We are happy you are here for another week of friendly sharing! As always, you can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. On Fridays, we post the linky for sharing. The first two fill-ins are always provided by Ellen. The final two statements are offered by myself. You are welcome to answer in the comments, but if you link up, even more people can share!
Chloe Jo is feeling more herself. She is responding to her new diet, medication, and routine. She is eating, again. And, just as important, her organs are working almost as they should, now. Those who know her, know that with Chloe Jo, nothing is as it should be. Her bladder is “very tiny”, as Dr. A. says. Her kidneys are not normal in shape or size. Her intestines are irregularly shaped and slow. All of this makes it very hard for her system to process food and waste. Regulating fluids is a chronic and serious problem. As I am typing this, Chloe Jo is in the crook of my left arm, on her back, half-reclined. She likes to sit that and watch TV, too.
I hope your weather has been good. We have had strong storms and heavy rain this week. There is widespread flooding. I am hoping that this humidity and rain will help the peaches get big and ripe soon! Of course, the dogs have had some small ones, already. Thank you, wild critters who pick them and leave them by the tree. We are all very excited about the peaches this year.
Thank you all for being here and being a part of the fill-ins. I am happy that you enjoy them as much as we do! It takes me longer to get around to responding, here and at each link, but I do! I hope you all visit everyone, too. That is why we call it “Friendly Fill-Ins”.
Enjoy your weekend. Do something sweet for someone, just because you care. And, as always, be good to You, too. Hugs.
Okay. Here are my completed fill-ins:
1. My inner child is extremely active. She never really got to be a kid, so I try to take care of her. She makes a conscious effort to be good because she believes that God and Grampy are always watching. But, she can be a bit mischievous at times. She loves stories, both hearing and telling them. She loves the Peanuts gang and the Muppets. Nothing makes her happier than a furry critter. She is both in awe of and a bit unnerved by storms but loves clouds and rain. She loves to give and get hugs. Sometimes she talks too much, she but likes to listen, too. She believes there is still good in this world, but that you have to be it to see it.
2. My favourite month is October, whenAutumn is in its full glory. There is no beauty like it. There are the colours, the harvest of pumpkins, cornstalks, straw, and apples, and there are scarecrows, the cool crisp air, fall migration, and a deep sense of wisdom. Yes…bring it on.
3. My favourite commercial is currently one by Geico, because of the raccoons. I love them! In fact, we quote them often if we don’t care for something. I say, “Oh, this is awful. Try it. It's like mango, chutney and burnt hair." Bill usually says, “No, I don’t wanna’ try it!” So, I say, “Just try it!” and then, “I can’t get the taste out of my mouth.” I say it all like the raccoon, too!
4. Personally, I don't care for negativity, in any way, shape, or form. But, I also believe that being Utopian is foolish. In fact, I am a die-hard realist. "It is what it is." But, I truly believe that when one is negative, it makes things so much worse. You become unreachable, unapproachable. And, you bring yourself down, which is defeatist. If you are inclined to give up, you cannot receive help, and certainly not a miracle. You will also miss valuable lessons if you are not open to the powers that be. You don’t know what the universe holds, only your interpretation of it. It comes down to faith. Negativity is contagious, but so are hope and faith. Be the change.
~May you always see the beauty in this world!~
