It must be Spring!
Believe it or not, I saw 8 robins peking away at the dirt on the baseball field where I walk Sheba. It was 33 degrees, but it didn't keep the robins away! I think I might have seen a cardinal, too. Of course, I didn't have my camera...not in the habit of taking it with me. It must be spring...such hope and newness in the air! Mom is being discharged, after 6 weeks of illness. She goes home this Monday. I have seen to it that her aide will be available, the refridgerator full, the heat on in her apartment, and generally that the house is in order. Do I hear chirping? Friends, you have sent me wonderful words to live by. Thank you for taking time to express them here. When I get like this, depressed and lonely because life is throwing punches too often and too hard, I retreat to my spiritual side and get strength. Your words, my blogger friends, helped me get there. Thank you! I am feeling strong and purposeful, grounded and focused. My substitute teaching credentials are in order and I begin work, if I want to, next week. I plan to do it just a day or two a week, maybe a few days in a month...just enough to bring in some spending money to pay for my outings with the girls. Well, the sun is shining and Sheba is whining. The day is new and I feel true. Stay in the present, you can't go wrong Life, my friend, is a dance and a song. oooh...did I just write that? yes, I did! Until then, that's how I see it, Karen
