I have finally become a dot net thanks to our daughter and son-in-law. A gift from them was to pay my annual fee and our daughter set it up for me.
This spring has been extremely busy. He and I took a trip to San Dimas to see our son, his bride and our little California Dream. Then our daughter and and son-in-law welcomed our Yellow Rose of Texas into the world. Dream came to Texas to meet her little cousin. I had a grand couple of weeks!
I haven’t quite caught my breath from all the goings on over the past couple of months. Every weekend has been packed with activity. Evenings have been busy, too.
I have reached my step off point. I am not feeling well at all. Time to do some tending to me. Tonight will be a super hot bath and a long stretching session. Some pain reliever and an early lights out are in order as well.
Tomorrow is iffy for the 9 to 5. If the morning starts like this one, I’m out.
But, my Physician is with me. He will provide the healing required in His time.
Not much else to say right now. Just figured it was past time to set words on the screen. Especially with my new identification as rainingorchids.net.
The past few weeks have been trying. Several areas of my life have been in turmoil. I came home early from the 9 to 5 Monday. I couldn’t stop crying.
I did what was needed to manage the situation. A little dinner, a little nap, a lot of Scripture and prayer. By the evening, I was better. Drained, but better.
Tuesday was better and today is going fine. Tomorrow is Friday Eve. So all is well.
The weekend holds promise for a blessed time with the clowns…I mean the girls. Our party theme is clowns and our menu is salads. I am going retro with a Jell-O molded shrimp salad. I was thinking maybe my aunt’s Southwestern Salad would be a good one, too.
I should not have been so down after Saturday’s adventures. Fishing, breakfast at the lake, a nap, a buggy ride at the lease. He and I had a great day. I was feeling ill on and off all day Saturday, though. I still don’t know if I was stressed and depressed or fighting a real illness. That is the thing about the depression. It simulates the symptoms of a cold or the early stages of the flu. Body aches, fatigue, fuzzy head. I usually manage the thoughts and feelings pretty well. Especially the thoughts. The feelings and the body symptoms are the difficult part to manage.
A lot of prayer, some rest, some talking to golden friends, his nurturing love, His nurturing Love, all worked together to put me on track.
The cherry on top was a short video of a high-kicker from Cali! That made everything grand, again! Funny how grands will do that!
I cannot overstate how grateful I am for the healing I have experienced the past few years. Recovering from the devastating grief our family has suffered has been a slow process. I still reel from it if I let myself think too much about who is missing in our lives. But, the future is full of hope. The future is full of beauty. The future is full of love. All the love from all the past loved ones will continue into the future through our generation to the next.
I recently read a book that asked what I would want to be remembered for at my passing. I hope I am remembered for believing in love and the power it holds to restore and renew and prosper the mind, heart and spirit.
