As some of you know, Doris was to have surgery tomorrow in Tampa, Florida..Doris' surgery is to be done with a laser...

It has been postponed until Thursday..

My husband is to have spinal surgery..We don't have  a date yet..His is conventional surgery..The doctor says if all goes well he will go home the same day and can go back to work in six weeks..We will have to wait and see on that..

We have had much going on in our lives and my time on soup is not as much and more irregular than before...

Life is always full of change..

I have been giving thought to another contest..I  may wait until after my husband's surgery and life settle a little..

I hope that all of you have been having an enjoyable summer and the cold of winter is way in the past..

I pray that God will bless and keep each one of you..

Sara

I was unaware of Doris' situation...I was wondering why she had been so quiet lately. My prayers go out to you, Doris and your husband... I will be looking forward to Doris' poems again and your next contest too...God bless you and yours - Tim

I've been gone a month while I stayed with my 80 year old father who had cancer surgery. I'm glad to be back... I truly hope every thing goes well for all involved. My prayers are with you during this time of need. May God hold you all in the palm of his hand and deliver you and yours safely back to us. Love and best wishes... Carol
