Archangels, St. Michael and St. Gabriel.

Yesterday was the feast day for Archangels Saint Michael and Saint Gabriel. They are two of my favorite saints. In honor of their feast day, I am posting a prayer. Heavenly King, You have given us archangels to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth. Saint Michael is our protector; I ask him to come [...]

Thank you!

Well, I wouldn’t say I am pain-free, but I am getting close. I am blessed to have access to good health care. I am grateful to my doctor and the drug Kenalog, which was injected into my knee yesterday. It is my hope to jump back into my life today in the next few days. [...]

Great people.

Sadie was home over the weekend. Seeing her and spending time with her is one of my favorite things to do. John and I enjoyed dinner with Sadie last night. I took this photo. Now that Sadie is away at school and busy with so many things in her life, I appreciate any time I [...]

Turning to the drink.

The pain in my leg has been unbearable. I have tried everything from Advil, Tylenol to aspirin. Nothing helped and I could get no relief. Last night I tried Bud Light. Yep, I turned to the drink. John and I went to Burgh’s where I began enjoying the drinks, and continued back at home. I [...]

I love that the biggest news in the media today is the Pope’s visit to the United States. Someone told me recently that they were not interested in the Pope or his visit because they were not Catholic. I don’t think you have to be Catholic to enjoy the energy of hope. The last time [...]

Deep breath.

During the last week I have many times caught myself holding my breath. Since I have been experiencing pain in my leg, I have found I am often holding my breath. That is the exact opposite of what I should be doing. Have you ever noticed that you are holding your breath? I remember being [...]

Home and grateful.

What a difference 24 hours can make. As I wrote my blog about my friend yesterday morning, I was in Florida, and in a lot of pain. I did not sleep much the night before. The mattress on my bed was not great. As I changed the sheets I noted that prisoners probably sleep on [...]

Happy Nurse’s Day.

Today is National Nurse’s Day. When people are nurses their jobs do not stop at the end of a shift. Nope, their caring and compassion leaks out like rays of sunshine through the clouds and touch the people in their every day lives. I will be honest, I never really thought about nurses and what [...]
