This is me and my Best Friend Harry at a dinner of some kind. He has been in the VA Hospital and out many times with his eyes. I have become officially his chauffeur. It keeps me feeling useful in life.
I bought the current Crochet Today! and made the Bessie Cap. I used plain Caron Soft in a beautiful soft beige and it came out quite classy. If you haven't seen the current Crochet Today! then you are missing some really nice sweater patterns.
On the PTSD front: have been having a most difficult time with nightmares. My nightmares are so detailed and complicated. Sometimes I have to wake up and "finish them in my head" so they will stop bothering me. Fibromyalgia and Chronic Lyme Disease aer also rampant. Some days I just would like to lie down and read a book without hurting. OR even read a book sitting in a chair and have no pain. I know that this, too, shall pass. So keepin' on keepin' on is the only way to go. I trust in the Lord so much and know that this cross to bear will be okay someday.
Regan is 10 yrs old and is my lap cat. He loves to be held and scratched. I am thankful that one of the cats likes to be held. I know when I am away for awhile that Bearli misses me because he has to sit next to me for hours when I come home. I am SO thankful for my boys--both cats and children, and no necessarily in that order.
When Christ comes again, I am looking forward so much to seeing my son, whole, hugging him, and just looking at him.
OK. Enough of whining and down stuff. Hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday season and that Christ is kept in CHRISTmas. Thanks for bearing with me.
