God will take care of you!

Monday, July 21, 2014

I just bought 3 nice hairclips last night at the local night market. I was about to put them with the rest of my hair accessory collection when a still, small voice said to me : "surely you don't need so many hairclips, give one to your friend! Surely you can spare one! Don't be so selfish!".

Apparently, the said friend has been wanting a hairclip because she doesn't have enough of them. So, you see, God cares and looks after EVERYONE, no matter how small our needs!

    What a wonderful thoughtful thing you did. I am sure your friend enjoyed it. Sharing with others is a wonderful blessing to both you and your friend.

Worried of impending death......

Friday, July 18, 2014

I have been on dialysis for about 10 years and am very likely to be on it for the rest of my earthly life. But statistically studies show that dialysis patients normally live to at the most 20 more years. So, I probably have 10 more years to go before I meet Jesus, my Lord.

I am worried about my parents. How will they feel? I know they love me very much by their overprotectiveness and concern for me. In Chinese culture, the eldest daughter is usually the one who looks after their elderly parents but what if I am summoned by Jesus before I can even do that?

I want to be prepared and at least make my will but they don't even want to talk about it! What must I do for them before I get called Home?

    You have a great heart. No one knows what day will be their last. You just keep being you, loving God and help others. God will take care of your parents too. Just enjoy the time you have and let God handle the rest. :) emoticon

    Hi Elaine,
I am going to make this short and precise. Do not worry but look to Jesus for He will take care of everything for you! Keep on hearing and hearing God's word everyday. In doing so, the Holy Spirit will guide you on what you should do.
Take care & God Bless you & your family!

    You do not know what is to come...no one does! Take it a day at a time and remember they make medical breakthroughs all the time! Do not make whatever time you have full of worry...and let your parents deal with it as they will.
If you want a will you can have one without your parents involvement, do what you need to!
Make the most of the time given....it may. Be much longer than you think!
Hugs and Love!
Peace
Mary

    I agree with those advising to go ahead and make your will. Also get a medical power of attorney in place and have a person you can trust to follow your wishes rather than be swayed by their own emotions. Then take one day at a time. Do your best to follow medical advice but also enjoy each day.

    LIVE FOR THE DAY!!! emoticon emoticon Enjoy your time with your parents, we do not know what tomorrow brings. emoticon You could lose your parents tomorrow. I think it is prudent to get your will in order but that is true of everyone, be sure you have medical power of attorney in place. This does not have to be a parent, a close friend or sibling that knows your wishes is a good choice. Remember to dance. emoticon emoticon .

  I was a hair away from stage 4 kidney failure. It started when my cardiologist changed one... ONE med. My nephrologist told me I would never get better. Now my points have risen 18 points, and tho I'm still in stage 3, I have great hopes of getting to stage 2. Never give up hope. That being said, prepare yourself for the eventuality we all face some day. See an attorney. Make up your will the way you want, and add to it power of attorney for health care incase you can no longer make decisions. Your parents do not have to know you've done this, much less be involved in the process. They are in denial of your illness and it helps them to cope with it. Best of luck with your future. My prayers are with you.

Definitely live one day at a time. Medical research is improving every day and treatments and cures are with us before we know it. I can understand why you'd want to make sure all of your business is order, it's only prudent. Do what you need to do and make sure you are satisfied that your affairs are all OK and then concentrate on yourself. You just never know what's around the corner

    No one is guarenteed any amount of time, so like Wendysparks says: enjoy today, don't focus on or worry about when you will pass away. You could very well outlive your parents. Are you eligible for a kidney transplant? Even if not, medical science gets better every day.

Enjoy your life, enjoy time with your family and when the time comes, we will all enjoy Paradise with God in Heaven.

Best wishes!

Shopping on a Budget!!!

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I did a good deed today. I introduced my excellent hairdresser to someone who badly needed a good haircut! He gave her a very stylish short style! She was very happy with it, and I felt happy to know that I have given my stylist another client!

After that, I took a train to my favorite mall. Actually, I have a few favorite malls, but I had to go to this one to collect my membership card at the discount bookstore. I also got a new book, more Peter Rabbit stories, but this time by a different author. I got free membership because I bought the entire works of Beatrix Potter earlier this year for a very good price!

Then I spotted some very nice natural crystal broaches with parrot charms! I bought 4 for the 4 Muslim nurses in the dialysis center. I keep my shopping to below RM60! I didn't go to the knitting supply store in the same mall on purpose, because I know that if I see some nice yarn or patterns, there goes more money!

I'm really happy I only spent on the absolute necessary, and not stuff I don't want or need!

Feeling Good After Workout then a Shower!

Sunday, July 06, 2014

It was another hot, muggy day and I just didn't feel like working out but I made myself do it anyway! I picked a short 25 minute Jane Fonda workout, convincing myself that it will be over before I know it! 25 minutes! Just 25 minutes!

Well, 25 minutes later, I was done! And sweaty! I then took a cold shower and washed my hair. I feel so good now! I have to keep reminding myself of how good I always feel after a workout to motivate myself everytime!

Ever feel lazy about working out? Just do it anyway!

    Same for me. I get on the treadmill and think, 'It's only for 45 mins" and before I know it, I'm done, sweating and ready for a shower. Love those days!

    I always feel much better after a work out and shower. I sometimes like to go dip in the hot tub after I shower off the sweat and cool down a bit. The hydromassage feels good and helps relieve any soreness or prevent it.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
