One step at a time ~

Hello my friends ~

As most of you know, Mr. Vintage was scheduled for surgery and today was the day ~ Surgery went very well and he is now resting ~

Now we take one step at a time and pray the Lord will do the healing ~
Mr. Vintage will be in the hospital for the next 10-14 days and I will be with him ~ so ~ I may be away for a while ~

I want to thank each and every one of YOU for all of your prayers and well wishes in the days past.  Our family has had a rough road in the last little while, but I have faith that it WILL get better.

I can't tell you enough how much I APPRECIATE all of my blogging friends.  YOU make the world of blogging so special. Your encouragement has washed over me like a big warm blanket.    I wish I could give each and every one of you and great big HUG.  My heart has been so overwhelmed by all of the care and concern that you have expressed.   Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart ~

    Love and prayers, Cindy

  23. Will most certainly keep both of you in prayer, my friend!


  24. The past couple of week have really been a challenge for you. You both are in my prayers.

  25. Here's to a speedy good recovery for your hubby. And here's to you surfing the web lots while you are there- just think you may not be home creating so you can just find inspiration for projects later- pin away dear friend. And I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a dog that has been with you as a best friend is a heart breaking experience.

  26. My heart is with you and my prayers too. Let the healing begin now for you both!

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley
