Your Dying Spouse 363 - The Living Years

"Get things done yesterday; tomorrow may be too late." - Jocko Clark

So true. I have waited too long for too much, and the things I thought I would have time for have slipped through my fingers.

I could have done this, built that, traveled there...

...but mostly, I could have been kinder.

Please pardon the short post. Been experiencing severe chest pain over the past couple of days, and 36 hours ago was bitten by a rattlesnake.



I do ask that you be patient with my slow replies to your comments (which we treasure). I'm trying to stay caught up.

Still hoping to get the new and improved version of Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart up and running in the near future. Just haven't had the energy to do it yet...but if you would like to read it, please say so in your comment and I'd be glad to send you a PDF (which should fit your Kindle).



I have another blog, "Starting The Day With Grace". The focus is a grace quote from someone you might not expect (like, say Mick Jagger) and a short commentary. I hope you'll join me.



Marley update... been moved to a sanctuary, and Bay County will revise their 'dangerous dog' codes.

WE MADE A DIFFERENCE!

And marley has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.


If you can, please do leave a comment. I am trying to answer all, and I am failing, but please know this - I read and treasure each one.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.

    1. Gayl, you're so right...we don't know how much time we have, or when the odd poisonous reptile might end it! I was really lucky. So was the snake; he got away.

      Blessings back!

    1. Sandy, that's EXACTLY what I said!

      "Seriously???"

    1. Rachel, I have to say that if it didn't hurt so much, it would have been funny.

      Well, it STILL was funny. I survived, the snake got away, and the score is Snake 1, Me 0.

      Thanks so much for the prayers; you are in ours.

  6. Dear Sir, I've only been blessed to have shared a handful of your posts, but each one is a testament to your kindness. I admire your generous spirit so much! It's hard to imagine a mere rattlesnake having a chance against you. Prayers for peace and ease.

    1. Alice, your words do me such great honour...and I am so grateful!

      The rattlesnake did get away. I'm sort of glad, and hope he found a distant dirt-mound to call his own, because I really hate killing things. Well, except mosquitos.

      Thank you so much for the prayers!

  7. Where were you when the rattlesnake bit you? I'm surprised it had the gall to do that. If you had bitten it back it would be dead now. ;-)

    1. Jan, the dogs who were outside started barking in an odd way, and I got bitten when I went to look. Didn't get much warning, a quick rattle and then the strike.

      I thought about biting it right back, but thought the ASPCA might object.

    1. Barbie, thanks for being here. Sometimes I think just being me is hazardous to my health.

    1. Susan, I will...but they'd darn better stay away from me, now!
