This week I'm Thankful for:
Yep - I had it last week too but mom's in a new place now & the nurses at the rehab center have been really honest & helpful in taking care of her. The nurse that has been working with mom told me that she came from another place where she had to leave & take some time when at the facility, they lost 48 people in a weekend due to COVID. 48 PEOPLE.... IN A WEEKEND!!! Geez. But she said she saw a 92 year old woman come out of the COVID unit & she said she high fived her & told her "You kicked COVID's butt". She said she has to cling to those stories to get her through all the losses she's seeing. I cant even imagine.
Day off Work
I still love that my job has off Martin Luther King Day. It's always nice to get a day to recover after the crazy of December.
Walk in January
There was a day recently that was in the 50's. It felt wonderful!!!! I was able to get out & do a walk at lunch & it just filled my spirit up to be out in fresh air & feel the sunshine on my face & get my lungs working.
Whew... I was holding my breath all day long to make sure it was safe. I thought it was wonderfully done with all the precautions with COVID. The celebration at night "Celebrating America" was just really nice & that young poet? Just incredible. She's going to be something to watch as she grows up. & I always love to see the former Presidents get together. I just love George W Bush - when he gets together with Michelle Obama, it just makes me smile.
Hubby has been working with Ozzie to teach him to lay... which he has down to a pat. So I have been working on the "high five" action. It took about 2 days - now, he gives them ALL the time. Even when you dont want him to. Its just the cutest thing. I'm impressed how fast he picks things up.
I got the sweetest cards from my friend Chris & Kelly. I think fun mail just makes a day so much better - knowing that someone takes the time to send you hugs through an envelope. I feel them every time I get one.
I have an aunt that had to be rushed into open heart surgery this past week. The town she lives in didnt even have a cardiologist that could do what she needed so she had to be transferred to another hospital another town over. They were able to get her there & get the surgery done & she was home the next day! Isnt that amazing? The things they can do to a body! Medicine & science is amazing.
Tell me something good about your week!
