So sorry to hear that Brother Patrick. I will say a prayer for you both. Will you get to visit with him any?

Sometimes you can get a disc replacement, would that help your back?

I'm not well enough myself to consider a trip to Florida at this point.   Funny, my Mom had a disc replaced.   Now, they seem to just 'hack' at them to stop them from compressing nerves.

{{{{{{{Weird News}}}}}}}}}

I just about killed myself over the weekend.   When I woke up groggily to take my morning medications, all that I remember is my mouth seemed extra full.   Turns out I ALMOST did what Heath Ledger DID.  I took a whole bottle of strong pain killers.  The doctors were amazed that it didn't injure me in the least...

Someone's looking out for me...

Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

Man, Brother Patrick, be careful, maybe get you one of those "pill planners" with the compartments in it and you can lay out a weeks worth at a time.

Hope your bother will have many good days. Hope you will too.

I do lay my pills out the night before and normally it isn't a problem..  BUT this time, I left a brand new bottle of extra strong pain pills on the counter.   I don't even remember grabbing it.    Sure teaches me a lesson.  And man, oh man, am I hearing it from my doctors!

I wish my brother would email me.  Maybe he's too sick to sit at a computer.  Thanks for reminding me!  Time for Snail Mail...


And on a completely different note:

I used to end my prayers with ....forever and ever, amen.   Ever since my near-death experience, I use the phrase "in the everlasting Now" because it's more accurate.  I did a web search and found this link.   Made me think of all of you.   Made me think of the wisdom of Daniel...

I'm not recommending their site, just this page..

That's a good idea, Milli.  I also have Loggerheads handy.

Hope you're doing well, Brother P.  Check in when you have a chance.

I miss checking my email for a couple of days and WOW what a surprise to hear from all of you!   The weird thing is, I have been thinking about watching Loggerheads this very morning.   To me that means we're all still connected in the heart, spirit, dots..,

~M,
The Cover of Daniel's book is Beautiful.   Would you, could you post a jpg so I could frame it?
