This Christmas has not been exactly the way I planned it when I retired this year. I was so excited I would have lots of time to decorate and make all the things I have planned. Sometimes things happen to put a ringer in it! For the last couple months I have been dealing with lots of pain on my right lower half of my body. The doctors tried medicines, but did not seem to work. After xrays and MRI they figured out what was wrong and now no surgery. They gave me some steroids and other pain medication and I started physical therapy, but still not much difference. Today, the doctor is trying something else in hopes I have a pain free holiday. It will just take some time, but I am so disappointed I did not get to do all those things I planned. I do have the shopping done and wrapped and hopefully tomorrow I will feel like baking. I still have so many blessings to be thankful for. I have a great husband who is my rock, two wonderful sons who were lucky enough to marry terrific girls. I love them like they were my own, and blessed me with 3 of the most beautiful grandchildren. I am so looking forward to them opening their gifts and see their joy, after all that is what is about. Thank God for all our miracles that surround each of us. Now I can fight through this pain a little longer and I know he will keep me in his hands and will be alright. Merry Christmas to all my crafting friends and I can't wait to get back at it soon with lots of goodies to share.
