April Sunday In Spring WI Style & A Prayer Request Update & A Pretty Please Plea

This is what Spring looks like.
Sadly, that is NOT what Spring looks
like in Wisconsin.
Now...You DO remember that
we live by the bay? is what we are seeing today.
That is snow along the rocks and on the sand.
Are  you feeling cold yet?
Cold on land and cold in the air-
Well, while I am dreaming of someplace like this...
I want to give you a quick update.
on my friend, Gert. 
You can read the original prayer request(here)
Here are some of her own words from the
rehab center:
Today, they had me walking and I was so impressed with 
how good I did,compared to how far I walked (and how I
walked) when I was in the hospital, then I remembered all those
thoughts and  PRAYERS everyone from Diana's blog have 
been sending me.  I want to THANK every one for
your love and  concern!
You see, prayers really do  make a difference.

One more quick little request.
If you have a moment-pop by and vote for
my grandson- Big Boy E again
in the contest.
He is moving up the ladder!!!
He was in the 300's and is now in the mid 100's.
Every VOTE counts.
(you do have to type in some
little word/phrase they give you
when you hit vote)
Just think- He could be your future
What do you mean you're not 
going to vote now?

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

So glad your friend is doing well and the prayers for her are working!
And what a cutie your grandson is!!!

Kathy@ Gone North said...

Well, our spring is looking like yours, cold & snow again yesterday.
I am from Holland Mi. where the many, many tulips bloom brightly, just not yet.
I voted for Baby E again... may we do it more than once??

Susie said...

Diana, Some times I think we are related.Funny huh?Big boy E is a beauty, I voted. Are we allowed to vote more than once? I have Gert in my prayers...she is a sweet lady.xoxo,Susie

oh I'm so glad she's doing well, that boys a winner for sure,

Patty Patterson said...

He could be my future grandson in law, but I don't think you want him moving way down here, and I definitely don't want my girls moving way up there and we're already sisters in Christ so that's just going to have to be good enough for now. LOL And - you just reminded me of one of the positives of my ki8ds moving to Texas. They're not in a military town so maybe those girls won't marry anyone who is going to haul them all the way across the country and around the world. :-)

Nellie said...

We are having cooler weather here now, though we do have lots of springtime flowers.

Yes, I continue to offer prayers for Gert.

I'll be sure to vote for that precious grandson of yours. Will they permit me to vote twice?

xo Nellie

Jill said...

What a cutie! On my way to vote.

Sending more prayers for your dear friend. She looks so sweet!

Donna said...

It's been colder than normal here too, Diana. At least 20 degrees, brr! I am so ready to be on that tropical beach! So glad to hear that your friend Gert is progressing. I already voted for your little cutie patootie! Maybe in about 20 years I can introduce my little great niece to him??!! Then you and I can really be related!

It's cold almost everywhere it seems...spring is having a hissy fit.

I am so glad to hear that your friend is improving, and yes prayers do help.


Kirby Dunton Carespodi said...

My beautiful daughter is far too old for him, and I have no grandchildren yet. But that won't stop me from voting!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Sending prayers to your friend! I hope she continues to recover.

Voted for that cute little thing; he's just darling!

Beth said...

No snow here. The sun is shining but it is cold and windy. I have cast my vote again!

Anonymous said...

I've got to be honest, i'm more inclined to like the cold and wet days than the hot and dry. I can't be out in the sun long so I long for short sunny days most times. I love the sky photo you took.. something very hmmmm.... almost secretive... like the sky has a thing to say about the night. Very pretty. That kid, oh my gosh... he's cute. Cuddle him quick. Hugs. Tammy

Blondie's Journal said...

Love that tropical picture...that's definitely where I want to be! I'm going to pop over tho Gert's, you little angel! And off to vote for that cutie again! I wish him lots of luck!


Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Voting again and again.
Praying for Gert and her friend. It's 2:30 on 4/21 Sun

I remember you everytime they say such funny things and how they observe life and the things 'us' grown ups do, lol..I'm having such great time, specially with the 6 yr. old..she's just too much!! I'm very happy for your friend, she's doing so much progress, ha! Have a wonderful week dear friend.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

DIANA! teehehehehehhee

Well dear, I live in MINNEAPOLIS just "next door" to ya, and we are getting MORE SNOW TONIGHT or tomorrow, I believe. Can YOU believe that? And if we get it, chances are you may see some flurries too. Let's bring on the flowers already!

THANK YOU for your bday wishes! Anita

Merlesworld said...

That's a cold spring your summer should be good with a bit of luck, glad your friend is doing well, I checked out some of the other photos his got a pretty good chance of winning.

Leslie said...

Such a darling photo Diana:) glad to hear your friend is walking. Prayer trees work! Your spring looks cold:(. Ours is green but wet, muddy, and the skies are grey. Temps are still in the thirties in the morning. Forecast is looking brighter.. 60's!


Ivy and Elephants said...

Glad your friend is doing better.
Just got through voting for that adorable little grandson of yours!
Good luck.


God does hear our prayers!
I'm hoping we get better weather soon too! It's just too cold and the snow once again is melting, when it isn't raining!
Thank you for the birthday wishes!

Teresa said...

Warning...I think spring is skipping us this year in Wisconsin! I saw snow flakes again today. Hey at least we saw blue skies yesterday! Spring tried to come in. lol. I am so glad that your friend is doing better. Prayers will continue for her recovery.

Rick Watson said...

The weather here today was absolutely beautiful. It was about 72, with blue sky, cotton clouds, and warm sun.

Also, I voted for that little rascal :)

Art and Sand said...

It amazes me how wildly different the weather is across the country right now - and not in a good way.

I will keep your friend Gert in my prayers and now I am heading over to vote for your little grandson. He would be much too old for my granddaughter because she doesn't even exist yet- not even a twinkle in the eye.

Celestina Marie said...

Oh Diana, I so hope you see spring soon. So thrilled to read such good news from Gert. She has an amazing smile. I voted for your darling cutie pie. He is going to break hearts one day.
Have a great week.
Celestina Marie

Hope spring comes soon in your area!

Karen Frost said...

It is cold here, too, snow in the foothills, but getting warmer. So glad to hear good news about your friend, I will continue to pray for her. Sweet, sweet boy, I voted and hope he wins. xoxo

ImSoVintage said...

I'm trying to type, but after seeing your photos I am huddled under the covers trying to warm up and the only thing showing is my nose. Glad to hear your friend is doing well, Diana and will vote again. xo Laura

Stephanie said...

So thankful to hear your friend is doing well! I will continue to pray for Gert :) I enjoyed the pictures of the bay and I hope Spring comes to you soon!


Claudia said...

Your grandson is adorable, Diana. Prayers being sent to your friend - so glad to hear they are working.

The cold doesn't want to leave, it seems. My goodness, it's almost the end of April and we still have frost here at night! I didn't bring enough warm clothes with me.


Laura said...
