“Hearing Again” Woman – #3

Posted Jan 29 2010 2:39pm

FOR TODAY… January 29, 2010

Outside my window…

It’s already 5:15 and the sun is going down. Everything looks like it is “bracing” for the winter storm on its way!

I am thinking…

… about my daughter Kyersten and the tough six months she has had. I’m so glad her God is better equipped to help her than even I! I don’t always say or do what I need to, but I’m glad she seeks Him out first when things are tough.

I am hearing…

… my son moving around the kitchen warming up a snack in the microwave. At least he eats healthy…

I am thankful for…

… for my church. It’s small, but it’s a great place. Love the pastor and our church family.

I am wearing…

… tan sweatsuit, tennis shoes and very warm socks!

A Cochlear Implant…

… is cold when you first put it on in the morning. My “Dry ‘n Store” has long cycled through by the time I wake up in the morning. That cold magnet connecting to other can be a real ZINGER of an eye-opener in the morning! Talk about a bit of a RUSH.

I am remembering…

… my friend Rick this evening. His father passed away this afternoon. Makes me remember and think of my own Dad. Wish he didn’t live so far away.

I am going…

… to do a bit of necessary shopping tomorrow morning with my daughter. I look forward to some “girl time”. If the snow holds off… I’ll go see a friend tomorrow afternoon who has been recovering from heart surgery.

I need to…

… finish up the laundry. Only one load left in the dryer! Yahoo!

A disability is NOT…

… an excuse. I see so many who use it like that. You may have to do things differently, but you can still DO. I love how Fidos For Freedom puts it… it is a disABILITY.

I am currently reading…

… Still reading, “Our Sacred Honor” by William J. Bennett. Just finished reading a letter from Abigail Adams to her eleven-year-old son, John Quincy Adams. She was taking him to task for some things. In it she penned, “Great Learning and superior abilities, should you ever possess them, will be of little value and small Estimation, unless Virtue, Honour, Truth and integrity are added to them. Adhere to those religious Sentiments and principals which were early instilled into your mind and remember that you are accountable to your Maker for all your words and actions.”

I am hoping…

… for some changes, but only if they are God’s will. Tough distinction.

From the kitchen…

… we are having leftovers tonight. Kyersten is at work, and Chris, Terry and I will delve into the refrigerator and see what we can find. There are plenty of things to choose from this past week. I come from a family of 6, and I tell ya what! I’ve yet to learn how to cook for only 4 people! It was worse before the kids came along! Terry and I were up to our eyeballs in food.

Around the house…

… I’m going to get out the light bulb to the front porch. As a matter of fact… I’m going to go out back before it gets REALLY dark and grab the ladder. If hubby sees it in the entry-way…IN the way… he is more likely to remember we need that bulb changed. I worry about Kyersten coming home so late from work and no light save the headlights from her car. I’ve asked for several weeks… but hubby is home when it is already dark! Hopefully my “gentle reminders” will help him get it done during daylight hours this weekend. (Aren’t I a stinker?)

One of my favorite things…

Oikos yogurt. Am I strange, or what? I love the plain Oikos Greek-style yogurt. I put about a teaspoon of honey with it, and can eat a whole cup of it at a time. To me it is better than chocolate. (Kyersten, who thinks chocolate is actually one of the 5 love languages, would disagree).

My husband…

… IM’d me today just to say hello. I love it when he does that. I know he’s busy, and to get a window pop up with his “hey, whatcha doin’?” really means a lot!

My daughter…

… is grieving for the loss of her ancient Pomeranian. We had to take her to the vet yesterday to have her put to sleep. I came home from school to find her in her crate covered in blood. I’ll save you the entire description, but we knew it was time. I cleaned her up and sat with her quietly while we waited for Kyersten to get home as soon as she could so that she could say goodbye.

My son…

… is enjoying both speech and English this semester. He is taking Geometry from home using “Math-U-See”. The Geometry he can live without. (sigh)

My assistance dog…

… adores the Schwan man. He came today with our order, and she just thinks he’s “the living end”. She is all a-wag, and greets him like a long-lost pack member.

A picture to share from this week…
