I'm feeling both anxious and excited. I have a possible job in San Francisco that might take me if everything works out well. I live in Indiana. It'll be such a big move. In a lot of ways. Scared to death. Lol.
I'd say, listen to the excited voice in your head! Change is always scary, that's a given. But if you're truly excited about the prospect, good luck!
Sounds exciting to me. I have been to San Francisco-great city when you've lived in Atlanta, which is quite different. Taxes will be higher and the people more liberal but you only live once! Follow your dreams!
Please pray for my Dad - he's got a bad back.
It's a muscle spasm.
Hope things improve for him. Is it a long-time ailment or something new?
Thank you, Anonymous!
I've been battling gremlins all through the week. But now they're nowhere in psyche. I wish everyone has a good weekend!!! I plan to have one too.
Thank you for the Gift Points, Anonymous Ninja Pranksters! *Smile*
God is the Author and Perfecter of Faith (Hebrews 12:2, Romans 8:29-30).

I felt a lack of faith lately due to my depression. So I went online and asked who gives Faith. It took me to a blog and I lifted the quote from it. All you have to do is to ask God to give you more Faith and He will.
I had a dream that was vivid and dramatic, and with people I used to know. I followed my dream to its end and then I wondered whether I should make this a new novel. That's what I'll attempt to do today. Wish me luck! My Muse might be back.
I've turned my dreams into stories before. I always write down my dreams as soon as I wake up because they tend to be more creative than my awake mind *Laugh*
I've used my dream sot inspire my writing as well. Congratulations if this is your muse coming back!
Thank you for fanning me, my fans! I've fanned you back!
It's hard to watch my Dad struggle with his jacket. His shoulder pain is bothering him. Does anyone else have joint pain and what do you do to manage it?
My doctor also prescribed arnica for inflammation, though not for joint inflammation. It may help. I hear CBD can help as well, though it didn't help me.
If a doctor can't find the problem, a cortisone injection can help.
Otherwise, regimen of 1500 mg of glucosamine daily and pick up some diclofenac (Voltarin), which is like Naproxen (Alleve) that can be topically applied as a gel.
Ice 15 minutes, followed by heat. Or, a nice soak in the tub.
Good Luck!

I speak from experience. Two rotator cuff surgeries. I'm fully repaired. He might just have a bone spur that can be shaved down, at the least.
I did have a doctor recommend glucosamine and chondroitin. That's for that reminder! I'd forgotten about several of the things doctors have suggested over the years. I should try some again because I'm not doing great at the moment. Thanks for all the tips! *Hug1**Smile**Hug2*
