Where There Is Goodness There Is Magic

Good Sunday Morning to you! Sitting here in the office savoring my morning tea. English Breakfast by Tazo. I popped a pinch of cinnamon on top this morning and with a dash of Almond Milk, that stuff is delicious!

Outside it’s looking pretty gloomy. And windy, very windy. But at least we haven’t had to turn on the heat yet. Supposed to rain today and we desperately need it. I swear this is the driest place I have ever lived. We go through lotion by the gallon.

One of my beliefs is that if you can dream it, you can do it. A little bit of magic, a whole lot of hard work, and a strong network of women who keep you on the right track and you can change the world. Or at least your little corner of the world. And that is what I wanted.

I believed in my husband until he believed in himself and Boom!, he took off like a bottle rocket. I am so proud of him I think I have stars in my eyes, or maybe those are floaters in that left eye. Either way, he had a dream and he made it happen. The fact that it came at the same time as my dream was a bonus.

Every challenge I’ve taken on, this man has been right there beside me cheering me on. And now we get to do that for each other. You see, after having several heart attacks and open heart surgeries before he was even 35, then being told there is no more they can do, he was pretty much just waiting to die. Now he is fighting to live and not only live but flourish. The smoking is gone, the diet is great, lost about 15 pounds since Christmas and I couldn’t be any prouder of him. I mean good lord, one day I found him cleaning out and organizing his dresser and closet! A man throwing away socks and underwear! It’s a miracle I tell you!

This year instead of just dreaming a little dream, how about living a little dream!

xx Much Loveย  Patricia

    I love this post Patricia. Happy New Year to the both of you. So glad to hear of your husband’s progress. Now, I am not going to give him all the credit for cleaning out his own drawer. I am sure you had some influence. But you’re right, a miracle occured. My best to you and all your loved ones in 2018. I love this blog as I said many times before. It makes me hungry.

    I am so glad he is being proactive. I have a sign in front of my chair on the opposite wall where I can see it everyday that says “She believed she could, so she did. I need that more than ever now but it will keep working as long as I keep believing. Miracles can happen and I’m glad you both got some. Even the socks and underwear is a big deal.
