How blessed we had men to defend our country - how sad they had too. It is one of those days for me.
War - what is it good for.
We need more than one day.
I want to share an e mail I got today from an older gentleman, he sometimes reminds me of my dad. It made my heart swell. I hope he does not mind, I don't care - lol - He IS an inspiration! He was to me. It is why I initially took the time to write.
"I want you to know that it was your request to me to write a Guest post that changed my life for the better. But for you I wouldn’t be here today. When you made that request I was having a real hard time with the blog. I was ready to pack it all in and say to hell with it. That was the first realization I had that I was actually being read and making a good impression on someone who counted. Thank you for that.
The blog and Facebook have become my life and believe it or not my depression has eased to where I actually think I’m happy. I sat in a room for ten years and looked at what was happening in the world and I wanted to scream and I had not one friend to talk to. That has changed dramatically and in the past two years I think I have finally managed to vent most of the anger I had bottled up.
I have rediscovered writing and I’m enjoying it and I intend to do a lot more on a lot of other topics that I have opinions on and as you know I have no lack of opinions: most of them negative. LOL .
All I have to do is look at the future and what lies ahead for the world and I see real rough times ahead in the next 50 years and I honestly think the world is doomed. The topics blossom: Life expectancy, old age, retirement, euthanasia, parents, do you want to have kids looking ahead at the climate changes, exploding population, diminishing resources, food shortages and escalating prices coming in the future. I wouldn’t and young people should think about what is ahead for them
I got my ass out of my chair and I started exercising and I feel a real difference in my body. I was completely out of shape with no endurance at all. I couldn’t climb the 15 stairs up to our apartment without my legs shaking and quivering almost uncontrollably at the top , I couldn’t walk a block without pain and I had to stop three times in a block. This morning I lifted 17,100 # in a one hour work out, and still had energy for a fun two hours at the local pub getting signatures for the SensibleBC Referendum.
Georgia: I honestly believe that I owe you the life I have now found and I will be eternally grateful.
When you get a letter like that!? My day was awesome!
Then I signed on to Fb and found another. Talk about being blessed.
Remember those who, if not for them you would not be here today.
For those that are here - Say THANK you!
