Radical Wednesday

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Took Mom to Dr yesterday. She did need medication...lack of estrogen is causing some issues. Started to cry thinking she was going to need surgery. Guess she sits at home and stews about things and gets herself all worked up over things. She complains about things all the time and then it will be better and I find it hard to figure out what is normal and when we need to take her somewhere. Maybe that's why she's been so irritable recently. Hope she takes things properly.

Her daughter finally told her they are moving to Texas in June. Wonder when she would have told her if her niece hadn't asked her about it and Mom asked her? Didn't appear to be upset about it. Tried to encourage her that I am happy they are making a fresh start. It will be good for them.

God and lots of prayer must have helped me because I felt calm with her yesterday and didn't let everything get to me.

Got to do some running for work again yesterday. Love getting out of the office.

Looking at having our room replaced in the next couple of weeks. Will be good to finally working on some projects.

    The larger the family, the more issues we seem to have. So glad you got your mom to the doctor and finding the cause of her problems. Sure hope the meds help her quickly.
Continuing prayers for you and your mom...

Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Got to do running for my boss yesterday and cover another office. Like the diversity. Co-worker has been better. Got the mouse that has been bothering us or at least one of them.

Reading book talking about attitudes....what we think on and how it affects our future, our day, our health etc. Gonna work on attitude and what I think on. Mom on a downer yesteray AM. Interesting how Hubby stopped at lunch and I got her an appointment to see Dr today and she came around by end of day. Likes interaction with us. Just hard to find enough hours in the day to keep her "up". Gonna work on not letting her moods or attitudes affect my days. I let others affect my attitudes, my moods etc. Gonna work on "not" letting others affect me so.

    My daughters tell me to be a duck and let it roll off my back like water rolls off the ducks back.

    May God bless you with the self assurance to accomplish all those things that are positives in your life and stomp out the negatives.

    It is said, you can't change others, but you can change the way you react to them.

Is it possible your MIL knows that her downers bring you and your DH to her? Just asking. I know my MIL used to use it to make us feel guilty and we would end up changing our plans or re-arranging them to suit her.

It's tough, because your all she has and you, as a caring person, responds. Wish there was a way to have a win-win solution.

Take care. emoticon

My Oldest Is 30 today

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Can't believe my son is 30 today! Going to help celebrate his birthday this afternoon. He and his wife just went through fertility process with no kinda down time for them. They so long for a child. I know God in His timing will fill their arms with their heart's desire When it's impossible - that's when God does His work. Then all glory is given to Him - because there is no one else to thank....

    Makes you feel old someone, doesn't it. My oldest will be 40 this year. Rather scary.

Hope your son and family achieve their desire. A child is such a wonderful gift.
