Miss Tracie will be coming to stay with Willie and do some work around the condo for us this weekend while we're out on our first adventure. We were planning to take Willie and just hope for the best, but this will work out so much better. We can get the kinks out without worrying about him! I did want my new-to-me friend, Berta, to meet him this Saturday, but Tracie's idea will be much easier. Thanks, Kiddo!!
Having Tracer here is like having my hands and arms back. I have very limited fine motor skills, especially in my left hand, so Pirate ends up carrying most of the load around here. Tracie knows how I like things done and can make decisions about things knowing I'm ok with whatever she chooses. I love that we've been able to hang out all of her life...she's such a great person and so funny and sweet...I sure got blessed in the Ditter department! When you hurt and have limitations, it's so comforting to have someone who just knows you and you don't have to explain anything or pretend you can do more than you're really able to...what a freedom!
I've always got my Tracie on my Right Arm!
So, Pirate and I are sitting here watching the markets fall....we're so blessed to have pulled out of the market months ago! WOW are we glad he listened to that 'little inner voice' and we're protected. If worst comes to worst, this country will be ok--we've been through worse before and as long as we remember to take care of those less fortunate, give when we can, smile when that's all we have, and keep in touch with the Man Upstairs we'll all see the other side of this. Necessity IS the Mother of Invention, and I know my Country...we're not a nation of celebrities and politicians, as the media would have folks believe. Nope, we're a nation of small town folks, farmers, laborers, worker bees, parents, grand parents, survivors, inventors, and adventurers. If Washington DC would get out of our way, we can fix this for our children and grandchildren...but it's gonna get messy first.
When you have the choice to be right or to be kind....always choose kindness. No one is going to care who was right weeks or months or years from now, but they will remember kindness forever.
