library sale

Friday, August 26, 2011

Went with DD to library book sale after work. I bought a whole big box of used books for $2!! Probably about 20 or so,, hard cover, soft and paperbacks,, Don Drysdales autobiography!! I love biographies!! Ring Lardner..etc.. it was the last day of the sale so not a lot of choices, but I am content..
visited mom, unpacked more vacation stuff,,, lots to do this weekend,, not much time before surgery, must get things hauled around, prepare to close the pool..
counting my blessings..

Thank you to all my friends!

Thursday, August 25, 2011

To those who wished me well on my upcoming surgery, I am grateful. It is not a major surgery, but my livelihood depends on it and the loss of income have me nervous,, having to pay out-of-pocket for it all, does not help. First time I wish I was on public assistance,, too rich(I work and am not pregnant, living with a boyfriend or have little kids) for help, too poor to pay for it all,,,but must get it done..Lose my job if I do not get it, no income for another eight years. but still no assistance allowed!!
Gotta love this administration!!
God will show me and HE always let's me stupidly worry and fret,, my choice of course..

I need more prayers for monetary peace, than medical ....

    Oh, it's not just THIS administration, or even the last one, or the one before that. I left the US in 2000, and I was in exactly the same boat. You know what the French say, the more things change, the more they stay the same. *sigh*

    You're in my prayers. I know the feeling all too well. There have been times when I wondered what we'd eat but somehow the Lord always provides. Be the best person you can be in honor of the Lord and he will reward you. Or, because he's a most wonderful father, simply love Him. All my best,
Sarah
