Friday Letters

I do love letter writing, it's very therapeutic and a whole lotta fun!

Dear Easter Season - you are upon us and I hope that we will use these coming weeks to prepare our hearts.  It is the season of Lent and some folks give up something for Lent.  I have never done that, but I do want to focus more and prepare my heart for the celebration of our Risen Lord on Easter Sunday
Dear Spring - come on, I know you can do it.  Show yourself!!!  We are more than a little tired of winter.   The poor daffodils are so confused!
Dear Bridget - I am so looking forward to our special "mother/daughter" time in a few more days.  This is way over due! And, I'm praying daily that this pregnancy is going to go "picture perfect" and we'll be blessed with another precious little Gran to love come October.
Dear Mary Kay Cosmetics - can I just tell you that I'm in love with your Luminous Wear Foundation, it is the BEST!!  And, applying it with your foundation brush makes it look like it has been air-brushed on. And, to top it off, you are so, so reasonably priced, $20 for a tube that lasts me almost 5 months. And,and I've used your skincare for years and think it is tops too. 

Dear Planking - I'm not quite sure I understand this whole craze.  And, I'm pretty sure that if I tried you that I would not be able to get out of bed the next morning.  Think I'll just stick with walking on the treadmill.  It's pretty simple, doesn't require any awkward position and I've been doing it for about 25 years. ~big smile~
Dearest Momma - you were so smart to teach me that we are to "eat to live and not live to eat."  You were way ahead of the game back in the day and our society is definitely all about living to eat and it has caused so many issues for so many folks.

Dear OPI - how on earth do you come up with the names for your nail polish?  You must have some extra creative folks working for you.  I mean names like, You Pink Too Much, I Can Teal You Like Me, Crime Caper, Chasing Rainbows and Blushing Hour are not your normal nail polish names.  Some of your colors are wayyy to "out there" for me but others are just what I'm looking for.  I do believe you have been tested and tried and have come out a winner!

Dear Self - if I could go back and relive my life I'd do a whole lot less fretting and realize sooner that so many things really do have a way of working out if we will just give them time. And, I'd accept that I do not have to know how things are going to work out, just that they will, one way or the other and not necessarily in the way I think it should or I thought it should.  ~did that make sense~

Dear Heated Mattress Pad - on, my goodness! you are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Crawling into a warm bed is the ultimate.  Not sure why we have not gotten one of you long before now, but that's okay, we're enjoying you now.  Laying on a heated mattress is sooooo much better than laying under a heated blanket.
 ~just sayin'"

Dear Blogging Buddies - some of you are still "no reply bloggers" and you make it very, very difficult to respond to your comments if you are set up that way.  I doubt that you really want to be set up that way and you may not realize it.  But, here's the scoop on how to enable your blog with your email.
How to enable your e-mail: BLOGGER ACCOUNTS: To do this, click on your Dashboard, click on EDIT PROFILE and place a check mark next to SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS, and finally scroll to the bottom and click SAVE PROFILE.
 I often want to reply to your comments via email but when you have that disabled, I can't. ~boo-hoo~

Have yourself a happy weekend and dream of Spring!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. I always enjoy your letters on Friday. Yes, MK has some amazing new products. I am loving the new Complexion Corrector. That is all I use during the day. I too pray this pregnancy is perfect for Bridget and look forward to hearing about that perfect new Gran in a few months.

    I'm having so much trouble with my back right that I can't spend much time sitting at the computer. Hope to return to blogging next week. Happy Pre-Spring!

  2. I wish you could see me smiling, CiCi, your Friday letters are priceless, especially the ones to your Mom,daughter, self, to Easter, and Spring, I think I just might write one to Spring. ~smile~
    Enjoy your weekend,

  3. Very good read...I too wish I had learned earlier not to fret so much....Why when we have a big mighty God?

    Have a great weekend!


  4. When I got my nails done, I always used "I'm Not Really a Waitress" from OPI. I loved that red color. I've heard it is their most popular one.

  5. I always enjoy reading your Friday letters!

    I have written in my Bible next to Matthew 6:25-34 that the only time I worry is when I've tried to take control back from God ... then when I acknowledge that He's in control, I have no need to worry. I wish I could say that I never worry ... but alas, I try, too often I fear, to take back control. :-(

    I wonder if the king-sized heated mattress pads have dual controls. I like my bed warmer than my hubby does. ;-)

  6. I was a sales director with Mary Kay for several years - Love the products :) OPI is the best but I seldom paint my nails, just wears off too quickly for me. I think I was one of those that needed to change my blogger profile, just did :) Have a super weekend!

  7. My email is if you ever want to 'talk' to me. :)

    I think we grew up in the same generation as I always identify with what you write.

    Blessings and love,

  8. These letters are SO fun!!! I laughed out loud on a couple of them...esp. the OPI. So true! Have fun with your daughter and have a great week!

  9. Always love your letters! I use to sell Mary Kay a long time ago. I still use a few of their products and love the skin care. Have a wonderful weekend!


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!
