Since I only spend my time in bed I have lots of time to browse the internet. To keep myself from getting bored I make sure to visit sits that gives out information that are useful to me and my family’s future. Right now one of the website that I frequently visit is the United States Gold Bureau wherein I learn about gold coin, silver, bullion, ingots and the gold market in general. It has a lot of articles and even the trends that you can follow to show you how to deal with gold. Hopefully in the future I can use all the information that I have learned from this website.
We are only three in the family. I am the youngest and at the age of 15, I lost my parents. From then on, my older brother took care of us. He worked so that he can fund my older sister to school. When I had my accident and was declared to have an operation, I told him in a part joke, part truth, if he is ready to accompany me and he readily said. All throughout the ordeal he was there for me. Laughing with me, having trauma because I was crying and calling for our mommy when I am in pain and carrying me to show me that I can stand up. We told him that now he can take any healthcare jobs if wanted to. But kidding aside, I owe him again big time. He and his wife plus their kids have been a tremendous boost to my fight. You see how the kids are eager to see me sit and stand up. I can see their happiness when they saw me sitting on my own the first time. And when I stood up even if I am being carried by their father, they are so happy. Oh I love my family. I don’t know how I can repay their kindness but for the rest of my life I know I will be of service to them no matter what it takes. Because I have seen in them another sign of unconditional love. I am so blessed to be surrounded by people who love me truly.
When everybody is busy with their trick or treating here I am at home. But I am still thankful because today I was able to accomplish a lot of course with the help of my older brother. I hope my days of staring at our room’s door lock will be over soon. We are arranging for a physical theraphy session for me. Well, not for the operated knee but my left leg first. Seems like I need to learn to walk through the tip toe system. It’s quite challenging you know. But as my brother said..it will be over soon. All I need to do is to be patient and think of things to make everything better. Oh I just love my big brother. He carries me just to show me I can stand up and can walk. In the absence of the husband he was there to take his place. It’s quite sweet. And to top it all he adds humor to the situation so my depression is a cured even for just a little while.
I am the type of person who before indulging into something would end up researching about that something first. Really I don’t know why I am like that. For example, if I have new medicine to take I would first search for its side effect and what precautions should I do before taking it. Or if I have a hobby or interest I want to pursue I would look for sources, history etc about it. Something to make me think if the hobby is worth doing or not.
Despite being in bed, can you believe I am busy. Everyday, I spent the entire morning working. No, I am not complaining. Rather I am amazed how God provides. And how HE really do not forsake those who remain faithful to him. Aside from work, I treasure those friends I found online. No, I have not met them personally but their generosity have pass through the cable of communications and have reached me in our house. They are more precious than gold you know. And speaking of gold, that reminds me of the bullion I saw one time in the place of work of the husband. It reminds me how good investing our hard earned money into them. As the website of United States Gold Bureau have said bullion, gold and silver would never ran out in time. They have been here since ages and would exist as one of the best investment for us humans.
Another tropical depression is being monitored. I am loving the weather since I feel so sticky and itchy. Somehow the gloomy weather gives me reprived. Right now I am using two electric fan. I don’t like to used the aircondition because it would mean I have to close the door. And being bedridden that makes me feel so isolated.
I am thankful today that I feel so light. I was able to go on a sitting position. My sister in law and my niece went to the school PTC, then went to shop. It was my niece birthday yesterday and as a treat they went shopping for books. Yeah! Books. That’s my niece wish. Another bookworm in the family. haha.
Living in the modern times has made us blessed indeed. Modern technology has made our lives easier making us perform various difficult tasks in matter of minutes. We are living in a time where everything is made easy and always available even in the aspect of medicine. I remember when I was young; I experienced being treated with the use of various herbal plants. When I got coughs, my mom would just get a few pieces of Lagundi leaves from our backyard, boil it, and let me drink the juice of the leaves. The procedure sometimes is tedious and it would always take some time for me to feel the healing effects of the leaves. Now with the help of modern technology, herbal plants are made into capsules making it more easy to take and more available to people. Same goes with other herbal plants like Oregano. We all know that Oregano is a perennial herb with many uses and benefits. It’s more than a culinary spice. It has been proven to cure various illnesses such as coughs, colds, influenza, mild fevers, fungal infections, indigestion, stomach upsets, enteric parasites, sore throats and painful menstruation. It can also be used as an antiseptic. When I was young, we used Oregano to cure headaches as well. My grandparents used to mix the leaves with virgin coconut oil to produce oregano oil. We would always have that inside our medicine cabinet. It has been very accessible for us since we grow them in our backyard. Nowadays since living in the city sometimes limits us of not having enough space to grow plants, technology has helped us get these natural plants ready and available online from stores like bio-alternatives.net. Their oregano oil is extracted from mountain grown wild organic Mediterranean Oregano, and goes through a special process of pressing and steaming to get pure and chemical free oregano oil. Bioalternatives.net also offers other medicinal products like taurine and tea tree oil. With technology we can easily take advantage of the benefits of herbal plants with just a few clicks.
Last time I went to a saloon was a day before my accident. I had my hair cut and had a foot scrub and a pedicure. At that time my foot are swollen and so the pedicurist ( who have known my foot so well! lol) have taken extra care in cleaning my foot. Then she told me that she will not apply nail polish to give my nails a rest. As it turn outs that is a wish decision. Nail polish is a big no, no for operation. And now, that I am bedridden and no time to go saloon and clean my toe nails I am saying a big thank you to her for that decision. Actually she is quite good. Actually I was telling her that she might be interested in enrolling herself into a cosmetology school ( the one near her residence or the cosmetology school in Phoenix ) like Regency Beauty Institute which is continually expanding.
Before I treasure the fact that we are independently living. Me and my four year old live in the house that we own. Daddy would go on a vacation to be with us when work permits. My older sister is here during work week. I cook, I clean, I do everything in the house. And I thought that is the best setup. Until I met an accident. From that day on I realized that independence has its limitation. I now am scared to be alone. And because of this I am now contemplating on what to do. At first I wanted to relocate in the province. But now I am having second thought. Especially when I have limited housing choices. Most of the house are not really of my liking. There are those who windows should be replaced. It would be much better if we have replacement window Maryland but unfortunately we don’t have. Since the husband don’t want to sell, I think if we relocate will end up renting. Oh decisions! If life is only as easy as replacing a window then I guess I can have the best.
On Oct 26, there would be a Halloween party on the school of the little girl. It’s time is Pirates of the Halloween. I was happy to have read it because her daddy bought her a pirate costume last year. Unfortunately she does not want to wear it. So what shall I do? Thinking of ways to make her wear the costume made me also think of ships and gold bullion. I remember all the story wherein pirates would take over another ship to get their possessions. Most of the time they seek gold. You see the United States Gold Bureau, gold has been in the market since time immemorial. Its value never diminished so its a good investment. Given a choice I would really try to buy, collect and later on trade it.
