A Message to My Friends

To all my friends. Thank you for your wonderful comments you left me this fall
. Please bear with me as I share a story with you all.

On Sunday, September 20, 2015, I tried to participate in a Cancer Walk-a-thon for Jillian's Journey, the little 11 year old girl who had brain cancer. (She went to be with Jesus early in November.) I took a nasty fall and broke my right ankle in four places. After I had surgery, I went to a local nursing home/rehab center for therapy. I was released from that facility on Dec. 22.  I spent a total of eight weeks flat on my back with my leg up on a wedge, except for my trip to  the therapy gym, my only social activity. Once I could begin to put weight on my foot, things progressed very well.

My husband was great, bringing me snacks each day. Our son was good about calling me on our designated days to talk. I had some very faithful visitors.

I have 3000 emails to wade through to clear my inbox. Any suggestions?

Merry Christmas to you and yours.


  1. 3000 emails! I can't imagine. Maybe scroll through and delete junk mail first...

  2. Wow! I did not know this! I just knew that you were taking some time off from writing for a while. I am truly sorry to hear how you have suffered. Praying that the coming days will be days of joy as you are more fully recovered and able to regain your strength and enjoy being out and about again. May the Lord give you peace and comfort. Don't try to do too much too fast. Send out one email to as many people as you can telling them about your situation, and explain that you may not get to your emails for awhile. If they sent anything really important, they will get back with you. Praying that you will not stress over that. Sometimes I think email is more trouble than good, but we are stuck with it. May God give you the ability to prioritize and deal with only what is truly important. One day at a time. God will help you. Praying. and Welcome back!

  3. Thank you, Pam. for your understanding and your thoughtful suggestions.

  4. Oh my, I did not know this. I have not been very active on my English blogs... so, I missed it. I am glad to hear you have faithful companions by your side :)
    3000 emails... well 80% is probably spam.... do 100 a day, it will take you a month and make sure to unsubscribe most of them :)

    1. Thank you, Marja, for the advice. I am monitoring my inbox very carefully since I have been back. God is good.

    2. Oh wow you really went through it. I have a stoved finger on my writing hand right now and that is hard enough. Heal soon sister.

    3. Thank you Becky: Today,(Monday) I will have Occupational Therapy. The young lady will be here this afternoon. I haven't started Physical Therapy yet. A man came to evaluate me on Friday.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
