My Corner…

Another worth while day with mom.  I get to spend more time on Sundays,because I have that day off.  Anyway, life is chugging along, they have spaced out her medication, the pain is not like it was in the begining.  Still not walking or able to stand; but in time and with much physical therapy this will be possible.  

All this is what is called adversity, we all eventually go through something of it.  How we deal and handle it is the other thing.  I was watching Dr. Stanleys program on adversity, what he said is so very true…  God does not give you more than you can handle.  He knows what you can and can not, and at which times as well.  I know that if these things had come up at another time in my life, it may have been too much, but God knew, I know I am so much stronger for it.  To God I give all the Glory and Praise!

Well, getting my time in with mom.  that is all that is going on in My Corner.  Enjoy your day.

My Corner…

Today is Thanksgiving 2016, this is the first holiday spent at the hospital.  I feel so lost, sitting here in the waiting room, because sitting there in moms room is a lot to take.  Trying to keep strong and not cry, but who am I fooling; certainly not these tears.  Not myself or even mom.  Here I am though,trying one min at a time.  Looking out over the top of the buildings, nothing but pale blue skies.  A beautiful Saturday, that should be spent enjoying great things with mom, instead here at this place,yeah what memories this will make.

I am not the only one, there are millions of families going through the same things or worse, but when it happens to your family it feels like your the only one.  I know that This family has the love of God, of family and friends, and even people who have just met you.  I write to alleviate the pain of this, it is my outlet, at least with this I can cry and not have to explain why.  It is difficult to talk and keep from tearing up.  Even though I know I have friends that will be there just to listen, no explinations of any kind needed.  I find a kind of solice in writing,something I need to do more of, get back to.  I am scared, I need to get back into the Word, that is what is going to keep me balanced in this time.   

This has been a year of ups and downs, I pray the 2017 year holds nothing but blessings and greatness.  Just writing this, has calmed my soul.  looking out over these buildings, peaceful and calm.  seeing the colors of the trees changing as with this weather.  Hold the the ones you love close and tell them you love them.  We never know how things will change.  Be thankful for all you have and whom you have.  So, now the tears have dried up;and I can see clearly.  Time to get my strength and conquer this fear, to move forward and keep on keeping on, because mom needs to know and feel that we as a family has her, and is onboard with her well being.  That means I need to step up.  To grow beyond what I am, I know I can. 

This has been My Corner…  Until the next time.  Happy Thanksgiving . 

Another year of survival…

From the feast that is known as Thanks Giving.  Yes! I survived the chicken and all the fixins’ the pies as well.  Oh now I am back at work, trying to survive this weather that we are having as well.  This years Thanks was a pretty swell one, this year spent with mom and dad, and my friend Pat, it was so very nice to have her over.  Mom cooked and we feasted, then we sat around talking.  The night went very well, now for the next holiday….

Here’s to hoping that your Thanks  Giving went just as well, and hope that you are ready to battle the next holiday.  So on that note, I bid adieu and keep it fun, safe, and always bright.

Giving Thanks…

This year, I am wishing you all a Happy Thanks Giving.  Today I am giving thanks to The Lord, for without Him, I am nothing, can do nothing.  So Thank you God.  I am giving thanks for my parents, that they were able to move down to Austin, and that they have had a smooth move and have settled in very well.  I am thankful for employment, it may not be the highlight of my life, but it is not a soul sucker as well.  I am thankful for friends, online, offline, for with out them, life would be pretty dull.  Oh there are so many things that I am thankful for.  I will just stop at those, and get myself ready for work, then after, that is when the real party starts, I’m talking, chicken and dressing, ham, and all those other yummy things that will be put before me.  May your thanks giving be just as awesome.

Wine(ing) the day away

So October is here, and that makes me smile, this happens to be my birthday month.  I will grace 42 come Wednesday the 7th.  Life is well life these days.  I have had my ups and downs this year, but nothing that has broken me.  Stronger and wiser I say.

Today I am depending it with the rents, basking at their apartment.  Sitting on the patio balcony sipping wine with my mom as we talk and enjoy this fall weather.

Wine down Sunday.

My dad will officially be down here the 23rd.  And San Angelo will be just a memory in the books.  He is So ready to be here now. 

I will say it is good having them here.  Still having my life independence is awesome, but having the other is great also.

Today is a beautiful day, my day off and the weather is perfect.  So hope your day is coming along awesome.  Get out and enjoy.

What I had.  We then hit up the movies, we went to see The Penguins of Madagascar in 3D, my first 3D movie.  It was wild, I really enjoyed.  We had a good time.  The movie was funny, we happen to be the only two watching it at that time, still fun though.  Now I am back home, all settled in, and about to pop in Superman.  The original one.  So here is to a wonderful thanksgiving evening. 

Today I am…  ThanksGiving!
