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 .
Chai Latte and Salted Caramel Cupcake. Yeah, my Saturday is going nice. Now let the workday begin.
What I love about the early mornings in my life; are that it is filled with peace and semi-silence. Here I am sitting out at the park next to Central Market, waiting for the time when have to be on the grind. it is relatively quiet. There is bustling from time to time, with joggers on the trails, and the engine hum from the truck waiting to unload; otherwise it is a nice morning. I so love the early morning hours.
The weather is nice at the moment, but the gray of the clouds are moving in. weather is about to turn cold.
Glitches in my mom’s move to the rehab, her platelets were too low, so they gave her another round of blood, and is keeping her at the hospital. She will be there all this week, and weekend. They will see what’s what after. I terribly hate what is going on with her, to see her in such pain. Family, friends, and prayers is what keeps me sane. To God goes the glory.
Yesterday I had my first Chai Latte in a year. From Central market of course. I am about to walk over and get me one before work. I have definitely missed them.
So I shall enjoy my quiet time this morning, and I hope your day is filled with some quietness as well. Until the next time, enjoy.
Well today anyway. Today the weather is cloudy, rainy, humid and calm. Yes, it is a pretty quiet Saturday. You know the kind that makes it feel as though it is not even a Saturday. So the rents and I took a little trip to Brady, TX. Just to get some barbecue. Sure there are tons of bbq places in austin, heck I really do need to get some, and do a comparison. Anyway, the ride was great and the bbq sandwhich was delicious.
If you happen to stop in Brady, Texas this place will not dissapoint.
Well today is day three of three weeks of training. Hoping to pass tests next week. The trainer just seems less than thrilled, basically the class is boring. There are 21 of us stuck in a tiny cramped class, it is a snoozefest. Everything is done on a projector screen, I take notes by hand, she does not clue you in on what important notes should be taken. You are just figuring it out as you go along. The class participation is meh… I just pray I soak it all in. Stay tuned.
Between getting home around 6 and taking in the Olympics, that has been my week. Then dinner, and off to bed to start it all over again. I am glad that the training schedule has the weekends off. I can do something this Saturday, probably go to the mall. Speaking of Olympics, did anyone catch those swimming finals oh yeah! They worked it out. Well, time to get this day started, gotta keep hydrated, it’s hot out there y’all. Enjoy your day.
First day of the new job. Went well, no first day jitters for me, probably because I was just way ready to get back at it. Bills wait for no one. I feel confident that I will do well, more like I am praying I will do good. Stay tuned! Today was not as hot as yesterday and the day before, I can deal with it today. I am returning to waking up at 5 am to get the 6 am bus. Since this job is far south, out near the airport area. I am going to do my best, try to get a whole year in if possible, then try for something a little more closer to the north.
Life has been chugging on for me. Trying to keep cool in the heat of summer. Especially since I hate staying indoors, when I can be out exploring, but for my health, I try to limit the outdoors to early mornings.
Gonna try to get to the pecan street festival next month. Plus going to start attending church again. Stay tuned as well. Well this is it for now, until the next time. Enjoy!
Here’s to having a awesome 4th!. Yesterday I set out to get out of the apartment. Went downtown, and took some photos. Today, I rest, a little trip to the falls, to feed the ducks. Hope your 4th is a great day.
So I got a new phone about a week ago. Seeing as my phone was about to bite the big one, it has been in a death spiral for a couple of years now. So it was finally time to do it. I got the same kind of phone my mom has, and she loves hers; and as I have observed as well as shot photos from her phone, I knew I wanted one as well. What phone you say waiting patiently to hear. I got the Note 5. I do say it is incredible. I love being able to share my photos and videos between the phones just by touching the phones together, super cool. The photos come out super clean, and clear. Front facing camera is so amazing as well. Totally loving this phone. No more headaches from fighting with lag and freeze time. Definitely one less thing to think about.
So went down to marble falls today, nice ride, fed the geese and ducks; very relaxing. My mom and I were heading over to see if we could see if the dams were still letting water out, as they were yesterday. Only got a photo with regular camera, and it was not that great quality. But there was none today, so went to feed ducks and geese at the falls. Here are a couple of photos I got. Today has been an awesome day.
Gone fishing today… well my mom and dad are doing the fishing, I am just photographing the sights. It is an overcast kind of day, makes for some good fishing. Have a great day.
See you on the lake side. 🙂
