Being grateful before griping

thumbs up

I can see.  Surgery was successful.  Daughter-in-law, sister, and husband have kindly shown me eye drops don’t hurt!  Doctor and nurses are wonderfully sweet, comforting and knowledgeable.  granddaughter came and left cake while I was gone.  Carl and Vicky came.  I have discovered I can still use this I-Pad.  I gave myself a birthday gift which no one else could give me; I lost 14 pounds.

Jesus soaked my soul with glory as I listened to “This Blood” by Rachel Chapman.  That line about his “liquid glory flowing down” is so gloriously true!

All that and I still have gripes.  Can’t do without my glasses because I have to have them for seeing with right eye.  Terrible now for left eye.  I can’t bear to think of dropping anything in my own eye even if it eye drops.  The Windows 10 is beserk on my computer   I guess that’s the problem because the trouble started after that update.    I’ll have to dump an awfully lot of blogs.  Too much eye strain do stay with this screen very long.  My choices of what to do are being cut down to house work – or taking a nap.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    The good news is you can see. The not so good new is you may not like everything you look at. 😀 I pray your transition into your new vision goes smoothly, Oneta.

    In many ways, possibilities exist for new vision in the natural and in the spiritual. Blessings and love.

      Thanks, Judy. I tried, but one of my New Years Resolutions is still working in January. I am forcing myself to get to bed by 12:00 and set the alarm for 8:00. It is amazing how much an eight hour sleep cuts down on one’s ability to take a nap! However, house work has not improved significantly. 😀
