A Fun Surprise

I had to share with you all the neatest thing that came from the UPS man today via my friend Kim….

Okay, let me backtrack here a bit. I am required to swallow several supplements daily to keep me going and help heal my central nervous system. Unfortunately, my swallow muscles aren’t quite right and so I have to crush up everything I take and stir into applesauce just to get it down. Otherwise, I just can’t do it.

So, for years I’ve taken a heavy ice cream scooper and an old rag, beaten the pills into a fine dust before stirring into my applesauce. I know I look as stupid as it sounds…πŸ˜‚

Well, not anymore folks! Kim lovingly sent to me an Ezy Crush Pill Crusher from Amazon. I’m literally so excited right now because taking my supplements will be so much easier and I won’t conveniently forget anymore due to the hassle.

Whoo Hooooo!! Looky here folks, I’m moving up in the world. No more waking the hubby and neighbors because I have to beat up pills!! I’m so thrilled and excited to get this and humbled too. She also generously sent a yummy flavored pre-biotic powder to help aid in digestion. I’m overwhelmed by such love!😍

God knows how bummed I’ve been lately but He continues to send loving kisses from friends like Kim because He knows, cares, and uses people to lift us up and urge us forward. We’re not ever alone in any of our troubles. In response to others who haven’t been nice, I find myself wanting to pop my turtle’s head back into my shell for protection but that’s not what God wants! He knows we need each other, community, and fellowship, and that’s why we are to reach out, to share, to pray and to never ever give up hope!

Much love,

  1. That is cool! I have to take a bunch of vitamins too since I’m nutrient deficient because of Celiac. I can’t stand taking some of the big ones, so I completely understand! What a great friend and blessing from God. God bless!

      2. Thank you. Sometimes I think the spirits is the hardest to bring up. Yes, its definitely hard, especially having children, but they’re my motivation to keep moving even though my body would rather stay in bed.

  2. Yay! That so nice of your friend Kim. Now the neighbors can remove the ear plugs lol. I agree, we do need each other, Viv. The body cannot function with only the hand or feet. Every part is necessary. Love you πŸ€—

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ LOL…..my poor neighbors. And hubby. I think subconsciously I rather enjoyed beating pills to death but now I must move forward.πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

      We really do sweet friend. I want to let you know how much your prayer helped me yesterday….I cried while reading because it meant so much that you took the time to pray and write it out. I do want to share it here on my blog if that’s okay with you. It was so uplifting to me that I’m postive it will also bring hope to others. Love you lots Dee. My sweet Dee. πŸ˜™πŸ’–

      1. Giggles! Now you must move ahead 😭

        By all means sweet Viv, go ahead if the Lord gives you the okay. To Him be all the glory for the utterance He gives us each day. When I saw the prayer request, I knew I could sit and pray, but I wanted to include you in the prayer since there is power in agreement. I give God honor that you were blessed, and even shed a tear to wash away the sorrow.

        I sincerely love you. Words are insufficient πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

      3. For some reason, I believe this lesson of how important the body is is being reverberated to us over the last couple of days, maybe weeks even. We need each other! Like seriously need each other!

        May I sit with you and cry some healing tears? πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

      4. I was just thinking the same thoughts as I read my Bible today. I have had very little support from my church but God revealed this here on WordPress, the people here…..they’re my church! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„

        Awwwww, okay yes. I haven’t cried much lately for the numbness so cry for us both sweetie. It’ll do us good. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

      5. Oh sweet girl. Thank you for your compassion, understanding and empathy. It means so much. I hope you’re okay after the tears. Big hugs! My hubby just told me all his problems…instead of getting upset and worried I feel peace. Such an un explainable peace which is a God thing for sure! He is holding us Dee. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–
