Counting Our Blessings - LinkUp!

Hello, dear friends!! I'm a little late in getting this post up, but it's still Tuesday so all is good, right? :)  It's been a rather tough week for me again. I had a back injection last Tuesday and all did not go well. The doctor used a different sedation than I normally have and it didn't feel exactly right. Plus, I got the hiccups! The shot went a little wonky as the needle hit the spinal fluid and I had a headache all week and was rather sick to my stomach. Anyway, I am feeling better today and that's my number one blessing for the week!

34.  I have to tell you all, again, how very thankful I am for my husband. This man has been through so much himself and then all these things that happened to me in the past few years. Most people would be just sick and tired of dealing with someone with the health issues I've had, but not my hubby. I spent this last week pretty much in my jammies either sleeping or doing nothing and he never complains. In fact, he will check on me and see if I need iced tea or water and listen to me when I'm needing to lament my sad fate. lol I am so thankful for such a loving man who cares so much for me, no matter what. Huge blessing, that man of mine!

35.  When I was able, I did pull out the little ornaments I'm working on. I'm stitching a fox for my oldest son and here's my progress.

I love little foxes and I will probably make myself one of these ornaments as well. I love these little ornaments from the British magazine, "Enjoy Cross Stitch". They are wonderful for when you want to do something small and lovely! My cross stitch has always been such a blessings to me and continues to be something that I adore and brings me such peace.

36.  Speaking of cross stitch...I decided to move my cross stitch stand from my bedroom to the living room. I have been feeling rather isolated of late and realized that I spend way too much time in my bedroom alone. It's been easy to get into that rut in that past couple of years but it's not a good thing. I will be able to sit out in the living room, with my hubby, and do my cross stitch. I should have done this a long time ago but am so glad that I finally realized I needed to do this.

37.  We didn't celebrate Easter on Easter day because I wasn't feeling well. In fact, we are celebrating today! I ordered this adorable cake from Safeway about 2 weeks before Easter when I saw it in the case in the Bakery. I couldn't resist!! We picked it up on Saturday an did have that on Sunday. Here's a picture of the adorable thing...

Isn't it cute? The sides have flowers all over them, which I thought really added to it.

We don't really order cakes like this, as a rule, but it was really fun to do so and it brightened our Easter! We need to do more of these types of these things in our lives, once in a while, as life is too short not to be enjoyed. Blessings!

  1. Oh Julie, I know just how you feel. I have had a bad headache for three weeks now after my injection in my neck. The doctor wants to recheck me, next week!! I am glad you are better dear.

  2. Oh, bless your dear heart! I do trust Jesus to make you well. Your husband sounds like a gem...God has blessed me with one, too. I cannot tell you how he has stood by me through my tribulations over the past almost 28 years. God is SO good to us, Julie. We surely owe Him everything. I do hope you feel better soon, sweet friend. Thank you for hosting. :)

  3. Be better. I have a wonderful man too for 46 years now. Thanks so much for the link-up.
