4. What's something that when other people see it, reminds them of you? Explain. A dance I made up, called the Nesie dance.

Feeling extra thankful this year. Last Thanksgiving, I was in a Rehab Hospital, learning to walk again, after my heart attack, and triple bypass surgery. Could not be with my family, celebrating the day. This year, I am home, preparing to take my husband's parents out for lunch on Thanksgiving Day, then, over to my brother's family that evening to eat. So very thankful, for the precious gift of my family. A gift, that I gladly want to unwrap, again, and again. Thank You Lord.

Birthday Weekend

My birthday weekend continued today, since Eddie had to work yesterday on my birthday. He took me out to dinner, at our celebration restaurant, Golden Corral. Had a yummy dinner. then went to Target, and walked around for awhile looking. Bought some cute new Christmas lights. Then, we came home, and had some birthday cake, and ice cream. Even gave Coco a little bit of cake, and ice cream, she enjoyed celebrating with us. We will be celebrating Eddie in two weeks, December 5th. He will be joining me, he will be 52 then, lol, The birthday cake that Eddie, and Coco picked out for me, is very beautiful, my favorite colors, and flowers, roses.
They put a crown, and scepter on the cake, they said, I am their queen. How sweet. It also said, Happy Birthday Denise, love you, Eddie and Coco. Makes my heart melt.

Happy Birthday To Me

52 years ago today, around lunch time, I was born in Chicago, Illinois. I was born at home, not in the hospital. I thank the Lord, and of course, my parents for giving me life. I have truly been blessed in various ways, throughout my life. Eddie, and my fur baby Coco, really spoiled me this year. My birthday cake was truly meant for a queen, and my gifts were awesome. I will be sharing pictures later. Love, and blessings to all of you..

Toe Truck???

Anyone have a toe truck? I need one here in Chattanooga!! Had an appointment ,with my podiatrist this afternoon, to find out about my recent x-rays. Not the news I wanted to hear. My toe is still broken, and the break is worse. She said, I probably did more damage, when I walked in that walk Saturday. So, I have to continue to wear the beautiful little shoe. I go in two weeks for more x-rays, then back to my podiatrist on December 3rd, to see how my toe is doing by then. I tried to convince her to let me get rid of the shoe for my birthday tomorrow, she said no!! Oh well, that is ok. I will just improvise the happy birthday, shorty bear dance. Love you all.

I close my eyes, and imagine my life, if I had never had a stroke, heart attack, triple bypass surgery, or attempted suicide. Aww, how different things would be. No physical limitations, no constant doctor appointments, no daily pain. No huge emotional baggage to carry around. What a great life it would be!!. ..........................   Stop, wait just a minute!! Wow, what an imagination I have. Now, let's take a look at a thing called reality. If I had not walked through the fire, I would never have had the opportunity, to rise up from the ashes. No, I am not who I use to be, but, I remain, Whose I use to be, God's!! He restored me, and revived me, to a better place, than I could have ever imagined.
