No More Pain


  • It is not too easy to focus on gratitude but we are trying. We are grateful for the ten loving years our miniature poodle, Snowball gave us.
  • His pain from a deadly attack of a loose Pitbull ended. He is now pain-free.
  • We are grateful for animal control staff assistance.
  • We are grateful for the pictures reminding us of many years of happiness with a loving dog who loved daily walks up to his last day.
  • We are grateful that none of us humans were physically hurt.


  • Switching gears, I am grateful for my grandchildren who plays with me outdoors, snow or sunshine.
  • I am grateful for takeouts, and in a way, I help the restaurants still have a little business.
  • I am grateful for reusable personal protective equipment at work to use in isolation rooms in the hospital.
  • I am happy to report that over 180 COVID-19 patients were discharged out of my hospital since March. Some are even publicized in the news happy and back with their families.

  1. Very sorry for your loss. It is a truly awful equation, the pain we feel at the loss of their unconditional love is directly proportional to the good they have added to our lives.

  3. Oh, how terrifying. I am so sorry!
    I remember the time a dog (not a pitbull) attacked our dog when I was walking him on a leash. It was scary. Neither our dog nor the dog who attacked were breeds known for attacking humans or other animals.
    I am glad you have the protective gear you need at work and that there are COVID-19 patients able to return home.

Overdue Gratitude

Hello, hello. I am here after two months. I have been meaning to write my gratitude but did not get myself to sit down and actually type and post it. My daughter turned 21, an adult but still young at heart and spirit. She is my forever baby and youngest and smallest.  We celebrated 2020 style, just me and her in Estes. We stayed in a condo with a nice view. The place was by the stream and the water was not all frozen yet. We could hear the water flowing with its relaxing nature sound. We walked outdoors in with the cold breeze. Surprise, surprise, we were the only ones outdoors. The masks, I must admit, felt good to wear as our breath, at least, bouncing back on our face felt warm. Paul and I celebrated our two-months anniversary in a neighboring state and ordered takes-outs. We hang out (in?) ate, drank, and talked. The drive was beautiful passing by packs of rams unsuspecting of the cars passing by. We finally got our professional wedding (and video) shots. They are all beautiful in
