A Week Of Blessings


English: Yellow and green Bell peppers, North ...

I don’t know what I did to deserve the extra icing on the cake this week, but I want to just sit here and cry, not over sadness but joy. I can be one of the biggest whiners, and I come to all of you for comfort and understanding. I believe in God but don’t show it when I am always stressing or worrying over Al, so I am not a very good example of a christian woman.

But this week, I have been so blessed, and I just had to share with you my joy. I had given my camera to a family member, who accidentally dropped it and broke it. I thought to myself, it will be quite a while until I can take photos again for my friends at WP, but God used a friend here and I was blessed with a camera in my hand once again.!

I have been blessed for four days in a row with smiles and some laughter from Al. I don’t know where this came from, and at first

I tried to analyze it to death, but then thought, don’t ruin it Terry, be thankful for this time from him. Keep it in your memory box!

Today, at the doctor’s office I received good news that my blood tests were all good, except the cholesterol, and that my weight gain is not causes so much from what I eat, but stress. Now I just have to pray very hard for that to lesson, and maybe I will lose a few pounds!

Today, I was waiting for the nurse to show up for Al, and about fifteen minutes before the nurse would arrive, the door bell rang, and when I opened it, there was not the nurse, but one of the employees of our favorite place to eat and get medications. She asked me if I loved home-grown tomatoes and green bell peppers, and I said with no hesitation a big yes! I have not had home-grown veggies for many years, and she said that she had thought of Al and me and had extras, and would I like to have some, and again, I said yes.  Once again, I was blessed!

Like I said, I don’t know why I am getting these extra blessings, but I am very thankful. To all who pray for us, cry and laugh with us, I want to thank you for bringing us into your hearts and lives. To God and the heavenly angels, thank you for bringing some extra love and sunshine to our home this week.

  1. sometimes we need to be reminded how to be grateful! how wonderful to have the extra peppers and veggies, a reminder that you are in charge of how you eat. just because the dr doesn’t know you ate that donut doesn’t mean you have carte blanche to go out and eat unhealthy foods. stress along with eating the wrong things are a bad duo. we also tend to eat more when we are stressed and to crave sugar which is a natural valium:)

    you deserve good things and how we interpret events has so much to do with our ability to embrace those rewards. just so happy that you are accepting joy no matter how great or small.

    continuing to wish you peace of heart!

    • i would love to buy tomatoes and green peppers in the grocery store, but they are so expensive. I have to be careful to make sure Al has all he needs each month, and then buy what we can afford. We do our best and I am eating healthy, this is why all my labs came back good. I do cheat sometimes, but I think we all do. The fresh veggies without chemical sprays was a very nice treat, because in my heart, the chemicals they spray on foods that grow in the dirt and the ones they inject our meat with, are the biggest cancer killers we face!!! I try to embrace each thing in our lives, no matter how small or big, because I know for a fact, that Al is getting worse, and one day it will be worse than bad, so I am keeping all of these happy times, memories and all I can gather in my memory box in my mind……………..hugs to you Sandy, for you are a very caring lady !!!!
