I Will Survive!
Every trouble in my life, or when you’re a dramatic teenager, “love life”…. was healed or comforted through music. God definitely created a blessing in songs.
So it only seems appropriate to share how I’m doing with a song…
I made it, and I’ve learned a few things this week:
I CAN make all of the Thanksgiving food myself, with a few “little people” helpers. Thankful for my kids.
Making that much food, required me to be on my feet for 18 hours. Ouch.
Being on my feet for 18 hours made my legs swell until my jeans wouldn’t fit, don’t cook in yoga pants next time. Normally people’s pants don’t fit after they actually EAT some food. Not always.
If you have an auto immune disease, it could take several days to recover. Prepare to sleep or walk around in a zombie-like state, for the next 3 days. Even if you don’t prepare to sleep, you’ll be doing so anyway – so write it in pen on your calendar, and bank on black Friday shopping from home.
October Baby is an awesome movie/message – and a great cleansing movie, if you’re needing to cry. If you’re not needing to cry, you’ll probably cry anyway. Something about sincere young love – gets me every time… so does God’s love. Simply beautiful.
“Though He causes grief, yet He will show compassion.”
