We will be on our way shortly so I want to luxuriate in this bed a little while longer.
As I packed yesterday I felt loved. There's a beautiful prayer shawl (which you will hear more about later in another post), a lovely book form a friend, one from my sister, and a collection of rescue remedy and essential oils from Meghan. The night before we had a delicious, relaxing dinner prepared by friends who wrapped the generous leftovers in packages for Barry to take to Toronto. One final gift is laying beside me right now. Jerri bathed Whinnie yesterday and my friend Mary came over and gave her a spa pedicure, manicure and trim. She smells and looks wonderful but the softness of her fur right now makes it impossible not to pet her.
She is going to be with Shayn for the first week and will no doubt enjoy every active minute. There's bush to run in and cats to stalk. Our wonderful Kate is on back up in case we don't make it home when expected.
Jerri has prepared some food in Toronto to keep her dad fed well and will be there to play cards and keep him company as the hours are long at the hospital.
I think we're ready, but not without all of you and your kind words and wishes. It does matter, and it does make a huge difference when you know others are sending good wishes. Thank you all. When you are out and about this week, I ask one thing. Be in the moment, enjoy what you're doing and send a prayer my way.
