a poet’s praise

sun shines
on the icicles
by my study window
good results today
from a medical test

I am grateful for my good care team. They know who they are, and Karl drives me to my appointments. Health is my main work now. I enjoy cooking good meals, and I look forward to being in the yard again this Spring. I missed last year, in some ways. The lilacs grew tall and I saw them from my poet’s window. Read many books. A year ago, I wondered if I could still live here, in this big old house. Now I can manage again. I still have areas to work on, and more follow-up appointments. Grateful for my care team, as I already wrote. And I continue to pray the Psalms, lots of rest.

Take good care too.
