We take the joy of good health for granted and go about our lives on a daily basis. We plan ahead all the things we want to do. And, we are fine until, one day something goes awry. Sometimes it’s a slight stroke and sometimes something more serious. That is when we realize how precious our lives, our families and our friends are.

Fortunately, we are blessed with the best health services right on our doorstep. If we are lucky, we are made well. We are given another chance to smile, to smell the roses and to give thanks. In the everyday hustle and bustle of life, lets take time to decide what is important. Do we need a car? do we enjoy meals and time together? What are our priorities? As they say “time and tide wait for no man (or woman)”.

I’ve been out of the loop for a bit now and like a baby, I’m learning… to take care of myself, eat well, and slow down. Very few of us are “super heros” and we need to recognize that. Be grateful for what you have. Why rush for a sale? There’ll be another one. Do you want rather than need? Look to your priorities, plans for the future and all of the fun stuff, like Easter, coming up.

To all of you, it’s great being back and I’ll see you on the Bayfront Bus soon. Special thanks to Meg Smith who’s been a trouper watching over me. She is just one of the friends I am fortunate to have. Looking forward to more adventures. The patient patient…Pam
