If we were having coffee…..
Oh so lovely to see you, my friend! I’ve been MIA for several weeks. Life was challenging and I was a bit depleted….still am, but I’m improving. And you? How are you?
If we were having coffee…I’d tell you that we had to move my brain injured brother three times in three months…hence the aforementioned exhaustion. Our long term health care system is so broken! But I’m at least able to report that, after a couple of nightmare facilities, he’s now in the highest rated facility in our area. And I’m immensely grateful to not have to worry quite so much about his care and if he’s actually receiving his medication properly.
In other news, I’d absolutely have to share with you that there’s a worthy cause that needs all of our voices. Please read about it HERE and please make a call or send an email.
If we were having coffee….I’d tell you that we’re seeing signs of Spring which is my favorite time of year. Our temps are still chilly. In fact ….this is what Wednesday looked like, much to my chagrin!
But thankfully, the snow didn’t last and the grass has gone from brown to deep green. And the daffodils are up. Our allium and hollyhocks are already showing too. I so love watching the natural world wake up!
My husband and I talk every Spring about other things that we might plant. It’s usually about various flowers or bushes. But this year, my friend Nancy turned me on to something called a fruit cocktail tree that you can order from a catalog. I’m such a novice in the world of gardening! I keep wondering if it’s truly possible for 5-6 different fruit to exist on one tree and if it could even survive our winters AND our deer population! You can see it HERE. If anyone has any experience with this please drop me a comment….could this be a viable thing?
Two days ago I wrote about hope… And how much I need to cultivate hope right now. Spring seems to have a way of keeping me hopeful. I hope it’s helping you to be hopeful also!
If we were having coffee… I would want to know what’s going on with you. How is Spring treating you? What’s new in your world? Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me what’s up…
I’m glad you’re here 💜
