So far this week

Monday I cleaned the pantry and began the a photo journal post. Spent some time on the phone on Tuesday with the nurse of the surgeon who fell ill. She wanted to speak to me on a personal note about her own child who has special needs with hearing impairment. It was cool that she came to me for help and I literally had the phone numbers and the was able to teach her the hierarchy of the special ed department of our local school district, I even had the phone numbers and contacts for her.
I spoke with our financial adviser too and she is concerned about the life insurance on hubby encase he goes home before me. We have developed a living trust (when we went to get Dash in Russia we were targets as Americans) to protect Miss fiction. We try to be very wise and invest for retirement too. We cant touch any of it for another 14 years or so but it is good to have it in order. My Father through marriage always encouraged us to start saving young. We had extra taken out and invested into our retirement. We are getting closer and although it is very tight now we will be able to pay the house payment and utilities when we retire (if) with the kids being so young we will probably extend to 72 (if we can hubby). I have not worked enough hours so I will not have Medicare. We opted out of doing disability for myself. We cover our own while we are able always have.
Wow I had a full day yesterday. I droped off the kids and came back to the house. I did my pedicure quickly and was off to physical therapy. I was given a gift. The therapist did a heat soak and electrical stimulation on my low back as well (free) as a gift. He said to make sure I'm set up in the room and not the gym for a few visits so he can repeat that gift. That felt so good! I have a narrowing of L4, L5 and L6. It causes some partial peralisis when I have inflammation. It can be so hard for without bending at the knee I always have to bend right there at the hip. So this is a real treat.
I went to the grocery for a grapefruit and some seltzer(I used the electric cart), spoke with the cart attendant a child herself at 19, she has a sibling who is 16 and is completely disabled. We spoke sometime and she told me how her mother just gave her sister away because she could not handle it. Her grandmother cares for he. Her mother had drug addiction, This young girl has fought to achieve. I praised and encouraged her. An elderly man (Amazing Marvin) was lost I cleared my seat to give a ride back to the drug store around the corner. He told me how he was rotting away in his 4 walls of his apartment. He put a sign on the door "if you need help ask".
He had a homeless couple their child, and a yet to be born at the doctors office nearby.
He thinks he will live longer now!
Took the kids to the roller rink last night for a school fund raiser. I'll post on that later.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
