A big smile here!



 Dear friends,

Wish you knew just how much your nice and helpful comments have meant to me since I've been down with my back. I read, and take each one to heart, and appreciate your friendship so much. Thank you.

Yesterday I did call the orthopedic doctor to try and get my appointment moved up. They have nothing available, but promised to call if there is a cancellation. The appointment is March 30th, so at least we are down to less than a week now.

Believe it or not, yesterday was the first day that I really could feel an improvement. Even when Andee called, she said, mom, are you feeling better? Said she could hear it in my voice. Then I got a warning from Shelby to not go outside and do any work just because I was feeling a little better. Not to worry Shelby!!  :)


Before everything decided to go haywire around here, I had plans to make things pretty for Easter. Two baskets sit empty on the front porch table midst the other junk that has collected during my absence. I did hang the cute little bunny towels that Andee sent last year. I love the bunny print!


The mailman left a package at the door addressed to me...from Miss Lynn...


a little get well package filled with all kinds of fun stuff like vintage lace and buttons,  old newspaper ads and instruction sheets from vintage patterns, a really special elephant bracelet made by Lynn, and a pretty night shirt from Andee. There was good smelling lotion and a bag stitched up by Lynn and this very old print of a girl in a swing...

.
should have taken a picture when I first opened the package...cause not everything is shown here. Aren't surprises fun! One day last week, Andee drove down from Virginia just to spend a few hours with me, then drove the three hours back home. What ever would I do without these two sweet daughters, and a sister like Shelby, and special friends like you. 

Okay, I'll hush now. 

Love,
Henny

  7. Everything looks so cheery, and sounds like it's cheered you up, too!
    Nothing like a quick visit to remind you that people are thinking of you.
    Happy Easter. And stay still!

  8. It's so good to hear that you are feeling some better. Any amount of better is certainly good. Surprise gifts are the absolute best. Much nicer than the ones that you expect.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Wednesday you get in to that Dr. and get some real help.

  9. It's wonderful that you're feeling some better. Can you stand up straight yet? That print of the girl in the swing is just beautiful. I hope you're able to enjoy some beautiful spring weather and maybe sit out on the porch for a while and take in the beauty of your lovely yard. We finally got rid of that awful wind that's been around for a couple of days and have a cool, sunny day. How sweet of your girls to visit and send you pretty gifts that make you smile.

    1. Thank you Peg. No, I still cannot stand up straight. I am standing a little straighter, but can't walk when I'm standing straight. ?? I did sit on the porch a little while yesterday.

    1. Hey Janet. You should see me taking pictures. I'm sure it's a pretty sight. I prop on something and hold my little camera with one hand. The outside picture was taken from the porch. I am so tired of not being able to do the things I want to do.
