I got more than my daily dose of oxygen today when I went with Vladika Lazar to pick up my new pain killing tablets. How else can I describe the air as being fresh and invigorating, leading me to feel much younger once again and this, in turn, enabling me to be optimistic and rejoicing in God’s mercy and compassion. Among other things, I noticed a few rose buds opening up despite the fact that it is the middle of December, in addition to a few struggling geraniums and snapdragons. I think that I shall stop this diary entry right now, for I have lost it twice already and, as they say, I do not want to push my luck too afar. So, good night until tomorrow night.
