God Bless the Caregivers

I just this morning, received word of the passing of a beautiful man. I met him while he and his wife tended to our Aunt in hospice not so long ago. He was a man full of the social graces and etiquette that one does not come across much anymore. His passing, his family’s loss, just as he planned to retire reminds one, yet again, of how fleeting life is. He and his lovely wife guided us through the journey and helped us cope with dementia, exhaustion, the vigil and the passing. All the time, he maintained a loving, reassuring exterior toward us and families on the same path.

One notable memory was his love for his roses and how well tended to they were. He worked hard all day in a very demanding technical environment then came home and pulled another shift assisting his wife with the care of elders. He often tended to his roses during this time too. They were quite beautiful, like him.  Rest in peace Dorin. Thank you for the care you gave.

Now You See It…..Now You Don’t

“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”  

John Bunyan,  The Pilgrim’s Progress, 1660

I give you the light, then it goes away. I give you the light, yes it goes away. Take the light. Share the light. Pass it on an on.

Oh Give Me a Hug………

Now! Joyous in the moment. Now while others wait, not near; while we need the love in time. Brief time… Momentary time…Come on give me a hug! I promise not to take more than the allotted love!

Full Bloom In The Morning Light

“The Beauty Of A Woman”

The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman Is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman
With passing years only grows.

Audrey Hepburn

Feverfew

Feverfew: medicinal herb, that is like a weed in my beds. Pretty enough in small doses. Supposedly helpful for migraine headaches.
