Another Day, Another Chance
The nice part is, when I do open my eyes I can take a breath and think about what a great life I have around me. A comfortable pillow and sheet and blanket, in a soft bed, in a warm room in a sturdy house, with my family and dog and cat, without any major problems. Being pain-free is certainly icing on the cake.
As I lay there, I could hear Sue talking on the phone in the kitchen while she cooked something. Among the smells of home was caramelized onions, a wonderful aroma, up there with fresh coffee and bacon. So much nicer than waking up in an empty house.
Enough for now.
