Grace Unfolding

Today, from
Sometimes I go about pitying myself,
 and all the time I am being carried on great winds across the sky.
Wednesday I was well enough to host my quilting group as I have for the past 15 years.  I did not realize how much I had missed them...and the laughter and the friendship.
 Asthma is the pits!
They basted this scrap top for step in a right sewing direction

Today, the sun came out after a week...Carolina blue skies... A very good thing!
Today, I am well..You were right Katie...10 days it took.  Another very good thing!.
I thought for special me, that it would only take 5 days to get better and not the 10 like other mortals.
Grey is a shade, what is grim?
The sad and scary note, is that my dearly beloved is entering into Stage 3 of ALS.
Stages of ALS
He has been sleeping in his hospital bed for four days.  Great fatigue and sleepiness.
At first we thought it was because he kept asking for his Ativan to be doubled so he would not have anxiety...Believe me, I would be all for that!!!.
 But, the Hospice nurse said this morning that he was still on quite a low dosage.
She feels that his body is just tiring out.
Accepting life on its own terms instead of what I want it to be... is my struggle.
Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
For your emails, your comments, your gifts of love.
Without you, I would be quite unable to see the light.
