Dear Lord,
What can I say but thank YOU
for a new day.

Yesterday was with
It ended with certainty.
I am so thankful.

Peace for my beloved son and our family.
I can rejoice!

Yesterday started with what was
a usual sort of day,
until I felt the need to
simply, gently
blow my nose. At approx 0545 it began.
As most normal sometimes a little
blood might show up on a
tissue; well a little was there
and there was a little more.
Then I start to think of what meds
I had the night b 4;
well 600mg of Ib and an Allegra.
I had not taken my bp med that AM
because i had not eaten
and my bp had not been that high.
But what ever happen ...Happened!
My nostril was running like an open faucet.
I thought perhaps we could get to our first
point of interest but within 2 seconds my only thought
was "Mike take me to the ER NOW."
Beside making one phone call and ignoring
the 3 incoming calls, Mike was looking at the road
and looking a me : knowing i looked like someone
you see on horror movies.

Some traffic was slow.
I told Mike "pass everything, run lights
when you can and keep moving fast."
I remember hearing his flashing lights
I suppose we looked like a F-150 ambulance.

I am human and can not think sometimes on
how to treat myself, treating others is different.
All nurses and Drs know that and we all tend
to ignore our self and look out for the other person
and we get scared like the other humans , the humans like you.
I honestly thought my brain sprang a leak!
Well it does happen and with family history, it is possible.
It was an artery ( small one) in my nose-- that close enough to my BRAIN!
I kept thinking i am still awake and that is good.
Thank God for ERs, I do not believe I could work in one. Yes, ERs are more Dramatic than you see on Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy!!
There is a reason those does are locked!

Peace in the valley and God walks with us!
Much need relief for Jeff came yesterday,hopefully he will be working soon,
thing are looking brighter.
Part of a saying is "I Believe in the Sun when it is not Shining!"
Thank you God for everything you give.Amen.

So why am I blogging

I am not sure,
so many things to do
so many places to go
want to just sat and read
but not time to clean the floor.
My daughter graduates Sat.
The party is at 5,
No planned out menu written,
just all inside my head.

so who cares it the house is
floating the rain is not going to stop
OH but wait the news said
cut your grass today
the sun will pop out midday and then it
rain again.
So it that a hint of sunshine
I better rise and shine.
this day is non productive
if I sat her on my hind!!!

commenting on the good ,the bad and the ugly of gift registering

I better keep my mouth shut.......
but i won't .......

I had 2 showers.........
both total approx
10 gifts the most expensive was probably under 15 dollars........
There was NO gift cards.........
and no room to not appreciate "what I did or did not get".
Life should be Simple in all things. Everyone should remember that. YOU get what you pay for but good sense also prevails, you dont need a $ 10 potato peeler when you can get one for $2.
My suggestion is that probably every woman should have approx 6-7 kids (as my mom did)and learn to deal with what you do have. I DID NOT follow that and might have been better if I had. I can't not imagine what the future generation holds.
YOu have some good suggestions. Just remember TO KEEP IT SIMPLE and get your thank you card started in advance . So what if they didn't send a gift or the one you did not want thank them for the special thought and dont wait the " your have up to 3- 6 months to be proper" in getting them sent.(they forget OR really remember who you are by that time)
