Friday's Letters

 I haven't written any Friday Letters in a while, but just had a few I needed to write this week.  Some just because and some to do a little "ranting and raving."  Thanks Ashley for hosting this fun meme each Friday!
Dear Apple, did you really need to do this recent operation update?  I've always thought that the rule, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" was a good one.  It seemed that the previous system was just fine and more bells and whistles is NOT always good. ~just saying~

Dear Government, do you even know what you are doing?
~I think not~

Dear Sherry, what fun it was to have lunch with you yesterday.  You are so gifted and the Lord is using you in so many awesome ways to touch women's lives through your personal life and career.  You are a blessing my dear! I'm so happy for you and your new Itunes app, See Jane Thrive You go girl!!!

Dear Daddy, I am so thrilled that your back has not hurt you since your procedure on Monday.  I am so sorry that it does seem in recent weeks that your vision has gotten even worse and you are having more difficulty with your day to day tasks.  I wish that I could make it all better for you.

Dear Hubby, you have done such a good job in changing your lifestyle this past month.  Your eating and exercise habits are going to be such a benefit to you in the long run.  Hang in there, I'm very proud of you!

Dear Christmas, I have made a dent in you and will start my annual fudge making in the next few days.  I can't believe I'm thinking of Christmas and it is still above 90 degrees most days. ~ugh, surely cooler days are on the way~

Dear Shoe Designers, please make some shoes with mid-heels.  I do NOT do flats and I do not do 4 inch heels.  I'm thinking some selection with 2 inch heels would be to my liking. Thank you in advance!

Dear Amazon, is there anything that cannot be bought on your website?  I love you and I love my Prime membership.  It's sort of like blinking my eyes when I place an order and presto, the item arrives within 48 hours.  It's like magic! 

 Dear Grocery Stores, I have no problem with coupons, in fact, I think folks that use them are so thrifty.  But, when a shopper brings in about 50 of them and gets ahead of me in line.  Well, it is crazy!  You need to provide a special lane for "coupon users" and not make non-coupon users have to wait such a long time behind them. Thank you in advance!

Dear Weather, I am really, really ready for this hot and humid weather to be outta here.  P-l-e-a-s-e send us some "real" fall weather NOW!

Dear Lord, thank you so, so much for the peace that you have given me in recent days.  I know that it's always available, I just don't always avail myself to it.  I cannot imagine life without you!

Dear Readers of My Blog, thank you so much for stopping by and your sweet comments and encouragement.  You are the "icing on the cake" for me!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I'm so glad that your dad has fotten relief from his procedure ... and so sorry to hear that he's having problems with his vision.

    I'm having trouble finding flats, especially dressier flats! I don't do heels of any kind.

    I, too, am a huge fan of Amazon ... I especially love that I can use my Discover Card's cashback bonus when shopping on Amazon.

  2. Good morning! Soo happy your dad's back is doing better and sorry about the vision difficulties. Will start praying about that. My head is wrapped around Christmas too, only I started in July! haha Enjoy your week-end Lea!

  3. So happy your dad is doing better. Since I've heard about your dad, I try to always check for updates.

    I agree with you about the shoes! I hope they start listening to us. Smile.

    You're tired of the warm & humid days, too? I second that!

    You're ahead of me on the Christmas shopping...I need to snap to it! I've just had a few family situations I've been facing lately. (prayers appreciated)

    Hope you have a blessed weekend. :)

  4. Well I just enjoyed every one of your mini letters this morning. Concise and to the point, and relevant to your busy life. I liked it! I think the weather is supposed to please us both this weekend. I sure am ready too. Hope you have a very enjoyable weekend.

  5. Praise God Daddy feels better!!!!
    Enjoyed all of your letters today...
    really fudge already? Do you freeze it or what :-) ?

    Have a blessed weekend,


  6. So glad the back surgery has helped your Dad. I've been praying for him. So many seniors have orthopedic problems. It's a joy to see some relief!

  7. I love amazon as well and agree, just about anything can be found there.

    We are having very warm temps too that are very out of the norm. It should be back to normal in a few days

    Hope you are enjoying this Friday evening :)

  8. I enjoyed every one of your letters. So glad your dad is doing better in his back but sorry about his vision. My mom is suffering after eyelid surgery (to give her more peripheral vision) and I wish I could make it all better. lLet's be thankful that we do make it somewhat better by being there when they need us.

  9. I recently switched to Android so I don't have to deal with the funky Apple update! I seriously doubt our Government knows what they are doing. I pray for them! Thankful your daddy is feeling better, but sorry to hear about his eyesight. I cannot believe Christmas is so soon. I'd better get to shopping!

  10. Your letters reveal so much about you, and I enjoyed reading each one. Your caring, thankful spirit comes out through each letter, and some made me smile. The coupon isle especially, since that is one of my pet peeves.

    Thank you for the Monday morning inspiration found here.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
