I finally uploaded these two pictures of flowers Skipp bought me for our birthday and anniversary. Lovely, aren't they? Also, in the photo to the left is one of our favorite wine glasses - deep blue with gold moons and stars. We had a lovely week together - long rides, barbecue, wine and fun food, playing music and singing, movies, slept late and had our coffee out on the deck watching and enjoying nature's bounty. It was a very special, simple, loving time.
And so Autumn approaches - the colors are golden yellow with splashes of red and brown. The mornings are crisp and the evenings chilly. And the colors in our home - shadows of dark greens and yellows and borders of slate and deep purple dance around in the morning and early evening light. It is wondrous. I too have danced around some - as you all know I struggled with my wanting to set the stage for my daughter's love language - and felt quite righteous in doing so. The out pouring of love and support I received from all of you, my amazing friends in blog land, touched me so deeply and helped move me to a peaceful place, once again. And I thank each and every one of you. Once I let go of "my way" and embraced "their way" all doors opened - heart soared - voices sung - love was spoken - shown - felt - heard - understood - I know I stirred the emotional pot, maybe that is good every now and then - but for now, and a long time to come, I am not going to stir anything, - rather, I am going to simmer and rest in the love we share - receive it as it is offered - and give as I always have. It was time for a change, better said, a time for me to change. And I have - and so many of you helped me. Again, "thank you"
Love to you all
p.s. I have been a bit 'under-the-weather' since my neurologist appointment on Tuesday. I have not been able to comment and read all your wonderful blogs as much as I would like. I had a harrowing experience at my appointment - I was quite traumatized by it actually. I had a frightening spike in my blood pressure while there. The neurologist got very concerned and thus, so did I!! I went to my PCP right from there. He is so calming. My numbers lowered considerably by the time I got there. He is adding another medication to control the "spikes", which can happen with M S patients due to some type of false signal. Good Lord. So I am taking it easy, doing my exercises, walking outside, resting a lot and drinking lots of water as I adjust to the medicine for two weeks and then see how it is working and if I am tolerating it okay. Again, "thank you" all for your kind understanding. Oh, we did get the disability documents organized. phew.
