My many Blessings

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

Mary, thank you so much for your wonderful comment. I am feeling so much better and I had the best nights sleep in a long time---didn't even wake up in pain. Al says I care so much for other people that I often forget to take care of myself, but that's just my nature. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Love and Hugs, Pat

Glad you are better now. No wonder you got sick though with the crazy weather we have been having...seems like we go from 20 to 70 every day!

Hey there Pat,
I'm just checking in on you. I'm glad your doing okay. I got your comment regarding that situation and I am glad you are doing what your doing. HA!
Sometimes "hurt people hurt people" you know. You just didn't deserve it.
But it's okay your going to be just fine.
Ya'll hang in there. We've had some nice weather today. I went for a walk even. That's a good thing.
I need to do that more often.
See ya!

Hi Pat,

I do not how I got to your blog. I was going somewhere else. Since I was hear I thought I would check it out.

Our lifes seem to have a lot in common. Not nice common but Pain Doctor kind.

I could relate to what you have to say.

I had to have both of my knees replace in the last 2 1/2 years. I am now on a Morphine pump which is in my body. I could go on, If you like to connect,please email me. I am 57 years old.

God Bless,
