Always Say A Prayer! :o) And thats what I do. I give thanks to the Lord for another day! I am very thankful for that! I also say a prayer for the people that know not what they do! ASAP! :o)
When I talk about my illnesses in my journal, I do it because thats why I made this journal. :o) ie: the name of the said journal. :o) Which there are people that might take life for granted, and not realize it. I was one of them, until I lost almost everything, my abilities. Due to my illnesses. So, I started this journal. Now, I don't want to sound redundant at all to anyone that reads this. But, I write what I go through in my daily life and how my illnesses affects me! :o) Which may sound like I am repeating my self, but in all actualality, I'm not, nor am I staying stagnet in my like at all. This is my life, an open book if you will. :o) Yes, I'm moving on in my life, and it may not sound like it....but, I am! Gods hand is gently guiding me! :o) So, here I go again; my sleep last night wasn't very good again, I kept waking up because of my back. ggrr! Which now, since I've been up, my hips are killing me as well as my legs too! Geesh! lol :o) Nothing new! :o) My physical therapist should be coming this morning. I'm not totally sure on that one yet. I'm told that Thrush is contagious and I'm told that it isn't! I think it isn't, because no one else has it in the house! :o) Not even my grandson! Whew! Glad of that one! :o)

My home health aid is suppose to come today as well. :o)
My husband is so much better now. Whew! I'm so proud of him! This weekend, he has started to quit smoking now! He's already done great on the drinking! Yesterday, he had 1 every 3 hours! YAY! He's using herbs as well to help kick the habbit! :o) My son has quit as well, and it's been 3 weeks for him! :o) YAY! I'm proud of the both of them! :o) See, there's a lot of things I don't write about, and then I'll turn around and see that some people "think" they know me or us just by reading my journal.....and guess what, you don't!
It's going to be a cold day today. Thats probably why I'm in the pain I'm in. It says it 25 out! bbbrrr! I want to cuddle today! LOL If my grandson will let me! :o) He will...he loves to get in grandmas bed! :o) Too cute! :o) I think my daughter got a video of him last night playing around in the kitchen! If so, I'm going to post it on my journal! :o) He's so funny! :o)
I can't wait until this weekend! :o) I have a lot of plans, and it's going to be so fun! :o) I am so happy for my daughter as well! Words can't describe it! :o) This time of year is when you see so many people being thankful for so many things! Thats so wonderful to see! :o) And to give is so much fun as well! I absolutely love it! I give throughout the year, but it just seems more special! :o) My daughter and I have been listening to Christmas music for days now! lol :o)
I suppose I'm done now with my redundant writings! :o) Thank you so much for your informative emails and your comments! :o) God does bless us all! :o)

Well done to your husband and son.  I find these days that my hips ache a lot when I am in bed, feels like I am lying on rocks.  If it gets worse I shall get advice, point is it is not all the time.  I love your winter graphics, particularly the cat with its blinking eyes.

Amen! Always say a prayer, we should be thankful for what we have & our health...even when it's not much...cause there's always someone worse off. :) I am thankful EVERY second.
Congrats to the guys, hope they can stick it out.
Hugs, Sugar

Congrats to your husband and son on quitting smoking!  I quit 5 years ago and it was the best thing I have ever done!  Linda

That is so cool of your husband to stop smoking. I am glad that he is feeling better.

Well done to your family for quitting the tobacco habit. It's so anti-social. Oral thrush is not contagious. Commenting on your video entry, after this one: delightful images of your grandson.
And of course nobody can claim to know anyone purely by reading their journal. You do get a vague idea, but no more than that.
Hoping you're having a good day, even after the poor night.

Hi Lisa,
Your writings are not at all redundant.
I know what you mean, I used to take alot for granted before I was diagnosed with RA.
Seems we are all like that.
Love your snowy graphic...I just got home and need to go soak in a warm tub.
Hooray for your hubby and son!

God should bless you just for the way you accept your difficulties. We all have them, but you are young to have them.  I love the optimism in you when you speak of your family trying to get rid of their bad and harmful habits.  You are being supportive, and God Bless You for that.  You such a nice girl, Lisa.  Merry
