hard lesson learned and sad news made for a low key Memorial day weekend

Hello Blog Friends,
I haven't been out here in what seems like forever. This would be where the Hard Lesson Learned comes in... My computers hard drive died and did I have a back up???? NO! I lost everything, Pictures, business stuff, all my documents, all my patterns that I have bought, YUP all of it. I am most sad about losing my photos. I never printed pictures, just kept them on my computer and now they are all gone.

The sad news is that my Dad's prostate cancer has come back. We thought the surgery had done the trick but he had blood work last week and the Dr said it has returned. I know he is lucky that it is prostate as that is very curable but it is still hard to go through. Cancer Sucks no matter how you look at it.

Now I have to tell you all that the one bright spot in my week last week was opening the mail box and seeing a package from Lil Raggedy Angie at http://www.lilraggedyangie.blogspot.com/ . She sent me some very nice items including a lil raggedy doll, an americana rug, a candle and some yo yo flowers . This was her *RAGS* to me and it couldn't have come at a better time. I Thank her so much for putting a smile on my face when I really didn't have to much to smile about. so THANK YOU ANGIE

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial weekend, I want to extend a huge thank you to the men and women who serve this country
Blessings to all
