Gorgeous Artwork in the Form of RAKS!

 RAKS from Linda Hoffman over at Scrappin' Bears Studio . . .
 RAKS from Susan Kesselman over at Nimble Fingers . . .
 RAKS from Kathy Eddy over at Inkin' It Up and Sandi Malloy - ATT yahoo group . . .
 RAK from Louise Granlund over at Kard Krazy . . .
 RAKS from Angela Pryor over at A Day in the Life of a Tomboy . . . A business card was enclosed with a phone number so I decided to put a voice to Angela's blog and photo and picked up the telephone and called her.  I am so glad I did!  *smiles*
 And look at this gorgeous book that Ibis Arrastia from Smiles by Ibis created and sent to me!  Click on each photo to get a closer look at each page . . .
 
 
RAKS all the way from Belgium that Inge Bekaert from Pinke Pinke created for me . . . 


Inge suggested that I write a word, a quote, something that happened that day . . . something that made me smile, gave me joy.  No big things - just small things in life that make life worth living.  


Wow, Inge's RAK couldn't have come at a better time!  It was raining the day I received this little journal, and I remember being thankful for the gift of sight, sound and smell.  So that was my 1st entry in my new mini journal - *smiles*
 This is a photo of the back side of the little journal . . .
Inside pages of the journal . . .
And here's another RAK from a cancer survivor - Gail from Oklahoma (diagnosed in 2008).  Gail is a member of the ATT yahoo group of which I am also a member.  A beautiful breast cancer ribbon/winged magnet was also included, but I failed to get a photo of it because it's already on one of my magnetic boards . . .
I had always admired the hibiscus that my good friend Linda Bucci has in her garden.  So on one of the days that she came to pick me up to take me to a doctor appointment, she brought me a Cosmic Dancer Hibiscus of my own . . .
Oooooh, and how could I forget to include the gift of Sharis Strawberries that were sent to me from two of my instructor's at "the day job"! . . .  I guess they don't realize that I'm still healing and can't do much exercising to get these delights off my hips!  LOL
I can't say it enough.  Thank you Thank you Thank you for the outpouring of love in the way of RAKS, continued thoughts and prayers, rides to the doctor and the store and an occasional lunch or dinner out on the town *smiles*.

Tomorrow (Thursday) I see the "Quarterback" - my Oncologist.  One of my cousins is driving from Altadena to take me and play secretary while the Quarterback and I talk over the next play in this came of Cancer.  I will let you know how everything goes.

Luv ya!  x o x o  Sherry

Sherry, although I haven't sent a card, or a gift, or done a favor to help, you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Funny how I feel so connected to someone I have never met, but...life is full of surprises. God bless you for all you have done to share your life, for isn't that the meaning of it all?

By the way, Eric Benet is playing - again - and he may just be my new Stevie - I love his sound....
