Little weaving chains of words
that sing a deathless song
echoing like clanking swords
that protest against wrong _
A friendly sympathetic grace
to ease a heart that's sore
a place for words _ and time and space
yet silences may roar _
Words left unsaid _ (that should have been)
may wound a tender heart
'tis then we need the magician's pen
or some rare Godlike art _
(It seems like I have been away from blogging for a long time
and I have been. I have been very busy taking care of Jake
since my last post. And, then we went on a 2 week vacation early in October
and left Jake in good hands, or so I thought.
That turned out not to be the case.
We took him in for an appt with his surgeon on Oct 18th and had the most
distressing news. An x-ray revealed Jake had much swelling of his knee
that had the surgery and he had a new fracture.
My job has been to completely restrict his activity and lots of ice-packs.
Another x-ray will be done on Nov 13th, I am praying for healing
as if not another surgery will have to be done.
Also, my dearest Aunt Rose passed away a day after we returned from
vacation, my heart is broken!
She lived to the age of 98 and went peacefully in her sleep.
I am sorry I have not been around to visit any of you lovely Blog friends
but I just cannot manage it at this time, I am completely focused on Jake
and his healing.)
Hoping life is wonderful for all of you.
I do not know when I shall post again.
Please keep Jake in your good thoughts and prayers.
