Gratitude for Those Around Us

Posted by Sundance(RB) @sundance6, Aug 5, 2019

Yesterday was a Somber Day because of the violince that had taken place in the previous 24 hours. I tried to keep myself busy with projects that I had put off over the last year from being so ill.
When I finished mid PM I sat down to watch some TV and see how the country was doing. Of course every cable news channel had reports on the scene and “Experts” who lined up waiting to tell us why it happened. I spent the next few hours before bed checking back ocassionaly to see and hear if there was something new.
Finally decided to call it a night.
As with every night when I go up to bed the first thing I do is to end my night with a reading from “The Tao of Joy, every Day” by Derek Linn.
The page i opened to last night was simply Labeled “Gratitude”!
One written thought and sentance really summed up how we should we should view the world around us in times like these! “Think about the people you love; family members, good friends, teachers, people who have helped you and people who you have inspired.” “Your connections to them are the most precious things in Life.”
Spend the day Thanking and loving all of those around you! They are the most important things in Your Life!

Hi,
Be careful out in the wilds of New Mexico, don’t become an appetizer for a bear or whatever.

I'm to Old and boney for them! Funny of the 70+ years I have been in the wild I can count the number of times I've seen a bear in the wild on one hand. But that doesn't mean it can't happen! Just as walking across a parking lot at a mall. Always be aware of your surrondings!
Will keep you posted.
Thanks,

@sundance The statement from “The Tao of Joy” was beautiful and just what I needed! Thank you. My husband is packing up his camper, getting ready for a fishing trip on the west side of Rocky Mountain Natl Park. No bears!

Isn't interesting how with all these new pain rymidies that a good old heating pad does wonders! I know the nights when I could hardly walk I would climb into bed and the heating pad was such a relief!
Take care of yourself. Our thoughts are with you. I will add one thing that also helped me very much. Blue Emu! Get it a Wally World and spray it on the sore area before you get into bed.
It really works Wonders.

@sundance6 The old remedies still work . I use heating pad it draws the blood and that is healing , Ice is anti inflammatory. Epsom salts feel so good and you get your magnesium. Yes it is suprising how the old remedies work still right?

“No bears” I wouldn’t bet money on that statement. I can’t prove one way or the other but my friend in Colorado says there are Black Bears there and Mountain Lions too but no more Grizzlies. Mountain Lions are ambush hunters. When I was attempting to walk to the Hollywood sign the trail was closed because of lion attacks. The ranger said they drop off tree branches to joggers below.
Tell hubby to be careful,
