Beautiful Thursday

I slept in this morning, finally around 11 ish I got up and got my coffee in me before my PA arrived.  I’ve finally accepted that there are just things I can no longer do and having a Personal Assistant is a blessing.

I’m trying to get myself into a normal routine as this past winter I've spent more hours than not in bed due to health issues and the cold weather and I just don’t go together .  I try to remind myself of this daily and that even though I’m learning new ways, with God’s grace and strength.

Today was shower day and then I got to take my ride while the dogs walked, then it was physical therapy time (which I don’t like because it hurts afterwards and exhaust me) but the massage is the best part.  After my PA left, she got me tucked into bed and it wasn’t long and I was fast asleep.  I was completely drained.

Hope you all had a great day and from my home to yours ^^^^

Beautiful Day

Woke up to warm temps & Sunshine.  Had my morning coffee, which gets me motivated and the energy to get going

My PA arrived around 11.30 and assisted me with personal needs and then we went outside for fresh air & sunshine.  My Vit D is low even though I'm taking Vit supplements so on nice days I'm to get outside for a bit

Time goes by fast when I'm outside as I truly love being outside.  Then it was back inside to do my physical therapy (which I am not fond of but I know it’s a must to keep my muscles functioning) Best part is after it’s over I get a good massage!  It takes me time and we have to go slow as I get wore out very easily.

PA got me my afternoon cup of coffee, fixed my dinner and it was time for her leave and it was time for a much need nap for me!  I woke up around 8 PM!  I must of been more exhausted than I realized. Took my bedtime meds, ate my snack. Once again it’s time to say …

Wow, it’s amazing how fast the time seems to go by anymore.  I’d like to wish my DH a Happy 55 birthday today.  It’s amazing how much a few years can change.  Back during the traveling days, couldn’t wait for this day to come so that we could buy into one of the retirement villages in FL.  The plan was to have a permant place there and leave the home on wheels in Illinois where the family is.  Health issues have put a big red STOP on all that.  Although I haven’t given up complete hope on that dream, it’s just being delayed.

I woke up not feeling well, my asthma and allergies are terrible and my back is screaming, it was a ruff night.  I spent my entire Easter day in bed!  I talked to the grand daughter and she sent me pictures of her and her brother enjoying the day.  They went to see their great grandma (DH mom)

They both love the woods like their Papa, Daddy & Uncle Gabe! Daddy took them mushroom hunting but they found something even better!

While many of us take for granted the pleasures we get to spend special holidays with our families there are others that are serving our country and away from theirs.  During this time of uncertainness with so many horrific things happening around the world, I pray & ask God to watch over our military and place his guarding shield around them, so that one day they can return home and be with family that misses them.  I wanted to post a special reminder that is deep in my heart …..

We celebrated the Easter Bunny when my boys were little, but I also taught them the true meaning of why the Easter Bunny brings gift baskets.  The real reason we celebrate this glorious day is it represents Jesus Christ dying on the Cross and rising from the dead, he did so to pay the price that none of us could possibly do, he paid for our sins, so that if we believe and accept him as our Savior we can have everlasting eternal life.  There is no great gift any of us can receive.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

So even though I didn’t feel the greatest, I am still thankful, blessed  & Rejoice that God sent his son to endure torture, death and shed his blood for me & after all that he is Risen!

A honey brown sugar spiral ham was placed in the oven & ham sandwich is what was for dinner.  Since I wasn’t feeling well, eating wasn’t big on the list either.  My day was spent curled up in bed between napping & watching Hallmark.  So from my home & heart to yours …

Easter weekend!

It’s hard to believe half of April is already gone and Easter is almost here. 

I love the Facebook Meme’s like these.  I thought both were fitting for this Easter weekend morning.

There are days I miss the country girl life style but than other days I’m thankful I’m in town now.  With health issues it’s a blessing as I have family who can stop in and check in on me.  My brother Ronnie & his wife Faye are excellent & I don’t know what I’d do without them.  I can call them up and tell them I need something and they pick it up for me.

I have several family & friends who are on deployment and away from home, so I’d like to share this for all those who serve our Nation and thank them for all they sacrifice for my constitutional rights to live in the land of the free.  I am sure at times you wonder about it, with all that is happening around the world and here in our own nation.  May God Bless you all and protect you.  Thank you for your service!

I actually had a pretty good day today and felt well enough to walk the dogs (they walked, I rode my wheels) then I worked outside in my yard, rearranging flower pot and cutting some grass around the edges of things the mower can’t get.  I’m praying it’s still early and not all my flower have started coming up.  I’d work a bit and come in and lay down to rest and then go back outside.  I am still pretty week and wear out very easily so I have to remind myself that when I start feeling tired  have to stop and rest before the tremors start and I pass out.  I spent some  relaxing time outside, working in my flowers. 

It was finally time come inside and get cleaned up and I spent the rest of the evening curled up in bed, resting.  It wasn’t long I was asleep but around 1 am I woke up with a stopped up head and a screaming back!  I enjoyed it at the time but during the night I wasn’t enjoying and thinking what were you thinking?  From my home to yours .

Good Friday

It was a beautiful day when I finally woke up and got around.  I move pretty slow in the mornings and after a long day yesterday I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to get out of bed.  It was a ruff night but by afternoon I felt good enough to get outside for a bit.  I took the dogs on a walk which excited them as it had been awhile.  That was all it took to send me back to bed though.  It exhausted me!

Image may contain: text

Good Friday is a special day & in fact the entire weekend is as I can’t explain how grateful I am that Jesus Christ willing sacrificed himself for my sins, that I couldn’t begin to pay the price for.  It’s humbling for me.  I found this on Facebook and it truly speaks volumes!

This picture showed up in my memories from back in 2012.  This was taken at my dad’s house when he was in his final last days.  My brother Jimmy & sister Cheryl was missing.  It was shared for sibling day yesterday.

My oldest son stopped in to check on his Momma.  Normally even if it’s a quick check in he stops in and checks on me and makes sure I don’t need anything.  Later in the evening my sister in law Faye came over to check on me and I went outside for a bit and visited with my brother Ronnie, sil Faye and her sister Sadie.  We had a nice visit and it was a beautiful evening.

As we celebrate this week, I pray that if you do not know Jesus Christ that you will.  I can’t imagine how enduring some of things I have without him.  I honestly believe his strength and knowledge that one day I will be embraced by my heavenly father is what gives me the will power to continue on with life.

Dentist!

It was a slow moving morning and I had a dentist appointment to get my teeth cleaned.  I have gun disease that runs in my family and so my teeth are done in segments.  Today was a mishap that turned tragedy & into 4 hours! When the tech went to clean my teeth with that electric cleaning tool, one of my teeth exploded due to a unknown hair line crack.  So Yes,  that meant a surgical extraction! Problem was my gums are inflamed and getting enough pain killer to numb my gums just wasn’t happing. A few weeks before when I went I had a reaction to numbing medication and gave them a bit of scare.  None of us wanted a repeat and finally I said, go for it and I will do my best to hold still and take it.  after many attempts the tooth was removed in multiple pieces.  I say it was a blessing as the past couple of days the side of my face had been hurting but  I was blaming it on my MS.

I found this on Facebook & decided it fit how my day had gone, yes I could of been upset because I lost a tooth but in the end, it could of started hurting over the holiday weekend when I couldn’t get ahold of anyone & that would have been way worse.  On the bright side,  just have a sore & tender jaw, that I can handle.

Finally around 5 pm I arrived back home and was ready to hit the bed!  I had planned to stop at Wal-mart but after my appointment I was so exhausted and just ready to get home and sleep!  My evening was spent napping and watching TV.
