Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!

I'm on a Rumi kick this month.
This one is my all time favorites. I'm facing some health challenges now and this poem is really inspiring me to "meet them at the door laughing".
I had a biopsy come back with a precancerous result last month and I am going to go into the hospital for surgery on Wednesday, Jan. 21. I have been rushing around trying to prepare my family and my job for my downtime so I haven't been blogging or Twittering as much lately. I'll probably continue to be blogging lite for a while but I'll be back to full strength eventually!
I've had so many friends offer help and encouragement I really want to say how much that means to me and how much I appreciate it. My family is close and they will be taking care of us along with so many friends that have offered help. I want to thank all my online friends as well for all the kind words and offers of support. You really make a difference and cheer me to the heart!
