The MRI is fine! Thank You God!

 The MRI showed everything is fine!
Thank you all so much for your love and support and prayers.

I have a few more issues to get checked out, 
it seems this is my time to go through some stuff.
Like everyone of you also have done!
I have been blessed with such good health for so long-so it's a different road to walk down now. It can be frustrating to do all the waiting for the right things to happen, and to see the right doctors.
It helps me to be able to come here and read what you are all doing....

I think most of my issues are just from being an old lady! I'll be 70 around the end of this year! Wow! I can hardly believe it.

I hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying spring!

Some health issues...

It makes me happy to see some of my old artwork, because I haven't been able to do anything much for a long time. So I thought I'd pop in here and tell you what has been happening with me. It's a few things, really. I have to have an MRI of my brain. I've got some symptoms-and it can be something not even related to my brain-but this is the first step in diagnosing what's going on.

Also, the dry eye can give me fits-it's hard for me to read very many blogs at once. Somedays are worse than others. Today is not so good. I won't go on and on here, but basically I've had about a year and a half of wondering what's going on with me and finding no answers. It's so frustrating and scary.

The MRI is April 11. I would love your prayers and good thoughts. I have been missing all of my blog friends so much.

Stop the Bots PLEASE!

 Itis very annoying to find hundreds of hits from Hong Kong and nearby countries on my blog. If a person is doing this, kindly stop.
Any help from readers is appreciated. I thought this problem was resolved.

The Snow and the Trees

 He had walked a long time. Snow was starting to cover his fur.
There was a place on the path where trees would bend over and cover him for the night. He pressed on through the low brush. It would be dark before he found the trees.

He stopped and listened. There was no wind, no sound, especially with the cold air full of snow falling faster than his breath. He shook his head and moved on.

Alone, all alone. The trees would seem like his kin-they would be comfort. They would protect him from the worst of the storm.

At last, there were the trees. He dug a shallow nest and curled up on the wet ground. Soon sleep covered him like a soft blanket.

It was time to dream.

Here I am

 I wanted to write something about myself and this past year. But the more I thought about what I would say, the less I wanted to write about it. It seems that the world is in a mess, and lots of people are going through very hard things. So I decided to just try to jump back on here...

So many Scriptures have helped me. So much calling, "Help!" God hears. 

It can be embarrassing to have anxiety-you feel that you have to explain yourself to some people, and then you feel foolish. You don't get it until you have experienced it-that's all. 

My husband has been so wonderful. He doesn't seem to get tired of my need for reassurance. He is beyond good-there just isn't a word big enough for how wonderful he has been.

And my blog friends who have thought of me and prayed for me-I thank you with my whole heart. I love you all.

God bless you and keep you...

Till next time-take good care.
