My family tells the joke that I put my car in the garage in January until April every year. This is not completely true but since retiring after 43 years as a nurse and knowing that there are no snow days for the hurting, I try not to travel in snow and ice. I have three children and three grandchildren so I am always concerned if they are traveling . I was awake at four this morning because my son had to go to work at 4 am today. I was reading and praying as I visualized him on the icy streets and then at 6:30 am the telephone rang. Even as I ran to answer it , I got a sliver of fear. Then I heard his voice and it was a sound of safety. I said I am glad you called and not texted. I am convinced that beautiful sights and sounds make us better butterflies so now I will move to the next experience of this day as I sit in my home radio station and prepare for my blog talk program. This week it is about how we writers apply our work to wellness and already I feel better.
