This and That..............

I have seven drafts saved that I've tried to post, and still I haven't been able to get anything out...Nothing inspires me anymore...It seems my mind is somewhere else..So many things have happened in the past six months and most of the time I walk around in a daze.....This is where it would be nice to live on a farm, I could at least have a picture of a cow to post....I could write about the drawer full of wrinkle creams I noticed this morning while putting on my make-up.... six different kinds...Everything from Oil of Olay to something I can't pronounce, but judging by my reflection, I should demand a refund....Or how I've just given up and let the squirrel's win (sometimes putting a little extra out just for them).....
The three enormous trees are still laying in the creek, the county came out and took pictures but that was all...I guess they were serious when they said we would have to use our crane to get them out....However,we are the average two car family...Not two car and a crane family...So as far as I'm concerned, the eye sore can stay there....Maybe I'll plant some flowers around in the spring...Who knows.....
Winter is coming and my parents are still without a place to live, they've finally gotten the help of an attorney...Hopefully one who wont be afraid of a major gas company....It's very sad to see them the way they are, the stress of it all has really taken it's toll...My Daddy was diagnosed with early stages Alzheimer's in the Spring, this has really caused his condition to worsen...Everything from getting lost while in the mountains....His Mountains....To forgetting a
conversation between he and I a few days earlier...Reminders of things yet to come...I do wonder if there will be a day when my Daddy will look into my eyes and not see me....Hopefully this situation can get solved quickly and they can get back to some sort of a normal life...and the stress level for all of us can ease up...
It will be hard to watch them destroy the home of my Grandparents and the place I grew up, but to have my parents somewhere safe and this mess over with,will be worth it....And hopefully ease the stress from all of us....
Longing for happier days, but knowing they are ahead,
The Queen of the Broken Palace......

You've really been through a rough patch. I know it probably doesn't help much right now, but know that you have a lot of folks right now who are wishing you and your family the best. Bad times come, but they also GO, and just hang in there........please.
Hugs,
Sue

There's an Inuit expression that I keep close at hand: "Some days you eat the bear. Some days the bear eats you."
I wish you resolution. And letters to the editor of the local papers sometimes have a way of reaching those who need to hear you.
Good luck!

Tears may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning my dear sweet sister. I think Chas said it well,"When the world hands out lemons, make lemon meringue pie". We will endure and so shall our parents.

Wishing you much happier days. I too need a refund on face creams. Some days I look in the mirror or see a photo and can't quite believe that person is me.

Hi My Sweetie! It feels like your wonderful sparkle is fading slightly. There's alot about getting old that is just not fair but, life doesn't give us an easy path to walk. I pray that your mom and dad get settled soon. I know Uncle Paul is sad for them and to know his home will be gone soon. Stand tall my love. We have a way of getting up each day to face it head on. Giving up is not in our soul. I know better things are yet to come. Give me a call if you get a chance. I miss you!!!! Love Aunt G.

You got me crying.....I can hear your pain(s).
I have had a rough few weeks. This past week: I must look like h*ll because Don asked me if I wanted to play hooky from church Sunday. I told him "not really". This morning, I was about in tears, just with him talking to me about something simple. He brought it up again ( hooky thing ). He said that I look like a need a break. Sleep in...rest....Sunday should be a day of rest, not rushing around like we do each Sunday.

I wish I could give you a big bear hug and some hot tea.

Hugs from NC,

Linda
