Happy Thursday!

Good morning! I hope everyone is safe after Michael. All my friends from the Hive live in the area where the hurricane hit the strongest. Everyone is fine, so far and praise God, but with lots of damage to their properties. 

Well, today I am having my 7th back surgery. This time they are putting screws on both hips (SI Joint) and expanding the screws and fusion all the way to the tailbone. I have been dealing with chronic pain for the last 9 months and every day it gets worse and worse. I am tired of hurting 24/7! I am in the hands of my Healer Jesus, as well as an amazing neurosurgeon, Dr. Greg Sheer. I am all packed up and ready to get fixed! My grandchildren helped me packed my bag and most of my unicorns are in, as well as my unicorn headband, unicorn pj's, unicorn everything. Oh yes, they told me that they will bring me cookies and balloons to the hospital. 

Have you ever see the movie "Life is Beautiful"? It came out back in 1997 and it won all kinds of awards.  The story line goes like this: In 1930s Italy, a carefree Jewish book keeper named Guido starts a fairy tale life by courting and marrying a lovely woman from a nearby city. Guido and his wife have a son and live happily together until the occupation of Italy by German forces. In an attempt to hold his family together and help his son survive the horrors of a Jewish Concentration Camp, Guido imagines that the Holocaust is a game and that the grand prize for winning is a tank.

It made an impact on my heart back then of how everything in life depends on the attitude you have towards everything. Move the clock to today, I find myself playing a game with Andrew (6) and Carolina (4). I told them that a good doctor is fixing my back so I can go canoeing, bike riding and swimming with them. I made sure that  my hospital room will look like a unicorn dream room and that they will see the good in all of this instead of worrying about their "Lita". 

My sweet neighbor gave me this to drink after I come home. She knows I love unicorns and smoothies, the perfect combination!

In one of the crops I attended last weekend I bought a sunburst template from Creative Memories and I love it! I made these layouts using it.

Please pray for me for a fast recovery and also pray for the people who has suffered loss in the storm. I am praying for you as well. Blessings and be happy!


  1. This is your favorite nurse here! Positive thoughts and prayers will allow you to have a very successful surgery today. The power of love and prayer can’t be beat! I will think of you today! You are the most beautiful person Bea! Best of Luck and love ya dearly! Ambulated early and take your meds! Hugs and kisses!

  2. Bea, praying for you and all those having to deal with such pain. You're such a strong woman and a fantastic attitude, I know you will do well. I will also pray for those who have suffered Hurricane Michael, not just in Florida but all the way up the East coast.
