Aahhh.....


I am breathing a collective sigh of relief. You know I have had a bumpy week. Started with my girly getting her wisdom teeth removed rather unexpectedly and then some complications that made the week worrisome and stressful and needing another visit to the oral surgeon. The week ended today with the memorial for my sister in law's daughter who passed away at the end of December. I was dreading it as most do when you know you have to go to something sad. Sad but necessary. My brother needed family there and my sister in law needed support. Her daughter was 48 and left behind six kids two of which are not even 18 yet. But you know, it was a very nice celebration of her life and we all shared a lot of good food and spent time as families do in these situations. As we drove away I just felt such a release of the whole week and am so glad to be home with my jammies watching my little one play in the bath tub.

Tomorrow starts a new week and we have been invited by my inlaws to go out to breakfast so I am really looking forward to a fresh new seven days of girls coming and going, hubby's laundry needing washing and meals to prepare. Thank goodness for the slow uneventful days. They are the best in my book. Now I can breath and oh,  my daughter with the wisdom teeth, she is on the mend and went back to work tonight. I give it to her though, she could not miss clinicals at the hospital this week and went two days for 12 hours in lots of pain. She only had to miss for a visit back to the doctor. She is strong. My sister in law is strong. God bless strong women!!

Strong women are the backbone of this country. I remember going to a nursing clinical just as sick as I could be, but you must go those professors are relentless.

I am sorry it was a bad week. Is it not something we appreciate the hum drum of the normal week. We got it right, we enjoy the simple things.

So glad you were able to get through your rough week okay and that your daughter is doing better. It is definitely the simple everyday things in life that keep us grounded and moving forward. I hope you have a better week ahead.
