Goodbye, almost, to August

I can’t believe today is 8/28. I believe the Chinese believe that 8 is a lucky number.

I’m not feeling that lucky.

Yes, I get up in the morning, thank God, and stand on two feet, albeit one messed up ankle and tendon.I am blessed with two lovely fur-girls that I have to cherish every minute with because I KNOW how fleeting life is.Wednesday Jim and I will be married 14 years.I know a bunch of folks that didn’t see that amount of time together, either due to illness, death, or divorce.

I just have a little malaise at the end of a summer season, even though I bitch and moan about tourists,well, that hasn’t changed.It’s the little things.The sun coming down earlier.The end of the summer crops we planted in sight.Missing my folks for another season, and waiting to find out what is happening regarding my job.Life seems to be just a series of waiting and hurrying up, and then the time is gone. I truly am thankful for everything.

Oh, to make the clock go a wee bit slower.

Lousy is as lousy does..

It has not been a good week.

Found out a friend of mine who was 2 years older passed away suddenly last week. I saw her at the beginning of the month and she was in a helluva better shape than I am in.

The coughing got a little quiet but not much, as both Jim and I are fighting it and it makes for the wrong kind of melodies going on in our house.

A good friend of mine is scheduled for pancreatic cancer surgery on Monday and I know the odds…

and to top it all I am missing my Mom a lot..

It goes without saying it is Holy Week and the Easter Tridium, and my prayers are going overtime on so many levels.

The hard part is I remember the line from the movie “Rudy”…” Man asks for God to answer prayers, and God does, in God’s time.”
