LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

I'm Here !!!


I am Here !! :)

Ok, my few weeks turned into 6 months, :( , Sorry. I cant believe it has been that long. I have a Pile of emails and letters to go through, of which I TRULY am so thankful for all of the love and support. I am feeling much better, finally. I had one thing after another happen, which I wont even begin to go into. But I am up and running again :) I have SO much catching up to do, so just know, you ALL mean the world to me and I think of each of you that comment here and pray for you :) My MS test came back Negative, Thank You Jesus !!!! :) I have an auto immune disease that creates lots of internal swelling. Hence the legs hurting, burning, falling, stumbling, shaking and dropping things . I also have Chronic Costochondritis ( rib swelling ) I AM on a new medication that has helped tremendously :) So, Life is good :) I MISSED you all :) !!!!!!!

I will leave you with some pretties to look at. :) I forgot to sign up for Pink Saturday, so here is some Pink today for YOU :)



Hugs ,

Rhea :)

Welcome back! You have been missed alot. Your pink pretties are lovely. Can I come over for a hot chocolate in those cups? They look so inviting. I am glad the meds are helping and continue to pray for your speedy recovery as we need your sweet posts to encourage us. Blessings,
Sharon

I'm sorry to hear you were ill. I've been visiting your blog often because it is just so beautiful. Thanks for sharing these lovely pink floral pretties with us :o)
God bless your health.

So happy you are back and thank God you don't have MS! That is great news. Sure hope your new meds work wonders for you.

Nothing as bad as being in pain every day. I fully understand that. I have had two surgeries on my neck and every day I'm in pain. People don't get it and after awhile you just stop talking about it because no one wants to hear about it or you feel like they think you are faking.

It can be hard and at times even a lonely feeling. But, there are others out there that understand!

Hugs,
Joanne

Your pink goodies are lovely. I especially love your little dessert stands with the glass cloches! ADORABLE!!!

More important you have found out the source of the problem and are getting treatment! Yes,thank heavens it wasn't MS. Glad to hear the medication is helping and here's hoping you continue to feel better!

Oh Rhea, it's so good to have you back!!

I knew you were having a rough time health wise and I can totally understand why you needed to take a blogging break, but it sure was a long 6 month without you and you were missed terribly. So happy to hear that you are feeling better and I will pray that things will continue to go well for you.

I'm already looking forward to seeing new posts from you again.

Take care.

When I saw you on my Google Reader as posting today I smiled and grinned and did flip flops, sugar!!! I am sooooo happy to see you are getting better. I was thinking of calling you this past week but things got busy(!) around the ol' homestead. Sorry I didn't now because I could have shared in your joy of feeling better. Keep going, chickee, and you'll be fine. Love you!!!!

Miss Rhea, I am SO GLAD to have you back! You may not remember me, but I have ordered several things from you and loved every one of them. Praise God you don't have MS!
Praise Him for allowing you to blog again. We give Him all the Glory!Reminds me of a stanza from "Blessed Assurance"-
Perfect submission,
All is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting,
Looking above,
Filled with His goodness,
Lost in His love.
God bless you, Miss Rhea.

Hi Miss Rhea,

What beautiful things! I came across your site while looking for faux cupcakes and found a photo of three of yours on a Google Image search.

Do you sell your faux cupcakes. I don't see any on your site? I'd love information on them!

Cherie said...

Well my goodness it is about time that you are up and running my sweet Miss Rhea. I look forward to your posts but must urge you to take it slowly at first. Healing is a picky thing. Much much love to you dear and welcome back!
