Good evening, friends! Thank you so much for coming over and sharing all your wonderful creations with us each week.  
We are almost clear from the Northern California Fires.  The air isn't as full of smoke and the forecast is for a light rain this evening, one that we have all been praying for to help our wonderful, courageous firefighters. We are SO grateful! 
With that said, Welcome to Shoestring Elegance and the What to do Weekends Party!

Surviving Aneurysms, Strokes and Cancer and God's Amazing Grace

Hello sweet friends, I'm so happy to be able to share with you again.  I hope you 
like the new look to my blog.  I felt the need for a fresh start.
As you most likely know, I haven't really been able to write or share any original content with you in quite some time. There is a reason. You know how people always say, your life can change in a moment?  I have, in the past two years,  found out just exactly how true that statement is.  
MY life "changed in a moment" the minute I was baptized and reborn with Jesus Christ and, then, again, on January 2nd, 2016.  Last January.  I received a call from my Sister, who insisted I sit down. (by the way, if you ever want to worry someone, insist that they sit down before telling them why you're calling)  After I convinced her that I was already sitting, she proceeded to tell me that my Mother, My best friend in this world, had suffered an Aneurysm and was currently being helicoptered from the hospital in my Sister's town of Redding, where they had been visiting, to UC Davis Medical Center, Neuro Intensive Care.
