The past week had its share of highlights and lowlights.
A mixed bag of reality vs perception.
Life, they say, is all about attitude.
How we process what we experience is what makes “good” or “bad” days.
Sub zero temps took over much of the nation.
After 3 days, it was over, at least temporarily, with temps soaring to 50 degrees.
We walked through hell to find ourselves in heaven.

My nephew’s new heart:
Touch and go: Early rejection, 3 surgeries, setbacks, suffering, waiting, hoping, praying.
A biopsy would reveal if his body had issues accepting the new heart.
No signs of rejection, following the procedure.
A long road ahead, for sure.
However, the road is now paved with hope and promise, for a renewal of life.
Finally, a brief note on my flu/cold/virus/whatever:
2 weeks in the making.
It started when the weather took a bad turn, and forced me to stay inside to rest.
A mixed blessing, again.
If the weather had eased up, I would have been running around, acting like a loose cannon.
Besides, I was able to find the cure for the common cold, during those 2 weeks:
A witches brew: hot tea, lemon, honey and whiskey.
Mark Twain said it best: “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
