ANOTHER DAY GONE
Well its been a while since I posted anything on here. Things have been going ok and Im really enjoying this beautiful weather here in western Kentucky. The colors were absolutely gorgeous this year, they just didnt last long enough because of all the rain we had a couple of weeks ago.But this past week has been so really nice. the temps in the the 60's and even low 70's during the day and 30's and 40's at night. Lots of beautiful sunshine and a nice breeze. Just wish this would last until the end of the year. For any of you who have never been to Kentucky I will tell you it is a really beautiful place all year round. Even the ice storm we had last Janurary was beautiful in its own way. Ive been feeling better since my last post. I went and got some shots for my neck pain and its helped a lot. Ironic as it is on the day I went for the shots my wife and I had stopped at a red light light on the way to the Pain Center when we were rear ended by a teenage driver who was not paying attention. Both of us had a little whiplash but not hurt badly so we continued to the pain center for my shots. Now Im dealing with the insurance company on fixing the wifes car. The accident messed up the rear bumper and it needs to be replaced. Over 600.00 for that little fender bender. No wonder our insurance rates are so high for all of us. That was the first wreck Ive been involved in since 2004.And even though no one was hurt it once again got me to thinking of just how fragile this life is. If this driver had been going real fast the collision could easily have killed all of us. I mean one second just sitting waiting for a light to change and then wham it all turns to blackness! Thats how quick ones life can come to a screeching halt! Kinda scary if you think about it. So again Ive been thnking of all my loved ones and how precious this life really is.I know we should never take 1 little moment for granted but like the rest of you I still do it from time to time. And since life is so short that is why I feel it is absolutely a must to live each moment in the now and enjoy everything. And also so important to tell those you love just how much you do love and appreciate them.Also to let old hurts and slights go of and to forgive those who have hurt you in any way. I try to let those I love know just how much they mean to me and Im quick to say I love you. Some folks think Im a little crazy cause I tell people I dont even know very well that I love them.But I really do you know.To all the folks who have been even a small part of my life, again I say I love you. I love you. I love you. So maybe I am a little crazy but at least when my time is up I will be able to say that I let people know how much they meant to me. Thats for what its worth. I realize not very many people read this blog and thats ok. Ive thought a time or two on stopping this journal but then something always happens that makes me keep on going with it. Ive got a dear friend in Evansville (K.J.) who is such a lovely spirit. She sent me a message once saying that my blog entry for that day really made her feel good about herself and that it was just what she needed to hear at the time.Its things like that that keep me going. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said ,and I paraphrase "If you have caused even one life to have breathed easier because you were here-that is to have succeeded." So my friends I bid you all a fond farewell and wish for you and yours the most beautiful weekend ahead.May your joys be many and your troubles be few! God bless!
