I will not lose my sense of humour!

on September 8, 2013

Yesterday and today, despite visits from many friends and family, it was just Anthony and me. Yesterday his eyes got wet when I had to leave, and today his eyes went blank when I had to leave because he didn’t understand why I had to come home and leave him at the nursing lodge.

I wish I could laugh it away.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED! You are surrounded by the prayers of many.

    I just realized after you stopped by my place that I’d stopped getting your posts in my reader. I have no idea what that was about, but I resubscribed, and now all seems good. Well, at least as far as getting your posts is concerned.

    I remember my mother saying at one point, “I’m done with funny-funny. Now, I’ll make do with weird-funny or ironic-funny.” That wasn’t the sort of thing my mom often would say – she wasn’t that reflective, or given to that kind of distinction – but it made sense to both of us, and on we went.

    I read what shoreacres wrote: I no longer get ANYBODY’S notifications, so my reading has gotten really random. Anyway, just wanted to say that I’m sending you virtual hugs.

    I always or usually wish I could laugh or sleep the day a way on days as you are speaking of

    it’s hard when we all know laughter is, most of the time, the best medicine. but we also know that sometimes the medicine tastes like shit…i’ll always have a spoonful of sugar handy to help those shitty days jules…it worked for mary poppins yeah? love you

    Julie, I can’t even imagine t he anqush you feel when Ants expresses his emotions in this manner. I know you want to pull him close and tell him “it’s all good,” and I know there are times when you want to hide and cry. You manage your emotions well, shnowing the love you have and the caring Ants needs. You are blessed that you have the ability. Please take care, Bill

  8. I wish I could hug you in person and share a bottle of wine with you!

  9. Oh Julie…my heart goes out to you…Diane

  10. I wish you could, too, but some things only wash away with tears.

  11. Colline says:

    I feel I want to give you a hug right now. I wish you all the strength you need Julie.

  12. I wish you could laugh it away also.

  13. Victoria says:

    Julie, I’ve missed you. I see things are not easy and I’m so sorry. My prayers are with you.

  14. Sending you hugs across the ether. xxxxxxx

    It must be very difficult for him. He’s in a strange place with no old friends around him when you leave. He probably looks around the place and sees no familiar faces.

    When you visit, he will be glad to see you and get upset when you leave.

    Keep your sense of humour please, however rotten things are. You need it and we selfishly enjoy it a lot.

  17. Humor is essential. I look for it anywhere I can, and sometimes I have to look very, very hard!

  18. Oh I feel your pain, all I can do is say a prayer for you and give you a virtual hug so consider yourself as huged

  19. Vicki (from Victoria A Photography) says:

    love is a beautiful wondrous thing – you and A are very blessed to such a special bond after so many years of marriage.

  20. I wish you could too. Your strength amazes me. I hope Anthony laughs for you tomorrow, and says something to make you laugh.

  21. janechese says:

    Good affirmation Julie!

  22. I understand Julie and I weep for you.

  23. Too bad they haven’t perfected cloning yet! Huge hug. Hang in there!

  24. adinparadise says:

    So sad, but you’re right Julie, your sense of humour will help to see you through this. Hugs.

  25. Oh, yes, do not lose your sense of humor!
