Linda played a letter game and I requested a letter from her so I could play. She gave me the letter "C". I have to write 10 things in my life that start with the letter C. If you would like to play leave a comment and I will give you a letter.

Okay C…..
1. Children I have 3 wonderful daughters that I am very proud of. They are married and have given me 9 fantastic grandchildren.
2. Christmas.. Is my favorite holiday of all! I love the family weekend Christmas and the time we spend together. I love sitting with the grandchildren while the Happy Birthday Jesus book is read and we sing Happy Birthday. I love listening as they read their birthday wishes for Jesus. Brings tears to my eyes every year.
3. Christ... He has been in my heart and life since July 1962. He gives me strength, courage, and loves me unconditionally.
4. Cooking... I love to cook! Love to take try new recipes and love to cook the recipes from grandmas, mother and aunts.
5. Cat... Love my cat Whiskers. He was my mothers cat until she got ill. I talk to him about mother and he will sit and look at me and listen like he remembers too.
6. Chocolate... I am a chocolate fiend! I love hot chocolate, Pea's chocolate candies, any chocolate. When I am stressing give me chocolate!!
7. Candles .... I love making candles and have them all around the house.
8. Cantaloupe... could eat it 24-7. Love it!!
9. Caring... I love caring for my animals, caring for my family, and enjoying showing I care for others by helping in anyway I can.
10. Cancer... Has been a big part of my life. My dad died from lung cancer, my mother from liver cancer, my sister from melanoma. My step dad from kidney cancer, 2 father in laws died from cancer. Uncles, close friends, there has just been too much so I hope that C word doesn't show its ugly head again.
So there are my C words. Thanks Linda!! If you want to play let me know. Posts will be slow coming the next few days as I am getting ready for our family Christmas weekend. We will be heading to Tennessee to my daughters but when I return I will have lots and lots of pictures and lots to post about. Will try to pop in before we leave. Have a blessed week!!

I enjoyed reading this so much, except for the terrible toll cancer has taken on your loved ones. Hoping you are having a good day dear friend.

Wonderful and I'll take a letter please...Ha!

I had no idea about your Dad although I am sure you mentioned it within your kind comments to me regarding my Dad's cancer. I just hate it and the whole ordeal sort of flipped me out.

You have so much to be thankful for and I am ready for more grandkids but my kids sure are being stubborn! Ha!

Hugs! and I love your Christmasy design...

What a neat thing- thanks for sharing this with us.. Cancer is a real pain - I saw a t-shirt that says cancer sucks. Never could have said it better myself.

I bought V8 juice and all kinds of vegetables in an attempt to make veggie soup. Do I just pour it all together and boil it? Is it that simple?
