Cyndra or Cyndi as I call her is my third daughter, In this picture she is four years old. When she and her sisters were very young, I asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. The oldest wanted to be a teacher, the middle one wanted to be a Mommy and Cyndi said she was going to be the queen. We frequently remind her in a joking way.
This picture of her was taken in one of those twenty-five cent photo booths at out Newberry's store in 1963. I put it in Photo*Shop and had some fun adding posies.
We are praying the surgeries will go smoothly and she will heal quickly. And of course we are also praying that there are no bad cells.
My friend John called today to let me know that his last blood test a week ago showed that his counts are up higher than they have been. He is fighting a second battle of prostate cancer with chemo right now. He thinks his doctor may want to begin a more aggressive dose.
I can't tell you how much your prayers are coveted for these two important people in my life. But I want to thank you so much for them.
On a happy note, John passed all the tests he had to undergo with the police force and his job is once again secure for now. This is an answer to prayer.
My niece Teresa is doing good. Stronger every day and is now able to take care of her family. She is still on the medication to dissolve the blood clots and we are praying that the doctors will know exactly when to wean her off it and that she will never have problems like this again. It scared us all out of our wit's!
Thank you all for being such wonderful friends, for your faithful prayers and the uplifting posts and the sweet comments you leave. It's because of you that I have been blogging for nearly four years.
May our precious Lord bless each of you with a very happy, healthy and peaceful New year.
I love you all!
