Updates and Housekeeping
Last year was not my best physically. I had been ill for awhile and had sort of a tipping point in the fall which led to another round of doctors and testing. All of which led to the result that I had something that they could do nothing about and I was just going to have to learn to live with it. And people wonder why I have a great aversion to going to see them in the first place?!
My daughter, who is in the Navy, came home at Christmas between duty assignments. She brought her fiance with her for a visit and I heartily approve of her choice!
I have a beautiful grand-daughter as of November! She is precious! Gampa thoroughly enjoyed buying her first pair of overalls for Christmas!
I have taken a break from church related duties. I needed some time off and the physical problems that I was dealing with really forced the issue. Fortunately, we have a wonderful new minister at First Washington and she has come through with flying colors! With taking a break it also means that I have not taken another advanced course (because apparently the classes I took at the Leadership Institute do not count), so technically, I’m not in lay servant ministries right now. It’s on the list, but for now, my health is a higher priority.
I did not finish reading through the Bible in a year. I got close, very close but didn't get it all done. Since the world didn't end on December 21st (she said tongue in cheek), I figure I have another shot at reaching the goal! Tomorrow is fresh with no mistakes in it-yet!
I am sooooo ready for spring! My daughters introduced me to Pinterest and that has managed to keep me sane through the months of pain. I may not have been able to do a lot of things but I could at least dream a bit via the various boards that I created! You don’t realize how powerful being hopeful or being able to dream is, until it’s the only thing you’ve got to hang on to! There were days like that over the past few months. A few too many!
That pretty well sums it up!
Now as to the housekeeping. Comments are still open and welcomed and I still moderate them. I’ve been getting a lot of spam comments though, so I have had to turn the verification function back on in the hopes that it will eliminate the spambots. It’s an extra step and I apologize but I feel it is necessary in order to keep spam off of the blog.
I will try to post more regularly. No promises, just a hopefulness that I will feel well enough to sit in front of this keyboard and write!
Be well, darling readers! May 2013 be a year of joy and adventure for each and every one of you!
