Melancholia

Posted 08-11-2010 at 08:30 PM by caninemom3

I did not think I would feel like this tonight. For most people August 11 is just the day before August 12 and August 12 is just another day. For me, however, August 12 is the commemoration of the death of my big brother, Andy, the brother I was closest to. I have posted in another blog about Andy and August 12 so I do not want to be repetitious here. My mood and emotions are dark this evening, darker than indigo. Why does it still hurt so much ?? I would have thought that after this long I would "get over" it. That is not the case. It is all still quite vivid to me and it hurts. As it was told to the family Andy had died sometime between 2 and 3 in the afternoon that day but the family did not find out about it until evening time because law enforcement could not decide whose jurisdiction it was. Ridiculous !!

Andy, you are supposed to be here. The pain of being without you and your friendship is paralyzing and excruciating at the same time. What I would give...

Talking To The Master

Posted 08-09-2010 at 09:41 PM by caninemom3

I had made a post to a thread here on the site called "Christmas Present Take Or Pass". I had posted the gift of being able to talk with any historic figure. George Broderick Jr.'s answer really started me thinking and thank goodness for George for posting it. He listed one of the people he would like to talk to as Jesus. What a wonderful conversation that would be !! To ACTUALLY talk face to face with HIM !! I imagine myself sitting across from Him. I can see him in my mind's eye. He has hair to His shoulders and of course a beard and He has the kindest and saddest eyes I could ever imagine. To be in His physical presence would be so peaceful, so full of a glowing kind of love I think. The kind of love not found on this earth, not ever experienced by me. Of course, He would have the scars from His first time on this earth. What would I say ?? Would I have the courage to speak ?? I think I would want to tell Him that I know I need to be more like Him. I would ask him why He even...

The Start Of The Magic

Posted 08-07-2010 at 08:17 AM by caninemom3
Tags christmas

It's coming, I feel it. Right now it is a kind of subtle giddiness inside me, a vague sense of excitement, an inside kind of glow. The Christmas season is just around the corner and I feel it !!! Do you feel it as well ??? I was in Rite Aid yesterday and they have Fall things out, which to me is a direct connection to Christmas !!! I am starting to hear songs in my head........."...angels we have heard on high..." Or .........."Chestnuts roasting on an open fire......" As this excitement continues to grow I always tend to grow more hopeful for the world. I am a little idealistic but each year as Christmas approaches I always have the hope that maybe people will finally realize we are all part of the same family, the human family and that some of the silly divisions between us will abate because of that realization and that everyone perhaps will be touched by the magic that is Christmas. The lights, the tree, the decorations, the carols, the time spent quietly appreciating...

A Sadness Of My Profession

Posted 08-05-2010 at 12:28 PM by caninemom3

I have been a medical transcriptionist for the last 16, nearly 17 years. This means that I listen to doctors dictate about patients and whatever may be ailing them. I type many of the medical specialities that are in existence. One of the specialties I type has to do with drug and alcohol addiction. Every now and again a patient's story gets to me. It should not, I know, as I do not know any of these folks but sometimes I get overwhelmingly empathetic. Today I typed a lady who was just 42 and a heroin addict. She also was a mother. She readily admitted to the doc that she was an addict and not ready to quit. I know some folks will feel that she makes and has made her own choices. I feel that way too to an extent but I still felt incredibly sad for her and her family. I have typed many reports like this over the course of time I have been employed in transcription. Why her ?? What was it about her story that bothers me so much ? I don't know. All I could do at one point was stop typing...
