Day 250- Thankful my rib is healing

Perhaps some of you have noticed that I’ve not been very active in the blogging world during the last several weeks.  It all started when my daughter and I drove to my sister’s house to help my sister take care of our mom.  During our last week there, I fell and hit my rib. Hard.… Read More Day 250- Thankful my rib is healing

Day 242- Thankful for Negative Test Results and Kind Doctors and Funeral Directors

I’ve still been trying most days to walk the walk of thankfulness. My thoughts have been so scattered lately whether I’m walking in thankfulness or not. The last two weeks have been interesting, to say the least. Two weeks ago, I was exposed to someone who ended up testing positive for COVID-19. The next few… Read More Day 242- Thankful for Negative Test Results and Kind Doctors and Funeral Directors

Day 188- Thankful God sees our invisible pain and illness, and He cares

I’ve lived with invisible illnesses for years, the kind that doctors write off as not worth their time, a product of stress, or something that must not exist because it does not fit into the paradigms of the general population. I’ve had hidden pain since I was 17, not including the migraines that started before… Read More Day 188- Thankful God sees our invisible pain and illness, and He cares

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 125 – Thankful for time spent in community, for beautiful days and pain relievers

Sunday morning was definitely a little harder to get up. My granddaughter got overtired  yesterday and had trouble getting to sleep when bedtime came around. But, when I told her that we were going to be late for Sunday school, she immediately got her breakfast ready to go. I was glad to see that it… Read More Day 125 – Thankful for time spent in community, for beautiful days and pain relievers

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

Day 48 – Thankful for the benefits of physical and spiritual exercise

For years I did not see the purpose of weight lifting for myself. I did the weight machines for a short class in college, but it did not interest me enough to continue on. Then I started having pain that landed me in physical therapy, and I started to understand a bit more. Recently, my… Read More Day 48 – Thankful for the benefits of physical and spiritual exercise

Day 35 – Thankful that Jesus loves me even when others do or say unloving things

It’s been a good day, really! But you know how sometimes you can feel fine, but you have this little rock in your shoe that’s really bothering you, and you just have to stop asap and get it out? Sometimes that’s the way I feel about unkind things that people say. Maybe they’re not even… Read More Day 35 – Thankful that Jesus loves me even when others do or say unloving things
