It has been such a long time since I signed in to WP. I have been away from home. In early January, I got a call from my friend in Mississippi that Eunice our mutual friend was not doing well. You might recall that she was diagnosed with a very rare cancer of her adrenal gland. I had gone to be with her three different times last year between January and April and had helped her out. Now, apparently the cancer has spread all over.
So I was with her, and took care of her. Took her for Radiation treatments and appointments with the medical oncologist on a daily basis. She has lost her appetite, and so it was difficult to try and feed her foods that she could tolerate. Fortunately she has a niece and nephew who check up on her daily over the phone.
I returned on Sunday and since then I have been busy with my Xanga blogs; copying and pasting into my Word Documents. It is not easy to do one frikking post at a time. The high point of that though, is the fact that I had forgotten how much I had written about my grandchildren as they were growing up. Some of those posts were hilarious and I sat here and just laughed and laughed.
I was also surprised to see some beautiful poetry (if I may say so myself), written by yours truly. Oh My!!
Here are three of my thoughts that I had posted on different days. I cannot believe I wrote them!
I see dew drops on the tips of leaves, reflecting the million colors of the sun’s rays. Would that my life be full of dancing lights!! (Oct.27th 2007)
I wander through nameless lands…. you smile! I pursue the vision that eludes me. It seems I pursue the golden stag. I have no care in my heart. (Oct 26th 2007) And,
Mother, you sang to me in the ecstasies of my life, and I forgot to sing to you. (Oct. 22nd 2007)
I cannot believe I wrote them. Wow! Not bad for an old lady!
Hopefully I will get my blogs taken care of soon, and will be a regular on WP.
Have a great weekend.
