Set back

Hmmm....where to start. Well, without being too boring or pity party, I am in pain! Well, right now I'm not as I decided to follow my Doctors orders and take my medication. I had quite a spanking over the phone today for not taking the pain meds and muscle relaxers. Why do we think we can do things and tough it out...Each day praying and praying one day down...the next has to be better... Then I hear of a little boy that is six months old and diagnosed with a rare liver cancer. My gosh, how is that for an eye opener! I don't know the family personally, but my girlfriend is very good friends with the parents and she asked me to make a blanket. So a couple of days after my surgery, she brought over the softest yarn to crochet a blanket...With every stitch practically I prayed over this blanket. I would cry and ask boldly for the Good Lord to intercede and heal this baby boy. So as I was almost finished today, I held it up and it was as crooked as can be! Where oh where did I get off track? Was it because I was thinking too much about this baby? Maybe the tears hid the count...But being my brain dump hobby, it was a non stop thinking project. 

So I praise God for His many blessings, His open arms, eager ear and love beyond measure. And I can't forget the forgiveness we are given just from sincere repentance.

The is no comparison to's the levels we feel it in, emotionally or physically and always remembering (sadly) there is someone worse off than we may be. 

Tomorrow I am going to start over with that blanket with joy and gladness...rejoicing in every blessing and knowing Thy will, will be done.

Me and my big mouth

Well, I can officially admit I have a big mouth! I had no idea the swelling would be so bad! Feeling like a squirrel hoarding nuts in my cheeks is an understatement! OUCH
 So Monday, we drive to Chicago to get pre-opp done.
Tuesday is procedure....get home Tuesday night...Try to sleep. Finally doze off after the hub sweetly comes and sits with me in reclined couch. Wednesday we go to get boys, another drive...get back home about 9:30 that nite. And today, I am resting. Still kind of foggy... So I am waiting until I can totally concentrate and I can blog on what the hub and I did Monday! Pictures too...

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week! Thanks for stopping by...

Mouth to mouth

Well, we are out of town, seeing a specialist for my mouth. I have severe TMJ and they can't do anything to fix it until I get two other teeth corrected. I just finished up one today, then had pre-opp for tomorrows implant. So I hope it goes smoothly. I pray for peace and comfort, and all in all, that should be enough, right? Well, being human, and a neurotic baby when it comes to dental work, I got a little freaked out. Last time someone drilled into a bone in my body, I didn't walk for six months... So imagine my excitement! Anyway, I just wanted to touch base here, in case you were on pins and needles wondering why I haven't blogged in a few days. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers! I have a FAB blog to post WITH pictures once I'm all good to go!

Learning Leading and Living: One of those DAYS

Learning Leading and Living: One of those DAYS: Ever have one of those know, You've all been there, done that, so no need explaining. Guess there isn't much I could say to top a...

It was, just after my husband leaving in a "huff" from coming home for lunch, which lasted all of 10 minutes, I seen this photo posted on a friends wall on Facebook...Oh how The Good Lord has His ways of humbling you, even through Facebook. And as a side note, I put on YouTube to write, and my Beatles channel is play "All ya need is love". 

So the hub texts me 45 minutes before be basically was leaving for lunch to see if I wanted a soda...I reply appreciatively, yes. Then 15 minutes later, he says "You have lunch ready"...I didn't reply, because I "assumed" he was on his way...well, half hour later, he shows up..Of course his lunch is cold...and the vibe he gave off when he walked in the door wasn't exactly "HI HONEY, Sorry I'm so late..." it was just that vibe, girls, you know what I'm saying here...So of course, I'm not the most welcoming as I once was...Not excited by any means, as once was earlier, to see him for lunch. So after exchanging some not so pleasant mumbling...he leaves. So, I go back to my cleaning, networking...decided to wax my eyebrows...not once hearing from, being the caddy one, I have to text something not very wifely...

So I get an apology...Sorry you are upset with me...OKAY! How many of you does that really honk off? I mean it's like saying "its not my problem you are upset, I'm just saying the word sorry". So all day, I kept going back to this picture...all day I kept thinking about scripture, all day I kept thinking, "GOD! How many times have you forgiven me" and I realized I was taking my frustrations of unsettling feelings out on him. I realized I was having a hard time forgiving anyone today...Kind of like a pity party of sorts I suppose.

I love you babe, and I am sorry I was caddy today. And thank you Heavenly Father for the reminder, via Facebook memes. 

"If God is for you, who can be against you?"

Having a real rough day...Just one of those days you truly have to hand over to The Good Lord to get you through it. I have to keep thinking positive thoughts...I have to keep relying on the support of comforting scripture...I have to keep remembering God will not give me more than I can handle...And I more than anything, have to keep reflecting on all the blessings I have had...and that there will be set backs. 

Please say a prayer for me and my family. There is power and prayer and God's will, will be done...

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. Matthew 21:22

Thank you and have the best, blessed day ever!

And What Else I have been UP to!

Good evening, afternoon or morning! Whatever time of day you are reading this :)

It has been a FABULOUS Wednesday! Oh wow, almost 45 more minutes and it will be Thursday! Wow where has the day gone? I guess when you get your second wind at 9pm, it goes fast...LOL 

As most of you know, my husband started his own business with XANGO about a year ago...and as much as I love and support him, I just couldn't get into it...We use their products, mainly for myself, the nutrition aspect. The hub SWEARS by the shampoo and soap, but I didn't leave the shower smelling "girly" like I, after becoming schooled on all the chemicals in my favorite products, I just dreaded using them! So, my search was on for chemical free, good smelling, natural products...Oh sure, they have a few in the retail stores, but after seeing the savings by buying wholesale, I thought I would search for my own business! Jumping ahead just a bit, I loved tax time this year...yes, it was work saving all the receipts and hearing our accountant sigh....LOLOL However, having a Home Based Business saved our butts this year at tax time! 

Anyway, I found Celadon Road after searching and searching! They offer the best savings, the best compensation plan and GREAT smelling products! YAY! I was smelling girly again...without guilt and fear! 

So now I am an Independent Consultant with Celadon Road and LOVE it! Not only do I love chemical free, the wide variety of products (love the bamboo) but mostly helping others change their chemical laden products; even if it is just one at a time!

I will continue the XANGO nutritional products, but if I want to smell good, its Celadon Road all the way! 

Being the competitive beasts the hub and I can be, I plan on smoking him! LOL  Feeling good physically, smelling good, healthy cleaners and cool Bamboo products...just to name a few, is going to allow me to add to our income, and hopefully "beat" him by tax time next year!
