Beyond Grateful


It's a quiet, cozy evening here.  As I sip on one last hot cuppa the sun waves its rays for a final good night before settling down beyond the horizon.  Can you say, peaceful?

There's been a lot on my mind these past few days.  My father has two appointments this week where the doctors will determine the next steps regarding his care/treatment.  One is whether he will undergo yet another major surgery to redirect his bowels again as he's had 4 blockages over the last couple of weeks.  Sigh.

I pulled out my watercolours and quietly painted this evening as I tossed out misc prayers to God above regarding my dad and others.  I won't complain.  For one thing, my father has made it longer than any of us expected.  And today, a big financial blessing came my way that will take me out of the financial hole I've been swimming in due to the unpaid time off previously taken to assist in taking care of multiple things for my dad.  These are just a few of the little miracles that have touched my life these past few weeks.

Thank you to all of my lovely bloggie peeps who have stretched out your arms and love in many different ways, to support me in ways you could have never imagined.  May God return to you double for what you've sprinkled on me.

So, although some days feel like they will never end, I am grateful far beyond I could ever express.
