Thank you!


Mums and Cows 216

THANK you for all your emails, calls and comments about MUMS, she is strong and doing well!

My Mom has been dealing with health issues since she was first diagnosed with bladder cancer at 32. 30 years

later she is still going strong.

But, all positive! We try and always remain positive about it!

She is the strongest women I will EVER know.

God always watches over angels!

Thank you again for your love and prayers!

Here is a quick,  fresh asparagus side dish.

My son LOVES it! Your kids might too. Try it.

Pre-heat oven 350

Rinse Asparagus

I like to cut 1 inch off the bottom end of the asparagus (the white part)

Lay on baking dish

Cover in olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste.

Cook for 45 minutes

I like to use alot of pepper in this dish, it really is good that way, trust me!

Have a beautiful day friends!



  1. Lu, I'm so glad she's okay. I've been worried.

    Love you,

  2. Hi LuLu,
    I will continue to pray for your mom. Prayer is a mighty force before a great God. Both of Joe's parents had bladder cancer. I have always thought it odd that both had it. Pretty photos as always. We adore asparagus.

  3. Hi LuLu-
    I'm glad your mom is okay, my thoughts are with your whole family and I will be praying for you :) I love aspargus just the way you wrote it down, so yummy, sometimes I'll add a little lemon zest too :) Have a good night!

  4. I am so pleased to hear that your mum is doing better. I'll keep her in my prayers! Thanks for sharing your asparagus dish, I will have to try it! You images are beautiful! xx

  5. Hi Lu,

    You both have all my prayers.

  16. She sounds like a strong-willed, very loved woman. I too love the vignette you have there. I am finding I like to lean paintings up on surfaces, then place things in front of it to give it more dimension.
