But happy to say that today for the first time I feel no nerve pain in my arm or hand and as a result have a huge smile on my face all day. Thanks to my lovely physical therapist Barbara Green.
I'm convinced that the universe does in fact give you what you need - often....and in fact have learned some simple lessons as a result of all this.
And today I wanted to write about love - real love which we get sometimes from unexpected places. And as a result of what I've been through - I have truly experienced love of family, friends and new friends - people who have been so kind and giving.
I've in the past written on Facebook about this wonderful Bosnian couple, Mirjana and Mato, that I have adopted as my Grandparents. Each time I stop I am greeted with such a warm embrace - and somehow we manage to communicate even though they do not speak English and I certainly don't speak Croatian. Although my Droid came in hand the other day when I googled for a translator to ask them something.
Today when I stopped by for a quick visit sweet Mirjana picked this bouquet of violets. I had picked one for her to put over her ear in her hair. She had to reciprocate with a bouquet for me. So here it is. A gesture of love. So simple. Wild violets from her yard. Some call weeds. I call beauty. I call love.
