Thought for the Day

"Let today be a day where you take nothing for granted.
For life is fleeting, fragile and precious and can change on a whim.
Say all the things you really want to say to your loved ones today,
say the things you would regret should they pass on and your words remain unspoken.
Rejoice, for you and they are alive today -
and should you or them pass on to unknown shores, rejoice even more for you have a wonderful love story to tell."
- Jackson Kiddard

    Thank you for this. For me this is "right on".

My mother had a stroke last Saturday. She has suffered from Alzheimer's Disease for 12 years,spending the last 8 in a nursing home. She was released back to the home today. Up until last week she could still walk,but hasn't spoken for several years. Right side now paralyzed. She can still swallow,so that's something.

I just hope I made her proud.

"You simply have to put one foot in front of the other and keep going.
Put blinders on and plow right ahead."

    Agree about putting one foot in front of the other. Not so sure about the blinders part; we don't want to get run over by the crowd coming from the sides.
