Looking for the Positive Today


Looking for the Positive Today

(Editor's Note: We welcome Sue, who cares for her husband, to our blogging team today. You can connect with her on her profile page: @suzanneelliott.)

sun-183742_640Looking for the positive today so here is my list so far:

* We both slept quite well with no unwelcome events in the night.

* I got out and went walking with my best girlfriend and then had breakfast with her afterward at a nice cafe. I got a "to go" order for my husband at home. He was so pleased to have a change of taste for breakfast/brunch rather than his "usual".

* I was able to get my husband in and out of the shower without incident - he always feels so much better after a nice shower.  I cut his toe nails - boy did they need it. After this post I will attempt to get him to sit outside in some sunshine for 10 minutes or so. I keep telling him he will feel better after being out in nature for a little while rather than sitting and watching TV all day.

* I have my wonderful caregiver lady coming tomorrow and Tuesday mornings to help out. I can then go and do shopping and other things without worry. Tomorrow afternoon I have to take my caree to the pulmonary specialist,  which will take hours but at least I will have had a break in the morning.

Wishing all of you positive rays of sunshine each day this week!

Thanks, Sue, for reminding me there is so much positive, even in the little things. Glad you're blogging.


Hi Sue--I'm so glad you are blogging! Your morning sounds just lovely. That's a perfect morning in my book--walk with a friend and then breakfast after. \r\n\r\nI hope your husband was able to enjoy some time with nature. :)\r\n\r\nKeep us posted on how you do this week. I wish you many rays of sunshine, too.
