It is hard. But how do you explain the loss of a child. I know it is not the same thing. If there is nothing they can do go someplace else. I am about to do that with Alex. I'm losing respect because of so much memory loss. I'm either weird or understood. I know my meds, what they do, and the affects they have on me and my son. And in my opinion...Stay away from Doctors that think that they are Gods. I deal with pediatric bone surgeons for his scoliosis. I took Alexander to have his back x-rayed and the snotty DR. told me next time You will get the x ray where I want to. He's just a poop. He probably cant boss his wife around, so he tried with me. LOL wrong person. Just speak your mind honey. Use the truth and don't take meds if they don't work. Communicate. Love ya, Teresa

Nobility is about being better than you used to be.”
Dr. Wayne Dyer
A Pastor friend of mine while I was working as an RN gave me a book; "Angels Everywhere". It contains stories of miracles and messages, some people have written in there stories of their own Angel encounters. At the very back of the book is a poem, that I photcopied and to this day carry in my wallet. It gives me encouragement as I need it and this is the perfect place to share it:
Today I stumbled and once again
Was lifted up by an unseen hand.
What comfort and joy that knowledge brings.
For I hear the whisper of angel wings.
The guardian angels God sends to all
To bear us up when we stumble and fall.
Trust Him, my friend, and often you'll hear
The whisper of angel wings hovering near.
--Author unknown

A friend is someone who will stop you from doing something THEY know is wrong, but would bail you out of jail anyway. A "best friend" is someone who would be sitting right next to you in that jail cell saying wasn't that a blast?!!?
Some days you're the statue, some days you get to be the pigeon!

Walk tall carry a big stick and use if ya gotta!!

Today is a dare to win.

Today it's up to you to create the peacefulness you long for.
