Sorry I haven't been posting and only visiting other blogs. We have been down with a bug and just starting to feel better. My blood pressure is another story, but don't want to go into all that---let's just say, they had to raise the dosage.
I have been trying to stay in my "Happy Place" with gentle thoughts of what I have and thank God for the little things He brings me every day.
Have you ever thought about what you would do if you won a huge lottery? I have, and the only big thing I would do is build a new house with an air filtering system for my health. Other than that, I would probably give it all away to people in more need than myself. I am totally at peace now with what I have. Being sick last week, made me Stop and think about the world we live in. Our house is small but in my eyes, it is a wonderful cottage that could use some new siding. By today's standards it would considered a "Shack". I am a low maintenance woman like the song and I'm no "High Class Broad". I am educated though and still keep educating myself on current events. I am a people person, but I do lack something that is very much needed---Self confidence! I am still searching for it, but I am my worst critic. I know this sounds like "True Confessions" but it's not what I intended. When I say I am praying for you or your family, know that I am sincere. I often wonder why God saved me when I was dying and I know in my heart that it was for a Greater Purpose than myself. I am happy with my life now, so that is a start on the path of Self confidence.
I have shed tears for people I don't even know, but my heart always tells me that prayers are the best medicine for those who are sick or have lost loved ones. I have a former co-worker who lifts me up every single day since I have been sick and I believe that God kept him in our lives for a purpose.
So today, if you are reading this, I hope that your life is filled with the many Blessings that I have received. They mean more to me than any amount of money in the World. Love and Hugs, Pat
