It's the Little Things

Its the little things in life that make you appreciate the big picture. When you have lived with someone for over 53 years and you see them slowly return to their normal self it is a great joy. Even though it is baby steps we are seeing a big improvement each day.

When you can take a day off and go off stitching for the day it makes you appreciate the little things. Dad didn't want me to go off driving to Ontario by myself but I figured if I could drive from Salt Lake home I could drive the hour and a half to Ontario.

When you look at pictures from long ago it makes you appreciate the values that your parents taught you. You look at the pictures and remember how they endured to the end. It's the little things in life that make you appreciate all that you have been given.

I DID IT!!!!

I wasn't sure I could make the drive from Salt Lake to CA with doing all the driving but we arrived safe and sound today. Dad did really well traveling but he sure was tired when we got home. He sat in his recliner and went sound asleep while I hauled everything in from the car. I had to go to the car wash as soon as I got everything unloaded as it was covered with salt and grime from all the snow we had in Salt Lake. It is nice to be back where it is a little warmer. Now all I have to do is put everything away, do laundry and take down all the Christmas ornaments. There never is a dull moment but it is nice to be home. It is nice to have the surgery behind us and now it will just take time to finish recovering.
