****Life, My Contest, And Other Bits****


Blog Posted:3/10/2018 3:14:00 PM

For all who have remembered us while my husband is recouperating from his second total hip replacement I want to say thank you!!!

He is healing but it seems to be going at a snail's pace to him but he is doing well for this stage of the recovery process. He is getting his strength back by degrees and is doing more for himself which is letting some of the pressure off of me. God works miracles in our lives if we slow down to notice what He is doing. . Having friends that pray seems is a miracle in this day and age in which we live and I do thank you for prayers. Image result for pictures of a sick person healing at a snails pace

I want to thank those that have entered my contest. I have had some nice entries which are right on target. If you haven't entered, please look at the contest and write a poem about a scent from childhood if smelled today brings back a powerful, wonderful memory. Only English Quintains accepted with only 2 or 3 stanzas please.

Spring is trying to appear here in Georgia but winter keeps coming back to cool spring off. I noticed how some other states have had some snow and storms that have not been anywhere close to the end of winter. I know we are all looking forward to spring being in the air. I hope that spring comes and stays around for a long time with pleasant temperatures for us to enjoy.

May God richly bless each of you in your writing endeavors with many lovely poems penned each day.

Hip fixes are awesome miracles these days (done 2, too). Prayers lifted for easy-paced recovery. Respect the process and before he knows it, he (& u) will be on normal footing again. A cane for a time can’t hurt. :-)))

Wayne, is now using the cane to get about in the house. He is slowly but surely getting better. He gets on his hover round to go up to the shop where he plans all he is going to do when he gets well. He is getting antsy to get out in the garden but I expect we are going to have to have just some raised beds planted with easy to plant and gather plants this time. Thanks for dropping by with encouragement. Wonderful that you did well and are back like you once were. Sara

Sara, happy to hear your husband is getting better, yes, sometimes the progress is slow but the important thing is that there is progress. Your contest is really nice, and I enjoyed writing for it very much no matter the end result. The weather in my part of Canada is the same as you are getting, I am ready for Spring. Writing is everything to me, it is like breathing . .

Tom, I heard that you in the UK got some snow in the last week or two. Did it snow in your area? Rain again here this morning but warmer than yesterday morning but the cold is suppose to come back on Tuesday night. Sara

Craig, My husband chose not to go to PT this time. He said he could not afford it. He claims he is doing the exercises himself and he is doing some but I don't think he is doing what he is suppose to do. He is progressing though slowly. Sara
