(I tried so hard to put the video in, but couldn't get it to work, I will have another go another day when I am less tired, but please do click the link and listen to the words)
It is a rubbish time right now, but a good time too, learning about myself, good things and not so good. I am incredibly impatient at times, and yet I am learning patience. I am also learning things about others too.
Mostly what I learned is the way that others can act with such grace, despite what they are going through. Gosh, if only we could be more graceful in our dealings with others and in our lives.
The good news is that in a sense I have been more graceful since my visit last week, because I haven't been attacked by any more anti rain weapons (love that term Red Setter!) and I am wearing flat shoes too - no heels!!
Still managed to spill my lunch down my front today though, drive the wrong way into the petrol station at the motorway services and nearly walk off with someone else's credit card too - can you imagine how awful that would have been!! Oh, and horror of horrors, set the personal attack alarm off on the phone of the Lady I was visiting. It shrieked and wailed like nothing I have ever heard and who knew that phones could have personal attack alarms. Oh the shame!!! At least I didn't set her alarm off for if she needed a nurse!
They had a raffle today, I didn't win a prize, but at least it meant that I didn't win the basket of dodgy looking toiletries that was left as the last item to be claimed either! No one seemed to want it. I think that it went to some poor man in the end, I cannot imagine what he would do with the contents of the basket.
Thank you for your comments and understanding at this time, your words and thoughts are so appreciated, more than you might know.
I am sorry that these posts are not perhaps the most cheering things you have ever read, or perhaps they seem irreverent, but Lady is someone very close to me (as is Third Person). I have to find the funny side and perhaps the black humour in all of this as if I don't I will be a sobbing mess in the corner no good to anyone. In the last six years we have had pretty much a continual stream of ill health and worse in our friends and family and as I will perhaps someday explain more about, if I don't look at it in this way I cannot look at all. Please don't be offended though.
Thank you again for your kindness. Best wishes to you and yours.
