"Z" as in the end of the Alphabet and Alphabe-Thursday

Welcome once again to Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."

Today we are studying the letter "Z."

"Z" is the last letter of the Alphabet.  Today is the last day of Alphabe-Thursday and I am sad.  I believe I was here for the very first Alphabe-Thursday.  Over the years I haven't been real good about blogging, but I always knew I could come back to Alphabe-Thursday and jump right in.

I consider Ms. Jenny a special friend.  She's one of the most thoughtful people I have ever known.  When my son had his first stem cell transplant she asked everyone on her blog to send him a card.  He was in the hospital for weeks.  Every day the nurse would bring in a handful of envelopes.  It helped lift his spirits and mine!

Over the years she has never forgotten us. She has sent many, many cards.

She has been through her own trials and tribulations for a long time now.  Somehow she kept Alphabe-Thursday going for us.  I'm hoping and praying Ms. Jenny's health will improve and this will just be a temporary break.

Please head over to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants.

Bye for now...

UPDATE:  Ms. Jenny is going to be back next Wednesday with something new.  She's not going to be going away after all.  I am so glad.  Thanks Mr. Jenny for being such a good support system for Ms. Jenny!!  You are both in my prayers.

  2. I was feeling a bit lost at the idea of no more Alpha Thursday, so I am happy to see that she's going to continue on in some manner. See you in class!

  3. Yeah - I am glad she will be back and with something new and improved. You are a good friend.

  4. I love Jenny also and she is such a great friend. I am glad she is going to continue something on her blog! Nice post!


  5. A wonderful post, Betty. I'm glad, too, that Jenny will continue to blog. Good for her and for us.

    Thanks for visiting me! My hubby is 70, I maybe he has a tiny bit less zest, but he's putting up a building *here in the mountains half of the work is prepping the floor) - so take it from me, you have plenty of zest left in you to do some great things:):)

  7. I am happy she is back too! I know whatever she decides to share it will be exciting and fun! Always good to see you here and hope we will be sharing some good times at the new meme. Jenny is a kind heart and always looked out for the goodness of others. I was blessed to visit with her back in 2011 when she and her hubby came to the golf course where Nick was running in the Nike SW XC race. That is a great friend and wonderful memory too. Have a great weekend and thanks for this great share. Hugs, Anne

  8. A heartfelt tribute and loving words

  9. I also joined from the beginning I think it was in 2009, I agree with you, she is such a brave and nice lady. We will see with what she will come up !
