Well, as I anticipated, not a lot of Monopoly stitching done yesterday - basically just finished up Community Chest and most of the outlining on Tennessee.
BUT my missed stitching time was for a great cause - a family get together to celebrate my dad's 74th birthday, but also to see my niece Stacey, her husband Paul, and their four kids (Dominique - aka Neeka, Christopher - aka Bubba, Alexis - aka Lexie, and Anthony - aka Boomer). Anthony is the little guy that is fighting kidney cancer and WINNING!!! He's halfway thru his 18 week chemo regimen, and it's going wonderfully. They think they got all the cancer during the surgery in June (a 7 1/2 pound tumor in a 3 year old - well, he turned 3 a couple of days after the surgery), but they're doing chemo just to make sure. To look at him, you'd never know there was anything wrong, which is wonderful! Just goes to show there are miracles!
And in today's mail I got the Lizzie Kate pattern that I ordered to make just for them - it says "Work Hard, Pray Long, and Trust God". Couldn't get more appropriate than that for them!!!
Thanks for looking at my blog!
