Update- This is the latest on the little boy that was 19 grams when we got him. He weighs 112 grams now and his eyes opened 8/24/10. To see him at 19 grams- (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I had a fun-filled morning. I took my brother to a first time visit to a dermatologist. I had never visited one either, so I was curious as to what we were in for. I had been mailed the paper work to be filled out prior, and we were there promptly ten minutes before our called time. It was a nice looking office. Clean. The ladies in the waiting room all had clear complexions, unlike me with my ugly moles. The receptionist was very pretty and nice. My brother noticed nothing. He was shaking to death, as they say, from his tremors. He was crying because he didn’t want to die.? I don’t really know where that thought was coming from. We gave them all proper identification, so they didn’t get us mixed up with some other name or face. We sat down and I noticed plenty of female attracting magazines with beautiful faces, and pamphlets for this issue or that. His name was called promptly, and we rose to go on. My brother stood there. I didn’t know whether to go over and drag him by the hand or just wait patiently. I chose the latter. He moved. Thank you Jesus! We went in to the small office. The tech was a high school friend of mine, so we played catch-up while putting more important information to paper. The doctor entered promptly also. I was highly impressed with this place. She was so nice. She talked smoothly and gently to my brother. She got down on his level, and comforted him with her words. I wanted to never leave. This was my type of doctor. No guilt being thrown at me here! He had been brought here from a grayish black area on his cheek, local doctor thinking it should be checked out. Praise God, it was not cancer. We or I was forced to move one leg than another and never to walk back into that office again. Sad. I treated my brother to lunch as a victory we had won at this visit. Home again. Comfort zone. He went straight to his bed for his nap. I left TV off,and listened to the wonderful silence, drinking my coffee, reading my emails. The front door being left open I heard a soft chatter. My ears perked up as I tried to diagnose what animal this was. I heard it a couple more times. I softly rose from my comfy PC chair and tiptoed over to the door where I could get a glimpse of what was out there. All winter long I had been feeding a family of baby squirrels. I had not placed any bread, peanuts, or feed for a couple of days. Immediately, I smiled. There was two of the babies, sitting on my front porch staring at me. Just sitting, doing nothing, but gazing at me first. I know, I know, don’t encourage animals near your home, but I always looked at it, if I was feeding them, they weren’t trying to get in my house through the roof somewhere, when I was sleeping. I turned around and got my bag of seed I had left and opened the door wondering if they were going to leave? stay there?. They scurried. They ran over and crawled up the bark of the tree, but they only went part way. I could see their little furry heads peaking around the corner watching and waiting for me to give them their treats. I went out in the yard, and tossed to the wind all I had left. I came back inside, and stood at the door. TheyΒ  hurriedly scrambled from the tree and came over to eat. They didn’t mind if I watched or not. What they do not know yet, is I have a rather nice treat waiting for them, but it is still in the car. How they will be surprised.Β  I was blessed twice today. No sad news for my brother, and my furry little friends were there to visit. I am needed. I am needed by God, my brother, and my furry little friends.

  1. So glad you day … ended in a comfortable way and that you felt good at heart. Never seen a baby squirrels – when I was young my grandma had a hedgehog family every year for so long as I can remember. Their babies are absolutely adorable, most babies are .. aren’t they ???? – you see we are needed for many reasons and I can still remember this excitement waiting for the family to come along .. and when they come – you get this warmness inside. Thanks for a this lovely story – as your day ended after all.


  2. Terry – I really enjoyed this blog – sometimes when life gets me down, I pray to God for a sign, a small sign, like a beautiful bird, the smell of a beautiful fresh flower – for you it was two furry babies – how wonderful!


  3. Terry, so happy it went better than the dentist visit!!! It’s great that you have your furry friends too. Mark and I have had a squirrel that we fed for years but don’t know what happened to him. We haven’t seen him for quite a while now 😦 We think the influx of coyotes in the area may be the cause. Glad that you had such a good day my friend~!!!


    • you just brought a huge smile on my face. i think of the ugly sister in Cinderella, when I look at my moles. Maybe I could be famous some day??? lol Cindy Crawford is so beautiful……….


      • You’re so beautiful! In our Chinese culture we truly believe who we are gets imprinted on our face. And well, we tend to notice our own flaws more than anyone else. Yes, Cindy was funny, she use to hate her mole sooo much because she was teased for it, she wanted to have it removed, only to find that it made her famous! Think Eva Mendez too! (Minus the drugs).

        And you are already famous, my dear πŸ˜€
