Serge Wins Counties Again & Today is Two Years

So two weeks ago Serge won counties for a second year. He was severely cramping in his hand and legs, fell on the ground, and  when he got up his legs were so stiff from cramping that he could hardly move. He just played UNBELIEVABLE tennis!!! It was just amazing. I have never seen him play so well.


He suddenly developed a sore throat before the cramping started. I ran out and found a Rite-aid 5 minutes away. Bought him orange juice, Emergen-C, and Vit. C throat lozenges. The runner up is a solid player, and it was so nice to see them both enjoying playing with one another. When coach came around asking if I or others had anything salty, his opponent's grandparents gave him a can of almonds! The nicest, most gracious family.  What a joy to see young players who are honest and good. What a joy to see people who just wished the boys well. Now that's the way to play tennis!

So 9:16 this morning brought in the 2nd year mark for Ken's passing. Luckily there wasn't much going on at work this morning, because I welled up a few times. My students didn't see. I was so glad that it wasn't hectic. A quiet day otherwise. We watched 'The Secret' at the end of the day. It is a feel good, inspirational movie based on the book. So what started out as a possibly weepy day, turned into a beautiful day full of wonderful memories. I turned on Jim Brickman Radio for the class, and it set the tone for a peaceful and uplifting day.

Then a retired priest from our church and his wife came over. They wanted to give me something. They had no idea that it was Ken's 2 yr. anniversary of passing, but it was providencial. Fr. was upset that he hadn't checked his calendar, but I was tickled over the visit. They are an elderly couple who are two of the most wonderful people you could ever meet, placing smiles upon all faces, young and old. He said a couple of prayers for Ken in Heaven, and us here on earth.We are truly blessed.Having Fr. and his wife come over for nice conversation and special things topped off our quiet day.

We truly must find the good in every day. Sometimes it may be difficult, but I always wake up saying thank you, and fall asleep saying thank you. If I am cranky and can't find much to be thankful about I thank God for my family , cats, and tulips and lilacs, my favorite flowers.

Got a terrific fortune in my fortune cookie today. At first I thought it was the silliest thing, and then I re-read it.

                        Fear came knocking at my door. Faith answered it. There was no one there.

With faith, fear is gone. May you have a faithful and blessed day.

Love you, Ken!     xoxoxo
