Beauty Day 71

Find one beautiful thing every day and take a photo of it.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

Beauty Day 71 Blood Pressure

I’m paranoid about blood pressure

my mom was on a million pills before she died

I watched her sleep her life away

blood pressure pills among them

not me…

I’ll die of cause wide awake

but they scare you with the blood pressure thing

stroke

silent killer

and they pursue you

and make you get a double check

again

and again

every time you go for a simple office visit

my own machine shows wide variations

in an upward-leaning graph

so I bit the bullet

convinced I needed medication

it’s for the kids I said

so they wouldn’t have to deal with

my stroke

this resignation must have calmed my nerves

’cause when I had it checked today–

fully normal!

Woo-Hoo!

a jig a song and a wild Hallelujia!

right there in the parking lot

free of meddlesome pills

for at least another day

 

71-blood-pressure
