Gratitude Monday – Looked After



My husband was away working for most of last week and before he left he made sure I was looked after. I had a nasty flu and Mike was worried.

He had his dad check in on me. Herb called twice daily and was by to pick up a spare key just in case I didn’t answer.

This was very thoughtful. I’m more than a little spooked these days having been so ill before Christmas.

I was fine in a few days and got back to my home alone routine of writing late at night.

I’m grateful that Mike was thoughtful enough to do this, and that his dad consented to check in on me.

The photo is of Highway 11 west of Rocky at the lookout at Abraham Lake.
It’s a summer scene in my back yard and it’s not related to the post, but it’s one more thing for which I am grateful.

Sorry you were ill, but glad to hear that you're feeling better. And how nice to know that you're in good hands.. even from a distance.

I'm so glad that you are feeling better.

I, too, am always grateful for the people who care for me when I'm not feeling well.

Glad you're feeling better!

I'd be a bit spooked too, after your recent medical isssues, so that's great to have someone checking up on you.

Beautiful picture, thanks for that!

I am glad that you are feeling better. It is nice to have people around that will look in on you.

I love that lake, it is soooo pretty! It has to be one of my favorites in the province.

Thanks, Reb. Yes, Abraham Lake is beautiful. I try not to think about all the Native graves that were flooded to make it.
