Wonderful life

May 08 2012

Iv'e been feeling a bit blue these last few days, yesterday was the exception. Today as I was coming up the driveway with Sheba I looked at our home and realized I have a wonderful life.  Maybe the blues are leaving me. 

Today I woke up with a back ache. It's low and to the sides, like behind my  hips and a little up. my shoulders also hurt, both sides stiff to move.

Tomorrow is clean up day at my friend J's. Her mastectomy is Friday and I still feel the town house needs more than a clean up.  I have one friend and one of my son's friends coming. The young man will be moving boxes and stuff so we can clean around them. Her son packed up the house so much that they didn't leave much to live in. I know he didn't want to pack when they come to move her, but goodness. I have another team going in on Friday. I want to leave some flowers around the house and one last cleaning. She has let me take some books to a used book store. I now feel she is not a hoarder, which is what someone asked. I hope to see her today just to chat and maybe get a copy of her key. I'll be looking in on her cat while she is in the hospital. Then stopping in to check on her for Saturday and Sunday and she won't have to get up and down so much to answer the door. Please Pray for my friend.  

I finally looked into some of the medications I take and the long term side effects. really explains a lot.  Why I'm not loosing my hair, the neuropathy  on the bottom of my feet, my large appetite and my eyes being tired. reading this validates how I feel.  I also see that one thing will effect the all other things. and not necessary for the bad. I do see the tired feeling in  the 3 major things that are wrong with me. So a Good day means a good day in all aspects of the big 3  :)

I have been keeping J in my prayers as well as thanking Our Good Lord sent you to help her...He chose you for a reason...not knowing what the reason is, but it matters not..he knows.
Many prayers for you as her care giver and for her, for her anguish and pain in her heart...
