Yesterday was a good day. I had a great work out, a fun Nia class, a leisurely hot bath, and quality writing time. I also did some web research on the hormones I’m taking and learned that the number one complaint about them was weight gain, especially in the thighs. I cannot tell you how much better I feel about my tight pants!
The absolute highlight, however, came at just the right moment. I was watching my usual 4:00 hour of television, waiting for the hubster to get home so we could head to the nursery and buy a plum tree to replace the apple in the front yard. Suddenly there was a bright spot in my vision, and I knew I was in trouble. The first trace of impending doom, the awful light show of a migraine. I turned off the lights, closed the blinds, and put the blanket over my eyes, waiting for the pain that I knew was coming, disappointed that my diamond day was taken down a notch, bummed that the afternoon tree-planting would have to be postponed, and irritated that nothing would make my head feel better.
Well, almost. When the hubster arrived, he had a box in his hand. I could not remember ordering anything. Then he told me where it was from: Arizona. Kelli! My friend Kelli sent me a care package. Suddenly my head felt a little better, and I cried at the kindness in the world. In addition to the sweet card, pickled okra, prickly pear jelly, and the adorable zippered bag (all made by Kelli) was a deliciously creamy bar of hazelnut chocolate, but we gobbled it up pronto. I don’t think my headache minded a bit!
How nice it is to have friends, near and far. Thank you for the wonderful treats! I hope you have a diamond day…
