Hello Monday and Hello to all of you…………..SO – first of all what is SPARKS on Monday? “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort. Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way.
Last week on Monday’s SPARK post I confessed that I’m recognizing (eek) that I am aging and maybe more quickly now than ever before. I think whenever I go to the doctor I tend to “refocus” on my body more and that’s when I realize that “I’ve Come A Long Way Baby!”………and hopefully have a long way to go. I had an eye appointment for the first time in a couple of years; partly due to Covid and partly because I wanted to find an opthalmologist closer to home – which I did – and I like her a lot. Anyway, she told me my cataracts are ready for surgery whenever I want to do that. I’ve had them for a while – terrible vision but I’m kind of “used” to it. I’m going to have that surgery after we take our vacation this Fall. THEN I had my 6 month physical with my primary care doc and told him I’m having a bit of a problem catching my breath lately on the stairs or walking up our hill in the front yard especially if I’m having to carry my boy Teddy the 23 lb. cat up the hill to bring him inside (when he doesn’t want to come inside). SO I have a pulmonary function test scheduled next month now too. Dermatology doctor and dentist are both in August as well. BODY MAINTENACE is time consuming! But as my SPARK today illustrates – our body is IMPORTANT……….maybe now more than ever!
Yep – that says it all right? Right! So I will not complain when I spent most of next month in physicians’ offices. It’s worth it. Totally.
