    “But this is the life that we’ve been given, and we do the best that we can…”

    I enjoy your writing so much. Far from depressing me, your enumeration and description of discomforts confirmed my own feeling that the best way to a full life is to acknowledge one pain at a time and then keep moving.
    On more than one occasion in my last three years of watching those I love dying, little things you have written have lifted my spirit just like those little Candlemas bells. Thanks.

      Thank you David. Your pictures on FB have been lifting my spirits too! Your latest from Louisiana have been just lovely. 🙂

      I definitely know that other people have rougher things than this going on, so that helps to keep things in perspective. I suppose I just wanted to give voice to what’s going on in my body so I could get it out of my head a little. 🙂

      Keep those pics coming, and stay warm if you can! *hug*
