Our big parade is today with a lot of green beer, 5K runs, Wee leprechaun runs, lots of green.. people in Ireland actually do not even recognize green as their color,, Only Americans.. (Interesting factoid).My dad used to take us to the parade when we were small, but as I got older, it was just another way to make me cold. We got more snow last evening, it is in the 20's.. The real Saint Patrick is all snug and cozy in heaven,, warm too.. I chose to go bargain hunting with DD. We went to three stores and should be pretty well set for now.
I was all bundled up and still freezing..
This week DD will call and confirm her appt. with U of M and get her instructions for meds ahead of time.. I will have the day off, so that part is taken car of for now.. I hope to get in some steps when we go down there,, I have never been to the actual hospital,,but I know it is a world renowned one and huge.
I am not sure if we are going there or to the health center in a nearby town like last time.. the biopsy should determine what their next plan of action will be. I am not stressed, know that God is in control..

A lovely cold snowy day in this third week of March. No way are we going to the St.Patricks day parade tomorrow.. It is the largest one north of Detroit, but not the warmest.
Today is another day of sorting and packing things at dad's house, got a class at four p.m. just fo ran hour.. Thank you again, noraspat, for the lovely snowflake you gave me, we got another inch of snow last night.. Perfect. More shoveling..
Five more days of winter,,,

When I first came to this site, I went through the steps to setting my page up, asking questions, trying to do the tech things without looking like an idiot..
I charted planned, measured, etc,,
Now, everybody here knows that they could do everything on this site alone, in their home,, but did they?? Of course not, ,, we came to this site out of curiosity, out of sheer desperation, and little did we know that we needed more things than charts, menus, journals,etc.. We need each other, we need assurance, humor, understanding, kudos, friends, new of course, security of anonymity, venting, sharings,,,,
we need each other,, period.
If my motives are pure, I should get what I need from this site, but just as important, I should be contributing on an even keel or above.
I should have learned by now that Chris Downie did not HAVE to share his blessings with anybody. He made a conscious choice to share with others, to give of his windfall, as it was given to him.
I should be passing the plate, but I should be making it heavier with my blessings as I go along. No group can stand alone with all taking and no giving.
Chris has wisely thrown the ball down the alley and let us go with it.
Please try to add something positive to somebody else's day each day, no matter how bad your day is.
Giving to another will enrich a person a thousand fold.. a surety.

One treat for me on tv is to watch Joyce Meyers before leaving for work in the morning.. This morning was one that I was home late enough to see her.
I am a born and bred devout Catholic, BUT I was introduced to her tapes while in another program years ago.. I receive her books for gifts and I love her and her devotion to my Lord. Some people in my parish tell me not to get too deep in her lectures or Bible study. I know how things are today, how life presents challenges, the devil in person. I know that my faith is helping me continue to grow in spite of being this erring human that I am.
I have been through a lot of life's challenges that she has and can relate to how she works to change herself as best she can, despite being a world renowned evangelist. I have not wavered in my faith because I listen to her and read her ways of relating to the Scripture to get through my daily life.
I know my faith has strengthened because I am able to glean what she has and what she has been given by God, and add to that, my spiritual upbringing and let it work through me to be able to work on my faults.
One of these faults was pointed out to me today at work,, I need to be open to humility if I am to grow inside as HE intended for me .. growth is ongoing,,
Anybody with perfection as a goal is a fool.. (my quote)

Another blizzard,, wind chill 17 degrees. Spring is almost here,,I remember years that we could not get to church on Easter Sunday for the huge drifts on the roads,, two foot snowfalls..
Called trust attorney office to set up a synchronized phone call between him and CPA doing trust taxes.in an hour or so,, trying to get laundry, dishes, paperwork ..got to d//c dad's phone in their home and get to credit union, change my internet, phone and tv to a bundle.. not enough hours in the day,,
I tried out my new little steam mop I bought last weekend. Tried it in the full bathroom.. it really heats up quickly and gets the floor clean, BUT I will still have to soak the white grout with bleach first.. cannot wait to get two minutes to rub together so I can use it on my kitchen floor and the hardwoods in the bedrooms!! A new toy for Linda!!! See how pathetic my life is?? Jumping for joy about a cleaning mop.... I feel so glamorous.
