Good Monday Morning, Dear Ones!
It's the last Monday of the month and, I can honestly say, that I'll be glad to get past July. It's been a long month.
How was your week and weekend?
I barely remember the early part of the week at all...in fact...I don't remember it. Our youngest daughter and her family arrived on Wednesday. Other than that, the whole week has been a whirlwind of people and activity.
We said goodbye to my husband on Saturday. We had a Celebration of Life and potluck dinner with visiting following. There was a good turnout (standing room only) and much testimony. I feel that John had a good sendoff, but, jiminy Christmas! I can hardly stand it! I miss him so much! 😢
I am determined, though, to keep pressing forward and doing...something! I'm not sure what at the moment, but, with the Lord's help, I will figure it out. My goal today is to get the house back in order and the laundry done.
I've had a lot of company in since Saturday and, although they've all offered to help straighten things up, I've insisted that they leave it so I will have something to concentrate on and do while I think things out. Besides, I like creating order out of chaos. It will feel good to accomplish something, even if it's something small.
I am going to go ahead and just take the plunge into this week's post. There is much to be done and I need to get started.
- take one day at a time...minute by minute if necessary 🕛
- pray and seek the Lord at every turn 🙏
- write 'thank you' notes to a number of people 📧
- clean house 🏡
- do laundry 👕
- clean fridge 🍲
- take inventory of food on-hand 📜
- take a look at the finances and make a plan 💵
- finish up data entry job for work (didn't quite make it last week) 💻
- check out the new Dollar General store in town (it opens today) 💲
- celebrate granddaughter, Mercy's, 6th birthday 🎂
- just keep figuring things out (I need a lot of wisdom and direction right now) 🠊
I'm not even going to try menu planning at this point, because, the truth is, I don't even know what I've got. There is food everywhere and, until I start sorting through it and figuring out what's what I have no idea where I'm headed with any of it. BUT...after I get everything sorted and figured out...it's going to be a whole 'nother story! I've done nothing for six months but sit in hospitals and at home stress-eating whatever. It's time to put the brakes on and get back on track with my own health. Putting the Word first coupled with good food and getting back to walking! THAT has got to be my #1 focus in the days ahead...period!!!
My Husband's Bible and Magnifying Glass
I guess that's it for now. I do hope to visit with you all more in the days ahead. I've just got to get my head straightened out a bit and figure out what's what. Bear with me and, please, pray for me. I've got to figure out how to embrace this season in my life and make it work. I love you all!
