I have been so busy over the last while that I have hardly had time for myself. I have been trying to take some much needed time for myself, but I still have lots to do.
My niece and her dh called me last week and asked me to meet them for lunch at The Forks. They said they wanted to treat me to lunch as my Christmas gift. I met them and we had a lovely visit. I showed them my favorite jewellery store and my niece found herself a pearl necklace and bracelet. Her dh bought it for her, as she said she had always wanted one. The owner gave them a discount, as they were related to me and I was a regular customer. i found a pair of earrings with crosses on them and a little cross to be put on a chain for a necklace. I didn't have much money, so my niece said she would loan me the money and I could pay her back at the end of the month. When were leaving to go home my niece's dh said that I would not be paying them back for the jewellery, as they were buying it for me. It was so thoughtful of them.
I went to a concert at the casino with some friends from church, and they treated me to dinner before the show. We had a lovely evening.
Today I went to the doctor for my checkup and my blood pressure is 120/69. My doctor was very pleased. I met my SIL for lunch afterward. She treated me to lunch as a birthday present (my birthday is next month), and she gave me a lovely praying angel as a Christmas present.
I have been struggling trying to make ends meet lately, but God keeps showing me that He is taking care of me just like He told me He was. I am so richly blessed.
I am also very richly blessed by all the wonderful friends I have made on Spark People. I met a couple of them recently, and we have an extra special bond.
Every time I think about my problems, I always try to remember that I am very fortunate and there are others worse off than I am. I hope all my wonderful Spark Friends are having a good week.
