Stopping To Smell The Roses




"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses." A.  Karr

I only now thought that this post is so strange, beautiful flowers in the first part, then the ugliness of my fall in the second! Well, these are some of the beautiful flowers I have gotten since my fall. And of course the kitties just love to smell them! This weekend has been better! I was finally able to dress myself for the first time, and I also got my stitches removed! The last picture is me today. And these are the scratches the hard cement made on my glasses when they hit the ground. I have not done anything abut it yet, they serve as a cautionary reminder to watch where I am going and be careful!


“If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet.”
Psalm 25

I'm happy to have your post--it means you are mending! For a minute, I thought that photo of you showed a "Bam Bam" hairstyle before I realized it was a plant!!

Best,
Bonnie

Beautiful flowers... I'm sure that made you feel better. There's just nothing that can make one smile more than pretty flowers can...

You look MUCH better in that last photo.. Glad you are feeling some better. Do you use a walker or cane when you walk? Maybe you should --if you don't. That would give you more support in trying to get around.

What did the dentist say about your teeth?

Hugs and Prayers,
Betsy

Look at all that blooming love surrounding you. A girl would just have to smile with all this beauty. You are looking a lot better. Did I miss the info? Did you have to have oral surgery? How did the teeth turn out?
