Good Morning My Friend.. You really do have a talent when it comes to graphics. Thank you for all the joy you've given. Its greatly appreciated ♡
Anyway.. I saw something you wrote to Pami & let me apologize for reading it. I wasnt intending too, it just happened... ok
First, I just want to let you know your in my thoughts & prayers. Without prayers I wouldn't be here..
🔸️About 12 yrs ago my oncologist gave me a short time 2 live. He told me I only had a few months & that my organs were shutting down. That I had very little time left so, he suggested that I needed 2 say my goodbyes 2 my children, family ect. my moms got 2 talking and decided it was'nt up 2 my doc but rather God. When I say my "mom's" got 2 talkin' i mean it 🔻
(1) my mother (who in just lost this summer)
(2) my adopted mom (a dear friend who basically adopted us into her family when we moved to Missouri 25yrs ago)
(3) my mother-in-law (Donnie's Mom)
(4) my mother-in-law #2 (Hubby's stepmom)
Anyway they decided that i needed to be on their church's prayer lists (No matter what the oncologist said) So they all 4 put me on their church's prayer lists & each began praying. I had started chemo & lost all my hair in the 1st couple if weeks.. but, when my moms suggested i stop the chemo i listened 2 their advice. It was making me terribly ill & at that point their wasn't any hope. So why spend the end so sick? So, I stopped the chemo, I noticed I felt better pretty quickly. I was having a pint of blood taken a week at this point. (I have polycythemia vera (a rare blood cancer than can develop into leukemia) anyway we noticed quickly that i was'nt needing as much blood removed. (Polycythemiavera causes your bone marrow to make to many red blood cells, which thicken the blood causing clots, strokes & heart attacks.. oh joy) anyway.. after a few months I stopped having phlebotomy (pulling a pint a week out. Tho my oncologist couldn't explain what was happening. 🙋‍♀️ I could.. mind you, my doc was a Buddhist so hearing what I had to say was hard 4 him. I explained that my moms had me on several prayer lists and that God had obviously decided it wasn't my time to leave this Earth yet. He began to argue but then just stood there looking at me with the strangest expression. He finally said "polycythemia vera doesnt go into remission! His
Nurse walked up at that moment & handed him my blood work results.. and no. medical science had no say on the matter..God has the final say. He tried again to explain that the blood cancer I have doesnt/wont go into remission. See he had explained I'd be needing dialysis soon as my organs were shutting down. My body was failing he said. I just smiled & said I was in God's hands.. Do you know I I hav'nt been back to see my oncologist. Not once. I hav'nt had one drop of blood removed since then, no dialysis, no further treatment of any kind since 2008. Nothing! I'm doing better than I was the 1st time I rode my scooter into the oncology dept. I know 4 a fact it was'nt medical science that healed me. I'm still disabled but,im alive & from what my regular doctor can tell.. the polycythemia vera is in fact in remission!
So I deffinatly •THANK GOD 4 EACH & EVERY DAY• each one's a gift. So all that said, if it can happen for me, it can happen 4 you. Have faith. I will put you on the prayer list at my church. I will keep young my thoughts & prayers. Also, if you want to talk further, privately.. let me know & I will send you my email addy. You can delete the message right after you save it.okay? Well.. now that I've talked your ear off, I will say goodbye 4 now. Sending Hugs, Shian 💜

Hi, thanks for stopping by you put a smile on my face & those are dearly needed these days. I appreciate you my friend. Thank you 4 making me the lovely spring graphic. I went to go grab the code then remembered I got a new tablet and lost my
LINKS. I'm using a different browser and the bookmarks are now gone. So, would you mind sending me the link to be able to get the code. I will save it into the bookmarks on this tablet. Then I can use the beautiful graphics you've made me long the way. I love them so much! You STAY Safe Now, You Hear? Hugs, Shian 💜

Hi Ari you are so sweet! Thankyou for the beautiful graphic
you left for me on my page, its gorgeous! I always love your
Graphics. I do love Hawaii, we were there in 2014 and had
planned another family vacation there next year but its
not looking very likely because of the Covid19, which is
so sad, but hopefully we can do it the following year maybe.
Love and Hugs Robbie xoxoxo

Hi, Ari! Y.w. for my comments! :) Awe, thanx for saying I will be awesome tagging when I start it too! I can imagine how addicting it is! Not sure I am going to keep making tags but thanx for your hope that you start seeing me make tags!
I am okay, thanx! Trying to hang in there! I hope all is well with you & yours too!
I am still tweaking my page! lol But earlier I was in to dolphins!
That's cool blue is your favorite color! Purple, blue & pink is my favorite color combo. :)
I can see why you'd stick to the non-animated backgrounds! It has hurt my eyes too much too at times & I think it makes your page go slower!
Thanx, have a blessed day/evening as well!

Hugs,
Jessi

P.S. Awe, thanx for such a lovely graphic! It will go perfect with the new bg I just picked out! :D

My Dear Friend,


I know I have been away for some time now due to some
persistent health problems. I just hope and pray that each
day brings with it some improvements. Whatever it is…we
have to be thankful for each new day that God gives us.
The surgery has gone well and now in recovery mode. It is really
nice not to see those words (CRIB) above the hospital bed.
You know “Complete Rest In Bed” can be a difficult time too.

Our daily lives have been greatly disrupted with the devastating
virus called “Covid-19. It is our third week of lockdown and
it is difficult but we managed so far. This flu is not to be taken
lightly. Take the necessary precautions and please wear your
face masks when you go out. People who think they only have a
slight flu like symptom suddenly collapse ..… in the bus, trains,
side-walks,, the super-markets and while waiting in Q to pay for
necessities, while filling gas at the petrol stations etc. This can
be scary. No one wants to help them. Consume more vitamin “C”
and drink more fluids.

Death rate is alarming indeed. It is soaring fast. Just look at
the deaths in Italy, Spain, France, Britain and I bet you it will
see a big number in the USA too. In Malaysia, the figures
are rising.

It is ”Easter” season now. Easter reminds us that Hope
must never be lost for as the dark the road may seem, there
always lies light at the end of it. May all your prayers be fulfilled.
May ou have a wonderful and pleasant .. “EASTER !!.

May you feel the bright, joyful blessings God has to offer you during this Easter.
May the spirit of the Lord fill your home this Easter and all the rest of your days.
Wishing you a very Happy Easter that is filled with plenty of love and happiness.
Take care .. and God Bless You Always.


Jaya Francis
