Hello everyone, I do hope you all had a super Sunday....mine was as it should be "quiet" The temperature on my deck was 43.....unbelievable I know but oh so soothing.
First I want to thank everyone for their kind comments. They were so warm, uplifting and soothing. I was thankful that I was able to journal last night as it was too late to call anyone when I got home, it was nice to be able to write about it. I didn't last night nor did I today read over last night's blog. I just got it all out, now I will now let the words just "be".
I wasn't able to fall asleep until after 4am this morning. My mind was full of chatter and my heart was heavy with sadness. Today, I realize that I did all I could and am at peace with the world again but still feel the sadness. My sister, Sheila called me at 7:30 am. So good to hear her voice, she said, Babe, "you wanted to help that woman and you did." Thanks Sis your words mean so much to me. We talked, for an hour and I wish I could remember all of our conversation but I was so tired and went back to sleep right away. I did manage to go to church at noon and lit a candle for my favorite patient and his family. This family will need many prayers in the days ahead.
The day has passed and I slept through it off and on. I just couldn't keep my eyes open. It was very hot today, I needed to wear crocs when walking on my deck as the wood was too hot to the touch. This evening I watered my flowers and plants, and wouldn't you know there are a couple of shoots coming up where I planted my gladiolas. I had to smile because to me it was a sign of life. I love it and I am excited to see how far they will grow through the soil as I am still not sure if I planted them in the right amount of it. My hanging baskets are beautiful, I couldn't believe how full and pretty they were today. The flowers smell so good when watered as I get to smell the earth as well.
I managed to use my glider for 20 minutes tonight and I am really looking forward to Curves tomorrow. Funny isn't it, as just after 2 weeks I feel sluggish when I don't exercise. I look forward to the girls and laughing along side of them. I know that I am the happiest and content when I am smiling, enjoying life when I can, not only help people but their happy, caring personalities help me to be the best person I can be. We all need each other.
I BBQ'd kish kabobs tonight for supper, beef chunks, peppers, onions and mushrooms. I BBQ'd two but after eating one I was full. It was delicious and I will have the other one tomorrow for my supper.
Am off to read my favorite blogs and comments......Good Night my friends and God Bless you for each and every one of you are special, especially to me.
