Life Thoughts

I know we all spend days and nights thinking about the things that the Lord has put in our path and in the path of others.  Do we understand?  NOPE - usually not.
All we can do is appreciate each and every day and each and every moment.

I try not to put a lot of personal stuff on the blog - but many of you know that my oldest brother has been going through a huge health crisis.  His rehab stopped a while back (due to insurance), and now he is just residing in a nursing home.
Lately our visits have been met with him sleeping and not really being aware when we are there.  That has been hard.

Today was a GREAT day.  Ron was totally alert and awake and in a good mood.  We had a wonderful visit.  Basically I just tell him what is going on in life, and about our yard and all the critters.  He enjoys that.  This was the first really great visit in almost 3 weeks.
In spite of the fact that he can't speak - he really razzed me about my hair looking gray today!!!!!  Too funny. 

I thoroughly enjoy this type of day and cherish the moments.  I hope you each try to make the best of every day.  Stop and enjoy those silly moments with your loves, because some day those will be memories.

This little picture really resonated with me today.  I don't care about stuff.  I don't care what people think of me.  I care about my family and my friends and my fur babies.
I consider every one that reads my little blog my friends - I care about all of you.

Thanks for listening.  Take a moment today to hug someone and tell someone that you love them.
Love and happiness to you all.

    1. yes, precious indeed. Some days we just get so over whelmed in life that we miss those little moments.

  4. Allow me to add in my happiness for your happiness with your brother! And the whole post did and still does make me stop and value the people, not all the other stuff that distracts me. Thanks, Cheryl!
