The Basket Lady
“Ah,” a day resplendent with rays of sunshine; and how we do so need that boost of nature’s positivity right now.
Let’s delve right into a “symbolic” basket of perfection.
I’d like to share a poem written by Virginia Borman Grimmer that eloquently expresses what Perfection is to her, so enjoy.
God put perfection in the rose,
The tiny baby’s sweet pink toes;
He pressed it in the lilac bloom
With rare perfume to grace a room.
God put perfection in the skies
With rainbows after rain’s demise;
He set the butterfly on wing
And made the meadowlark to sing.
God put perfection in the leaves
With flowers wild and stately trees;
He made the oceans crystal clear
And in the woodlands placed the deer.
God put perfection everywhere,
In days so brilliant, golden fair;
We need but pause, observe, recall,
The perfect gifts God gives to all!
Right now is the perfect time to extend a very special thank you to Dr. Petrona Manasseh.
Today, the world seems to be moving at a break neck pace especially when it comes to getting medical care. The “system” that a doctor has to wade through to care for a patient is incomprehensible to those of us who are sick or in pain when we need to be seen by a medical provider right away.
Recently, I had a medical condition that required a visit to the Swift River Health Clinic and everyone from the front office staff to the nurses that assisted me with my care were professional and kind.
I’ve had my share of out-patient doctors visits over the course of my lifetime but I’ve never had a doctor call me at home not once but twice to check on me and to make sure that I was “getting better.”
Dr. Petrona Manasseh ought to receive an award (I’m sure she’s getting stars in her crown) for being the epitome of a dedicated healer.
Thank you to the following angels in training for a job well done and for a kindness shown to:
Jennifer Kreckel; Rumford’s Hannaford Pharmacy Dept.; Brett Frey; Dr. Jeffrey Leonards; Melissa Williams, MBL Accounting; Donna Landry; Irene Haynes; Rhonda Shaw; Rhonda Ouellette; Norman Robichaud; Bethel Animal Hospital office staff and Dr. Gorrell.
Kindness not only counts but it adds up!
We miss you every day, Dot Sanchas. Until then, smile and live in the present.
