She lives alone and recently lost a leg from diabetes complications. This morning he went over to her apartment to help her solve a problem she had been having getting in and out of her wheelchair from her sofa. As he was driving away in the rain, he was saying how he took lessons from her fortitude to keep "kicking it" in spite of her new situation. He said he is finally in a place where he can look for the good side of every situation each and every day instead of letting bad times get him down, and he is so very grateful to have learned this valuable lesson and implement it in his life. Well, I thought that was a really great message to hold onto and to share with you guys. Embroider-worthy, as my friend would say.
Oh, if only I had the time to embroider a pillow sham with "Kickin' It" or "Stay on the Sunny Side". But, alas, I'm still sorting though my piles and piles of photos that still seem endless. Why oh why didn't I take the time to label them as I took them! I know why, but I somehow feel obliged to scold myself once in awhile. Yet, I am finding the Good Side in this challenge....the joy of remembering the good and the bad times.
So, I picked up a pile of pictures this morn and found some really great shots of our trip "out West". Here a few in no particular order. They were all taken in Utah -- some taken by me, some by Lee or the girls.
