For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Saturday - Something to think about . . . .



Today's Diary Entry on my grateful journal:

"In everyone's life at some time,
our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter
with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people
who rekindle the human spirit."
~ Albert Schweitzer


I think I am almost 'back' - whatever that means. And I really think a lot of it is because of all of you!

So thanks. THANKS I SAY AND I MEAN IT. You all have been so supportive and positive. You have written me and been there for me. I went through a couple days of tears and depression - wondering if I was ever going to be me again (?)




You accepted me - no matter what mood I was in and now I think I'm on the other side. I'm glad I had the surgery and I'm glad it's over. Still hobbling a bit and a little pain, but I think for the biggest part it's over. SO THANK YOU I SAY!

And now I want to Pay It Forward (I just watched that movie).

I think this guy is cute and cuddly. Reminds of of Disco - our dog. Another entry in my grateful journal - never been able to have a dog before due to allergies and then a miracle -



So thanks again for all your prayers and cares.

Sandie, since I am new to your blog, I will go back in time learn more. I knew you were having PT and I'm glad you are near the end of that. Stay strong and you will be "back" don't worry. Ann

Hey Sandie!

I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better than you were before! It won't be long before the past few weeks will be just a memory.

Hope you have a Wonderful Weekend!

I'm so glad the cloud of recovery is lifting and you're feeling a spark of normal again.

I love that quote at the beginning. You always find the best quotes, you know.

Glad you are on the mend. That puppy is so cute!

Hi Sandie...SOoooo glad you are better. You are a wonder. Glad you can keep Disco, too.

That movie, Pay It Forward, was really good. SO, SO SAD, though.

Sandie, I couldn't be happier to hear that you're doing better. I can't even imagine what an ordeal these past few weeks have been.

I'll take "you" any way I can - grumpy, happy, in pain, depressed, chatty - you name it, I just cherish my friendship with Sandie!

So happy about the miracle of Disco - learn from his unconditional love and joy!

GOD BLESS!

We can all find blessings, if only we'd be smart enough to look! You always do, so they're always there! Glad that you're up and at 'em again.

Ginny said...

Well, I did not ever see you in a bad mood, even with all you went through! You kept us informed and at the same time did no whining! So you truly live up to your ideals even under fire, Sandie! Well done, I am proud of you!! Lots of us probably, including me, would be turning to our wonderful blog friends for comfort and help, you tried never to do that and didn't change a bit through the whole thing!

Just Be Real said...

Sandie, toooooo precious. Dear one glad you are on the mend. Blessings.

Life is good! said...

BECKY said...

Sandie! I love all the photos and YOU, too, of course! So glad you're feeling better! We all have our ups and downs, so I'm sure nobody minded if you were a little down for awhile! (you deserved to be, anyway!)

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

oh thank goodness Sandie, I'm so happy you are doing better and you are not in as much pain. I'm sure you have a long list of things you have been wanting to do but take it easy, it will all be done in time. ~Hugs

Sandie, it is wonderful to hear that you are feeling better. Do you know that you are one of those "people
who rekindle the human spirit." Love your always uplifting blog and you are still in my prayers.

Well, I can't speak for the rest, but as for me, I can tell you that I would think a lot more of you if you paid better.
