After spending a little time here today for more poking and prodding, I get a little break while my good doctors continue to try and find out what the heck is going on with me.I'm hopin that I'll feel up to a little baking, using a few of our favorite recipes from this book; Betty Crocker's Cooky Book
And after spending a week on a Sugar Free diet, a week on a Gluten Free diet, a week on a Dairy Free diet, and going NPO ions of times in the last several weeks. I'll for sure be drinkin a bit of this. (Safeway's Lucerne is my favorite). And when I'm sippin a bit of the nog it's always accompanied by a little bit of this; mmmmm.....
I have two biggerish projects that I'm hoping to finish in time for gift giving on Friday. Wish me luck, I'll need it. Sewing has been a bit interesting. I do much better standing up these days. (for whatever reason sitting makes the pain more severe). So hubby helped me do this; I've become quite adept at sewing while standing. I'm hopin to cross off a couple more of the UFO's on my list for Jacquie's JOY IN THE NEW YEAR CHALLENGE.
I've had a lot of time to reflect on things in the past several weeks. And although my health has failed me a bit during my most favorite time of year and made things a bit challenging and depressing at times. I realize that I have much to be Thankful for, and I count my blessings each day. As I close out my post today, I'd like to share one of our family's blessings from a Chirstmas past with you.
Several years ago things were pretty tight for our family and it was going to be a very slim Christmas. An Express Mail envelope arrived at our front door a few days before Christmas. No return address and the card was signed, "Santa's Elf No.6" with a gift card of a substantial amount tucked inside.
A Christmas doesn't go by that my husband and I don't think about the generous person(s) who were watching over our family that year. And no, we never found out who Elf No. 6 was.
If Elf No. 6 is reading this now. I just want to tell you Thank You. It was a wonderful blessing for our family and we have paid it forward many Christmas' since. Thank you....
In case I don't get back here before the big day. I want to wish ALL of YOU a Very Merry Christmas and May God Bless You and Your's in the New Year! ooxx`jodi
