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.

Easter 2021

It's that season again when the breeze is warm enough To go out in nature And the hike is not so rough The ground is dry enough The rock's not so slippery As we climbed the trails above Not so muddy but rocky There's not much greenery But a hint of good scenery With young growth below, yet premature Give a hope that reassures Then Easter Day we were looking forward to Came by and flew through A few weeks of preparation With our three generations Putting up decorations Getting gifts all ready Making food for everybody Some are healthy, some . . . just yummy The egg hunting that used to be for our children Some many years ago  are now enjoyed by our grandkids Who reminds us of those early years The happy birthday days of festivities The joy from those activities Makes me grateful for simple things  That has not changed Spending time, playing, and eating together Can bring joy altogether

Six Sentence Story: Green Coat

He tore my green, soft, favorite coat, the one I wore so much. I felt I was not the one he wanted me to be, not anymore.  All good things must come to an end, or should it be just the bad? Clutching my torn coat and shutting the door in front of him, tears shed from my burning eyes. I said goodbye. It is his loss, not mine.
