Past Present and Future musings : my Big Nutty Spiritual life!
|And here we go again folks!|
|Dear reader's, hi and thanks for hanging in there with me ☺️!
Y'all know who you are!! It's been a tough climb for this Capricorn 🐐 mountain 🏔️ goat, but I never gave in or up.
We are here in our favorite time of the year 🍂 Fall to Winter ❄️! October right around the corner 😜 and I hope it cools down soon. It's been an extremely hot and dry summer in Mississippi. Folks who measure the rainfall are finding dust ( that's a real fact out here). We are making plans in a year or so to make a final move to Roanoke Virginia. More on that later as I work on this neglected Blog!
So family update, as some of you know it's been a struggle to get my sister the surgery she needed. First because the state neglected to let her know, she has been eligible for medical insurance through Medicare and Medicaid for the past year.
Then the problem was getting transportation from Singing River hospital, since their computer system was hacked last month. Because of our Humana local agent, we are finally in Good hands. They provide transportation to medical appointments through Uber! I wish we had called him last month and saved hours of fruitless effort and stress...
Tomorrow she gets her left eye done and I pray she will be able to see better soon. It's taken longer than the Doctor thought for this to happen and has made driving harder on her.
I have to get up at 5 am so will wrap up shortly.
The misunderstanding I have had was worked out. I found out who was lying and who really loves me. Be careful who you trust.
I just finished my proof reading for Blogging Bliss newsletter, before starting this. Looks good and those of us who know Sunny, will enjoy her feature on Journaling!
In time will be sharing different helpful links from helping animals and others with just a free click on the Greater good site. You can also go to the shelter challenge to vote every day for your local animal shelter. I'm a wealth of information on the spiritual and things like Tarot, astrology and am plugged in to sources of helpful knowledge! Pay it forward 😉.
It's been hard to be myself this past year, dealing with pain that up until a couple of months ago, was untreated.
Now that I'm off the floor ( literally - it was that bad, I would try to make my body numb to have a break from it.)
So heading to Farmville on my phone and maybe a game of solitaire on Mistplay. Almost have enough points to get my eBay gift card and can order my Estee lauder face travel set! Happy camper 😁.
So hugs and be good to each other 🤗
|Dear reader's, my last post was really upbeat! I was really looking forward to being a part of the celebration 🎆🎉.
Then life took another turn, it was a very stressful time and I could only turn to prayers and actions 🙏.
I spent 3 weeks calling every morning to get my sister a ride to her upcoming cataract surgery.
The only local transportation was the hospital Van. The problem was that the hospitals computer systems were hacked by ransomware hackers. They have no heart for anyone but themselves.
So instead of being able to just schedule a ride, the transport people have to work off a daily paper for the next day.
Thus I kept calling to see if they were back online ( it's been a month and not yet).
The week before the first surgery, on Wed she has a pre op appointment. We found out if we didn't cancel in 48 hours, they'd charge her $500.
Monday was the surgery day, and Thursday I told them we were going to cancel. By a miracle they were able to confirm us that ride.
You see we are so rural that we couldn't get a taxi ( it would have been super expensive anyway)
So this week will be calling again and ( please pray for us) trying to get a ride.
Our family in Oregon have been in touch, too far to help but concerned.
So I missed the whole WDC anniversary and it looked like so much fun. I'm at least writing this as I know some folks here do care. I'm glad everyone had a good time and looking forward to next year's party 🎉🥳!
I was deathly ill Fri night, and didn't light 🕯️ my Shabbos candle or find the prayers for Rosh Hashanah ( Jewish new Year)
It's a time to look back on the year and see what we can do better this year. Or if we hurt someone to apologize and make amends.
I didn't know it could be a time when, someone wronged you and you can offer forgiveness.
There were but I decided not to.
One because I didn't feel it.
Two because I unfriended them and thought " if it matters to them they will reach out"
They didn't and I'm leaving it in God's hands.
I have a lot on my mind and hope to find my writing voice again.
