at the end of the day, all is well...


I do declare, I had my post finished and if I didn't delete it, I ain't sitting here. I guess that is par for the course for me. :) Anyhow I will just write about something else.

We did not make it to the party Saturday night as I was just not feeling good at all on Saturday. Jim was kind enough to bring us over some BBQ and some spicey slaw last night. Jerrell loves BBQ pork,much better than I. I do like slaw and when Jim told me it was spicey and also had his own secret bit of heat in it, I am looking forward to having some for lunch today.

I know for many this is such an exciting time of the year for you, especially if little ones are around. I read where grammie is packing *again* :) to go visit with her son. She has to do lots of traveling in order to see her sons and family. I wish we were still able to make the trip to Ohio, but just ain't feasible for either of us right now. For those that have lost loved ones and holiday happiness is hard to come by, I certainly will remember you in my prayers and may you be soothed with the love of remaining family and friends.

I got hurt deeply by a relative yesterday, but I was taught to respect my elders so I bit my tongue and was as nice as possible in expressing my opinion. I am sure someone's conscious was bothering them later, but with the Lord's help, and the thoughts instilled in me from my grandmother, it wasn't mine.

Oh what would I do without my friends? Sometimes I just stop and think how really blessed I am. Yeah I am sick in body, but my heart is full of love for so many friends and even more now from having met them from this blog. Blogging is the best thing to happen to me and possibly for many of you other folks out there and for that, I say - I love you all. I have read many comments that have lifted my spirits when they were a tad low, but never have read one that made me feel bad. God is good. It may not always look bright, but that fog in life will lift and to our surprise that brightness returns. I am blessed. I love you all. So if you ain't got all your shopping done, get with it! If you have, sit back and wait, ain't much longer...


God Bless!

Yes, I do have to travel quite a bit to see all of my family. I so wish that we all lived closer...but, that isn't to be...

You take care of yourself....feel good and enjoy that spicy slaw! : )
