Book review

I just finished reading the most beautiful, yet sad story and I was compelled to tell my fellow bloggers.

I just finished reading “Worth Fighting For” by Lisa Neimi Swayze and I am not afraid to say this book brought tears to my eyes.

I have always loved Patrick Swayze as an actor no matter what role he played, but reading about his valiant fight and determination to live made me love him as a person too. He fought a good battle and kept his sense of humour and charm about him.

I would give this book all 5 big glowing stars and recommend to anyone and everyone!! I will also be looking to add to my personal collection!!

Late Night Ponderings

As I lay her in our spare room bed with knee supported by pillow and waiting for pain meds to kick in.

I am also engrossed in the previous mentioned book – it is so hard to put down and yet such a sad story/memoir!!

But I will step aside from it to express myself and deliver some sips of gratitude.

1. Waking up to birds singing
2. Beautiful day despite humidity
3. Good books
4. New friends,fans and followers
5. My loving husband and my dog Shadow
6. Family and friends

And now I leave you with my favourite quote from one of my favourite plays

“Good-by, Good-by, world. Good-by, Grover’s Corners… Mama and Papa. Good-by to clocks ticking… and Mama’s sunflowers. And food and coffee. And new-ironed dresses and hot baths…and sleeping and waking up. Oh, earth, you’re too wonderful for anybody to realize you.”
― Thornton Wilder, Our Town

Along The Way

I stepped out early today before
my apt for physiotherapy to see what
Mother Nature holds for me.

It is 31 degrees celsius with humidity, but
there is a nice cool wind that dials
down humidity. It is a beautiful day outside!

Along my travels on our public transportation
in this town, I am immersed with
conversations from all angels. A lot to take in which Is why I usually try to drown out with music. But, today I decided to embrace the sounds around me!
