Mourning Joy - Thursday - August 31, 2006

Good Mourning Widows!

Joy to you and me!

It is a cloudy day here 20 miles north of where The World Trade Center used to be. I sit behind my laptop, fingers clicking, Izzy pawing my knee to go out and piddle. In my little red mailbox to cheer me is a note from a hospice nurse, Karen Doty, the woman who lovingly guided me through my darkest hours. Today, her words brighten my day.

From the face of the Hallmark card she wrote them in.

"We walk. Stumble. Fall. Get up. Stumble again. We keep moving. Always moving forward."

Karen Doty:

"Some people come into our lives at a particular time for a reason."

Here's to walking, stumbling, falling, getting up, stumbling again, moving, moving forward, and loving those people who come into our lives at a particular time for a reason.

Now for Thursday's Mourning Joy:

What am I?

I have a tail, and I have a head, but I have no body.

I am not a snake.

What am I?

Ha! Gotcha.
Tune in tomorrow for the answer.

A Joyful mourning to everyone!
