A friend sent this message to me via e-mail and I have already sent it on to many friends. But I thought I would share with my spark friends as well. It is okay with me if you repost it on your blog or send it on.

"With God all things are possible Matthew 19:26 Twenty angels are in

your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, one is reading

this message. Please read.... not joking.....God has seen you

struggling with something. God says itís over. A blessing is coming

your way. If you believe in God, send this message on, please don't

ignore it, you are being tested. God is going to fix two BIG things

tonight in your favor. If you believe in God, drop everything and pass

it on. Tomorrow will be the best day ever. Send this to ten friends,

including me, if I don't get it back, I guess Iím not one of them. As

soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise


At our Halloween party at the Yacht Club, one of the women ready my palm as she does a bit of this. She said I had a guardian angel, I was artistic, and something else which I can't think of right now. But the guardian angel ideas was certainly a gift and nice to think I did have one.

    I believe we have guardian angels because of some unexplainable events in my life! Most when I was young and my heart was really open and really let myself feel what was near. It was so powerful that no one could convince me otherwise!

Two weeks ago MIL had settled in and was doing well here at the home. But that saturday she took a turn for the worse. I was concerned about her and almost called 911 but I put her to bed with her oxygen and she laid on her back all night. The next morning at 5:00 a.m. we heard her call for us. We went in and got her to the toilet but she was gasping for breathe and could not get up off the toilet. We had to call 911 and they took her to the hospital where she stayed for 3 days. She was so weak and could not get out of bed. In addition, she was put into a diaper and was wetting herself which is so totally unlike her. This woman is from Maine and very stoic and won't give up so to see her like that it was scary. So the doctor recommended she go to the nursing home for a couple of weeks for therapy and to get stronger. She did not want to go but we insisted. And she is doing well. She is now able to walk from her room to Physical therapy which is quite a ways and she works on her legs and arm repetitions. We feel she may come home next week after they review her on Wed.
So we have her back again. I guess this is how it is going to be, up and down. She has congestive heart failure and a pacemaker was put in 3 years ago but CHF will continue to take a toll on her. My husband went up and visited with her yesterday and they did word puzzles together. We will take one of the dogs to see her today. The weekends are quiet.
Tomorrow is my grandsons 3 year old birthday and I have to finish binding the quilt I made for him. I am exhausted as I didn't sleep well last night.

    Keep the faith, with physical therapy she will get stronger. The key will be to get her to continue her physical therapy once she gets home. You might try in home therapy if you can, if not maybe try making it fun and doing it with her! Good luck, I hope she sees how much more independent she is while doing it now and will want to keep working at it!

When I was up at 1:00 this morning and could not sleep, I checked my e-mail and found this article from zehabits. It's entitle 15 EXCUSES NOT TO FORM THE FITNESS HABIT. Pretty interesting it was and so I thought I would share. This moning I am going to the YMCA for Women on Weights orientation. It is a class for women to instruct on use of weights. I hate going to the gym because I feel stupid and don't like to work out in front of people so I thought this sounded perfect. I plain don't like to work out but right now, I am feeling the need to beat the stuffing out of something. emoticon

    "They say" that working with weights and doing strength-training does more to prevent bone loss than just about anything else you can do. After my surgery I'm scheduled to get a gym membership, something I've never done. I'm worried that, after five minutes of whatever the trainer has me doing, I'll be ready to crawl home, exhausted. What I look like? I don't give a cr*p - if the workout does what I need it to do (increase my strength, endurance and flexibility) then it's all good, thinks me. You notice I'm not planning on running any marathons, lol! So I say go for it, hon--!

So four more years of hope and change. It will be change all right, change to our country that may never be altered. We will pay more taxes, some in hidden ways. Obamacare will change the best healthcare system in the world. We have a president who lies, who covers things up, who doesn't support the military, who doesn't accept responsibility for anything, and did I say he lies? He will be out playing golf whenever possible and his wife will be flying around the world, spending $75,000 a day with an entourage of her friends. The USA will become a socialist country and the constitution will be demolished. At least I can say that I was not one of the stupid ones who fell for his rhetoric and lies. This is a sad day for AMericans.

    For those of you who have a heightened level OF FEAR...I feel for you.
I do wonder though WHAT have you thought about what's been going on FOR ALL THESE YEARS?
Buildings being grounded by terrorists and airplanes.
Young Americans CHILDREN fighting a war over OIL.
I would guess people are sick and tired of things LIKE THAT ALREADY.

But hey...
We could go on forever talking about WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN...
We could go on forever about HOW BAD IT IS...
We could criticize everything our current and former Presidents have EVER DONE.

I don't believe Obama OR ANY ONE PERSON could cure the ills of this country. I believe what the country suffers from is due to years of mismanagement and therefore is incurable. I don't think for a moment he's going to come in with a magic wand and fix it all.

I am a small pea in a huge pod.
I am feel BLESSED EVERYDAY living here...and not some other country REGARDLESS of what I feel about POLITICS.

What I decided is... as a citizen who still loves and enjoys the freedoms I have and always ENJOYED...I am going to the best I can right where I stand.

I don't agree with EVERYTHING Obama is for...or plans.

I haven't and wouldn't disrespect A SOUL calling them anything but their God given name...because I respect MYSELF and even if someone differs from me...doesn't agree with me or the US President I have the sort of dignity that radiants BEYOND disagreement. And in doing so I KNOW that will perpetuate the kind of LIBERTY, PRIDE and UNITY this country sorely NEEDS.

Peace & Blessings to YOU ALL

    Hey this is Carol's son Danny. My mom was showing me these comments, so I had to put my two cents in. I agree with everything said on this subject so far. I told my friend yesterday that this would now become the USSA (United Soviet States of America) under comrade Obama. In Knoxville Tennessee yesterday it was cold, rainy, gloomy, and cloudy. I thought for a minute, and said "even God is depressed that Obama got elected.". My son is the only one I talked to on polatics. We were talking and I said you have to read this blog, I didn't know you had gotten more responses. Hope no one minded if he added his 2 cents. Keep praying. Isn't it scary to think about the book 1984 Big brother is watching you, or the movie Logan's run, both of these was fiction at the time, but are they now.

    I agree that it is a sad day for America. I am concerned about what is going to happen to us, our children and grandchildren, and the country. We did what we could with our vote.

    I'm rededicating myself to being a prepper. I'm fearful for our future as a nation. Our constitution has become nothing more than paper behind a glass. I was appalled to see the electoral college vote in direct opposition to the popular vote in so many states. Did you know there are only a handful of states where the actual individual vote counts? In the rest, the electoral college casts a vote for you because the powers that be don't think Americans are intelligent enough, informed enough or able to vote correctly. We are living in troubled times and I can only see it getting worse, not better.

    So true. I think this country stared going down hill. when they started taking In God we trust out of everything. My grandmother use to say the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer. So many people without jobs, and things are shoved down our throats. Ever read the book 1984, well big brother is watching us. emoticon
