GOOD MORNING MONDAYS #47

Hi there everyone and welcome back to another Good Morning Mondays.

Another week down and another week towards freedom from plaster for me. Sorry I will try and not dwell on it too much but for anyone who has had plaster or anything similar will know how annoying it  can be and our weather is definitely starting to warm up now with summer on the way.

At least I can remove mine and scratch the itchy spots and wash my leg which is such a blessing. I am hoping at the next surgeons visit next month I will be getting a knee and ankle brace instead of the plaster, let’s keep praying – please.

I have had a busy week, you would have thought that being laid up meant that I was bored, well there are definitely a lot of times during the day that I am sick of sitting and would appreciate a lovely stroll around the farm, but I have been blessed by visits from family and friends.

I have a lovely lady who comes and cleans once a week which is wonderful, although she doesn’t have time enough to do everything, the stuff she does really helps and makes me feel so much happier.

On Wednesday our children went to the local Holiday Bible Adventure and had a wonderful time learning about God. They have been so busy looking after me and doing their chores and school work that it was a good time for them to have a break and do something different.  Whilst they were gone I had some friends come and sit with me and we chatted and knitted and crafted and had a lovely time.

On Thursday we caught up with our Son-in-law and daughter and family for some special time together and lots of grandparent hugs with the children.

Friday our Uncle and Aunt from Portland came for a visit and brought us some lovely fish for tea. They are such dear people and we really enjoy their company.

It is so wonderful to have a wheelchair available to us so that I can get out and about and also get to church. I am particularly enjoying the worship side of things and last weeks sermon on prayer was a wonderful reminder of how important it really is.

Our church family has made sure that our freezer is full of food each week and other lovely friends have been contributing as well. I am overwhelmed by everyone’s help and feel so blessed and loved.

I have been working on my jigsaw puzzle and I am slowly getting there, now I probably only have 2,950 pieces to place. I only have about an hour of being able to sit in the chair and concentrate on one thing at a time, so when I am good I blog and puzzle. I hope to get onto some homemade Christmas gifts soon, things that I can do whilst sitting and I have had some ideas floating around my gray matter for a while now.

Okay, enough already, onto our link up.

Our top three posts this week were…

I am not yet able to read too many posts but I ask that you keep linking up because I will get back to it soon. Thank you so much for your prayers and support for me and Good Morning Mondays.

Numbers 6:24-26 “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.”

Blessings to you all my friends. xxxx
