Support, Rainbows, and Ants

It’s Saturday – a long weekend Saturday, no less – and time to look back at three beautiful things from the past week:

1. My friends and family – near and far – were overwhelming in their support and well-wishes as I underwent my LASIK surgery, none more so than my sister-in-law, who spent the day with me and made sure I was OK.

2. Though I am told to expect “halos” around bright lights for a while post surgery, no one mentions that they may be rainbows. It’s more than a little magical to have rainbow vision, even if it is temporary.

3. I can see an ant crawling on the wall behind my television while I am still seated on the couch, using only my eyes. Having any kind of bug in my apartment is, of course, not beautiful, but the fact that I can actually see it: amazing.

What’s been beautiful in your world this week?

    Your #3 is PHENOMINAL !!! Sorry it’s an ant, but WOW!!! Seems like you’ve gotten a fab result from your surgery!!!

    Great day with the H-boys too. Chilling out with Bri tonight after a hectic day of keeping two of the Grands entertained.

    Sugar ant or carpenter ant? (size) Very glad you’ve had such a good week!

    As for us in Houston,
    1. I started the week last Sunday with a massage and a mani-pedi, which I must say is a fabulous way to start any week 🙂
    2. The Rangers lost on Friday night
    3. James and I went to the zoo on Friday and had great fun feeding the giraffes and hanging with the chimps.

    Bonus, the cleaning folks came today so the house is spotless, and James took a 5 hour nap, so Mama and Dada took naps too. This long weekend has gotten off to an excellent start!

    Oh Eileen, your ant question has me laughing! If going CLOTHES shopping with the majority of our kids made my list of beautiful things for this past week, would that be too telling of how things have been here?
