I talked to Frances last night, and she can stay late Friday evening, in case traffic runs us late getting home from the doctor’s, and she can stay with Daddy on Tuesday. So I’m all set to keep both of the doctor’s appointments. I’ve been doing a lot of searching on the Internet, and it looks like the Insomnia is just another one of those Parkinson’s symptoms that a lot of people get, but most people don’t know about. Let’s face it. The only thing most people know about Parkinson’s is that you shake, right? And I don’t even do that! LOL!
My dear sweet hubby went all the way to Birmingham yesterday to grocery shop, just so he could get me some Soy yogurt. I was rationing the little bit we had left from our last stop in town, and he knew it. So now I have enough to have one every day for awhile. They’re full of cultures, taste good, and my tummy doesn’t complain. That’s a good combination for me right now.
God gave me an angel in disguise when I “found” this wonderful man. We met at church, too! He’s a gentle soul, who would do anything in the world for me, and I feel the same way about him. We’ve been deeply in love with each other for 46 years now, as it was surely love at first sight when we met. I can’t even write this without getting tears in my eyes, just thinking about him.
God has been so good to us, with two wonderful children, two fine son in laws, and three great grandchildren. I need to spend more of my time being thankful for all the blessings in my life, instead of dwelling on my present discomforts.
I think about all the horror stories on the evening news, with children being beaten to death by their own mothers and put in microwaves, and it makes me realize how very fortunate I am to love and be loved by so many family members. I take so much for granted, and that’s a sin that I need to repent of and make a conscious effort to cleanse from my life. Thank you, God, for your very near presence with me today. Amen.
