~ Quiet Time ~

Life is wayyyyy too short....and very precious. Each day is truly a magnificent gift we are given.  I try so hard not to take it for granted but we're all human and we really can't help but do it. We make plans for next year, next month, tomorrow, this afternoon ~ you name it.  Two of my long-term friends....from high school days & that's a heck of a long time!....passed away. One about 10 days ago and one yesterday.  My cousin passed away on Saturday.  They all had health problems and I know intellectually that they are in a better place.  It's just the human factor of missing them, remembering all the good times, the laughter, jokes, events ~ treasured memories for sure.

I think I need a bit of quiet time ~ maybe a couple of days, maybe longer.   I just don't have anything else to post or share right now.  I so appreciate your reading this and hope that you'll hang in there with me!

Hugs to you my friend. It is sad to see those that we grew up with and loved as friends pass from this Earthly world. And I know there is another better place but it is still hard to have them gone from this one. Take the time you need, we'll be here when you get back. xo Diana

Pat, I too am so very sorry to read of your losses. That is a lot on you. Yes, you do need some time to think and reflect. I have already lost two of my best friends. They have been gone for several years already..dying in their very early 50's. It's hard, isn't it? Thinking of you, friend.

It is so hard to lose people we love. They are better off with the Lord and we are better off for having known them. Reflect upon happy times with them and hurry back soon.

Yes my Dr. gave me meclazine too. I took one yesterday....boy I was relaxed and slept good. I'm not dizzy anymore but I still have some nausea....hate it.
