Come Sit a Spell

Hello Friends,  I hope your weekend has been blessed thus far. It's been a beautiful day here . I got out and about with my daughter Regina today. We had a nice lunch, went to a local thrift store,where we found a few goodies then on to Walmart for our regular shopping.  Regina got her hair washed and trim in the salon at Walmart as well. It was a fun day for the both of us, but tiring too.
Some of you have been asking how I'm doings so I'll just give you a little update . My last visit to the doctor was on March 4th. At that time I'd lost 36 lbs total. My next visit will be April 7th at which time I will weigh in again. I feel fine as far as the surgery goes. My incisions have healed, but it will take sometime to heal completely internally.  I've really not had many problems at all. Just getting used to changes in diet, etc.
A therapist comes twice a week to help me with exercising, because of my horrible knees.  Emotionally I'm doing better. Not that the trouble has gone away, but God is giving me strength to bear the burden. I'm trusting that he is working it all out for our good. Thank you all who have sent up prayers for me, I've certainly felt them.

One of my readers mentioned she would like for me to share a post from around my little mobile cottage, so I'm going to be snapping some pictures and I'll be sharing them soon. I have made a few little changes here and there. A bit of spring cleaning as well. My home isn't beautiful by no means, but I'm grateful for it, to be sure! It's cozy and quaint.  When my Pastor visited recently he said it felt quite peaceful to him. I was very pleased he thought so.

Blessings to you all ♡
