Never Promised A Rose Garden

But what I got is a beautiful garden just the same.

I have been sick with the cold/flu for the past week ,and haven’t ventured out of my house, other than to take my daughter, Shantel, to school. Usually I manage to “solider” through a cold/flu, but this time, I was all but down for the count so to speak… With Shantel in school, and my husband, Bill aka, Bro, at work all day, I was on my own to fend for myself…no one was here to make me hot chicken soup, bring me my medications…, like I did for Shantel, who must have passed this horrid cold/flu on to me as I was taking care of her all last week…Isn’t that just the way it seems to go for mothers…? We take care of everyone, then, when we get sick…no one is around to take care of us… good thing by now we learn how to be self-reliant..:)

But, the silver lining for me this week, as I spent a miserable week inside my house trying to recover from the brink of death… or so I thought anyway, was when I found the strength to walk/pace to my front window ,and look out at the world waiting for me to recover…this is what I saw that brightened my day:)

The best part of having this beautiful, flowering, garden just outside my front door is they are all really, really, hardy desert plants that I couldn’t kill if I tried…:)

I’m on the mend now. I guess it’s true that what doesn’t kill us will make us stronger… so I’m just very thankful if I had to suffer such a dreadful illness…it happened now, instead of next week, because I have BIG, BIG, REALLY BIG, PLANS to take care of for Christmas  Eve with all our kids/grandkids from Colorado coming home for Christmas. I’ve got lots of Step-mom/Grandma things to finish doing so everything is just right for Christmas Eve…and, I can’t hardly wait!

Stay Tuned!
