This Week's Reflections

I know I haven't told her yet, but I do love the concept of wrapping up a week with a review of sorts.  Nicole over at Destinations Unknown has a weekly post about Things I've Learned This Week.  I like that. 

I like the idea of a short and sweet list of the week as I reflect on it.  And I have maintained for many years that I will be a lifelong student.  So why not reflect on what I've learned?!  (Thanks, Nicole). 

Things like:
  • It's been 3 months since my kidney surgery.  Man that time went fast and I'm feeling great!!
  • When you get diagnosed with cancer, it's okay to not like what you are hearing.  But it can be inspiring to others to watch how you handle it.  And my big brother is amazing!!  (Love ya, Larry!!)
  • I really am getting better at working on damaged photos in Photoshop.
  • I need a new cell phone.  My flip phone takes its sweet time pulling in text messages.  I end up getting them 24 hours later. 
  • Mother Nature is simply amazing.  In less than a month, she can go from this

  • My daughter knows how to touch my heart.  And it's the little things that touch my heart in a big way.
  • I'm not good at computer repair.  And I need to have the ability to view videos on my computer.  It's been a over a month that I've tried to restore my video capability since loading a new version of Adobe Flash Player and I'm not getting anywhere.  Therefore, I'm handing my computer over to my favorite IT guy so he can make it like new again. 
It might be a few days before I visit your blogs and leave comments.  But once my IT guy does his magic, I'll be back taking online classes and showing you the results!  Have a happy week!!

So glad you are doing well! Hope to start hearing more from you. Good luck with the computer issues. I know how much those issues can send me into a tizzy and I certainly don't need anymore tizzies!

I love that quote from your brother. It is great advice for many of life's unpleasant situations :)
