Telling Thursday

Thank you to my first follower. You made my day after my experience earlier. I must tell on myself, today I have done something I never thought I would be clumsy enough to do. In preparing a late lunch I reached to close the cupboard door and accidentally caught the plate rack on the wall with three of my most treasured plates on display. They all fell and shattered, one on the counter on it's way to the floor. One of those pieces stuck in the top side of my foot and hit a blood vessel. I put a pressure bandage on it and wrapped it snugly. A whole lot of prayer along the way was most helpful and the bleeding stopped in about fifteen minutes. God has blessed me this day as when all was done it only required some tape to hold the skin together. Praise god from whom all blessings flow. I am so grateful that I know of his power and trust in him to take control of things when I need him.
That being said I was preparing chicken and potatoes to put in the oven. Yum Yum God blessed that too.
This brings to mind when I was a small child and was putting water in the chickens drinking pans that were scattered out in the yard. I accidentally got cut on a glass jug and ran inside. My Aunt was there and that is when I found out my mother had a reaction to seeing blood. She was sent throughout the house to gather all the spiderwebs she could find. I was told to lie on the floor and put my foot up on the wall. When mama returned my Aunt took those spiderwebs and wrapped them around my toe and had me stay there for some time. The toe healed without any problems and the scar is a reminder to wear shoes always.
OK now on to something else. I attended a writers workshop Tuesday night and found it very informative. My children are wanting me to write my memories so I shall try to learn all I can in order to make it a worthy read.I would recommend anyone wanting to write to find a (free of course) workshop to attend.
For now gotta go as the smell is enticing me to the kitchen. I think I'll use a foam plate. LOL Til the next post, Just This...Alice


  1. I am so sorry about your plates! That would make my heart so sad. . . Do you at least have pictures of them?

  2. I am so sorry about your plates. Once I had cups and saucers on a shelf. The cups were from special people in my life. I can't remember who knocked the shelf but it fell. Sets were broken, a saucer here a cup there. I know how you feel.
