Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I am still down with the infection, no more pain, but just feeling not good, everyone says it is the antibiotics, which I have not had for 37 years. I have 3 more days to go.
I am grateful for many things though, healthy family and friends and furbabies, a friend bought me new memory on my computer and it has made all the difference! Snow and a few days off. Pain free.
I was not able to get cards or gifts out this year, but don't think I have forgotten you. Have a wonderful Holiday! XOXO

What's on My Mind

When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.

—Sarah Kendzior, A government shutdown, a social breakdown (via theyoungradical)

As one who has little money, and has worked hard my whole life, this strikes me where I live.
I am much better with the sinus infection (see post below), I eventually went to Urgent Care, it cost a small fortune for me, and I am hoping I can make it up, but thanks to Obama I  won't have to worry about it next time. Love your thoughts. XOXO

I have been away from my blog for a while, right after Thanksgiving I had a series of unfortunate things happen, first to avoid hitting a man walking on an icy dirt road, I went into a ditch, that was a first for me and I complained bitterly :-), then I got struck with a sinus infection that has been so painful I cannot remember having so much pain in my life, not having money to go to the doctor (my Obama Care has not kicked in yet), I have been treating it myself and now I am on the other side of it, pain level went from 15 to an 8.
One thing I can tell you I learned from this is that things can get worse. I don't mean that in a negative way, I mean that no matter what you are going through things can be worse and if you look at it that way there is so much to be grateful for! The pain taught me to be grateful when there was no pain even if my car is in a ditch :-). Being pain free is such a deep blessing that even my chronic back and shoulder pain does not even register as pain now, not in comparison with really bad  pain. Life looks new and I see so much to be happy about, I wanted to share this blessing with you. XOXO
