Alas another four plus months have gone by. I have always heard that time seems to fly faster the older you are. Well, I can warn you all: IT'S TRUE!!!

Maybe it is because I am still having good days and bad ones too. I get so tired too easily.  But I still get up and try my darnedest. Some days it feels like I am just watching life pass by my window. I know that is going to take a lot of time for the bruising in my leg to heal. The back pain due to spinal stenosis and compression fractures can only be managed because that will never go away.

So I am leaning on my faith in God for the strength each and every day to be a person whom my family wants to be around. I want to be a person who radiates with peace and be a loving soul.  I do not want to be a drain on anyone's emotions. I pray for God's wisdom and the desire to follow His will. May I listen to His voice.

I am crocheting, knitting, or cross-stitching something for those on my Christmas gift list this year. I imagine the last stitch will be stitched on Christmas morning. I only have twelve on the list this year.

I miss canning. I used to make jams, preserves, pickles, and relishes. A favorite to make was green tomato mincemeat. I used the mincemeat to make holiday pies. As a child it was my job to pick the berries for jam. I took over the canning as my mother taught me.
