a new day

Is it Thursday already?



Yesterday I made an unscheduled visit out to see my parents for a few days.  My dad is suffering from bladder cancer and was not doing well.

What a difference a day makes...


Praise God, he is having a much better day today.  He seems to be regaining his strength and is his old smart alek self again.  Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.  I know the road ahead will not be easy but I am so thankful for today and however more today's we have with him.

I'll be back tomorrow to share some adorable measuring spoons and what nots...

xo, Patty
