I’m just finishing a nap. Then my exercises. I hear small feet. A bit of a cough. Some ladies talking. I head to the kitchen. My daughter has arrived. With her two year old son. The outdoors beckon. We head outside. Walk up and down — not too far. Now he’s drawing. I’m appreciating the […]
Tomorrow my daughter arrives for a few days, with our grandson. They will be here to watch over me. Monday, my wife leaves wih her sister for Edmonton. There, on Wednesday, she will have surgery to replace her heart pacemaker battery. Hopefully they will return the end to the week. So, tonight we rest and prepare.

Well, today a friend dropped off a different walker to try out. The previous walker was helpful but a few inches too short. I’ve been walking around, having fun with a seat that is slightly taller — so I can actually get up with little help from the arms on the walker. Funny how experience […]
It’s pasts seven and the sun is still noticable. Two months ago the sun did not shine — at this time of night. There is something encouraging about sun in the night. As though the day could take over the darkness. And all is well, light is life and things go on as God planned. I’ve been […]
