Soothing Waters & About Myself
Hello everyone! A very warm welcome to you all! The video I have chosen for this post is a beautiful 4 minute one entitled "Soothing Waters - Waterfalls". The image stays the same throughout, so you can listen to it without having to watch it. Enjoy!
I thought I would take this opportunity to share more about myself. I am a HSP (highly sensitive person). Funny, I have never liked concerts or parades, because I cannot stand the loud noise. If I want to watch either of these things I prefer to watch it at home on the television. This way I can control the volume and I don't have to deal with the crowds and loud noise. I have been to a couple of concerts in my younger years and parades as a child but I never could stand the loud noise associated with them. I realize that this may seem strange to some, but I have always preferred quiet. :)
I don't smoke or drink alcohol. Both my parents smoked but I never started. It never appealed to me. I never did drugs and I remember as a teenager I was offered to "smoke up" on a few occasions and I always politely declined.
I am an only child. My mother had four miscarriages before I was born and then she had a son (who would have been my big brother had he lived). However, Richard died at the tender age of seven months...bronchiole pneumonia. The doctors told my mother after Richard died (in 1950) that she wouldn't be able to have any children as she had lost all 5! However, 6 years later she was pregnant with me. I was only 5 pounds 8 ounces when I was born and the doctors kept an eye on me for a while to make sure that I would not end up like my brother Richard.
When I was 26 my mother died in a convalescent hospital at the age of 67. She weighed only about 70 pounds at the time of her death. She died of a stroke; it was her second one. When I was 27, just exactly a year and two weeks after the death of my mother, my father died at the age of 64. He died of a heart attack; it was his second one.
I enjoy taking walks, as you all know, I enjoy nature sounds, soft music and I enjoy reading as well. I prefer to read non fiction books and some self help books as well as books like "Chicken Soup for the Soul".
I love to encourage others and do my best to be optimistic. I struggle with depression but I don't suffer from it.
Well, that about covers about myself for this post.
Thank you all so much for visiting me here! I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.
