My blog is a way for me to share in the wonder of each day. I know there are others like me that due to medical issues have our days numbered and would like to make the most of them in a positive and gifting way for ourselves and for those around us.

From Summer, straight to Winter?

Here's a flurry of pictures showing what I/we have been up to recently.......

Brrrrr.... What a way to start Fall!
The beautiful leaf mats was the idea given by Brenda. She has done this every year with her girls. We had a good time making these after collecting different leaves from around here. Grace, Brenda and I made several and gave most of them away to some of the relatives in the family group picture above.
As you can see, even with limitations, life does not have to be boring, especially with family who are willing to help the gimp along.
"Loneliness is worse than any ailment. With family, friendship, love and companionship, even the worst disability is bearable!" RJM
I take my thoughts above from the months I spent in the hospital. Loneliness almost consumed me at times but knowing my family and friends would be taking time out to come see me, gave me hope. Those moments of companionship meant the most to me and I looked forward to them. I cried when they left and I missed them terribly, even my Myrtle, but I immediately began to count the hours until I would see them again.
Remember those who are in the hospitals, laid up at home or are in care centers. Their very hearts and lives can depend on visits and companionship. I know that even a stranger, willing to take time to talk and share a few moments wakes up the soul to hope and happiness.

Interim Post

A quick note to let my blogging friends know an update is coming right away. I spent most of today just trying to change and update my page layout and etc. Still more work to do but I have a blog idea popping in my head and hopefully I'll be back in a day or two? Yep, that's the plan.

"I'm done procrastinating. From now on I'll only put aside for tomorrow the things I can't do today and today I'll truly enjoy doing the things I can." RJM

more at ya!
