Gifts

I’m back.

It has been a month since I last posted. Between the stresses of a sick husband and the pandemic and dealing with Medicare, etc., I just never felt like writing. Or reading.

In other words, I have been feeling overwhelmed. And as usual, when I feel overwhelmed, even the smallest things stress me out.

So I reached out to God and as usual, He helped me feel safe and secure and calmed my nerves. He sent me the right messages at the right time. The email from an old friend. The smile from my husband. The FaceTime call from my son so we could watch our youngest granddaughter take a walk outside with her dad.

I know God has given me many gifts. Sometimes I need to just stop a minute and look at them. And thank God for them. And then I can get through anything.

Family. Faith. Friends. 

What more do I need?

  1. What a beautiful post full of gratitude and appreciation for all that the Lord gives us. Many would discount these things, but for you, they were gifts from the creator. I’m glad to hear that things have leveled out for you.

  2. Welcome back Colleen! Yea, life is going on with me too. I found out a month ago that I have Type 2 Diabetes and I’ve been educating myself as to the cause and how to get my A1C lowered. New recipes and foods to eat and foods not to eat, but I’m going to beat this thing! I refuse to stay on meds or insulin and so far I have lowered my A1C from 12% to 6.51%!!! I will fight. You fight too girl. God and our guardian angels will take care of us. God bless. Linda
