I’ve Been Lately Thinkin’

Adeline recently had tubes put in her ears. Aunti Kelliann brought her this and if you are near Columbia, you know what a treat Rush’s is.

The first days of 2022 have already presented me with some curve balls, none of which on their own would probably even rate a mention, but when they start to pile up, my soul joins my body being tired.

I find myself short of emotional breath, wanting to just sleep and isolate. I am blessed that even  when my brain is full speed ahead and thinking about way too many things at once, when my head hits the pillow, it’s lights out and sweet dreams. So, that’s a positive.

When I need a lift I either initiate or receive a well needed respite…FaceTime with the daughters and grandchildren. Well, mostly the grandchildren, but they still can’t start their own FT, although Adeline is pretty close to being able to.  I’m just joking as I love and appreciate  my daughers more and more each day.

I got to have  a FT with the “Little Dude”  (aka Maddox) earlier this evening. I look forward to finally  meeting him in two weeks.

Adeline and Theodore, the Ginger grandchildren.

Lately in my work, I have completed way too many death certificates for people a year or two older or younger than me. Rarely have I ever noticed that before, but suddenly I am acutely aware of remembering that someday,  the next thing I know will be the last thing I know.  I believe the experts would call it Eschatological urgency.

“The days they pass so quickly now”.

I was a big fan of John Denver’s early music and he wrote some great songs back in the day, that’s for sure. I was thinking of this tune today and when I searched it, I found this version, which I never knew existed.  I decided to use the Muppets to lighten the mood a bit.

I chuckled at the words that were changed to make the song a little more “Muppet Friendly”

Did anyone else notice?

About Ray V.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
