Miracle Monday

After a relaxing evening watching the Oscars, and a comparatively long sleep until 4:45 am, I awoke to barking and silently recited my survival mantra of "one more night." It sort of felt good and after the doggies were settled down for the morning, my trusty car was taking me home to see Ms G and get ready for work. Shortly after I got to the office, I learned that my boss and his wife would be home from Paris today and not tomorrow! I could feel my spirit soar and the rest of the day was great.
In other good news, Dad is fairly stable. He is still very weak and it will take some time for him to recover from the pneumonia. Dear Trish is already making arrangements for Dad to go to the nursing facility were he was several years ago and was very happy with the care. Dad even showed some sense of humor today when Trish visited. I so much want to be there but I am very tired and know I cannot push myself. It is such a long drive.

Now we need a miracle Tuesday, as it is the day of LM's meeting with the attorney regarding Bob's will. The relatives will be notified of the wishes in the will within a few days.....this is a tense time and I know LM is very concerned. We do not want to have to deal with any negativity/contesting, etc, regarding Bob's choice of leaving the house, contents, car and a considerable amount of money to LM. It could also create an uneasy situation at the memorial service on Saturday. We would much rather just have Bob back and not deal with any of this but that is not to be. LM has been using this interim to get himself back on track. He resumes teaching tonight, and today he began the process of having his own fishing related radio show. Healing begins, life goes on.

This day ended with a most brilliant sunset that lit my way home, all the electric/telephone wires along the road were glowing beautifully and the front of my house, right into the living room turned pink for about 10 minutes. I think the universe was very glad I was on my way home to stay for awhile. I know Ms. G is.

Tonight I am zoning out by watching some Tales of the City DVD's.

My wishes are that Bob's family will honor the will. That always should be done. There was heartache in my life regarding my mother's wishes when she passed away before my stepfather. So I understand.

So glad to hear your Dad is doing better. Keeping my fingers crossed that LM's meeting with the lawyer goes well. (I have told my children that I will come back and haunt them if they ever fight over anything after I pass!)

Glad to hear that your dad is better and I hope it all goes ok tomorrow for LM.

Go in there with heads held high. They weren't there doing the work. Good that L is getting back to his teaching.
