Day 171- (Update with photos) Thankful even when health is challenged

Hi! I hope you are all well! What have you all been doing to keep busy these days? I thought I’d give just a quick update from my end in case you were wondering. Friday, Apr. 17, mix-up on my daughter’s meds; wrong quantity. Called doctor’s office and left a message. Saturday, the 18th, plowed… Read More Day 171- (Update with photos) Thankful even when health is challenged

Day 160- Thankful for sacrifice, especially Christ’s Supreme Sacrifice

“He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 This last month I’ve observed that with all the talk of COVID-19, the news of people dying from it, and the fears associated with that,… Read More Day 160- Thankful for sacrifice, especially Christ’s Supreme Sacrifice

Day 150- Thankful for medical workers, humorous moments :) , and order

Friday I found out that I have swimmers ear; who knew?  The doctor was a little puzzled (yes, I was actually seen in clinic!) because this is not the usual season for swimmers ear, and also, there was no apparent oozing that should accompany the condition.  But, if you’ve been following me for a while,… Read More Day 150- Thankful for medical workers, humorous moments 🙂 , and order

Day 130 – Thankful that someone cared enough to tell me the good news

“We were gentle among you, like a nursing mother caring for her children. We cared so deeply that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God, but our own lives as well. That is how beloved you have become to us.” 1 Thessalonians 2 :7,8 By now most of you… Read More Day 130 – Thankful that someone cared enough to tell me the good news

Day 95 – Thankful things aren’t worse than they are

If you’re one of those people who just hates it when someone says, “At least it’s not worse,” I apologize. But in my own life, there are days where I’m struggling, and the thankfulness airplane just can’t seem to make it off the ground. That’s when I resort to this saying for myself. Last night… Read More Day 95 – Thankful things aren’t worse than they are

Day 86 – Thankful for lessons from tea and that God gives strength to try again

I like to drink tea. Over the years I’ve had several favorites. My loved ones know how much I love tea and sometimes will gift me with specialty varieties or with several boxes of new varieties that they think I might like. At present, I have about 15 different types of tea in my cabinet,… Read More Day 86 – Thankful for lessons from tea and that God gives strength to try again

Day 82 – Thankful that my children and grandchildren make me laugh

A few days ago one of my older daughters brought her daughter over for two nights of “sleepovers”. My granddaughter is 5 years old and still requires LOTS of attention, but she loves to laugh and is fun to be around! A couple of times this weekend, we both had each other almost doubled over… Read More Day 82 – Thankful that my children and grandchildren make me laugh

Day 71 – Thankful to be able to spend time with my children and cook with my son

I love all of my children.  The youngest is 16, and none of them are really “children” anymore.  I’ve invested a lot of time in their lives, but all but the youngest two have moved on with their own lives; that’s the way it should be. I’ve spent a lot of time with my youngest… Read More Day 71 – Thankful to be able to spend time with my children and cook with my son

Day 63 – Thankful for medicines and pain relief ointments

Chronic pain came to live with me a long time ago, uninvited, of course. (I’m not complaining, just explaining.) It started with headaches from heat exhaustion, moved on to migraines, and at age 17 I started having chronic back pain. From the beginning I tried to tough it out or to use other methods of… Read More Day 63 – Thankful for medicines and pain relief ointments
