It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about anything so, I thought I’d catch you up on what’s going on in my Life – April 2023. As Spring is finally approaching, Jimi and I are enjoying warmer weather bike rides, swimming at the club, getting our garden back in shape and returning to the days of entertaining and relaxing on the deck at home.
Biggest Update – Open-Heart Chronicles
The one normal thing we’re not doing a lot of (and haven’t for a bit) is traveling. If you’re wondering why, well, my husband, Pops (a.k.a. Jimi), is about to go through open-heart surgery. I have a page dedicated to him, where he shares his Heart Chronicles, if you’d like to follow along and read more about the type of surgery he’s having.
It’s been a long, tedious process for him to get to this point, but hopefully it’ll be over with soon and, he will have a stronger heart to live another 26 years – at least until his hundredth birthday (his goals). He’s promised me this time together and, I intend to hold him to it.
Life’s Little Moments
While we’re waiting for this surgery to happen, we’re definitely trying to appreciate all of life’s little moments and the beauty around us daily.
These little moments include spending time with those close to us. I honestly don’t know how we’d be getting through this year without all the love and support from our family and friends.
The introvert that I am is very overwhelmed with all the messages and prayers from those near and far. All the loving and kind thoughts and actions mean the world to both of us.
It’s very easy to realize what is most important in life at times like these. I only hope we can keep our focus on these precious moments always.
I hope all reading this post have friends in their lives, like we do, showing them kindness and providing hugs when needed.
Even writing this has me feeling pretty emotional, so before I soak my keyboard with tears, I’d like all those dear to us to know how much gratitude and love I have for all of you.
Gratefully Yours, Jen (aka Lita)
