Remember...it all started with this?
Well, I don't have to wear the brace all the time now but
still got issues going on.
But I was able to finish this cuddle sac for my newest Grandson
in time for Christmas! I did 3 rows a day once my hands to where I could
stand the pain. It really made me upset when I realized that I probably
will not be able to crochet much anymore.
I really loved it and I actually found something I could do.
And if I wasn't already in pain, then about 6 weeks ago, I stumped (broke) my toe!!!
I have dealt with it because I knew there was nothing they could do for it until the pain got
so bad, I decided to go to the doctor. She says sometimes broken toes can get infected
and of course, that is what has happened to me. So now I am on meds for the infection hoping that
will work. So I think a little depression set in. Not fun! I even stopped blogging for a while and that
was one of my favorite things to do. I guess you could call my absence a "Pity Party"!
Then I thought of how thankful I am.
I have a roof over my head.
Shoes (well 1 shoe) on my feet.
Clothes to wear & food to eat.
I have family who loves me,
especially my 5 little blessings called "grandchildren!"
And I love them.
I am married to my soul mate and love my life.
We are blessed with a great church family and we have lots of friends that we love.
I also think of my best friend who is blessed to still have her Daddy
with her because of several strokes. I also think of a loved one
who has lost his way and can't find his way back and is struggling.
I think of a woman who just lost her husband.
I think of a sweet blogging & facebook friend whose daughter is going through
so many battles.
I think of my mother in law who is facing some scary tests.
I think of a very close friend
that has been so sick and is still fighting a battle.
As sick as she is, this is her testimony that she posted on facebook:
As I reflect back on 2011 and the last few days of 2010, I know without a doubt that I am truly blessed. I praise God for His mercy and grace and for His mighty power, for He only knows how many times He brought me back from the brink of death and performed many, many miracles on me. If He never touches me again, I know, God is good!! I praise Him!
So as I am feeling sorry for myself because of my little trivial issues, I go and read this testimony
over and over. What an example to me this Godly woman is. Oh if I could have this spirit and attitude. This is my hearts desire. It is not about me....It is all about HIM.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
P.S. Thank you all for your cards & emails letting me know that you miss me!
Thanks to "the honeymooners" too for missing my blog!
