Lots of great things have happened today (SL). I was able to see a dear and wonderful and fabulous friend visiting from New York; the sun shone brightly, several people sent the kindest and most thoughtful gestures of love; and a wonderful friend delivered a spectacular dinner tonight. How great is that? How blessed am I? The depth of my gratitude is limitless.
Now, despite all of today’s SL’s, the day has been a real F-bomb kind of day. Funk city over here at Brookside. I have to admit it. Probably has something to do with the fact that I have had excruciating pain for a solid 8 days, my brain works about 12% of the day (on a good day!) and I’m constantly being told what I “can’t” do. Hmmm…so NOT how I roll!
Then, lo and behold, one of my dearest friends sent two of the most perfectly timed quotes (have I mentioned how much I LOVE quotes?). She didn’t even know about the F-bomb kind of day. Even though it was a yucky day, I am going to bed (yes…at 8:00!) thinking about these thoughts! Thank you MHB for these beautiful SL’s!
