You Lift My Spirits

This week has been a rough one.

My father went to his usual Dr's appointment Monday and they admitted him. He has Emphysema real bad. While waiting for my mother to call me back, one of my bfs calls. Her hubby has been in the hospital for two months now (heart troubles and strokes) and it doesn't look good. She went to the hospital herself three weeks ago and they found something. After further tests, it has been confirmed as lung cancer. My other bf is watching her beloved dog of 15+years very closely, he's not doing good either. Mother finally gets to call me back and she's not doing so great, her asthma has been kicking her butt. Plus she has to try to help my sis with the new baby and deal with her husband in the hospital in a different county with no wheels to get to see him.

I feel like walking away from this week or at least the phone.
Yeah, I've been in a funk.

BUT, there is a bright side...
Everyday (sometimes twice a day), I open my email to see my comments.

Yall just have this way about getting me to laugh, in spite of my worries or funk.

This week alone I have been tagged, received an award and won a key chain!

Some of those comments yesterday had me roaring a good belly laugh. The idea that there is no sex..OMG how can that be? The world has stopped turning!!! LMAO!!!

I have also meet some new bloggers that I have decided to follow. I know I shouldn't be adding more to my list, cause I can barely keep up with all of yall but I couldn't help myself.

Here are some of my new peeps:

Here is what I think...
My Walking Path
Starting Over

The tagging, I'm still working on that. It is really long.

The award..just so wonderful and beautiful..The Sunshine Award given to me by My Walking Path.

The rules are to give this to 12 peeps, let them know about it in their comments and link the giver.

I am such a break the rules kinda girl. I say it goes to all of you, cause yall are my sunshine on these cloudy days. Take it, enjoy it and pass it on if ya want.

You all make my day, every day!

Awww, Heather! That's just too much for one person to bear! No wonder you're in a funk.

I'm sending some hugs your way to try to help eliviate your burden. All your Bf's should be glad that they have your shoulder to lean on.

Isn't it amazing how things can pile up and make a person feel overwhelmed. Hope things work out for everyone. I got a laugh out of that OH! No sex??? comment myself. Take care.

Sorry to hear about the bad news. It's hard to keep your spirits lifted with so much tugging at you. I love comments too though, it does curb that feeling of isolation. Wishing you and upswing this week.

Aw, sweetie. I'm so sorry I've been MIA around here. So many ppl struggling with illnesses...I'm sorry you're going through so many right now.

I hope you can forgive my being absent for so long...and now I'm going to flood you with comments whilst I catch up!
