Morning Thoughts

Chico looking out at the morning sunshine.

I am feeling much better. Still not a hundred percent but back to the land of the living for sure. Thank you all so much for writing to me and encouraging me through it. I have a much greater appreciation of life now. Okay, floating away didn't seem so bad either. But I guess I have more living to do. I can never thank my friends enough for their help. They were like a flock of angels arriving at my doorstep and helping me through it all. Especially Leslie. She was with me all the way.....   Ellie came over and cleaned my house. She cooked me delicious food to eat for several days. I have to be careful to never again let myself get so sick that I can't reach out for help. I am going to buy my landlord and his wife some flowers for making that first call. I feel blessed to be living here with them just upstairs. I was too ashamed to ask for help because of four days of diarrhea. But from now on, I will use my lungs to call out to them for help. Again, thank you all for your wonderful e mails. 


  1. I know that others, like myself, are so glad that you're feeling better. You've been blessed with good friends and neighbors. Never be afraid to ask for help! Sending positive thoughts, love and prayers for your continued recovery!

  2. So happy that you are feeling better Pat. It can be very scary being sick and alone. Sounds like you are definitely not alone. 😄
