Find Beauty Friday

Hey y'all! It's Friday! Woo-hoo! You've made it to the weekend! I hear that, at least in our neck of the woods, this weekend is going to be beautiful and the sun will shine! If that doesn't make ya happy, then I don't know what will!

Update on the procedure, I'm now 4 days post-op, doing okay. Some hours are better than others. The most aggravating problem I'm having is swelling. Sort of looking like a chipmunk with a Winter's worth of food in my cheeks. I noticed this morning that I have a "yellow eye" like a black eye, but it's tinted yellow. I'm hoping it doesn't turn black! Also, slight blue tint of bruising around my nose.  Pain is manageable, the medication they gave me was too strong for me and making me sick. Let's just say that major dental/jaw work and being nauseous doesn't mix... like at ALL. I've been praying like a mad fool for comfort, and of course it's working! Talking is pretty difficult since the jaw itself is really sore, it hurts to move it. You don't even realize how much you "flap your jaws" until it hurts when you do! Ha! I also want to give a big thank you to all of you who are checking in on me. I am just getting to my computer today, so I'll try to respond to you. It means the world to me that you take the time out of your day to check in!

Now, on to Find Beauty Friday! I'm co-hosting with the oh so lovely Aimee from This Darling Day. We get together on her blog and share some great photos of major events or just something that caught your eye this week, sort of like the beauty in everyday life.

This week, since I haven't really been up and around, I'm sharing a photo I took in April when I went to see my family. This is going over the Mississippi River bridge in Baton Rouge. Funny how to take things for granted until you don't see them everyday.

IF you want to link up your photo, please do so by clicking the link at the bottom! This will stay open for 6 days.


  1. I am so glad you're doing ok. It could be worse. But I'm sorry you are having any discomfort period. :( I can't imagine not being able to move my jaw very much. I'm still praying for a quick recovery and now for you to be comfortable while you wait for your body to heal!

  2. I had just started typing up an email to ask how it was going when I saw that you posted! I'm glad to hear that you are on the mend! Hopefully that swelling will go down soon. I'll be praying and sending healing thoughts your way!

  3. Just stopping by from A Jack of All Trades. I have enjoyed looking around your blog. Thank you for sharing
