Revolting turn of events

Still waters.
From Untitled Album

Not a lot of this in my life right now. I am missing it.
This is the path I want to walk down.
Every day.
From Untitled Album

But you know, life sometimes has other plans for me.

This week, another unexpected twist............what a revolting turn of events.
My husband ended up in the hospital again...........from 1 a.m. arrival in the ER, to another surgical experience the next day at 4:30 p.m.
Here we were thinking that life was going to calm down after last week. Instead, I feel like we are simulating the Groundhog Day movie, repeating things.
Sometimes, no matter how crazy life gets, you have to keep your serenity some place safe.

A precious resource.
From Untitled Album

Tonight, sitting at his bedside, talking hopefully about a possible discharge tomorrow, I realized that regardless of the place, or the situation, being there for him when he needs me is its own reward.
After all, he is my best friend.

Hoping today is a better day for both of you, and you find yourself sitting on the porch, thankful it's over and you can walk those paths again.
