Happy With Hubby

When are you most happy?

This is gonna sound weird but I am happiest when laying in bed with my husband. I feel safe and loved and I thank God every day for bringing this wonderful man into my life. He loves me in a way I’ve never been loved before.

March 17 will be our 6 year anniversary and I am the happiest I’ve ever been. I love you Cedric! 💕💕💕

Questionable Last Year vs Spectacular This Year

Is your life today what you pictured a year ago?

Last year I was wondering how I was going to be able to pay for dental implants. God worked that out and I am getting my implants free of charge from the VA Hospital!

Last year I was wondering how we were going to be able to afford to move and get a yard for Moki. God has provided a promotion to a Federal Job for my husband and we have been approved for a very spacious townhome with a yard!

Last year my son was worried about not making enough money on his job to pay his rent. God has provided him with a new job that he loves and he’s interested in making a career out of!

God has been so good to my family and I will always give Him the credit He is due. Without God, I don’t know where I would be!

How does YOUR life look different from a year ago?

Ageing is Scaring Me…

I’m beginning to notice something. I am more afraid than I used to be; of ageing. I watch tv and I see so many commercials about this illness and that one, and it affects me differently than it used to. I have to purposely stop my thoughts from running away with me.

I’m 51 years old now with a few health conditions and sometimes the future of my health scares me. I hate to admit that, but there it is. Aging is scary. I’m not even sure I can finish this post.

Lord, please just keep your hands on me.

Packing and Coughing

Packing and coughing! So much crap since my last blog post! It’s funny how I mentioned the devil and there he came!

Last time I was here I was talking about how my husband was sick. Oh, my goodness! I ended up getting exactly what he had. Only mine was worse. To be honest I’m still a little under the weather and at this point I’m realizing that I keep having issues with my blood pressure dropping. I’m not sure what’s causing it but I’ll have to talk to my doctor soon and find out.

At this time when everything is going wonderfully and we are both so excited about everything, I go and get sick, which puts a damper on the whole thing, but that’s okay because I’m nearing the end of it.

The apartment is filling up with boxes slowly but surely. I expect to feel better tomorrow and will be able to continue the packing my husband started this weekend. We both feel a new beginning coming on!

Blessings vs Distractions

It’s amazing how when God starts blessing you the devil always steps in to try to distract you!

God is doing so many amazing things in our life right now.

  • We are moving to a townhouse next month. We have been waiting to get into this place for a minute!
  • Hubby is starting his new Federal job tomorrow!

He was just notified on Friday and then woke up on Saturday SICK! We have him on TheraFlu and I’m praying hard that he feels better soon! But thankfully, his first 3 days of orientation are virtual, so he won’t have to go anywhere until Thursday. We will have him well by then!

Even though he is sick, he is still extremely excited and so am I! We have been so stressed out waiting for these two things to come through and now that they have, we can focus on moving forward! I can now go back to doing what I need to do health wise. Sometimes when things get stupid, it’s hard to stay focused on things like exercise and eating healthy. But since I’ve hit 50, it’s become mandatory!

Thank you, Lord, for all your blessings!

Impressions for Finals: Dental Implants

I had the first of my five FINAL appointments for my dental implants! They changed out the abutments (caps), and then took upper and lower impressions for my final set. I go back next week to do a different kind of impression; I don’t know anything more than that and then I have one more appointment a week later.

After those three appointments, I’ll be waiting for my final set to be made! Yay! I can’t believe it’s been 9 months! OMG! This has been a long and tedious process, but I see from the online support group that some people have had it harder than me.

I’m thankful that I’ve had my husband and son’s support through the entire process. They have really stood by me. Alot of people in the support group have said, they were disappointed because their new smile isn’t like their old one, so I’m trying to prepare myself in the case that I look different. It’s ok if it’s different. It’s still gonna be beautiful!
