Beautiful Weather

The past few days have been wonderful . . . to feel alive and have energy. I have been able to keep things straight in my mind and have energy to take care of the things I have had to let go.

My foster pup Emmitt went to his new home today. What a blessing for us both . . . to see him be able to have a happy family to call his own and to know I had a part in getting him well enough to be happy.

It is going to be a full week. Looking forward to time away with my cousin this weekend. A long girls weekend! What a special time for the both of us to catch up and have some down time.

Another Day

It seems that it has been such a long week already, but it is only Tuesday. There is so much left to do this week and I am praying for the strength to make it through. I have been trying to scale back my commitments and find more time to rest . . . not that the medications are giving me much choice. I look forward to the day of being well and having the proper amount of energy to make it through the day. What a couldn't accomplish with a day of a clear mind, balance, and energy.

Peaceful Moments

At the moment I am trying to learn to be at peace with where ever I am at this time. I am blessed to have some time of quiet alone time the past few days. Time to rest, pray, and think. Although I am frustrated that I will not be able to be a part of a special family time tomorrow in Pa. I am trying to make the smart decision to stay put instead of driving there not knowing if my body will hold up and allow me to get home.
I have started a new regiment of treatments to help me get back up on my feet. It seems we have worked our way through a layer . . . so I am ready to tackle the next one. I am hoping that in two weeks I will be up and ready to enjoy a long weekend away with my cousin. I feel so blessed to have reconnected with her and her family.

Many Thoughts

I have a lot of feelings and thoughts running through me at the moment. Happy, sad, blessed, frustrated . . . It is strange how they can all happen at the same time. I am happy and blessed to have my husband that cares for me so deeply, also to have the privilege of watching my younger sister grow into a responsible young woman. Sad and frustrated that my body will not cooperate and feel better. I am so tired of being sick and tired. This illness has outstayed it's welcome . . . it has been 20 years.
For once I want to be able to plan to do normal daily activities without having to gauge how I might be feeling or prepare by resting up several days ahead of time. As of now I just continue to take the days as they come and pray. I know that I am at this place in my life at this time for a reason . . . I will believe and rest in that.

Something New

I figured it was time that I caught up and figured out how to blog. I am looking forward to seeing what this means of communication holds in store. I am someone that loves the Lord Jesus Christ, my family, and my dogs.
I thrive on learning what I can about rescue, the breeds I love, and natural ways of making my pets and family feel better.
