Outside My Window....
It is going to be 14 degrees today. Brrr Reports
say that Wed. it will be 30 degrees. We keep joking it
will feel like summer.
I am Thinking.....
About God and Faith. I was talking with a friend during Sunday
services this week. He was telling me that he was reading a book
about Faith. I can't remember the title off hand. He said the book
was talking about how our faith fluctuates and we don't always
realize it. Sometimes are faith is strong and sometime we are questioning
everything. It was a nice reminder to me that we all question sometime
and that I wasn't alone in that. The good news is my faith is on the mend.
I have been filling my prayers with thanksgiving and that has helped
tremendously in how I feel. I suppose if you focus on the negative, that
negative thought will bring you with it.
I still have not gotten the meds situation worked out
yet for my daughter. I hope they get to it soon as her prescription
runs out in two weeks. I'll have to hop on the horn again this week
and get them going.
Daddy seems to be doing pretty well. We have not had anymore
episodes with his hands cramping up. He goes to the Dr. this
Evening so I'll better be able to report after that. He has been
laying around again quite a lot. I finally told him Saturday that he has
to get up and moving. I told him I am not trying to be mean but I
want him to get well and that won't happen if he is collecting dust on
the sofa. I hate to say I have resorted to giving him odd jobs to do but
it gets him moving around more.
As for our diet. Begin again begin again. I took all of our cookies
from Christmas that were left over and gave them to the youth
last night. In an event to rid us of so many snack foods. We had
so many cookies left. I couldn't bear the thought of us eating them all.
So we passed them on. Share the love so to speak.
