I must confess, that I threw myself a great big pity party this week.
The humidity was horrid,
the grass pollen unbearable,
the air quality oppressive,
and I felt miserable,
I was able to open up the whole house
and welcome in fresh air.
We went to a wonderful dinner with our dearest friends on Wednesday.
He has just completed chemo
for the second time in 6 years.
We were hoping that the worst would be over,
but it seems the doctor gave mixed news.
(I would so appreciate a prayer or two for him).
They were the kindest most thoughtful people before the cancer battle,
and they are the strongest and most inspirational since.
We have the best time with them, always.
My beloved Mr. was in a very frightening car accident on Friday.
He drives (drove) a Corvette convertible.
He was struck broadside on the drivers' side.
He is fine,
the car is not
(it's only stuff).
Finally, I love swapping,
and I pride myself on being a conscientious swapper,
this week I missed the deadline on a swap for the first time,
but I received another swap in the mail.
All of these beautiful images are of the perfectly beautiful heart
that I received from dear Dorthe.
We agreed to a private swap,
the only request I made was that
she include a small bit of drift wood in whatever she created for me.
I cannot thank you enough Dorthe.
I try not to get overly preachy about things here,
and I have never discussed my belief system before.
I am a Christian,
and all that implies,
I feel God's hand in my daily life,
and am grateful for that.
Looking back over the events of this past week,
I cannot help but beg of you
enJOY Your Blessings,
