Spring Has Arrived

The azaleas are beginning to bloom; beautiful flowers are planted downtown on every corner and Fairhope is a fairy land.  Gorman and I have enjoyed working in our yard, cutting back the remnants of our frightful Winter and planting new pots of flowers. Who would think that a man with brain cancer could work so hard outside, then come in and cook a great meal?  And the next day, I am the one with a sore back, not Gorman!

Now that DST is here, we often go down to the bay in the evenings and watch the sunset.  If that’s not a gift from God, I don’t know what is.  Each one is different with streaks of pink clouds one day and a huge orange ball of a sun the next.  We have discovered a new favorite song, “Ten Thousand Reasons (Bless The Lord)” by Matt Redman.  We drive around listening to it and singing at the tops of our voices.  Fortunately no one can hear us.  It’s impossible to feel sad or anxious after listening to that song.  The very cool video is on YouTube if you’re interested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtwIT8JjddM

March has been a month of lots of company which is lots of fun for us.  No travels planned right now but if his next MRI is clear, I’m sure we’ll begin talking about going somewhere.

Gorman has an appointment with Mike Meshad, our oncologist, next week and he will probably schedule the next MRI then but for now, we are enjoying life and thanking God for each day.
