My Special Visit and a Giveaway

As most of you know I have been blessed in life with three wonderful children. Two sons and a daughter. Well Saturday my middle son Clint came to check on me and see if I needed anything. Bless his heart he went to the grocery store and brought back all kinds of things but my favorite of course was that he remembered how much I love Cookies. Yep give me a cookie and I am set for the day. Of course with a Diet Dr. Pepper and he did not forget those either.

I enjoyed my visit with him so much and would of loved to have seen my grandbabies and his wife too but you know its good to have just one on one time with a son. Thank you Clint for all you do for your mom. The brownies are good too. lol
Now since I am almost back on my feet I wanted to do a Thank You giveaway for all your prayers and get well wishes. I am a strong believer in being lifted up in prayer by many. So please don't hesitate if you need a prayer for yourself or others. Just ask!
I collect Mola's from Panama and frame them or make pillows. Some people even make purses. Endless possibilities. For this giveaway I am offering one winner a choice of ONE of these three Mola's.

This Mola is an unusual one for Christmas with number 25!
The one below is a sweet Angel.
All you need to do to be entered in this giveaway is to leave me a lovely comment on this post only and of course be a follower of mine. The winner will be chosen by the famous Random Generator. Let's end it August 6th at midnight central standard time. I picked that August 6th because I am hoping to be released from the doctor on that day.
Good luck to all that enter and Bless you for being such a dear friend to me.
Love to all

I could live on cookies too Maggie! How nice to have that visit. I love that bottom one...matches my decor too..awesome! :D

Julie Harward said...

PS...I'll follow you anywhere if you have a cookie in your hand! :D

Jane Jeffress Thomas said...

Hmmmmmm!!!Significant day for me. My grandmother's birthday and the day my first husband was killed in a wreck. If I win, I would chose the angel Mola for obvious reasons. You could always wrap up one of those cookies and slip it in the package too. Yummy!!!

Gerry said...

Oh, Maggie, you've had all of us on the edges of our chairs this summer.
So glad, things couldn't have turned out better.

We just had visits from our sons. The younger and fiancée at the beginning of the month. Then just last week the older son and our dil.
Great time visiting ! !

Any of your Mola's would be neat to have
I love giveaways

Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

My mother's birthdate was August 7, she was born 95 years ago.
Maybe Mr. Random Generator will look kindly one me : ^ )
Oh, I'm just happy entering your giveaway knowing all is going right for you.

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Hi Sweetie!
The only thing better than chocolate cookies (with milk) would be just the milk chocolate chips! I'm awful, aren't I?

I'd follow you anywhere, you know. I especially love the first mola. The birds are just wonderful.

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Our prayers are being answered.

Hugs from Florida,

Sharon's Cottage Quilts said...

Okay....I'm drooling! Cookies...Cookies!!! So glad that you are getting better, bless your heart, it's been a long haul for you. Keeping you in my prayers.

Shirley said...

Hi Maggie, Cookies and Diet Pepsi is what I like. I have two sons and a daughter, plus three grandsons. My youngest son will be getting home from Oklahoma City this Friday. He has been there for training for his job for the last three weeks. I hope you get your release the day before my youngest grandson's birthday. I would love to win the one with the angel, but they are all pretty. Have a great week. Your Missouri Friend.

Shelly said...

Oh Mags!
Darn my phone anyway! Sorry! I TRY to put it in the cradle, HONEST I do, but sometimes it goes dead quickly! (Ask Lulu! LOL)
I bought a "Backup" at a garage sale and tried it out,,,,"cccccccccccccchhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Hello? cccccccccccccchhhhhhhhh," Okay, so the Buck I paid for it was NOT well spent!!!
I'll call you back tomorrow! LOL

Ohhhh fun giveaway! I'm loving the first one, like Donna, with the birds! I love anything with birds!

And, AHEM, of COURSE I follow!!

Love you to pieces! So much fun to chat with you today! : )


Debby said...

Since I won your other give a way, don't enter me.
Although those are interesting. I have never heard of those.
So nice to have some comfort food. Keep up that good work. So glad that things are going better. Just take it easy my dear.

NitWit1 said...

Would love to win anyone of those but the angel is cute.

But best of all were the words you were nearly back to normal. Look OUT Bad Guys. MS PEARL Grandmayellowhair will sonn be loose again.

Dan said...


You are so blessed to have children who love you as much as you do! The cookies look wonderful and a Diet Dr. Pepper always hits the spot.

I can not express to you how happy I am that you are on the road to recovery. I really hope that doctor will release you on August 6th. What a great day that will be.

I haven't forgotten about our tweaking challenge. Now that you are almost on your feet again, it will be a good time to do some tweaking.

I will continue to pray that you heal and get better really soon. You are in my thoughts and heart always!


LuLu Kellogg said...

Gimmie a cookie♥

LuLu Kellogg said...

p.s. Ms. Pearl needs to make an appearance soon......LOL

My Grama's Soul said...

Hello dear friend.....just stopped in to check and see how things are going with you. You are eating COOKIES so all must be well in your world!(O:)(O:

I can't believe you collect Molas......I have one from over 40 years ago that I bought on Sandblass Island when my ex and I were stationed in Panama. Oh my.........THIS IS SUCH SMALL WORLD!!!!!



The White Farmhouse said...

