A Week

A view along the way at Corona Del Mar on our Valentines Day walk yesterday

Hi friends–  It’s been a week.  No involved details, but my mother had her hip replaced on Monday.  I’ve always known that woman was intrepid, but she’s been unswervingly brave through all this– giving it her all to get recovered and back home.  So my brother and I have pretty much been at hospitals most of the week. He’s been a rock.  But a week like this puts a lot of things in perspective– what’s real, what’s true, what’s important…

“The length of our days is seventy years–of eighty, if we have the strength;…for they quickly pass, and we fly away.  … Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”     –Psalm 90:10-12

A hard week, a good week, to number days, to check my heart, to talk & talk with my brother, to love my amazing mom… God is good.

P.S.  Ended the week with a Valentines Day picnic on the bluff over Corona Del Mar on a picture perfect February afternoon with Larry, my valentine of 40 years.
