Joys and Thank You's

Hi Friends,

Just stopping by with a few Joys
And a couple Thank You's

Seem to almost always involve my 3 K's
Since it is spring break
I got to enjoy all 3 of them
I think this little red mustang
Has gotten more use this spring
Than it has in the 9 years I've owned it


The girls decided Mr. Sam
Needed to take a ride with them

 I believe they all had a great time
Going round and round and round the yard

And My little Miss K-Bel
Just Adores him 

Another Joy this week
Has been a bit of fun and painting

No, I haven't been working on my mural this week
I was working on a 16x24 canvas instead

My BFF sent me a great poem for my birthday
It has an ocean theme and was a sheet of vinyl words
I had no idea at first how I was going to incorporate it in my office
But I got an idea and went to work

The above is the finished product
I painted an subtle ocean theme as a back ground
Then I carefully placed all of the words on the dry canvas
I am in Love with my own work

There is a hysterical back story to this poem
And maybe someday I'll share it

Now for a couple of Thank You's

Thank you to those who have been praying for me
I have been quite ill for two weeks
We still aren't sure what has been going on with me
No lab results as of this hour but
Lots of joint pain, fever, edema in my hands and feet,
As well as a petechiae rash
I'm getting better day by day
At this point we are thinking 3 options
Viral Process
Medication Reaction
Kidney Disease

So, I'm waiting for results 
And believing to be completely well very soon

Another thank you goes out to
She had a giveaway a few weeks ago
And I Won

She sent me the sweetest Easter table runner
And a darling little burlap chick

As well as a cute bunny banner

And this great Chick Tea Towel

Because I love her work so much
I stopped by her Etsy Shop
And picked up these 2 absolutely adorable
Burlap Pillows

I just love them
Thank you Judy for all the the wonderful goodies
You are a gifted Lady

I'm not sure how much I'll be able to blog
Over the next week
So I'm sending Blessings to All

Go out and Find JOY in something today
It will make you Smile 


  1. Dear Cindy, I wish you would have emailed me-I could have been praying for your health! Now I will be. One of the verses I claimed before and after my surgery is from Jeremiah: "I will restore your health and heal your wounds", I'm claiming this for you right now.
    Sending healing hugs to you today.

  2. Dear Cindy, I am so sorry to hear that you have been dealing with such health issues. I to have had kidney problems this winter with fever and all kinds of pain. It was taken a lot of antibiotics to get it under control and then dealing with the side effects of the drugs was another problem. I sure hope that the doctors can find out how to help you soon. You will be in my prayers. Have a beautiful day my friend. Hugs, Jo

  3. Dear, dear Cindy ~ I will continue to pray for you, that you will feel better with each new day. God's blessings on you.

    Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

  4. Dear Cindy - so sorry you have been so sick! Praying for you and your doctors and for them to find a diagnosis soon and a solution. Hope you enjoy your Easter goodies and thanks for the shout out on your pillows. Really appreciate it.

    Take care.


  5. Hi Cindy, I am so sorry you have been feeling ill and I will keep you in my prayers going forward. Love your win from sweet Judy. How special to enjoy time with the grands and I love the mustang!! Your painting inspired from your birthday card is stunning. You are so creative and talented. What a beautiful background you painted.
    Love the words.
    Have a great weekend and get well wishes come your way.
    Be Blessed, Hugs, CM

  6. You have such a wonderful positive attitude toward life and it's contagious! I'm so sorry to hear that you've been so sick without a confirmed diagnosis yet. Hopefully, you'll be on the right track for recovery soon! I love the artwork you made. That is such a great quote too. I will have to think of that next time I'm trying to overcome an obstacle.

  7. Oh my goodness, Cindy, I thought you had started feeling so much better. I'm so sorry to hear you are still not well. You are absolutely in my prayers.

    Very nice gifts that you received! So glad you had fun with the K's.

  8. Love the burlap pillows....let's make some!!

  9. Cindy, I'm so sorry to hear you've been sick. I'm so behind. I hope you're feeling better by now. I love the poem. I love what it means. You did a great job.. you should love your own work :)
    I'm catching up today. I'll see what you've been up to.


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
