As some of you already know, this past week has been a difficult one for my husband Lee and me, as well as for our sweet greyhound Harley. Lee has been in the hospital for the last nine days, with a complication of an ongoing condition that has been under control for quite some time.
In between long and sometimes stressful stints at the hospital with Lee, I have managed to spend some time quiet time here at home with Harley who, despite being lonely, has been amazingly mellow throughout all of this. But productive, I have NOT been. And there has been very little time for my usual creative pastime (indeed, my "therapy") of cardmaking.
Nevertheless, because my Blog is also a creative outlet for me, as well as a valued connection to the outside world, I've been trying to continue to post a few entries during the past week. Not surprisingly though, I don't have many words right now to go with my blog entries, so I've been relying upon some of my favorite photos and photo memories, as well as some of my previous card creations and favorite quotes to carry the "messages" of my blog posts of late.
Tomorrow, Lee is scheduled to undergo another diagnostic procedure to help the doctors figure out what's causing this current health issue and to help decide where we need to go from here. Lee and I are both relieved that we now have a plan, and we are thankful to have a group of skilled and knowledgeable physicians involved in his care.
So it is with a hopeful and confident attitude that both Lee and I are approaching the next few days. Hence, the theme of my Blog post today is HOPE . . . . .
Until we meet again. . . . . may all your days be filled with hope.
