Mary Ann gets out of the hospital today, and she’ll be home either late tonight or tomorrow morning! Thank you SO MUCH for all your prayers and good thoughts–they made a difference to all of us.

Throughout this very challenging time, the blessings have gone right on flowing. When there was a hard challenge to meet, someone was always there to help. And, of course, I had to reach deeper inside myself to draw on my personal resources; feeding the horses, for instance, has been theraputic. Equine energy is a wonderful thing.

The weather is absolutely beautiful today. My flowers and vegetables are going crazy! We roasted a chicken last night, and it was great fun to use herbs I’d raised myself–oregano, rosemary, thyme and sage.

Today is my last day as a smoker. I’ve got a box of nicotine patches and a good attitude ready for the challenge. Instead of dreading the process, I’m actually looking forward to it–one of the things I’ve learned recently is that life is fluid, and while we can’t change certain situations, we CAN decide how we will see them.

My to-do list is long today, so I’d better be moving on.

More tomorrow.
