  5. Hi Dottie:)
    I hope you and your family had a bglorious Easter:)

    Taking things slow is the way to go. You're better off going easy. You'll know when you're ready to return and as others have said, we will be here:)

    Take care dear Dottie, keeping you and yours in our prayers...

    1. Hi Louise,
      Yes, we did have a glorious Easter considering the situation. We have to thank God for all we have and I am so grateful to have family and friends that care. I am sure yours was fabulous too. Slowly is my word...have to go slow or I will get overwhelmed again and I do not want to be in the hospital again. I have found a recipe in one of my cookbooks and I am planing on posting maybe next week for your cookbook Wednesday. That is depending on how I feel. I know you will all be there when I do get back and I thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Be well dear friend....
      Love and hugs..Dottie x
