When it Rains it Pours……

wind chimes

It is said when it rains it pours! I guess it is true that sometimes into our life can come challenge after challenge!

Saturday night my daughter went to the ER and had to have surgery yesterday.  She will be fine, but for all of us this is ….enough already!

I am grateful that she is already out of the hospital after having her procedure and am confident that she will be good as new soon. I am grateful to the Dr at Hendricks Regional who took such great care of her and is following up with the necessary testing to try to end these problems once and for all!  I am grateful to all the people who work at this facility, for they are the ones who go above and beyond to take care of others and not just the patients, but the families too, making sure we are informed and up to date on all things happening. I appreciate that!

With my brother passing 10 days ago and this, we are all exhausted! And my daughter feels guilty because she didn’t think of her Uncle while she was in hospital! Poor girl! Of course she shouldn’t; but I understand.

It is fantastic to know she is home and resting.

When I got home from the hospital today I found the wind chimes in the above picture hanging on my porch! Wow, I was so amazed by them! I volunteer for the Human Resource Department at the same hospital where my daughter was an patient, a sympathy card said the chimes were from them. These have got to be some of the sweetest women I have ever had the privilege to worked with! It was above and beyond for them to think of me and send these wind chimes! I am grateful to know such outstanding people!

And this simple fact was not lost on me- the chimes have scripture etched in them! I am grateful to volunteer somewhere that has no problem sending me scripture to help ease grief! That is perfect!

So to surmise…I am grateful!  What a beautiful day! ❤

Seeking The GOOD!


“Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.” 1 Corinthians 10:24

Today I am going to seek the good in others. As I go through my day I will look for good in every situation. This is something I try to do everyday, but today I am making it my purpose.

When I woke up this morning I picked up a book to start my day with some inspiration, the page I opened to was the quote below by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Then I did a Google search for “seeking Good” and found the scripture quoted above.  I guess God gave me the words and now it is up to me to act on what He said.   So here I go…….

“If we shall take the good that we find, asking no questions, we shall have heaping measure” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
