Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

The Morning After

Things didn't exactly go according to plan...


No laparoscopy...full-on open surgery.
He now has a scar under his right rib, that looks a lot like this:


However...it is over and now we implement the healing plan.

Lots of rest...


heathly, healing, nourishing food...





gentle exercise...


lots of TLC...


and I will have him home and back on his feet in no time.

  8. Oh, my goodness. But then Samurai and Surgeon both begin with "S" — there must be a link. Jacqueline, I'm sure YOU will have things entirely in order when he gets back home, and thus facilitate his recovery.

    Blessings and Bear hugs to both of you.
