Good Day to You All

Friends, I did have the opportunity to speak to Beth through her sister's speaker phone two days ago and it was an honor to be allowed to do that.  Her sister is most kind.

It's difficult for Beth to talk as there is a physical difficulty.  So while she does speak a bit it is not much.  I got to tell her I love her and she said she loved me and my son as well.  That she would pray for us from heaven.  It broke me in two.  But that is alright.  I am grateful to hear her and speak to her.

I told her all of her friends love her and are praying for her.  I did not ask her sister if she is reading this blog or not but she was in the beginning of this journey so I imagine she and Beth know what you have commented.

Just wanted to let you know that I did get to speak a little and I will try again in perhaps a day.

Beth...An Update

Dearest friends of Beth Marie,

I have been told by Beth's sister that I may let you know that Beth is in hospice now.

We bloggers from MSN Live Spaces are a family.  One of our own whom we have known and cared about, Beth Marie, has little time left with us.  Her family are gathered; and we who consider her a member of our own extended families are gathered too, with tender caring love for Beth and her family.

I love you Beth although you will not be able to read this.  May our Lord wrap His arms around you and steady your journey back to Him.  Love and peace be yours, precious dearest friend.

A Rainy Day in Tennessee. (What Else is New)?

Raining, raining, raining.  And raining.

It made me laugh when I read in our local ABC news affiliate's web page someone asking our weather man why it rains in east TN every day!!?? I have wondered that as well.  I have often said here and in person that we will get maybe 2 full days of sun.  then about 7-9 straight days of rain.  No, each day is not a gully washer.  But it will rain either hard or a sprinkle but it will rain and it will be overcast.  It is soooo gloomy.

Here are three pictures taken a week ago with no sun (which, bright sun is not needed for pictures) but windy.  Every blinking' day is also windy.  Just wind wind wind rain rain rain.

Two of the pictures are slightly out of focus due to the constant movement the flowers had on their slender stems.  One, the magenta tulips are a lot out of focus also because of wind but I don't care.  I LOVE these ladies!!!  I love the soft lack of focus.  I know..I'm cra-zee.

"The Wheel in the Sky Keeps on Turnin'......" (Journey)

It does indeed keep on turnin'.  "I don't know where I'll be tomorrow".   Journey.   There is no stopping the world, no stopping any type of progress.  There is only continuing.  That is, a continuance of anything.  Nothing is singular in this regard.  Time and circumstance is, to not coin a phrase, as the world turns in human terms.

Why did I start that?  I was thinking of friends.  Thinking of events and thinking of persons and how it all fits together.  It's a Thursday night.  I may as well.

Regarding my friend Beth, our friend Beth, I am awaiting word from her sister to indicate I may blog or Beth's sister may blog herself for Beth.  We will see as time passes.

Thank you all my friends here and hers.  It was deeply appreciated that you commented and lifted Beth up.  She knows.

Much love to all.

 My very new grandson.  ❤

Awardie and Thank You

I was given an award that I truly appreciate.  It is meaningful to me here at my "human" blog and  a vote of confidence in me from a dear friend, McGuffy Ann Morris  whom I have long enjoyed getting to know in her blogs and in some emails as well.  The award is called The Very Inspiring Blog Award.  She understands me.  That is quite a feat.  And very appreciated.

Thank you Annie.  I would like to nominate Marks Mews, and the kittie's Daddy's blog, Cave Bears Lair too.  Mark is a multi-faceted Cat daddy and a loving one to the three cats.  And a fascinating man as well.  He shows us glimpses every now and again of what he is made of.  Well worth visiting.  You'll be back.  And like me, Mark OR his kitties either one have opinions, and neither are  hesitant to tell it like it is.  Please enjoy the awardie Mark.

Happy Easter

A special meaningful day today for many of us.

Happy Easter friends!  I am fortunate to have an extra son here in town.  All three within 15 miles of one another.  That's really great for ME1  :-)  Man, I am on a diet whether I like it or not and there are times when it just ain't easy.  I do NOT like salads at all.  BUT I am having one each noon but with added chunk chicken to it..makes it more palatable.  The first 24 hours I lost a lot of water weight.  That wasn't fun in the middle of the night!  Sigh.  Had to get up. I never get up.  Sure did that first night and hit about every fire hydrant (figuratively speaking) the rest of that day.   The other meals I am eating small portions of foods I like.  I have a goal of 20 pounds.

Katie is getting the short end of the stick these past several days but things will settle for her before long.  This below is why.  A tiny usurper of her domain.

Meanwhile, I am not cooking today.  The son who is staying with me and I made a decision to eat out.

I just wanted you to see one of my tulips although it turned out too large in the header.  I thought it would display better than that.  But you got the point.  :-)

I also wanted those of you who allow it-- to wish you a Happy Easter.
