Sick, but being thankful!

I have been at home in the last few days now because I have not feeling well. But still thankful that someone can work for me when I am not capable and still have my salary.

Thankful that I can still read and write when my body is aching and  I feel so weak.

Yes, God reminds me of that when I began to feel sorry for myself and irritated because I can't do things that I normally do when I am well.

Anyway, this morning God reminds me to see the bright sides of life no matter what is happening in my life.

As I ponder, I realized how truly blessed I am.

So I thank God for my grandson Zimon  who is going to celebrate his birthday in the month of February! He has been sick all the time and I am so happy that now he is turning eight.
Zimon has been an active boy. He loves to dance and he dance very well too. The comedian in the family. I pray to God that you will be strong spirit, soul and body as you grow up. I love you very much!




This card is for you just in case you would not receive the card I sent to you by post! And I hope mama buy a nice gift from me from the money I sent to you as birthday gift.



More to be thankful about:

Thankful for the awesome sunrises that I can see through my bedroom window.









Thankful to see this bird peacefuly sitting on the snow!

Thankful for the small birds sitting on this tree!


Thankful that although that this tree seems dead, but there is life in it. And in spring it will sprout again with green leaves.



Thankful for my hubby who asked  me today what he can buy for me  in the shop to make me feel better. Something good or something sweet or something that smell nice. Thankful that he cares. And  for preparing food for us. 


Thankful to have a warm  home to protect us from the cold outside.

Yes, I have a lot to be thankful  for, although I am sick. And I know that I will be better again. Thanks God for reminding me.



                                                                           JOY

  16. Hello, Joy!

    I was thinking of you today. I am happy that due to the increasing government reports and payments that are now online, my office agreed to restore my connection.

    So I can now take a peep at you guys..... only when not too busy though.

    I pray that you are getting better now, Joy. Take your time and do not be irritable when during such times when the body requires rest, that you can't do the usual. Relax and it is good that you are counting your blessing instead.

    Great for your grandson Zimon to have a granny like you wishing him the best.

    Hugs and may you get well soonest.
