Along The Way
I am not going to try to explain my absence the past two months. In my mind April and May didn't even exist. I won't go into detail, let's just say that I have been in "nurse" mode for quite a while. The world of Mrs. DD has been on hold. I am hopeful that I can return to some sense of normalcy or perhaps I should call it my new normal.
Along the way I have viewed the normal elements of life in a little different way. Yesterday I took a much needed walk around the neighborhood. I saw the flowers as more of a miracle than in the past.
The magnolia blossoms are about to burst forth in all their splendor. The gardenias were not only pretty to look at but also heavenly to smell.
I even eyed some peaches that will make an appearance on my kitchen table in just a couple of months.
Along the way I have experienced the true goodness of people. In phone calls, texts, cards, visits and even goodie boxes.... friends and family have been there. God was present each and every moment. He used his "angels" to bring me peace and comfort.
Even simple tasks have taken on a "fun" element. Believe it or not doing laundry is a joy! :-) Cooking a meal is like going on vacation....really!
My new journey is not over but I am certain that "along the way" God will be walking beside me. Hope to be back soon with reports on what Mrs. DD has been up to! Blessings!
