Mid Week Thoughts or The Best and The Worst

Wandering this thing called life.
What an adventure it can be.
I have the best and the worst.
My days are filled with the youthfulness
of my new love, Jodie Isabella.
I think of her and what she needs.
She has brought the joy back to our home.
We were sad as can be over here.
Darkness covered our days and nights.
She has opened our souls to the brightness that was hiding.
She brings the thoughts of possiblilities.
In doing this, she also reminds me of how old I am.

The what if's come to me.
I worry about the cats health.
They are getting older.
My other dog, Maddy Jean, is almost nine.
What would Jodie do without her.
What would Maddy Jean now do without Jodie.
Jodie has brought Maddy Jean back.
Not that she was gone but she was so sad.
Now, she plays all day inbetween naps.
Me, I'm trying to keep up.
Acting like I'm in my thirty's or forty's, only I'm not.

I finally had to go to the not so popular Dr.'s office.
Not the mini clinic like I normally do.
And, by normally I mean when I have to.
Nope, my old damage body had demanded that
I visit with the professionals who ask all sort of questions.
Always the shock of being in a coma and sepsis.
Question after question.
I quess they are surprized to have me just mention it like
it was a cold or a previous broken arm.
Not that big a deal.
Yes, it happened and now let's talk about what I came in for.
Do they ever want to run tests on me.

Oh, the joys of getting old.
So, there you have the best and the worst.
The possibilities are endless.
So, I will enjoy my freshness and
wait to hear what those professionals have in store for me.
Nothing like being tested on .. been there and done that.

Oh, and the weather .. it's rainy wet out with snow arriving soon.
And, again I think .. the good and the bad.
Jodie will play in it and driving to puppy class will be hell.

Enjoy your Wet Wedneday

Our dear pets always remind us of ours and their mortality. Out little puss is getting older and I fear for her too. We must try and put this to one side and enjoy them while we have them:o)
I hope you are okay JC and these 'tests' will not be too tedious. I too have to go for various health checks and I NEVER look forward to going, and always dread the outcome, which fortunately is usually good. - hope your results are too.
Sending a hug.

It's not easy, is it, to balance on the razor's edge of life, between despair and joy, between the "best and the worst."

Sending universal Light (and purrs from the boys).

We are only as old as we least that is what Beth says....she says she is 28 but between you and me she is A LOT older than that.... I hope all of your tests come back with good news....take care, my friend....

That last line made me laugh - Jodie will play in it and driving to puppy class will be hell. Like they are sort of the same level of chaos...
Maybe that is what friends are for - laughing with you! Hope all is better tomorrow, or the day after that...

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
