Prayers Welcome - 7 o'clock Monday
We just received Keith's surgery time. If everything is on schedule - it's 7 o'clock Monday morning, March 26. We're 'Hanging In There'.
My friend, Anne, dropped this ceramic frog off last week with the kitty card. She explained that the frog is a 'hang in there' frog. (Do click on the picture) The tenacious frog is meant to cheer up my own dearest who now faces his round of gender-specific surgery. I found the perfect perch for his frogginess - a tulip - harbinger of Spring and renewal - of hope. Life is good when you've got friends who give a 'frog's behind' about your welfare. I love the way he's peering cautiously at the patient kitty. There's a lesson there, too. Patience. Things will sort out in their own time.
Keith's surgery is March 26th. We'll probably be in Detroit for just two overnights. That's barring any complications.
Spring arrives tomorrow. Ahhhhhh. It won't look like it weather-wise, but that's OK. It makes it easier to stay indoors and get things done. I've got a lot of winter detritus to set right.
So, dear blogging friends, I'll be checking in on you quite often to fill some anxious hours. I may not post for quite a while or I may post as the mood or need arises. For your kind thoughts and warm wishes, I thank you from my heart.
Happy Spring! Bring on your posts with the pictures of buds and blooms and Spring air laced with birdsong as life celebrates itself again outside your windows. I'll be sighing contentedly.
