I love gardens. I love the calming effects it has on the soul. Just enjoying the beauty and letting cares slip away. ow it soothes and comforts when our thoughts go astray. I could have used a lovely garden the past few days. To reflect, to hope, to pray. I saw the Dr. Thursday evening and was a bit shaken by the results. Currently being referred to more Dr's so they can try to determine all that is going on. As my husband jokingly says, "why do you think they call it a practice? They are guessing as well." Not the most reassuring thought right now. I am also not a person who likes Dr's or testing at all! My blood pressure rises just walking through the door. As a Mom I've put myself last on the priority list for quite some time. I am learning that really doesn't benefit anyone in my family. They need me and I owe it to myself and them to do better. So this time I am following through and praying. Cherishing my days and trying to slow down. (This is the big challenge for me). I am praying and trusting God to guide me though this. I am also praying for my Mom, who received an abnormal mammogram and is going for more testing. She has already endured more health issues than any person should ever have to endure. They say God never gives us more than we can handle, and I am holding on to that faith. For some things are just not in our control. A concept that for me is hard to grasp. I wish I had the power to fix it and make it all better, but I can't, I can pray.
I can enjoy the beauty around me and I can stay positive. :-) So that is my goal for each day... to take things day by day. That's all we can do.
What a lovely day it was today! Sun shining, not too hot or cold, perfect. :-) We did several activities of daily life. Hayley and I did homework, while Jerry and Kathleen shopped for groceries. :-) Hayley practiced her flute, she's so excited and doing well. We participated in our communities Unity walk, Hayley walked along with her girl scout troop. Jerry also made and cleaned up dinner tonight. This is something he does each Sunday to give me a break and I appreciate it so much. Tomorrow Hayley is off school and I'm looking forward to the day. Have some activities planned, then tomorrow night I'm helping out at her Girl Scout troop meeting. We'll be donating coats and boots for those less fortunate. This will kick off our busy week ahead!
Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead! Many Blessings!!
