Look at these happy moments. [gallery]
My doggie was begging to go on a bike ride this evening. She is so patient and “neglected” that I thought I’d better take her out. I hooked her up to her leash, jumped on my orange beach bike and began to ride.
No matter what I do, the “Jerry situation” is always in the back of my mind. Everything I see seems to be relative to this situation.
So many of us, don’t know what we’ve got ’til it’s gone. (Hmm. I think that’s a song.) When I was in Ocrakoke a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help but notice how so many couples sat speechless with a bored look on their faces. Several times, I would see how the wife would look at her hubby with a longing look on her face while the man sat with a deadpanned look on his face. I WANTED TO SLAP THEM! AND SAY “DON’T YOU GET IT? YOU COULD LOSE EACH OTHER TOMORROW!” I even noticed how a woman was smiling and singing with the music and the man looked totally annoyed. What’s up with that?
As we finished our ride , I saw a couple standing on their driveway. He had dyed red hair and the grouchiest look on his face. Doesn’t he know that a smiling countenance is much more attractive than dyed red hair? The wife only smiled after I smiled at her. Poor people. You’re on vacation!
PEOPLE! Don’t you understand that life is precious. It could be gone tomorrow! Seriously! Tomorrow you could be wiped out!
If there is anything I’ve learned from this Alzheimer journey, it is that life is precious and should be lived to the fullest. Each day is another day to breath. Each day is another gift and there is no room for lack of gratitude. Each day is one more chance to say “I love you.” Surely, there is something to be thankful for. No matter how difficult it is! MAKE EACH DAY COUNT!
Sorry. Where is my grace?
