So sorry about
the pain you're experiencing, Sherrine. Not an easy thing to deal with.
God sends the neatest little messages at times, and the timing always seems perfect. Last Summer, it seemed our little gray cat had disappeared for good. She's never gone and doesn't miss a meal, so I wasn't too hopeful. Boy, did I miss her!
Then, later, I was in the garden and saw something move out of the corner of my eye. It was our kitty, rolling in catnip I had planted. She was almost delirious with "happy." So funny!
Yes, my day ended on a happy note.
This might be a dumb question, Sherrine, but does heat help your pain? I know you're in Florida, so it's not exactly the time of year for a heating pad, I'm sure. That seems to be one of the few things that really helps me.
I saw our first oriole return today, so I put out a dish of grape jelly. Love to watch those colorful birds! They also sing such pretty songs. And the babies eat like crazy, later in the Summer.
