You can get over your nightmares and pick up the pieces and go on.


  1. #25 YES times a million. The gallbladder experience sounds scary! My mom had hers out and it gave her a world of trouble before they finally removed it.

  2. Yes, and make that times 324,569,553 million. That's the population and I got to see one born on the clock just now. That monstrosity from a bygone era should be thrown out on it's ear.

    The gall bladder is guite useful, and it would be wonderful if medical science would figure out what happens to make it spit little blue balls at the pancreas, you know? Glad your mom finally got a correct diagnosis. Another gripe for another time. lol

  3. It sounds as if your mother and my grandmother would have gotten along very well. My Nana loved plants and taught me all about them...even the weeds. I think one of the prettiest sights is a fall field filled with purple Ironweed and Goldenrod.

    1. I think my mother and your grandmother would have had a lot to talk about. My mother was a farmer's daughter, who passed her love of the land down to me, and through me to my children. Preserving farmland in order to feed ourselves must remain a priority. And leaving nature to form her systems will take true vision.
