::faithful – Praying for friends who are grieving. Praying for friends who are recovering from illnesses and surgeries. Just praying.
::creative – Still knitting on that cap. I’m beginning to struggle with the lace pattern.
::hearing (and watching!) – The Oscars…the dresses are SO PRETTY!!
::pondering – Today’s sermon at mass. The gospel reading was from Matthew, the passage about how God provides what we need, and how we should look at how birds survive and how flowers do not worry about what they wear. I especially liked Father’s comments about the birds. Do they just sit around being birds and wait for food to fall into their beaks? Nope. Birds wake up every morning, go about the business of finding food, maintaining their nests and caring for their young. We do the same thing. The difference between us and the birds, though, is that birds go to sleep every night without worrying about tomorrow. They take care of what needs to be taken care of in the moment of every day, and they rejoice in the provision!
::Kill All the Cells!! – This week marks the HALFWAY POINT of my chemotherapy!! I’m halfway through!!
Then there’s chemo brain. They told me it would happen, but I (in my vanity) presumed it wouldn’t happen to ME. HA!!! Thank goodness I’m a compulsive list maker and that I have a life-long habit of using a day planner. Right now, I’m using both a paper planner AND an electronic planner. I’ve started clipping my car keys to my purse. I write my medication schedule on the bathroom mirror with an Expo marker. I lost my wig cap and spent fifteen minutes looking for it. (It was on my head.) I feel asleep in the Lego Movie. I can’t remember what I ate for breakfast this morning. I burned scrambled eggs yesterday. Who burns scrambled eggs? ACK!!!
- Chicken Pot Pie
- Vegetable Soup
- Whatever we are served by volunteers at the Basketball Tournament
- After Thursday’s chemo, frozen meals from friends for the next many rough days – the boys can pick and reheat what they want
::fun – Week two of annual basketball tournament.
::fashionable – – Really? It’s been a very relaxed day, so no judging – black and white cheetah print fleece pants, hot pink tee, that favorite grey cashmere hoodie, black cap. I wore nice green dress slacks and a beige tunic sweater to church this morning.
::looking ahead – Visiting the Chemo Bar for Round Six, the HALFWAY POINT!!!. Meetings, wrapping up a submittal, Ash Wednesday.
