This Time of Year

I should have mentioned last week that my blog was named one of the top leukemia sites by the Online X-ray Technicians Schools. I’m glad they like the blog and I am happy too that you continue to read it.
I’ve been feeling pretty well recently considering everything. My stomach continues to do better as I restrict beef and pork. I still get deep boring pains in my stomach that sometimes keep me awake at night, and I still have to take all my stomach medicine. However, overall, my stomach is improved.The cold weather is wreaking havoc on my arm. The worst of it is that it makes holding our granddaughter a challenge at times. However, I have a very high pain tolerance and my arm could all but fall off before I stop holding that child!! Actually, I try to be careful and mindful of my arm even when holding her.
Christmas time is fast approaching and I hope that we all remember that Christmas is all about Christ. It’s easy to get wrapped up in all the Christmas parties, shopping, and family gatherings. However, our nation has gotten lost in the commercialization of Christmas and it’s easy for us to get wrapped up in it too. I pray we take time to reconnect with our Creator and Savior during this very busy and often demanding time. A little humility and reassessment of our spiritual status can go a long way in reestablishing who we are and whose we are, especially during this time of year.