Until next time ( hopefully not so long!)
Best regards to all
|Wow 23 years ago WDC was launched! I'm so glad Story Mistress and Master acted on their inspirations !!!
So many friendships have also been launched over the years! A real cause for celebration indeed 😁! This has been an important hub for writers like myself ( even if I have been gone and back. I see the last post was July 31!)
I'm very tired this afternoon, finally after over 3 months of the heat index going from 108 to 114 we are getting a break from all that heat. Even some rain 🌧️ thankfully.
I learned Jimmy Buffett passed away yesterday, very sad news. His five o clock somewhere will live on in his happy music 🎶.
I've been studying things like a Maamar, which teaches about the Kabbalah and the Jewish way of looking at the soul and the upper realms.
Maybe what I'm learning will make it's way into poems or something in time. Something good to share with others!
I've still been posting in Weekly goals and trying to stay connected here. Everything else has come to a standstill the past month.
The medical transport people were hacked, as was one of the health care systems out here.
I have the dates for my sister's eye surgeries, still working on getting transportation. By Monday will know if the system is back online. If not there are a couple of others who hopefully will be able to do it.
I got to proof the Blogging Bliss newsletter and getting my butt in gear ⚙️ to get back on the writing horse! Until next time
Sending hugs and blessings to all my peeps 🤗, trying to get back to y'all!
|WOW this has been a great weekend into Monday 😁!
( Except for not having a good painless day today big 😩)
In spite of it got a lot of writing done 👍✅.
I even got a thank you note for helping out with last minute proof reading! Found the one thing that was undone on Blogging Bliss newsletter. I spent part of the morning reading it ( fantastic issue!)
And met some amazing people through their blogs. Did a bunch of reviews for them, in hopes others will enjoy there offerings also.
There are a lot of brave souls to share with us, what is going on. And to be honest and shine brightly. We all need encouragement.
So if you like check it out
Will be back to share the link!
Hoping did it right!
|Hi y'all 👋🤠
Another episode of Bloggers paradise!!
I don't know where the planets are ( probably in Mercury or another of communication and community!)
Was just waking up, having coffee and almost out of ciggies.
Got an email to proof read Blogging Bliss WDC newsletter and some other things.
I've been so busy with the find a good Dr, like a needle in a haystack, that I forget about a lot.
And we had a miscommunication, but it needed to be done stat!
So I did and was happy to see I'm in good company with QP Doll!
Nice to see our names as Proofreaders.
It's going to be a kickass August issue and hopefully you will check it out! Has great bloggers and awesome suggestions for showing your support for our talented writers.
I am working on the Autism Rocks blog edit and posted a pic and couple of other places!
Have fun finding em!
Have created ( gasp) a Google doc for it. Did more writing today than can't remember!
Did couple of public reviews and now I'm pretty tired!
I'm also learning a Maamar, a Jewish discourse on stress and making a living. It's got Kabbalah concepts and I will be tested on it next month. If I pass will get a stipend for it! Just getting a good grade would be enough for me, yet can use any help also!
My Jnet partner and friend is not able to commit but I can give it my all, if they don't have anyone else to study with me!
Was using my tablet today.
That's all for now!!!
|Hi y'all again 👋, I'm pretty tired at the moment. My eyes have been bothering me lately. I had cataract surgery a few years ago. Have been blowing off taking care of so much stuff. Dealing with my spine has sucked up so much time and energy.
Also my step sister has been my focus with her finally getting the help she needs to see.
So much has changed since ugly COVID showed up.
It slowed down needed service's for so many people. In healthcare and government, the list goes on.
The only thing that has helped me cope with life is the spiritual and in the past a good therapist!
Of course writing when I could get my heart into it.
Hoping to get more writing done and review.
Had a partly bummer day and doing the best I can!
