Good Morning and welcome to Wednesday in the antipodes. We are a world apart from our northern hemisphere friends who still enjoy Tuesday. The morning has broken quiet and still and with a very overcast sky and I just caught on the radio that rain is to visit us today. Our very thirsty gardens will enjoy that!
The sun is trying to peep through the clouds and that reminds me very much of life and how when the dark clouds beset us there is often just a tiny ray of sunshine that comes through and as the time moves on the whole sky clears and the sun shines once again.
I had a beautiful day yesterday - filled with love, flowers, music and laughter and I know how very much I am blessed. I hope your days are filled with sunshine and love.
My cat is lying fully stretched out in the sun and warmth and I can see a gentle breeze playing with her fur - she has a good life. Eating, sleeping and just being herself. I just wish she would forgive me for leaving her when I was in hospital. We are friends again, but she is very careful not to let me know I am forgiven. Pets can and do bring such joy to our lives and I hope you have the comfort of a pet to give you unconditional love and a warm welcome when you walk through the door.
I have been writing a lot these past days and I wish I could express the joy that it brings to my soul and heart - my writing is the outpouring of a loving and caring heart and the things that touch my life. I used to keep a diary and write in it daily, but haven't done that for a couple of years and I am not sure I will go back to it. I do however keep a diary of dates and appointments and it came clear to me yesterday when I checked in there, that there are lots of empty pages where there have been no appointments and that made me smile. My next Clinic appointment is March 2nd. and that will mean bloods on 27th. February after a three month break. I am feeling well and quite certain all is going well, but I shall be relieved when the blood test results come in. These dates mean I have two weeks before I step back on the treadmill of appointments and clinics. No complaints for me though - I am alive and well and loving my life.
To those of you who are ill or have family members and friends who are undergoing a stay in hospital I send love and care and hopes for better days ahead. If you have a loved one in hospital - call them it will make a difference to their day ~ it will keep them in touch with the world and isolation was the biggest issue for me during my times in hospital ~ I just felt so isolated.
Cards and letters and care packages in the mail always bring joy to people and the cards sent to hospitals are always read and reread and shown to visitors - they are very special and do mean a lot.
I have just written two cards to go to two different hospitals on opposite sides of the world and I have included healing hugs in both of them.
I actually like hospital visiting but it something I can't do very much these days because of my very reduced immune system and something to do with hospitals being "germ factories" but telephone calls are easy to make and much appreciated.
Wishing you a day filled with sunshine, love and happiness and a heart that is calm and rested in spite of the turmoil going on around you. Find joy in the little things and nurture and nourish yourself and your relationships.
Thank you for visiting the Musings of My Heart - a calm and peaceful heart this morning.
Love and hugs,
