Bright Spot!

Today was a very stressful day. I had to take my 87 year old father in law for a 3 hour physic evaluation. His mind is failing him rapidly & we know it is Alzheimer's I spent a total of 5 LONG hours with him. After dropping him off at his assisted living quarters & going to get his prescriptions I was exhausted mentally & physically. My son suggested we go eat with he & the grandsons. On my drive home I was thinking & dreading the next two days work(12 hour days at that on a Saturday/Sunday). I walked into my kitchen & saw this! Tulips & the sweetest card that said "thought you could use a bright spot in your day today. Love ya Susan Sorry the lighting (it was dark outside& flash washed everything out)was not great when I took these photos & I promise to take another on Monday when the flowers will be more open & there will be better light from the skylight above. These are some spots aren't they? Now, if I used this for coffee WOW that would kick start the day!
And here is the darling card. Aren't girlfriends the best?!?! YES!!!!!! What would we do without our wonderful support system of friends. Thank you Susan you did (& DO) make a bright spot in my day many days! Lesson for all of us: Remember your friends & be that bright spot!

Charlene,

You do sound exhausted, physically & mentally. I'm happy that you came home to those beautiful tulips. Your friend is a sweetheart!

I will say a prayer for your father-in-law, your family and most of all for you. Please take good care of yourself during this difficult time.

xoxo

Hello Charlene,

It sounds like your soul is needing a bit of TLC. Try to take an hour today that is just for yourself. Read, have a cup of tea, glass of wine,go for a walk, pray, blog. You will be much healthier, and happier, and far more able to hold your family together if you respect your needs :)

Thank you so much for dropping by for a visit. Please do come again when you have time
