It was a cloudy overcast day and I walked this morning by myself since my neighbor was babysitting her grandchildren. I set the trip odometer on the car and when coming home this evening I checked out the distance of the streets I walk. It is a good 2 miles. Walked all the streets this morning and it is getting easier. I am always so glad I persevere and do it. When I got back home my sister called to tell me they thought my other sister's husband had had a stroke So I spent the day at the hospital. It wasn't a stroke he had fallen several months ago and apparently it had caused a slow leak of blood in his head and was putting pressure on his brain. They did surgery at 4:00 pm. He is doing well. When I arrived at the hospital I went to the chapel. The quiet and all the symbols reminds me of the life christ gave for us. Someone is always praying before the blessed sacrament and I always feel peace when I go there. Knowing there are people praying everyday ---every hour---seven days a week 24 hours a day . I stopped to talk to God in the chapel saying prayers for my sister and her family. It was late when I got home so I haven't accomplished much of anything else but I know where I was supposed to be.
Gratitudes and positives---------got my morning walk in ---------perseverance in this journey to health.........my brother in law doing well.........for that quiet time with God ............for all those that say prayers for others ...............for all of you who share your day.
