Life is not always a matter of holding good cards,
but sometimes, playing a poor hand well.

My sisters came and my sisters left.  Though I had told them not to come,
I was really happy to see them and to be able to reassure them that I was OK and for
them not to worry so much.  Mom and dad are also soon leaving and because I am not feeling
as good as I want to I will not be seeing them on the last day that they are here.  All I know
is that I have a wonderful family.  Mom and dad stayed much longer than they normally would 
just so that they can be near by for me and for Arvid.  Of course before my mom and sisters left 
they came to us with tons of foodies for me.  Lots of soups and chicken made just the way I like.

I'm already missing them all.  Coming from a big family has so many advantages as far 
as I am concerned.  The sad thing is that when they leave the place is so empty and quiet.
Even though they did not stay with us, I knew they were just a few minutes away.  I will
miss y mom the most because she and I always did something together even if it was only
time for a cup of coffee at Starbucks.  We both had a good time and now I just have to wait until
 next time we see them.  

People come and people go.  That's life.  Today we see Victoria, Arvid's eldest daughter
and her boyfriend.  Looking forward to this also very much.  Hopefully we will have 
some good times together.  Other than that, I am getting better all the time.

Not being able to move around as much as I would like, it is nice to at least be
able to sit and enjoy some relaxing views from our apartment.  Very soothing,
relaxing and Arvid swears it promotes good health.  I agree of course.

Happy Sunday everyone.  Hope the day brings out the best in everyone.
Remember, a quality life is more valuable than a quantity life.

Life, it's either a daring adventure or nothing at all.  
LIVE IT!!!!...
