This might be a rough time for many of you. Do what you feel you need to do to get through it. Remember, someone is here almost all the time to talk to you.

Hey everyone, I had to share this one with you and this is why. I was teary-eyed while driving a few days back feeling sorry for myself and this song came on the radio and I have to say I found myself smiling and singing to it which shocked my sandals right off my feet. I went home and found it on Youtube and then burned it on disc and I play it when gardening and I'm singing, working faster and jiggling my bootie to it (ugly sight) and lo and behold some people came down my sidewalk and do just what some of these people are doing ... arms up, some fancy steps and smiling up at me. NOTE: Although we are grieving please pay close attention to some of the people in the video; some are alone, a wheel chair, all shapes and sizes of people and even one young woman walking on the beach alone and obviously not all that happy, but he managed to get a smile out of her with this song. I hope with all my heart this tune sticks in your heads and brings a smile to you every so often.
Carol.... Hi I'm doing ok thx for asking but I know what you mean getting tired especially with granddaughter, but how nice. Nice you & Marsha live near each other! It's been hot here too! Yes, I think you will like the movie & the book I sure did for everyone who didn't read the movie is called "The Shadowlands" w/anthony hopkins famous professor in England Oxford & Cambridge he also wrote many children's books even though he never had children!! of course he was one himself!! LOL!!! I just admire him so much.. he passed away around 1960 & still has such influence! Google his name that's where I learned alot about him he & his brother were roomates & he also took care of his buddy's mom after the War (his buddy got killed) & he promised him he would take care of his mother
his buddy's mom actually lived with him in a huge house hows that for taking good care of her??
Theresa .. all counseling is free from me. Now if I could only take my own advice I could be doing better, but trying hard to center myself like we are all doing. I find I'm either nil of energy or suddenly I race around like a demented elf here and there and I am practicing slowing down yet getting done what I have to do. I don't like feeling dependent on others either and I think all of us feel that way. I find I am getting more independent all time and so will you. I'm proud of you for keeping as busy as you are doing. Keep a journal every day and you'll begin to realize just how much you are doing during your time of grieving and it will shock you.
Theresa .. I am so sorry you fell and that's something all of us have to watch. I'm in the same situation you are because if I hurt myself there is one to look after me either. Not a nice feeling.
It's normal to have bursts of energy and then we find ourselves racing around doing far too much. Please try to pace yourself and don't take on too much at one time. Look after YOU!
Carol ... It's been a lot hotter where you live, but even where I am it's so hot I've been 'flashing' the on-coming traffic just to catch a breeze and it's one ugly scene! Look for me on Global News! LOL Suppose to be cooling down by tomorrow so here is hoping .. me widdle bawd can't take much more of this. LOL
Hope all is well with you.
Love & Hugs
