Last week, I visited a good friend who is in hospice. I wish things were different. It was good to spend time with him and be there to express our love for him. They have bird feeders in front of every window in the hospice house, which was a lovely way to see constant 'wild life' from his window.


Many things in my life to be thankful for. I have been feeling surprisingly good and very able. I juggle. Even if I drop balls, I smile and pick them up, or just leave them for a while. And if they break, I pretend I didn't like that colour ball anyway, and life is good again.

Hey Karen :)

Hospice is such a wonderful resource, They do so much good for so many.

I love your outlook. I'm going to have to remember that if I drop a ball I'm juggling that it's not the end of the world.

Karen, You are so poetic, it's lovely to read. Please don't ever lose that. As for appreciating all that we have, living in the Upper Valley helps, where we are surrounded by so much beauty in the place that we live and in the people that we meet. Thanks for sharing your wonderful outlook, it's inspiring.
