One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small

I woke up this morning and heard my husband talking on the telephone.

He has the most wonderful voice. I have always loved that voice.

My next thought was - "What would it be like to live alone? Just me. No-one else to consider."

But then, there was his voice. I'd miss that. I'd miss him.

When I wandered into the kitchen the nesting pair of juncos was on the back porch checking out the flower boxes -they made me laugh.

My husband came into the kitchen and put his hand on the back of my neck as he does often. It is a loving gesture.

"I think the pills are working - it is good to hear you laugh".

My eyes teared up as they are tearing up now.

I have been laughing more often - just a chuckle here or there.

Another sign that upping my medication was a good call.

Or it could be the juncos.

Or spring.

Because spring is coming.

It always comes.


  1. I'm glad you have been able to laugh again. Spring is just getting started, so there is much to look forward to. Green grass, flowers and trees coming to life, warmer days...I'm also glad you have been able to adjust your drugs so they are working properly.

    1. I am also looking forward to finding that teapot hike!

    2. If you decide to come out to hike Teapot Hill I would be happy to go with you!

  2. It's lovely that you are beginning to laugh again.Maybe it's the tablets. maybe you husband, or maybe it is because of the promise of spring just around the corner. Whatever it is, I am thrilled you are starting to feel better.

  3. I'm glad you're smiling more :)
