My daughter and I visited my Grand today, she was awake and alert, but barely. This strong, dynamic, classy lady has simply "melted" away, right before our eyes! In 9 months she has lost so much weight and become so thin that the veins in her hands are bugling out.
She is slowly drifting away from us ...body, mind and soul. It is heart wrenching to watch and brings me to tears every time I say goodbye, not knowing if "this" will be the last time I see her! Cancer is a horrible, horrible disease! :(
I am heading to spend the weekend with my Grand! This gal is so strong! We were told that she only had 2 weeks to 6 months to live and last week she is going on 9 months!! A lot of stuff has happened in those 9 months...good and bad...but Wow!
So I'm off to visit and enjoy the time God has given us! Have a Super Blessed Weekend!
My your flag always fly high, Your people stand strong and tall!
May God Bless our Country, May we continue to live as a "Christian" nation,
One that our fore fathers would be proud of!
May we abide by and protect our Constitution!
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
I still can't believe this is happening to our beautiful coastlines and marshes! The whole thing seems so surreal!? How in the world could something like this have even happened in this day and age!?
Today via PBS, BP has 2 more "options" to try and stop this oil leak! The meter above was from the PBS site and shows how much oil has leaked into the Gulf already! It is just Sickening!!!
BP's chief of Gulf Coast restoration Bob Dudley called the well polluting the Gulf of Mexico "just a very unusual problem." Oh my goodness! This is SO Not "just an unusual problem!" It looks to me to be a Terrible, Horrible Very Bad "Problem!"
The links below tell this horrific story of the Gulf Spill Disaster far better then I could ever do. But be advised you may need a whole box of tissues to read some of it, I know I did! :( It truly is the worse oil spill in the US and not just for the Gulf areas, but for us "all!"
"The amount of oil spilled so far could only fill the cavernous New Orleans Superdome about one-seventh of the way up. On the other hand, it could fill 15 Washington Monuments and two-thirds of the way up a 16th. If the oil were poured on a football field -- complete with endzones -- it would measure nearly 100 yards high."
