I have not posted in a while, so I wanted to update you kind readers and share some thoughts. My shoulder is steadily improving! For that I praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers and your gracious comments. Leslie is nearly back to normal! Her appetite is much improved! Laci is also doing well.
I have been feeling rather “blah” lately. I am wondering if the medicine I’m taking could be causing this. I have been questioning myself as to why in the world I ever started a blog! I often think that I am terribly vain for thinking that anyone would care to read anything that I write! Seriously, very few of you dear readers know me, yet you take the time to read my blog. I want you to know that I appreciate it so much. I appreciate those who do know me for stopping by!You know my faults and shortcomings better than anyone, and yet you check in here and read what I have to say. You are a blessing to me!
I’m burdened right now for several friends who are facing great trials. I am heavy hearted and I sigh a lot. A dear friend has a one month old baby boy who may not live very long. I am heartbroken for her and begging God to turn things around for him. A former Pastor’s wife is facing serious treatments for a liver disease she caught from a blood transfusion over thirty years ago. A dear lady in my home church is having a portion of her jaw removed because of a cancerous tumor located there. Her daughter and I went to church and school together most of our lives. Another dear friend is facing great financial stress.
These burdens weigh heavily upon me. Words fail me. Of course, I am taking these to the Lord, but because I am very sensitive, I find it difficult to “move on” and shove it all to the back of my mind. I realize that being sensitive is sometimes good, sometimes bad. It’s good because I can feel others’ pain, so I’m more likely to pray and help when possible. It’s bad when I wear my feelings on my sleeve (which I sometimes do). I have been finding out that, along with kind friends and encouraging words, having a blog also includes having some critics.
I am a nobody. I realize that. I’m so sorry if I have ever posted anything that might have sounded “know it all-ish”. One thing I try to do here is be real. I’m being it now, I guess.
I am also terribly sorry for this very jumbled post.
Thank you for reading, thank you for commenting, thank you for caring…
