Just a Small Bump in the Highway of Life

Gee, time does fly doesn't it? Gathering Days are still the highlight of my week; the days I have individual play time with the grandsons are wonderful fun; our reefs are past all the real work and are in cruising mode; the landscaper finally completed the borders along the sides and front of our house; all our children are doing well and enjoying their lives - what more can anyone ask for. Harry and I are two lucky old farts.

We truly are living a blessed life. But even among the blessings there are issues that have to be dealt with. Those things promise to take most of my time and energy for the next two or three weeks. Yes, I'm in the process of having a health problem evaluated and plans made to deal with it. One of my symptoms is being completely washed-out tired. Some days it's just too much effort to move from room to room. Other days I feel almost normal. I have an excellent medical team. I'm in good spirits and not depressed.

In order to use the little energy that I have to my best advantage I'm taking a break from this blog. I'll continue to read and probably comment from time to time. Also, when I have a firm diagnosis I will post here. I'll remember each of my blog friends and picture you having a wonderful summer with friends and family. Hey, take dream vacations and post about them so I can enjoy with you.

My best to everyone
Mary Ruth

So sorry to hear you are not in the best of health. Hope all will be well with you soon!! I will pray each day for you.
I think of James every time I see a sunflower. I hope his are growing big and tall.
I miss having them this year. Maybe next year I'll grow them in a pot on the deck. :-)
