The Hug Coupon

Hello again......It's 5:30 a.m, my usual wake-up time. I didn't sleep too well last night...Just brewed a fresh pot of coffee. My faithful notepad and pen lie nearby, with a book I would be researching, so I may jot down my notes and thoughts, while I sip my coffee. Even though I know the coffee will give me heartburn, I need that stimulant, so I can move on to my next activity for the day. Grateful for my anti-acid medication, I deal with the heartburn. I really shouldn't complain, one must be grateful for the small things in life....heartburn and all.

Okey, now, my ritual of medication is over, which seems to increase everytime I go for my routine check-up at the doctors. I think I would feel incomplete, if I didn't have once a prescription or blood work paper in my hand each time I left the doctor's office.

I am wide awake now and ready to work a few hours on I'm wondering where my keyboard is. I'm sure it was here on my desk before I went to bed. Ahhh! There it is, buried under the pile of paperwork. I am surrounded by a literary blanket of books, all within reach, minimizing my work space. apartment is starting to look like a library. So grateful for my post-ems and notes, they are all over the desk and tray table, reminding me of what to do or where I left off. Someday, I promise myself that I will get to the mess.. a familiar ring?

Before I forget, the other day I received this tid-bit from someone. Its called the Hug Coupon....I thought it would be a nice way to start the I am going to share it with you.

Mimi, thank you for all the hugs we got growing up, the memories of our family always laughing mainly laughing at each other. Your laugh is always contagious but most of all it was from the heart. Thank you for always being there during the hard times, when we needed to be lifted up again by humor. You have always been in our minds but most of all you have always being in our hearts! Keep up the good work and keep telling it as it is!

With my love
