 I have had the worse couple of days. Friday, trying to get my mammogram and bone density appointment scheduled together . Worst experience ever. Four persons later, one who tried to insist I would take an appointment she wanted me to have! I have limited days and times I can go to appointment. It is no one's business why. The first one was incredibly snarky and the second one clueless. The third one was pushy and number four, their over  the top, overly exaggerated cheery one who must have heard the third say, "I am finished with the medical field. Since you can not get decent care or even a decent appointment that you want, I might be better off just never going to any of these appointments. I am dead serious." Ever since 2020 medical care has fallen into the toilet bowl.  I don't think I mentioned it took me two days to get my appointment scheduled too! Had I treated patients in this manner, when I was employed in the medical field for  35 years, I would not have held the jobs I did. I respected my patients that saw the providers I worked for. I treated them  with total kindness and concern. Sadly, that hardly exists today. 

This guy has sat next to me as I tried to get this appointment scheduled.  Even he seems preplexed by it all! Aw...Mondays

This is the early A.M. at my house today, Spring is not here nor is it  blooming. The cold weather has worn out it's welcome. But the sunrise was magnificent, as always. 

Beth Russo let us know that her brother Bob passed away. He had an infect they could not contain. It is a very sad for the eartly loss of this once vibrant gentle man. But Beth knows she will see her big brother in heaven someday and that is where  her joy rubbed off onto me. Please remember Beth and her brother's wife and children in your prayers. We just sent him birthday cards.

I also have a birthday card request for a former blogger Suzanne. She has a milestone birthday and her daughter asked everyone to flood her mailbox with cards. Suzanne is a wonderful gal. She is precious to me and you may e mail me if you need her address and are interested in sending her a birthday wish. 

Sadness and Joy. Most days,  they bring out the absolute best in most everyone I journey along the road of life with.

Love is...quiets my heart every single day and has for over 46 years since the day I first met my husband on March 9, 1976. He was moving around a lot back than but we ended up together 7 years later and neither one of us has one regret about it all.

Finally, another Sparks to start off the week. 

Here is to having a wonderful new week. I spent the weekend cooking and baking so we have a bounty of good things to eat. Enjoy your blessings and remember to keep counting them. I hope you all have a wonderful evening.

Sorry you had such trouble with your appointment. I've always gotten these two together. It's never been an issue. We has Sutter Health and they are great. I hope this never changes.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Love and hugs. ♥

How sad about Bob's passing. I had sent him a prayer card from The Passionists. Please email me at with Suzanne's address. Please don't sacrifice your health because so many people these days are rude. My Sammy is always by my side like your Mister Kitty. XO

It's astounding to me that you can't get those two appointments together.

My heart aches for Bob's family, i will be praying for them.

Excellent Spark, one we should all remember.
