Our Lady of Fatima

Our Lady will be busy hearing more from me than ever before--Today my doc gave me the results of an ultrasound I had done 2 wks ago. I was breathing easier actually, before I saw him; since I knew if it had found cancer he would have called me before today's appt. No cancer, thank God! But I need a hysterectomy. Damn. I had just told my mother a few weeks ago, that I would never have one of those. And now, it is medically necessary. An enlarged uterus and big fibroid tumors growing everywhere in there. I was in shock as he explained it to me, I suddenly felt cold and dearly wished I had brought my sweater, more to have something to wrap tightly around me than to warm me. But I trust Dr A., he has been my doc since he delivered my son 21 yrs ago; then again 7 yrs ago, saving my life w/an emergency c-section a month early (saved my daughter too). It will be next month sometime...need to increase prayers!

one of my weaknesses is Korean mink blankets. I have yet to find one like this one, so thick and soft and heavy, of the highest quality.

Our Lady of Fatima

Today, as I transferred the pictures I took of Our Lady from my camera into the computer, I could smell frankincense around me. I thought I was imagining things...I sniffed my; I looked around me, no, I was at work as usual and no one was near. We had not been inside a church that had had incense burning. And, I am no saint --far from it! But I took it as a good sign, perhaps Our Lady was pleased with the pictures I took and posted of her. I know she gave me great happiness seeing her!

everytime I take pictures of Our Lady, or Catholic related subjects, it makes me happy, as if that is part of my calling-

hooked on Farmville

AND then, my coworker showed me how to play this game, which I had disdained is addictive. I like putting together a farm and moving stuff around. Perhaps it is a sign of a place to come, I wouldn't mind farming or having my own ranch!
