Hello to all you special people that visit my blog!
I will be taking a break from blogging.
I saw my Dr. yesterday and was diagnosed with tendonitis.
It is very painful and I have it in both arms.
I'm wearing braces and taking an anti-inflammatory medication.
Dr's orders include staying off the computer for a few weeks.

So no blogging or visting anyone for a while.
I'll so miss all of you wonderful people as visting you is a bright spot in my day!
But I must get this tendonitis under control!
I do not want to have to do PT as I am now doing on my knee.

So, till we meet again, I send you all wishes for love, peace & joy!
Oh, I'll try my very best to visit your blogs today ... one last time before I go.

I so hope I can get back here before too long.
I shall miss you all!

Talk not of gratitude
Nor think you owe me gold
A flower perhaps or a song
But the debt incurred is old.

Old as you and older
For, child, before your birth
When I felt the quicken in me
I portook of sky and earth!

Your birth was a storm that passed
You a plant that grew
I was rain and sun and soil
I was God and earth to you!

I was summer and winter and autumn
I knew fear and joy and peace
Forever I will be your debtor
Let talk of gratitude cease.

Go forth, my child, unfettered
I am your mother but now also your friend
Wishing you well forever
But owing you till the end!

What can wealth give that I have not?
The air I breathe, the heavens blue
The sunshine bright, the stars at night
Three meals a day and health anew
Loyal friends and neighbors true
The joy to live, to work, to roam
A place to rest and call it home
What need I more that wealth can give
When life is love and love is to live!
