I know I usually spend my monthly updates giving you a rundown of ears, eyes, neck/shoulder/jaw, walking, pain levels, etc. Today, I just don't have it in me. If you want to know all that, I'm afraid you will have to go searching through this last month's posts. I'm feeling rather drained these days. I know I have so very much to be thankful for. I can't focus on that if I'm recounting to you all the areas where I'm still struggling. I just don't have the mental reserves to do both.
Sixteen months ago I should have died, came very close to doing so. Today I'm fighting for my spirit to embrace life, find beauty in living again (to offset a bit of the homesickness). I won't lie. It is very much a struggle, but I am trying!
I know it isn't the usual, but I thought today I would share a few more of my favorite Pintrest boards, because they focus on calmness and embracing the beauty my sole is striving to recapture:
Cats, Bears and Other Cute Critters
Paths (one of my very favorite collections - can you suggest a better name?)
Coming Up Roses
I <3 Hats (my just for fun area)
Wheels (I can't even ride a bike anymore, but think they have such romantic form.)
This is far from an exhaustive list of all of my boards, but a highlight of a few favorites. :)
And not a "favorite," but one that may interest you:
Anyone know how to add buttons to my blog, like those little link buttons to Facebook, Pintrest, Twitter, etc?
I do want to point out, friends, that time is of the essence. There is no time to waste, so don’t complicate your lives unnecessarily. Keep it simple—in marriage, grief, joy, whatever. Even in ordinary things—your daily routines of shopping, and so on. Deal as sparingly as possible with the things the world thrusts on you. This world as you see it is on its way out. - 1 Corinthians 7:29-31 (The Message)
