It's December!

Hello Friends! 




I looked up today to breathe and discovered it was December.  

My family and I are in a much better place than we were in November.  My mom is steadily improving and within a few days she'll be moving from the hospital to a rehab where she'll have physical and occupational therapy.  From there she'll come home! We feel so blessed.  Oh how far she's come from the ICU unit at the hospital. She's still got a long way to go, but she is getting there.  We've learned to appreciate the little things.  We've learned the power of prayer.  We've learned that life is a beautiful precious gift <3

I feel like I've emerged from a dark room that I've been stuck in for 3 weeks.  I've come out of the room and all of a sudden it's Christmas time! It snowed! Christmas may be a little different for us this year, but that's OK.  Some things may have to be done on a smaller scale. I might not have time to decorate like I usually do, and I may have to stop at the bakery and pick up a dessert instead of baking one, and my Christmas cards might be a little late...but it's all OK. 

The important things will be there.  Family, friends, good food (yes that's important : ) a happy 12 year old boy, and my Christmas tree, which I managed to put up and decorate last weekend. 

This morning I went out early to catch up on some Christmas shopping and I actually found myself humming to a Christmas song.  I haven't hummed or even listened to any Christmas music in a while.  It felt good to feel happy again.  I treated myself to a cinnamon roll to celebrate the feeling.  Oh yes, things are definitely looking up!  : ) 




























This is my mom's Christmas tree in her hospital room.  It was given to her by a friend and she loves it.  (it's boxwood branches, so pretty!).  She got some beautiful flowers and poinsettias also, but gave them to nurses who took such good care of her.  She's bringing her tree with her to the rehab.  I hope she won't be there for long.  We are all hoping she'll be home for Christmas! 

I hope you are all doing well.  I am happy to be back here and look forward to catching up with all of you!  Have a wonderful day!  XOXO

  3. Mulch should be your best friend when it comes to organic gardening. You need mulch to protect your plants and soil for when there is runoff after a rain storm or after using an irrigation system. The water runs off the land and it will erode and deplete any unprotected soil.

  4. Stress can be a vicious cycle so find small ways of breaking it up to avoid it breaking you down! Most of us have stress in our lives from one source or another and scheduling some fun or relaxation around it will stop it from taking over. If there is no way to completely avoid stress we can at least make it intermittent!

  5. If you have someone in your life who always leaves you feeling stressed out and run down, the best way to deal with the problem is either to distance yourself as much as possible from the relationship, or to cut ties all together. This can be incredibly difficult if the person is a friend or family member. However, in the long run it will be better for your overall health and well-being to reduce the stress associated with that person as much as possible.
