Hello Readers!  I'm so glad the past week is over.  My husband had surgery to remove a small piece of basal cell cancer from his face on Tuesday.  It seemed like it was going to be a minor procedure but it turned out to be anything but minor. 
After the small bit of basal cell cancer was removed from the tip of his nose I drove him to the hospital where a plastic surgeon was to repair his nose which now had a dime size hole in it.  After three hours of surgery, he had stitches from the top of his head, down his forehead, and all over his nose, plus in back of one of his ears where the doctor took cartilage.  The doctor took skin and blood vessels from his forehead to rebuild his nose.  It is hard to imagine all the work involved to patch this dime size hole in his nose. 
Anyway, as bad as I was feeling for my husband, I kept thinking, at least he isn't sick with a chronic disease.  This is a bad thing but we just got it fixed and he will be as good as new given time to heal his scars.  And for that, I thank God.  Everyday I make time to thank God for all the blessings, gifts, and opportunities He has given me and my family.  Tip for the day:  Limit your time spent in the sun, and count your blessings everyday!
Now on to next week's posts:
Monday:  A book review of Abby Finds Her Calling by Naomi King.  Both Monday's and Tuesday's books by Naomi King are really uplifting and inspiring books.  Please add them to your To Be Read lists!
Tuesday:  A book review of Rosemary Opens Her Heart by Naomi King.
Wednesday:  Today's recipe is Chorizo and Vegetable Cream Soup.  This soup has it all, it is super flavorful and is simple to make.
Thursday:  Learn all about Amish Family Size.

Friday:  A review of Ernest Bontrager's DVD's and Booklet about his life as a former Amish, now a Mennonite.  These DVD's are very interesting!

Have a great week ahead!
