I just spoke to Paul. His first words were, "She came through the surgery last night."

I thought he was kidding, but no, Belinda did actually have emergency surgery. All I know at this point is that everything went fine and she, of course, is resting in hospital. Paul came home to get a few hours sleep and will be headed back to the hospital later today.

It is so good to know she is in such good hands - the Father's - who loves her more than we do.

Belinda will be thanking everyone already for their prayers and will be back here in the saddle on Whatever He Says as soon as she is able.

Blessings everyone, Susan.

I just came from seeing Belinda in the hospital and we heard that wonderful laugh of hers. They call her the 'miracle' patient and she was just back from a walk when we got there. She'll be there a few more days but she's looking wonderful!!

Yeah, I used to think she had the constitution of a horse. But a mutual friend, Claire, told me today that horse can't bear what Belinda went through. Most of them die... So now we know she's even stronger than a horse! :)
Ummm Susan, most of them are shot and, luckily, this is not yet a treatment option in Ontario hospitals!! But I agree Belinda's spirit is that of a champion.

Just back from visiting Belinda and she looks well, pink cheeks, and vibrant spirit. It is always such a blessing to be with her and as always, she wants to hear how you're doing.

May she continue to get well.

It was a blessing to see Susan too - her wrist in a brace and a scrape and bruise on her chin and I'm sure generally recuperating too!

May Belinda enjoy receiving as she recuperates. This time of recovery a gift she may unwrap.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
