This is just sooooooo hard!

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

I just can't believe it. I put on 5.7kg over the weekend! I am on dialysis and that is a massive weight gain. All I did was drink a little extra water. I also drank some coke while shopping with a friend on Sunday.

I am just beside myself with disappointment! I am so mad at myself! How can I keep my weight down? Stop drinking altogether? Most of the other patients in the dialysis center have little weight gains of below 2kgs! I just don't know what to do!

    You know this happens sometimes. Just stay on your renal diet and the weight will come off. They have to adjust your dialysis solution a time or 2. You can do this. Hugs Pat

    It will be okay - hang in there and the weight will come down. I know how frustrating this can be

    The coke has sodium, so that may account for most of the weight gain.

Saddened over former friend's selfishness!

Friday, August 22, 2014

I had a close friend who was recently pressuring me to invest heavily in this referential affiliate scheme. While I understood where she was coming from, she just didn't or refused to believe that I just didn't have the money!

I told her I needed more time but I was shocked at her pushiness and beligrence. She even asked me to sell my white gold cross that was a present from my Mom. I told her I couldn't possibly do that because it was insulting both my Lord and my Mom. But she took offense and said she wasn't serious.

But I in turn was offended as the cross is precious to me and isn't something to be joked about. To make a long story short, she has broken off our friendship because of this.

I am really shocked at this because I never knew she could be so shallow. Can't I even say "no" to her? Is the business so important to her that she would sacrifice our friendship just because I needed time to gather my funds for the investment? I am really, really disappointed in her!

    Sounds like it was a scam to get money from you and then leave you high and dry with no money at all. So do not get any money for her at all. If they pressure you then it means that money is what is going into their pockets and you will never see it again. You are better off without her. As for the cross she was dead wrong on asking you to do that and she did mean for you to sell it and it also sounds like she is desperate for money too.

    Hi Elaine,

I do believe everything happens for a reason. You did the right thing by saying NO to her. I also believe the Holy Spirit is guiding you in all you do. Praise the Lord for wisdom!

Take care & have another blessed day! emoticon

    I would be wondering if the "investment" is bogus since there was so much pressure put on you. She was not being a friend at all!

    That "person" (note the quotes here!) is NOT your friend, in any way, shape or form! She was *lying* when she said she wasn't serious, IMHO - the fact that pressure was put on you says it all!

Concentrate your time, energy and emotions on the *REAL* friends you have - and consider her shunning of you a *huge favor*!

    Sorry to hear it... I understand your feelings. If the answer to your questions is 'yes' then you're much better off without her...

    Wow! I know what you mean about the cross. My mother gave me one and I will never sell it.
Hate to say, but you are probably better off not having her as a friend.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Counting My Blessings!

Monday, August 18, 2014

I used to blame God and moan and complain constantly because I am on dialysis but now I realize how wrong I was. True, I have a disability but I have also been very blessed. I have my 5 senses, my 4 limbs, my eyesight is still good enough to do my beloved needlework, I have a roof over my head, regular meals everyday..... I could go on! Really. You just have to pause and reflect when you feel down.

God has indeed been faithful to me. I am only sorry it took me so long to see it!

    Hi Elaine, emoticon
I am so happy for you! God loves us all and often, not everyone realize it. This is what Pastor Joseph Prince called Right Believing will lead to Right Living. Indeed, He is always there for us whenever we need Him.
Take care & have another blessed day!

God works in mysterious ways.......

Monday, August 04, 2014

I was supposed to be on church worship duty next Sunday, the 10th of August but I misread my calendar and thought I was on duty yesterday. Turns out that the female vocalist for yesterday didn't turn out at all, both on the practise Saturday and service on Sunday. No phone call either.

So, maybe God made me misread my calendar so that service would go on smoothly. However, I am still on duty next week. But I don't mind! I enjoy singing for the Lord!

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.
