I woke this morning to a glorious
From the windows of my hospital ward
I took a couple of, I think, unusual photos but wasn't able to download them
From my iPad
I look forward to showing them after I return home!
From here I can see the queues of panicking shoppers trying to get everything done before
The Big Day!
Cars queuing in
And cars queuing out.........
It seems so strange to be sitting , as it were, as an onlooker
Seeing but not a part of it all!
Down there there are battles being fought for parking spaces...
Getting the last minute presents
Up here .... In my ward .....there is a battle for life being played out .....
Not mine but another dear old lady!
Reaching for each new breath...............
And surrounded by her family
Puts things in perspective
At home are all the half done 'things'
That I had been planning to accomplish this week.......
There's no point in my fretting
They say I'll be in here quite a while longer
So I just have to let it all go
As a friend emailed me
" at least you have to rest now!"
So...thanks for all your caring thoughts and prayers
I so appreciate each one
And please....please in this Season of Joy
Think of those who are suffering
And say a prayer for Barbara
As she walks .........
