Whiney girl

I am whinning..yes officially. No sympathy--but I was just getting better and now another COLD---it's in my head, my glands are swollen and frankly I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Soooo...what does this picture have to do with having another cold? Not a THING---it was taken of my beloved and I with our little grandson Isaac....and since I haven't posted a personal picture lately, Voila !! It is only a couple of months old...

So...today I am in a Grace Livingston Hill book ,"Beauty for Ashes" which is excellant and is allowing me to rest, once again....it is a very encouraging book. What I like about her books, is that when people are saved, their lives are changed. They are changed in visible ways and she mentions these ways in the books in such a gentle way.

Hope none of you get a second dose of whatever is going around. I don't like feeling like this as it seems like you get so SELF-focused or is it just me?

I love GLH books too!

Take care of yourself, Deby. When you're sick, you NEED to focus on yourself so you will get well!

Sorry you are not feeling well Deby. That flu is horrible and hitting many folks. I am thankful..my DH and I have not gotten it. The weather certainly calls for the FLU here...hot,cold, warm..and now maybe even SNOW this weekend! rare! But, I love that it proves global warming is OUT! and GOD is in control.

Naturally we focus on self...just like the big toe...you don't know it's there til it hurts!

Take care and keep up the good reading!

Dear Deby, Not another bug! Ugh... sure hope you will be healthy and over all of this not feeling well junk very soon! Sweet picture of you and your husband and adorable grandson :)

Susan B said...

What a sweet family picture! I'm so sorry that you are feeling sick. Try to get lots of rest, eat chicken soup, drink lots of fluids. And enjoy your reading! That is always a good way to relax when you are sick, and helps you fall asleep too. Take care of yourself.

Goodness. Lots of folks are sick. But then that happens in late winter. Love the picture. Feel better soon.

What a sweet picture Deby!

I hope this one doesn't last very long and that you feel better soon.

I don't think I've read that GLH book so will be on the look-out for it ... I have read many of hers and truly enjoy them!

I love the fact that her saved characters always take whatever is bothering them to the Lord and pray about the situation before acting ~ an excellent reminder to me!

Blessings!

Deby, for goodness sakes, how can you be sick again! You system must really be worn down. Can you take some vitamins or something? Please try to get more rest. Praying you will be well soon.

Love and Hugs,
Cathy

You are not alone Deby feeling that way. God healed me of a liver disease and then I get slapped with some blood clots and then now an ulcer and it isn't fun and I do get sick and tired of being sick and tired LOL. But I know that God is going to work this to my good somehow and that keeps my spirits up! :)

Great photo of the three of you. I am sorry you are under the weather again. Hope you can rest and feel better over the weekend.

I hope this second round of the cold is short-lived, Deby. Keep drinking all the H2O you can and rest much. ;)

Mrs. Rabe said...

Rest and enjoy your reading - I am sorry you are feeling unwell again!

Your photo is wonderful!

Oh Deby,

So sorry that you're still under the weather. It IS all consuming, but when you feel that bad it is bound to be. Rest and read!

Dear Deby - I have noticed that the cold going around here in SW Florida is the same way. It comes and goes and generally sets out to make you MISERABLE. You poor girl - a GLH book is the PERFECT thing. Just get yourself some milk and crackers and you'll be set! LOL!

Seriously, GLH is my favorite author. I'm always reading one of her novels. Such a simple time.

God bless you, Hun. I love the photo!

Linda said...

I understand Deby and am so sorry to hear you're sick with a cold again. It really can get you down.
I think relaxing with a GLH book is a very good "cure". Take care of yourself. Praying you feel really well very soon.

Pam said...

Deby, so sorry to hear this, but yes, I've had it twice! Do you think you and I are more at risk for this due to our auto-immune diseases?

lady jane said...

They say misery loves company...

from one sickie to another, pass the lotion infused tissue please.

Deby,
I'm so sorry you are sick with another cold! This flu thing is hanging on. I feel better, but the energy hasn't come back yet, and this cough won't go away! So, I guess I'm focusing on myself, too. :) Pray for me as I pray for you.
