Recovery continues, slowly

Well, mom's been working half-days for the past week and although it tires her out, I think it's been good for her. She seems in better spirits all the time. I haven't actually seen her now for two weeks. My trip home last weekend was postponed, so I'm hoping to see her soon. 

She sounds good on the phone, but who really knows. Ha ha. She baked cookies this weekend, so I think everyone knows that's a good sign. 

Although her fatigue continues, as it likely will for some time, her mind is feeling better. Onto Mayo, hopefully, end of this month for a check-up that we really hope is a positive one!

  2. Good Morning, Paulette --

    I'm thinking of you this morning and praying for you. God is ministering His peace and encouragement to you as the sun [Son] begins to show its [His] brilliance on this welcome break from the hot, hot mornings this week. An itty bitty precipitation earlier also gave the lawns and vegetable gardens a sip of moisture. Summer is especially beautiful this year. Isn't God an awesome Artist, touching nature with His beauty throughout every season? And just as He controls the majesty of the nature with all of its colors and exquisite touches, He leads us through the seasons of our lives. We may sometimes think that this or that doesn't seem all that terrific or wonderful as we're facing the challenges and struggles of life ... and then walla -- we "get" it as He creates peace within us in spite of the confusion and as He instills hope within us regardless of the hurt and as He provides guidance and direction as we walk through the landmines of life's stuff. We can trust Him because we know that He loves us. I continue to thank God for your health, and I praise Him for your strength each day.

    Today's Joke:

    Two old codgers went fishing one morning. Sitting in the boat, neither of them said a word for hours. Then one shuffled his legs a little, trying to work out a cramp. He shuffled his legs again about two hours later. His buddy looked up and said, "Did you come to fish or to practice your dancing?"

    Encouraging Words in I Corinthians 1:3 -- “Paulette, may God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you all of His blessings, and great peace of heart and mind.”

    Paulette, God loves you -- and so do I.

    Blessings,
    Joyce
