Quilt With Us

Today I spent time in my veggie garden, winterizing it actually. I had to cut down the tomato "bushes", they refused to give up the ghost...they still want to grow more tomatoes! I worked slowly because I'm still not back up to speed...the last 2 weeks I've been re-cooperating from pneumonia (and severe asthma attack)...thus my "bump in the road" but let me tell you something... I have not been this happy is a long time. I think I was letting life's mundanes just bog me down. Since I've been in the hospital I feel a change come over me...I'm so happy to be right here and right now. I happy to get a little sewing in, I'm happy to get a little gardening in, I'm delighted to clean the bathroom and straighten my desk. I'm practically beaming in anticipation of planning thanksgiving dinner with my daughter this year. Everyday i look forward to chatting with friends and family. I love my husband, I love my life. Maybe sometimes it just takes a little bump in the road to set your journey upon it back on track.

Boy you hit the nail on the head.

sounds like you had a very worthwhile "bump in the road." I'm thrilled for you! Life is to not be taken for granted and even the little things are worth celebrating!

I'm glad things are looking up for you now. I was laid up with a broken leg a few years ago and it sure gave me a wake up call of how we take life (and limbs) for granted. I too looked at life allot different then I did before the mishap. I'm glad your feeling better. There is nothing like sickness to drag us down and get us discouraged.

Amen. I hit a major bump in fall of 1996 (a long time ago I know). With help and perseverance and good friends I was able to rise above the muck and mire. I had a lesser bump last fall and now am very happy again and love everything. A traffic jam is a chance to sing along with the radio. Bad weather is a chance to be cozy at home. An ache or pain reminds me that I am alive. Good luck with your recovery. Life is good.
