Countdown to New York

One week from TODAY Lee & I will be on a plane east.  Continuing the journey toward HOPE.

To kick off this last week of my physical freedom, if you will, the family is going to see Fr. Tony for a special blessing.  If you are ever in Elmhurst, IL, go to Mary Queen of Heaven for a dose of Fr. Tony, he is the absolute epitomy of what a Priest should be.

Tonight we are having dinner with my wonderful Grade School/High School friends.  I made my first bread pudding with Mom yesterday....they better wear elastic-waist pants, because it is super fattening and super delish.

If you are interested in where Lee & I will be staying, please email me




  1. Peggy, you must be so excited and anxious about your trip. I hope all goes well for you. I am lifting you up in prayer right now!

  2. I LOVE bread pudding (and I have elastic pants)!!

    ~ Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. ~ Anon.

    ~ Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles. ~ Samuel Smiles

    ~ Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again ~ Sarah Ban Brethnach

    ~ True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort ~ Walter Anderson

    Love you and know that your VPW's (Vermont Prayer Warriors) are on the job!

  3. Peggy, your journey has been unbelievable and you are an inspiration to all. my thoughts and continued prayer are with you for a safe trip and 100% successful surgery. you go girl!

  4. Peg, So much good news and so much thanksgiving with your recovery in sight! You must have an army of prayer warriors. I know that my mother prays for you everyday at daily mass. Me, in my own way. I continue to pray for your health, your family and friends who are supporting you everyday. I will also pray for Dr. Fong as I prayed for my surgeon. It sounds like his work is saving lives including yours. Hugs, kisses and love to you and Lee as you take this journey. Brigette
