But, I have been a busy bee writing my Lupus journal. When it comes right down to it, it’s a pretty depressing illness. And I have learned that my skills as an actress could probably win me an oscar….maybe I should think of a career change…lol.
But seriously, there has been all sorts of legislation to try and increase awareness of this illness, and it’s been a tough road. People just don’t know enough about it to react as quickly as they do other diseases.
But, other than writing about lupus on a daily basis I have been busy working at the shop with hubby. Normal days…life as usual.
I was looking at the clouds yesterday. It is monsoon season here so we get some pretty amazing looking clouds hangin around. It got me thinking about creation and the amazing-ness of this world we live in. WE have things so great here. The sun, the sky, a cool breeze on my face. It’s all so astounding. The power of God and his creation.
I was doing this introspective thinking as I vacuumed our pool yesterday. No, I’m not supposed to be out in the sun like that…and I don’t do it often. But I had my hat on, my sun glasses, sun screen…and I needed to feel useful. So, as I am marveling at the wonder of creation I happened to glance down. And there, right by my foot, was the most humongous Elvis Piggsley poop I had ever seen. And in that moment I thought “Wow, he must really feel better after that”. And then I thought how cool it must be to be a pig.
I mean really, think about it. All he does all day is eat…and he eats good….lay in the sun, take a dip in the pool, roll in the grass, get petted, and take extremely large poops. No constipation there at all. And, from what I can see no hemorrhoids either.
They say it’s a dogs life…well I disagree. If I had to pick…I’d be a pig.
That’s my rambling for the day!
