Sadly the way we seem to celebrate this holiday is mostly by BBQs and drinking (my family does the BBQ thing so often its hard to say if the one we had this weekend was to celebrate or not...) There have been are alcohol checkpoints out since Friday evening. Sad that most holidays include people getting drunk and then driving.
So nothing good is going on here. But nothing too terrible. Just life stuff that we all have to deal with. Staying positive. Sometimes when I feel down I just have to look around for my dog and see what she's up to and she makes me smile and/or laugh. Just now she was having her morning snack of cat litter. NOT the used stuff, the few kernels that fell on the floor, its made out of corn so its safe to eat, but really! Gross!
Thinking of all my POA friends out there.
Peace, Hope and Love, Barbara
PS For those of you who heard I was being considered for the Katie Couric show - I haven't heard anything from them in weeks so I think its a no-go which is actually a relief to me in a way. The point is to get the message out, which she will do. It doesn't matter if I am part of that message or not. Knowing me I would have said the wrong thing on live TV! :)
