Wonderful Friends ~ Fabulous Family ~ Healing Nicely ~ Will be glad to get back to regular post ~!

So, this post is to Thank All of You who have been by our sides
over the past couple weeks. Friends/Family alike ~ we would
be mighty lonely without the company, caring, compassion of all you great folks.
Now, in order to list them all ~ it would take this page and another ~ so lets suffice
to say that there are many of you ~ Mr.& Mrs. Hag appreciate everything
you have done for us. Whether cards ~ emails ~ prayers ~ meals ~ dessert ~ calls
anything you have done hasn't gone unnoticed ~
Never knew we had so many true friends ~ that gives the both of us a new appreciation
so "Thank You".
"Without a friend the world is a wilderness."

If you ever experience a health challenge you will understand that in this
one life we all get ~ nothing is more important that your "health & happiness".
I get a great email each day from this organization ~ with articles, quotes and
inspiration. Try it ~ might just bring you some comfort too ~ everyday not just in
"challenge" times.
"An ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness" -Elbert Hubbard

I also get a "Chicken Soup for the Soul" email every day. We can all use
that ~ sharing with you ~ my friends what have been a great help to
us. Not just these few weeks ~ but always.
"In today's hectic world, it is very easy to get stressed and worked up.
This can cause a number of health problems."

Clayton, has been our "muscle" ~ now you know, I'm strong but on days like today
when you get a new TV cause the not so old one died ~ our patient needs that
for our "rest & relaxation" ~ its nice to have a "strong Son" around to lift big stuff.
Thanks.... Man~!
Hope ~ Lindsey is feeling better today too, she's been sick while we've been to the hospital/and now home recovering...

Never mistake knowledge for wisdom.
One helps you make a living, the other helps you make a life.
-Sandra Carey

Nannie, I wish that each of you could have a "Nannie" ~ she makes
everything okay. We sometimes call her "Dr. Donna" since she retired
from the medical field. She is nurturing and strong ~ actually the strongest little
lady we know. She is our "rock". In these times ~ as well as all times.
Thank you, Mom for being such a constant for us.

"Without hearts it is no home."
"Whom will he help that does not help his mother."
"Who has gold can choose his son-in-law."

Now, we have a 4 legged child ~ who has been help too.
If you have a pet, you know they always know when something is different.
He has been so "easy" with his steps ~ so "loving", even more than normal.
Woof, Sebastian... Love You Little One

"A dog is the only thing on earth that will love you more than you love yourself."
~ Josh Billings
"If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans" ~ James Herriot

Friends...Dear Friends ~ have brought food ~ our refrigerator is packed.
We have "Honey Baked Ham's Turkey Breast"....yum.
No, not just food... meals ~ dessert ~ bread ~ salads.
Gosh, everything has been wonderful and we appreciate not having to cook~ so very much.
Gives us, more healing time. Rest.
"Where there are friends there are riches." ~unknown

Dear Friends that brought a meal of Meatloaf/Potatoes and for us, Asparagus.
With Pies too ~and corn muffins.
See, I couldn't use our real pictures ~ cause we dug in fast. Good Really Good Food.
"Cooking is like love... It should be entered into with abandon or not at all."
~Harriet Van Horne
Dear Friend... Brought Pie ~ Apple/Cinnamon Pie.
Hope she took the calories out.
Gosh, this is "great eatin"....
"When a friend asks there is no tomorrow." ~unknown

Dear Friends... That brought "wedge salad" ~ my all time favorite ~
yes, I did share with my "patient" but that was hard to share.
"True friendship is imperishable." ~unknown

Dear Friends ~ that brought veggies, sides ~ we had so many to choose from.
"The ornament of the house is the friends who fre­quent it." ~unknown

Dear Friends ~ brought bread. Bread homemade & other breads.

"The greatest blessing is a true friend."

What in the world would we do without friends, really really good friends. The ~hags are grateful for every friend. Family ~ ours is the greatest, we hope yours is too. These are gifts that we will never again take for granted. I've even received emails, comments from "bloggers" that I haven't had the privilege to meet yet ~ Thank you. For your part in our recovery. What a blessing to have each and every one of you.

This week, hopefully back to normal some what if not entirely. Back to the "village" tomorrow morning... with the promise of some "fresh pictures" ~ this new week will bring more "blessings" ~ we wish you all the best in the ones you are given.

gracious & thankful... ~one vintage hag
