From My Heart

Today is my day off from work this week. I have so much to do! I woke up feeling bad and feeling like I'm having a Fibromyalgia flare-up. My plan is to get busy with work around the cottage and not letting the pain get to me too bad. I have been off of pain medicine for over a month now or maybe longer.

I just wanted to do a short post today for someone special to me. I bought her this little bowl on line a couple of weeks ago for her birthday. I haven't been able to get it to her yet. She loves pansies and roses and the color pink so I thought it would be perfect for her. I also like that it says "From my Heart" on the back of it. I'm giving her this little dish from my heart. I'm not gonna say who she is right now because I want to surprise her. She reads my blog all of the time. She will know probably know that it is she whom I'm talking about when she reads this post. I will go and visit her soon and take it to her.
Last night was my little boy's play at his school. It was called "Character Matters" and he played a mirror. He was so cute! I tried to get pictures but they didn't come out too well. It was so crowded in there! I have to tell you the sweetest thing that he said to me on the way to the play. He asked me if I was going to wear what I had on. I had worn a white 'prairie' skirt and a pink lacy top with pink shoes with roses on them to work and I didn't have time to go home and change so I decided to go just as I was. Anyway, when he asked me that, I ask him "Why?" and "Is this okay?" He smiled his sweet little smile and said "Yes Mam, It is pretty...just like my mama." He almost brought tears to my eyes. Then he said..."Keeping Mississippi Beautiful". I looked at him and he was looking so sweet and we both just started laughing! Where do kids learn all of this stuff? I told him I was gonna put it on my blog and he started acting really silly then. He says that he is gonna get his own blog and put a bunch of pictures on it! He is so much like me sometimes that it is scary! He is only fixing to turn 8 so I don't have to worry about the blogging thing yet! LOL

Hi Lee, I feel so badly for you with your fibro pain. I know how it is as I too no pain first hand. I hope your able to go slow and easy and let it ride it course out as I do. Email me if you ever want to talk or vent. I know I sometimes when I speak it, it seems to help mentally if nothing else. For the longest time doctors thought I had fibro and it was only recently we really found out what was wrong. But during that time, I learned everything I could about it so trust me when I say, I feel for you.

I will say a specific prayer for you my dear and pray you'll be up and around in no time. For now, try to pamper yourself a little more than usual. Hugs sweetie and feel better.

What a sweet plate! Your baby boy sounds like quite the charmer and quite the little southern gentleman, what a sweetheart!!!!! I hope you're feeling better today my friend, my heart goes out to you. Take it easy and enjoy your day!! ♥ Teresa

I hate knowing that you hurt so much and that there is nothing I can do to make it go away. I do what I can to make it easier for you. Just know, I understand, and reading the books on fibro we have bought and searching on the web has helped me.

Now, the play......it was fun and Garrett enjoyed it so much. He and Hailey enjoyed going to Pizza Hut to eat afterwards. I am sorry that the pictures didn't come out too good. Maybe we can upgrade on a camera that has a larger zoom?

I am proud of you.....making yourself get up yesterday and do some stuff around the house that you wanted to do. I can see that it does make you feel better....mentally and physically.
My heart goes out to you,
Stevie

I'm sure your friend will love it...not only is it beautiful but it is obviously being given with love. And your son is the sweetest thing! All momma's should get to hear those words. I loved the "keeping Mississippi beautiful" What a little doll! I'm betting he is going to be able to sweet talk all the ladies when he grows up!
