Blue Skies At Last






oh so many shades of blue ~ all on the very same day
opening my heart to gratitude for sunshine
my parents visiting this week
all their support
and love

Thankful too for my dear friend Jan Lundy and her wonderful interview that so many enjoyed this week. What a treat to have Jan's presence plus several new visitors and old friends stop by here at Shine the Divine. Congratulations to Angela Ricada, winner of the Mindful Make-Over Kit! Jan will be in touch with you soon to tell you how to download your fabulous prize!!!!

Life continues to be very full and busy here at the Gnome Mound. Tomorrow (Friday) I will go visit my neurologist to discuss other treatment options now that the Tysabri is finally out of my system. I'm not nearly as nervous about this as I was a few months ago. We will try something. If it helps and doesn't have uncomfortable side effects great! If it doesn't, we'll try something else. Life is too short and beautiful to worry about this. I have MS, this is part of the truth of who I am now. There are many blessings that have come to light that I would likely not have realized had I not become so ill. Breath by breath, moment by moment, step by gentle step, or wheel by wheel...it will be ok. It is ok. I trust this to be so.

To view many other shades of blue and a rainbow of sky colors around the world drop by:

  8. Enjoy your blue skies and having your folks there. Blessings as you and your doctors work together.

    We are blessed with eyes to see- but it is in the heart that true seeing resides.
