He Is My Hero

 My 2 weeks of bed rest are over.  Tomorrow it's back to work for me.  I'm not real excited about returning to work... but I'll have to admit I'm very excited about returning to life!!

I'm not going to get into the details of my bed rest.  Ugh!  No one should have to listen to such stuff...  

But this wonderful man endured, and he is my hero!!

I love you Gary!   
Thank you for being here for me.

And my Gracie.  I saw so many emotions through her eyes in the last couple of weeks.  There was fear, confusion, sadness, and finally joy.  Dogs are without a doubt 'man's best friend'.

And who wouldn't feel better just seeing this smiling face.  This picture was taken last week when she was here...

 She snuggled up beside me on the recliner today and said, "Grammy, can I play Barbie Dream Castle with you when you get better?"  She melts my heart.

And then there was you, my blogger buds.  You have comforted me, prayed for me, gave me good advice, and made me Laugh out Loud.  I am blessed and thankful to know you!  

Okay, So What is Gracie's emotion here?  


  1. Hi Bobbi... I think Gracie is having a little talk with God and thanking Him that you are all right... I am so happy to hear you are doing better, sorry you have to go back to work though!... your hubby sounds like a saint!... much love to you, your hubby and sweet Gracie... xoxo Julie Marie PS Your little granddaughter melts my heart too!

  2. It's great that you have such a super hero! Having a loving dog helps loads too!

    Gracie looks like she is questioning something - like is the Jack-in-the-box going to pop up or not? Or is Daddy going to throw that toy?

    Best wishes on your first back to work day, tomorrow! Take it easy!


  3. Gracie looks like she is anticipating a treat or a toy! So glad you are feeling better and I know you will be glad to get out and about again. Thanks to the good care from your husband and Gracie, you are on the mend now. I hope you won't be real tired. Take good care of yourself and look forward to playing with your little granddaughter!

  4. Gracie's emotion is puzzlement and sorrow because you're going back to work and she thought you were always staying home now!! Rissa's smile is melting MY heart, it is so big and wonderful!! It could melt an iceburg! It's good to see the sparkle in your pretty eyes again!

  5. Oh yay dat da bed rest is overs but now you has to go back to work and I won't has you to play withs...dang! But at least it's all overs (kinda like da squirrels life I found in my yard...bwhahahahaha...sorry, bad joke). da man!!!!!! Thanks fur all you do fur sweet Ms. Bobbi, we loves her to pieces.

    What a beautiful little girl. Her could nake anybuddy haves a better day. By da way, my girl just loves Barbies too but, I am purty fond of their heads....and legs.


  6. She wants you to stay home with her, forever!!!! Take it easy at work now!

  7. Glad you're feeling better. Love the thoughtful dreamy expression on Gracie.

  8. Actually gracie is eyeing up our recliners.She's waiting for one of us to get up so she can enjoy the already warmed seat..

  9. Your heart overflows, doesn't it? When I had my surgery (coming up on 2 years ago this month), my husband did it all and took such good care of me. My heart just ran over with love and gratitude -- and, wonderfully, it has stayed that way. Adversity does tighten the bonds, sometimes, doesn't it.

    Have a good day at work!

  10. Glad to hear you are feeling better. It will take a little while to get back in the work groove again. Gracie will be one happy girl to have mom back playing with her. She is such a sweet companion and obviously totally devoted to you.

  11. Bobbi, aren't we all thankful for wonderful partners.....couldn't do it without them! Hip hip hooray for them!!!!
    Welcome back to reality and have a great day back at work....take it easy though.

  12. We are sorry to hear you have been less than well but joyous you are getting back to your routine.

    You have a loving family and puppy,
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  15. I'm so glad to hear you're doing better now, though I understand about your wanting to stay home.

    I'm sorry I so rarely comment. For some reason, your blog is still loading terribly slow for me. I do regularly read your posts, but I read them in my Google Reader, where I can zip right through them. I'm not computer savvy enough to know why my computer comes to such a standstill when I come here, but I will continue to occasionally bite the bullet and come here to comment. :-)

  16. I hope you had a great first day back at work!
