Don't it always seem to go....

I realize that the title in my post isn't good grammar...but I did it on purpose because I was quoting the song by Joni Mitchell of so long ago.  "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone."
Sad but very often true.  I watch Cesar Millan's TV program on the National Geographic Channel "The Dog Whisperer" and I really appreciate his way.  So often he mentions about dogs (and animals in general) "living in the moment."  

Too often today people are so rushed in the hustle and bustle of daily life that they often forget to take time to enjoy...and live in the moment.  They often say "I will do it tomorrow"...well, many things can be put off and done the next day.  And should be.  There are some things that are good to not put off until the next day.  A kind word, a warm hug, a few moments to talk to our family and friends...these are things that are very good for us to do...not put off, as we really don't know if we HAVE tomorrow.

As I write this I am feeling particularly blessed to have wonderful friends, both face to face and online, and I want you all to know how much I appreciate and value you all.

I am having a little setback in my health at this time, but I wanted to make sure that I made this post and not put it off.
Just to briefly mention that the health issues are intestinal, and most likely related to the diverticulitis I had last month.  Thank you all for keeping me in your prayers and thoughts.

Sending you all love and hugs...thank you so much for visiting me here and for your comments, which you can always share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my posts.

  1. An attack of diverticulitis can take some time straightening itself out; don't rush it, take it easy and the other things your doctor said. We'll be here when you get back.

  2. My wife used to watch the dog whisperer, too, and I liked to watch it with her, but she doesn't seem to watch it anymore for some reason. Hope you get to feeling better. I'll start praying for you again.

  6. Diverticulitis is not fun. I hope that you'll be back to full health soon and feeling good. It has become very clear to us lately that one's health is the single most important thing!

I have had two attacks, and now an abscess. So I am most interested in you, and so sorry! Please e-mail me if you would like to, and we can share our illness we have in common, my e-mail address is on my profile. I will be praying for the best for you, my friend!!! Ginny

  14. Hey, I just left you a comment, but it didn't look like it went through, maybe you have comment moderation. I just happened to see your blog title, even though I am not commenting I had to see what is up with you. I am so sorry, this is why I have not been posting, two attacks of diverticulitis and an abscess. E-mail me if you want, my address is on my profile.

  16. That is true about not knowing what you've got before its gone. Looking back at my old photos I can't get over what a good body shape I had but in those days I didn't think I had I didn't realise how lucky I was. I hope your health improves soon.

Please do not be shy! I appreciate your kind comments, they are sweet treasures and really make my day! Spammers, do not waste your time, I delete your comments and they do not even show on my blog. Comment moderation is enabled. I do hope that Blogger's changes in the way of proving that you are not a robot do not deter you from commenting! Thank you so much! If you have Google+ and are only allowing Google+ users to comment on your blog, I do not have, nor do I want it. And if you use DISQUS for accepting comments on your blog I don't have that, either, nor do I want it. Thanks!
