Prayers Answered

Hello sweet friends ...
I am so pleased to be able to tell you that my Aunt is on the mend ... finally they have been able to get on top of the infection that nearly took her away from me. 
Her fight is back and she is over the worst ... 
I got to spend a good few hours with her yesterday ... the people here have been so very kind ... Someone took me in to the hospital yesterday afternoon ... another person collected me a few hours later ... and then in the evening I was so lucky to be able to go again for another hour. 
Just being able to sit and hold hands has been a tonic to both of us ... I thank you all so much for your prayers and for being there in my time of need ... reading your comments has been such a comfort.

There are going to be some changes made when she gets home ... Here there are so many people willing and wanting to offer assistance ... and I have made her realise that she needs to let them help ... 
At nearly 86 I think she deserves to sit back a little and enjoy whatever time God has allowed for her here on this earth ... It's only a year since she lost her husband and 30 years go they lost both of their daughters ... All her life she has been the carer ... now it's time to allow others to care ...

The other good thing is that my son was able to send me the photos of some tags I made before I left ...


My lovely friend Jan sent me a box of goodies a while back and there were some sweet little envelopes which I thought would be lovely to decorate and pop tags into ...


The tags were printed on my computer and cut using a Sizzix die ... the paper is by PaperMania 


I had hoped that My husband and my brother may have travelled over to see me this weekend ... Seems it's not to be ... Still the cat and I are good friends and taking care of each other ... 

Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for everything

I am so happy to hear that things have turned around. I have been praying for just these words. We had a slight crisis with one of the cats. My daughter took care of it and Bugsy is on the mend again. It is a calm Saturday here, with me trying to figure out how much I can get done today! So glad your aunt has so many wonderful people to help you as well as her. Wishing you a wonderful day, and more wonderful time with your aunt. I got your gift in the mail yesterday. thank you for thinking of me when you have so much on your plate. Hugs and well wishes.

Have I ever loved the title of a post... That's such good news! So glad your aunt is improving.
Your tags are pretty - and such a perfect fit for the gorgeous little bags!

Ross, so glad your aunt is doing so much better, - it sounds as if she had a very eventful life, to use one child is terrible, but to lose two is unimaginable, - no wonder the two of you are so close!

Your tags by the way are stunning, love that red and white together!

I am so glad to hear that your aunt is on the mend, and the great help she will be able to get from people around her area, that is comforting.
Hope you take care of yourself while you are there, and the cat too! : )

So very happy for you Ros, that your aunt is doing fine. Yes, you're right, at her age she deserves to be cherished and pampered for. But she will appreciate all that you do for her, too. You're such a thoughtful and caring person. Gorgeous tags, so beautifully decorated! Ira x
