. I am glad to hear that she is doing well and that they were able to get all the cancer. What a blessing that is.

    Y'all try to stay dry down y'alls way. It is pouring here this morning. Dont know if I will do much of anything except sew today.

    Have a great weekend

  9. Thank goodness your mom is fine and up and around already, what a strong woman she must be!
