Back in the saddle
As we left the court she instructed me to ice the leg and take an Advil to decrease the inflammation. So, I'm sitting her with an ice bag on my lower leg and a glass of white wine. (I'll take the Advil at bed.)
Writing this blog has forced me to become more contemplative. And, I believe it's a good thing to take stock on a regular basis; to examine your blessings, your good fortune and your path. Tonight, I am thankful for my friend, Sally. She is someone I've known for a very long time but really only on the squash court. She's a competitor and a mentor, and she's become a good friend. I am fortunate to have so many good girl friends, and they all bring different gifts. If you have a friend like Sally, please take the time to tell him/her what he/she means to you. We take so much for granted, and friendships, in all their forms, should be cherished and nourished. Say "thank you" to your friends.
Of course, my best friend in the world is Bill. I try to remember to thank him for all the things he brings but, like a lot of spouses, I don't say it enough. So, THANK YOU, Bill and P.S.: tonight's dinner was scrumptious.
