Updates

Things on one hand are getting suckier(I know it is not a real word, but it is now) and on the other hand I have lots of jobs and money is coming in, so that has been helpful. The sucky part is that my cousin R is going fast and is not expected to live until Christmas. His family is in a lot of heavy pain right now. And it is Christmas. Somehow that makes it all so much worse. I am going to miss him very much.
Also very sucky is that my cat B is still ill and is now having more issues. Spike is holding.
I do have fun plans for Christmas, I am only hoping that I will be able to do them, as long as I don't have some emergency with the cats.
I have two dear friends coming for dinner to my house. I have a bottle of champagne and hopefully for this one day I can have peace and joy and fun and leave all the ugliness outside in the cold.
I love you.xoxo

When I read your post my eye was drawn several times to the quote by Leonard Cohen you have right beside it. I'm glad you have a bell to ring with friends on Christmas day. May you be blessed with magic each and every day. Wishing you well. ~Suzanne

Worry not much Annie, I think things will get better. There are some that we cant change or accept and I hope you will have a blessed Christmas despite all problems. Love ya :)

If you can say the word then it is real. I've had my doubts about supercalafragilistic for a while. LOL

Good to hear that Spike is doing ok. I hope your cousin can make it until Christmas his close family can take comfort on that day. It is hard when there isn't an amnesty from horridness on Christmas Day. When you think of how special it is all around the world- even soldiers stopped fighting and played football together in no man's land in the First World War. It feels so wrong that anyone can have anything bad happen on Christmas Day. Nature though continues and we hold on for the journey.

I really hope you can have your special meal with friends, drink champagne and kick up your heels however briefly as a break from yor worries is always good.

sorry about your cousin. how sad for you, and the family.

You have certainly done all you can for B. He's is a lucky cat to have a mom like you.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas dinner. A toast to you and your courage.

May your heart be soothed this Christmas season. Loss at this time of year is particularly difficult. My children lost their 17 year old dog last night. He "left this form," but I am trying to help them remember that he lived a long and wonderful life... but it is so hard to let go. Enjoy time with friends and remember the love. May we all...
A blessing to come to know you this year, Annie. Holiday hugs to you.

I hope so too.

You can have peace and love and happiness Annie.

You just make that choice.

I, Annie, am going to have a good day no matter what comes at me. I can't change the big picture but I can be happy even if sad things happen.

I am so sorry to hear about your cousin.

Love Renee xoxoxo

I'm sorry for the sorrow your loved ones are experiencing right now. Try to find some joy amidst it all. If anyone can, it's you!

I do hope you have a nice evening with your two friends, a deserved respite from the onslaught of all the bad news. A big hug to you.

Annie said...

You are all so lovely and wonderful. Thank you for all your wise and kind words. xoxo
