Isn't it just the simple things that sometimes will take you away from all the problems of life and thrill you to the core? I'm talking about listening to a song, or smelling a delicious aroma, or just feeling the arms of your loved one around you. This weekend for me it was just knowing that Chris was home, and I was not alone. Things are improving, and he is on the road to a quick recovery. We need to review our menu and add more vegetable and fruits to our diet. Goodbye fried foods...you are killing us.
When Chris was in the hospital, I took Sammy many walks through the neighborhood and along the park perimeter. To feel the warm Sun embrace my face and the scent of the woods besides the Rec Center really made me feel alive. I spent the evenings before work chatting with Chris in the hospital and then beading. I worked on this necklace after one of my & Sammy's walks through the woods. The filtered Sunlight gave the greens and browns a luscious color palette that I tried to copy. Each day I also checked on our small garden. The tomatoes are starting to grow, and my squash plants have blossoms.
Sammy was such a comfort for me each evening. He would strut and constantly be aware. He was a good boy too when I left him every night. One night I thought I would leave the television on so he wouldn't be so lonely, but decided to just let be. Each morning the sweet boy would be waiting for me at the bottom of the steps for his morning walk. I'm so lucky to have him. Still can't believe it hasn't even been 2 months.
Thing are coming back to normal with Chris home. Even though I awoke to rain beating on the roof, I was just so happy to listen to both of my boys calmly sleeping.
