A Prayer Request

Good Morning,I am asking for prayer for my friend Fatima. We've been friends for thirty-five years. We've been together for the birth of four of her adult children and for the raising of my one and her six. We went to nursing school together. We are a part of each other families, attend each other's family reunions.

Fatima has been suffering with cancer for almost six year. She's gone through one life threatening operation after another. She's been through both cardiac and respiratory arrest. Every time that we've been able to hope there has been a new tumor.

Yesterday the diagnosis was handed down that Fatima has two weeks. For some time now my medical knowledge has interfered with my innate beliefs in the power of prayer. But in the end my belief in miracles is stronger than my medical knowledge.

It's really hard for me even at this date not to continue praying for a miracle for Fatima, total and absolute healing.I know that I should be praying for peace for my friend and for her to be alleviated from pain. I can't. I still want a miracle.

So I'm asking of anyone reading this to do what I can't. Please pray for peace for Fatima and a release from her pain.

Have you ever had one of those days where you're with your friends laughing and everything goes perfectly? Well I had one last night when I met with my three critique partners. I wish one of us had thought to bring a camera. Barb Deanne moved to Germany a little over a year ago. We've all kept in contact but you know how it is not as much as you'd promised. And I have to admit Barb made sure that her family's friends would have no problem reaching them because they arranged to keep the same number and they absorbed the cost of the long distance.

Anyway, Barb Dean, Lauren Ford, and Wendy Byrne were my very first critique partners. In the last few years for one reason or the other that changed. Last night it felt like a new chapter in our friendship and as writers you know what happened. We hashed out an idea for a book. I won't discuss it here. But we're bringing fun back into our relationship.

my website

Good morning,

I don't know if any of you have even noticed that my website is sort of down for repairs. I closed out the one because I found one that I could do myself and I was having a ball. I was putting everything I could think of on the site. It didn't matter what it was I was putting it there. I was like a kid in a candy store. And yes I know the analogy is tired but check the time. That's all I've got. LOL.

Anyway while I was having fun creating this even I saaw that I was over doing it. I placed Amazon stickers all over the site and videos galore.

Then I decided to ask my yahoo group what did they think and if they though I'd over done it a wee bit. Deatri had already told Barb that I'd gone crazy.

One of my wonderful members, I don't know if I should be saying her name I didn't ask her permission (Brenda) said to me, Well Dyanne now that you ask.

And the rest as they say is history. Only I hadn't known that only one page is up. She's showing me the link to what she's changed and I can tell you you will see the improvement. Now get this when she's all done I'm going to ask her to change the color. LOL. And the thing of it is I'm serious. I'm not kidding. I like the color and told her to use the color but now I'm wanting a lighter shade of the same color.

She isn't reading this because she's busy working. But you should see the improvements already. Oh I found that I can still get to my old site from some of the embedded urls that stays on the computer. I'm not going to go and tell you to check it out because there's only one page. Maybe tomorrow if I'm more organized I'll post the links so you can see the difference.

Also I'm going to copy and paste this and put it on my other blogs. I'm telling you this so you don't think I wrote anything different on it. Generally I do but today I'm actually going to work and now's as good a time as any. Have a good day.

L.A. Banks comes to town

Can you see me jumping up and screaming? Well I am. L. A. Banks is coming to IL. and to Bolingbrook to do my local cable show. I'm so giddy. Yes, I've met her before several times in fact. But I'm such a huge fan of hers. She's the most gracious person I've ever met. Okay let me change that to one of. LOL.

Beverly Jenkins, Deirdre Savoy, Evelyn Palfrey Katherine Jones are all on that list.

Still to interview the master of the vampire huntress series, wow. I hope I'll be able to do something besides fawn.

My showing will soon be a part of the streaming video so you'll be able to see it. WE're just waiting for the village mayor to approve the order for the equipment. July 28th is when she will be in Bolingbrook.

JULY came and the interview was fantastic. I didn't know I'd never posted this. I'm trying to find a way to post at least a snippet of the video here
