Blessings

23 Oct

Being away for 11 days brings the blessings of home and family sharply into focus! I have so much to be thankful for. In short, I am so glad to be home!!!  What a blessing to be surrounded with family who loves me and wants to care for me. The challenge is to accept the love and care instead of wishing for the independence I would so much prefer.

It’s so comforting to be in your own home. My own bed, my own computer, my own nebulizer and other equipment, a friendly living room, the familiar kitchen. The list goes on and on. Things I seldom think about until I’ve been out of it.

The physical things of my home aren’t the things that bring the most comfort however.  It is the presence of a loving family. The knowing that their care comes from love, not just a job or a nice thing to do.

Absence of things also contributes to the comforting atmosphere of home. Lack of nurses, lack of noise, lack of machines, lack of doctors. All those are so important, but when I get home where none of them are, I feel like I am getting closer to that land of “health” where I am hoping to get to one of these days. To sleep the whole night through without being woke up…. ahhhhhhh

God is so good!  He met my needs in the hospital. He let me feel the comfort and strength of family and hospital staff.  Now He is seeing me through each day.  I can face each challenge, each struggle because I know the He is right here with me each step of the way.  God is in control of everything happening!

Hanging Hand Towels and Cloth Gift Bags

11 Apr

Looking for the perfect gift for Mother’s Day? I have new hanging hand towels in my etsy shop that would make great gifts for a special Mom! Plus you can put them in pretty Cloth Gift Bags.  You can find them all in the Mother’s Day section of my shop.

I was really excited to finally find some pretty towels at our local store again. For a long time they didn’t have much of anything. I have a number of gift bags, but not very many are alike. Last week a couple days I finally got really motivated and got a bunch of bags done. If you don’t see what you want in the Mother’s Day Section, take a look at the regular hanging towel section or the Party Favor / Gift Bag section.

Happy Shopping! 🙂
