“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
I promise you, I have not disappeared. I had every intention of hosting the Whatever is Lovely link-up party last Friday. My body had other ideas.
Last Wednesday evening, Aug. 13, I was walking through our dark house to retrieve something from the kitchen. I walked into a dining room chair that wasn’t where it was supposed to be. It was obvious to me that a toe on my left foot was broken. I touched it and it popped. Ouch! I instantly felt light-headed. Everyone was upstairs. I settled myself down and then made my way upstairs.
I found Ed and told him that I felt like I was going to throw up or pass out. After sitting down, I did the latter. Apparently I was making odd gurgling sounds which made Ed think that I was choking. He was able to get me to the floor while my son called the ambulance.
Fortunately, I was fine. It was not necessary to go to the hospital. After all of the dust settled, I found that I had injured my left knee in some way when I fainted. I spent two days in my bedroom because I could not make it down stairs. I am still hobbling around and haven’t been doing much.
So, that’s what happened to last Friday’s blog post. I’m beginning to be able to chuckle about it. 🙂
Thank you for all of your prayers for my step-father. We were able to visit last night and he and my mom were in good spirits.

Have a great weekend! Remember Philippians 4:8. “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
