***I added a NEW FOLLOWER button (see the right side bar below the music player)– if you get a minute I would love you to follow me, and leave me a comment so I can do the same for you! ***
Are you a blogger like me?
I started down this DipityRoad thinking it would be a creative outlet for me to share the beauty I found around me. I came across so many other talented bloggers who inspired me but mainly touched my heart. (Hence the Bleeding HEART photo — 🙂
Sherry (from Country Wings In Phoenix) was one that from the very beginning took the time out of her busy day to be one of my best cheerleaders and came to be a very cherished friend. She has a lovely blog that inspires and has such a lovely gaggle of friends!
Around Mother’s day she told us all she had a bit of health issue– then POOF! Typically she blogged often, if not daily at least 3 times a week… not a word. I really missed her and was very worried, called her and emailed her — no word…
FINALLY — yesterday I got a welcomed email. She gave me permission to update all her friends with parts of her email.
Just a very quick note. I have been in the hospital for 8 long days.
I just got out late this evening. I wanted to drop you a quick line
and let you know I am home. I was admitted a week ago Monday,
they told me if I had waited one more day I would have been on the
respirator. My pneumonia got better, however I still have bronchitis
which triggered a very bad problem with my asthma and my lungs
have not been well. I am bruised, exhausted and so very weak.
You can update me on your blog if you like.
My lungs are weak right now. It will take me
awhile to bounce back. They have given me so
many steroids that I am bruising horribly. I did not
realize today how bad it really has been. I am exhausted
to just walk the hall to the bedroom and back. Family
is taking excellent care of me. Don’t know what I would
do without my sweet Heidi Girl and of course DH. They are
I so want to blog, but I just do not have the extra energy
right now. It is taking everything I have just to breathe.
I am taking breathing treatments every 1-2 hours and many
assorted meds to get back on track. I will be seeing the specialist
next week to update
So… for my Friday Finding Beauty entry — I’m finding beauty in knowing that a REAL friend (while I may have never seen her real twinkling eyes) is being well taken care of.
I will keep you, sweetie Sherry, in my prayers! Get well soon! —
Today’s music selection is from the Broadway play “Wicked”
Take a moment to listen to the words, (here are a few lyrics)
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…
TTFN~~ Claudia ♥ ♥
