~Just breath/and old pictures~

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal's entry is toward anyone in specific, I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess,and in hopes it might help someone else as I do. And if you might take an entry wrong and feel that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life. God bless you!......


 



This morning, I woke up at 2:00! Good grief! :o) So...I got started on a project that my daughter's boy friend asked me to do. ;o) He wanted me to go through my photo albumns and copy some pictures for him of my daughter throughout the years! lol :o) Noooo problem! :o) I posted a few of what I copied this morning. ;o) He's making a slide show for their wedding of her. :o) It's going to be so sweet! :o) Plus...as her mother, I have a few pictures of her that she wouldn't want anyone to see! lol :o) But...I'm not going to do that! :o) Just the cutie ones! :o) So...thats why I have the pictures posted...just wanted to share. :o) I think that my grandson looks alot like she did when she was his age! :o) Well I know he sure does act like her! LOL :o)
Going through those albumns really put me in a state of mind that I really wasn't ready for. It's been awhile since I've looked through them. Yes...we all know that I am a picture-holic and I love pictures! But these pictures are from a different time in my life. The better times. Seeing them put smiles on my face! :o) All of the things we used to do and the places we used to go to and the vacations we used to go on! Wow! :o) We did so much as a family! :o) We had a blast! And I have the pictures to show for it! :o) Thats the happy part! :o)
The weird part is I grieve for the lose of it all. I had a great job and a busissness that I had out out of my own house, that was successful. I so miss working. Plus I did volunteer work for meals on wheels. And we still did all of this! :o) We would go camping, Florida on spring break, all kinds of things. Taking in deep breaths.

Amazing how your life just stops! Just like that! And so did the pictures too.

My physical therapist will be coming this morning...so not looking forward to that! uuhh! Just knowing how thats going to hurt. ggrr! I was thinking about going ahead and calling the pain clinic again. Thats my last resorce on any kind of pain relief.


I'm going to leave now. She should be on her way soon! :o)
Gods blessings to all of you! :o)

I don't think your life has stopped. It is just a new normal. I think the slide show will be nice.

Lisa,
Yes, your life has changed. But the pcitures are wonderful memories of what was.  Even if you didn't have your problems, you would not look the same; I sure don't look like I did in 1985.  And jobs can change your life.  My husband's job has changed, he use to love it and now, well, I won't go into that.  But we still have each other!  And the way we feel about each other has only gotten better.  I don't exactly like being older & having my pain problems, either.  But I still like you am grateful to be here, as now we have our grandson, Jack. Soon, we'll have retirement. Scary change, but time changes us, and we either move on, or stay stuck.  I sure don't want to stay stuck.  Thanks for sharing your picture!!  Merry

Now that school is over, I have more time to get back in with you guys. I've missed so much and hope I'm still welcome. Here's what I have to say to this...

You're such a strong and beautiful woman, Lisa.
You may not be able to do all of the same things you did 20 years ago, but just look back at how wonderful you made your kids' childhoods. I just know that they are so grateful to have such an amazing mother, and even if the pictures and vacations have stopped, love and memories never fade.

I hope you enjoy your day. Take care.
Morgan

Thanks for sharing those pics, Lisa, and like Morgan (comment below) I cannot but admire your strength of character where your physical strength is draining away. Keep going.

I love the pictures Lisa.  I know how hard they can be to look at though sometimes.  Just the other day I had pics of my dad out and it just made me so very very sad.  Ah well, it also touched a place in my heart that is special ya know?  I wish you love.  Shelly

I just love the saying on your t-shirt in the pics.  That's a great idea to make a slide show for their wedding. Isn't it wonderful looking at pics, past and present? Don't stop taking pics! Hope you have a wonderful day and physical therapy goes well. I use to call my former physical therapist my physical torturist, LOL. I know from personal experience a physical therapy appt isn't fun, so prayers to you that it all goes well today.
Lisa
