How do you spell LOVE?

I am constantly amazed that people still remember me at this point since I've been out of commission for so long and yet they do. I don't think anyone can imagine how much I have appreciated the kind words, thoughts and prayer from so many people. Ann had told me recently that she wanted to put flowers on my deck again. She called today to say she and Biscuit were on their way and I was surprised that Katarina and her little KennaKat arrived at the same time. When they got here, the sun was shining and there was a little breeze. Biscuit and KennaKat started exploring and found lots of things inside to do.
They are both very sweet little girls and got along very well. Not long after they got started planting, the clouds rolled in and it started raining. I couldn't believe they were still out there planting away. At one point, Ann realized I didn't have enough containers and I heard her on the phone with Keith who evidently went and got some and brought them over and then went back to work. Thank you Keith!!!
Ann also provided several dragonfly ornaments and two large citronella candles. There is also a bird bath on the back corner of the deck. BigD and I were on the porch when they were working in the rain and BigD said, that's probably the only time they will be watered and Ann said - "it had better NOT be"!
There are also little mushrooms in some of the plants.

Thank goodness the sun came back out before they had to leave and pick up their little boys from school. I absolutely LOVE my deck again!!! This is making me start getting excited about Memorial Day weekend! By the time that rolls around, all the plants will have grown and filled their pots with beautiful flowers. I am also very excited that Bentley will be coming home with Page that weekend! Now the deck will be a pretty place for them to sit when we cook out there. Hope it isn't super hot this year.
These two people are another way I spell LOVE! My sister and her dear hubby who stay in touch with me every few days and who I know pray for me every single day. When my sister was still working and was on her way to work in the early morning hours, her hubby would read her the Daily Text and then say a prayer and Rose said he always prayed for Jehovah to bless my pioneering. I was so touched by that. Rose is seven years older than me and I used to baby sit for them a lot. She taught me a lot of wonderful things as I was growing up and I will always appreciate how she and Wayne have always loved me and my children.
This is another kind of LOVE. I have known this young man most of his life and watched him grow to be a wonderful and responsible person. They got married this year and you can just see how happy they are. I really appreciated that he brought her by for me to meet since I missed their wedding and most of the past five plus months.
And then we have this kind of LOVE. This older sister loves my son very much and has automatically transferred that to his daughter. Page loves her too and was excited to see her when she stopped by to see me several months ago. So I guess you could say that when the girls gave me the wonderful gift of flowers on the deck, it made my "love" cup runneth over. Thank you so much Ann and Katarina.


  1. You are so very welcome! It was all Ann's idea, I was only there to help. We love you so much!

  2. Love the beautiful deck. I look forward to sitting out there with you.
