Close enough to the end of the day to call it a winner! Amazing how things have been happening these past 3 days. Phone call at 6:30 a.m. My mom lives at a care facility and there is a medical problem. At 7 a.m. I'm on the road for a 3 hour drive. By 3 p.m. mom is back from the hospital and tucked back in at her residence and all seems good. I will check back in on her in the morning and then hopefully I'll be heading back home. I guess these past few days have been good tests for me. They are making me stronger! I still haven't had the opportunity to check out my local library for Alan Carrs' book. Definitely want to give that a read. Thank you all for the opportunity to babble on.
I just realized that through out this day I drove by many gas stations and the thought of stopping for a pack never entered my mind. Guess it was a good thing that my mind was preoccupied with mom :-) pmt
