Ready to run away ….

My plan is to have a fabulous day!  Yesterday was a stressful day!

Image may contain: text

God has allowed me to wake up & enjoy another day on this earth & instead of letting yesterday get to me, it’s a new day & time to start fresh!  I’m enjoying my morning coffee. Esp enjoying the peace & quiet, if I could just get the dogs not to bark at every little thing they see with the door open.

These inspirations fit into my life right now.  There are days I wouldn’t make it through without God’s strength.  God is my strong tower that holds me up & the fortress I look to in knowing that I am not alone.

I don’t know about you but this fits my life.  I’m thankful but regretful that I’m not always as faithful as I should be.  I let too many things interfere at times with my study time, with my prayer time, with my relationship with my heavenly father.  So tonight I Pray this prayer.

The grand kids spent the night last night but went home this morning.  It felt good to have a day of peace & quiet.  My PA showed up and we got a walk in but no working in the yard as it was just too humid & hot for me.  I got a good shower, got a clean bed and even splurged on a Pepsi!

It’s that time & my bed is calling me, so from my home to yours ….

Kitties are here!

It’s another sunny hot Saturday

This is very fitting today as my Momma cat was meowing and staying close to my bed most of the day and finally she decided the time was here and you got it, she had was in labor & the first little black kitty was here.  She had a total of 6! Yes, I still have the last 5 she had in March!  I’m now the owner of 11 kittens & one mama cat!  This litter is not staying! They have to go to good homes.  Momma will be getting fixed!

My son & grandson was here to visit for awhile and for me it’s another day of staying in bed resting up.  I’m feeling better but still very weak!

Happy 30th Birthday to my baby boy & MS tremors

Happy 30th Birthday Gabe!

Image may contain: text

30 yrs ago today I was in the hospital getting ready to give birth to my youngest son Gabe.  If only I knew then what I know now as a parent.  We don’t learn from others mistakes but our own.  We can’t protect our kids even though we are wiser and been through things they are walking through.  It’s just like letting them learn to fall down to learn to walk, the same is with letting them learn life’s lessons even during adulthood.  No matter what your children do or don’t do you love them no matter what.

I needed reminding that we are to have courage & humble ourselves & God with lift us up.  It’s hard to be encouraged or to humble ourselves at times during life events but I also know the reward is worth it & God is always beside me.. These are both words of wisdom I needed today.

There are times I'm more ready than not for this day to come esp when life throws us curves.

This came across my FB and I know I needed a caring hug and so I wanted to share it on my blog today, for anyone who may also need one. 

Image may contain: text

Sometimes we may not feel like it but we are special & God is good to all of us. It’s our choice if we allow him to stand beside us during our hard times.

I’ve decided to remind myself how blessed I am, I may not be rich, I struggle with health issues but I'm still blessed.  There are many in the world that are worse off than I am.

I didn’t speak to my son today but he is with me in thoughts.  I hope his birthday fishing trip goes great and he enjoys his birthday weekend.  I would like to wish you all ….

My PA came but I don’t remember much of it as I wasn’t feeling well (haven’t for several days) she may not want to come back after dealing with my MS tremors & heart stopping.  When I have these all that can be done is get me in a setup resting position and let my body rest (sleep) & recover.  It’s my body’s way of saying enough, no more, shut down & recoup!  That is exactly what I did all afternoon, evening & night!  I slept!

What if?

Image may contain: text

The sun is shining and I’m determined no matter what to make it a good day.  I woke up & enjoyed my morning coffee, then I did a little bible study (which always makes me look at things differently)

This popped up on my fb this morning.  I sat & ponder this?  Gives new meaning to prayer & being thankful??

