Gratitude Day 2

You are like a songbird with a melody so sweet.

You put a spring in every step of each new bird you meet.

Dear CJ,

I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for me when I got back from the hospital!  I was certainly blessed that you became my VNA Nurse!

I appreciated your infinite patience, wisdom and knowledge as you helped me on my healing journey after my surgery.  I can’t thank you enough for helping me everyday as I tried to get back on my feet.

You went above and beyond the call of a Nurse in my life and I can’t thank you enough for all that you did.

Thank you for being you ~ and for all that you did for me!



CJ was my nurse when I got home from the hospital and we met on Mother’s Day when she came to my house for the first time.  The nurse who was assigned to my case had called out sick and CJ came instead…and yet another blessing was bestowed on me because she was the perfect nurse for me.  Our first visit included me fainting on her and having all sorts of complications which made the original 1 hour visit last for 3 1/2 hours and yet CJ never acted as though it was an aggravation ~ she just went with the flow, determined to help me get through the day.

The next day the original nurse was back to work, but instead, CJ who already knew me pretty well by then, kept my case and arrived again cheerily to my home.  I really looked forward to seeing her everyday as she was a breath of sunshine ~ always upbeat, always patient and kind and always comforting.  When you feel so awful that you just don’t care anymore, a positive angel is just what you need in your life.

So thank you to CJ for being YOU ~ and for being my Day 2!


Thanks Mom…

Mother’s Day is around the corner…for many of us, it’s happy day as it’s OUR DAY because we are Mothers…there are those who are not Moms, but have Moms who are living and that makes it special as well…then there are those whose Moms have passed away and for them it’s a bittersweet day…

My friend JAngel recently had her Grandmother and her Mom pass away within months of each other and I find it so sad to think of how this coming holiday will be for her and her lovely family.  As a wonderful Mom herself, I know her family will pay special attention to her and honor her on Mother’s Day…and for that, I am grateful.

I am grateful that my Mom and I had lunch recently and I love how our relationship has evolved over the years.  We’ve all seen the comics of how daughters grow up and grow apart from their Moms and then realize that Mom knew what she was talking about ~ what an amazing journey Mothers and Daughters travel.  I know I am very blessed to enjoy my Mom’s wisdom and company every day and I can’t wait to honor her on her special day!

Moms come in all different forms and they don’t necessarily have to be your own biological Mom to be honored on Mother’s Day!  Many of us are blessed with women who seem to just be so very nurturing that the bond that you have with them is as strong as any Mom’s could be.  Hopefully during your life, you’ve been blessed with a special woman (or even women!)  in your life who love you with all of her heart…

I know it’s early to talk about Mother’s Day, but I don’t want you to forget to thank your Mom, take a moment and be grateful for her patience and love and if you can, give her a heartfelt hug ~ she deserves it!

My gift to you is a card to your Mom for free…no pressure, just spreading love.
