A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE!

What a lovely day!
It is so great to be alive.


I have been so blessed with: more sleep, more energy, less inflamation, less pain!

Things I took for granted in the past, but feel very blessed to be able to do today:

1.Brushing my teeth shortly after getting up.
2.Getting up!
3.Brushing my hair, even the ones on the back of my head.
4.Ability to shower early in the day, rather than waiting until better mobility of the afternoons.
5.Making my bed early in the day.
6.Scrubbing the bathtub.
7.Stripping the bed sheets and putting on the fresh clean ones ALONE-WITH NO HELP!
8.Sewing a button on my son's favorite quilt. (It was an eye for a puppy on the quilt!)
9.Raising my arms to do stretch exercises.
10.Having the feeling of accomplishment during my day.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and caring words. I look so forward to your *visits* in my comment section!

Today, I read an article chock full of wisdom on how to deal with your wayward child. I don't have a wayward child, (Praise the Lord!), but found what I read to be helpful information and guidance for all parents. I found myself with tears flowing as I read. I recommend ALL parents to read it. You will enjoy the blog owner's other posts as well. Click on the link!

I love reading how you are feeling better!

Ever since I became your blog friend, I have prayed for you to have good days. I pray the same for Bill. I realize that he may never be like he was, I just pray for a reprieve for him every now and then.

I pray the same for you. I love all you do and you are such a delight, so this post made my night! Praise God!

For some reason, I couldn't post a comment on your show and tell Friday post, so I'm posting one here... hope that's okay.
I'm sure your nephew brings you much delight. I enjoyed reading about him and seeing the photos.
I had to have a 'double take' when I saw the one at Hunting Island. We were near there for over 5 years and that is where we did all of our beachschooling. We just left there last November. Who knows? Maybe we were there on the same day. Small world. ;o)

Aww, Pam...I am so very thankful you had a good day, where you felt good and had more energy. You are a blessing!!

P.s. And I added your nephew (from your Show and Tell post) to my prayer list.

Pam, Thank you ever so very much for your kind words and prayers for little Madeleine and her parents.

Also for placing Madeleine's photo on your wonderful site -

Let us all try to trace Madeleine and have this little girl reunited with her loving family.

Blessings to you all and Thank You again.

Peter
