Many have gotten to know me through my other blog, “The News of the Day”.
However, since we’ve started a new adventure, I thought it would be helpful for me (and maybe others) if I blogged about it.
I am 67, soon to be 68 on Christmas. I am married, have children, grand children, horses, 2 labrador retrievers and a cat named Spot.
My career has been in hospitals. As an RN I have worked at bedside nursing in every specialty except neuro. I spent the last 18 years of my life in administration. I retired at 50. I worked hard, running my home, raising my child and working but loved every minute.
The last 6 years of my life have been devoted to my mom and my dad. I cared for them both in my home from which they have both traveled on to our Yeshua Mashiach. Jesus Christ . I miss them so much…
I believe that everything I have learned til that time six years ago was just for this time in my life. My wonderful parents deserved so much and I am so thankful for them. I pray I did what was right and loving for them. I owe them so much.
Now, we have entered a new time, a new environment, a new milieu, you could say.
Our healthcare system is in jeopardy. And with it, as a soon to be Medicare recipient, so is my health and my husband’s health in jeopardy. Billions of dollars have been taken from Medicare and moved into the Affordable Care Act’s operating funds. Our president said we elderly must give up the operations we need and just ‘take the pill’. I suspect it may be cyanide? Or maybe Percocet? Who knows. He never says what he means.
So! To that end, we are taking total charge of our health and our lives.
Our health depends on:
- the food we put in our bodies
- the amount of movement we do with our bodies
- the use and exercise of our brains
- monitoring any systems that are giving us problems
- an overall positive and joyful attitude in our lives which originates from the Holy Spirit’s fruit in us
That about says it!
That’s what this blog is about.
I hope you find it interesting and check it out once or twice.
That’s not me working out.