My PA came, got my shower & took my walk.  I look forward to the days I get to go on a walk.  It feels great to be able to get out of the house and I enjoy the walk as much as my dogs do.  I love spending time outside but the heat is just too much for my MS.  My sister in law came over later and I went outside, I stayed outside too long as the heat just saps all my energy.  It get’s frustrating that the weather can control how you feel.  humid, hot weather exhaust me, wet, cold causes me severe pain?  Yet I’m stuck in it all.  Due to being wheelchair bound, there is no way I can travel in the home on wheels.  If only …

July 12th

I just love Momma Giggles on fb.  You will find I enjoy sharing many things she post & when I need a laugh I can find it on her page.  I just couldn’t resist sharing this …

Image may contain: text

Today is a new day & I've decided not to let yesterday news keep me down.  There is nothing I can do about it, other than Prayer, so I have decided to pray to God, leave it at his feet & know that he will take care of it for me.  I have faith that through him all things are possible.

My PA came today and did some house keeping for me, she also watered my flowers for me. JW church ladies came to visit.  Today we got into the deep discussion of what their belief & mine is and where we disagree.  They tried to persuade me to their beliefs but I wasn’t having any of it.  I love our bible study we do and the discussions we can have but I’m strong in my beliefs and what God’s word teaches me.  I have to admit, them coming to see me, makes me dig deeper in my studies.  It’s easy to get side tracked and let bible study pass on by.  Esp with the day of internet when I find hours pass by and I’ve done nothing else.  I have a hard time reading a book due to my eyes and the computer is much easier as I can make the screen bigger.  A tablet is on my wish list to install books on for more reading.

I haven’t felt good all week long and most my week has spent in bed, I've barely worked in my poor flowers.  We’ve had a dry summer and it’s been hard on them, then with me not feeling that great.  I normally keep them all weeded but I’ve fell behind this year with them.

Happy Birthday to me!!


Image may contain: bird and text

Today I turned 51 and at times it feels like 71?  I started my day as any other day with my morning coffee & trying to get myself moving before my PA showed up.  Wow, it’s going to be a humid hot day! 

Image may contain: text

I’m not complaining about the heat as I personally prefer the heat over the cold but this cute meme says it best on how many are probably feeling, esp those who work outside.

I’m grateful for the beautiful sunshine day to celebrate my b'day, I got to see both my children & grandchildren spent the night with Grammy.  Just disappointed with some thing I learned today.  

Image may contain: flower and text

Today’s inspiration is what I'm holding tight today.  I know we live in a imperfect world, imperfect choices & forgiveness is something we must do but we do not have to  induce ourselves to others bad choices in life & it’s just something we have to learn to accept no matter how disappointed we are.  All I can do is pray & leave it in God’s hands, have faith that my God will take care of the person & in the end all things will bring about good for his will.  So for now I will always Love the person I know they truly are, just not the person they are choosing to be at this point in their life .. Instead I choose to distance myself & ….

and remind myself of this ….

I was blessed to get so many b'day wishes on fb & it was nice when I finally logged in for the day to feel loved. Though today I felt like I'm always the one who has to be the bad guy in situations that needed to be said or done.

Steve put to rest today

Image may contain: text

I woke this morning with thoughts of my dear friend Steve.  Some were laughter, beautiful memories & sadness to think that until we meet again in heaven I won’t see his smiling face.  He had moved to back to Washington, D.C.  Steve was from Ukraine, served over 20 yrs in the USA military.  The military sent his remains back to hi family in Tennessee where his children lived, he wanted to be buried in the military cemetery.  His family was holding a private service today and though I’m not there in person, my heart has been with him most of the day.

Today’s inspirations go with how I am feeling.  I know that God hears my prayers, knows my needs & I’ve always been able to count on him.  Though there are things at time I do not understand, I know that all things good or bad for those who believe

This sure can be true at times!  I have found when people here you are a Christian than they expect perfection when we are the opposite!  We are human, we all make mistake, sometimes the walk does fit this meme

My PA came today and it felt great to get a good shower, the dogs were thrilled to get a much needed walk.  The grand kids didn’t come visit so they didn’t get any walks.  After my shower it was back to bed as the temps & humidity were getting to high for any other outdoor time.  I spent my evening watching Christmas movies on Hallmark movies & mysteries.  Yep, I'm looking forward to Christmas in July with Hallmark!
