wow! today has been a roller coaster of emotions. horror, joy, tears, acceptence, fear, laughter...most all found right here at care2. yet, i'm drawn here to read and understand humanity...and to try to stop the horrors...to speak in a gentle way that makes us all look at ourselves and maybe rethink our thoughts.  myself included by the way. i love my children and am so proud of all they do. no, i do not always agree with them but then i'm not supposed to do that. i love my grandkids for just existing. this love is so grand. back in the day, (always wanted to use that phrase) things i'd read about not experiencing that kind of love until grandchildren was oh my gosh so true. they need do nothing more then exist. i love my dog. she is the light of my life. a big girl, both in height and width, and getting on in years. blind in one eye, hip problems, had heartworms when i got her from a crying lady who had to get rid of her, snores like thunder; i adore her and she me. she loves me even though my body crumbles and my minds goes away at times. i love the earth, the sky, and all inbetween...except i'm working on humans. they get me down alot. they really don't seem to know how to exist peacefully. and i don't like stress and anxiety. i find my intolerence growing. and my tolerence too! doesn't make sense but so be it, it is true. i yearn for sunny days when it's dreary and cold. i yearn for cooler days when it's hot. my love for mark twain (sc) and shakespeare compete with my love for stephen king and mystery science theater. i love the times the passed on let us know they are still with us. my music has changed to big bands and celtic though i can still get a charge with poison and whitesnake. i can't work anymore. but remembering the joy at  working with my hospice patients and all they showed to me cannot be replaced. i love colors! bold and beautiful. soft and hushed. each touches a chord. so  today, with all the ups and downs i can truly say i love my life.
