A Happy Sunday Story To Share

Hello everyone, I want to share a happy story with all of you. My white blood count is very low and my onco nurse told me to stay away from crowds, and friends, even family members until it comes back up. This has been very hard not to see my children and grandchildren, especially when the grandchildren ask on the phone,"grandma when are we going to get to see you again". Sunday afternoon, I was on the computer when my husband called me into the living room. There in my front yard stood all my children and grandchildren holding handmade signs. The signs read, we miss your kiss, & hurry up and get well, we love you, and each sign the grandchildren had made had drawings and a picture of them on it. I cried of course, happy tears. I went out on the porch and we all talked and then I made each one a bag of candy. Then we did "air hugs and blew kisses" They drove away waving goodbye without coming in the house. That was hard to not invite them in but this time will pass soon. I am so grateful for my family and I am also grateful for all of you here on this site.I think I have spoken with most all of you and I love you each and everyone. Your Friend, Nancys
