Welcome to Saturday evening at the end of a couple of busy days where the weather has been strange - four seasons in one day virtually and rain and more rain.
Yesterday was my Dermatology appointment at Flinders and I am pleased to report that all is well apart from one little brown spot on my right ear which they froze off and all seems fine now. It was good to catch up with the department and very nice to be remembered. My episode with Stevens Johnson Syndrome has certainly left an impression on the Flinders Staff - even if they don't know me - many of them know of me. I am a one in a million girl and I would have liked to have that accolade for something other than SJS.
It was a late afternoon appointment and they were running late so it was getting towards end of day when we got home - but all is well.
Sad news this morning with a phone call from a friend advising that her elderly father had died in the early morning hours of Saturday and naturally she is very sad. She has gone and made her way to the country town where he lived to be with her sister and brother in law and my love, care and thoughts go with her.
They are difficult days and often go by in a blur but there is always the love of friends and family to buoy us through.
Friends are travelling by plane right now - travelling home after a lovely and very interesting holiday and I wish them Bon Voyage and safe travels - and of course Happy Trails.
It is important that we do all we can to comfort our friends in their grief and we can only do it in our own style and way and it is very true that the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those who sing best.
Sing your song and be a caring and supportive friend - let your song be heard loud and strong. Be present to each moment as it is really all we have - enjoy each day and don't leave words unspoken or deeds left undone.
Thank you for visiting the Musings of My Heart - a sad heart today and one reaching out to my friend.
Love and hugs,
