a no-brainer

Have you been everywhere? Not if you haven't been to Texas. LOL

CLICK HERE for a little tour.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for another day of sober experience

for another day of opportunities in front of me

for the strength afforded me yesterday during a requested visit to my Mom's hospice. Her condition has deteriorated to the point that I had to make a decision for her future. I have that responsibility legally. Her digestive system has shut down and her skin is near that point. She has terrible pressure ulcers that will only get worse. Her heart condition and diabetes complicate her condition. With the full approval of my sister, we decided to pull the plug on all of her life support systems. She will die in the next few days and everything will be done to keep her out of pain. I know without a doubt that this is what she would want me to do. We discussed it in the past. I'll keep you posted.

A pleasure is not full grown until it is remembered.

Dear dAAve,

God Bless you and your sister and Mother !

I think you are doing exactly what Pat wants too. She has stayed the course to the very end without complaint. She is a strong lady and has raised two wonderful children. You are all in my prayers and Pat can rest comfortably with the Lord.
God Bless, Dave. I love you.
