Well that miraculous healing I was hoping for didn't come but I do feel better this morning. However that severe pain during a coughing spell yesterday has spread all around my left rib cage and down into my hip so much that I could hardly stoop to get my left foot into my jeans,uhhhh !!!!
After moving around a bit I found at least I could function normally.
Rebekah called just as I was reaching for my phone to call her. I told her there was no way I thought I could do the Biltmore House with this painfull side and still yelping loudly when I cough today.
I hate that so much as I was really looking forward to spending the day with her and her cousins and of course little Evy.
Oh well there will be other days and trips I'm sure.
After tightening a wide elastic belt around my mid section I did chores and had breakfast.
I am behind on our weekly paperwork and bill paying and today I need to deliver a coconut cake to a friend who works at the bank so I spent the rest of the morning catching up paperwork. Hubbie went to the feed store to re-stock our animal feed.
When he got back he drove me into town as I still feel sort of fuzzy headed. We mailed the bills,delivered the cake and did the banking then since I was feeling better than yesterday made a couple after Christmas sale stops. Still only found a couple small things. Just don't see the deals the news people are talking about !!
Back home I spent some time with the heating pad on my ribs and hip. I'm still yelping with pain at each cough.
#2 son came by to say he was closing on his new house next Friday. Not what he wanted but the lawyer was out of town until then and that's why they couldn't close before the end of the year. That 3 days is probably going to carry a hefty price tag for son,unfortunately.
Daughter came by to bring her baked goods for tomorrow. She has basketball practice in the morning so she will come and help me around lunchtime.
After chores and supper I iced caramel,chocolate and coconut cakes, got everything wrapped and ready for market.
Thankful tonight that I am feeling much better.
Sometimes I see things that really put things into proper perspective for me and this story on weather.com showing what some folks went through this past year did just that for me. I am very thankful each day for the Lord's blessings on my life. But I see pics like these and I wonder if this were me would I still be that thankful person ???
This is a mother searching for her children after the China earthquake this year.
I would hope that God would give me the grace to humbly turn to Him in the face of my peril. He has all the answers, we just have to ask the right questions !!
Good Night and Gos Bless.
