MIRACLES,HEALING AND FAMILY


Saturday Don and I traveled to UCLA Medical Center to visit our cousin's husband who just had extensive surgery.  We are praising the Lord, as the surgery was successful and what was stage 4 cancer on his face is now gone.  Many details about the surgery I won't share, but he is doing and looking great, and the surgeons were beaming at the success of this intricate surgery.  God is so good.

The picture on the left is Fox Theatre Westwood, walking distance from UCLA, and where Hollywood's actors come with all their flair to see the previews of movies. 


After a visit with Howard, his wife Lou (Don's cousin and one of Aunt Trula's daughters) invited us to walk down to Barney's Beanery for lunch.  Howard and Lou's family are so supportive and spend many hours with him at the hospital.  The Nachos were the best appetizers ever.

This morning at church a friend came up to me and said in a stern voice, "Wanda, what's going on?"  To which I replied "What do you mean?"   She smiled and said "I thought something was wrong, you haven't posted since Tuesday!"   I didn't know I had a "blog monitor" HaHa.  Retired life can get real busy.  I assured her I was find, and I would get something posted today!....  So Pat, I'm back!!

  1. So glad a good report was given.

    I tell you, I really don't like it when "friends" read my blog. I feel like this is my little private world of friends. I honestly wish there was a way for my blog can only be seen by other bloggers. I've had to much drama with family over something they took wrong.

    1. Oh Bonnie ~ I don't feel that way at all!! I love that my non blog friends come and share in my life stories. I thought it was hilarious that Pat ask me at church... I was making a joke about a "blog monitor". Anytime someone reads and enjoys my blog, and misses me when I don't post is a blessing.

    2. I'm really sorry you have had drama with your family. If you note...I don't do much personal family except those who are blog friendly. I really try to respect those family members.
