Sorry, it wasn't intentional.
Our darling dog, Hoss, was diagnosed with bone cancer. He was given a prognosis of about 3 months, but I feel that he will last longer. I hope and pray that I am correct.
My darling mother is living with/suffering from Alzheimers. It's a horrible disease with no cure. All we can do is be patient, kind and loving. And pray for her everyday. It's interesting how people think Alzheimer's is just forgetfulness. I did too to a certain degree. But, when we were all in the middle of it--my brothers, sisters, father--all of us--we realised that it is so much more than simple forgetfulness. It is so much more heart-breaking. And there is nothing any of us can do. Sad sad sad.
So, I guess I was on an unintentional hiatus. Blogging just seemed a little narcissistic at the time. I couldn't bring myself to sit at the computer and blog about anything. It all seemed so unimportant. But, then I realised that life goes on. Love goes on. So, I have rallied and am starting to see posts all around me. Hopefully you'll enjoy them too....
Hug your loved ones today. Everyday.
