Happy Thanksgiving

Hi All, I hope you are having a good and satisfying turkey day. I also hope we are counting our blessings and remembering the things we have to be thankful for. If I may I will list a few of my blessings for which I give thanks daily.
Thank you for the gift of my salvation.
Thank you for the gift of my children. They are truly a blessing to me.
Thank you for my friends and family.
Thank you for my home and car.
Thank you for meeting all of my needs according to your riches in glory.
Thank you for my pets.
Thank you for my 5 senses. Being able to see the beauty that surrounds me everyday, for being able to hear the rain on the roof, to be able to smell the turkey cooking in the oven, to feel the soft touch of one of my grandchildren's hugs.
Also thank you for the cognitive function that allows me to record these things in my memory.
I am truly blessed.
I am looking forward to black Friday tomorrow. Hope to get some real bargains.
Well I am gonna go and baste the turkey and then go take a quick nap before people start arriving to my home.
Wishing you all the best that life has to offer.

I Got a Cold

I feel like crap! I think there is a bug going around right now and it caught up with me. I just had my flu shot about 3 weeks ago. So I shouldn't be experiencing the flu but I feel like I am. My body aches somethin awful and I have a couph but no head congestion. Thank God for that. I hate head colds. If I was gonna get sick then I am glad that I got it now and not right before my surgery causing it to be postponed.
My sis had a cath put in her juglar vein today and had her first kidney dialysis. I hate that she is having to go through this. It was her having renal failure back in March that made up my mind to have weight loss surgery. I didn't want to end up like her.
Well I don't feel much like being online right now and can't think of anything good to write about so will be back when I feel better.

Yup I voted

Hi there, did you go vote yesterday? Well I did. I have my mother to thank for that. I think if I hadn't went to vote she would've turned over in her grave. She was a devout Democrat. I wonder what she would think of the Democrats today? I hate it when people go and just vote a straight ticket. I vote for each thing separately. I am unhappy that Julia Carson won again. I wanted to see her out. I think she is too old to hold office. We need some new younger blood in there. Oh well enough on that election prose. I am sick of it anyway.
I took my sister (who is 15 months older than me) to the ER yesterday and they kept her. She has been having problems with her kidneys since this past March. I wish she would get well and stay that way. I hate the thought of losing her. We are such a small family now. Mom, Dad, Aunts and Uncles are all gone. Just my brother, sister and I remain and then of course our children. But of people I grew up with there aren't alot left. Getting old isn't for sissys. It is darned hard!! Not only having a young brain and an old body but losing people you love and who love you even though they have known you through good and bad.
We are having Indian Summer here in Indiana and I am loving it. Was in the 60's today and will flirt with 70's tomorrow.
Will close this out now. More again when there is more to tell.
