It's been a while, I know. Busy times as always.
week has been a wonderful week so far. Got to spend a lot of time with
friends and family. Shared good food and listened to their stories over
the weekend. Lots of good food, if we're being honest! OMG... I could never party like this when I was in the States. I love Uncle Sam but being able to throw a banquet for 60 people for $500 cannot be beat!!!
I really enjoyed seeing my loved ones and being able to spend time with them. Lots and lots of quality time.
We always think they'll be there forever. But we won't have
them forever. Today, we visited our sick relatives and those who
cannot make it to the party yesterday. I feel lucky and blessed to have
good health and that it is we who are visiting
and not the other way around. Thankful to have a huge and wonderful
extended family. We all pulled together for those in need and it seeing
the result today is priceless. Instead of gifts, we passed a
gift-wrapped basket around for our needy and very sick relative. And
everyone answered. It's been a humbling but very happy experience all
So now I am home, tired from the long drive to 3 houses with 3 separate
patients in various stages of illness. Always make time for those you
love. Talk with them and share many memories before it's too late. It's
gonna be one of those weeks for me. A week with family and friends. With
both ends of the spectrum both sad and happy. Mostly happy. And very
thankful to have this time to spend with them. Good Night!
