Hey you, Monica.

I think of you often and wonder how IT has been to you. Without words of woe I hope it has been kind to you...you never really say.

I think you are such a wonderful kind loving soul. You move through the forums, with such soft kind words of care and support for all.

I want you to know I think you are great and giving. I really do. I hope you believe that of yourself too...

It's Friday....Happy Day..squeeze.

Hi Oluwa,

I am doing well, how are you? I often think of you as well and whisper a prayer for you and your health. You, too, are such a great inspiration to all that when you are not here your absence causes such a void. i still think you should do a call in radio show or "Ask Oluwa" blog, hey maybe that could be a new forum :?:

Thanks for thinking of me and reaching out.

Oh, you are too funny and too kind...Pretti Monica

I do think of you often...to me, I feel you as a kind, old soul. Not literally old, but wise before your years. Easy, mellow through your words, through your support for everyone.....

I do hope life is all good for you despite your illness...and that your illness has taken a back seat...

Enjoy the night..hugs.

Hey Oluwa,

How's it going? I have often been referred to as being an "old soul" and I always accept it as a compliment so thanks. I have been working some extra hours this semester to try and dig us out of the hole with me being out of work for so long. I have been feeling pretty good but some days I feel it more than others, but I just press thru and know when to take it easy so I am grateful to GOD for my health right now. I have some doctor appts tomorrow, the routine nephrologist and rheumi, prayerfully all is well.

So enough about me, how are things going on your end? I continue to lift up your name in my prayers and will do so.

Hi you, Pretti..

October is the month for all of us traipsing to doctors appointments, it seems. I have a few myself. Eye, Rhuemba and Pear. Thursday, Friday and Monday respectively.

Me...in the forefront...just scratching. My skin in areas is beginning to feel like leather. Actually, dry from all the creams, itching....and rubbing. Finally recovered to my normal pains from weekend gardening. It use to take one day, now it is taking three to four.

My world is getting so small..scared dull, boring because of the pain that follows. Swimming was so nice this summer. I already long for those weightless, no strain swims...ah. I am planning to ride my bike for exercise next. Probably will start tomorrow evening. I may just ace wrap my knees for added protection, I have one that would just like to go for the ride instead of pedaling.

Here's to no news, good news at your appointments, at mine. In my prayers you are too...

Night, night, Monica.

Hi Oluwa,

Thanks for thinking about me. I have been doing well. I'm just working and trying to complete my Masters this semester but this STATS class is really kicking my butt. I remember in undergrad it was hard but at least I felt like I was making progress but I just don't have the snap that I used to and I can really feel it. I don't want to quit because this is all I need.

My mother in law has also been ill and has been in and out of the hospital, she is in ICU now with multiple organ failure. We are being prayerful and remaining hopeful.

I often peek in and read the post but sometimes don't have much to offer or just have time to read and see how everyone's doing.

How are things on your end?

02-04-2009, 04:16 PM
Hugssss Pink!

Good to see ya!

Sorry to read about your mother inlaw, will say a prayer for her comfort and health.

Glad to know you still pop in to read.

Hi Pretty in Pink....

I just wanted to say hi, as well. :D I miss reading your posts, but know you'll be back when things calm down in your life.

Sorry about your Mother-in-Law, I'll say a prayer too. It's got to be tough on your husband so I'll say one for him too.

While I'm at it.....I'll throw one in for your STATS class. :)

No need for a reply....

Take care of yourself.

There you are....Monica..

I wish your Mum-in-law well..prayers for her and all of you. Illnesses are hard on everyone.

And school too..your platter is over flowing. I long to go to school...soon I hope, soon. My head feels too full of cotton, no room to absorb anymore.

Airhead, Pinhead...that is me. Light and floating or too small to fit anything more...

Is this your last semester? You will do well...you have the spirit to excel, to do well and to be well.

Take a bit of you time, so you can start on a full tank....replenish. The Spoon Theory...and kick the STATS butt instead of the other way around...

Lovely to read you PIP and it is wonderful to know you are doing well....keep well.

Rastagirl and Oluwa,

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. Yes, things are kind of tough on my husband right now so do please lift him up as well.

I have been feeling really overhelmed at times these last couple of weeks. I remember when I could juggle at that I have now and breeze through but now, not so much. But I also remember the time when I couldn't do any of what I am doing now and that's what keeps me going.

This is my last semester and if I could takle this demon STATS, I will be victorious. Oluwa, I'm with you with the cotton brain, it's just not coming to me like it used to. I am currently seeking a tutor so this stuff can make sense to me, I mean the most simplistic terms they can nugget it to. That's how desperate I am.

I really do miss chatting with everyone on a regular basis but I often think of my cyber family and whisper a soft prayer that GOD meet any need each of you have at that time and I will continue to do so.

Gentle hugs to ya Pretti in Pink

You are never far from our thoughts and our prayers.

You have alot of inner strength and determination.

02-10-2009, 09:19 AM

I, we miss you too. Lifting all of you in prayer.

I too remember when I could juggle, spin the plates and do the hula hoop all at the same time.

I have confidence in you that you will victorious...you have the hunger, the will and a tudor. Viola..it will all click.

When my mind is pickled, in a fog...it is hard to compute sentences, extract their meaning. My comprehensive skills go out the window just in everyday life..like reading an email. LOL, me furthering my education. I daydream about returning..and it isn't off my list yet.

If able, take a bit of time for you. A little rest, deposits of energy will help it to become clearer...

Monica, I applaud you, admire you for accomplishing so much..hugs.

Thank you for your prayers...

Be well...keep well.

Hi PIP...

Wondering how goes life...

Your mom-in-law? How is she?

School...STATS..being victorious?

Sending you hugs....love...and in my prayers you and your's are...

Thinking of you...

PIP, just doing a little 'browsing' and read about your challenges. So much for you to handle. It's so hard to feel your health limitations when you have such important things going on in your life. How is your mom-in-law doing? And a Stats course?? Yikes.....that's a bear for everyone, I hear. You will get through it....you can see the light at the end of that tunnel now. Hugs and prayers to you, PIP. I don't 'visit' as much as I used to, but I think often so many of my old friends, like you, and appreciate how much you care of everyone.
