Sunday and I'm Here... Kinda'
I was hoping to write more about Beauty today but that is not going to happen. Just going out to get something from the deep freeze (that turkey I bought on sale after Thanksgiving) exhausted me and I had to set the brightness on the computer screen to low just to type. I still can't see clearly.
However, it is Sunday and I am HERE!
I thought I would share the photo above after my daughter posted some of her wedding photos on Facebook on her anniversary. Looks at how little Christopher was here! This photo really shows the twelve years there are between my older and younger kids... and yes, he was a surprise. A good surprise but still we didn't think we could have more children. I can't imagine life without him.
When the medications kept me sleeping most of the day, Mrs. Christopher sent homemade chicken soup to our house via Hubby. I had not been eating very much (still not eating much) so I needed good nutrition and oh my, that was the most delicious chicken soup I have ever had.
I need to ask her what the veggies were in with the chicken and stock. I'm pretty sure kale was one of them. It made for three healthy and yummy meals. I was so proud of her and thankful for Piper is "on the move" and getting anything accomplished right now is not easy. Not to mention she is becoming one great cook!
I admit to struggling at times with the feeling that the best years are behind me. It was particularly strong during these weeks of illness. However, God has been reminding me that whatever happens here... the best is yet to come. St. Paul told us we cannot even imagine those wonderful things God has in store for those who love Him.
But even then... not even thinking Eternally... we are all in the place on that Journey He has for us right now and in this time and this place. We don't live in the past or the future, we live today. It is Sunday and everyone reading this (even after Sunday) is... HERE. For a reason. Right where He wants us. Knowing our strengths and our weaknesses and our limitations. That should give us all something to ponder this week.
Now it is necessary to close my eyes for awhile. I could use prayer to completely recovery physically and that my eyes recover. Everything is still kinda' blurry, even with my glasses on. Once again, proofreading is hard so grace may be needed.
So many people asked about the garden shoes here and on Instagram. They are fabulous. I already had boots so I didn't need their wellies, the shoes are just right. Reviewers said to order a size up if you wear a half size shoe like I do and they were right. Especially if you will be wearing socks. (Although I've found garden shoes and wellies don't often fit the same as regular shoes, especially in the heel.)
The shoes are Sloggers and I ordered them through Amazon with credit (thank you!). Info... here. There are other cute options and of course, various sizes..
