So I had an early morning ultrasound at the hospital today. It was -28 degrees on a Sunday morning and my appointment was at 7 am. I originally tried to get this appointment changed to a different time because I always say, not another ‘red eye’, but I sucked it up and took it.
And WOW, what an awesome morning it was. I set my alarm at the little lake house for 6 am and I was actually awake early. And do you know why I was so happy this morning?
I felt good! My car started without being plugged in!
When I went outside to go to the car my breath was taken away by the stars in the sky! I was driving myself to my appointment. I was independent and healthy enough to do so!
My heated seat…. oh so Glorious!
On the way, I admired some Christmas lights that were still on at people’s houses along beautiful Lakeshore Drive.
When I got to the basically empty hospital, I saw this beautiful tree!
When I got up to the Diagnostic Imaging area, they were just opening the doors for the day. They were opening the doors for ME... to help me, to serve me and care for me…. for me. Wow. I was honored. All of these people along my journey were working to help and care for me and for others on this first Sunday in 2022.
I was in and out in no time.
You know there is something about the early mornings that makes them so special and serene.
Anyhow, thanks for listening to my ‘stream of gratitude’, and thank you to all of you who help me along my journey. I love you all!
Look What I Was Graced With! Many of you know that I love little tea sandwiches. These sandwiches come by many names. Funeral Sandwiches I am guessing is probably the second most popular to ‘Tea Sandwiches’. Call them what you will, just don’t call me late for the sandwiches! 🙂 I can skip the desserts… Continue reading It Is So Much More Than A Sandwich!
Although I have not done it every year, I have for most years, written a letter to my daughter at Christmas time. I like to share with her about the year, her achievements and milestones, and mostly how proud I am of her and to let her know much her Dad and I love her.… Continue reading A Christmas Letter To My Daughter
Some of You Know…. And Some Don’t… Know that my Honey Don is a lovely writer of poems that are inspired by his deep connection to Source/God. This was his poem from 10 years ago. I thought it was so worth sharing again today in 2021. My Honey’s Christmas Message 2011 Peace on earth and… Continue reading The Peace Love Can Give
