Home Sweet Home!!!

Kay and I are now back home.  We arrived in Albuquerque late Friday.  On Saturday we had to be at one of the local Wal-Mart stores and over did it just a tad.  Allergies can sometimes cause Lupus to flair up and we had been away just long enough that when we were within 100 miles of town it hit like a ton of bricks.  I ignored it on Saturday and paid for my ignorance yesterday and today.

But, the pain in the hip is now gone and the knee is recovering at a fast clip as well.  The knee always takes longer than the hands and feet.  But, with a little common sense and care everything always bounces back with a little help from our Patron Saint and his friends in high places.

Tomorrow we will need to take Fr. Servasio to the doctor up in Bernalillo as he has developed a rip roaring ear infection.  So, please keep him in your prayers.  Also a mother here in our retirement community suffered the loss of her daughter last week.  The young lady is now in a much better place, a place where there is no suffering, no pain, a place of eternal love which, as Paul tells us, outlasts all else in this universe.  Please remember her in your prayers as well.

Peace and Blessings!




Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed

Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless, aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed

It's the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance

It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong

Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose
