    Sweet! (pun intended) :)
    Just yesterday, driving past an ice cream shop, I thought about indulging in the pleasure of a big bowl of ice cream just for fun. I'm trying to lose weight and have avoided ice cream. But I thought, it wouldn't hurt to enjoy it once with my Dear Daughters! :)

  2. Yay, Barbara! Your comment took! I also got your email with CHOCOLATE in the subject line. Comment every day for more entries, and I hope others will try too. Have an enjoyable weekend. <3

  3. What a great marriage; chocolate and ice cream. Had some oral surgery this week, so ice cream was just what the doctor ordered. Ok, if I have to!

  4. Ahhhhhh! Chocolate ice cream : the ultimate comfort food!!!

  5. when im feeling sad or down i turn to ice cream and pig out makes me feel better for some reason

  6. Chocolate is a BLESSING! Love you Ferree Hardy!:)

  7. I scream, u scream, we all scream for ice cream! LOL! I figured that between ice cream and chocolate we'd cover just about everyone's favorites! :) Don't forget to email me your contact info---each comment is an entry for our drawing, yay!

  8. The picture alone that you posted is too tempting! I'll make sure to have my chocolate fix today:) Thanks for the reminder!!


  9. Ice cream does seem to make everything better! Now that it is warmer out I have to be real careful not to stop and my favorite soft ice cream shops! Add chocolate to that and you have it made!Thanks for the fun post. BTY I am reading your book and it is the best I have one for widows that I have read. Wish I had it a long time ago!

  10. I love chocolate ice cream with nuts, whipped cream, but lately I've been enjoying coconut ice cream too.

  11. What a sweet and refreshing idea!! Thanks for all you do for us.

  12. Gail Reno said What a sweet and refreshing idea. Thanks for all you do.

  13. Oh the thought of Chocolate Ice Cream with Chocolate Fudge brownies mixed in sound so wonderful. Thank you for a chance to win your wonderfulbook and to indulge in chocolate as I begin to read it. Yummy!!!!

  14. Oh how about chocolate ice cream with hot fudge poured over it? Sinfully delicious!!!! LOL!!!

  15. Chocolate Ice Cream on a cone coated with nuts. yummy. thanks Ferree for you all do to keep us inspired on the road to recovery with God beside us.

  16. The memory wall is such a sweet idea. As I read them I feel that each word is from their heart. There is something comforting about talking about the one we loved the most and lost way too soon. Thank you to the ladies that wrote in for June. Gail Reno

  17. widows and church. What a great topic for today. My husband was the pastor. Our church was wonderful, loving and caring. I felt wanted and protected but at the same time it was one of the saddest places to be. I guess that sounds strange. Church is still a happy and a sad place to be. So many memories. But God has blessed me greatly. Gail Reno