Some situations we didn't create or can control ( including people)
We can only control our self.
|Hi again folks! It's definitely different writing on a tablet. Not sure if I like it yet. Keyboard is better that's a plus LoL! I haven't been feeling great so not getting a lot of writing done. Considering have been making a good dent in my goals. I did get started on Autism Rocks so should give myself more credit ( if not cash!) Couldn't resist my pun! I got a Merit badge for mental health this week. It was a blessing to me, after this year and half of fighting the good fight, for compassionate competent health care. It should be a right not a privilege... A much weaker person might have given up or lost their sanity. The Marx brothers said there is no sanity clause, they got that right! Tomorrow going to Walmart for food and kitty food. We switched to Rachel Ray for crunches and Fancy Feast for wet . Friskies has very little nutrition. I appreciate your feedback and friendship here. I checked in with the Depression, anxiety etc group here, it's another blessing to be connected to others who get it and are real enough to share. So I'm tired but wanted to touch base. It's tough trying to find my focus again with writing. It used to come very easy. So I thank you for being here and letting me into your world! Have a super blessed week and be safe out there!
|Well Hi 👋 again y'all! Kitties 🐈 are waiting for dinner 🍽️, and I've been figuring out what to do towards my writing goals. I have a tablet and learning to use it! For now am going to use my phone to work on Autism Rocks. I need to take the puzzle 🧩 pieces and get them in a coherent form, where the article was supposed to be!
It's easiest to put word press back on my phone to do that. Later can use chrome book to edit and add my recollections.
I also need to get back to review Land! Thanks for the Fanning of it! I really appreciate it. It inspirations me to a good place to get working! Big thunder storm's coming so gotta go. Bye for now!
|Hello y'all my dear readers and peeps 😀💗.
As we head towards the mid July check point, I've been very blessed!
This week I saw my new pain management Dr. He was compassionate as mine was in Oregon. He wasn't there to judge me but to heal me best he could.
He's competent and has helped many over the years.
I received treatment and by the afternoon felt beyond better than I had for over a year.
I'm thankful to be able to help my sister with the housework more.
To feel well enough to put more effort and energy into my writing projects. And study more Torah, Zohar/ Kabbalah Etc! Reading a book on Rosh Hashanah ( Jewish New year 🎊🕛) It's couple of months away but there is a lot to be learned of it.
It's also a time of reflection 🪞 and giving thought to what transpired over the past year.
We are to reach out to those who we may have hurt or disrespected Etc. And try to ask for forgiveness.
This year the people whom did it to me, are out of my life. I doubt they will reach out to me with an olive 🫒 branch. Which is truly sad...
Instead I look forward and appreciate the folks who are family and friends 😊😁.
I didn't create the ones who let me down or have control over their actions.
The ones who stuck it out with me, either in person or virtual have chosen to be real and supportive!
They say if you have one real friend you are very lucky. I have many and feel very blessed!!!
This blog is my go to, first 🥇 and where I will continue to be.
Hugs and thanks 😊👍
Have a very awesome weekend 😀!!!
|This will be short. My pain is bad but need to keep going. Just posted in weekly goals. WordPress has changed it's format and I'm working on bringing autism Rocks to here.
Please bear with me!
This is a post I copied off it.
Wow it’s been nutz the past couple of years so much has changed both good and not. Major progress has been made working so hard with Jake. So many are blown away by him after not seeing him for awhile. He still has major meltdowns,not quite as many . I can recall many times having to pick him up(he was anywhere from 40 to 80 lbs) He would be kicking and screaming over maybe not getting a toy(his room has been filled with so much!) or just not having executive functions working in his brain. A sort of short circuit in the brains behaviors. It took us so much time to get some kind of handle on this all. Over the past 2 or so years professionals have called Us the experts. Have spent hours
That's all I could copy. I get up at 5 am and it's almost 10 pm!
It's a work and labor of love. He's turning 13 next week and was so happy to speak on the phone with him 😺!!!! Sounds so grown up!
Sent him a book as he loves reading.
Thanks for your angel 😇 hugs and kisses. It really does matter!
Speak soon 😁🔜
