Updating The Musical Eye

I've had two appointments with the retina specialist.
My eyes have healthy strength and the one good eye has good vision with glasses.

There are things in my eye and he mentions going in and doing another surgery to clean those out or just watching it and see if it gets worse or become bothersome to see.
As always I opt for the wait and see, after all, I just had a surgery on my eye earlier in the year.

So while there is quite a bit of floating things in my eye, much different from what was there before, I'll adjust. I can already feel my brain adjusting.
And I just have to remind myself not to bat at or try to catch the thing beside me. No. It's not a bug Colette, it's a floaty!
It's life.

Now to attend to this lawsuit coming up next week.

Thank you for praying for me. I really appreciate it. *HUGS*

Thank Thee For Thy Love So Pure And Free

December is shaping up to look quite busy and might be a tad overwhelming. I'm trying to drag my feet slowly and try not to accept too much on my plate, but when you have kids, life plots.

And I have or might have a possible court appearance if the other party doesn't settle. It's a car accident. They hit us so hard that if we weren't in our truck, we would have died. They were also in a truck.
The driver has settled, however I was shocked to learn that it's the passenger who is suing us. God help us. We already have not even enough to buy groceries weekly. Life eh. Life. Ahh I tell you, life.

But there will always be much to be thankful for.

I believe if sometimes I have the human support that I need, I'd respond better to the oncoming things, I find that these days, I tend to not respond too well. I'm worn down emotionally from having to keep strong through so much for so long.

Anyway, this song has been on my mind for a while. I haven't heard it in years and just so wanted to hear it again. I hope it blesses you!

End Game

When I watched The Infinity war, I have to tell you, I was quite upset at the ending, but I was glad that they actually surprised me. And it was an unsettling movie too because it made me think of the rapture.

Now I know some of y'all have no idea what the rapture is, but I say; just read you, some Revelations!

Peter's end was even more heartbreaking because I believe that is how people feel when they know they are dying and they aren't ready to leave.

So it's good to see that perhaps they will make me happy with a continuation of a resolution to evil. Yes you Thanos boy, you evil alright :)

So see the new trailer coming:
What do you think? Do you watch the Marvel movies?

Classic Thanksgiving In A Contented Way

I hope y'all had a lovely Thanksgiving with family or alone.
My kids and I enjoyed a quiet and relaxing time together. And as usual, they do enjoy my cooking and I am glad that they do.

Now the leftovers are even more delightful! And soon there will be soups from the bones!

How did y'all do?

I was flipping the channel and saw the little kids dancing with the stars and heard this song. I like it.

Clearly Filtered

Clearly Filtered started in 2011 with the belief that water shouldn’t contain harmful chemicals, toxic heavy metals or any other form of contamination. This philosophy has led to the development of one of the most advanced filtration technologies in the world. We are on a mission to provide people with the tools to take control of their water and live healthier lives. It’s a lot easier to remove contaminants from the water you drink than to remove disease once it has entered the body. That is why we are so passionate about filtration and clean water because we know how important it is for our health and well-being.
