Fuzzy Chicks and Red Roses

Our roses are blooming like crazy!


 And fuzzy chicks are trying to make things more fun in the lanai.


It's hard to imagine 'fun' right now because I've managed to make myself really sick with the stress and strain. I have some kind of terrible cold, headache, nausea...the works.

So our house is quiet and the curtains are pulled and we are taking turns napping.

Thank you all for your prayers. I'm sure we'll see sunnier...and funnier days soon!

I’m joining Mosaic Monday HERE.

Dear Diane,
I am so sorry that you are feeling under the weather, I so appreciate that you created some pretty mosaics for us to enjoy today despite all that you are going through.
Hoping that your lovely husband starts piling on the pounds and gets a favourable diagnosis very soon.
Happy Mosaic Monday.

Dear Sis, please take care of yourself. The stress wears down your immune system and so you have to be extra kind to yourself. Big hugs and prayers continue.

Diane, We are all praying for your husband...so please try not to stress. The power of prayer is on your side. It is easy to say these things...even with the greatest of faith when we love someone we just will worry . I always say that I inherited my mother's big old worry gene...:):) I just want you to relax some. Blessings to you my friend, xoxo, Susie

I am so sorry you are not feeling well, Diane! I hope you feel better soon. The best medicine is sleep and rest, so you are doing the right things. Your roses and chicks are both wonderful. I look forward to seeing roses grow again here, and before we know it it will be Easter! xoxo

NanaDiana said...

Beautiful pictures. I guess the best thing I can tell you (after being in "hour shoes" with my hubby) is to try to stay in the moment. Don't worry about what tomorrow is going to bring and try not to stress out about it. It will drive you crazy and make YOU sick, too. God bless you- I know it isn't easy. Love & Prayers- Diana

ps. WHERE did you find those cute little chicks!!!!!?????!!!!

Rest, Diane, is so important when you're feeling stressed and unwell. Golly, I think that I slept the winter away. Rest and take good care of yourselves. Praying for good health to return soon. Blessings to you...

Hi Diane,

Sorry to hear your under the weather, but hope you're feeling better! Plenty of hot liquids, peace and quiet and rest should do the trick. Your cutie patootie chicks and pretty roses certainly made me smile.

Prayers being sent your way.

Take care, sweet friend.

Hugs,

Oh I hope you and your hubby feel better soon. So many crazy viruses and other junk going around. I will be praying you both feel better very soon. Chicks will make you smile always. Hugs

What cute little chicks, Diane! It brings back a fun memory of me collecting them to display. Sending you & your hubby good wishes!

Inger said...

I'm keeping both you and your husband in my thoughts.And I hope you will feel better soon. The roses are lovely, gorgeous, and I hope they cheer you some.

Cherdecor said...

I am so sorry, Diane, but a lot of people are sick right now. On the news tonight they said that over a thousand people have been hospitalized because of the flu. Try your best to stay away from people. Take comfort in that the sick people of Ohio are far away from you.

I don't know how you are doing as well as you are. This is taking so long to get a diagnosis. We continue to pray.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

Those roses are joyous, so beautiful to see their sweet happy faces! And so sorry to hear of your illness, oh my, it does seem like life piles on at times! Praying for you both that better days are ahead! Hugs!
