Has been my word
For the past week .
IT started 
on my birthday 
november 2
my children gave me
an IPad 
I was over the moon
And than 
november 5
I had the chance
of receiving a new hip
Tuesday in the hospital 
Friday I was allowed to go home.

Let I say 
That is quite an experience

One thing I new for sure

My children cleaned the whole house
Every inch 
Bright and shiny 
I could feel the clean and fresh energy
My new start
Was blessed
So blessed
IT feels like
I am making a whole new start 

The first days 
I was very emotional
All the love and the gifts
and the mail
and the surprises
IT almost was TOO MUCH
to take in 

I am doing
and now learning
to use my IPad 
for blogging too.

  2. Fijn te horen dat hetzo goed gaat. Lekker rustig aan de goede kant weer op...wat een lieve kinderen heb je...lijken vast op hun moeder:) lieve groetjes

  3. I am so happy you got your hip replacement. My cousin was a professional dancer and finally 64 years of dancing got to her hips. She had the replacement and is doing fantastic so I know you will be running around soon.

    An iPad . . . what a fun gift

    A clean house . . . beyond wonderful

    A new hip . . . priceless

    And a birthday - belated wishes from one Scorpio to another. Tomorrow I will be 65.

  4. I wouldn't be without my iPad now! I am glad you have one too! What a lovely act of kindness by your children. I hope your recovery continues to be quick, and you are soon running about again.

  5. Lieve Francis,

    Jeetje, ik heb gemist dat je geopereerd bent aan je heup. Wat een enorme operatie. Ik hoop dat het goed met je gaat en je alweer een beetje op de been bent. Ontzettend lief dat de kinderen zo goed voor je hebben gezorgd en je zo'n prachtig cadeau hebben gegeven!

    Fijn weekend en van harte beterschap!

  6. I'm so glad you're feeling better now with your new hip, Francis. Your kids are so wonderful to come in and clean your house while you were away. I have seen the IPads. They are very cool.

    You're right, there's no place like home. It is my favorite place to be.


  7. Oh, Happy Birthday to you! I hope your day was filled with everything you love.


  8. Good morning my dear one.

    I am late, school is taking up my time and I am not spending much time blogging any more. I am still visiting all my friends, but posting is taking a back seat to my work and my poetry workshops.

    However, I can never forget my dear friends. I have thought of you, hoping you are well. As you can already see, I am no longer one to hand-write letters, but rather enjoy blogging and emailing. I just want to tell you here that I am SO HAPPY to know you are experiencing a positive new start. May your recovery bring you healing and I'm so glad you have an IPAD! Visit me when you can. I've missed your posts and your visits. Love, Anita

  9. This is such a sweet and beautiful blog..I see Anita visited too...wishing you well...stay warm and stay happy..Blessings T.D and Company
