I didn't realize I had been off the blog radar for so long. Work got rather hectic and my creativity plummeted but I think everything is somewhat back in order. The Poinsett County Fair has come and gone, so has another Birthday! I have made new friends, keeping track of old ones, having fun with my job and all while trying to lose weight - HAHAHA! I think I find it more than I ever lose any. I have been training in Tai Chi for Arthritis and have kinda of slipped on practicing every day! It isn't fun to practice if you don't have friends or family to laugh at your movements. I look like I am chasing a mosquito in slow motion!
Many of you follow me on Facebook as well so some of you might have heard about the tragedy that has struck the small town of Harrisburg, Arkansas. We had a family of 3 found shot to death. Please remember our community and the extended family during this tragedy. We also lost a young man of 11 or 12 (I didn't know him or his family personally) during the 4th of July in an automobile accident. Death is so difficult to handle when it comes because it usually comes like a thief in the night - never knowing when to expect it.
For now everyone is quiet and mellowed out. Squirt, Ginger and Roscoe have all gotten a case of the I am not going in the back yard with the Tallulah Tuna Moose! Squirt will generally go if she isn't by the door but if she is hovering, then I have to lead everyone except Roscoe outside. Roscoe just doesn't want to go because I don't give him a treat each time he comes through the door (AHEM - GRANDMA DOES b/c SHE LOVES US). Poor Tau is just so big and heavy that it is even hard for me to play outside with her but I try.
Fibro is under some control. As long as I stay calm, then all is good! Yeah right - it is August and my work calendar year is coming to an end. WHERE DID 2011 GO? I have stopped drinking sodas AGAIN for the time being. I have developed Acid Reflux and they just aggravate it even more.
I think this catches me up to September on life in general here. I hope to get some jewelry photos posted this weekend!
May God bless and keep you all safe (especially those who have been dealing with disasters like Joplin, and those who may be dealing with them soon like North Carolina)!
Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.
