Just the other day I saw an image of a woman with a cesarean section scar across her abdomen. I felt a sense of awe that it ever crossed someone’s mind to surgically remove a fully formed infant through the outer walls of its mother’s womb, sparing both lives simultaneously.
Then there are my parents, now in their 80s’s. Between them they have acquired two new knees, one new hip, and a brand new shoulder, all of which are functioning beautifully.
When I call home and Dad says “Mom’s at art class today” or Mom (pictured here) says “Your father is out back staking the tomatoes” I am slack jawed and grateful. and wonder how it ever occurred to someone to remove a damaged joint and put in a shiny new one.
HOP ON OVER TO MY NEW BLOG TO READ THE REST.... LEAVE A COMMENT THERE AND BE ENTERED IN A DRAWING FOR AN 8 x 10" PRINT OF THE IMAGE FROM MY APRIL 1ST PIECE, WHY MINDFULNESS.
