"Praise the Lord, O my soul;"

I am looking at my desk, with memories of "treasures" there. I love the "Willow Tree" angels, and have collected over a dozen in the past few years. We also have the Nativity set of Willow Tree. I have told about the friend of Daddy's in Belgium who painted the "Ardene Forest", which hangs in our living room. I have a plaster model of a scene in "relief" that Daddy did at some time, painted green, showing a house setting in the Ardene woods. It is very heavy, and can hang on the wall or set on a shelf. Another memory of 60 years ago! I have a set of bronze/gold lions head book ends, a gift from Mama and Daddy one Christmas. They especially give wonderful memories. When John and I travel I usually find a Willow Tree angel. I have a small wooden box that holds says " Salzburg" on the bottom and is painted with tulips on the top. I remember the day I went shopping all by myself in Salzburg and felt so adventurous.

I am feeling more like eating but not normally, just barely tolerating food. I am having a time with swollen feet and ankles, and wonder if it is the Aleve? I will leave it off tonight and see if there is any difference...Every day is a challenge. I sew awhile and sleep a while. I read some and do X stitch...I hate to just sit.

"..all my inmost being, praise His holy Name. Praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits..." Psalm 103:1-2

    Just reminding you that you've been prayed for at least three or four times (or more) today in our household. Hang in there, Sweet Sister.
    We love you.
