here comes the sun...

... this perfect bloom is from a bouquet my dad brought me last week. can you see the nectar droplets in the centre?
it reminds me every day is a new day full of sweetness...

this is my 100th post - i'm in awe of all the amazing people i've 'met' in the past year. my life is soooo much richer since last september when i started this blog!!!!!!!!!!

i've been rereading all the beautiful comments you have sent me, and i can feel the life-giving ambrosia filling up my soul... even dear daisy lupin is blessing me from her new soul-home (i thank the universe for giving me a chance to meet this beautiful lady as some glitter sisters met together in march this year...)

certainly my life has changed so much these past 3 month since my stroke on 9 may, but as this sunflower reminds me, each day i'm learning a bit more about what my dear body can do...

today i actually showered, dried and dressed myself completely. i'm sooo proud of myself, but oooooohhh so exhausted!!! starting on wednesday the daily visits from my carers will focus on my physio exercises, so no more help getting washed and dressed... i admit i'm nervous about this, but for this day, i'm basking in my personal achievement this morning!!!

and tomorrow's sweetness has yet to reveal itself...

Congrads on the accomplishment, I know how important independence can be after a long illness. I still can not bend down to pick things up and I will be so glad when I can. Its wonderful seeing you blog again.

Kate
