SWEET TEA

Too many lemons in the Sweet Tea!

This is one of the things my sister gave me for Christmas - she knows I love all things pertaining to "Sweet Tea"


Love these napkins!

It does seem we spent the holiday season dodging lemons and trying to "Make Merry" the best we could.  These napkins were perfect!

I was still recovering from my angry colon pre-Thanksgiving bout of illness when we made our pre-Christmas trip to Oklahoma.  Tho my energy was a bit lacking, the fun with our family made up for it. I handled the trip well.  One always hopes fun will trump feeling sick, and it did!

A few days after getting home our sweet little HK got terribly sick with a nasty virus and spent an evening in the ER with "severe dehydration". 
Our sweet girl went almost 24 hrs with no wet diaper.  It took her about five days to feel well again.

Fast forward 24 hours and Christmas Eve found Lil' Mama and her Fiance both in the ER being treated for the same nasty virus.

We were all pretty much elated, thrilled, ecstatic, happy to kick 2014 to the curb and welcome in a bright New Year!

Sweet Tea, anyone?
Absolutely no lemons allowed!

So thankful for God's healing hand which has delivered us from illness and brought us "whole, hearty, and healthy" into 2015!

*Let the record show that our Son and DIL both became ill while on their dream trip to Paris during the Christmas holiday AND our Tulsa daughter had emergency oral surgery during the same time frame.  Son and DIL are home now and feeling better.  Tulsa daughter is on week 3 of pain meds but is recovering, albeit slowly

So sorry to hear about all the illness in your family over Christmas. We know only too well what that was like as we had a stomach bug that went round the whole family from just before Christmas to New Year!

Dear, you will be so happy when everyone is brand new again. I hope it all leaves your house soon. I told my Teddy, that I was scared to get the flu this year...seems to be turning into pneumonia. Please take care of yourself. Blessings to your family and you. xoxo,Susie

Oh my dear. I have wondered how you were doing as you usually kick out a new post even when down.
I pray you are all on the road to health! Hope mom is well and the Mr. too. Think enough people have "had it" at your house and am hoping that if someone hasn't been sick that they dodge that bullet.
Happy 2015 to you and all you love.
