Well this cold is still sticking around but I'm starting to feel a little better. I have been coughing for days. I can kind of handle eating some normal food like chicken noodle soup with some crackers at least for right now. I haven't been suffering as much from abdominal blockages since I stopped the chemo (at least for now). There just hasn't been a need for any pain relief which is a very good thing. Just suffering from the cold and slowly getting over it.
I ended up cleaning up part of the house, doing some laundry, cleaning the kitchen, and even researching political stuff on the internet. I have to admit I've been quite obsessed with the current election. It will be an exciting one that's for sure. We have red flags before us in which to base our decisions on including backgrounds and evidence of each's judgment. We just have to make the right decision for our country First (not greed, but really our Country). Yes, one of the parties isn't being honest and I have a huge problem with that. I am working on my other blog (http://peacefulliberal.blogspot.com) I will not get any further into politics because I am updating on my health. No more stress for me.
A HEART OF GOLD
Check out this beautiful Black bear with 2 gold button eyes, a gold nose with a gold ribbon; it was made by a friend. Well, I easily got moved today when my husband got home from watching sports. One of our friends that we had met at the local Pub; actually there are 3 friends, one is a neighbor to this couple (they're two young gay men), and a very sweet woman (she actually gave me a very sweet card a few weeks ago). Anyway this couple is also very, very sweet and they each have hearts of gold . I guess I tend to say that about a lot of people that I know; well because its true. It makes me feel good to know people like this because it gives me faith that the world has many of these types of people who really do out number the bad.
These are the type of people that really inspired me to start ShoppingKharma the blog. Well, anyway, these friends are a lot of fun to hang out with and they always seem to have something to say that can get me laughing; in other words, a great sense of humor. I can sit there and listen to them tell stories all day long about their lives and what they are up to.
Here I placed his teddy bear next to the one that my friends at work got me. See they match pretty good there!
The reason that I know that this couple are good hearted loving people is because they love animals. I tend to trust animal lovers over non animal lovers much, much more. If you notice animals are a better judge of one's character than we tend to be.
To get back to this couple, one is from the Bay Area and the other one is from Boone, NC (he has the cutest southern draw ever). He had been working on this teddy bear for a long time (like months) and he finally finished it. He doesn't really hang out at our local pub all that much, so I only see him ever couple of months or so. My husband was about to leave to come home and the other one, wanted my husband to stay just a little bit longer so that his boyfriend could bring this cute teddy bear for me. Anyway, he gave it to my husband to give to me and let me tell you; it really warmed my heart when my husband told me that he had made this bear just for me.
There is just something about these random acts of kindness that just mean the world to me. I know they might not seem like much, but to me they really are. No matter how hard I feel like I can be suffering or hurting, I can just think of all of warm hearted friends who are often thinking of me and just wanting nothing more than to do something nice for me.
I can't help but stop and just reflect on how nice it is to have warm hearts think of you that way and just wanting to do something really nice for little old me.
