It's What We Do...

We have a saying around here. "It's what we do" is a sentiment Handsome and I have taken to heart our entire married lives. It covers our interactions with each other, and that one takes care of the other always, but especially when one of us is sick or needs a little extra TLC.

I had planned to start Christmas gifts yesterday, but Handsome has been under the weather since Wednesday night. He was worse, so I called his doctor and we decided he should go to Urgent Care to see what's going on. Turns out he has acute bronchitis, and because we've both had pneumonia, we know that lungs aren't things to be messed with. I also know just how crummy he must be feeling.

Rather than spend time in the studio, I decided to do some things that had to be done to take care of my beloved. Delay is not denial, and I have time to get my projects done for Christmas. He is more important, and if I need to, I can always purchase from other creatives this year to flesh out our gift-giving. 

I guess I should write out that annual gift list first, anyway, so I can show you what I hope to finish by December 24th. I'll work on that and give you the list by Monday. If Handsome is feeling better today, I might even get something started to show you then, too!

Healinng Energy for Handsome. You are so good to put your projects on hold and take care of your ailing husband. Being sick is never a good thing and acute bronchitis is certainly serious and needs lots of attention. "It's what we do" is a wonderful bond between you and Handsome. May he be well in speedy order and I am pretty sure you will meet your deadlines. I am busy checking my Christmas list...

With all the traveling and moving, it takes it's toll, and his resistance probably got low. Praying he is better soon. I know you will take good care of him! You're a good wife!

At our home when my nephew was young Star Wars was all the rage. He and pals had all the gear and fought major battles in the living room with the boxer dog on guard. When someone was wounded they touched "the healing droid" (aka boxer!) and were instantly relieved of pain. Put Tag and Bella to the task!! Helpers they can be (Yoda voice!). I am recovering from surgery with hubby taking good care of me and my healing droid hasn't been more than a couple of inches away all week long. He has massive big brown eyes like Tag. They melt my heart and make rest so peaceful. Prayers are with you all.

Oh, dear! I do hope your dear husband feels much better very soon! Bronchitis and pneumonia can sure take a toll so let's hope he'll recover quickly with your TLC!

Always that one illness that is truly not to be dismissed, wise decision Donna! Praying for a blanket of healing, as my gramma often told us.

I do hope that Handsome is feeling better.
Thinking of you both,
