Yay 2010~~! Got great hopes for you!

Hello all of my dear blog friends. Here are the body parts that made my 2009 so challenging. I tore ligaments in my right wrist, had them fixed up surgically and then decided to get tendonitis in both wrists...all since March 2009. So I've dealt with some changes this year!
I began doing yoga at home. I LOVE IT!!! I feel so much more limber and "younger"~~thank you Diane Cook for recommending this amazing discipline to me and encouraging me way back when~
This is what my bench looks like. I haven't even attempted any jewelry since April...I don't need to tell you how very much I miss it...
The last piece I worked on in April....I'm gonna finish this piece this month!! My physical therapist said that I should try to work on jewelry for 5 minutes per day. Yesss!!!

Acupuncture and physical therapy have been helpful, and I've also cut out white sugar and am eating more anti inflammatory foods: ginger, tumeric, deep green salads, blueberries and green tea, among others. It's been a slowwww process, but I'm feeling better day by day~

My favorite song during this time is "While I'm Waiting" sung by John Waller.

I'm waiting on You Lord. I'm hopeful. I will serve You while I'm waiting.

And I've been reading many of your blogs, seeing you on Facebook and thinking of you~~I pray 2010 is a year of joy for all of us! Bless you my friends. Joy to you all~~~
