Someday or weeks have you ever wanted to just scream? I mean an all out "SCREAM"
I know this is kind of an odd thing for me to come out of the blue with but it is how this last couple of weeks has been. I have debated whether to post anything here but have decided this is my blog and it is my choice.
Before Christmas my folks made the decision that it was time for them to sell out the cows at the ranch, it affected me pretty drastically. In meaning the ranch has always been like a release for me, what I mean by that is the one place that everything in the world is as it should be. The one place where I can go and it's quiet (or somewhat), the horses and the cows, a little piece of heaven on earth. I guess the only real peace for me has been there to sum it up. So this was a major decision and one I can honestly say "upset my applecart". I have come to the realization that for my folks it is the right decision and the Best decision.
I truly Love you Mom and Dad!
Now a couple of month later it again has been a trying time in the sense that Three weeks ago we lost a friend Deb to breast cancer. My hubby worked with her hubby, and she had two children close to mine in age.
Then last Friday another wonderful lady named Delia passed away from cancer leaving a beautiful new grandbaby, daughter, sons and husband.
Then also last week I gained the knowledge that someone close to me (I will not release her name-that is her decision to do) has a Stage O. Now from what I am understanding and learning from my doctor ( he is wonderful not only does he treat me when needed he give lots of information when asked too) that this is a very Treatable and has a very high success of cure. This has relieved some of my "screaming so to speak".
Then as if that wasn't enough we found out another friend has discovered she has colin cancer...
Now on Tuesday I had an appointment to take our dog to the vet. To give some background information on this we Had gotten "Shadow" in 2001 as a puppy, my twins were 4 years old and they were with me and we fell in love with her and brought her home. She has been one of those dogs that you treasure.
Fast forward 10 years:::
The last month she had gotten a limp in her hind leg I thought she had gotten a cut on her pad of her foot so have been soaking and it appeared to be getting better until the last week. I decided it was time to take her to the vet, and was given the word that she had a very malignant rare bone cancer in her back hip and upper leg. We decided it was best to put her down, it has been a decision not easily made.
How do you end a friendship of any magnitude?
How do you know you did the right thing?
Further more Why? Why? Why? I would like to know Why we can send men to the moon and beyond but Not come up with a cure for cancer??
Thank you for listening to my ranting and raving. Thank the Lord for quilting because at times it is the one thing that brings a calmness to the world........
- I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota with my husband Bill, 3 sons, 2 dogs,, 2 horses-now 1, bottle calves and Chicks. I love to Quilt. I enjoy Horses,Gardening, Flowers, Archery, Camping, Fishing, Bottle Calves and all things with animals. I started sewing when I was 8 for 4-H, and have sewed off and on since. I discovered how fun quilting was over 7 years ago. I still sew on a Kenmore that was a graduation gift in 1981. I have a New Kenmore 385.19, and a Viking 400, a Singer Treadle, a Featherweight. and a Viking Ruby. In February 2010 I purchased an APQS Longarm , and Love everyone of them. I taught my 1st paper-piecing class, it was such a blast!
