This mornings word for me is..........

 

Enervated

 

 

Today I go in for the EEG. I was told to get half of my usual sleep so I did not take my sleeping pills. I have been awake all night so I am exhausted! I am also not allowed caffeine prior to the testing which seems to be the worst part....

LOVE

 

Not to just be corny...or a cliche.

 

So thankful for love of my wife, children, and others. Their care and patience especially with PD. And, to have them to love in return.

 

And an amazing growth in recognizing the real love of Christ through the journey with this disease.

Good morning,

 

For me the word is befuddled..... perplexed by many conflicting situations or statements.

 

So far this morning has been foggy and mixed up. I think I need some more coffee!

Word of the day: Adversity

 

‎"Adversity is a detour, not a road block, on the road of life. This detour will allow you to see things you have never seen, experience new things, and give you a new outlook on life. All the while knowing the detour will still lead you to the place you want to be." Shared from a post yesterday by Mark the pharacist

I'm sure you will enjoy this. I never knew one word in the English language that could be a noun, verb, adj, adv, prep.

 

 

UP

 

Read until the end ... you'll laugh.

 

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is 'UP.' It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

 

It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

 

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election (if there is a tie, it is a toss UP) and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and cleanUP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

 

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.

 

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is blocked UP.

 

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UPabout UP!

 

To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

 

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with (UP to) a hundred or more.

 

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearingUP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now . . . my time is UP!

 

Oh . . . one more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night?

 

U

 

P!

 

Did that one crack you UP?

 

Don't screw UP.. Send this on to everyone you lookUP in your address book . . . or not . . . it'sUP to you.

 

Now I'll shut UP
