It's the little things that matter..........

Okay, I know people are reading this blog since I always get huge e-mail response after I post.....and believe me.....I LOVE IT! Keep it coming........But, would it kill you to leave a comment here once in a while?

FYI, there is a section at the end of each post where you click on comments.....and beleive is easy as pie and really not all that scary. You can even leave an anonymous comment if you'd like. Just a plain little "hi" is a great way to start. Or, "I liked that post", or "cool picture." I can also handle the not so nice comments too.....but like my mama always says, "If you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all."

Here is the part where I am gonna show off a little bit. I have received so many wonderful things from family and friends that I just want to parade it all for everyone to see. Thank you for the cards, the yummy meals and goodies, the phone calls and visits. The gifts, the flowers, and also all the playdates and childcare for the kids. You can't imagine how wonderful it makes me feel to know how much everyone cares.

This is from Olivia. She spent her tooth fairy money to buy me this bracelet from the gift shop at the hospital. Nana was with her and bought the matching daughter bracelet for Olivia - so that we could be twins. Olivia just loved that. As did I.

This lavender calla Lily is from Dana and the sweet little bird is from Barb. They are both such good friends and neighbors.

Dawn brought over these yummy treats. mmmm....mmmmmm.......good!

I received this Get Well Balloon with candy on it from little Blake who lives in my neighborhood. What a sweetie pie!

And here is the picture of the pretty bracelet that little Sofia brought me last week. Notice the poem on the inside lid of the box.

My Aunt Isabelle in Colorado brought me to tears when I received this bookmark inside a card that she sent with the simple yet powerful words on it.. "You Are Loved"

And last (but certainly not least) a huge thank you to my best friend Laura who spoils me rotten, not just now (when I've needed it the most), but all the time over the past 12 years since we began as pen-pals.

She has sent me handstamped cards (practically one a day) for the past week, and lots of care packages for my recovery.

Can you beleive that she made all of those cards from scratch? She is amazing!

Okay, a little break from pictures for now......there are many more to post stay tuned. Thank you all for everything. The smallest act of kindness means so much to me.................................

Hi Lisa,

I just stumbled across your blog in a Google search and just wanted to say congratulations on your cancer free status! I am hoping to very soon get a similar piece of news for my best friend of 25 years, who underwent a 14 hour surgery last Wednesday to remove most of the right side of her tongue. It has all been very scary, so it was good to read someone's good news on the cancer front!

I dabble in knitting and love it but with two boys, there isn't always enough time!
Just wanted to say hello!

You amaze me that you have enough energy to not only take photos of these wonderful gifts but to post them as well. Always thinking of others. Thanks for always including me in your news.

Hey Lisa

I was just thinking of you... and this really has nothing to do with your post... but a good friend of mine just told me she was going to Vegas this weekend to see.... is the suspense killing you... do you know who is playing in Vegas this weekend...

Barry Mantilow

Gee did I spell that right? I am not sure. Anyways, I am sure you know who I mean.

I was laughing because the only person I have heard mention him in the last few years is you!

I hope you are feeling better.

Lisa, Lisa, wonderful the news. Sorry you had to go through this. Gives a whole new perspective and appreciation for everything, even those things we may have never noticed before. Glad your angels were there with you....including your little ones at home.
