C-pap..more info added at bottom

Well, it is official. I already knew it, but I do have
sleep apnea.
Yesterday I went and got my C-pap machine.
It is so little and the hose and mask hooks up to it.
I slept with it last night and did pretty good.
I am praying that this will help with the daytime fatigue
that has been so debilitating. I am committed to sleeping with this.
The lady who worked with my told me her aunt died of untreated
sleep apnea. I know things like this take awhile to get used to.
So my desire is that I will be able to do it, and I will finally get
some decent sleep.
This might help explain things more, right now I am trying a nasal mask...the picture isn't exact but you get the idea:

Bloomin' Rhodi's

My Rhododendron is finally blooming.
They are coming alive all over our countryside
It is also our state flower.

Thank you--to yours and mine who have served

This is the grave of my younger brother. We went out last Memorial Day
and visited the National Cemetary. He did not die in war, but was a
veteran with the priviledge of being buried in a National Cemetary.

A very sobering place to be

Thank you to those in my family who have served:
John T.
Thank you to those of you serving and the families.

to be a blessing

With prices rising , I was thinking of ways to help my budget.
I think when you find a deal, try to buy a few extras of that item.
Check the expiration dates on the cans/packages first.
When you get home, put them in the back
and don't forget to rotate your food.
Purchase extras for those who are being more affected by these
*tight times*
You know who they are:
** the elderly in your church
** the couple that barely is making it
** students
** someone on fixed income
Have you ever had tough times
when a bag of assorted foods would have made
I do believe that were meant to be blessings to others
What ideas do you have?
Matthew 25:40
And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me.

It's not so bad, really

Yes, gas is high
yes, food costs are going up &
this election stuff is getting crazy
but really it's not so bad.
Read the above verse
and I think you will agree.
The BEST is yet to come
for those of us
who are HIS

Thrift shop stitchery

Another THRIFT SHOP find
don't know if you can see the detail
but to me it represents work, tossed aside
to be rescued.
Cost $ 1.99
I love bargains like this.

Daniel Webster Quote

My Pastor, included this quote in his sermon Sunday Evening
sure convicted me.

"The most important idea I ever thought,
was the day I realized,
that I am personally and individually
accountable to God for how I lived."

~~~Where I blog

These are pictures of where I blog.
It is in my living room.
Yes, I sit on my recliner, feet up
and balance my *Della* on one propped up leg
My sweet dog,Chloe, is usually squeezed in next to me.
I use a wireless mouse on the arm of my chair.
I am careful and usually have something to drink next to me.
As I am typing this, it is ice tea

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway
I will do the best I can separating
everything into several piles and will mail
next week.
Remember *Every comment counts*
