Family News and the View from my Windows

On Wednesday my daughter and I visited my brother in Tilbury. His grown children were also home that day. It was good to reconnect after such a long time.

This morning, my brother informed me that he will have his very major surgery a week from today, if nothing changes between now and the scheduled date. I'm glad it will be soon because, the sooner it's done the better his chances may be. I hope for the best possible outcome.

In the midst of all this, I'm comforted by what I can see through my living room windows. Verdant green tree tops, blue sky today, and part of the bell tower on the lovely stone church just south of here on Queen Street.

It's time to go for a walk and think healing thoughts.

I hope the surgery goes well and he has a full recovery.

Sorry to read about the family probs Diane. Sometimes a good long walk amongst natures beauty can be a real tonic to the soul. Its one reason I used to love living in the Lake District.

I'd get stressed, get in the car drive somewhere and then just spend the day fellwalking. It would bring some real peace and quiet to the soul no matter how bad the problems were and that feeling lasted for a few days, almost a Nirvana type of moment.

I hope everything goes smoothly for your brother Diane.

All the best!
