Doing fine
a lot of body soreness
and balance not too good
this is normal
after fall like I had.

Moving slow
but for the busy one
it is difficult.

Ever Thankful
did not break something.

Look like I have been in a car wreck
and that is alright
bruises go away

Looking forward to local family on Sunday
and Jamie and girls coming tomorrow
to help assemble
my simple meal...

Thankful for wonderful Carrot cake and Pumpkin cake
made for me..

Thank you to everyone
for caring comments.

Now I hear
Maybe you need to move
and I say
I am not going anywhere...

for a good mind
and I will know if that is ever to happen

Thankful for some help
and transportation.
Major is wonderful
and will be  needed for a few weeks

Thankful for so much
and constantly repeating
words of thankfulness
for so much,...

You remind me of Robert Frost ...
I bless your spirit and pray for continued peace.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Thankfulness is the best "place" to be right now. I know that your time with family and loved ones will be a comfort as well.

No way are you going to move!!!!!!!
You have a blessed sanctuary right where you are.
You don't want to be in a busy, noisy, senior living place--Callie wouldn't like it one bit either!!!
Just carry your cell phone with you at all times so you could call in an emergency.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

As I read these comments
I think
you are all blessings
and you give me strength
to continue onward
and I must write in a better spirit
then I actually am.
