Life, Death, And Being Truly Blessed a eight week summery

Ohboy, things have been "fun" in Febuary. And by fun I mean akin to having your teeth pulled whith out novicaine. On the plus side this is the first time in over twenty years that something horrible hasn't happened on Valitienes. The fifteenth on the other hand......... any way.
Basicly this is how things have been shipping up for me. I have been dealing with in the past 7 weeks 8 deaths, 2 major surgerys, 1 evictions, and one runaway teen. Luckly none of it has directly effected me. I have been helping others get thhere life back together cleaning there house putting up flyers, helping people deal basicly.
None of the death were of people I cared about, save two. but the people it did effect I care about greatly. Last weekend I was franticly trying to come up with 5 grand to send my niece and her mother to my ex brother-in-laws funeral. Now don't get me wrong I begrudged him pretty much everybreath he took. He decsided drugs and later his new family were more imortant than his wonderfuly talented artisic daughter. But still that was her father and she is not taking it well. Does anyone know how to help her cause I am at a loss. All I can think of is buying a heavy bag so she doesn't put her fist through a wall.....again.
But their is good news. I am mantianing my weight a.k.a. not gaining. And the only "major" thing that happened to me was a scheduled outpatient surgery. on the twentith. Nothing serious I just hand a L.E.E.P. done. Guys ask your female friends what that is. I am already up and about. and feeling fine. I am told I am funny when coming off the anistesia. I lost all since of taste for a couple of days though. What's the point of being treated to pizza by your sister when you can't even taste it? lol
I have had alot of things happen around me and luckly nothing to me. I have been sick on and off all winter but nothng major. I am truly blessed in that aspect. I can be their for the people I care about. And be their shoulder when they need it. Plus the loving people here at S.P. have been wonderful.
I have my books and my art. And of course my evil little budda belly of a cat. (He lost a pound!!!) poeple looking at my life might see nothing special but I am truly blessed. the lord and lady has given me what I need, and the good sense to enjoy it. I come upon times like this and instead of getting deppresed I am thankful. Melody may have died, but she died on HER terms. Joker and Cal may have died but now their at peace. The runaway which will remain nameless was found in under 72 hrsI and was not harmed. And I was able to be there for others as they were for me when my world fell apart.
Life IS about the journey people. You can complain about the loss of your "luggage" or you can injoy the little shops you go to to replace the items. I am gonna injoy the shops and feel blessed for each day I have.
Take that Murphy and your stupid laws to!
