Let us all enjoy today and make tomorrow even better for all of us.
Had another sweat free night of sleep, it was brilliant actually slept until 9.30 am.
Then Richie massaged the pain out of my legs and just as I had taken the first set of baclofen tablets of the day Lin from The British General Stores came round with a bagful of goodies from her shop.
Often have a look at her website and do the virtual reality tasting tour as I sample scones and clotted cream and eat a packet of crisps or cheddar cheese on crackers with a touch of onion chutney.
Reading Steve’s post on The Wheel of Fortune ‘His laughter is my drug of choice’ I recognized what he wrote about laughter, it rang lots of bells for me..
When I stopped smoking joints a year ago for a wee while my sense of humour had gone, very upsetting and odd not to spend lots of time laughing with Richie.
Had the same ten years ago when I stopped smoking cigarettes, and then too suddenly could not even manage a smile.
After I got used to the vaporizer my laughter came freely again, except now I have to watch for the spasms triggered by laughing.
Glad that I could laugh again as really love being able to hang out or lime as we say in Trinidad with my darling Richie.
More thoughts were triggered by reading other blogs keep seeing posts advocating more research be done to find a cure for MS.
Wouldn’t it be so much better that instead of billions being spent on warfare it were put into researching degenerative diseases and others such as spinal injuries.
I also think people need to know what is happening to them as soon as possible and that means screening and testing people.
This calls for free universal health care for all, health care should not be a commodity that profits can be made on at the cost of people and the communities they are from.
The health of a community is its greatest asset and it is healthy people that carry the community forward.
A diverse and vibrant community that wants to live and let live and be supportive to each other.
There have been many mistakes made which can not be corrected maybe it is time not to look back saying ‘What if’ or ‘If only’ and say ‘ Let us do something now’
If everyone did something kind everyday I bet life would be much better for us all as what goes round comes round.
