Doin' My Best

Donate Here Flyer
Not sure about this cut and paste thing but it seems to have worked. Check out the link above. I have come across these ladies before and I admire their work. I do my own bit for charity although that consists only of giving money to various causes. I have actively helped charities, but not for some time. I feel a bit guilty rereading this because part of my initiative lately is to get back to doing the things I did before the problems with my legs started, and in this respect I haven't. Will have to give that one serious thought.
Instead of buying flowers for my mothers funeral I asked people to give a donation to the National Osteoporosis Society. Although pneumonia was her primary cause of death, severe osteoporosis was noted on the certificate. It doesn't kill by itself. It's the complications it brings that do the deed.
So, the next time you are feeling charitable have a think about these two causes. If you give a donation to either or both causes or give to another charity I hope you will feel the better for it. We have so much in the Western world and we don't appreciate it. Look kindly on those who are less fortunate. It could just as easily have been you.

Merry Christmas, M.

I hope the holidays can apply the appropriate amount of salve to all the wounds inflicted in recent weeks. The timing has been horrible. But you've new love in your life--that's always the first anesthetic. Good, I'm happy for you and may only good things in the New Year fortify your smile.

Here's to inner peace...always,

Happy Christmas, Martyne.

You might be right LK. I want to be alone on Christmas Day this year and I hope people will understand why,or at least respect it. I sure don't want to badmouth my mother. She gave me the gift of life and I am crying at the thought of this. I simply feel this would be a good time for me to have some solitude at a time I don't personally relish. Call me bah humbug, that is peoples prerogative to say so. A time for reflections about my position. I am sure I am never going to be a mother myself but it must be such a gift to create new life. I am actually jealous of such women. I have a creative nature and I hope this is reflected in my Blog. But given my relationship with Hester currently I doubt I will ever be a mother. I am not sad, I treasure what I have with her, and if this is the way my life is to go, so be it. Thanks for your concern and I wish you all the best with the "Mr Big" in your life. I want the best for you L.
