My faithful companion Patches turned eleven today. But after what happened last Thursday, it’s a miracle he’s alive. Please join me over at Family and Faith Matters to find out why I believe in miracles. I’m sad to report that on December 31, 2014 the Family and Faith Matters blog will be closing up shop. […]
Hi Folks! Indy here.
Mum banished me to the dog house for sneaking a post onto her blog. Okay, so I don’t actually have a dog house. I lived the first year of my life in a crate, and now I snuggle up on the sofa under this blanket Mum knit. Once in a while, Pop lets me sleep with my mum as long as I stay on her side.
Anyway, after scrambling and hiding under the sofa until Mum coaxed me out in her sweeter-than-molasses voice, I balanced on my hind legs, begging Mum to let me use her laptop again. She agreed…as long as I do my posts while she’s asleep. I overhead heard Mum telling Pop she was thrilled that I brought in so many awesome comments. Thanks folks, you saved my hide!
“Stress should be a powerful driving force, not an obstacle.”
I had more than one powerful force driving my stress this past week. But I coped and I was able to turn it around by helping a special teenager in my life.
Monday, I worked a sixteen-hour day. A few bills got paid.
Tuesday, I woke up with a sore throat. All week, I crunched and chewed Vitamin C and drank gallons of water laced with Oil of Oregano. The oily solution soothed my throat, but it tasted worse than swallowing battery acid. 🙂
When I receive an award I perform a happy dance.
This past week I was awarded, not one, but three blog awards.
First, I was honored with the “Inspiring Blog Award” and the “One Lovely Blog Award” courtesy of Stephanie Nickels. She is an editor at Christian Editing Services. Thanks, Stephanie!
