When everything goes wrong, it was one of those bad days, that everyone has. It was little things to end with the phone not working, computer, floors, etc. I am so tired I cannot describe it, but a lot of people know how I feel.

When we have those days, it is time to remember our blessings. I am grateful my husband did not loose his job. I have compassion for the ones that did. I am thankful to have the ability to type on a computer, technology allows me to communicate with friends. I guess this is my gratitude journal with normal life challenges.

After Flood

After flo

We are on the long road to recovery, when it comes to getting the house back to normal. We started the week with water and it is all dried and cut out, now is repair time. I am very apprciative of insurance, just hate to see all that beautiful wood, thrown away. Remember, all things work to the good....

When things start out tough, keep on going. We started to cancel our anniversary trip to Callaway Gardens when we woke up to our home flooded. A pipe broke as we slept and filled the kitchen and more with water. We dried as much as we could and called our insurance and left. They are taking care of our blessed home and we are so happy we went to the gardens.

It was beautiful, even in the winter, riding, walking on the trails was so nice. It was a day to remember and we could have stayed home with many difficulties. Next time, go ahead and go, when you just want to stay in.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my 22 year old daughter. We had a wonderful evening, talking and eating at a nice restaurant again, in downtown Atlanta. We wanted to spend time with her more than anything in the world. That is something I think many families forget to do in their hectic life. Just talk to each other.

Of course, as parents do, we had to reminisce about the day she was born. We are proud of her, she is working hard, to make herself a great life. It has always been a busy season for us, since she was born the day after our second anniversay. I wouldn't change a thing.

I have been thinking of a different way to tell my husband HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. I will tell the blogging world about our 24 years. How does time fly? I am sure everyone that has been married a long time can relate.

We started off well when he got out of the military, had 2 children, built a handicap accessible house, our careers changed many times, children grew up, too fast. My health has always been a continuing story, besides MS, through many surgeries, etc. he has been there. I always could depend on him. I love him and would do it all over again.

Of course we had our ups and downs, life seems to be that way. My advise to everyone is, to hang in there, life keeps changing.

I was awarded this by a blogger Momma Young, in Nevada. I do not think I deserve it, but I accepted it, so that means something. I appreciate all comments, readers, followers. I am not a journalist but the blogging world has given a lot back to me. I want people to think positively, under whatever circumstances they are in. My theme and post I like the best is Grattitude.
The Mom that gave it to me is remarkable with 4 boys under 12, I do not know how she has time to think with her full life, but it is worth it.
I will not let this fill me with pride just appreciation.

THANK YOU MOMMA YOUNG (I could not find her real name)

I do not want to complain but I do feel I need to address the issue of fatigue, it is well known by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients. I have been on the computer all day, with ordinary housework and all the normal home life, that everyone has, I said what can be uplifting about being tired?
Here is what I thought of, I am Thankful I have a lot of family and friends to socialize with, am able to go to church, I can clean the house, I have a home to clean, I have a Dad to call everyday, I have the computer to make a little money on EBAY, the wheelchair to get me around fast. I had a friend remind me at the end of a tiring day, I get to go to a warm bed in a warm home.

I did start the day off being thrown to the floor by my wheelchair, because my housecoat got caught on the trigger. So the chair flew into the door jam and burned the tires until I could figure out a way to unplug the batteries. It was one of those challenges but what a way to start the day. I was so blessed I did not get hurt, and I will be more careful from now on. It is a case of too much confidence, I wasn't as careful as I used to be. I am like a child learning to walk and I learned when you fall, you get back up. When life throws you down, a challenge that everyone has, you have to keep on keeping on.

I am so exhausted after a non-stop weekend, which I am Thankful for, but I am through worrying about finances. I am making an effort to do the best I can, and let the rest take care of itself. We have made it for 4 years now, through a learning process, I call it. I have quit wanting more material things and have become grateful for what I already have. I am trying to do that, anyway.
I felt like I had a sign from God when I saw a woodpecker bird on a tree again, that everything is going to be O.K. I know a woodpecker is not a dove but I enjoy watching them so much, and it had been a long time since I saw one. Bird or not, I am sure, this will be a memory and we will be more careful not to buy so much stuff. I do believe all, rich or poor, have had to re-evaluate their lives.
