A Thankful Day...






Ever have something staring you right in the face, but you don't recognize what it is you're looking at? That's what I'm feeling like this week. Every time I sit down to make a post, I feel tongue-tied. I just don't have a clue what to write about. Have you ever been in that position?

Last week I visited the good ole' mammography clinic and had the scare of my life. They thought there was something "unusual" on the x-ray. But, after going back today and having the radiologist give me the all clear, I'm breathing easy again and thankful for small blessings.

It's times like these that make you stop and say thank you for the life I lead and the wonderful people I've come to meet along the way. At age 61 I'm awed by all the things that I've experienced in my life. Not only have I been a musician and soloist, I'm traveled to different countries, I've worked as a registered nurse and I experienced having three wonderful children. If all that isn't enough to bring out a few stories, then I don't know what is!

Have a happy day!

  1. Glad to hear that short scare didn't turn into more ! I think we all get that blank feeling-especially when posting. And yes, it sounds like you've experienced a lot so far. Wonder what's still coming :)

    1. I can't wait to find out what's next! We are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida soon, so that should be exciting!

    1. Yes, it's good to do a check up, but not too often.

  3. What a scary way to have things put into perspective. Considering family history, that had to be a hard wait for the "all clear" signal. I'm so glad you are okay, and even found the silver lining in the experience... that of being reminded of all those blessings. And for me, YOU are one of my blessings.

    1. Thank you, Rettakat, for these kind words. It takes this kind of shock, sometimes, for us to realize what's important. I'm grateful for a loving family, including you, dear sister.
