Happy Birthday to two....I mean three!

Happy Birthday to two of these three sisters!  Mary Grace on the left and Katie on the right both have birthdays one yesterday and one today.  Sorry Emily, but you didn't have a birthday!! Well, you did........ oh, you get it.....Oh, my goodness, I don't think I did a birthday post for you Emily,  So here's the revised version of this post.

Happy birthday to three sisters!  From left, Mary Grace, Emily and Katie! 

It has been such a joy watching these girls grow from teens to women. 

Hope you had and have wonderful birthdays and many more to come!  I love you!



*********************************************************



I'm on day 5 of bronchitis and I'm still not well!  I've been on antibiotics for four days, so I'm guessing I have the type that doesn't respond to antibiotics.

Now, I'm not complaining....NO, I'M NOT!  But this also means I've had to put off my shoulder surgery!  Which puts it way nearer to Thanksgiving, when my house MUST be clean so that hordes of family members can come in and dirty it up again.  :)  Just kidding family members!  Sounds a teeny bit like complaining doesn't it?  :(

Maybe nobody else is like this, but when I'm really supposed to be resting and not just resting because I want to.........I notice every little spot of dust in the entire house, even the rooms I don't walk into every day;  I know they have dust because I haven't been in them in a while....you get the picture.

I also start thinking about all the things I wanted to update in the house before Thanksgiving.   I also wanted to sculp a nice piece for the foyer and paint something for the living room.....well, except that I don't sculp or paint......but that's beside the point when you're sick and delusional.


What I really miss today is going to church and worshiping with others that I love and miss when I'm not there.  But I'm thankful that I AM able to go most Sundays because I know people who love much but cannot go due to ongoing medical problems.  I'll get well and be there next week, they might never get to go again. 

I was glad when they said unto me, let us go to the house of the Lord!  Psalm 122:1

I  remember that even though I might be homebound for a few days, I'm thankful for much today.

Have a great Lord's day!

Oh, I hope you're feeling better soon! In the last 3 weeks, my entire family has been on antibiotics! If you have to have your surgery closer to Thanksgiving, MAYBE you can really milk it and your family will do all the cleaning and household projects! I would certainly give that a try!

Do your body a favor and rest! Prayers to you!

Love and Hugs, Leslie

Has the food helped? Otto has only been on it for a week, but I'm not seeing much of an improvement.

Happy birthday to all of them.

Take care of yourself. I have read of so many people with it right now. It does not sound like fun.

Happy birthday to your sisters - and I hope you get well soon - I didn't know you were sick!

Happy Birthday Sister's. My brothers birthday is today, mine is next weekend. I think that this year you should let someone else do Thanksgiving, you rest.
((HUGS)) Hope you feel better soon.
I have severe asthma so I know how you feel.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather and may have to postpone your surgery...Hope you feel better real soon!

I must admit, I was quite impressed when you were talking of sculpting something and painting something! I was thinking, "WOW!" And then I read the next line...and laughed!

Have a blessed week!

Katie and Beau said...

Hope you feel better soon. I know you hate to be sick.

Wish we could have celebrated together! Maybe next year...

Don't worry, I'll sculpt or paint a picture for you..............I will come help before Thanksgiving...I promise you don't have to clean, it will be a huge mess afterwards no matter how clean it is to start with. And we will all bring the food!! Well, you do have to make the sweet potatoe casserole...j/k I will make it.
