Thursday’s Thoughts ~ Christmas In February…

Yes, that’s right. I’m going to post about Christmas, even though it’s February! There’s a reason for my madness though.

Dealing with a health issue (candida) for several months made it nearly impossible for me to sit anywhere for extended periods of time–especially in my computer chair! Not being able to sit kept me from being able to work with my photographs, which are located on the desktop computer. Oh, how I’ve missed being able to make video montages and photo books!

The good news is, I’ve been on the “Threelac” program for almost a month, and I’m doing so much better! I’m not completely healed, but I’m a whole lot better than I was. Finally, something seems to be working! I hope, in time, I will eventually be rid of “this curse”, or at least keep it under control!

For now, I am able to sit at the computer again, as long as I don’t stay too long!  I managed to sit there long enough to get a montage made, although it took me a couple of tries.  Let’s hear it for progress!!

Now, back to Christmas. All things considered, we had a good one. Ed and I didn’t participate in as many activities as we usually do, but Christmas came and went, anyway. We seemed to have spent more time in the doctor’s office than anyplace else!

The good thing was, Ed and I still have each other, and we were able to be surrounded by our family. That’s really all that matters. When this family gets together, good times usually follow, and this year was no exception.

I tried to capture the highlights of the season with my camera, and here they are…

  2. Glad your doing better and pray that you continue to heal. Merry Christmas! Thanks for shaing your pictures. Looks like a fun family holiday.

  3. Better late than never, right? 😉 Seriously though, I’m so glad that you’e doing so much better … continuing to pray for complete healing.

  4. You always make the cutest videos! Looks like fun family time, and I’m glad you’re feeling better.

  5. Glad you’re feeling better.
    I usually have a gathering shortly after Christmas. One year I wasn’t able to and instead invited the same group of friends to a barbeque in July, and called it Christmas In July. went back to Christmas in December but this year as one friend was leaving she commented I should have another Christmas in July since it was much warmer, I prefer my Christmases in December!

  6. You are so right about the joy family brings in the midst of challenges. Like you, Hubby was dealing with sudden onset of a health challenge, but family rallied around and Christmas was memorable. i am so excited that you are seeing some progress. Will keep on praying.
