This is a card that I made a while ago and haven't posted yet! I think I made it for a PC call. It has been so long that I can't remember!

Anyway.... nothing new has been made lately and I wanted to 'talk' so I thought I would post this!

Hope you are all doing well! I am doing really good!

I went to church tonight for the first time since my surgery! It was great to be back home!! I look forward to going on Sunday! I hope by then I can manage to wear some blue jeans. No one would care if I came in sweat/stretchy pants but.... I would! :) I guess I could wear a dress... if I owned one! Ha! Oh wait... I do have one... I can wear that! Sweet!!

My parents came over to spend the day today! My dad was going to keep Carver busy playing and my mom wanted to clean my house! Instead.... we took Carver to Pump It Up and then met Michael for lunch at Chick-fil-A! I, of course, didn't get to jump at Pump It Up but it was fun to watch Carver play with his grandparents for a while! I have decided that I am not going to sit at home everyday. I feel good and am ready to get out and do things as I can. My post op instructions say that I can get back to normal activities (well... most of them) as tolerated and.... that is what I am doing!

I still hear of people who are praying for me on a daily basis... I am just overwhelmed! I know those prayers are being answered and my body is healing so quickly! It seems as though a lot of people are surprised at how well I am doing! I find myself surprised as well!
Isn't that silly? I mean... I can clearly see how God moved to get this cancer out of my body so fast and then I find myself surprised at how well I am doing!


One of these days, hopefully soon, I will quit posting updates about my health! You all know that I am doing well now so I will try not to talk about it all of the time from here on out.

I seriously hope to make some cards tomorrow! We have a new EBKS sketch challenge coming up soon, my Grandmother's birthday is in a few days, my sweet MIL's bday has already passed, and of course... I have a ton of Thank you cards to make. I really need to get busy! I have been busy just getting my life back in order as I have had the energy! Oh sweet card making supplies... how I have missed you!!

Well... enough rambling I guess! I hope to start catching up with you all soon! I feel so out of the loop... I don't know what anyone has been up to lately!

Thanks again for all of the prayers and well wishes! I am doing well but still ask for your prayers anytime that you think about me! I am hard headed and mean so.... I will never tell you not to pray for me! I need all of it I can get! :)

Peace and Love!!

You've definitely have been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be, Kelley!! Keep up the positive thinkin' :)

I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling a bit more like yourself, you really sound happy which is wonderful to hear. Take care. I love the butterfly on the kraft, very pretty.:)

Kelley, praise God for His faithfulness. It is such a blessing to all of us who care for you to see you recovering so well. Thank you for remaining faithful and honoring God through this very difficult trial. I know it's had to have been so hard, yet you focused on the Lord, what a blessing. Love you girl!

Vanessa said...

Kelley, I don`t know how to express how happy I am about you recovering so well!!! My stomach finally gave up irritating me because I worried about you so much! Love ya!


Amy Heller said...

Yay! I am so glad things are returning to normal for you! You couldn't ask for more!! :)

Stacy said...

I am so glad to hear you are doing well! I have been following all along and praying for you and your family too. ;)

Janelle said...

So excited to check my google reader this morning and see that you updated! Oh, how I've missed visiting your blog and hearing what you've been doing! And, isn't it crazy how we can see God's intervention and healing in our lives and still be surprised by it?! He is so good to us, why would we be surprised? (A question for me to ponder today...) Have a super, fantastic day today, Kelley!

Courtney Baker said...

I can't believe I missed you at church last night! Such a bummer! So glad you are doing good. I can't wait to see you!

Dianne said...

It is wonderful to hear that you are healing swiftly and feeling better each day. I check your blog everyday to keep up with you. :) I report to Cliff what you have to say about your health. We think about you often and love you dearly.

Alanna said...

What a beautiful card. I love it. And I'm glad to hear that you are getting out of the house.

Winter said...

I am so happy to hear the 'old Kelley' coming back! I can hear happiness instead of worry, and that is only from God! He is SO GOOD! I can't wait to get caught up with you, I have lots to tell you, I'll be sending you an email soon!
Love the card, the colors are great! :)

Espbfdl said...

all I can say is....I'm glad you are back and still positive AND GOD IS GOOD!!! When I had surgery....the only place I wanted to be was in church- something about the body of Christ! LOVE IT:) Thinking of you!

Great to hear your up and about doing things!

Keep it up, but don't work yourself too hard either!

Have Fun & Take Care

I'm so glad you are feeling much better Kelley! Keep taking it one day at a time and before you know it, you'll be back to everything as usual BUT with a new perspective which is always a gift. Love ya!

Glad to hear you are doing WELL!!!

This just warms my heart! I am so glad to hear that you are doing so much better! Big big hugs!

What an answer to prayer to hear that you are healing well and quickly! I've been quite, but you have been in my daily prayers the whole time. What a testament it is to hear you preserver through this tough and trying time.

I laugh when you talk about going to Pump it Up and Chick-fil-A. I did the same thing with my little man Isaiah the other day. A friend had a b-day party at PIU and then we went for a yummy dinner of Chick-fil-A.

Anyways, have a blessed day!!!
