PRAYER OF SALVATION

Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned against You in the way I have lived my life. I am truly sorry and I want to turn from my selfish ways and follow You. I hand my life over to You, knowing that You have paid the price for my sin by shedding Your Blood and dying on the cross for me. Lord I ask You to forgive me for all my sins and take control of every area of my life. I receive my salvation now according to Your promise: "All who call on the name of the Lord, will be saved." Thank you Jesus.

 

 

Hope you're having a blessed day in the Lord!

Good morning to you!

  We had a fierce lightning/thunder storm come through early this morning and now it is just cloudy...68 degrees fahrenheit.

Plan for today, Lord willing, is go get Mom at the nursing home (I've already cleared it with the nurses) and take her out to an early Mother's Day lunch at Cracker Barrel.  This way, it probably won't be overcrowded like lots of restaurants are on Mother's Day on Sunday.  She LOVES Cracker Barrel and I've not told her I'm going to do this (but she knows I'm coming to take her out), so she will be very happy.  I've already been questioned by someone in our family as to don't I think it is too early for me to be taking Mom on an outing since she was in the hospital for about a month and now getting adjusted to being in a new nursing home?  Well, the wound care nurse said her feet are almost well.  She has begun receiving physical therapy to increase her physical strength, as well.  It has been almost 2 months since she has been out and about and I think it will do her good!!!  Might take her shopping, too, if she wants to and is up to it after we eat lunch together. 

Also, I want to let you know that I am looking into getting a free online journal place to change to journaling at and leaving DD because it has become overrun with ads for unhealthy ways to get to goal weights and now there are semi-nudity photos appearing on the site here as well (and y'all know that I am a Christian).  Not to seem unappreciative to the webmaster here, who cannot be expected to pay for our privilege to journal here and he said he tried to avoid the advertisements but it came down to that or goodbye DD, so thank you, DD webmaster for the privilege of journaling here since the latter part of the year 2000...wow...that's over 8 years of journaling here.  Anyway, when I get another online journaling account set up and going, I will let y'all know the new address of where I will journal at.  (It may take a day or a few days.)

Love, Maria

We've had several loud thunderstorms lately, and TONS of rain. Sun finally came back out today and I was able to walk 4 miles.

Enjoy the meal with your mom. We really like Cracker Barrel.


nimony on 05/07/2009:
Hi Maria, I agree with you that a day out and about may be just what the doctor ordered for your mom's health and spirits! Who wants to be cooped up all the time? Sounds like she's recuperating quite well. Glad to hear you have her in a new nursing home. This is probably a world of weight off your shoulders. Wow, so you've been journaling for 8 years. That's amazing. I feel good about journaling for 8 weeks, let alone 8 years! Yes, I'd be interested in knowing the new journal site you end up going to. Take care and have fun on your outing!

Good  afternoon to you! It is a pretty, sunny Sunday here in South Carolina!

After church, I visited Mom, who was sitting in her wheelchair at a table in the dining room, waiting on lunch to be served in about 20 minutes.  It would have been better had I not come to visit her today but since I promised her I would yesterday, I did.  Upon seeing me, when I sat down at the table with her (she was not alone), she insisted I ride her around in her wheelchair, something I was definitely not up to.  She likes to go outside and so I did as she asked and in getting her out of the building and fighting the big, very heavy, front door, and after wheeling her around in the parking lot and then she wanted us to sit in the rocking chairs on the front porch again, which we did, and then struggling to get her back inside and fighting the huge door while I pulled her wheelchair backwards and uphill while holding the huge, heavy door open at the same time, I finally got what I undoubtedly was asking for:  A very PAINFUL pulled muscle in my back, going all the way down my leg into my foot.  Upon my telling her I was going to take her back to the dining room as they were calling time for lunch, and that after I got her there, I was going to go home and take some tylenol and rest cause I was in pain and reminding her that yesterday I'd told her I wasn't going to stay long today, she, like a little child, insisted I not leave til she finished her lunch (and then wheel her to her bed).  She said she didn't feel safe and secure unless I was there with her and I told her Jesus is always with her and she is never alone, but she was like a little child, not wanting me to leave.  In a lot of pain, I stayed til she ate her lunch and then wheeled her back to her bed and told her I could not lift her, so she managed to get into her bed by herself and I made sure she had her bottle of fresh, cold water and her kleenex nearby and something she liked on her tv (which hangs from high up near the ceiling and there is no remote control) and  hugged her goodbye, told her I loved her and now I am home after having visited her a little over an hour and I have taken tylenol for the pain again, as I did yesterday.

............................................................................

So....why are we (some of us, that is, certainly not all of us) so COMPLACENT in getting to our goals?  I remember that last year I made a 'plan' and didn't abide by it.  So discouraging to make a plan and GAIN WEIGHT, isn't it?  Well, I'm going to say this and you may very much disagree with me but I am going to say that no doubt, we who have struggled for a long time to get to goal and haven't, are NO DOUBT, HAPPY with where we are!!!  YES WE ARE!!!!  I don't care what you say...we undoubedly are.  Might as well look at the number you are today if you've been stuck there a year or so and say to yourself...I AM HAPPY WHERE I'M AT!  Cause if we TRULY weren't, then we'd be having the right amount of calories and doing the right things to get to our goals.....NO EXCUSES!!!

...........................................................................

Today's Food:

Breaky: Plain, white toast,70 and coffee w 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp creamer 25 (95) 

Lunch: large corn on the cob, mic'd, no butter, only a little salt 200, banana 100, pkg. nekot (peanut butter) cookies 240, tea w splenda 0, water 0 (635)

Exercise: Wheeling Mom around in her wheelchair.

