Today was a beautiful Spring Day. The perfect temperature, a gentle breeze, exactly what you would think of when you think of Spring! I started my day with a Barre class and wound up being the only one there so it was a private lesson and after nearly two weeks of not being able to get to a class with my dad in the hospital and other commitments, it was a great way to get back into it – thanks Nerissa – I loved class!!
I went to visit my dad in the hospital. He seems to be recovering a lot more quickly this time. He had physical therapy today and the woman had him up and walking with a walker. He got about four rooms down from his own room which is further than he has moved in more than a week. More PT tomorrow and then we will see what the plan is. He seemed very pleased about being up and around.
Drew had a soccer game and sitting out in the grass for nearly two hours on this gorgeous day almost made me feel guilty because I wasn’t doing anything. I sat with a soccer mom friend of mine, Mary. Her youngest son was sitting with us. He is in first grade. At the beginning of the game, Mary mentioned to me that she loved reading my blog and she asked how my dad was doing. I filled her in on dad and then told her I had just been thinking about the blog because I wasn’t sure what to write about, the glorious weather? Dad?
When the game was over, her son showed me a three leaf clover he had found in the grass. I realized that the entire time, I had been sitting on a patch of clovers. I asked him if he’d ever found a four leafed one and he said no. I told him neither did I. An old friend of mine from high school, Holly, finds them regularly. Almost to the point of it being a joke! She always posts a picture of them on Facebook and people are always commenting on it. In my forty-four years, I truly have never found one but today, as I looked down, there was one right by my leg. A tiny one, but sure enough, it had four leaves on it. I picked it, took a photo and sent the picture to Holly. Maybe its my lucky day!?!? I am headed to a school auction and tricky tray tonight, so I sure hope so!!!
The best part of it all, was when Mary’s son, who I didn’t think had been listening to our conversation said to me, “Well, I guess now you know what you can write about in your blog!” He was right
