Another Thursday, another Thumbs up Thumbs down post. Read here for the back story of why I started this.

Thumbs up to all the Christmas shopping I got done yesterday. It was a very successful day and I can proudly say, “I am almost done”.


Thumbs up to Barbara at The Corner on Character for such a wonderful post called Operation SOS and her follow up post called A Heavenly Call. Each of those posts gave me tears of joy and tingles (on my arms) of awe. Barbara and her colleagues, cohorts, volunteers and students never cease to amaze me at the enormity of their, loving, giving hearts. Thank you for always posting such wonderful ideas, inspirations, thoughts and good deeds.

Thumbs up to Diane at Schoolhouse Treasures for a super cute Common and Proper noun sort freebie. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you must, lots of good stuff!

Thumbs up to Barbara at Ruby Slippers Blog Designs for creating such cute Blinkie Joy and allowing us to add it to our blogs to show our holiday spirit. Thank you!





thumbs downThumbs down to cancer! My mom has breast cancer and is on her second round of chemo. Everything was going great with the chemo: her numbers were going down, she is healthy and beautiful, has TONS of energy and looks great, you would never know she has cancer, let alone getting chemo. Yesterday they told her that her tumor maker numbers have gone way up! What? How could that be? We cried, we hugged, we loved and we decided that this absolutely is not her last Christmas with us! She is so strong and amazing and determined to beat this cancer that I have no doubt that my mom will be with us for a very long time (she is only 60 for goodness sake!).

  2. I give a thumbs up to your blog button too. Way cute. Cancer is a crazy roller coaster. Sending positive healing thoughts toward your mom and you. It takes a lot of strength to support someone going through treatment.

  3. Thank you, Shawna, for the thumbs up!! That's so cool. I had tons of fun making the blinkies, but I'd like to give a shout out to Digi-Doodle Doo for the Joy and Christmas tree graphics. She has a very liberal commercial use policy that makes it easy to do fun stuff like this :))
    Blessings to your mom!!!
