Ups and Downs

It has been a long day, good and difficult, I am grateful for all.  My younger brother Ricky, Jordan's grandad who lives next door, had a heart attack this morning.  The artery at the back of the heart, 95% blocked, but tonight he is doing good.  He is in ICU, a stent was put in.  Tomorrow there will be tests to determine if there was any damage, prayers, thoughts, healing energy, love and what ever else you got will be appreciated.

My older sister Pat celebrated her 77th birthday today.  We went down to her house for birthday cake and time with her family.  We got our picture made with our great, great niece.   I love the picture I am sharing tonight,  Good times and celebrations are important and we should try to keep them a part of our lives even in these scary times. 

We can't let fear take away our humanity.  We can't let isolation bring loneliness and despair.
We can't let greed destroy our kindness and rob us of our joy.  Call your family, friends and neighbors, text each other.  Don't let these times destroy gratitude, joy and finding the beauty around you.  Spend some time in your back yard, if you are off from work, don't dwell on the darkness, do your hobby, read a book, do a home project, plant some flowers.  Look up at the sky, listen to the birds, slow down for a moment, take care, stay calm.  This too shall pass. 


  1. What a sweet picture!
    Speedy recovery to your brother!

  2. Giving thanks that your brother is ok and can get a stent today. I do agree we have to enjoy the present and not let worry take our joy away. Every day is a gift to be enjoyed!

  3. We need to connnect with others, isolation isn't great but at times needed
