You can find inspiration from others,
but determination is solely your responsibility...

Good morning everyone.  We all know this to be true, but if you had
any doubts here is a little reminder to you and to me.

Just last night as Arvid was holding my hand he said to me, "don't worry my dear.  
All of this that we are going through will just make us stronger."  

Funny enough I looked at him and I said, "I believe you, but I am already
a very strong person and I don't need addition "tests" to prove it."  I guess
I was not feeling magnanimous at that moment.  I was hurting and all I wanted
 was  to go back to being "normal"  

I wanted the life before the hospital visits, but this  is how it is for now. 
 I also look at Arvid and I see that he is also still not completely healed.  
His leg still gets very swollen if he does not elevate regularly.  

A few setbacks, but who does not have them.  Best thing to do is to always
keep moving forward.  On a very good note, yesterday we spent the day with my
parents.  We all had quite a good time in Miami.  Good food, good drinks a little shopping
and of course best of all good times with family.  Always good with mom and dad.  Arvid
was even being a good sport.  Dinner was at a Cuban Restaurant and he said the food was very good!

Arvid saying this opens the door for us to now try some new cuisines.  Being raised in
Puerto Rico I love Spanish food.  Together with Indian food, Spanish cuisine is one of
my favorites.  The flavors are unique and unmistakable.  Yep!  Can't wait until next time.

It's Saturday and it's time to start making plans for the day.  With Arvid I never
know what to expect.  All I know is that whatever we do will be fun and we will ALWAYS
have a good time.  Time for my morning tea.  No coffee lately.  Upsets the stomach.

Good morning all.
Remember, laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of the heart.

Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. 
Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. 
Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today...
