Rewards of Life

Life offers us little rewards and we should take them as they come.

My mom had a light stroke in late April and has been recovering slowly. She has had several doctors appointments as a result. Last week she had 3 appointments, Monday, Tuesday and Friday. The end result is everything is fine. Keep taking her meds, do your therapy and go on with your life.

The appointments are usually scheduled for 10:30 or 11:45 or 2:30, right in the middle of the day. This means I need to leave my house 30-45 minutes before her appointment to drive to her house, be sure she is ready and then drive to the doctors office so we can sit and wait for an hour before they call her name and place her in a room. Then its another 15 or more minutes til the doctor actually sees her. Most of the time spent with the doctor is about 10 minutes if we are lucky. Then we pay and are on our way home.

My mom knows all this interrupts my day and things I want and need to do. While we were driving to an appointment she apologized for having to disrupt my schedule. I just looked at her and said "At least I still have you here to take to the doctor. That beats not having you here."

Yup! It's the little things in life that are the biggest rewards.

I'm off to Rockport, Texas for a couple of days to spend some time with 8 of my good miniature buddettes at the Retreat House. Just us ladies talking and working on projects and catching up while we can. None of us are getting any younger, however, we all grab life by the tail and go along for the ride. I hope you will, too.

Love to all of you, dear friends.
