Friday, April 30, 2010

Good morning to all.  Another day, thank you God.  Rain and wind for the next several days.  Of course I have to be out on Saturday during this weather.  Makes you wonder why it is always sunny when you have no place to go. lol 

I have been sad the last couple of weeks since getting news from my friend that he is dying.  There has been a range of emotions to numerous to list.  I pray every night for a miracle and won't give up.  This is the first time in my life that someone that I love dearly knows in advance they are dying.  The other deaths I have experienced were sudden so there was not time to think about those people no longer being here on earth.  I am not sure which is better.  I don't mean to sound morose but death is a fact of life, one that is not easy to talk about.  I write poetry and the day that I got the email from my friend, I wrote this poem.  It sums up the feelings that I experienced.


Unbearable palpable pain,
heart ripped from its mooring
in the safe harbor of your love.
Silent screams escape trembling lips,
tears erupt, cascade down my cheeks.

No breath will come,
only gasps between sobs,
hands pull hair,

moans of anguish won't quit.

It's not fair, you cannot leave,

you cannot die.
Never lied to me,
it must be true,
how could you!
We're supposed to be together forever,
now you are going away,

leaving me here alone.

Resignation, acceptance arrives,
takes its place in my soul.
Knowledge that we loved in another life
gives comfort, we will love again,
another time, wait for me, my darling.

Thursday In Indiana

Good morning to all.  I made it another day, thanks to God and that is a good thing.  Weather today is forecast to be in the 70's and windy with rain for the next several days.  Of course that changes quickly.  I found my niece on Facebook and we reconnected after several years.  She is a grandmother now.  That is so hard to believe. (smiles).  Rachelle and her husband David are taking the entire family to Florida for vacation this week.  Makes me wish I was on that trip with them.  Speaking of Facebook, I still have not really conquered this site. lol  For some reason I have a mental block in learning how things on there work.  But never fear, if I keep poking around the site, I may overcome it.  I will not give up until I do. lol  That's about all that I have to say today, kind of boring I know but that is what is going on with me now.  See you tomorrow with more boring things.

It's Wednesday, April 25th, 2010

Thanks to God, I have another day.  I also have allergies back in full force.  There was something on the news recently that this year was the worst for allergies and I have to agree with that.  Mine have been really active so far and I am ready for them to be gone.  We have some kind of trees around here that leave a fine yellow mist on everything in sight and they must be partially responsible for some peoples, including mine, allergies.  This is just another reason I can add for moving back to Arizona or someplace where there aren't so many things to irritate allergies.  Enough of that for now. 

I have found that as I grow older sleep comes at a premium.  Sleeping an entire eight hours without waking up two or three times is out of the question and sleeping in for me mean not getting up until 5AM. lol  Makes for a long boring day.  No, I don't take naps during the day, don't watch TV in bed.  I do all the things suggested to ensure sleep but for some reason they're not working.  Now that I have bored you to tears, it is time for me to get a cup of coffee, half caf, none of the real thing for me. lol  See you tomorrow.

Good Tuesday Morning

Glad to say that I made it another day and that God saw fit to let me wake up once more.  Not being morose, just thankful.  Another day to sit back and watch the ever changing weather here in Indiana.  There is a saying around here that if you don't like the weather, wait a minute for it will surely change.  Our temperatures have been bouncing up and down like a ping pong ball for the last few weeks and this year the allergies are terrible.  I managed once again to have a cold and a sinus infection, in fact it happened twice since January.  The last bout lasted about 5 weeks and nothing would help, it just had to run its course.  During this time, I figured out that I should buy some stock in Puffs because between my husband and I, we used 7 boxes of them in a two week period.   Yes, I managed to pass the cold to him.  Okay, enough of that for now.

I have decided that I will try to post a little something every day, no matter how boring it might be. lol  It can be my dairy of sorts so sorry to say, you're stuck with me once again.  Until tomorrow, have a good day (I really do mean that.)

It's Been A Long Time

Hello to the world.  I didn't realize that it had been over a year since I posted anything.  Not much going on in my life right now other than it is filled with sadness.  A dear friend, a man I love is dying and there is nothing I can do to stop that other than pray for a miracle.  Believe me, I have been praying and prays from others can't hurt so remember Sylvia's friend.
