Thankful for Small Mercies


hospital stay2
Two years ago today I posted the above caption “Thankful for Small Mercies”. I’d been home about ten days after receiving quadruple bypass surgery at the Queen Elizabeth 2 hospital in Halifax Nova Scotia. It was a long road to recovery but I thank God for the skill of the surgeons, my beloved wife, my children and my beautiful grandchildren. I teased my grandson Christopher when he visited me, that I could get him a good part time job emptying the bed pans. He wasn’t sure what bed pans were used for, but flatly refused the job once I explained!!!. It was a time when I need humour and laughter.

Sitting in my chair most of the day allows lots of time to think. I thought about all the good wishes, prayers etc sent on my behalf, and of course I’m very grateful. However, it also occurred to me I should be grateful for other small mercies. Imagine if I’d had the tattoo of an exotic belly dancer on my chest. It would be ruined now!!!
God Bless and keep reading
