I Took Your Advice

I have had a laid back day. I also have had a few comments about the scary truth that happened here last evening. A dear friend named Diane sent Al an anointed cloth a day ago.

I don’t know if this has anything to do with what happened. I have never studied anything about the ever after life. I just always knew and counted on going to heaven, so why question, but maybe I need more answers. This cloth has been prayed over by very strong Christians so it means the world to me. Al keeps it under his pillow.

The advice I took is I did nothing today. Yes, Al is here. He was only up this morning for breakfast and has preferred napping in his recliner or bed and dining in his room. Wow, it must be nice to order room service. LOL

I did sweep the kitchen this morning and clean the kitty box. I did one load of laundry because of Al’s bedding and made my own bed.

Right now he is eating supper and I am eating at my favorite spot, my writing chair. I am listening to some of my favorite music instead of having to hear Pawn Stars in the background. Maybe you would also enjoy this music. Here is a link in case you would. It is Gheorghe Zamfir, full album.

I even took a nap. I feel lazy because I didn’t clean more, but I feel more relaxed, and to dine to my music is divine.


My heart is big enough for two

A little for others  a little for you

Although we are sister and brother

As a sibling there is no other

But we each need our space you know

It makes life such an easier flow

So you listen and watch Pawn Stars

And I will listen to my music and ponder on the stars…………

  1. A Poem for You

    Dining with your kind of music is divine
    And with chirping crickets on the vine
    Nothing would be there to ponder
    For a wonderful sister and loving mother

    Must I sing to thee a lullaby?
    Every time I come across on by?
    Many might say there’s no need
    For a lovely lady to heed

    Sing your song loud and proud
    Soon you’ll be heard aloud
    When comes past and of late
    Here’s this soul to emulate


  2. Yes…she did it… took our advice…and I know you feel better…so glad…Seems Al might be spending more time in his bed…It’s OK Terry…If he is more comfortable there…It will bring you peace too…
    Just seems like countdown time…but, Only God knows when…
    Blessings Terry…


  3. Terry well done for resting more and let things go a bit. You see it does feel good. You need these times to keep you going. I shall rest with you, so you are not alone, and I won’t feel guilty for not cleaning the kitchen… 🙂 We can do it tomorrow! Big hug!


      • There you go, there is no little elf who does my house work, and I wouldn’t mind if he left the stuff not exactly where is was, I could deal with that… hehe.
        Rest is good and we need it. (I admit I slept an hour earlier, I was so tired)
        I’ll wait for this elf one more day… then I migh thave to do it myself….


      • believe me, there is no little or big elf sliding under the door crack at this house. it is all up to me. when do we get to quit and let someone else take over…………


  4. You did the right thing! Rest is absolutely vital. A friend once pointed something out to me – God rested on the seventh day; not because He needed to, but to set an example for us. Make sure you take time for yourself when you can.


  5. Letting go of what you “think” is best for him and allowing him to do what feels good today, each day, will be the key to you being able to continue to give him the best care and most love you can. You cannot be a good care giver if you are worn our and then become resentful. Congratulations for trusting yourself enough to let go and take time to allow your emotions and body to rest.
