Ain't What I Used To Be

I am beginning to see more and more I ain't what I used to be! I remember the day I worked 50 hours  a week, attended all my kids ball games, took Karate, cooked  and cleaned, and still had energy! It's not that way any more. My health has caught up with me! Alice and I just went and got several bags of groceries and it was all I could do to help get them in the house and put them away.  I hate what lupus has done to my body!  Well things could be a lot worse. I can still take care of business. I'm just a a lot slower! lol

Last night we sat on the porch and watched the neighborhood fireworks. There  was a cool breeze which was nice since the high of the day was over 100 degrees. A very pleasant  and enjoyable time with Alice.

I have got so much I need to do today. Just one step at a time. That Is all anyone can do!

My thankful thought of the day, my home, my family, and my friends!

Might not be what you used to be but you're still making movement. Now that is praiseworthy indeed. Blessings to you.

I used to play that fish game with my grandson and then he gave it up and went to bigger and more complicated games.
Gosh I wish I had seen that 20/20 on Heaven. Dang.
