winter has arrived here but not too cold yet. the leaves have all pretty much fallen off the trees. hubby blowing the last few from the yard. he wishes we were in Caribbean - an that will be soon enough with another february cruise.
i pray that i will be able to go. the pain when wearing clothes has become more intense. so this past week i have been resting in bed and i do mean RESTING. i have nothing to give anybody else. my body is trying to repair itself.
PAIN + TENSION = exhaustion even when resting.
another friend's hubby passed on Thanksgiving day - his birthday. he had a diagnosis 2 wks ago of pancreatic cancer and another friend's father just diagnosed with bladder cancer, surgery scheduled 23 Dec. finally he feels a relief to know why he has been in so much pain.

while walking along the beach the day of our son's wedding i came upon this hat that washed up on the beach. God has a way of getting your attention. hubby and i were praying and enjoying the early morning before many were out exploring the beach. i couldn't help but think of my middle son whose name begins with "R" and how he appears to go with the flow and have no cares. right up to an hour before his wedding he and his buddies were pulling stranded vehicles off the beach where it seems the sand and deep ruts bogged them down. he enjoys every minute of life and i guess that is why this group of young men make such great firefighters and find great pleasure working for local fire departments.
i wanted to pick this hat up and bring it home. but hubby would have no part of that.
another treasure lost, lol.

my neighbors plant over growing my fence
i miss my FIL - he was a gentle man, kind and very in tune to our children. he loved coming down and surprising them with play dates. my time of getting a little break and his time of laughing and making memories with our three sons. where has the time gone? so glad i have memories.
