Recipes for Relaxation

A girlfriend sent me a precious card. Some spa recipes 
were inside the card.
I am trying to relax, while waiting for my next step toward dealing with cancer.

My doctor's appointments were moved out a week, due to one of the doctors had a family emergency.

Tomorrow afternoon, I am having lunch with some neighbor ladies. It will be great to catch up.
 Afterwards ,I am having a thyroid biopsy at the hospital.
I am feeling so much better. Your  prayers have worked wonders.
Friday, two girlfriends have invited me to lunch at
a lovely nursery. It's a busy week

Here's some photos from the Nursery.

Here's some great spa recipes....enjoy!

 Many thanks for your continued prayers and uplifting thoughts.  

Love, Linda

    I am so happy to hear that you are feeling so much better. It sounds like you have some lovely friends that love to take good care of you.
