~To live, love, and journal our days at~

Just my thoughts!
written by Sue, February 1,2011...
Aren't they pretty? Mr P brought them home to me the other day, wanting to cheer me, knowing how much I love fresh flowers.

I was hesitant to write this post, but will anyhow. I am not much for complaining about health issues,even though I have had my share this past year. I was so looking forward to the new year, a new beginning to try and regain my health....
.... I started this year dealing with vertigo, and thought I was over it, even though the signs were still there. I also started on one of my goals this year and that was to get myself healthy, and one way was by walking. Thus I had given myself a challenge to walk 2.5 miles each day, and then to work up to 4 miles. This is  a wonderful goal, but for me it was to soon after the vertigo.I didn't allow my body to heal, and my immunity system to get built up. If you are sick, and you force your body to do something it doesn't want to, you will be the loser.

I haven't been out and about too much since the vertigo, and stayed home most days. That is why I was thrown for a loop when I came down with the flu. Being so analytical, (another personality trait) lol I wanted to find out where I got it or who gave it to me.LOL

Getting back to my analysis, of where I got this, as if it mattered by this time. That is what Mr P. kept telling me... Did I listen? No....LOL

Lets roll back to Saturday night, you know the birthday party, We were a party of twenty, at a very full, but new restaurant..... Halfway through our meal, the hostess seated two couples so close to our table, that I could have laid my hand on top of their heads and tickled their ears. No problem except, they were coughing, especially one lady,....

 Confession... at one point I wanted to go over to that lady and ask her why was she out exposing everyone to her germs, and to please cover her mouth, which she wasn't. Being the southern Belle I claim to be, I declined!!LOL But  at that moment I looked toward my dh and our eyes met(both of us was thinking the same thing), not a word was said, just shaking of heads. I didn't think anything else about it, Then!! This bug hit me as I was leaving service Sunday evening a week ago at almost exactly 24 hours later. , just a simple dry hacking cough,.. at first I thought it was nothing other than maybe some allergens. By Monday I was coughing like a choo choo train coming down the track. I began my homeopathic meds., and eating garlic like it was candy. Why am I writing about this???

I want you to be healthy!!! and it is therapy for me. LOL!

Your health is one of, if not the most valuable gift that you give yourself, as much as possible within your reach, take care of this body that God has entrusted you with(His Temple), I haven't done a very good job this past year. I quit eating right, and didn't practice a good exercise regimen, and allowed unnecessary stress to be placed upon me... Stress will play havoc on your physical, emotional and spiritual body.I can't emphasize this enough!!

I am going to stir the waters here, so hang on... When I started blogging in 2008, I was in superb health, I could run and not be weary. Once I started blogging, and didn't practice restraint nor good judgement about time on the computer, I began a decline. It is not blogging, it is the lack of self discipline that has been  in my life. I had never had joint pain, and lethargy before, but slowly it crept up on me. I gained weight, which placed pressure on my joints,and I began to look for reasons to not walk, and so I slowed down. It has been choices that I have made that has brought me to this point.

Please take care of yourself,... No matter your age, you can regain, and keep your health. This little set back is not stopping me, I am more determined than ever to be even healthier than I was before. Philippians 4:13 says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...... I know God wants me healthy, and I am encouraged to begin to begin again....

 Be very careful when you are around people who are coughing and sneezing, and wash! wash! those hands. There were only two of us who caught this bug, my young niece,and I, she is back in school, I am not! LOL
I am now on a Z pack, and am told it will be a while before I feel like my old self again, but what I want is to feel like my New Self. lol
Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and I ask for continued prayers. I hope to be back soon, Until then..
much love,

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
