After 25 days in the hospital and a week coming up at rehab, I am seeing the way to get back home. Strength and anticipation, hope and thankfulness.

Life changes us in so many ways that we never expect. We are renewed in a new direction and energy. It’s inspiring, really!

I pray that those who are still ill will find their way through isolation and anxiety and bloom again. I want that for myself! Do what I love to do and write my thoughts down to set my place at normal again.

It’s a sunny day! The warmth has claimed me as I rest in this recliner. I’m wrapped in something new. I breathe well. I’m not coughing my head off and there is a quietness that the Lord has favored me with.

Be thankful for the barest little things in your life. Spark a new interest to celebrate a new day. Turn on some music and dance a bit. A shuffle will do. Be the music. Be the breath of life around you.

Stay happy and well readers. I send my love to you all. You matter to me so much more than I had ever thought.

Between you and me has shared much and will do more. Thank you!
