Christmas Wishes

David, my brother, asked me to pass on his thanks for everyone's support with his efforts to raise money for prostate cancer. My 'Making a Difference' post has the details about his efforts. He still has a long way to go, so if you could share this link, https://incatrekforcancer.everydayhero.com/au/davidc, or consider donating a small amount, that would be awesome. Again, thank you so very much.

Also the health concerns I had a couple of months ago are now officially over after I was given the all clear. Yay! Thank you for your prayers and well wishes. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. The IWSG Team has also passed on their Christmas wishes over at our website.

I will return for the first IWSG posting in the New Year, Wednesday 7th January.

What will you be doing over Christmas? (pop on over to the IWSG site to find out what I'll be doing)

    1. Thanks, Michael. Thankfully, Dave doesn't have cancer. He's just raising money for cancer research and he seems to be doing a really good job. I appreciate your prayers, and I'm sure he does too.

  12. Lynda - I missed your brother's post. I will check it out. My dad was diagnosed last Christmas and recently found out the cancer is on the move. It's still contained within the prostate, though, so he's considering his options. I think he's leaning toward having the surgery, just scared about the possible bodily repercussions. YAY! for your personal health concerns being over. So thankful for you. Have a wonderful Christmas holiday. Looking forward to reconnecting in the new year!

  21. I'm glad to hear the news about your health, and best of luck to your brother in his quest. As for what I'm doing over the holidays, I've been having a relatively subdued holiday in New York (across the North American continent from my permanent residence in Northern California) and I definitely needed the rest.

  22. It's a good thing I came back to check, because sure enough, my post didn't save. That's been happening to me a lot lately. I can only surmise it's because I'm using my tired old laptop. Left my iMac at home in Canada. Can't remember what I wrote. Probably something about how proud you must be of your brother. Very happy you're doing well, Lynda. Happy New Year.
