"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

of sweetness and light...

...last weekend my grand girl came over for a visit.  Not only did I see her, after being woken from a nap by some babies bouncing on the bed, but she left her trademark when she went home.

I have some decorative birds in the house and my little one is the epitome of love and light.  After she went home I noticed that all of the birds are standing beak to beak as if in an embrace/kiss.

Hubby said he saw her bringing water to them, touching it to her finger and then to their lips.  She went outside and did the same thing with the tiny bird bath and feeder we have.  She has such a gentle soul, a true loving spirit.  After a rough week in this country it seems we need a lot more of that.  The innocence of a sweet baby girl and her concern for the world around her.  She is a wonderful blessing and it crushes my spirit to know that someday, something, somewhere, someone will change that.  For now though, I want to send it out there and enjoy it.

On another note...I have a date with a robot for kidney surgery on Wednesday at 5a.m., I'm guessing robots never sleep!  If all goes well I will be without my left kidney and we will deal with the right one in six weeks.  The plan is 3-5 days in the hospital although I have only been approved for one!  Save a prayer, be well my friends.  I will be back when time allows     ;j
