It’s the First Day of Spring! ~ Woo Hoo!

Welcome Spring Equinox



First & foremost I want to say a big THANK YOU JESUS!  We got the results last night of my husband’s cat scan.  Last week he had an xray & it had a shadow… thus the cat scan followed.  Might I add my husband is a heavy smoker unfortunately.  Anyway, let me shorten this my husband DOES NOT have Cancer!  WOO HOO!   WHEW, AND YES I will be on him like a fly on ……………. to quit smoking or I’ll beat him up myself…. well, I’ll at least make his life miserable!  bwahahahaha   THANK YOU JESUS!  To all of you that prayed for him I thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I gave my thanks to our Lord for this huge miracle already!!!  Amen…


 The other day I had a few visitors that I never had at our home before! There were a flock of them at our park across the street, but there were two that lagged behind by our home! Down at the park or by Fox River the flock were feeding.  I would like you to meet two brave geese that decided to come visit me which is only down the street about a block!  Meet my GEESE (there were only two)! Hopefully, next week I shall have some videos for you!

  1. What great news you boh must be so relieved after such a worrying time, thankfully I never smoked but I know how hard it is for most people to give up so I hope he is able to as soon as he can.

    It’s quite cold here in London at the moment and miserable as usual LOL, I like your photos of your visitors did you make them a nice cup of frothy coffee? heheh!

    Have a great week Marie and best wishes to hubby 🙂

  2. I’m so glad your husband doesn’t have lung cancer, Marie! It’s a great day to celebrate life. ♥ Hopefully, he will see the light and quit smoking, now. Happy Spring!

  3. The doctor can help with the quitting smoking. There are things you can take/use to help. I quit way back years ago and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m glad his test came out good.

    Yes today is the first day of spring and it’s raining. Sigh.

    Have a fabulous first day of spring, honey. Love you bunches. ♥

  4. I’m glad your husband is going to be ok. I hope he quits! I heard it’s difficult. People have done it.

    My Father-in-Law has had some pain in his stomach area. It’s not his appendix – he’s had that out. My Mother-in-Law was in MO when he was in AZ. He for some reason wouldn’t go to the doctor/hospital without her. BUT he was in so much pain he was crying. She went back. They are going in tomorrow. I hope he’s ok. He thinks he may have cancer. We shall see. They live off the grid, so life is different with them. We keep trying to get them to move closer to NE.

    Yay it’s spring. I’ve heard more birds out chirping. Outdoor cats that are not ours were fighting outside Isaak’s bedroom window. It seems like spring, but everything around us is flooded. Hard to get my mind off all that. I live in Omaha.

  5. Marie, such a blessed news to read, and such precious visitors around your door step. God bless you all loads. May the spring equinox sprinkle your lives with blessings aplenty.

    Love the vibrant, X’masy look of your blog. So glad X’mas is no longer restricted to that one season.

    Have yourself a blessed season. Love and blessings for you and yours.
