As I was telling my fabulous pal Patty (in our pool class tonight), after the next appointment, I may give up on those acupuncture treatments. The results have been disappointing, and we can’t afford it. Even with their sliding scale set-up. Not really seeing any improvement in my wrist situation.
What MAY be on the mend though (but not because of acupuncture) is my ankle/feet swelling. Not that the edema is gone, it is absolutely not. The good news is that I may have found a way of controlling it. Well. Emma did. I just took her advice.
Way, way back, when I first began my stomping around in the neighborhood, a beautiful friend recommended some socks that had treated her feet well. I purchased a tester pair. Then, those worked so well, I bought some more. She was right, they were WONDERFUL.
For months now, my Empress has been suggesting compression hosiery. Yesterday, the testers of those arrived. And I wore them around all night. Of course I looked ridiculous, but Dan’s seen me in worse. So that part was unimportant.
Once I got the bastards on, I noticed an immediate SOMETHING. By the end of the evening, as I took them off for bed, we could see that this had promise. I’ll keep you posted. Thank you Kari, and Em, for helping my painful hooves to feel much better. If just for a short while.
As I mentioned yesterday, this was our Monday morning. So when I woke up (finally, after a few false starts) I knew what the day would hold. With mixed emotions I left the bed. Hearing this:
lead with your smile.
As in, fake it ’til you make. Give the world your best face, and if you continue to smile and act happy, it will begin to actually BE how you feel.
It wasn’t until later though, that I got around to flipping our daily draw. I knew though, before I left the bed, that we’d be heading towards this stack.
‘Yes, your idea is Divinely guided . . . .
please take action to bring your idea to fruition.’
‘Your idea is an answered prayer. Even though it may push you past your comfort zone . . . .
Ask for, and be willing to receive all of the support that you need to bring the idea to fruition. Know that I’ll be there all along the way, and you can ask me for help at any time. I’m especially glad to give you ideas and creative insights to support your life’s purpose.’
Working with Archangel Uriel:
Uriel’s energy is pale yellow, like a candle’s glow. Whenever you need ideas or intellectual guidance, contact Uriel. His energy is aligned with the amber crystal.”
Challenges spring up, and we get anxious. That is when we need reminding the most that we created this life, we chose this body, and we carefully selected who was going to walk this path with us. When we are handed a validation like this one, it’s such a gift!
We get a clear and concise confirmation that what we’re doing is the RIGHT thing, where we’re going is the RIGHT way, and who we are surrounding ourselves with are the RIGHT folks.
These messages are nothing but positive, and for that, I’m beyond grateful.

could have been a more difficult ride than it was, I’m having some gear issues, and will need to take my bike in for a repair soon, but this afternoon I managed the quick 3.859 miles up to the pool and back in 23 minutes 28 seconds. My pace (of 9.9 MPH) showed that all is not well on two wheels right now, though.
is the map from Dan that wouldn’t send, which arrived after last night’s post went up. You can see it HERE, finally.
is only to let you know that I’ve noticed more ads popping up. Near the bottom of my posts. That I did not authorize, and that I get nothing from. It’s a WordPress prerogative. Merely FYI.
