DSCN4601Did this for you and me..

Psalm 24:1

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it

In the past few weeks I have gained a new respect and perspective on…Nothing earth shattering. Just understanding and appreciation for the little things in life. My hubby, Mr. G. has needed my assistance as he recovers from an infection in his shoulder. I will not elaborate, but my little world was shaken a bit, after all he is the chef in this house. I am laughing at this. What is true, is that I am thankful for the capabilities of Doctor’s and Nurse’s, for their commitment to attend to the needs of the sick and infirmed. He has a wonderful nurse that has been assigned to see him once a week, to check up on him, and make sure that all is intact. Tremendous… In all of this I look at the world around me… a little confined right now, but I am focusing on the blessings of life on earth, in the simplicity of a little flower that smiles at me and brings me joy. I am taking time to get my house in order…that includes my heart..doing some weeding there,  to make room for what is healthy, so that it will bloom and be beautiful.

    Thank you for the words focusing on what we have and not what we do not. I am currently trying to remember a quote which I heard last week on the radio. The essence of it was do not waste your time considering a different life , i.e. do not try to compete with another, or envy, or imitate. Your post reminded me of this sentiment.

    Thanks again,

    Being suddenly constrained by life can be difficult. We never know what’s coming our way, do we? I had to struggle a bit when it was my turn to care for my mother. I loved her and mostly didn’t resent it, but I had to learn to be patient with myself, too, and my own frustrations in the situation.

    I hope all goes well. As you say, having good medical care is a real blessing, especially when dealing with things like infections. I hope your hubbie has an easy, smooth recovery, and that your flowers keep blooming for you!

    Hi Linda, I appreciate your thoughts.. Thank you! He will have surgery again, maybe in May. He had experienced pain for years after his first implant. The pain has subsided and he is feeling better. He is getting back to his talkative self… Lol!

    Sweet post. Hope the Mr. is well mended by now. Yes, those little weeds sprout up everywhere–outside and inside.

      Patti, he has about two more weeks of antibiotics. Once that clears up he will have the new shoulder implant put in, so another surgery ahead, maybe in May. Thank you for sharing your concern for him. We have been in this home for almost a year and a half. He had rototilled the back yard and at the time we weren’t sure what we would do with it. We planted an appletree today but the weeds have really taken over, but there are little pansies and forget me nots that are intermingled with them and they are sweet. I have attempted some weeding back there but it will take a while to get it under control…
