I'm blessed with medical & prescription care for my fibromyalgia & other conditions, I have a loving husband of 25 years who is in reasonably good health, we have secure retirements, healthy kids, grandkids & two wonderful Yorkies! We're renting a darling townhouse in Arizona while we make plans for our future. I can still do enough exercise to get stronger & healthier every day, even if I'm not losing weight yet. I wake up every day. I have loving & supportive friends. I'm starting to do things I enjoy again instead of just surviving each day.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, ... , body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I feel blessed because my parents are still alive and reasonably healthy. They're both 70 this year and they have both gone through treatment for cancer. Mom had surgery and radiation for breast cancer and Daddy had 2 rounds of chemo and an autologous stem cell transplant for lymphoma that came back very quickly after the first round of chemo put him into remission only temporarily. Now they are healthy and I'm hoping to have them around for quite a few more years.

There was much rejoicing!

I am blessed to with friends and my three good children. Its nice when they go out of their way to do things for us. My youngest daughter calls or texts me every day practically. Its nice that she lives close by and we even have pedicue parties! Haven't done that in a while, but we did go out and get a haircut together. I love it when we do things together. We even shop together. I miss that with my older daughter but she lives 3000 miles away from me. But she calls me every sunday and talks with me and her dad for a good hour or more. My son eventhough he has a busy life raising his three kids, he always jots down a time when he can spend time with us. Even though he works from 50 to 65 hours a week at his business. And when he does all the things he does for us to let us know he cares, I feel really blessed. Like the week it snowed 4 feet, he was right here with his son helping his Dad shovel our driveway out. so we could get to our Dr appointment the next day! I feel so loved!

My favorite verse is Hebrews 13:5
"He (G*D) said to me, I will never leave thee nor forsake me"
Also found in many other books: Joshua 1: and Matthew and in the words of Jesus my Messiah!
I also love reading Sauls-Pauls Roman road!
Favorite verse in the New Testament is :Romans 8:1."There is therefore, NOW, no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.... but after the Spirit! My desire!

My son blessed me and surprised me today..... he fixed my disk drive CD player. It has not worked since day one. (It would get stuck every time we tried to put a disk in it. )

Plus he also surprised me with a New keyboard for my computer. Not that I needed it, but I already wore the keys off two keyboards since i bought this computer ; so he said I will be prepared for when I wear this one out. I have had almost this one for almost a year, this summer, whcih I bought at a rummage sale for $5 dollers. Brand new keyboards cost $10 or 15 dollars! Its so nice when my son blesss me so. He must have gotten a good size bonus to do so much for me becasue its not even my birthday! And he also brought his cable box over to give his Dad a charge on car battery so he could get his car started so he can use it. Its so nice when your kids do small favors (they call them small). But to us they were a blessing. Because we dont alway have the resources for such things any more. I almost felt like it was my birthday! (He not only fixed the Disk drive CD player, but he even paid for the parts ( DVD/ Cd player and the computer keyboard.) And he not only did it for me but for his Mother in laws computer too! I have a good son, dont I? I am so Blessed!
