Finally, I have arrived at that Other SIDE!! It took over 3 days to really start feeling better. Pain is a bad thing. It gets into your body and then completely drains the JOY that you once felt, right out!! I can say now that i am feeling like myself once again!!
I have some nicely colored arms now too!! My left and most traumatized arm has a nice shade of red, a big stripe of white and then brown bruising below that. Since yesterday, on my right arm I have a nice black/blue/purple color there from having my blood drawn. Oh well, I love color...right?
Pain is still with me, but it is that kind where somehow I have to tolerate it. To explain what I feel....When I am sitting i feel like I am sitting on two exposed bones in my hips. Think about that!! The pain is awful especially as the day goes on. When I told the doctor that she said that it sounds like sciatica...everyone tells me that but does nothing about it. I am on a new medication for nerve problems so we will see if it helps.
Enough of that...I have tried to visit some of you but I am so behind in so many things since i was so off of the beaten normal path of my life. i will try to get to you. So many have stopped by saying that they have been praying for me. I want to thank you so much for all that you do for me. Some of you I may never meet in this life time but I feel like i already know you. Blogging creates a family of a type!! I so enjoy all of my blogging friends. I also try to pray for those of you that live with problems every day. Thank you for writing while I was so down!!
Winter has seemed to arrive here in sunny Savannah. We are 41 this morning!! Hubby even turned the heat on this morning!! Now I know that most of you have NO IDEA about hubby's idea of starting up the heat!!
When we lived in Illinois for all those years he was a stickler on not using our heat. Of course then we had oil and it was so expensive for us. We were raising 3 kids and keeping them in a Christian school which also cost us a pretty penny!! His idea was that we could stand it until the 31st of October!! Hm!! Some years were colder than others but the kids just somehow knew that Dad would NOT turn the heat on until October 31st.
Course in Illinois it was nothing like here. We are warm here until November....usually!! One night we had some friends out to eat. I tried my best to get him to turn the heat on...Company is coming!! Any excuse of course. Sure I could go turn it on, but I also knew that we were watching every penny just to keep things going!! I also knew how hard he was working..sometimes two jobs just to keep the kids in school, bills paid and me to be a stay at home mom.
The company came and we knew them well..so i said to them let's make Hubby miserable about it being too cold in here...Incidentally it was close to the "magic date". I remember that I fixed spaghetti that night. The kids were eating in another room from us. We told him that our spaghetti was freezing before it made it to our mouths. We kept it up long enough that...You guessed it..Our heat came on that year...EARLY!!
Funny that every time we FIRST turn on our heat that story comes to my mind!! I have a great hubby..believe me!! God was just doing one of his greatest miracles when he found my husband!! He just tries to keep things going here for us and he wanted to make ends meet for us and let me be at home with the kids.
So today we have some heat. When he turned it on he said (even now with just the two of us and of course Annie our cat!!)....He said..."Just to take the chill off"....Funny...just for me of course!! Marriage is a marvelous thing. You learn to live with each other no matter what the small things that some times either drive you crazy or make you laugh!! Again that is a choice so I choose to LAUGH!!
Thought for the day: "Remember LOVE weighs more than GOLD"
