Well I downloaded the pictures tonight and had only three pictures, my batteries must of died without either Terry or I noticing it. Terry is talking on the phone to our best friend Annie. I'm sure she will appreciate my posting this. LOL
June 16/09...now this basket looks so much better than....
May 30/09... this one, I was so happy when I bought this and thought it was so pretty. What a difference a couple of weeks make eh!
I am sorry Marcy, but when I get to Costco I will buy a big bag of batteries and will show you everything I planted as each day I am so pleased when I see them. It seams the past few days they have just taken off. I have several shoots up now where I planted my gladiolas. I am blessed to have such a calming and comfortable (although small) space just to sit and enjoy nature's beauty. There are more birds each day but I can't promise you a picture of them at my feeder, they fly away as soon as I open my patio doors. Once I have been sitting out there for awhile though the chirping starts and they are back. I will keep trying. I would like a picture of them for myself as well as one to show my friends.
When I left today for favorite patients funeral I had decided not to blog about it. I have attended far to many funerals in my lifetime and have always felt a great sadness. Oh but I just have to tell you all that this was one of the most beautiful funerals I have ever been too. (if there is such a thing) The church was full, it was as though everyone loved favorite patient as I did. I was so glad I didn't talk myself out of attending. I was so pleased and proud to have known this wonderful man. His funeral was traditional, old hymns were sung and old friends and former co-workers gave loving and even humorous eulogy's. Favorite Patients daughter sang Amazing Grace, (Acapulco). Her dad had asked her to do this for him and although it must of been very hard for her in her sadness she had the voice of an angel and it was beautiful. I don't think there was a dry eye in the church when she finished. We had not planned on going to the reception but his son asked us to stay and have a cup of coffee. As we were introduced something amazing happened. His friends and family who we had never met, knew about us and the course we teach. They also knew I had spent Saturday at the hospital. They said lovely things to us and I knew that somehow in our small way we had helped this family. Our course is a pleasure to teach as it enables us to give the tools to those who are troubled, it also allows us to meet many wonderful people. Yes I felt sadness and shed tears but I also felt this celebration of my favorite patients life was a beautiful memorial. I almost felt him there among us. I bet he would of loved it. I didn't get a chance to say much to his wife, we hugged each other and I told her to call me if she ever wanted to chat or just have a coffee. We didn't stay very long but I was glad that we were a part of this special day.
Terry left around eleven this morning and I went out the door with her on my way to Curves. Honestly I think I am getting addicted to my work outs. I am enjoying them so much. I then came home, showered and dressed for this afternoon. Danielle picked me up at 1:15 and we drove into the city for the 2 o'clock service. It was cloudy today but warm and I enjoyed the drive as I was the passenger. We didn't say too much on our drive in but we chatted on our way home about how lovely everything was.
I got home around 4:30 and wasn't really hungry. I made a sandwich just before I came up to bed at 10. I knew I had to eat something as I take insulin twice a day and I had only yogurt for breakfast. I am happy to say I am feeling fine tonight and I wasn't sure I would be. I will continue teaching our course, caring for our patients and appreciate each one of them. They are very special to me.
Am off to catch up on my favorite blogs and comments......Good Night my friends, have a wonderful Thursday and as always God Bless......:-) Hugs
