I am so excited to be back on the board after a bout with cancer and a heart attack during chemotherapy. DH had major abdominal surgery plus other health issues during the same time. We couldn't have made it without our children and their spouses. So yes, I am very excited to be back and see what beautiful things you all have been doing. They are such an inspiration.

It's wonderful to have you back with us. Hope you are taking it "one stitch at a time" - pun intended...

Take it easy in this summer heat. And congrats to you and DH for overcoming so many obstacles. I hope your seam ripper is all you need for awhile.

Glad to see you back, and doubly glad you and DH are well again.
I love Auburn! All my 3 went there, and one grandson. DD didn't graduate, but the others did. Our youngest son was commissioned a naval officer there...by DH!

Sorry to hear about this. I really don't know many people here even though I have been on here over 10 years. I never really realize anyone Is missing until it is pointed out to me. Glad you and your family are doing well. When things like this hit us we realize how mundane our usual worries are. Life is not about things but about the people we love and care about. Sending good thoughts and pr ayer s your way.

Welcome back!
When some of us don't post as much or aren't as involved as usual, it's hard to know whether something's wrong or life just gets busy.
We're glad you're better!