I hope your back is feeling better. Your comment about being complacent has me thinking. Am I really ok with my weight, since it hasn't moved in some time? I tell myself, No, but I haven't done the work needed to change it. I better get on the ball, because I certainly don't want to be complacent! Thanks for the nudge.

Good morning to you. 

Plan today, Lord willing, is visit Mom and finish getting her side of the room decorated for her with family photos, calendar, etc. and take her more clothes.  I finished washing her clothes last nite.  This morning I've been washing more clothes (not hers).

Also, to finish studying the Sunday School lesson for tomorrow morning and study for home Bible study (where we meet in a designated home of a Christian brother and/or sister about once a month instead of the usual Sunday nite church service) tomorrow nite.

A ham (Hubby bought) is thawing out to bake for Hubby's supper (I don't eat pork) and I'll probably bake some rice in with the ham when it is close to being done.

 

............................................................................

...........................................................................

Today's Food:

Breaky: Plain, wheat toast,40 and coffee w 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp creamer, apple 80(145)

Snack:  4 nekot cookies (peanut butter) 160, water 0 (305) 

Lunch: lima beans 160, tomatoes 25, pineapple in juice 70, pkg. of 6 nekot cookies 240, water 0 (800)

Supper: apple 80, mac and cheese 100, lima beans 160, tomatoes 25, pineapple in juice 70, water 0 (1235)

Snack: 3 pcs. white bread 210, water 0 (1445)

Exercise: Wheeling Mom around, decorating her half of the room, walking back and forth from the large parking lot, toting her things.

Afternoon update:  Visited Mom (who is doing real well) about 3 hours or so today...wheeled her outside and we sat in the shade on the porch in rocking chairs in the nice sunny, breezy, warm weather a while...then I encouraged her to eat lunch in the dining room with other residents, which she objected to cause her back hurt her but when I told her I'd take her lunch to her room if she needed me to, she decided to eat with the others.  Hubby's Uncle is a resident, too and I introduced Mom and him.  They rode the school bus together when growing up...also Hubby's Mom included (she passed last year).  Mom's room looks pretty good now that there are family photos out and other decorations she likes.  Her clothes are clean and hanging in her closet.  After hours of visiting, I finally bent over to hug her good bye (she was in the bed for her nap) and she didn't turn me loose when I raised back up and now I have a STRAINED, painful back muscle to match the other pulled muscle I went to the doctor about the other day.  Came home and took tylenol.

PRAYER OF SALVATION

Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned against You in the way I have lived my life. I am truly sorry and I want to turn from my selfish ways and follow You. I hand my life over to You, knowing that You have paid the price for my sin by shedding Your Blood and dying on the cross for me. Lord I ask You to forgive me for all my sins and take control of every area of my life. I receive my salvation now according to Your promise: "All who call on the name of the Lord, will be saved." Thank you Jesus.

 

 

Hope you're having a blessed day in the Lord!

 Love, Maria

Good afternoon.

Hubby is home today and after he took me to the doctor (pulled muscle), we visited Mom a couple of hours...took her a pack of fresh strawberries, a corn dog, 2 baked sweet potatoes, a pretty box of kleenexes, and some fingernail polish remover.  I trimmed her fingernails and cleaned them out (something she wanted done) while we were there.  Took her photo while there...she had on a pretty pink outfit and was in a good mood.  She took Hubby's and my photo, too.  Was surprised when the hospital's case manager announced to us before we saw Mom that Mom is being discharged Thursday...day after tomorrow...what a stressor to hear that, especially when her doctor told me the other day that Mom would be there until the latter part of next month.  Was told he doesn't know what is going on...???????.......   I am thankful Mom is doing so well, but her foot is NOT WELL YET and none of the nursing homes I've tried to get her into have a bed available for her....So, she may have to go back to the nursing home where she was neglected cause she has to have 24 hour round the clock care, including lifting her.  Also, I am in GRIEF over my Friend passing Sunday nite...I have cried and cried.

I am nauseated today since I got up this morning.  Now Hubby just came and announced we have to go buy a SECOND battery for the lawnmower (bought one last year and purchased the mower the year before) and wants me to ride with him.  I feel SO DEPRESSED.

Snack: 1/2 packMM peanuts 125 (had no business and no desire to eat candy but that was the lowest cal food in a store I could find that Hubby and I were walking around in), water 0 (950)

Sounds like you had another busy day~Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers..God bless...


selina on 04/29/2009:
Nice salad for lunch! Sorry for the many concerning issues in your life at this moment... stay well! Thanks for asking about Selina: she was doing better, she has her lamp shade thing around her neck to keep her from licking her wound, which never heals if she does that. I thought she was improving, but now she has figured out how to use the edge of her stiff "lamp shade" to scratch her wound! So, the wound is bleeding again! must think of something else....


thinnside40 on 04/29/2009:
Sorry to hear of your friend's passing, but rejoicing with you in her eternal destination....

Pulled muscle ~ Ouch..... I know how that feels!

Your Mom ~ I will pray the Dr. get their heads together to give you a 100% solid answer on her discharge date.... Do they know that you are looking for a different facitily before she is let out of the hospital?...That might help them to decide and buy you a bit more time.....Given the neglect of the one nursing home being the reason she is there in the first place

Praying you can get some peaceful rest to not allow you to get yourself physically ill....
