Shiloh and Star July 4, 2008
I live in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO. I have a wonderful husband whose name is Richard. We were married in Hawaii in 1987 and I was dxd with MS on our first anniversary, 8/1988. I fell while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. We had to end our vacation the next day. But life does go on and I have so much to be grateful and I am. But I really miss the things I used to do.
I. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
A Prayer When in Crisis
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in him.ï¿½Nahum 1:7
God, I feel lost and overwhelmed.
The world seems out of control.
Life has become a nightmare.
Please help me remember that
You made this world and declared it good.
Give me the comfort of Your presence
and the confidence to trust You
even when nothing seems to change.
Calm my mind, bring peace to my heart and
strengthen my spirit to carry on in the midst of loss.
Lay a path for me, and help me follow
Your way as I move
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
Fall Foliage: Autumn, the Season of Change
Leaves begin turning color in the early morning mist as houses and trees are reflected on Big Pond near Woodford, Vt. Woodford State Park has some of the most beautiful natural ponds and spans 398 acres in the heart of the Green Mountain National Forest. In New England, the peak time for Maine and Vermont starts with apple picking during the last two weeks of September. Columbus Day holiday is often associated with peak foliage in Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Get through the day on the right foods and portions.
Get at least 8 hours of sleep. This seems strange but I have trouble sleeping.
Trying to live and eat on a budget.
I am logging all my food for the day and making sure I can (afford) that snack food at the end of the day.
Trying to walk whenever my legs will let me. I try to exercise but I usually experience my MS symptoms at night afterward making it hard for me to sleep.
I am originally from Los Alamos, NM. I moved to CO in 1977 so it is my home.
I have four great grandchildren in FL and three grandchildren here in Colorado Springs.
I love to surf the net, read, watch movies. I walk when able.
I love to meet new Spark People.
I never had any children of my own so I have always had dogs. I love dogs.
