<P><FONT color=#800080><STRONG><EM>My Dear Friends,</EM></STRONG></FONT></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>I was so looking forward to getting back here on a regular basis, however that was just not meant to be.&nbsp; A few days after posting my last blog, the Saturday after to be exact, my husband had to be hospitalized for Pancratitus and I just brought him home from the hospital this past friday. While he was there, he fell and hurt his knee so they had to do surgery on his knee and then he spent a week in rehab after that, so he's been in the hospital for 3 weeks now, and I've not had one minute to call my own in all this time.&nbsp; </FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>I do want to thank all of you for keeping us in your prayers and for continuing to comment on my poetry even though I've been so scarce.&nbsp; </FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>And to Michael Jordan, your gift was excusite. Not just the books, but what you did and what you wrote to me in them.&nbsp; From the bottom of my heart, through tear laden eyes, I thank you, my dear friend!&nbsp; Those books have helped Dave and I through many hours at the hospital, and he has enjoyed them as much as I have.&nbsp; Though there are some poems that are still too painful for him to read yet.</FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>I want to wish you all the very best this Holiday season has to offer. May you and your loved ones enjoy all the love and happiness this world has to offer.</FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>Sincerely yours,</FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>with Holiday hugs and kisses,</FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><STRONG><EM><FONT color=#800080>Tru</FONT></EM></STRONG></P> <P><IMG src="http://cdn-cf.aol.com/se/clip_art/objcts/flwrs/clips/clip1-wedding2"></P>

    Hi new friend! You don't know me yet but I'm a healing facilitator & licensed. I would like to suggest you consider massage, accupunture, and the best possible food to help your loved one. Accupunture helps alot to reduce pain. Massage, you can do it yourself, brings loving nurture & does speed up healing through increased blood flow. I will pray too for both of you. Taking care of a loved one is alot of work. Light & Love Debbie Guzzi empathic-touch.com

    Oh Trudy I am so sorry to hear about your poor husband! I hope he is on his way to a full recovery. Warmest wishes to you and your family (big hug to your mom) for a beautiful holiday season. All the best of health and happiness in the new year. Miss you and your mom's wonderful poetry! Come back soon! Love & hugs, Shar xoxo

    Awh Trudy that was just to kind of you to say. And I'm so glad that they have brought you two some joy during these troubled times. I know my own health issues have been so hard on my wife and I do pray for you both. The Lord sees us through many trials and I wish to thank you once again for your kind words, God Bless, MJ
