Here we are, the first of May. Already beginning the second quarter of 2015. Where does the time go?
I'm pleased to report that I am finally over the fight between my very own immune system and the long dormant virus dwelling in my body for decades. I was expecting the extremely painful rash and blisters but I must admit I was not expecting the flu-like symptoms that accompanied my bout of shingles. I was fortunate enough to recognize the rash immediately and started on an anti-viral medicine. But it was quite an ordeal nonetheless.
Lucy has been just fine, oblivious to my wearing pj bottoms and sweatshirts for several weeks. We've run the gamut of weather but today is sunny and much cooler than normal. Lucy takes advantage of the sunlight and her two pillows, snuggling like a little puppy between the bone and bee pillows.
If we had known how much she would love the pillows, we would have gotten some long ago.
I have pretty much kept up with your blogs and want to send out warm and heartfelt wishes to our friend Goose and his MOM. (HERE) Goose is nearing the time to cross over the Rainbow Bridge but despite that, he is giving us lessons in learning how to live every single day. Drop by and give him and his MOM a word of support.
Today's quote comes from Swiss philosopher Henri Frederic Amiel:
"To feel keenly the poetry of a morning's roses,
One has to have just escaped from the claws of this vulture which we call illness."
Today I am thankful that I can keenly feel the poetry of the morning's roses. It's a great feeling.
HAVE A MOST WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
