Shadows and Light

I am amidst the frenzy of pre-trip preparation. I am generally taken for granted, most of the time, but when I'm going to be away, they all realize what I do .I'm doing Laundry...all day. I cooked a big pot of chili yesterday, knowing that it would be better, tomorrow.

My head, desperately needs a vacation. Just when I adjust to some aspect, a more tragic, or dramatic scenario unfolds. This time it is a tragic one.

It seems that three, out of a siblings five children have tested positive for a genetic disease that their mother is currently in a nursing home, existing with. They are assured of an equally painfull, debilitating death. Sounds like lots of fun, dosen't it?

I have recently become quite close with two of the three siblings. I am blown away by this whole thing. At the same time, it depresses me greatly. I need to be a better relative, and friend. Life can be so complicated.

So hopefully, my week away, will put some joy back in my life...at least for a little while.

Just letting you know that I enjoy your blog and am very appreciative. I will keep reading along. I've marked you as one to watch. Thank you for sharing even your pains and frustrations here. I'm starting to think of you as a friend, even though you don't know me. I am starting to care for you as if you are someone I meet for coffee, to hear how things are going, and although I can't do much to help... am there to listen, to touch your hand... just be there with you a moment before you go back to carry on. ---Pups
