My blog is a way for me to share in the wonder of each day. I know there are others like me that due to medical issues have our days numbered and would like to make the most of them in a positive and gifting way for ourselves and for those around us.

It's a bird, it's a's a..boomerang?..

If you were given 30 seconds to figure out what word these clues were meant to depict, what would you guess? Quick now, your competing team is already it? Find out at the bottom of the blog under Pictionary.

It's about time I put up another post. I have been cleaning up my computer and trying unsuccessfully to change the background and extras on my blog site but I'm just not able to get it. I think I need to upgrade my browser or something so I can download what I want but the help desk I called sure wasn't much help. They did change some things and helped speed things up somewhat but so far no luck on the backgrounds etc.
Sometimes I just have to back up and do what's most important. My daughter, Amber, just gave me the Beautiful Blogger award below and now I need to address that and pass it on. There are a few bloggers that I've followed that have inspired me, gave me food for thought, encouraged me and many who made me laugh. I wish I could cover all who I feel deserve this but I'll try to just pick a few and hope the rest will realize their input and gifting of their time.

Amber, as my oldest child and the one who has been with me throughout her whole life, knows best all that I have gone through and she has definitely gone through it with me. Since she was 3 years old, our lives changed with the birth of her little brother, Jeremiah, who had medical problems and then died just before Amber turned 5. Since then we've gone through so many really good times and a lot of bad times too and I want to thank her for still being there with me as we face life as mother and daughter together. Thank you Amber.

Brenda and I became sister's when she was just 5 and I was almost 10. I had lost my mother in a car accident and she lost her father from a heart attack. I always wanted a little sister since I already had two brothers. When our parents married, I not only gained my biggest wish for a sister, but I also gained 2 more brothers. The next little brother was born 2 years later. Wow was I blessed. Brenda and I spent many years away from each other as adults but the last several years we have gotten our sisterhood back together again. I so appreciate her love and understanding and help along the way. I love her blog and I've seen how it touches so many people in a wonderful and positive way. Thank you sister.

Mr. Putz is my hero. Even with medical issues and the discomfort he goes through each day, he never dwells on all that but puts himself out there for all to see. He isn't perfect and sometimes a little off the wall (I'm smiling when I say this Putz), but he is always up for a fun post or comment. He keeps me guessing and he keeps me aware that we are all different and can still see the good in our lives and even in our pasts. Putz gives a great sense of what life has been like in years past from a first person perspective and that keeps me coming back for more.

Nadine Z. is a writer with her first novel published last year. I am so proud to know her to some little degree but I also want to complete my first novel and get it published, hopefully sooner rather than later. She has been an inspiration to me that it can be accomplished and I can really do it too. She has a great facebook page that is mostly geared for people interested in writing and she posts tiny little assignments to complete simple stories on her comment section. It is fun and keeps my imagination in gear and I can see what other's post and how they write also. I really appreciate her blog because she is true to her writing life and her personal one too. Thank you Nadine for your inspiration.

Cruisemom is a new mom but not also. She has several kids and talks about her life as a mom in a large family. I can relate to her because I was from a large family and I had a large family myself. Faith sure does help and I enjoy her viewpoint because I agree with 99.9% of what she thinks about raising kids. Thank you for reminding me of what it's like to raise many kids and still try to have time for yourself.

6. Why yes I am crazy thank you for asking
Her blog has such humor in every post and yet so much truth to it that I can't help but laugh and nod my head at the same time. It refreshes me to be able to read someone else's thought and laugh out loud. Thank your for the laughs I've enjoyed.

I could list more but then I wouldn't be able to keep your attention long enough to say that my health is somewhat better right now and I'm enjoying it. The subcutaneous method of administering my remodulin seems to be working but I'll see the specialist in Denver on Friday to make sure my heart is still doing ok and not working too hard.
I even enjoyed having family members come to our house last night for a great time of games. We started out with Pictionary. I had a large dry erase board on an easel and we divided up into two groups, men against women of course. It was a riot! The most fun/embarassing one was when I had to draw something to depict a 'porta-potty'. You can imagine what that entailed and what kind of guesses were thrown around, just ask Brenda :). By the way, the clues at the top of the post are what our brother, Jim used to get the correct answer which was 'Nerd'.
Amber watched all the kids so we could have some adult time to play games but next time she and her husband will be in on the act and that's a fact. ha.

Ok, I've done my part and filled you in on a few thoughts I have about other people you may be blogging with too. If you haven't, then please go check them out and I'm sure they will be thrilled that you looked in on them and hopefully will give them a comment.

When at first you don't succeed and don't succeed and don't succeed yet again, then don't call me, call someone else, please! Not really, just kidding. Call a freind for some sympathy at least!

Yep, that was an hilariously fun time we had last night!
But just remember, I said what I said because of the great drawing you drew! (btw, is poo-poo actually hyphenated?!! hehe!)
Thanks for your kind words. You're stuck with me!

Love ya.
