Dear Friends,   Hope you had a wonderful Easter Weekend.  Easter is one of my all-time favorite days.  Jesus Christ is RISEN.   Alleluia!   This year,  George and I drove to Nashville to have Easter Dinner with his daughter, Kelly.  

This was a combination Easter and Birthday Dinner (since we didn't get to see Kelly on George's actual birthday, 3/9).   Kelly fixed an amazing dinner  (Lamb Chops,  Home-made AuGratin Potatoes,  and Fruit).  Delicious!

But the awesome part was the special dessert,  a Carrot "Bunny" Cake,  that Kelly made...  Carrot Cake is George's favorite cake ---so having it as part of a Bunny Cake was AWESOME.... Can you see the beaming smile on his face in the picture above?

Don't you just love George's Bunny Cake!!!!!!! Kelly did a great job,  didn't she?

I love this picture of George and his beautiful daughter, Kelly.  We had a fabulous visit and a great Easter.

Great Granddaughter,  Vivian Lee--age 3

Great Granddaughter Veronica Mae,  Age 1  (will be two in May)

I just HAD to include another Easter Joy!!!!!   Seeing Easter Pictures of my two beautiful Great Granddaughters  makes me so HAPPY.....   Aren't they just adorable?


WELL my friends,  on another note,  I need your thoughts and prayers, as I continue to struggle with a possible problem with my heart.... I had an Echocardiogram on March 1st --and then a Cardiac MRI on March 30..... Still no results --as of now, April 5th.... The waiting and lack of communication has been the hardest part.   I do have a lot of FAITH --and know that God will take care of me.  AND--since I'm basically a positive person (at least I TRY to be--most of the time--ha),  I am assuming that nothing major is wrong, since IF there was a real problem,  they would have done something much more quickly.   SO--I'll continue to wait!!!!!    Thanks for your prayers.  I need them!
