Rain, Rain, Don't go away
Falling, Falling, keep coming down
Take, Oh Take, the sorrow and pain
Melt, Melt, carry it away.

I LOVE the rain. The sounds, the smells, the calming rhythm. It just seems to surround me and help cleanse away all the bad and energize with the new...

Now, it's time to open a window, turn on the light tunes, grab the hot cocoa, and read a book, all wrapped up in my favorite Superman throw! The Best Afternoon coming right up!

Love Always,

Collision Update!

Quick update. I was involved in a Head-On collsion on Jan 25th, which totalled my husband's Chevy 1500 Silverado. I injured my left elbow in the accident because I did what they call "Stiff Arm" the steering wheel to brace for impact..The night of the accident I was seen in the ER, and with my doctor 3 days later. Again with my doctor in March for the pain in the elbow. None of these times was an x-ray done and I was told each time, that it would take time to heal and do some exercises.

Anyways, for the last 9 months I have been dealing with pain and discomfort in the elbow. Granted, it is better than it was after the accident, but it just isn't getting better. I finally called and requested to be referred to a specialist and was x-rayed and attended Physical Therapy yesterday.

Today I found out that I had a tiny fracture in my left elbow from the head on collision. It only took 9 months! The Physical Therapist says that the joint has been and continues to be out of alignment. No wonder It never seemed to heal. Now, I have tendonitis and an appt for a MRI! When it rains it pours! But the sun always shines brightly after the rain, so I'm trying to think positive!

Pray for me!

I hit 25 followers!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! And welcome to Jamie. I now have 25 official followers. YAY!
Come on people, I need more. Recommend me to your friends!  PLEEASE!

So the last two weeks, I have been completely immersed in my Literature class. I'm taking class at National University, where they stick an entire semester class into FOUR WEEKS! Yeah, that's right.
I'm on Poetry overload right now. But I will say that where as before I was utterly terrified of poetry, I'm finding it not so scary. I've even found a few I like!

Here is one I liked, let me know what you think of it, and what you think it is about. (Without cheating and looking it up online!lol)

When You Are Old  by William Butler Yeats

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

What do you think?
