I have fibromyalgia & arthritis. some days are better than others but as my guy use to say. "All days are good some are just better."

It is a blessing to be able to spend time with the nursing home residents, I just don't get anything else done. This morning I washed dishes, ran sweeper & made some soup. I need to get some laundry done & get the trash out for pickup.

I appreciate the prayers.

Thanks so much for the prayers. I am only going to work 3 days next week. I have a dr appointment one day & I need to get back to water therapy. I ask the administrator how much longer he would need me & he did not seem to know.

We were to have an ice storm during our food pantry. I am so glad we did not get ice. I hate to even think about driving on ice emoticon .

I made a banana bread yesterday using a Healthy Exchange recipe. It turned out really good. I ordered an electric throw from Amazon. It is nice to have a warm body while I spark.

My granddaughter flew to Colorado earlier in the week. Her fiancée had a conference & she went to help him. He is in a wheelchair. Their flight was delayed & they missed the bus to Boulder. They called a cab but it didn't come. A security cop heard of the situation & called a bus back to get them. Boulder had a huge snowfall. She was so grateful for the kindness of the cop. I am thankful, too.

What is going on in your world?

I see the opposite happen. The ones with the most needs get the fire put out-and all hands on deck approach. Ones who are just struggling like everyone else get minimal effort. I feel bad for those because often times successful intervention could be the key to getting them through it all.

Sometimes I feel bad because those with the most needs get the less help and then people wonder why they do not progress. Many times the trained staff are only supervisors and people without the needed skills are expected to help people change- it is all about $. emoticon

You are so right. I am FB friends now with many of the families that I once served as family advocate. Some are doing well. It really breaks my heart when I see or hear of others that are making wrong choices. The temptations are so much more readily available than when I raised my family. It is really hard to be a good parent & you really need a lot of support & encouragement.

Families need a lot of help. Too much work causes the staff person to not be able to really help families. It is very sad.

I know the agency I worked for has cut back on social workers. I was in charge of 36 children & their families. I retired in 2012 & they replaced me for one year. Then they gave the other family advocate in the building all the kids which would be 36. I don't know how she is getting it all done. I worked with Head Start kids/families.

I am retired. I am wondering if anything new is going on in the word of social work?

Any grants or new ways of helping people?

Hard day but remembering God is Faithful, He is Always on His throne, and He keeps His promises. Choosing to make healthy eating choices instead of emotional eating, and going to the gym tonight because endorphins rock!
