I Didn’t See It Coming

This is the beginning of busy. The week before last  at the nursing home,  I hosted a TN/AL Divided House Party. Last week was the Halloween Party. This week is Halloween and I am preparing for our Women of Covenant weekend. I had to work both Saturday and Sunday and today the body and mind shut down. My BP was 188/110 and the nurses insisted that I go to the ER. I was having Shortness of Breath which felt like anxiety except I was having chest, shoulder and arm discomfort. I was there from 10:30-5:00. The EKG, chest X-ray, and blood work were all good. Blood pressure finally came down after 4 hours of resting and nitrate? I think they said.

On the drive to work this morning, I remembered the scripture my mama shared with me when the kids were young and we were driving teenagers all over Georgia. God promises, “As thy days so shall thy strength be.” Deut. 33:25 Meaning that He will provide the strength needed for each day.

Connor had a birthday party- 7 years old! We decorated cookies, painted rocks and pumpkins two weekends in a row and I’m getting ready for my MK Holiday Open House.  As I write this, I am
Understanding why the meltdown. Mania spirals.
I didn’t see it coming this time.

Hugs to you. Prayers Appreciated



  1. Bonnie, You are in my prayers. I have asked for prayers today for my Teddy Bear. He is having shortness of breath whenever using stairs. He's trying to get an earlier heart doctor appt. Stay strong sweet girl. God is on your side. Blessings to all of you, xoxo, Susie

  2. Awww - I'm sorry you've been so busy and ended up in the ER. I'm thankful you are ok. So thankful that God does give us daily strength, but I hope things calm down too! Your grands are just adorable!

  3. Wow...I am so glad you are OK now. Sending prayers, my friend.♥

  4. Sending prayers!! I'm glad God brought to your mind that verse. Claim it, sweet friend. I understand your busy and I ask God to move in your behalf...somehow I made it through when I worked like you are now.....praying for the day when you can walk away from this crazy (but fun too!) like I did eight years ago. Sending hugs!
    Oh your little ones are just too adorable!!

  5. Hi Bonnie ~ Can't remember my last sorry. Like everyone, and yourself our lives get so busy, and we've been dealing with my dearest's health issues. I loved all your pictures..What a beautiful family you have. It's obvious you are a blessing to many. Sorry you had to be in ER, but so glad you are alright. Sending love and hugs.

  6. Hello Bonnie, your grandchildren are the cutest little ones. I have two grandbabies now! I'm so sorry you were having health issues and feeling poorly, and I do hope you are feeling better now. I will say a prayer for you. It can get so hectic around this time of year, so please pace yourself and have a peaceful, joyous Christmas season. : )

    love, ~Sheri
