Life Lately

Life is simple, slow and strange right now, and I’m thinking of you, hoping you are hanging in there. Wish I could report stellar health news because I know how much you worry about me and offer your prayers.

The good news is I am experiencing more good days than bad thanks to discipline and devotion to a mindful diet, lifestyle, and meditation practice.

More good news is that in spite of the GI issues and fatigue, my immune system seems to be working well.

Chronic Illness Woes

It is quite a balancing act because of the challenge to absorb and benefit from the nutrients I consume. Since my chronic pancreatitis complicates digesting fats and certain proteins, it has become a part-time job to plan when, what, and how much to eat daily. I cannot afford to ever be impulsive.

Today was hard. I only visit the grocery store every two weeks, and while alone there, a painful attack prevented me from making it to the checkout. All that shopping, and I had to leave my full cart.

What a blessing I made it home to discover our son there unexpectedly on a lunch break so I didn’t have to suffer alone. I feel 90% better as I type this and recover from the episode.

These are lonely days as well, and I’m sure there are plenty of folks who can relate. I’d love to hear how you are coping with distancing as well as ways you may be stretching and growing as a result of an unusual summer. xox

Peace to you right where you are.

    Dear Michele….thank you again for answering my email regarding the French sconces and providing so much inspiration for us! Exactly what I was looking for! Also…thank you for the meaningful quotes that you post as well….today’s first quote from John Piper especially hit home for me! Thank you!

      So happy to help, Laura. Thanks for the inspiration and for your kind words. I have the best readers. xox

    A plethora of amazing possibilities for sconces! And the John Piper quote is something we all should reflect on daily.

      So much wisdom in that quote – thanks so much for playing along!

    Michele: I love how you showcase all these lovely rooms. I couldn’t help notice in your house that the hallway lighting seems to appear flush and very modern looking. I am wanting to redo the hallway lights in my house which I would call quasi French coastal cottage. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Michele
      June 30, 2019 / 6:05 pm

      Hi Paula. Are you referring to the second photo in this post with the script on the wall? I snapped the photo at RH in Chicago (3Arts building) so that sconce is available from RH, and there are similar sconces further down in the post. Let me know if you’re referring to another post with my hallway. I have modern flush sconces in my stairway I can tell you about if you like. 🙂

      June 30, 2019 / 11:16 pm

      Ahhhhh. Got it! They are those simple 6″ recessed can lights ( and were already in here in the house when we bought it. Let me know if you have any other questions – love helping. 🙂

    Michele: This is beginning to be a who’s on first routine. LOL. I was originally asking for suggestions from you for hall lighting for my house. Now, if you were to do something in YOUR HALLWAY that was a French country look and not the canned lights what would you do. Thx

    Just found your site & am thrilled to see French wall sconces. LOVED the Maya Angelou quote. Intend to share it (and your site!) with others!

      So happy to have you here! Come back often, and I’m grateful for the shares and pins – they’re such important ways to keep the inspiration flowing! Peace to you.

    Living with a chronic condition can wear on one. I’m so sorry to hear your pancreatic pain is so bad. Is it something you ate that would cause the onset of such a severe pain?

    I’d like to wish your Canadian followers a Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦

      July 1, 2020 / 3:21 pm

      Happy Canada Day! My attack yesterday was definitely associated with what I ate since I fell ill about 40 minutes after eating a small salad for lunch. I wasn’t worried about that meal at all in terms of the amount of fat and my ability to digest the vegetables, but who knows – sometimes when the fiber is too bulky, it’s an issue. The horrible part was that I left the house right after eating – never again! 🙂

  8. July 1, 2020 / 5:24 pm

    Hi Michele,
    I’m so sorry about your episode at the store. My heart goes out to you. I know a little of what you’re going through but not nearly the magnitude. You amaze me with the grace that you demonstrate day after day while you are dealing with overwhelming health issues. Sending you love, prayers and admiration,

      Thank you, Holly. I’m muddling through and will hopefully have more answers after an upcoming appointment. Doing all I can to stay cancer free, but genetics are at work so…I have decided to be happy for the rest of my life, come what may. I know you get it — you’re such a lovely example of grace for me. xox
