Today is day 365…holy cow, little bloggy is a year old! We celebrated with a candle in a scoop of ice cream-yum! I am grateful for my hubby who celebrates my accomplishments-even if its something random and silly like blogging every day for a year. He also planned a sweet fondue date night tonight, which was wonderful. I am so blessed.
What are you grateful for today, sweet friends?
Sundays in the summer are my favorite. We have this farmer’s market downtown that I love.
Today was a pretty bad fibro day. We laid low most of the day (after our morning trip to the market) but tonight I was feeling antsy so we went for a walk. While we were out walking we passed this place downtown
(Just in case you were wondering, I was supposed to leave yesterday on my trip but it got cancelled last minute. I’m frustrated about the reason it was cancelled but grateful for the extra time at home.)
Today was a tough day. We have to fight with my new insurance to get them to cover the only medicine that has made my fibro even somewhat bearable. I am frustrated and scared that they will make me try a bunch of other meds (not more effective and not specifically for fibro, and with more & worse side effects) so they can save a few bucks. The thought of being in moderate to severe pain every day again is enough to make me cry. Additionally, we have been trying to get a family member into treatment for an illness that they have struggled with for nearly 20 years, and today the program that was suggested as the best option turned down the request for this family member to be admitted into the program. No discussion, no real reasons, just flat out denial. Talk about discouraging. I love this person and desperately want them to have the opportunity to turn their life around. Please say a prayer for those helping this person find a treatment that will work for them.
But despite the frustration and tears today, I am thankful for beautiful sunset that reminded me that even in this crazy world, the Creator gives us glimpses of amazing beauty.
Hope your Wednesday was more encouraging. What was your best part?
I am grateful for a fun date night of gluten free pizza and Minecraft. My hubs is the best.
go figure, we had dinner with two pro photographers tonight and I don’t have a single picture to post. I am grateful for dinner with my best friend (sweet hubs), an old friend and his girlfriend, a new friend. we talked and laughed and cried from laughter. so good.
tonight I am grateful that, somehow, this whole week I ended up with no evening plans (except for a Minecraft date night with the sweet hubs tomorrow night). don’t get me wrong, I love the things I normally do…young life, small group, visiting friends, ect, but there is something wonderful about having a week of rest. I honestly can’t remember a time that I had no extra plans for a week. it’s kind of nice.
other things I’m grateful for tonight: my mom hearing from someone we were worrying about, snuggly family time, and good news for another family member.
for a good breakfast and a beautiful view, a super relaxed (and needed) lazy morning,
thankful for wonderful words that encourage my spirit and for a very successful yl banquet.
also for a wonderful date night with my hubs after a crazy weekend. I forgot to take a picture, but we thoroughly enjoyed our time together eating and grocery shopping.
this is a random addition, but look at this crazy thing I saw this morning. birds!!!! everywhere!! good thing it was bright so it was pretty and amazing instead of a scene from a b horror movie.
