It was a beautiful morning here in Morgan County.  I'm not doing so well.  I haven't heard from my daughters in months so I haven't seen my grandchildren.  The whole situation is tearing me apart, but I have to accept it so I don’t do something stupid.  I feel like I died with David sometimes.  I am also fighting Covid for the 4th time.  On the upside, I have food, clothing and shelter.  Richard and I are back together and we are stronger now that we worked through our problems together.  We both lost our spouses during the pandemic so neither one of us are complete anymore, but we have love for one another.  I happen to believe love covers a multitude of sins.  My MS seems to be in remission, and my other health problems come and go.  I did spend two weeks in Cookeville recently at my sisters.  It’s been over a year since anyone came to visit me here.  I am sure there are about ten people getting a laugh from my sorrows, but in time God will win the war.  I pray all is well with my readers.  

Much Love

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
