Loving love -- the joy of resilience

True love means springtime in any weather

Yesterday as my kids would say I "literally" tripped over my
cat, and fell in my own kitchen -- crunch on my own left
wrist.  Good news -- I'm right handed.  Bad news -- the wrist
is broken.

But let's go for good news instead.  My husband was out of town 
on a work trip, and my son drove me to the emergency ward.
In a few hours I saw a doctor, had an X-ray and found out that my
wrist was badly injured in that fall.  I will go back to the fracture 
clinic at the hospital next week and get a second cast.  And my
American friends all of that was, and will be free! Health Care in

Plus on the positive side my husband came home and helped me with
all the things a one-handed person can't do.  And we were so happy to
see each other after a week apart, that we are still happy even with 
quite a lot to figure out for this artist and teacher.  We'll do it.  Thanks
for the support.

It is the monthaversary of our first date, which we acknowledge every
month -- so I give you this yellow bird of love to celebrate.

Have a looking on the plus side day!

Thank you for this lovely positive blog post in the midst of it. Love the bird + heart image.

Thank you so much Verna. It Isn't a picnic, but it will be okay. And it is good that my wonderful husband
is home!

Well, darn. I'm sorry you're hurt!
Somehow you even make a broken wrist a bright and celebratory thing. How do you do that?
Hope you mend quickly, my friend!

Thank you Susan. I do have a wonderful person in my life, and I have people like
you! That makes me pretty happy most of the time. I hope so too.
