Deena at Can I Be Pretty in Pink? Deena is fighting breast cancer and her husband came down with the flu. I got a very short note from Deena tonight and it seems she is down with the virus. She said she will be okay, but I'm very concerned. I had this last week and am still trying to gain back my energy and the cough lingers.
Cythia at Walking On needs urgent prayer for her and her family. Her 14 year-old daughter has been missing since March 10th. Please drop by Cynthia's blog and leave her an uplifting note. She has a photo of her daughter on her blog and would like us to distribute it.

Today is Thankful Thursday and I have a lot to be thankful for.1. For my hubby being safe while driving at night through the storms that hit this area last weekend. The roads were treacherous.
2. For Michelle's infection being taken care of by health care professionals. The incision is beginning to heal, though she is still having some pain. I am thankful she didn't have to return to hospital and is getting around nicely now.
3. For the fact that Griffyn, my great-nephew was given a clean bill of health by the doctor. Griffyn is only 81/2 months old and he caught this virus that was going around. I'm thankful that his immune system was strong enough to fight it off in a couple of days.
4. That I am feeling much better. My energy hasn't returned fully yet, but I am feeling so much better than I was last week.
5. For special blogging friends that mean so much to me.
There are so many more things for me to be thankful for and I am. This is my list for this week. I am truly blessed.
I am very excited. Lisa at An Apron a Day was having a giveaway for a vintage chicken scratch embroidered apron. Now I am a lover of vintage aprons because they remind me of Grandma. She had drawers full of aprons and a clean one always hung on a peg near the pantry door. If company came unexpectedly, she would quickly take off her dirty apron and grab the one off the peg and put it on while heading to the door. She had gingham aprons, embroidered aprons, cotton print floral aprons and even organdy aprons that she only wore for very special occasions.
Anyway, back on track here... I entered Lisa's giveaway and she notified me today that I had won the vintage apron. I am tickled to death. Thank you, Lisa.
If you enjoy seeing vintage aprons, be sure to stop by Lisa's. Tuesday she featured a souvenir apron. Remember those? I used to have one of Niagara Falls. I don't know where it ever got to, but wish I had it today.
Well, that is about all the news from here. It was a busy day for me today and I got just about everything done that I was supposed to. There is one small errand left that I have to do tomorrow. I even got a chance to do a random act of kindness while I was out and about. Not only did it brighten up the lady's day, but made me feel good too. Be sure and do a random act of kindness whenever the chance arises. Even a smile goes a long way to brighten up someone's day. ~Blessings, Mary~
