Updates & Prayer for Ginny Smith

Hi Everyone,

The past three months have brought gradual strengthening and change.  When I look back I can see it much better than when I look day by day.  I had my first haircut yesterday.  It was a challenge to work with the new naturally curly look I am sporting.  However, my hairdresser did a good job of styling it so I no longer have the “Little Orphan Annie” look. 

 Today was a significant, one of a kind, and heartwarming day.  I spent the morning with Valencia friends at a brunch to celebrate my retirement.  We reminisced, laughed, and enjoyed being together.  I felt so appreciated and affirmed.  It was the best retirement party I have ever attended.  My daughter said it was probably because it was mine.  Such wisdom!!

Dr reports and  blood work continue to be normal.  Praise God for continued health and strength!  I am so very glad to be feeling “normal”.  What a change from a year ago. 

Thank you to you all for your encouragement, prayers, and love expressed.





  1. I am so glad you are doing well! You will continue to stay in my prayers!

  2. Hi Ginny
    Well, summer is officially here and I am checked out of my room. I am ready for a vacation. Hurray!

    I was just thrilled to be part of your wonderful retirement party on the 8th! It was so fun to see everyone and to celebrate with you. I agree, it was the nicest retirement party I had ever been to, also!

    Have a grand summer and I hope we can get together! Thanks again for the great party. I have some pictures that I am sending you so look for them in the next few days.

    Love to you and Don,
