Mom died of brain
cancer 25 years ago and it was the hardest single death I've
experienced thus far. I joked for years that I started with the worst
and everything after that was easy by comparison...I was wrong.
One of the weirdest
things I've noticed about being in my 40s is that you have to start
watching your friends die from things that you used to think were for
older people. I've lost friends to heart attack, diabetes
complications, stroke, cancer, you name it. I think in your teens and
20s if you have close death, it's primarily to accident or
2014 started off
like any other year, but in May I lost a friend to cancer. With his
life circumstances and the progress of the disease, it almost seemed a
cruel joke for him to go. I took it really hard. Then came June and I
got completely floored by the suicide of someone I loved dearly. To
be honest, I'm still trying to recover from that one. It was at this
point that my depression started overwhelming…
Teehee, Country Shelli send this one to me and it wouldn't be so funny to me if so many of these weren't true! LOL! Hope this makes y'all smile...
-------------------- One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?"
"It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"
He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."
A couple is lying in bed. The man says, "I am going to make you the happiest woman in the world." The woman replies, "I'll miss you..."
"It's just too hot to wear clothes today," Jack says as he stepped out of the shower, "Honey, what do you think the neighbors would think if I mowed the lawn like this?"
"Probably that I married you for your money," she replied.
