Moving Forward

Dear Friends,

This is a follow-up to my last post…thank you for your love, prayers, positive thoughts, and support. I’m feeling much better, but healing on the inside is still needed. So, I’m in the process of scheduling a procedure that will provide answers.

In the meantime, it’s great to have my energy back; it’s no fun staying in bed not being able to contribute to the daily routine. My outlook is optimistic, but I’m also realistic. I don’t do well living in gray area, so we shall see…

On a lighter note, I love the cooler weather, and the season of Fall is one of my favorites…the colors, the smells, the foods, and the change of wardrobe. πŸ™‚ And for the new season upon us, I’m including a fun haiku, and of course, Copper. My daughter took this photo a few years back, and it remains a favorite.

    1. You’re right, and when I wasn’t feeling good, it was easier to think that way. But now that I’m physically feeling better, my attitude is more optimistic. Thanks so much, Binky!

    1. Thanks again, Sue, you alone are a light in my life, my friend. And I’m glad you enjoyed the poem, and of course, Copper. But he’s pretty irresistible anyway. πŸ˜‰ Your words go straight to my heart with warmth. Sending hugs and lots of love your way, too. xoxo

    1. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts, Betty. I appreciate that and I’m glad you liked the haiku and photo, too. I’m so ready for cooler weather, and today, it was in the 80’s. Sending some hugs back to you. Oh, and tomorrow is Friday….YAY!!! πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. Thanks, Jane. Sometimes, it’s fun to dig in the poem archives, and it’s always fun to share pics of Copper. He’s such a big lovable baby. πŸ™‚ Hugs to you! ❣❣❣

  2. Beautiful Haiku, Lauren and Copper is so cute. Happy that your home again. Hopefully you wil know very soon what is going on. Uncertainty is an awful place to be.

    1. Thanks for your lovely comment, Francina, and for your continued positive thoughts. It’s surreal to feel good on the outside, yet knowing that inside there is still something that needs healing. I’m optimistic, though, and will remain in that mindset. πŸ™‚ Love and hugs to you, my friend, from across the big blue. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

    1. It’s so good to see you, PJ. I hope you’re doing okay, too. I’m going through a bit of a health mystery right now, but hopefully, I’ll get answers soon that aren’t too scary. Take care, my friend. Hugs and blessings, also…xo

    1. Thanks, Iris…the procedure that will hopefully bring answers is on Oct. 11th, so I have to wait a few more weeks. But I am feeling better, which is good. πŸ™‚ Hugs to you, too, and have a good weekend. xoxo

    1. Thanks so much, Eric, and it’s great to see you back. And thanks for taking the time to catch up on my posts. There were quite a few. πŸ™‚
      I have a procedure in 3 weeks that will hopefully bring answers, but praying that answer isn’t serious. So if you can keep me in your prayers, I would appreciate it. πŸ™‚ Take care and stay well and good to see you!

      1. Dear Lauren,
        I will be pray for you – daily – at day break and sunset.
        By the Grace of Our Lord, the Love of God, and the Fellowship of the Holy Spirit – all will be well.

  3. Hello socks and boots indeed! πŸ˜„ It’s officially Autumn here too – rainy, cold and windy! I actually forgot what that looked and sound and smelled like! πŸ˜‚
    So glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better! Copper looks ultra zen in this picture!! Take care, dear Lauren! Much love! xoxo ❀

    1. I’m jealous, Sarah. Our mornings and nights have cooled down, but we’ve had some summer days lately. I’m ready for a weather and wardrobe change. πŸ™‚ Yes, Copper does look quite zen. It’s amazing that my daughter caught him at the perfect moment. The benefit of digital – just click, click, click, until you get a good one. πŸ™‚ Much love to you, too, my dear friend. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

      1. It will be much colder before you know it. πŸ˜‰ And that’s exactly why I love digital photography so much too. πŸ˜‰ Big hugs! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

I appreciate your thoughts!
