Keep on keeping on

I'm feeling a little stronger today. It is frustrating when we have so much we not only want to do but have to do... and find ourselves flat on our back for awhile. I did get out this morning for a necessary errand but that left me feeling just a wee bit weary.

So, I've decided to take advantage of not feeling well... propping myself on the sofa with a pillow and reading for awhile will be a good way to spend the afternoon. I'm craving pizza.... that is a good sign. I think there is cheese in the frig, do you think I can trick myself into thinking it is pizza? :)

So often we just have to keep going in spite of everything else that surrounds us which would try to rob our strength, not to mention our joy. I have learned to do what I can with what I have at the time... less is better than not at all.

I'll be posting the three book reviews starting tomorrow and the Recommendations post soon. Sigh... I need my sofa.

One thing hubby and I are learning as we age (both of us with diabetes too, though I am not on meds) is that we must work smarter, rather than harder. We might have been able to plunge ahead anyway when younger, but it does not generally work out so well now. And with diabetes, some days you simply have to rest. I also have high blood pressure, and so sometimes my plans are rearranged from that. That is ok, the FATHER knows we are not machines and are frail.

Enjoy the peace and quiet and rest!! Hope you feel better soon!!

Keep taking it easy, my friend, until you have your sea legs back.

So true! How about a little english muffin pizza? I make those for my daughter and she loves them.

Feel better soon!

Hugs,

Being sick is the pits - but keep your chin up. You'll be feeling better in no time, I'm sure!

I sure hope you feel better soon, Brenda. I'm happy for you too that you got to go on your trip to New England, (and gorgeous upstate New York-shameless promotion there-forgive me).
