I'm not sure who it was, but someone mentioned the other day that it takes a village. It takes a village to do what we are doing. Without getting political and being slightly to the right of Attila the hun, i was not a fan of the author of it takes a village nor its premise. But in this context, it certainly does take a village. We could not do ALS without all of you. We continue to get meals dropped off every other day. We continue to be supported in ways that dont make sense. I continue to be humbled, by all those that are willing to support us financially. My auntie, thinking about my mental state, sent me two books by an author who she thought would make me smile. Would make me smile. The fact that she would think of that makes me smile. Thanks Mona. Little smiling happening around here. Until i talk to mare.
She continues to make the best of an impossible situation. She continues to choose to be positive in a situation that calls on all that is human, to be pissed at the hand that has been dealt. I know i am. I walk around pissed most of the time. Pissed at what has been taken from me, what has been taken from mare. She continues to be a shinning light. Continues to live in the moment, for all that is worth living, With that cute voice.
We were surrounded by family and friends this Saturday, Kathy, Mares sister, was up to take care of her sister on Friday night. I had gone to a play with lauren, and came home late. Kathy came up to love on her sister and me. The fact that Kathy was here allowed me to get some much needed sleep.
On Saturday, we had visits from vince and cheryl hughes and and dave and eileen moreland. I escaped to play some tennis. Tennis has always been a huge part of what i do, but now is an escape, a place to hide from this hideous disease. A disease that continues to rob of us our mother, wife, and family member.
May she have a restful and peaceful sleep.
