Laughter And Memories

Laughter

I remember things that make

Me laugh

Seeing in my minds eye

Climbing the big old maple tree

As a small girl

To the top as the wind blows

Laughing as I hold on

To the branch as it goes to and fro

In the wind

Seeing my little sister dress up as

She gets ready to show her pet goat

She won first place by the way

She was laughing as her picture

was taken and so was I

Nanny was so much bigger than her

In our later years the laughter

grows stronger as we giggle

about things past and the giggles

grow in to belly laughs which

grow into happy tears and hugs

Laughter is the best memory of all

Up Again

It’s 3:47 A.M. and I’ve been up for a while. It’s not unusual for me to be woken up by pain. It usually happens every night. I have to get up and take more pain medication. My legs are on fire. I have degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, gouty arthritis, osteoarthritis. I could go on and on, but I won’t.  I am not in the habit of complaining about my pain, it is what it is. I deal with it the best I can.

What I was going to tell you is that there are several ways that you can learn to live with chronic pain. For me, it was finding something to do that took my mind off of the pain, to at least lessen the pain so that I could function. Crochet was that something for me. It helps me to deal with the overwhelming pain that I feel. Sometimes my house smells of Icy Hot so much that it is overwhelming for a while.  I was lucky enough to find a pair of compression gloves that help my fingers and wrists. I am able to type better now and there is less pain.  I have my lift chair and my extra large heating pad hooked up and oh boy the relief that I get for a while feels so good. I meant to tell you that I now have 14 blankets made for my comfort bags. I’ll take a photo of them soon and post it. After I get done here, I will go to my chair and start on number 15. I bought 30 bags and if I can get 30 blankets done then that would be fantastic. I would like to get them done by November 1st if I can, so whatever the amount of blankets I can manage will have to do. All I need are the stuffed animals. I have a feeling that I need not worry. I will  manage to get what I need.

My medication is starting to work, so I think rather than crochet, I will go back to my bed and get some more sleep. It was nice talking to you all. I hope to see you soon.