I am so glad to hear that you are back on your feet. Of course, if I had a wonderful son bringing me goodies I think I would milk it out for a bit! I am sure though that you are about sick of that bed though. It is so nice to hear you sounding back to your self. I hope that things just go upward from now on!

Pat said...

So glad to know you are well on your way to getting back to "normal". Hopefully things will go smoothly for you! You deserve some good luck!

jojo said...

oh sweet Maggie, you have no idea how you have touched my heart with this post! First off, there is something really special about a little one on one time with a son, I can't explain it either but it is special indeed. And secondly, the Molas...shortly before he died my dad took a cruise to Panama and brought back several Molas, he framed them and attached a little history, then he gave each of us kids one for Christmas. It was the last gift I recieve from him and it sits right here on my desk where I can see it everyday. Sweet memories. So glad you are feeling better, the tests all came out well and soon you will be back on your feet....Blessings!

Libbie said...

Almost back on your feet! That is the best thing I read all day! YEAH MAGGIE!!! I hope you are going to take it easy still though! You don't wanna go out clubbing your first night up! Wait at least until the 3rd night! :) Don't enter me since I already won your fudge but do take care maggie!!!

Anonymous said...

Love them all, have a nice day!

Cherrie said...

I pray that you do get released on that day! I picked up me some double oreo's today! yum with milk double yum!

yaya said...

Glad you're almost healed and back to doing fun things. What a nice boy who loves his Mama and knows how to "treat" her right! Have a great week!

Laura said...

I am so glad you are on the mend and that you have the special love of a thoughtful son.

Someday we can exchange colonoscopy stories...

Sares said...

I'm so glad to hear you are so very close to getting back on your feet finally! That was very naughty of you to show those cookies. Now I want one. Or two. Or three.

Mumsy said...

It is wonderful to hear that you are nearing the end of the painful journey you have been on for the last many long weeks. Praying you are all ready to be released from the doctor very soon. I smiled as I read about your son. We not only share the same name but would you believe that my only biological son's name is Clint? Enjoy those cookies! Hugs

Linda said...

Wow, another giveaway! I'm just glad you are feeling better.

Sons are wonderful! I have 2, and 1 daughter. We are staying with our youngest, son #2. Hubs is having prostate CA treatments, and he is in town on business, so we get to stay in his wonderful motel room. So much better than a Super 8!

Kovas Palubinskas said...

Thanks for the follow - following back!

Arkansas Patti said...

Your kids have really come through for you haven't they? Pay backs are wonderful.
Great news that you are almost normal.
I'm supposing that Clint was named for "the Clint."
Keep up the good work Maggie. We want you all the way back.

Karen Whittal said...

It is only by faith that we are able to get through the things that life throws at us....... but God in his wisdom gave us angels to help us in the form of friends and family bringing gifts of love to make the day sweeter...... enjoy my friend..... lots of love Karen

Sissy said...

So happy to hear you are on the road of recovery, Maggie. Just ask, you said. So I'm asking for your prayers for Allen, the brother who had cancer and is still very ill. His lungs are totally full of blood clots from the chemotherapy. Thank you. Mola is a new word for me...where's my dictionary?
I seriously wish you would do some research about the artificial sweeteners in soft drinks,especially aspartame. I really do.

dulcy said...

Wow! So much can happen over the course of a week.... Glad all is well with you Maggie. I know you're so happy to get things back to normal, and I'm happy for your. Those cookies are making mouth water, so I better go see what I can dig up. Looking forward to reading more of your adventures when your "up an' at em'"

Meghan said...

I would love to be entered! Thank you, Maggie!

Draffin Bears said...

sissie said...

Hi Maggie,
I just knew we had a lot more in common....Cookies!!! Yep, I love them and I can eat an entire box of Keebler fudge sticks, (in secret of course)! So, If I were there and Mardon too, you would have to share.


sissie said...

Gosh, I meant to say Marydon.

Please forgive me Marydon. I love you. hugs.

Jan @ bobbypins boardwalk said...

It's been a long road for you and I'm so happy to hear that you're mending. I think that August 6 sounds like the perfect time to have the drawing for this awesome giveaway because I just know the doc will be giving you good news. They're all beautiful, but I love the birds in the top one! I also love cookies, but have to eat the entire package before I can leave them alone.

Sharon said...

Prayers for you. I am so glad to hear that you are getting better.
I have never heard of a Mola but I would sure be happy as a clam to win one.
What a great give away.
have a great weekend.

Annesphamily said...

Maggie, blessings to you. It seems someone is always struggling with something here in blog land. I like this giveaway. I never heard of a Mola either but they sure are beautiful. I learn new things over here all the time! I love cookies too. One of our imaging vendors brings fresh hot cookies and those are soo hard to resist! Yummy! You are very kind to have a giveaway when you were going through a tough time yourself. You are so sweet and kind. Hugs to you form Anne

I love molas! I had the good fortune of spending time in Panama ten years ago. Visited my goddaughter who was spending a semester there. So enjoyed looking at molas.

Count me in for this giveaway. Just read your newest post and feeling gratitude you are are, aren't you? So many say, "I'm fine" when they aren't fine yet. In time, dear Maggie, all in time. Living without your "happy makers" to "cheer me silly" is like a day without sunshine.

Thanks sweetie. Hugs, Marydon
