Celebrate The Small Things -- Dec 5

It's Friday and I'm Celebrating The Small Things!  Celebrate The Small Things is a weekly celebration where some bloggers have decided to post about something worth matter how big or small it is.

This week I'm celebrating:

  • My finger is finally feeling better.  I have arthritis in my hands (I have arthritis everywhere) and my thumb joint decided to flare up a couple of weeks ago.  It swelled and hurt like a mofo.  I saw the doctor yesterday and he prescribed an individually made splint that I have to wear for the next few weeks.  Luckily, it's not too much of a hindrance, although I'm not quite convinced it's going to doesn't look like much!


Apologies to everyone for my lack of visiting and hopping around.  It's been super hard to type, and typing with my super slow left hand has been driving me crazy!
  • Our family is also celebrating my daughter's confirmation this Saturday!  This means that she will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and be considered an adult in the eyes of the church.  We are very proud of her!

Happy Weekend!  

What are you celebrating?

  1. So sorry about the pain. Hope you find some relief soon,

    1. This crazy looking brace seems to be working!

  2. Ouch, my mother had to live with arthritis.
    Congrats to your daughter!

  3. Something about honey and cinnamon helps arthritis - not sure of amounts needed to mix.
    Congratulations for your daughter - quite a blessing.

    I may rejoin this blog hop later - needed some time away. Have a great weekend! take care of you.

    1. Unfortunately, I think I'm well past the home remedies :( Thanks for the visit Dixie! We'll be here when you're ready to come back.

  4. I think it's a miracle you're typing at all and could write this post. It sounds so painful. :( I hope the splint helps and you feel better soon.

  5. Hope you heal quickly!!! I injured my right arm a couple of years ago and couldn't type with it for a day or two--I make my living writing, so that was a bit terrifying! I tried one-hand typing, but that's a pain in the you-know. I've never been very comfortable with voice activation, so I can't even imagine using something like Dragon Dictation, but I guess if I ever have to, that's somewhat of an option.
