Deserted

My optimism has deserted me of late. Part of it is the culture we live in. I hate violence, racism and ignorance and it appears to be rife in this administration. It has reduced me to being hateful as well. I never dreamed that we would have children caged up without their parents and without thought to their psychological and social well being. I cannot fathom how our domestic terrorists can take out school children and kill people who do not worship as they do. I saw Nazis defeated once and here we are with that evil and cancerous growth sprouting again. We speak out and hope for change. Jose and I walked this morning at 6 a.m. and the roses are blooming, warm wind was blowing but it did little to change my mood. Usually the natural world is an instant happiness boost. Probably part of it is the fact that my favorite brother-in-law has developed a nasty cancer on top of his head. It is called Cutaneous lymphoma and the radiation and chemo are having a terrible effect on his brain. My sil is tiny and fragile and they live in a big house in the country where lawn mowing takes a whole day. Their daughters are very supportive but cannot do all that needs doing. I know firsthand about the care needed for an invalid husband who is not able to help around the house and I don't think Nova is as strong as I am. Sorry for being such a downer today. Somehow it helps to write about it.

Thank you Marta. You are an inspiration. I am following Maria's Safari
because it is the thing I always wanted to do, not that I thought I would be doing it vicariously!

Jeri, indeed there is much evil in the world. Fortunately, there are people like you and others who sweeten the pot and bring good things into the mix. All is not lost, as there are some wonderful people in your corner. I hope I'm one of them.

Life just sucks sometimes. But nobody said it would be fare.

No, it is not fair. Did you find Buster? Our pets are healing too.

Awe, I am sorry lady!!! I understand the world being a complete downer lately, it REALLY is terrible all the crap happening on the daily in the US. This probably isn't helping.
Can you plan a cruise to get your mind off of things?

Ted is not in good enough shape to make a cruise worthwhile and that is part of it all. Travel has always been one of our favorite things. We may take a road trip after he has cataract surgery in July. I am missing New Orleans.

Jeri, I surround you in Light, Love, Care, and Support across the miles. My prayers are flying to your brother-in-law. My heart understands your response of sadness and frustration in today's disturbed world. Please take best care of yourself, my sweet friend....
