Happy First of June!

This will be different from past issues. No article, no update on what's going on with Your-Guide-to..... Let me explain.

Just before Mother's day I was feeling very tired, then there was shortness of breath. A visit to the doctor indicated that the heart was in fine shape but the lungs were not. A few days later I was hospitalized with a severe case of pneumonia coupled with a nasty infection in the fluid surrounding the lung. Surgery was required to get things turned around but now I'm home on the day following Memorial Day facing a rather lengthy recovery.

Handed Some Lemons? Make Lemonade!

Skilled, professional and caring physicians and hospital staff took a potentially fatal situation and put me back on the road to recovery. What a blessing.

I believe even more strongly in the power of prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit.

I can't work with my horses for quite awhile. I don't even yet have the strength to walk to the pasture.

But I can watch them. Soon I'll be able to walk to them and in a few weeks groom them. Perhaps I can learn to work with them on some new things with little effort on my part.

Anything is possible.

On those days when the energy level is low I can just sit in a chair and enjoy lakes and mountains. And I'll have plenty of time to work on the website and on this newsletter, looking for items of value to you.

Life is good.

Have a great June.
