DAY 249 A One Paw Day

Hello Journal & Friends,

I've been thinking all morning what to say.... and I am just flat... empty... busted.

I could've written a chirpy post about how sometimes we feel worse before we feel better.

I could've expounded upon the virtues of a positive attitude.

I could've talked about being patient, and this too shall pass.

Instead, I think I'll just go and throw up!

Yesterday I went to the doctor, and he stuck a needle in my hand to numb my finger. Then he stuck a scapel in the finger, and drained out the infection. With that throbbing pressure gone, I actually slept last night, yay!!

Now I'm on 3 different antibiotics, and my body is protesting. It's asking me if I got the license of the truck that ran over me!

Sometimes, we really do feel worse before we feel better. Sometimes we have to do things we would rather not, but the results later are worth it.

And sometimes we have to type with one paw till things improve. So, this is long enough!

From Dr Phil's book: "What you really want is to feel better about yourself."

My verse for today: "I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!"

My quote for today: "You're in pretty good shape for the shape you are in." --Dr Seuss

Enjoy the Journey,

Aw, Loretta! *hugs*

I have days where I just can't muster a thought to write.

You have such a fertile, prolific mind and a much needed rest is deserved, methinks. :D

I'm glad that you got your finger treated and that you had a good sleep to go with it. Rest your little paw and I hope that you heal fast.

Well, worse for wear you may be, but that was a great post! Rest, sleep it off--and I'm joining you in praise of our great God! :D Deb

ouch. that sounds terrible. I hope you feel better soon. There are days what I want to write isn't printable...and that's when you'll see a rundown of my calories and
It's either that or I am flat our of inspiration.
Good typing with the good paw.

I love the honesty of your blog. Everyone feels the way you feel now at some point. One thing I know for sure is that it doesn't last forever, and the sun shines again. It will shine on you as well.

Ugh, that sounds miserable! I'm glad to hear it's out of the way and that you'll be back to normal soon enough. BIG HUGS!!

"Sometimes, we really do feel worse before we feel better. Sometimes we have to do things we would rather not, but the results later are worth it." Amen!
